  • GIRLS’ LACROSSE: Titans win own...

    The Collins girls’ lacrosse team won its first-ever invitational Saturday.
    The host Titans defeated Atherton, Woodford County and Elizabethtown in round-robin play, then defeated the Yellow Jackets in the “Titan Challenge” – a round of 4-on-4 play – to win the tournament of the same name.
    “Our first trophy win for the school!” Coach David Boone said.

  • Titans hammer Spencer

    The Collins softball team ended last week with three victories in four games.
    The Titans topped visiting Spencer County 17-6 in six innings in a 30th District game Thursday before going 2-1 in the Vernon Bibb Memorial Classic at Fern Creek. Franklin County clipped Collins 6-5 Friday night at Fern Creek before the Titans topped the host Tigers, 7-5, and Sacred Heart Academy, 10-7, Saturday.

  • Panthers' win ends Titans...

  • Rockets slip past Bearcats on...

    An unlikely ending to Thursday’s Anderson-Shelby baseball game left even loquacious Rockets Coach Bart “Rudy” Roettger speechless. Almost.

    Down to its last strike, Shelby County tallied two runs in the bottom of the seventh inning to beat the Bearcats 4-3 in a key 30th District game at the Shelby County Athletic Complex.

    “Wow! I have no words to explain that one,” said Roettger, who did offer some moments later.

  • Rocket boys avenge earlier loss

    Little translation has been necessary on the tennis court this spring for Luke Dove and Michael Chen.

    The sport has been the perfect interpreter for the Shelby County juniors. And Dove and Chen, an exchange student from Taiwan, remained perfect in their partnership on the court with a straight sets triumph at No. 1 doubles to help the Rockets avenge an earlier loss to crosstown-rival Collins with a 4-1 triumph Friday at Clear Creek Park.

  • BOYS’ TENNIS: SCHS, CHS win...

    Against the Bears all of the Rockets’ victories came in straight sets, except at No. 1 singles, where junior Jimmy Welman won 6-3, 5-7, 1-0 (10-8). At No. 2 singles junior Andrew Clark triumphed 6-1, 6-0, while sophomore Gerardo Hernandez was victorious 6-0, 6-2 at No. 3 singles.

  • Titans hold off pesky Bulldogs

    The Collins baseball team won its seventh straight game, edging visiting Fairdale 3-2 Wednesday.

    The Titans (16-2), who are No. 14 in the state coaches poll and No. 15 in the Kentucky Prep Top 25, got a solid start from senior Mason Jeffries and made the most of their five hits to beat the Bulldogs.

    Fairdale (7-11), which came in riding a 4-game win streak, struck first, scoring one run in the top of the fourth frame.

    Collins countered, though, with three runs in the bottom of the inning

    The Shelby County baseball team picked up a pair of 8th Region victories at home this week.
