  • Collins tops Shelby for district...

    Collins volleyball’s domination of the 30th District continued on Tuesday night, as the Titans claimed a fourth consecutive district title with a three-sets-to-none victory over crosstown rival Shelby County.

    “We were a little bit sloppy execution-wise,” Titans coach Cary Clark said. “I’d love to see the team have a little more of a killer instinct. There were a lot of times tonight I thought we had [Shelby] on the ropes, and it could have gone a lot quicker and easier.”

  • Collins falls to Oldham

    With less than five minutes remaining in regulation and the score knotted at 1-1, Oldham County’s Brandon Barrera cashed in on a cross, burying a shot in the back of the net for a 2-1 Colonel’s lead and eliminating Collins from the 8th Region Tournament in the process.

    “We let our guard down in the midfield,” Titans coach Jamil Shalash said. “We still did not give up, we had some chances in the last four minutes to no avail.”

  • Hometown Showdown

    Tonight’s matchup between rivals Collins and Shelby County may have more on the line than just bragging rights.

    With both teams sitting atop the 30th District at this point in the season, the Rockets and Titans are both looking to clinch a district title and secure a home playoff game in the process.

    In order to accomplish this, both will use contrasting offenses, with Shelby showing off the power running of a triple-option attack and Collins employing a high-flying offense that has put up video game-like numbers this season.

  • Colonels eliminate Titans

    Following a successful run through the 30th District Tournament, Collins girls’ soccer season came to an end on Tuesday night, in a 10-0 blowout at the hands of Oldham County.

    “Not much to say, we got outplayed,” Collins coach Steve Nash said. “It’s been a great season for the girls and we look forward to building upon our successes.”

    The Colonels (11-8-2) made the Titans pay early, scoring seven goals before the horn for the halftime break sounded.

  • Titans advance in region play

    The Collins girls’ soccer season will continue after a decisive 4-2 win over visiting Owen County Monday night.

    The victory over the Rebels was a big step for the girls’ soccer program, as the team earned its first region tournament win in school history.

  • Collins edges out Simon Kenton

    This postseason has not been an easy one on the nerves of Collins boys’ soccer fans.

    After claiming the 30th District Title on penalty kicks last Thursday, the Titans used extra time to defeat visiting Simon Kenton Monday, once again on penalty kicks.

    Taking a 1-1 tie into overtime, the Titans outshot the Pioneers 4-3 in PK’s, and sealed a trip to the 8th Region semifinal in the process.

  • Rockets rally to top Bears

    Monday’s 30th District volleyball tournament opener showcased the will of Shelby County in a win over Spencer County.

    With the Rockets up two sets to none, the momentum quickly shifted in Spencer’s favor, allowing the Bears to climb back into the match in the third and fourth sets, with two close 25-22 wins to send the match to an abbreviated fifth set.

  • Collins coasts to district final

    Collins’ volleyball came out of Monday’s 30th District Tournament opener on a high note after drilling visiting Anderson County team in straight sets.

    Despite the lopsided scores, the Titans’ coach was not thrilled with what he saw from his team.

    “Our execution wasn’t great tonight,” Titans coach Cary Clark said. “But we had a little more talent than they [Anderson] did. It will be a tough game [for the district title] one way or another.”

  • Shelby County rallies to top...

    At halftime of Friday’s contest between Shelby County and Spencer County, the Rockets trailed the visiting Bears 7-6. Shelby head coach Todd Shipley had a message for his players: The way this game goes is up to you.

    The Rockets had fallen behind the Bears after missing an extra point following a kick return touchdown by William Davis, but needed to cut down on mistakes in the second half in order to pick up the win.

    Shelby did just that, defeating Spencer handily when it was all said and done.

  • Titans overcome slow start, rout...

    After a slow start saw Collins score just six first-half points on a pair of field goals from kicker Webb Bates, the Titans’ offense found its momentum in the second half on the way to a 41-0 rout over North Oldham Friday.

    The Titans used five second-half touchdowns behind the arm of senior quarterback J.R. Lucas and the legs of running backs Zach Stucker and A.J. Bradford to blow out the Mustangs.

    Stucker struck first after the break, capping an eight-play drive with a touchdown run to put Collins up 13-0 in the third.
