  • Rockets make big plays to beat...

    It was Kyler Dugle’s kind of game.

    An old school rivalry game where you had to scramble and fight on every possession, one that came down to the final seconds as Shelby County beat Anderson County 75-73 Thursday in the opening round of the 30th District Tournament at Spencer County.

    “It was a great game,” Dugle said. “It was fun to play in. We knew it was going to be crazy in this small gym with all the people in here and the rivalry.”

  • Kidwell keys win over Spencer

    The Collins High School boys’ basketball team prides themselves on their balance, but senior guard Brent Kidwell tipped the scales in the Titans’ favor Wednesday sparking a second half comeback as Collins beat Spencer County 48-43 in the first round of the 30th district tourney.

    Kidwell led Collins with xx points including scoring seven straight points during one run to allow the Titans to avoid the upset.

  • Anderson comes back to beat...

    A key two-minute turnaround for Anderson County left the Collins High School girls’ basketball team without an answer Tuesday as Anderson took a 58-44 win in the opening round of the 30th District Tournament at Spencer County High School.

    An upset-minded Collins team led through much of the game before Anderson County’s Kaci Curren sparked the Bearcats to their first lead of the game with just over three minutes left in the third quarter.

  • Shelby hoping to take title back

    Will recent history hold or can the Shelby County High School girls’ basketball team break Anderson County’s stranglehold on the 30th District basketball title at Spencer County tonight?

    Anderson has dominated the district and the region the past four seasons, but they aren’t the same squad that advanced in the Sweet 16 the past few years.

    The Bearcats split with Shelby County this season, and advanced to the finals with a hard fought win over an upset-minded Collins team while top-seeded Shelby cruised in a win over Spencer County.

    Fortunately for the Rockets, reserves Zephy Gray and Madison Todd came off the bench to each score a team-high 13 points and keep the Rockets in the correct flight pattern.

  • Cozzens leads swimmers into state

    Paul Cozzens is hoping to reach out and grab a little recognition for the Collins High School swim team.

    Cozzens, a junior, is coming off a successful regional meet where he was named the region’s Outstanding Male Swimmer after taking first in two events.

    “I’m very excited about the meet this year,” Cozzens said. “I think I have a chance to do something big this year. This will be the third year I have been in the state meet, and I have a chance to make it to the finals and score some points.

  • Collins’ balance leads to easy...

    The Collins High School girls’ basketball team sent its seniors out with a bang Thursday as the Titans rolled to a 42-18 win over Lexington Sayre.

    “We played well, it was good to get a game in and get a win,” Collins coach Phillip Conder said. “Today was all about our seniors and making sure they had a great day. Mary (Borders) and Shai’anne (Moorman) have meant so much to this team and we wanted to make sure they got a good sendoff.”

  • Collins plays well at the right...

    The Collins Titans did things at just the right time to get a 70-56 win over Christian Academy of Louisville Thursday on senior night.

    Coming off nearly five days with no practice or games, the Titans closed the first half with a solid spurt on defense and found the hot-hand of senior guard Deion Cochran for an 8-0 run to take a 35-23 halftime lead they would never relinquish.

  • REGION ROUNDUP: Simon Kenton...
