  • Shelby County ready to run in 2018

  • Colonels hold off Titans in region tournament

    With two minutes remaining in regulation, and Collins boys' basketball down 61-54 to Oldham County in the opening round of the 8th Region Tournament, it seemed as if the Titans would be able to make a run after a huge defensive play turned into points at the other end of the floor.

    Following a steal, senior guard Jacob Feltner launched a three-pointer with a hand in his face, cutting the Colonels' lead down to 61-57 with a timeout being called by Collins coach Chris Gaither to regroup defensively before the next possession.
