  • Rally sends young Titans to victory

    Youth was served Saturday for the Collins girls’ basketball team.

    Led by a pair of middle-schoolers, the visiting Titans rallied to beat Bardstown, 50-45. Eighth-grade center Mackenzie Raizor had a monster game with 17 points and 16 rebounds, and sixth-grade guard Myah Pace added 11 points.

    Youth was served Saturday for the Collins girls’ basketball team.

    Led by a pair of middle-schoolers, the visiting Titans rallied to beat Bardstown, 50-45. Eighth-grade center Mackenzie Raizor had a monster game with 17 points and 16 rebounds, and sixth-grade guard Myah Pace added 11 points.

  • Titans bedeviled by poor shooting

    The Collins girls’ basketball team struggled to find offense, and the basket, Saturday at Henry Clay.

    The Titans tallied single digits in three of four quarters and shot just 27.3 percent on their way to a 39-29 loss to the host Blue Devils.

    “Defense was there. We just missed some shots,” said Collins Coach Phillip Conder, whose team was 12-for-44 from the field and 3-for-8 from the free-throw line.

  • Rockets (1 FG) go down easily

    The Shelby County girls’ basketball team didn’t show its basket much love Saturday in the Duke’s Sporting Goods Valentine’s Shootout.

    The Rockets were held to just one field goal on their way to a season-low point total in their 70-9 loss to host John Hardin.

    “Pretty dismal performance,” Shelby County Coach Mike Sowers said. “We missed some very easy shots early on, then I think frustration set in, and a lot of our ladies just quit looking to score.”

  • Titans bounce back to end skid

    The Collins girls’ basketball team picked up a much-needed victory Thursday night.

    The Titans outlasted Louisville Moore, 49-44, to end a 3-game losing streak as they continued to play without their leading scorer and rebounder.

    “We’ll take the win, I promise you that, after three losses in a row,” said Collins Coach Phillip Conder, whose team once again played without sophomore forward Aaliyah Wells.

  • Mouser’s makes deliver sweet victory

    Before Rebecca Mouser stepped to the free-throw line with the score tied and 1.6 seconds left in overtime Monday night, Collins girls’ basketball coach Phillip Conder called her over and told her a joke.

    Mouser didn’t get it (the joke), but that didn’t matter, because she hit it (her free throw).

    Mouser, a junior forward who had missed all six of her field-goal attempts, then hit the second, even though she tried to miss it, to give the Titans a 49-47 victory over Carroll County.

  • Shelby teams swim – powerfully into State

    The Shelby County and Collins swim teams made big splashes at the Region 3 championship this past weekend.

    The Rockets boys’ team tied for second, and its girls finished fourth Friday and Saturday at Woodford County High School. The Titans’ girls were sixth and their boys ninth.

    Woodford County won both titles.

    Four individuals and six relays teams from the county qualified for the 2011 KHSAA  Swimming & Diving meet Feb. 24-26 at the University of Louisville.

  • Duckett’s family hopes leads are in the cards

    Nearly two and a half years have passed since James Duckett was murdered at his home on Rockbridge Road, but his sister Katherine Nichols still talks to the police at least once a week.

    She wants to know if there is any progress on a trail that feels colder and colder and his killer remains at-large.
