  • Collins to face Oldham County

    Fans of Collins boys’ basketball are hoping this season is a repeat of last year’s, after the Titans were paired with Oldham County in the 8th Region Tournament for the second straight season.

    Collins upset a then No. 13-ranked Oldham County last season to start a run that ended up in the Sweet 16, and the Titans are hoping to pull off the same sort of surprise this time around.

  • Middle schools to kick off...

    With tryouts wrapping up this week, both Shelby County West and East middle schools are looking to get a new program off to a hot start.

    The plan for this season is to field a combined schools unit with three teams separated by age-level into sixth, seventh and eighth grade teams. The schools assess later on whether to split the teams.

    Former Shelby County Little League coach Jonathan Carroll has been tabbed to help lead the teams.

  • Spencer County eliminates Collins

    Too many turnovers and not enough scoring doomed Collins girls’ basketball’s chances of advancing to the 30th District Tournament title game on Tuesday night, as the Titans took a tough 47-35 loss to Spencer County in a grind-it-out type of game.

    Closing out halves proved to be a serious challenge for Collins, who combined for just 10 points as a team in the second and fourth quarters.

  • Feltner’s perfect night leads...

    With both Shelby County and Collins looking to secure a trip to the 30th District Championship game and the 8th Region tournament, the Titans used a perfect night of basketball from Titans guard Jacob Feltner to end Shelby’s season on Monday night.

    Behind a scorcher of a second half, Collins shook off a strong interior effort from the Rockets and handed SCHS a 76-53 loss.

    Feltner led the way for Collins, totaling 20 points on a 9-for-9 shooting by attacking the basket to help push the Titans’ lead into double-digits in the third and fourth quarters.

  • Anderson rolls through Shelby

    Too big, too fast, too strong.

    These are the only ways to put into words what Anderson County girls’ basketball did to Shelby County on Monday night in the opening round of the 30th District Tournament.

    Anderson led from the opening tip-off, only increasing its lead through the rest of the game and heading to the district championship game on the back of a 66-29 win over the host Rockets.

  • PGA junior league signups open

    This season, the Professional Golf Association junior league in Kentucky will expand to nine Louisville-area courses, including a pair in Shelbyville.

    Clear Creek Executive Golf Course and Weissinger Hills Golf Course will join 7 Louisville-area courses in the league, with signups available now.

  • Titans use late momentum to top...

    A late run in the final minutes of the fourth quarter gave Collins girls’ basketball the push it needed to overcome a scrappy Christian Academy-Louisville team on Friday night.

    Starting at the 5:36 mark of the fourth quarter, the visiting Titans, holding a five-point lead, outscored the Centurions 10-6 behind a suffocating defense to hold on for a 57-42 win to close the regular season.

  • Collins whips CAL to close season

    Collins boys’ basketball put its offensive firepower on full display at Christian Academy-Louisville Friday night, blowing out the Centurions 73-40 and handing CAL its 11th consecutive loss of the season.

    Led by senior forward Nick Fort’s 19-point, seven rebound performance, the Titans jumped on CAL (6-20) beginning in the second quarter and did not let the home team get comfortable on either end of the floor for the rest of the contest.

  • Shelby’s comeback bid comes up...

    Shelby County boys’ basketball’s comeback bid at home against a visiting Gallatin County came up just short on Friday night, falling by a one-point margin to a very talented Wildcats team, 49-48.

    After a slow first half on both sides of the ball, Shelby (6-21) showed up to dominate in the back two quarters of play, with the Wildcats only able to muster a total of 14 points in the second half.

    The Rockets’ offense improved following a tough first half, but a nine-point fourth quarter ended up just shy of a win in the 8th Region loss.

  • Titans rebound to top Mustangs

    Despite playing its worst half of basketball all season against North Oldham on Tuesday night, Collins boys’ basketball did enough in the final two quarters to beat the Mustangs.

    The host Titans (20-8) committed numerous first half turnovers against North, throwing errant passes out of bounds and shooting just 30 percent from the field in the opening two quarters of action while managing just 14 points in the first half.
