  • Griffitts earns second KPGA award

    Clear Creek PGA Professional Derrick Griffitts knows a thing or two about winning awards, and now has another to add to his mantle.

    At last week’s Annual Section Meeting and Awards Luncheon at Griffin Gate Resort in Lexington, Griffitts received the KPGA Player Development Award from Kentucky PGA President Ralph Landrum.

  • Titans fall to Cooper in state...

    Sometimes, it just isn’t your night.

    The Collins boys’ basketball team experienced that firsthand on Friday evening, falling in the KHSAA Sweet 16 quarterfinals to Cooper, 58-33.

    The Jaguars dominated the game thoroughly from the opening tip to the final buzzer. Cooper jumped out to a 17-4 lead after one quarter of play, holding Collins to just 1-8 shooting as a team in the opening frame.

    From there, Cooper never looked back, holding the Titans to just 23 percent shooting for the entire game and 17 percent from behind three-point range.

  • Collins bats go cold at Ballard

    In its second consecutive game in freezing temperatures, it was the Collins baseball team’s bats that went cold on Wednesday night at Ballard.

    The Titans (2-2) mustered just three hits in the loss, and missed out on several scoring opportunities against the Bruins (2-0).

    “I thought we played a little better than we did against Trinity,” Titans coach Mike Hammond said. “We’ve got three starters out, we’re a little shorthanded and had to start two sophomores and two freshmen tonight.”

  • No matter outcome, Titans are...

    By the time you read this, you will have already heard the outcome of Collins’ Sweet 16 matchup with Elliott County.

    But I just wanted to give my two cents on the Titans remarkable resurgence this season.

    Coming into the year, I had no idea what to expect from Collins’ basketball program. Like every other newcomer to Kentucky, I never fully understood the die-hard hoops fandom that comes with living in the Bluegrass State.

    I soon found out what the hype was all about.

  • Collins advances to Elite 8

    Collins boys basketball accomplished something on Thursday night that it never had in school history up to this point –  winning a game in the Kentucky High School Athletic Association Sweet 16 Tournament.

    Naturally, it did not come easy against a strong Elliott County team, but once again the Titans showed it had the guts to perform when it mattered.

  • Collins set to take on Elliott...

    When the Collins boys’ basketball team takes the floor tomorrow night in the opening rounds of the KHSAA Sweet 16 State Tournament, it will primarily be focused on shutting down Elliott County’s backcourt, which features the team’s three primary scoring threats.

    The Lions sport a trifecta of scorers at the guard spots in Korbin Spencer, Chase Porter and Tanner Dickinson. The Lions run a relatively small lineup in its starters, something the Titans should be able to take advantage of with size in the paint.

  • Shelby splits road series

    The Shelby County baseball team earned its first win of the season Friday at Carroll County, thoroughly dominating the Panthers.

    Catcher Matthew Ellis was the star on offense for the Rockets (1-2), ending his night 3-4 at the plate with a whopping six RBIs and drawing a walk in the 19-1 blowout of Carroll (0-2).

    As a team, SCHS tallied 22 hits and scored 13 of its 19 runs in the fifth and final inning.

  • Trinity races past Collins

    Amidst some snowy playing conditions Monday night, the Collins baseball team took its first loss of the season to a talented Trinity squad in a five-inning, run-ruled 17-0 Shamrocks win.

    The second inning was particularly rough for the Titans (2-1), as the team surrendered 11 runs to the Shamrocks (2-0) in the top of the inning.

    Trinity rode a double and five singles during the half inning of play to a 15-0 lead after two.

  • Turner sinks Anderson for region...

    Since last Wednesday’s victory over Oldham County, Collins senior Dominique Turner has had one goal: Make it back to Rupp Arena for the Sweet 16 State Tournament.

    The forward got his opportunity with five seconds remaining in regulation and down 53-52 to Anderson County, stepping up to the foul line with a chance to put his team ahead in the 8th Region Championship game.

  • Shelby struggles in season...

    Shelby County’s 2017 campaign got off to a rocky start Wednesday night, as the Rockets were defeated handily by Trinity, 10-0, in just five innings of action.

    Shelby’s hitting was non-existent in the loss, with the team being shutout on both the scoreboard and in the hits column.
