  • Titans late rally stopped short

    While the first and last innings may have been successful ones for Collins softball, very little went right between.

    From the second until the sixth frames, Anderson scored nine of its 10 runs and halted a late Titans (15-6-1, 1-1 district) rally that came a bit too late in a 10-6 loss on Wednesday.

    Defeating Anderson County (9-6, 2-0 district) is as much of a mindset as it is actual performance, according to Collins’ head coach.

  • SCHS splits with Anderson

    SCHS closed its district-opening series on Tuesday night with a 7-3 home win over the visiting Bearcats.

    The offense was significantly more aggressive than it was the night before, racking up 13 hits and jumping on Anderson (8-6) early.

    Shelby’s biggest offensive inning came in the bottom of the third while up 1-0.

    The Rockets (9-9-1) tallied up a double and five singles in the frame to jump up 5-0 and put the pressure on the Bearcats to score.

  • Collins sweeps series with Spencer County

    A pair of top-notch pitching performances in as many days allowed Collins baseball to pick up its first district wins of the 2017 season.

    Cameron Mattingly’s outing capped off the sweep with a 6-2 victory on Tuesday night over Spencer.

    The junior pitcher took to the hill, going six full innings while allowing just four hits and an earned run while striking out five batters in his fourth win of the year.

  • J-Town outlasts Shelby in extras

    Shelby County softball’s Tuesday night matchup with Jeffersontown turned out to be more of an exercise in patience for both teams.

    Both the Rockets (5-6-1) and Chargers were knotted at six after seven innings of play, where it would take another two full innings to decide a winner.

    Shelby’s hitting cooled off after a fifth inning RBI by shortstop Hannah Webb brought the game to the 6-6 deadlock.

  • Community input needed for new comp plan

    Do you have ideas about how Shelby County’s anticipated population growth should move over the next two decades?

    Ryan Libke, Triple S Planning Commission executive director, is seeking input from the community regarding ideas about road improvements and new roads along with other thoughts and ideas about developing the county.

  • Oldham leads Collins past Shelby

    Starting pitcher Paige Oldham did a bit of everything for Collins softball to help top rival Shelby County on Saturday afternoon.

    Oldham led the team at the plate, with three hits and two RBIs, while tossing four-and-a-third innings, allowing the Titans to mount a comeback win over the Rockets.

    Down 3-1 after just one inning, Collins (14-4-1) added three runs of its own in the third, along with one final run in the fourth to close out SCHS (5-5-1) by a score of 5-4 and take its 14th win of the year.
