  • 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...

    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.

  • 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.

  • Shelby halts rally for win over...

    Saturday’s matchup between Shelby County and Eastern came down to a bang-bang play in the final inning when Brandon Davis brought the game to an end.

    Eastern (8-9) was in the midst of a two-run, two-out rally in the top of the seventh inning when the Eagles’ base runner thought he should test Davis’ arm. And Davis passed with flying colors, gunning down the runner attempting to go from first to third. The outfield assist gave the Rockets (8-8-1) the 5-3 win.

  • Oldham, Butler trip up Titans

    The Titans ended a trio of weekend games with a loss at the hands of Oldham County on Saturday morning.

    The Colonels (9-8-1) peppered runs throughout each of the six innings en route to the 14-4 win while allowing the Titans (11-10) few opportunities to score.

    Despite the disparity in the final score, Collins was out hit by just a 10-8 margin. But a pair of big hits by Oldham put the game out of reach.

  • Lady Rocket Invitational...

    In addition to its loss to Collins on Saturday, Shelby County softball ended its slate of weekend games with a win, a loss, and a tie to close out the Lady Rocket Invitational Tournament.

    Shelby County 8, Williamstown 0
    While Shelby’s weekend slate may have opened on a rocky note, the Rockets ended Saturday with a strong showing against Williamstown (9-4).

    SCHS plated six runs in the first two innings while not allowing the Demons to do much of anything offensively.

  • Collins wins three in tourney...

    In addition to the Collins softball team’s win over Shelby County on Saturday, the Titans (14-5-1) turned in a successful weekend, winning three of its five contests against visiting teams, while dropping one game in the Lady Rocket Invitational over the weekend.

    “I thought we played really well this weekend,” Titans coach Charlie LeCompte said. “Paige and Carson each pitched well, and kept us in every single game we were in.”

  • Hisle leads Collins past DeSales

    It wasn’t Will Hisle’s day to pitch.

    Heading into Wednesday night’s matchup at DeSales, pitcher Tanner Brown was originally slated to start for Collins. But during warm-ups, Brown suffered a finger injury on his throwing hand, and was scratched from his start.

    Enter Hisle, who turned in one of the best outings of the season for the Titans (10-8) on the mound, picking up the win in a complete game performance.
