    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.

    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.

  • 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.”

  • Shelby drops weekend set

    Shelby County softball took a trio of tough losses this weekend against quality teams in Ryle, Grayson County and Jeffersontown to put the Rockets at a 3-4 record on the season.

    The Grayson County and Ryle losses came on Friday at the Vernon Bibb Memorial Showcase, while the contest against J-Town was held on Monday.

  • Rockets close out Memphis tourney

    Shelby County baseball ended its slate of games in Memphis with a 9-0 loss at the hands of Bartlett, Tenn. on Friday.

    The Rockets (1-5) could not find a way to get on base against a complete game performance by Panthers’ pitcher and University of Southern Mississippi signee Chris Braswell.

    The Barlett hurler allowed just two hits in seven innings of work against SCHS, striking out seven batters and walking only one.

  • Collins falls at Butler

    A strong hitting performance by host Butler and several defensive mistakes committed by Collins ended with the Titans taking a tough 9-2 loss at the hands of the Bears on Monday night in Louisville.

    Butler (4-2) outfielder Alyssa Brock made the most of her plate appearances in the victory, going 2-3 and accruing four RBIs at the plate to help hand Collins its first loss of the year.
