  • HIGH SCHOOL FOOTBALL: Undefeated...

    The Collins football team will face a tall task this week as it looks for its first win on the season against Oldham County.

    The Colonels (2-0) are a defensive juggernaut, having not surrendered a point this season in shut out wins over Henry County, 37-0, and rival North Oldham, 31-0.

    And it’s not just the end zone they’re protecting. Oldham County has allowed just 188 total yards through two games, with only 51 coming on the ground.

    Collins head coach Jerry Lucas said the Titans (0-3) will need to bring their best on offense.

  • Collins takes 6th, 7th at Shelby...


    The Collins girls cross country team had county’s best showing at the Shelby County Invitational Saturday.

    The annual meet hosted at the always difficult Rockets’ course on Benson Road and Rocket Lane featured 12 girls teams and 13 boys squads.

    Shelby County’s Evelyn Enriquez was the top finisher from either of the county’s schools, placing 15th overall with a time of 22:34.37 in the girls’ race.

  • Meade stuffs Shelby, 36-0

    Shelby County football wasn’t able to get much of anything going on offense at Meade County on Friday night, being shut out by the Green Wave in a 36-0 road loss.

    The Rockets (2-1) managed to come up with just 89 yards of total offense in the loss and 10 yards rushing as it struggled with the size and speed of Meade County (1-2).

    “I think their physicality really took us out of it early on,” SCHS coach Todd Shipley said. “We played better on defense in the first half, but our offense never really got clicking.”

  • Titans fall at home to Ballard

    The Collins football team had no answer for a talented 6A team in Ballard on Friday night, as the Titans dropped its home opener 38-6 and fell to 0-3 this season.

    Bruins’ quarterback Austin Carr did most of the damage through the air for Ballard (1-2), going 10 for 20 with 188 passing yards and a pair of touchdowns and leading to 38 unanswered points before Collins finally hit paydirt with four minutes to go in regulation.

    The Titans struggled to do much offensively during the game, accumulating just 171 total yards in the loss.

  • Titans roll through visiting...

    The Collins volleyball team disposed of district foe Anderson County in quick fashion on Tuesday, as the Bearcats did not score more than 13 points in each of its three sets and the Titans came away with the victory.

    “[Tuesday night] was a strong match for us,” Collins coach Cary Clark said. “We had no glaring weaknesses and stayed focus through out the entire match. Our defense was highlighted with 26 digs on 45 attempts with only five errors and 10 blocks.”

  • Shelby travels to take on Meade...

    Shelby County will have a chance to get revenge for last season’s 58-13 defeat at the hands of Meade County tonight, as the Rockets make the trip to Brandenberg to try and even the series with the Green Wave.

    So far this season, Meade (0-2) has had a rough slate to open the season, falling at Simon Kenton two weeks ago and was defeated by Anderson County last week.

  • Titans play host to Ballard

    Tonight will mark the first win of the year for either Collins or Ballard, as the two football teams square off in Shelbyville at 7:30.

    Both squads sit at 0-2, as Male most recently walloped the Bruins last week at a final score of 47-0.

  • Oldham County dominates Collins

    The Oldham County soccer team had little difficulty in finding the back of the net early and often on Tuesday night, handing host Collins a 5-2 loss behind a first half onslaught.

    OC was able to score three times in the first half behind breakaway goals, largely thanks to forward Aaron Cook, who found space between the pipes twice in the first 20 minutes of play to give the Colonels (2-2-1) an early advantage.

    Collins (1-4-1) keeper Jorge Garrido made some solid saves early in the game, but the constant pressure applied by Oldham was too much.

  • Rockets dominate Atherton

    The Shelby County football team did whatever it wanted to in its home-opening contest, rolling up 336 rushing yards and running through a visiting Atherton 49-12 Friday night.

    Quarterback Zach Miracle reached the end zone three times on the ground en route to the victory to help the Rockets (2-0) earn the win.

    In addition, Miracle went five-of-seven on passing attempts, for 70 yards and a first-quarter touchdown to receiver Cameron Armstrong to help open up an early lead.

  • Shelby inducts annual Hall of...

    As a part of Shelby County High School’s fourth annual Hall of Fame class, four individuals were inducted on Saturday night to go along with one historic SCHS team.

    Jamie Robinson Roby was one of the four individuals selected, having graduated from Shelby in 1997.

    Roby played varsity softball from 1991 until her graduation, spending ’91-’93 as a part of the slow pitch program.
