  • Collins boys take home meet

    The Collins boys’ track and field team turned in arguably its most successful meet of the season with a win at home Friday.

    The Titans took first place in the boys’ standings with 107 total points, finishing three ahead of second-place North Bullitt.

    Thanks to a trifecta of school records being set, Collins cruised even with most of its varsity athletes resting in preparation for the upcoming region meet.

  • Shelby hits stride in win over...

    Shelby County came into Thursday’s matchup at Butler struggling from the plate, but the Rockets left Louisville having found its hitting stroke once again.

    After scoring one run in its previous three contests combined, Shelby’s (11-12-1) offense exploded with timely hits that allowed the Rockets to come away with the 7-3 win over the Bears (14-7).

  • Collins fishing headed to state

    Just one season into the Collins High School bass fishing program, and the team is already making waves.

    Anglers Ian Nation and Jack Swindler earned a 13th-place finish at last weekend’s Region 2 meet, and are headed to Kentucky Lake to take part in the KHSAA State Fishing Competition on May 12-13.

    “I’m very excited that we were able to place a team,” Titans coach Sara Fitzpatrick said. “Both [Nation and Swindler] are young, and our program looks strong for the future.”

  • Collins bats come alive versus...

    With a more aggressive mindset at the plate, the Collins baseball team racked up 16 hits and took advantage of four Shelby County errors en route to a 13-0 win on Tuesday night.

    Following the close 2-1 win over the Rockets (10-12-1, 1-3 district) the night before, Titans head coach Mike Hammond stressed getting more quality at-bats to his team heading into night two of the series.

  • Stone primed to repeat in state...

    This season has been a different one for Shelby County’s Kyrien Stone, but going from a raw athlete to a defending state champion in two different track and field events will make that happen.

    Stone recently showed his prowess in the triple and long jump events at last weekend’s Eastern Relays, also known as the biggest regular season meet in the state.

    The senior took first in the triple jump event at the University of Louisville on April 22 with a distance of 45-feet, 9-inches, nearly a foot better than the second-place finisher.

  • North Oldham scores late to top...

    While both Shelby County and North Oldham were struggling to put up timely hits amid fantastic pitching performances, it was the Mustangs that came through late for the victory.

    North Oldham (10-6) eventually broke the scoreless tie in the top of the sixth, opening up a 2-0 lead with back-to-back RBIs on a double and a triple.

    Shelby (6-10-1) could never quite find its footing in the batter’s box, logging just two hits all game until NOHS ultimately walked away with the close shutout win.

  • Goodlett guides Collins past...

    Both Collins and Shelby County’s baseball teams were searching for some sort of advantage in Monday’s 30th District matchup.

    The two squads spent the first five innings locked in a scoreless tie, until Titans shortstop Drew Goodlett stepped to the plate with runners on second and third and gave Collins that advantage.

  • Collins picks up walk off win...

    When Collins softball needed two runs to overcome a 5-4 deficit in the bottom of the seventh inning, third baseman Allyson Long was happy to oblige.

    Long drove in two runners on a single to seal the walk-off and the second district win of the season for the Titans, 6-5.

    “What I liked is that our girls did not give up,” Collins coach Charlie LeCompte said after the win. “They kept poking away, poking away. We had several girls with big hits and we ran the bases well. I like my team, I’m pleased.”

  • Shelby outlasts North Bullitt

    While Shelby County softball was set to play multiple games at the Capital City Showcase over the weekend, the Rockets only contest ended with a 7-4 win over North Bullitt.

    SCHS (6-6-1) was powered at the plate by second baseman Loran Trent, who collected three hits and two RBIs in four plate appearances Friday.

    Trent was also a part of a late rally that allowed the Rockets to power past the Eagles (3-12).

  • Collins scores late to top CAL

    With both teams tied at two runs apiece, Collins baseball’s Thursday contest against Christian Academy-Louisville turned on a late mistake by the Centurions.

    Catcher Zane Baker crossed home plate on a wild pitch by CAL thrower Luke Price that proved to be the winning run for the Titans (14-10).

    The game showed the base running prowess of Collins, as the Titans scored all three of its runs on wild pitches or stolen bases.
