  • No track, no field, no problems

    The Collins track & field teams have neither a track nor a field on which to practice or compete, but that shouldn’t stop the Titans from having a successful second season.

    Collins should be one of the better teams in Class AA, especially on the girls’ side, where senior Caterina Karas is the defending state champion in two events.

  • SOFTBALL: Rockets, Titans lose to Jefferson County teams

    The Shelby County softball team suffered its second narrow defeat of the young season as host Manual topped the Rockets, 5-3, Wednesday in Louisville.

    Shelby (0-2), which lost its season-opener, 6-5, at North Oldham on Monday, fell behind the Crimsons (1-1) early when Manual plated one run in the bottom of the first.

  • Rockets get off and running – and jumping

    The Shelby County track and field teams began their outdoor seasons Tuesday.

    The Rockets’ boys’ team finished seventh and their girls’ squad 15th in their All-Comers meet at Robert Doyle Stadium.

     

    Boys 8th out of 15

    The Rockets won one event on the track, and they scored ample points in the field events on their way to tallying 50.5 points to finish seventh among 18 teams. Fort Knox, which finished fifth in Class A at last year’s state championships, won the meet with 86 points.

  • Collins’ multipurpose field taken down to the dirt

    Collins High School’s multipurpose athletic field has hit yet another snag as it lies awaiting repair: The dirt beneath it isn’t suitable.

    The field, which was closed for use 10 months ago after soft spots were found underneath the turf, is now just dirt, with the entire turf and drainage system removed and the original hope that it would be finished by the end of March is now not possible. The field cost $868,000 when the school opened in 2010.

  • Simpsonville hopes to ‘light up’ downtown sidewalks

    If all goes according to plans, the south side of U.S. 60 in Simpsonville will have a charming new look by the time the holiday lights are turned on next fall.

    That’s the timetable and concept under which the Simpsonville City Commission heard a presentation from Joe Grider of HNB, the firm that is engineering the construction of its new Village Center sidewalk project.
