  • Titans rain on John Hardin’s visit, rout Eminence

    The Collins baseball team beat John Hardin and its biggest foe this season – the weather – Monday night.

    The Titans scored a pair of runs in the first and fourth innings on their way to a 4-2 victory over the visiting Bulldogs, then hustled to get the tarp over their infield before light rains moved into the area.

    In the game Collins (6-2), which has seen nine games rained out this season, used a formula similar to its other victories this season – pitching and defense.

  • Rockets’ blunders throttle them at liftoff

    This one didn’t take extra innings, but Shelby County baseball coach Bart “Rudy” Roettger is hoping his team learned a little extra from this past Thursday’s 10-3 loss at Anderson County.

    The rematch of last year’s 30th District and 8th Region finals – both of which went extra innings and were won by the Rockets – may look like a mismatch because of the final score, but it wasn’t.

  • Collins girls top South Oldham in tennis

    The Collins girls' tennis team notched a big victory over 8th Region foe South Oldham this past Thursday. The Titans beat the visiting Dragons, 3-2.

    "We were really excited," freshman Paige Kregor said. "They're really good. We weren't expecting to beat them at all. Ever since I've been playing here we've always lost to the Oldham teams."

    All of Collins’ victories came in singles: No. 1, senior Ellie Watts, 6-1, 6-2, No.2 Kregor, 6-2, 6-3, and No. 3, senior Keira Lopez, 7-5, 6-1.

  • Titans rally to win 3rd in a row

    The Collins softball team's hitting was slow to arrive Monday, but it was better late than never.

    The Titans tallied just three hits in the first three innings against visiting Louisville Southern before racking up four hits in the fourth and fifth innings as they rallied for a 4-2 victory.

    "Once we started hitting the ball we did all right," said Collins coach Jim Axline, whose team won its third consecutive game. "[Before that] we just weren't getting the bat on the ball.
