  • Driver Pearcy wrapping up...

    Collins eighth-grader Daniel Pearcy concludes a successful season in RFR (Ralph Firman Racing) Cars Indy Karting Series this weekend in the 10th annual Mooresville (Ind.) Grand Prix.

    Saturday and Sunday, Pearcy will compete in the Junior Supercan division on the .625-mile counter-clockwise road course.

    “I think it [Mooresville] is a fun track and always leads to good racing,” Pearcy, 13, of Shelbyville said in a press release earlier this week. “It will also be cool this year because everybody will be going counter-clockwise.”

  • SCHS volleyball team wins 2

    The Shelby County volleyball team won a pair of matches, the Rockets’ second and third in a row. Shelby County spoiled Henry County’s Senior Night, beating the Wildcats, 25-18, 25-10, last Thursday night and then rallied Monday night to beat host Owen County, 20-25, 25-11, 25-22.

    Against the Wildcats, the Rockets were led junior Shelby Tooke with four aces, sophomore Dasia Jones and seniors Chelsey Howell and Caty Hawkins with two kills apiece, and junior Ariana Jones and sophomore Kyndle Pace had three digs each.

  • Titans play their best but just...

    The Collins boys’ soccer team out-shot, out-possessed and for the most part outplayed eighth-ranked Male on Saturday.

    The only problem?

    The host Bulldogs outscored the Titans, 1-0, to take home the title in the final of their Bulldog Cup. Brian Romero’s rebound goal in the 22nd minute was the difference.

  • Fumbles, penalties, Colonels...

    Like a bad penny, some recurring problems keep turning up for the Shelby County football team.

    As they have been several times this season, Friday night the Rockets were plagued by fumbles and penalties – in addition to Oldham County’s quick-strike offense – in their 48-14 Homecoming loss at Robert Doyle Stadium. 

  • Battling Brooks leads Titans to...

    A titanic effort from Michael Brooks carried Collins on Friday night.

    Brooks, a senior running back/linebacker, rushed for 113 yards and one touchdown while recording 25 tackles and forcing two fumbles in the Titans’ 21-0 victory – the first shutout in program history – at Spencer County in its Class 4A, District 3 opener.

    “Michael, he was just unbelievable to watch,” Collins Coach Jerry Lucas said.

  • Titans, Rockets give it too many...

    Monday was a disappointing day for the Collins and Shelby County boys’ golf teams.

    No member of either squad advanced out of the 6th Region Tournament at Seneca Golf Course.

    The Titans took sixth place – the top two teams qualified for next week’s State Tournament at Bowling Green Country Club – with a score of 326, and the Rockets came in 17th (374).

  • Webb’s 71 takes title, leads...

    NEW CASTLE – Given the course and conditions, Shelby County girls’ golf coach Anna Simpson said she didn’t think anyone would break par in Tuesday’s Region 5 Tournament.

    As it turned out Simpson was surprised, very pleasantly in fact.

    That’s because Rockets sophomore Jordan Webb carded a 1-under-par 71 at Henry County Country Club to win region medalist honors and help Shelby earn a fourth consecutive berth in the State Tournament.

  • Webb wins region; SCHS places 2nd

    Shelby County sophomore Jordan Webb fired a 1-under-par 71 to win the Region 5 girls' golf tournament Tuesday at Henry County Country Club.

    Led by Webb the Rockets finished second in the team competition - seven shots behind top-ranked Sacred Heart - to also qualify for next week's State Tournament, which will take place next Friday and Saturday at Bowling Green Country Club.

  • Collins shuts out Spencer County...

    The Collins football team started district play with a 21-0 shutout of host Spencer County on Friday night in Taylorsville.

    The Titans got a titanic effort from Michael Brooks. The senior running back/linebacker rushed for 113 yards and one touchdown while recording 25 tackles and forcing two fumbles to lead Collins (3-2) to a victory in its Class 4A, District 3 opener.

    “It’s a big win for us, it’s our first win in the district,” Collins Coach Jerry Lucas said.

  • Rockets fall to Oldham County,...

    Oldham County spoiled Shelby County’s Homecoming with a 48-14 victory Friday night at Robert Doyle Stadium.

    The Colonels built a 41-7 halftime lead, scoring on every one of their first-half possessions, on their way to ending their four-game losing streak.

    Oldham County junior quarterback Brett Strnad threw four touchdown passes, three to Cody Oldham, and senior playmaker Kerry Smith tallied two TDs – on a 90-yard kickoff return and a 36-yard reception.
