  • Karas sisters finish 1,2 but Titans take 2nd

    It was only fitting that Collins’ sister act of Gabby and Caterina Karas took the top two spots in Saturday’s inaugural Titan Classic.

    Gabby Karas, a seventh-grader, won the race while her older sister, senior Caterina, finished second to lead the Collins girls’ cross country team to a second-place finish in the event that was held at Shelby County’s course (the same one that will be used for the Nov. 5 Class 2A, Region 3 meet). 

  • Mustangs rout Rockets

    The Shelby County boys’ soccer team’s season of improvement came to an end Monday night.

    Shelby County finished the season with a 6-12-1 record – four victories more than the Rockets had last season.

  • SCHS volleyball wins finale

    The Shelby County volleyball team had to work a little extra, but the Rockets beat host Scott County, 25-16, 33-31, to spoil the Cardinals’ Senior Night Thursday in Georgetown.

  • Spencer knocks out Collins

    A season that started with promise came to an abrupt end Monday night.

    The Collins girls’ soccer team, which won seven of its first eight matches this year, was shut out 6-0 by Spencer County in the first round of the 16th District Tournament at the Shelby County Athletic Complex.

    It was the third loss in the last four matches for the Titans, who were without four players (for various reasons) who had started during the regular season.

  • Titans quickly take care of Rockets

    The Collins boys' soccer team struck early, and often, Thursday night.

    The Titans tallied three goals in the first 13 minutes on their way to a 6-0 shutout of cross-town rival Shelby County at the Rockets’ Athletic Complex.

    Collins beat Shelby County 3-0 in the season-opener for both teams on Aug. 16. In that match the Titans led 2-0 at halftime, but couldn’t quite run away from the Rockets.

    It was a different story this time around.

  • Robert Hicks: author, speaker, storyteller

    Robert Hicks is a book-loving, history-revering storyteller. He crafts his stories in ways that keep history alive, because, he says “that’s what storytellers do.”

    Civil War history is Hicks’ forte, and his love and respect for the people who fought and died, as well as those who struggled and survived, come to life in his lectures and his writing.

    And he’ll bring that revered style to the Shelby County Library on Thursday for two events.

  • Dorman Center Carnival gets big turnout

    The first Dorman Center Carnival brought hundreds of folks out to Daniel Field on Saturday to celebrate and support the early intervention center.
