  • Rockets romp, Titans claw way to...

    The Collins and Shelby County volleyball teams sent their seniors out in style Monday night.

    Both won their home finales, although they did it in different ways.

    The Rockets swept Grant County, 26-24, 25-14, at Mike Casey Gymnasium for their fourth consecutive victory, and the host Titans went the distance to beat 8th Region rival Bullitt Central, 16-25, 25-18, 25-18.

  • Collins girls win home soccer...

    The Collins girls’ soccer team closed out its home schedule with an 8-0 victory over Fern Creek on Monday night at Clear Creek Park. That was five days after visiting 15th-ranked North Oldham ended the Titans’ 2-match winning streak with a 5-0 victory Thursday night.

    Against the Tigers, senior Sarah Robinson's hat trick led the way for Collins.

  • Harover’s hard times end up at...

    If Shannon Harover has learned anything in the past few months there were two things:

    1.      No dancing during golf season.

    2.      She doesn’t like to watch golf when she knows she could be out there.

    Harover, a senior at Shelby County High School, will be out on the course for the Rockets this Friday and Saturday at the Bowling Green Country Club as they make their fourth consecutive appearance at the girls’ golf State Tournament.

  • Brooks' big game could be...

    Collins senior linebacker Michael Brooks has had some dominating defensive performances this season for the Titans’ football team.

    There was the 27-tackle performance and interception-return touchdown against Eastern.

    There was the 25-tackle game in the shutout of Spencer County.

    But Brooks, a sometimes running back, too, saved his best offensive game of the season for last Friday night’s contest against cross-town rival Shelby County.

  • Brooks’ offense, tough D dominate

    The Collins football team got an awesome offensive performance by Michael Brooks and an even more devastating defensive effort Friday night.

    Brooks, a senior running back/linebacker, scored four touchdowns and the Titans’ D had its best outing in the brief 19-game history of their program – holding host Shelby County to just 32 yards of total offense – in Collins’ 39-0 victory at Robert Doyle Stadium.

    The second meeting between the new cross-town rivals was all about first downs and fourth downs.

  • Brooks' 4 TDs lead Collins...

    Led by Michael Brooks' running, and a dominating defensive effort, the Collins football team defeated Shelby County 39-0 Friday night at Robert Doyle Stadium.

    The senior running back/linebacker rushed six times for 136 yards and three touchdowns - and also had a 10-yard TD reception - and added eight tackles for the Titans, who won the second meeting between the county's public schools for the second year in a row.

  • Five players to watch for Shelby...

    Devin Ashton

    The junior has swiftly switched from outside linebacker to defensive end this season. 

    "He took a position change and he's taken ownership of it and he was happy to do it for the team," Shelby County Coach Todd Shipley said.

    So far this season he has 16 tackles (7 solos, 9 assists) and plenty of compliments from the coaches.

    "He’s one of the hardest-working kids on the team," Shipley said.

    Michael Brooks

    For Jerry Lucas’ money Michael Brooks is the best defensive player in the state.

    "If there is a better defensive player out there, they'd have to prove it to me," Collins’ coach said of his senior middle linebacker.

  • Want a line on this one? Look ‘...

    There are plenty of storylines entering tonight’s football game between Collins and Shelby County.

    Here are a handful of those looking ahead to the 7:30 p.m. kickoff at Robert Doyle Stadium:

    1.      It’s the second year of the new rivalry.

    2.      The Rockets are looking to avenge last year’s 49-7 loss to the Titans, or at least prove that they are closing the gap between the two programs.

  • SCHS girls’ soccer team nips...

    Freshman Cali Mills’ goal in the final minute of regulation gave the Shelby County girls’ soccer team its fifth consecutive victory – 1-0 over Paris – Wednesday night at the Shelby County Athletic Complex.

    Senior Alex Patterson assisted Mills’ winning-goal.

    “We played well throughout the game, very solid defensively and our offense dominated but again could not finish,” Rockets Coach Joe Turner reported. “[I] loved the back line of our defense – Anna [Collins], Haleigh [Olsson] and Taylor [Claspill].”
