  • Titans top Rockets 8-2 in...

    The Collins softball team picked up where it left off Wednesday night.

    The Titans topped crosstown-rival Shelby County 8-2 Thursday night in a 30th District Tournament semifinal that began Wednesday night, but was halted by lightning, then thunderstorms. The rain wreaked havoc with Collins' field, forcing Thursday night's first pitch to be more than an hour and a half later than expected.

    The game resumed at the start of the bottom of the second with the second-seeded Titans leading the third-seeded Rockets 1-0.

    Ryan Martin is two shots behind in second while Shelbyville resident, and former NGA Player of the Year, Brandon Brown is in a three-way tie for third-place with Matthew Atkins and Pete Skirpstas, who shot a 7-under 63 Saturday.

    Brown shot a 3-under 67 Saturday on his home course.

    It’s been a happy homecoming for Derrick Bohannon so far this week.

    The Shelbyville native is back in town for business, and pleasure. His work? Playing professional golf.

  • Collins, Shelby meet for shot at...

    Fifteen days after the Collins softball team edged Shelby County 6-5 on Sydney Cloyd’s two-run home run, the crosstown rivals meet again tonight, this time with a little more on the line – their seasons.

    The host, and second-seeded, Titans (17-18, 2-1) take on the No. 3 seeded Rockets (12-17, 1-2) at 7:30 in the second 30th District Tournament semifinal. Collins has won the first five meeting by an average of nearly eight runs per game, but the Rockets had the Titans on the ropes May 6 before Cloyd’s homer in the bottom of the sixth.

  • SOFTBALL: CHS wins 2; SCHS 1-1

    The Titans topped the host Crimsons 9-8 in the morning, and then outlasted LaRue County 14-7 in the afternoon for their eighth victory in their last nine games.

    Against Manual, Collins rallied for five runs in the sixth, and final, frame.

  • Bearcats knock out Rockets

    LAWRENCEBURG – The Shelby County baseball team beat Anderson County 4-3 on April 24 with an ending that left Rockets Coach Bart “Rudy” Roettger flabbergasted.

    Roettger was overcome again Monday night, but this time for a different reason.

    The Bearcats avenged that earlier loss with a 10-6 triumph over Shelby County in the 30th District Tournament semifinals at Anderson.

    “That’s one of the hardest losses I’ve ever had,” Roettger said.

  • Miller mows down Bears

    LAWRENCEBURG – Paul Miller methodically mowed down Spencer County, and Zac Wiley delivered the knockout blow for the Collins baseball team Monday night.

    Miller, a senior right-hander, tossed a two-hit, complete-game shutout and struck out a school-record 16 batters while Wiley, a fellow senior, hit a grand slam in the bottom of the sixth inning to propel the Titans to a 5-0 win over the Bears in the 30th District Tournament semifinals at Anderson County.

  • Blue-headed Vireo protects the...

    The bold white spectacles are striking on a gray-blue head, which contrasts with an olive back and bold wing-bars, while underparts are a clean white, with pale greenish-yellow flanks.

    This describes the 5-and-a-half inch long with a 9-and-a-half inch wide wingspan Blue-headed Vireo that was formerly known as the Solitary Vireo.

  • Wiley shuts down Eagles

    Behind another solid start from senior Zac Wiley, the Collins baseball team knocked off North Bullitt, 5-0, Tuesday in Hebron Estates.

    Both teams entered the game riding eight-game win streaks, but Wiley’s two-hit complete-game shutout propelled the Titans (25-3), who are No. 4 in the Kentucky Prep Report Top 25 and No. 5 in the state coaches poll, to their ninth consecutive win. The Bellarmine University-signee walked one and struck out nine as he outdueled Eagles ace Josh Exton in improving to 8-2 on the season and lowering his earned-run average to 1.28.
