  • Goal-oriented

    Callie Greiner is putting up mind-numbing numbers so far this season for the Shelby County girls’ soccer team.

    Through nine matches, Greiner, a 5-foot-3 senior midfielder, has scored an incredible 20 goals (2.2 per match). She also has six assists, accounting for an amazing 83.9 percent – or 26 – of the Rockets’ 31 goals heading into tonight’s match against Breckinridge County in the Meade County’s Lady Wave Classic.

  • Collins boys beat pair of ranked...

    In its two biggest road tests so far this season, the sixth-ranked Collins boys’ soccer team beat 22nd-ranked Oldham County, 3-1, last Thursday night, then followed that up with a 3-1 victory at 11th-ranked South Oldham on Monday night.

    Against the Colonels, the Titans (9-0-1) received two goals from junior Chris Shuck and a goal and two assists from senior Walker Andriot. Logan Bailey added the other goal for Collins.

  • Nakatani shows some leg

    LOUISVILLE – Matt Nakatani made his first game a memorable one.

    Nakatani, a Shelby County High School graduate and University of Louisville redshirt sophomore placekicker, booted three extra points and two field goals – including a 45-yarder – in his first career appearance in the Cardinals’ 35-7 victory over Missouri State on Saturday at Papa John’s Cardinal Stadium.

  • Eagles’ soar late to top Titans

    MIDDLETOWN – Last year Eastern outscored Collins, 35-0, in the second half of their football game, a 49-28 victory by the Eagles.

    On Friday night the third and fourth quarters were once again Eastern time.

  • Rockets throw the KO punch

    JEFFERSONTOWN – The Jeffersontown football team delivered the first punch, but Shelby County delivered the knockout blow Friday night.

    The Rockets rallied from early deficits of 7-0 and 14-7 to blast the host Chargers, 41-29 – a drastic turnaround from J-town’s 41-7 victory at Robert Doyle Stadium last year.

  • Kickoffs of Collins, Shelby...

    Due to the threat of bad weather tonight, the kickoffs for the Collins and Shelby County football games have been moved up one hour. 

    The Titans' game at Eastern will now begin at 6:30 p.m., as will the Rockets' game at Jeffersontown.

  • Titans slam Spencer, clinch...

    The newly-sixth-ranked Collins boys’ soccer team slammed host Spencer County, 7-1, Tuesday night in Taylorsville to clinch the regular-season district title and the top seeding in next month’s 30th District Tournament.

    The Titans (7-0-1, 3-0) tallied five times in the first 17 minutes on their way to an easy victory. Their first goal came in the fifth minute, when Chris Shuck headed home Mark Lanham’s corner kick.

  • Up, up and away – all day, every...

    Tuesday was another typical day for Collins senior Logan Bailey.

    It began with a drive to Frankfort in the morning for the first part of his school day, then it was back to Shelbyville in the afternoon for classes at Collins.

    After school it was football practice. Then after that it was back in the car (as his mother, Leigh, drove) so he could do his best Clark Kent impersonation – changing into his soccer uniform – and eat a drive-thru dinner before arriving in Taylorsville for a soccer match. 

  • Another tall test for the Titans

    The Collins football team has already played a pair of Class 6A teams, and one 4A traditional power, this season, but the Titans may face their toughest-test yet tonight.

    That’s when Collins will head down Shelbyville Road to take on Eastern at 7:30. The Eagles are ranked sixth in 6A in this week’s Associated Press poll.

  • Rockets hope for positive impact

    Despite last week’s disappointing, 35-34 loss to Anderson County, there were plenty of positives for Shelby County football coach Todd Shipley.
