  • Post 37 rips through 4-game...

    The Shelbyville American Legion Post 37 baseball team has come out of the gate on fire.

    The group of players from Shelby and surrounding counties opened the summer season over the weekend in Floyds Knobs, Ind., picking up three wins in four games and averaging a blistering 11 runs per game.

    “Overall, I was pleased with the weekend,” said coach J.R. Wiley. “I couldn’t have been happier with the pitching or the hitting.”

  • Rockets vs Titans: Round 1 comes...

    Cross-town rivals Shelby County and Collins high schools took to the diamond Monday night and the two teams didn’t disappoint with pitchers Will McDonald and Michael Gammons turning in gems on the mound, as Collins squeezed out a 1-0 win on the road and took command of the 30th District race.

    The two pitchers combined for 14 strikeouts in complete game performances, but it was Collins’ bats – with McDonald in another key role – that finally broke through in the 6th.

  • A perfect return

    A Collins junior was back on the court again less than two months after recovering from brain surgery.

    Ashton Schneider, 16, said she was glad to be back for her first match Friday, a rival game between Collins and Shelby County High School in which the Titans came out on top.

    “I had practice yesterday, but this is my first game,” she said, relaxing on bench waiting for her turn on the court.

    She recalled that day early in the year when she was stricken.

    The Collins and Anderson County baseball teams could have spent their entire summers at Kings Island and not have had a roller coaster ride like they experienced Tuesday night.

    Collins spotted the visiting Bearcats an early six-run lead, then rallied to overcome a 5-run deficit before holding on for a wild 13-12 30th District win.

    Collins overcame eight errors to post its second win over Anderson in as many nights and in the process evened its record at 6-6, 2-0 in district play.

  • Collins burns porous Bearcats...

    LAWRENCEBURG – Collins did what it has to do while Anderson County continued what it can’t keep doing Monday night.
    On a night when the temperatures dropped more than 25 degrees between the first pitch and last out, Collins took a 9-5 win and stole a 30th District victory on the road. The Titans took an early lead in the district seeding race, manufacturing runs and taking advantage of a generous Anderson defense.
    Collins improved to 5-6 on the year and 1-0 in district play. Anderson is 0-10 and 0-1.

  • Titans end 4-game skid, top...

    The Collins baseball team kicked a four-game slide with a 6-3 win over visiting DeSales (4-10) Monday.

  • Shelby, Collins track teams eye...

  • Collins girls' tennis team...

    The Collins girls’ tennis team whipped visiting Anderson County 4-1 Wednesday, dropping only the No. 2 doubles match, which the team had to forfeit because they don’t have enough players.

    “We only have five players right now, so we can’t field a number two doubles team,” coach John Davis said. “So we have to forfeit that match. But other than that we played really well [Wednesday] night.

    “Anderson County is a good win for us, they’re usually very good and they beat us at the end of the season last year.”
