  • Defending champs return...

    The Shelbyville Post 37 American Legion team will break in its third head coach in as many seasons under Matt Buresh this summer.

    But it’s nothing new for Buresh, who has spent several years working with the team and helped out long time former skipper Jim Wiley.

    But despite having a new head coach, the team returns an immense amount of talent from last season’s state championship squad. Seven returning players, along with some fresh new faces, will help Buresh hit the ground running this summer.

    You never want to see a team as talented as Collins softball was this year have its season ended, but the Titans players have plenty of reasons to be proud, and reasons for fans to be hopeful for the future.

    While the team’s final score against East Carter may have seemed like a one-sided affair, it was much closer than the final tally would have you believe.

    The Collins High School softball team drew about as tall a task as possible to open the KHSAA State Softball Tournament on Thursday, but head coach Charlie LeCompte remained upbeat and positive as the Titans headed to Owensboro on Wednesday.

  • Former Collins players help lead...

    Just a few years removed from helping lead Collins softball to 20-plus win seasons, former Titans Shelbi Poehlein, Janette Hynes, and Janelle Hynes are replicating that success as student-athletes at Transylvania University.

    Poehlein, a sophomore, and the Hynes twins, both freshmen, helped anchor a Transy softball team that enjoyed the most success in team history, ending the season ranked No. 14 in Division III by the National Fastpitch Coaches Association Poll, a marked improvement for a team that was unranked throughout much of the regular season.

    The All-Region softball team from the 8th Region was named Monday, and two athletes from each of Shelby County and Collins high schools were awarded the honor.

    Collins’ pitcher Paige Oldham and outfielder Hallie Renfro were each voted in by coaches from around the 8th Region for the honor.

    Oldham and Renfro recently helped lead the Titans to its first region championship and state tournament appearance in program history en route to being named for the award.

  • Collins earns trip to region...

    Collins’ Tuesday night matchup with Simon Kenton may not have kicked off in the most exciting fashion, but it ended with fireworks at the plate.

    Holding a 5-1 lead after five innings of action, the Titans rolled up four additional runs in the bottom of the sixth to help stave off the Pioneers and give Paige Oldham some breathing room on the mound.

    Collins’ starting pitcher made the most of her opportunity in the 8th Region semis, striking out nine batters and holding SK to just four hits as a team.
