  • Titan will make strides on course

    The Collins girls’ cross-country program should see a great deal of improvement from last season’s group, with Madeline Petty serving as the team’s primary leader and only senior on roster for 2018.

    Head coach George Sanderlin has high expectations for a group with a solid amount of experience and talent returning from last season with another year under each respective runner’s belt.

  • Several new faces to lead...

    Having lost most of its senior-heavy roster to graduation with the conclusion of last season, the Shelby County boys’ cross-country team will attempt to once again rebuild and retool in 2018.

    The Rockets will have many new faces on roster for this season, with just one junior in Sam Powers and no seniors returning this year.

  • Young Titans will have room to...

    Collins boys’ cross country team is young, but prepared and ready to make a run at the region and state meets while cutting down on times coming into the 2018 season.

    Head coach George Sanderlin says that adding state champion athlete and senior T.J. Rawlins should help anchor the team in its trials while also providing leadership for a young collection of runners.

    “On the boys side, things are a little uncertain. However, senior T.J. Rawlins will be joining us,” Sanderlin said. “He adds leadership to a young team.”

  • Seniors will anchor solid SCHS...

    After going 19-16 and making a trip to the 8th Region Tournament last season, Shelby County will attempt to reload with younger athletes who saw a good deal of playing time last season.

    With three seniors on roster for this season’s group, the team will look to Amya Jones, Mollie Wills and Calley Moore to help lead a squad comprised of three juniors and five freshman athletes.

  • Titans expect to keep rolling...

    Although the Collins volleyball team lost two important net players in Julia and Nicole Belcher from last season, the Titans still return many key pieces that should translate into another successful year this season.

    With several players coming back in 2018, head coach Cary Clark has high expectations for this season’s team, and wants to continue dominating the 30th District matches in the process.

    Following its district tournament run, the team advanced to the 8th Region semifinals and was able to win a set over eventual champion North Oldham.

  • Rockets defeat Western Hills in...

    Shelby County continued to kick off its season from last week and on through Tuesday night, finishing out its opening slate with a tournament and its first head-to-head competition.

  • Collins defeats Atherton in...

    The Collins volleyball team began its season in dominant fashion at home on Tuesday night, welcoming Atherton to Shelbyville and taking the win over the Rebels in three sets.

    The first two sets of the match saw Collins (1-0) win over the opposing squad by scores of 25-16, going up two-sets-to-none quickly.

    The final set was a bit closer as the Rebels (0-1) made a late push, but the Titans were still able to edge out Atherton 25-21 to secure its first victory of the season.

  • Iceman, Brown finish top 10 at...

    Shelbyville-native golfers Daniel Iceman and Brandon Brown each represented the area well at the 99th Kentucky Open as both finished in the top-eight.

    Iceman finished with a 66-68-66-200, 13-under par, in a tie for third place, just two strokes back of winner Trey Shirley of Bowling Green, who finished at 15-under.

    “I was happy with the way I played overall,” Iceman said. “The goal is always to win and I put myself in a great position going into the final day. My goal was to get to -12 and I did a shot better and was able to get to -13.”
