  • Titans win in shootout

    Collins softball’s midweek games couldn’t have been more different in its first venture into district play, as the Titans were shutout by Spencer County on Tuesday before rebounding with a huge offensive effort and big win at Anderson County Wednesday.

    “We definitely hit the ball better against [Anderson] than we did against Spencer,” Titans coach Charlie LeCompte said.

  • Rockets split weekend tourney

    Due to weather, the Shelby County softball team was only able to host one day of the Lady Rocket Invitational on Friday night, but was able to take one of two games in hosting duty.

    The Rockets took game one against Boone County by a score of 6-2 before falling to South Warren by a final of 13-4 that moved SCHS to a record of 7-5 as a team this season.

  • Titans sweep Rocket Invitational

    The Collins softball team responded from its loss against Oldham County last week with a pair of offensive showcases at the Lady Rocket Invitational on Friday night, with 10 runs in each of its wins over Boone County and Assumption.

    “I thought we struck the ball well in both games,” Titans coach Charlie LeCompte said. “Cassie [Rannells] came up big for us against [Boone] in a big spot and let us pick up the win.”

    The Titans demolished visiting DeSales Friday, exploding for all 17 runs in the second, third and fourth innings.

  • Shelby falls at LexCath, 3-1

    The Rockets (2-7) played hard on the road Friday night against one of the top teams in the state, but came up just short against Lexington Catholic’s strong pitching staff.

    LexCath (8-3) pitchers Ryan Johnson and Henry Holthaus combined for a complete game, allowing just six hits and one earned run between them while striking out six Shelby hitters.

    On the Rockets’ side of things, starting pitcher Caleb Collins went all six frames on the mound for SCHS, allowing just four hits and one earned run while striking out four.

  • Collins drops pair of midweek...

    Collins softball came up short in a pair of close games during the midweek, dropping a game 7-6 at Holy Cross on Tuesday and falling 4-2 Wednesday at home to Oldham County.

    The losses bring the Titans record to 1-3 so far this season, having dropped three straight since defeating Mercer County in the season opener.

    “We haven’t been hitting the ball as well as we could have,” Titans coach Charlie LeCompte said. “That’s something we will work on moving forward.”

  • CAL defeats Shelby in pitcher’s...

    Visiting Christian Academy-Louisville needed just three hits Tuesday to defeat Shelby County, as the Rockets fell 3-1.

    Shelby’s Achilles’ heel in this one was timely hitting, as SCHS (1-6) struggled to move runners in scoring position to either tie or take the lead in the game.

    As a team, the Rockets stranded 10 runners on base, including two innings ending with the bases loaded.

  • Titans win on Pitts’ walk-off

    It wasn’t a home run or a double, but second baseman Trevor Pitts’ at-bat late in the ninth inning of Collins baseball’s Tuesday meeting with Manual was no less important.

    With the game tied at 10, and teammate Drew Goodlett representing the winning run on third, Pitts hit into a fielder’s choice, scoring Goodlett for the Titans 11-10 win over the visiting Crimsons.

    Thanks to Pitts’ RBI, Collins has won five consecutive games after starting the season 2-5.

  • Rockets use power to defeat...

    The hitting of Hannah Webb was on full display on Tuesday night, as Shelby’s senior shortstop bashed a home run and a double en route to an 11-7 win at Western Hills.

    Webb ended the night 3-4 at the plate, racking up four RBIs and helping preserve the lead for the Rockets.

    Not to be outdone, teammate and catcher Elizabeth Ivers knocked in a two-run homer of her own, as the catcher ended her night 2-4 on offense with three RBIs.

  • Titans take three straight

    The Collins baseball team closed a three-game home stand on Friday and Monday nights, going 3-0 in those games and bringing its season record to 5-6.

    Despite Collins’ bats outpacing the competition by a combined score of 21-6, head coach Mike Hammond said the Titans’ pitching set the pace.

    “We had three really well pitched games by Austin Ruble, Evan Payne and Cam Mattingly,” Hammond said. “They all three commanded the strikes zone of all three pitches and set the tempo early in each game.”
