  • Oldham no-hits Owen County in...

    Heading into Monday’s region tournament opening game against Owen County, Collins pitcher Paige Oldham had been preparing for this stage.

    After last season’s disappointing loss in the first round of the district, Oldham had put in the time and work during the offseason to prepare for this postseason.

    The pitcher showed that the hard work and long hours had paid off on Memorial Day, tossing seven innings of no-hit ball, and leading her team past Owen and to the semi-finals of the 8th Region tournament.

  • Collins rolls in region opener

    It was clear from the outset of Monday’s Memorial Day matchup that Carroll County was simply overmatched by Collins’ baseball team.

    Behind the arm of pitcher Cameron Mattingly, the Titans made quick work of the Panthers in just six innings of action, winning its 8th Region Tournament opener by a lopsided 10-0 final score.

    Mattingly tossed all six innings, allowing just three hits to Carroll while striking out seven hitters in the victory.

  • Titans rally to take district...

    In what seemed as a direct inverse of the baseball game taking place hundreds of feet away, it was the Collins softball team’s late runs that secured the 30th District title after a rocky start on Friday night.

    With Anderson leading 3-2 after three innings, Collins took advantage of a key mistake by the Bearcats that allowed the Titans to take over the game.

  • Anderson surges to district title

    Through three innings of action, it seemed as if Collins baseball had the 30th District title wrapped up on Friday night.

    Following a quick first inning by host Anderson County to take a 2-0 lead, the Titans had pieced together enough hitting and smart base running to take a 6-3 advantage through three innings.

    But the Bearcats were far from done at the plate, tying the contest at 6-6 in the bottom of the sixth inning, and eventually taking the district championship on a two-run single to set the final score at 8-6.

  • Andriot gets shot with PDL team

    While most college soccer players will be suiting up for their respective summer league teams, Shelbyville-native Walker Andriot has taken his talents to the west coast.

    As a member of the Portland Timbers 23-and-under team in the Premier Development League, Andriot is getting his shot at playing with some of the best college athletes in the country.

  • Heritage archers advance to...

    In just its first year of competition, Heritage Elementary School’s archery team has already accomplished an incredible feat – sending its archery team to the national level of competition on May 11 and now moving on to a worldwide meet held on July 21 in Orlando.

    The school vied for the National Archery In Schools Program’s national competition; finishing 165th out of 180 competing schools, which was good enough to advance to the global competition.

  • Cornerstone building towards...

    In a construction project that has been building nearly a year now, Cornerstone Christian Academy announced that Phase 1 of its plan to create a complex for the school’s various athletic programs is finished.

    The completed phase of the project was announced on May 19, with the grand opening of the facility taking place this morning, weather permitting.

    The complex is located on the 31 acres of the school grounds, where both phases are to be completed.

  • Jacobs takes state title in...

    Collins’ Nathan Jacobs has been working hard all season to perfect his discus throws, and the results of his labor showed on Friday at the KHSAA AA State Track Meet.

    Jacobs earned his first state title in the event with a final throw of 147-feet, 5-inches, edging out Johnson Central’s Josh Ervin by just two inches for the title.

  • Titans surge past Shelby

    The game may have started off shaky Monday for the Collins baseball team, but it sure didn’t end that way.

    Trailing 3-1 after two innings of play against cross-town rival Shelby County (17-17-1) in the opening round of the 30th District Tournament, the Titans (20-15) pieced together enough offense and pitching to edge out the Rockets by a 4-3.

    Collins pitcher Cameron Mattingly was a large part of the comeback effort.

  • Collins’ early rally defeats...

    While the game ran the full seven allotted innings, Collins’ softball team needed just one to advance to the 30th District Championship on Monday night.

    Three runs scored in the top of the first proved to be more than enough to top Spencer County 4-1 and knock the Bears from tournament play. The win earned the Titans a trip to tonight’s final against Anderson County, which topped Shelby County 11-1 in the tournament opener.
