  • Young Titans growing on diamond...

    The Collins softball team will look to compete with a number of new faces on the varsity roster this season.

    10 of the Titans’ 16 players will be sophomores or younger, but despite the relative youthfulness of the unit, Collins returns two pitchers that will anchor the team on the mound this year in junior Paige Oldham and sophomore Carson Murray.

    According to the Titans’ head coach, the team will boast a good amount of experience in its roster.

  • Turner paces Titans past No. 13...

    Don’t call it an upset.

    Talking to senior forward Dominique Turner and head coach Chris Gaither following Collins’ 62-59 defeat of Oldham County, both the player and coach echoed the same sentiment: This team simply did not want its season to end on Wednesday in the 8th Region Tournament at Henry County High School.

    “I had to do it [take control of the game],” Turner said afterwards. “I want to make it back to Rupp [Arena in Lexington, the site of the Sweet 16].”

  • Ellis leads Shelby from behind...

    This season, the Shelby County baseball team is looking to capture its first 30th district title since 2010. In order to accomplish that goal, the Rockets will need its combination of youth and experienced players to meld together throughout the season.

    Junior catcher Matthew Ellis will be a large part of the team’s success after hitting .345 last season for SCHS with 18 RBIs as a sophomore.

  • Collins looks to senior...

    While the Collins’ High School baseball team is experienced coming into the 2017 season, it will need some leadership to emerge on the mound.

    With the graduation of Will McDonald, Austin Jennings, and Bryson Dillow at the end of last season, the Titans lost most of its production from its pitching staff. The team returns two of its starting hurlers from last season, and both should play bigger roles this year.

  • Anderson outlasts Collins for...

    The final 2:54 of Friday night’s 30th District boys’ title game proved to be crucial in deciding a champion.

    Over the final 174 seconds of regulation, Anderson County outscored Collins 11-3 and locked up its second consecutive district championship with a 53-44 win over the Titans (20-12).

    The Bearcats (19-11) relied heavily on guard Cobe Penny late, as the junior knocked down three of his four free throw attempts to help put the game out of reach of Collins.

  • Karas inks with Virginia

    One of the top athletes in the state of Kentucky has officially signed with the University of Virginia.

    Collins senior Gabriella Karas penned her letter of intent to compete for UVA on Thursday afternoon, surrounded by friends, family, and former coaches.

  • Collins faces Oldham in region...

    With Sunday’s draw pitting the Collins boys’ basketball team against Oldham County in the opening round of the 8th Region Tournament, the Titans are focused on pulling off the upset of the Colonels.

    Oldham sports the 13th-ranked team in the state according to MaxPreps, and a 26-5 overall record this season.

  • Spencer rallies to top Collins

    With five minutes remaining in regulation, it seemed as if the Collins girls’ basketball team would cruise to its second consecutive 30th District Championship game.

    The Titans (18-12) held a nine-point lead over the visiting Bears (19-11) at home, 43-34, and were having no trouble getting to the rim, or knocking down outside shots.

    But Spencer County had other ideas on the way to a 50-47 upset.

  • Collins advances to district...

    In a win-or-go-home game for both Shelby and Collins boys’ basketball teams, Titans’ senior forward Charlie Cochran once again stepped up when called upon.

    With 61 seconds left in regulation and Collins clinging to a 47-46 lead, the team needed a basket to give itself some breathing room against a red-hot Rockets’ squad.

  • Anderson rolls through Shelby

    The Shelby County girls’ basketball had its season ended, 49-26, at the hands of Anderson County on Tuesday night in the opening round of the 30th District Tournament.

    The Bearcats (23-7) used a stifling press defense throughout the entire game to trap Shelby’s ball-handlers and force numerous turnovers.

    “On the offensive end their [Anderson’s] pressure of course bothers you,” Rockets coach Jason Holland said. “But we also didn’t shoot the ball very well, and some of that is on us.”
