  • Collins slips in loss to Eastern

    The Collins High School volleyball team took its fifth loss of the season at the hands of Eastern on Wednesday night.

    “Definitely disappointed, and thought it was a match we would win,” Titans coach Cary Clark said. “The main thing was, our serve-receive wasn’t where it needed to be. We were outserved by Eastern, and it took us out of our system.”

    The match was a back-and-forth battle to start, with the Eagles taking the first set by a score of 25-21. The Titans fought back in the following set, winning 25-17.

  • Titans look to rebound at Franklin County

    After suffering its second loss of the season on Friday night, the Collins High School football team (3-2) looks to regroup in a match-up at struggling Franklin County (2-4) tonight.

    Luckily for the Titans, Franklin is coming off of a loss of its own after being blown out by Shelby County 52-18 last week.

    A quick strike offense left the Flyers scrambling to make plays last week, which led to Franklin turning the ball over four times in the loss.

  • Titans race past South Oldham, 3-2

    The magic number for the Collins High School boys’ soccer team is two.

    When the Titans score at least two goals, the team is 4-0-1 this season, and 0-10 when it does not.

    That same pattern held on Tuesday night, when Collins put three goals in the net and defeated South Oldham by a score of 3-2.

  • Rockets rally for tie against Western Hills

    On Tuesday night, the Shelby County High School boys’ soccer team fought Western Hills to a 2-2 tie.

    “I’m satisfied with the tie, because a few weeks ago, Western Hills beat Woodford County, who is a top-ten team,” SCHS coach Michael Hornback said.

    The Rockets first goal came from the foot of junior forward Caleb Patten, who put in his team-leading 15th goal of the season thanks to an assist by senior Kyrien Stone.
