  • Rockets snap Anderson's...

    After six long years of frustration, and sometimes heartbreaking losses, the Shelby County girls’ basketball team Friday broke Anderson County’s hold on the 30thDistrict championship with a 48-38 win.

    “It’s definitely been a long time coming and it feels great now that we have won it,” Shelby County senior guard Jordan Holt said. “It makes you feel like all the work we put in, in practice, all the work we did in the summer has paid off.”

  • Rarely seen Painted Bunting is a...

    The Painted Bunting is certainly one of the most beautiful birds in North America.

    The adult male is blue, green and red, however lighting and foliage can obscure the bright colors and patterns as it has in my photograph. It also appears that the male carries this beautiful plumage, all year long.

    The adult female is a bright green, which also sets her apart. This bird is 5-and-a-half inches long and has an 8-and-three-quarters inch wingspan.

  • Collins headed to state swim meet

    A quartet of Collins High School seniors will compete in individual events and four relay teams from the school will compete in the Kentucky State High School Swim Meet at the University of Louisville Aquatics Center today and tomorrow.

    Swimmers will compete in two sessions at 10 a.m. and 6 p.m. today and Saturday.

  • Shelby hoping to take title back

    Will recent history hold or can the Shelby County High School girls’ basketball team break Anderson County’s stranglehold on the 30th District basketball title at Spencer County tonight?

    Anderson has dominated the district and the region the past four seasons, but they aren’t the same squad that advanced in the Sweet 16 the past few years.

    The Bearcats split with Shelby County this season, and advanced to the finals with a hard fought win over an upset-minded Collins team while top-seeded Shelby cruised in a win over Spencer County.

  • Anderson comes back to beat...

    A key two-minute turnaround for Anderson County left the Collins High School girls’ basketball team without an answer Tuesday as Anderson took a 58-44 win in the opening round of the 30th District Tournament at Spencer County High School.

    An upset-minded Collins team led through much of the game before Anderson County’s Kaci Curren sparked the Bearcats to their first lead of the game with just over three minutes left in the third quarter.

  • Kidwell keys win over Spencer

    The Collins High School boys’ basketball team prides themselves on their balance, but senior guard Brent Kidwell tipped the scales in the Titans’ favor Wednesday sparking a second half comeback as Collins beat Spencer County 48-43 in the first round of the 30th district tourney.

    Kidwell led Collins with xx points including scoring seven straight points during one run to allow the Titans to avoid the upset.

  • REGION ROUNDUP: Simon Kenton...


    While the Shelby County girls basketball team became one of the first teams in the 8th Region to earn a berth in next week’s regional tournament at Carroll County, other teams around the region are advancing.

    Simon Kenton, considered the regional favorite with Shelby County, earned a berth in the regional with a 58-43 win over Grant County in a 32nd District opener.

  • Collins plays well at the right...

    The Collins Titans did things at just the right time to get a 70-56 win over Christian Academy of Louisville Thursday on senior night.

    Coming off nearly five days with no practice or games, the Titans closed the first half with a solid spurt on defense and found the hot-hand of senior guard Deion Cochran for an 8-0 run to take a 35-23 halftime lead they would never relinquish.

  • Collins’ balance leads to easy...

    The Collins High School girls’ basketball team sent its seniors out with a bang Thursday as the Titans rolled to a 42-18 win over Lexington Sayre.

    “We played well, it was good to get a game in and get a win,” Collins coach Phillip Conder said. “Today was all about our seniors and making sure they had a great day. Mary (Borders) and Shai’anne (Moorman) have meant so much to this team and we wanted to make sure they got a good sendoff.”

  • Cozzens leads swimmers into state

    Paul Cozzens is hoping to reach out and grab a little recognition for the Collins High School swim team.

    Cozzens, a junior, is coming off a successful regional meet where he was named the region’s Outstanding Male Swimmer after taking first in two events.

    “I’m very excited about the meet this year,” Cozzens said. “I think I have a chance to do something big this year. This will be the third year I have been in the state meet, and I have a chance to make it to the finals and score some points.
