  • Titans, Rockets each place 2 on...

    Two girls from Collins and two from Shelby County have been voted to the All-8th Region softball team.
    Titans Shelbi Poehlein, a rising senior, and Lindsey Ketcham, a recent Collins graduate, and Rockets Kara Wiley, a rising senior, and Sydney Wright, a rising junior, were selected to the 15-player team that is chosen by the voting of region coaches.
    Anderson County’s Bailey Curry earned Player of the Year honors while Bearcats skipper Brent Aldridge was Coach of the Year.

  • PGA Junior League kicks off...

    The second season of the PGA Junior League of Shelbyville tees off this weekend and it looks like it will be bigger and better.

  • Karas sets 3 state records in 3...

    LEXINGTON – After winning the 1,600-meter run – the first of her three scheduled events at the Class AA KHSAA Track & Field State Championships – Collins freshman Gabby Karas coughed, bothered by allergies, as she walked across the green infield of the University of Kentucky’s Outdoor Track Complex.
    “I don’t know about this tripling stuff,” she said.

  • Burk's blast lifts Titans...

    LAWRENCEBURG – E.J. Burk hadn’t homered in the first 91 at-bats of this baseball season, or any of his previous high school plate appearances for that matter, until Tuesday night.

    The junior’s 3-run home run in the bottom of the sixth inning broke a 3-all tie and propelled Collins to a 7-3 victory over host Anderson County in the 30th District Tournament final.  Burk’s blast over the centerfield fence, off Josh Brown, lifted the Titans to their second straight district title.

  • A miracle put on ice

    NEW CASTLE – The Shelby County boys’ basketball team nearly pulled off a miracle comeback Friday night.

    The Rockets’ rally ultimately fell short, though, as Simon Kenton outlasted them, 76-69, in the first round of the 8th Region Tournament at Henry County.

    Shelby County trailed by 20 points with 3 minutes, 43 seconds to play before staging a colossal comeback, closing to within one with 46 seconds left.

    The Pioneers, however, scored the final six points of the game.

  • A gift that means life

    When University of Kentucky men’s basketball coach John Calipari speaks, Big Blue Nation listens.

    But more than his rants and ruminations on Nerlens Noel, Kyle Wiltjer, Archie Goodwin and Alex Poythress, there is one thing in particular that I hope BBN is hearing and paying attention to these days, it’s Cal’s radio commercial about organ donation.

  • 10 questions for Chris Shuck

    Collins senior Chris Shuck was a standout on the boys’ soccer team this past season and for the past couple of years.

  • Stone coming into his own

    A new basketball season has brought about a new and improved Ralphie Stone for the Collins boys’ basketball team.

    Stone, a 6-foot-3 senior forward, is a big reason why the Titans are off to the best start in their brief history – 11-2 heading into tonight’s 30th District showdown against Anderson County – after losing three starters, including the 8th Region Player of the Year, Dez Marshall, from last season’s squad.

  • Collins football team wins its...

    BOWLING GREEN – As the final horn sounded the Collins High School football team shrugged off the freezing temperatures Saturday night for a madcap celebration of their 37-34 victory over venerable Fort Thomas Highlands that delivered the school’s first KHSAA Class AAAA State Football Championship.

    But just a few seconds before that, this entire celebratory scene hung precariously as the football gods seemingly had turned their backs on these scrappy underdogs from Shelbyville, the game seeming to unravel on one call by the officials.

  • Karas breaks record to win 3rd...

    LEXINGTON – Three down, three to go for Gabby Karas.

    Karas, a freshman at Collins High School, won her third consecutive Class AA state cross-country title Saturday at the Kentucky Horse Park in Lexington.

    And once again Karas, whose goal is to capture three more state championships in her final three years of high school, did it in record fashion, breaking her own course record by crossing the finish line in 17 minutes, 39.04 seconds.
