  • 2 methods, 2 success stories for Collins, SCHS

    One has done it with youth, the other with those long in the tooth (relatively speaking).

    But both county baseball teams are off to solid, if not surprising, starts so far this season.

    Both Collins and Shelby County, whose first scheduled meeting Thursday night was postponed until May 11 because of wet field conditions, have winning records (the Titans 8-2, the Rockets 10-5) but have achieved them by different designs.

  • Ex-Rockets help Titans blast off to better start

    The Collins and Shelby County softball teams have had their share of ups and downs this season, although the Titans have had more “ups” collectively. 



    The Titans (7-6, 2-1 in the 30th District) won their first three games, lost their next five (three by one run) and have won four of their last five. Their lone loss during that stretch was a 1-0 setback at then-second-ranked Mercy Academy.

  • Teams are a match set: Inexperience dominates

    The split of Shelby County may have affected tennis more than any other sport. All four county teams have had some early-season growing pains as they’ve all dealt with their fair share of greenness.



    Without any varsity experience – and a No. 1 singles player with no match experience whatsoever – Collins lost its four matches. The Titans (2-6), though, have won two of their last four, including a victory last week against Shelby County, albeit a short-handed Rockets team.

  • Titans have been surging; Rockets have roared ahead

    The boys’ track and field teams at Collins and Shelby County appear to be hitting their strides, but the girls’ teams for both are slightly slower out of the blocks because of illness and injury. 



    The Titans’ boys captured their first team title April 19 in their own all-comers meet, and the girls’ best finish was a second on Collins’ track the week before.
