  • Petty earns medal at state meet

    While defending state champion Gabby Karas of Collins sat out the AA girls’ state cross country meet Saturday with an injury, there were still plenty of positives for both Collins and Shelby County.

    Karas, the three-time defending state champ and state record holder for the event, ran in the regional meet the week before but shin splits that have plagued her all season forced her to the sideline again.

  • Anderson rolls over short handed...

    Finding someone predicting a running-clock blowout when Anderson County hosted Collins Friday night would have been as likely as Elvis showing up in Lawrenceburg.

    Both teams were limping to the end of the regular season with numerous injuries, 4-5 records and three seeds in the playoffs.

    But ladies and gentlemen, Elvis was in the stadium.

    Well, sort of.

  • Karas returns for Collins girls...

    North Oldham won the girls’ Region 3 cross country title but the big news was the return of Collins’ Gabby Karas to competition.

    Karas, the three-time defending state champion, has been sidelined this season by illness and shin splits but she returned Saturday to help the Titans to a second place team finish and spot in Saturday’s state meet.

    Along with North Oldham and Collins, the Shelby County team also qualified for the state meet.

  • Shelby boys take second in region

    It couldn’t get much closer between the North Oldham and Shelby County boys’ cross country teams.

    With both placing their top five runners in the top 15, defending state champion North Oldham edged Shelby County 31-33 Saturday in the regional meet.

    “We’re right there, it’s such a close call,” Shelby County junior David Jacobs said. “I think it’s going to stay that way at the state meet, too. With us and North Oldham, and with Highlands, it will come down to who runs the best that day.”

  • Shelby County beats South to...

    For two teams who clinched their respective districts the week before, Shelby County and South Oldham brought a little bit of everything to the field Friday as the Rockets pulled out a 28-21 win over the Dragons.

    “Oh my gosh, we both had our share of ups and downs in this one,” Shelby County coach Todd Shipley said. “At one point I thought we had things going our way, but give South Oldham credit, they came right back at us. That’s a very good football team we were able to beat tonight.”

  • Caspian Tern is a frequent...

    The Caspian Tern is a fairly common migratory bird through Kentucky except during the summer when it is rare. However June sightings in the Ohio River and the lake areas of western Kentucky seems to indicate that this species occasionally remains throughout the summer. Early spring sightings are March 30 and late autumn is Nov. 19.

  • Titans close with Anderson

    The Collins Titans will see a lot of different looks but something very familiar Friday when they go to Anderson County to close the regular season.

    Collins will see an Anderson team with an identical 4-5 record and one that has battled through injuries all season long just like the Titans.

    “When you look at us, we have been through a lot of the same things,” Collins coach Jerry Lucas said. “I think both of us are coming into this game wanting to play well as we go into the playoffs next week.”

  • Shelby closes year with South...

    If the Shelby County Rockets look in the mirror this week they just might see South Oldham starting back at them.

    The Rockets, (8-1), fresh off winning the district championship with a dominating win over Collins last week will take on a South Oldham team on the road tonight that is also 8-1 and coming off a win over North Bullitt that gave them a 5A district title.

  • Collins falls to Oldham in...

    The Collins High School volleyball team is closer to moving into the region’s elite class but saw the work the program needs to do as the Titans fell to Oldham County 25-15, 25-21 and 25-13 in the opening round of the Eighth Region tournament at North Oldham Tuesday.

  • Young earns Player of Year honors

    It was an up-and-down season for Shelby County junior golfer Lilly Young, but it has ended on an upswing for Young as she has been named the Region V Player of the Year by the state’s golf coaches.

    “I was really surprised by this, I found out at lunch today,” Young said. “I had no idea this was going to happen. It’s really nice.”
