  • His batting average (.511) helps Collins breathe easier

    Ironically, Josh Dennison was allergic to grass as a child. 

    “I had exercise-induced asthma,” Dennison, a senior at Collins, recalled recently.

    But he eventually grew out of his allergy and into a heck of a baseball player.

    So far this season Dennison is putting up numbers that are nothing to sneeze at, pardon the pun.

    Through Wednesday night’s 15-3 victory over cross-town rival Shelby County, he was hitting a rather torrid .511 (24 for 47).

    Against the Raiders, Shelby County won one match easily – Micah Broughton, 6-2, 6-1, at No. 2 singles – while two matches went to third sets.

  • ‘Bubba’ is big in Titans’ romp

    The player nicknamed "Bubba" was big ”trouba” for Shelby County on Wednesday night.

    Sophomore Austin Perry went 3-for-4 with three RBIs to lead Collins' 14-hit attack in the Titans' 15-3, 6-inning victory over the host Rockets in the first meeting between the two teams on the baseball field.

    It was the continuation of red-hot stretch for Collins (14-4), which has won 10 of its past 12 games, and Perry, who is hitting .559 since becoming a regular in the lineup.
