  • Collins’ students earn ‘take charge’ grant

    Collins High School was among 41 high schools selected by the Kentucky Department for Public Health (DPH) and its partners to receive grants to develop or improve the nutritional, physical activity or tobacco prevention policies at their schools.

    The $500 grants are part of the Students Taking Charge program offered by Kentucky Action for Healthy Kids (KYAFHK). Collins High received a grant for a tobacco awareness plan. “Health leads to a wealth of knowledge, success, and a long life which students care about,” said junior Taylor Royse.

  • Titans show a little 'pop' when it counts

    The Collins softball team picked up where it left off last season.

    The Titans, who showed a flair for the dramatic – and not for the weak-hearted – in their run to the 8th Region title game last season, started off their second campaign with a walk-off victory Tuesday. 

    Sophomore Sydney Cloyd’s high pop up in front of the plate was misplayed by South Oldham’s catcher, allowing junior Bailey Rankin to score from third base in the bottom of the seventh inning and give host Collins a 4-3 victory.

  • BOYS’ TENNIS: SCHS wins, Collins loses

    The Rockets won their second match of the season Tuesday, beating host Frankfort, 3-2, at Kentucky State University.

    Shelby County’s victories came at No. 2 singles and in both doubles matches.

    At No. 2, eighth-grader Jeron Russell beat Seth Midkiff, 6-2, 4-6, 10-1 in a third-set, 10-point tiebreaker. At No. 1 doubles, senior Eric Schreiner and sophomore Doug Martin were victorious, 6-3, 6-2, and at No. 2 doubles eighth-grader Luke Brown and freshman Luke Dove won ,6-1, 6-0.

  • Rockets are young but not as young as last year

    What the Shelby County softball team lacks in depth it will try to make up for with determination and dedication this season.

    The Rockets will be one of the smallest teams in the 8th Region, if not the state  – with only 10 players on their varsity roster – but they’ll also look to improve on their five victories from last season.
