Shelby County boys in attendance were (front row, from left) Christian Hull and Nathaniel Adams.

    Ten state champions were crowned in Waddy on Sunday.

  • EARLIER: Collins High School's turf field closed for summer

    Collins High School's state-of-the-art all-purpose field is in a bit of disarray.

    The field on the multi-sport stadium is surrounded by yellow caution tape tied to hurdles, ensuring no one will walk on the now slightly unstable sports turf.

    The multi sport Titan Stadium field is now off limits to the soccer, track and football teams that use it because soft spots have developed as a result of the extremely wet spring weather that has blanketed the area.
