  • State Titles Are On The Horizon

    With my first season of covering fall sports for The Sentinel-News just beginning, I’m excited for both autumn and to get a taste of what both Shelby County and Collins have to offer athletically.

    When I began working here back in May, and was only able to capture a faint glimpse of what each school could do in baseball, softball, and track, although I was impressed with the immense amount of talent I saw around the county.
    But to say I’m excited to see the schools back out on the fields and courts is an understatement.
