  • Wells powers Titans to near their peak

    The Collins girls’ basketball team, led by junior forward Aaliyah Wells, reached a new plateau Monday night, but Coach Phillip Conder believes his team can climb higher.

    The Titans won three consecutive games between last Thursday and Monday night ­­­– beating Moore, 62-36, Thursday and Ballard, 50-45, Saturday at home, then defeating host Carroll County, 56-25, Monday night – to reach the 20-victory mark. Wells led the way in those three games, averaging 25.3 points and 10.7 rebounds.

    Sophomore guard Ralphie Stone scored a team-high 10 points off the bench to lead a very balanced Collins attack. In all 12 players scored for the Titans, including their two new faces – brothers Norvis and Terez Smith.

    “We had an incredible fifty-five personal-best times for the two-day meet,” said J.P. LaVertu, who coaches both Collins and Shelby County. “We had an amazing thirty-five swimmers come back to swim the second day of regions. Six relays made state, and four individuals with a total of seven individual swims qualified for the state meet as well.”

  • Rockets get 15th victory

    “That’s a tremendous accomplishment for these kids,” said second-year Shelby County Coach Mike Sowers, whose first team went 3-22. “It just shows how far along they’ve come.”
