  • Funny song keeps Blue-winged...

    The Blue-winged Warbler perches for minutes at a time when uttering its song.

    The reason could be because the song is so unusual and sounds like a loud insect-like “fuzzzz buzzzzzz” or somewhat like a deep sigh.

  • Titans face North Oldham in 8th...

    The Collins baseball team begins defense of its 8th Region title at 5:30 p.m. Monday afternoon.

    That's when the Titans (27-3) take on North Oldham (14-14) in the region tournament's final quarterfinal at Henry County High School.

    Collins and the Mustangs split a pair of regular-season meetings. North Oldham run-ruled the Titans 12-2 in six innings March 22 in Goshen in Collins' fifth game of the season. The Titans returned the favor April 12, beating the Mustangs 7-6 in a back-and-forth game in Shelbyville.

  • Vogel inks with Centre

    Caleb Vogel was a big reason, both figuratively and literally, the Collins boys’ soccer team had one of the top defenses in the state the past two seasons.

    The 6-foot-6 defender helped the Titans yield just 31 goals in 42 matches, in which they went 32-6-4 and won back-to-back district titles. Vogel signed to continue his career at Centre College on Wednesday in the high school’s library.

  • Karas eyes triple crown, records

    Gabby Karas will run for a triple crown today.

    And her coach wouldn’t be surprised if she ran away with a state record, or two, too.

    The Collins freshman is the top seed in three events – the girls’ 800-, 1,600- and 3,200-meter runs - at the Class AA KHSAA State Track & Field Championships, which begins at 4:30 p.m. at the University of Kentucky’s Outdoor Track Complex in Lexington.

  • 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.

  • Wolfe still winning Bluegrass...

    Jared Wolfe shot a 3-under-par 67 Saturday in the third round of the NGA Tour's Bluegrass Open to maintain his lead.

    Wolfe, of Louisville, who is 10-under-par for the tourney, will take a 2-shot lead into Sunday's final round at the Shelbyville Country Club.

    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.

  • NGA, Bohannon visiting...

    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.

    Bohannon, a 2003 graduate of Shelby County High School who now lives in Florida, is one of hundreds here this week to participate in the National Golf Association Pro Tour’s Bluegrass Open presented by Lucky 8 Stables at the Shelbyville Country Club. The event is free to the public.

  • 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 Collins softball team closed out its regular season with a pair of come-from-behind victories in the DuPont Manual Round Robin on Saturday in Louisville. 

    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.
