  • Titans surge past Shelby

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

    Trailing 3-1 after two innings of play against cross-town rival Shelby County (17-17-1) in the opening round of the 30th District Tournament, the Titans (20-15) pieced together enough offense and pitching to edge out the Rockets by a 4-3.

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

  • Collins’ early rally defeats...

    While the game ran the full seven allotted innings, Collins’ softball team needed just one to advance to the 30th District Championship on Monday night.

    Three runs scored in the top of the first proved to be more than enough to top Spencer County 4-1 and knock the Bears from tournament play. The win earned the Titans a trip to tonight’s final against Anderson County, which topped Shelby County 11-1 in the tournament opener.

  • Rockets fall to Anderson in...

    Shelby County softball needed hits to overcome a powerhouse Anderson County team on Monday night, and the offense was just not there.

    While the Rockets drew first blood in the top of the first, host Anderson (17-12) rolled up 11 runs and 10 hits to top Shelby 11-1 in a five-inning run-ruled contest. The loss ends the Rockets’ (12-18-1) season in the first round of the 30th District Tournament.

  • Shelby, Collins prep for state

    With the Class AA State Track Championship beginning today at 4:30 p.m., both Collins and Shelby County high schools will look to add more banners to their respective gymnasiums.

    Leading the way in those efforts will be defending state long and triple jump champion Kyrien Stone from SCHS. Along with qualifying to defend his titles, Stone has also added the 300-meter hurdles to his event list this year.

  • Collins edges out Sacred Heart

    Although it seemed like a pitcher’s duel on paper, Wednesday’s softball matchup between Collins and Sacred Heart felt more like a one-sided affair on senior night.

    The Titans (22-8-1) outhit the Valkyries (12-12) by an 8-4 margin, scrapping out a 3-1 win.

    Paige Oldham was a large part of limiting Sacred Heart’s offense, with the Collins pitcher going seven innings with seven strikeouts.
