  • Jacobs takes state title in discus

    Collins’ Nathan Jacobs has been working hard all season to perfect his discus throws, and the results of his labor showed on Friday at the KHSAA AA State Track Meet.

    The game may have started off shaky Monday for the Collins baseball team, but it sure didn’t end that way.

    Collins pitcher Cameron Mattingly was a large part of the comeback effort.
