  • 8th Region Baseball Tournament...

    After a 19-hour delay, it looked Wednesday like the Collins High School baseball team might have picked up Roy Hobbs lightning emblazoned Wonderboy bat from the movie “The Natural.”

    After lightning chased the teams from the field in the 8th Region Tournament at Henry County Tuesday, the Titans came out swinging in to the top of the sixth inning Wednesday trailing Simon Kenton 5-1.

    Senior Zach Wiley roped a shot to fence in center for a double and moved to third on Mason Jeffries’ single.

    NEW CASTLE – Zach Wiley was hitting spots with his fastball, keeping hitters off-balance with a hard slider and letting a superb defense make plays behind him.

    Wiley pitched a one-hit shutout Monday night for his Collins Titans, who beat North Oldham 4-0 in the final first round game of the Region 8 tournament at Henry County.

    Mother Nature nearly threw a knockout-punch at the Bluegrass Open Golf Tournament at the Shelbyville Country Club but thanks to volunteers, golfers and fans won the fight.

    After last week’s storms downed several dozen trees and structures, the course looked more like a war-torn ghost town littered with debris than it did a lush collection of pristine fairways and smooth greens.

    Once Anderson County got zeroed in, the numbers started coming.

    The Bearcats exploded for four runs in both the third and fourth innings on the way to an 11-1 five-inning victory over host Collins in the 30th District Tournament championship game Friday night. The game was called after the fifth inning because of the “mercy rule.”

    WARSAW – A big first inning paved the way for an Oldham County win Monday in the first round of the 8th Region Softball Tournament at Gallatin County.

    The Lady Colonels broke out of the gate with four runs and held on to beat Collins 7-4.

  • 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.
