    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.”

  • Titans boys' tennis team...

    The Collins boys’ tennis team dismantled Anderson County 4-1, losing only two games in the process.

    BUCKNER – Shelby County gave itself a chance in the final inning, but an explosive fourth inning was all Oldham County needed to edge the Rockets 5-3 in regional play Wednesday.

    Shelby County held a 3-1 lead after scoring in each inning leading up to the fourth. That’s when Oldham County’s Haley Springer blasted a two-run home run over the center field wall to tie the game, then the Colonels pushed across two more runs on an error and a RBI double for the 5-3 lead.

    Pitching and timely hitting carried the Rockets to a 5-4 win at Jeffersontown (2-2) Friday.

    “Pitching was the storyline on Friday,” SCHS coach Devin Hicks said. “Our guys did a great job. They threw a lot of strikes and got ahead in the county, just an all around good job.”

    Senior Spencer Shouse came in for the save in the seventh inning and after striking out the first batter, he hit the second batter, putting the tying run on first.

  • High school softball preview:...

    After posting a 20-16 record last year, the Shelby County Rockets enter 2016 with high expectation and the talent to back it up.

    “I think we finally have more than one senior, and I’ve had these five girls [Victoria McGuire, Sydney Wright, Abby Willis, Savannah Smeaton and Jesse Vermillion] for seven years now. And a couple of them have been playing varsity since they were in seventh grade,” Shelby coach Kelly Cable said. “I think we have the core and leadership with this group to have a really good season.”

  • High school softball preview:...

    The Collins High School softball team got a taste of the region success last year, and now they want back.

    After leading 1-0 going into the 5th inning of the 8th Region championship against Anderson County, the Titans ended up falling and that left a bad taste in the team’s mouth.

    “We were two innings away from our goal,” said Collins coach Charlie LeCompte. “That’s the goal every year, win the district, win the region and get into the state tournament.”
