  • Nethery leads Collins tennis to...

    The new can-do attitude of the Collins High School girls’ tennis team came full force Wednesday when the Titans beat Bullitt East 5-0.

    The match was highlighted by a gritty three-set win from No. 1 singles player Blair Nethery, who overcame not only a tough opponent in Samantha Kruse but also an asthma attack during the match.

    “Blair really gutted it out in the third set,” Collins coach Scott Ricke said. “She won some really tough points against a good player.”

    Nethery beat Kruse 7-5, 2-6 and 10-8 on a tiebreaker.

  • Collins tennis beats Bulllitt...

    With a 4-2 record the Collins High School boys’ tennis team has a solid mix of old and new.

    The Titans rolled to a 5-0 win over Bullitt East Wednesday.

    “I was very pleased with that,” Collins coach Keith Nethery said. “In general, we have had a really good start. We lost half the team from last year to graduation and most of the replacements are new to the team, and I would say they are doing very well.”

    Against East the Titans swept every match led by No. 1 and No. 2 singles players controlling their matches.

  • Anderson softball blanks Shelby

    What do 8 runs and 17 hits get you?

    For the Anderson County Lady Bearcats it was last Tuesday's win at Shelby County and a long conference with coach Brent Aldridge following the game.

    Anderson put a big time 8-0 win on Shelby County but Aldridge noted, “We are still rusty and didn't play clean.”

    The game was scoreless after two innings and not decided until Anderson erupted for three runs in the top of the sixth.

  • Owensboro too tall for Titans

    A little bit here and a little bit there led to the whole thing as Owensboro used several different runs to top Collins 55-38 Wednesday in the opening round of the KHSAA Boys’ Sweet 16 State Basketball Tournament in Lexington.

    “We really struggled in small segments of the game,” Collins coach Chris Gaither said. “When we had a chance to make a run or maybe even get the lead, we had a turnover or a bad shot and they converted on the other end.”

  • Seniors leave strong legacy

    While the score may indicate they got beat by a wide margin the Collins Titans 55-38 loss to Owensboro in the opening round of the Sweet 16 does not tell the whole story.

    “We just could not shoot the ball tonight,” guard Brent Kidwell said. “They were so big and hard to double team because they did a good job of getting the ball out to guards for open shots. Their guards did a really good job of feeding their post guys and with their size it was hard to stop them.”

  • Hornback named soccer coach at...

    New Shelby County soccer coach Michael Hornback may have stolen a line from the rock band The Who but the sentiment was apt when he told a crew of Shelby County soccer players “Meet the new boss, same as the old boss.”

    Hornback, a class 2000 Shelby County High School graduate and the Rockets’ JV coach the past four years, was introduced to the team as the new head coach replacing John Wood.

    Hornback let his players know he has high expectations for the program.

    “This is just so special after the last two years and how it ended for us,” senior guard Brent Kidwell said. “To win it with these guys you have grown up playing with there’s just nothing more you could ask for.”

  • Rockets snap Anderson's...

    After six long years of frustration, and sometimes heartbreaking losses, the Shelby County girls’ basketball team Friday broke Anderson County’s hold on the 30thDistrict championship with a 48-38 win.

    “It’s definitely been a long time coming and it feels great now that we have won it,” Shelby County senior guard Jordan Holt said. “It makes you feel like all the work we put in, in practice, all the work we did in the summer has paid off.”

  • Titans hold off Rockets to win...
