  • Girls have Kregor; boys have...

    Youth will be served, and it will also be serving, for the Collins tennis teams this spring.

    The Titans lost a trio of key seniors to graduation from their inaugural boys’ and girls’ squads.

    This year both teams will be even younger – with no seniors on either squad – for their second seasons, which begin at 5 p.m. today at Oldham County.

     

    Girls have Kregor

  • Shelby County boys take 4th at...

    The outdoor track & field season hasn’t started yet, but the Shelby County boys’ team already is making noise indoors.

    The Rockets finished in fourth place in the Class AA portion of this past Saturday’s 52nd annual Mason-Dixon Games at Broadbent Arena in Louisville.

    Shelby County won two events to go along with a third-place finish, a fourth, fifth and one sixth to total 38 points. That was just 18 behind champion Central, 11 behind second-place Mercer County and 3.5 behind third-place North Oldham.

  • Stone, Titans build on perfect...

    NEW CASTLE – Another perfect shooting night from Brian Stone, a near-perfect start, a dominating performance on the backboards and a determined defensive effort carried Collins into the 8th Region boys' basketball final.

    All four were big keys in the Titans’ 56-47 victory over Gallatin County in the 8th Region semifinals Monday night at Henry County.

  • Titans can't quite get to...

    NEW CASTLE – Points in the paint had been plentiful this postseason for the Collins boys’ basketball team.
    However Oldham County put the kibosh on the Titans’ inside attack Tuesday night.
    The Colonels held Collins to only eight baskets in the lane – and a mere 12 for the game – on their way to a 50-40 victory in the 8th Region championship game at Henry County.

  • Collins plays for regional title...

    Another perfect shooting night from Brian Stone, and another dominant defensive effort, carried Collins into the 8th Region boys' basketball final.

    Stone scored 16 points (on 8 for 8 shooting), grabbed 13 rebounds and blocked six shots to lead the Titans to a 56-47 victory over Gallatin County in the 8th Region semifinals Monday night at Henry County.

  • Fine 4th quarter advances Titans

    NEW CASTLE – A rock-solid fourth quarter and Brian Stone's perfect shooting night propelled the Collins boys’ basketball team into the 8th Region Tournament semifinals.

    The Titans, who trailed South Oldham by one point entering the final period of their first round 8th Region Tournament game Wednesday night, outscored the Dragons, 21-14, during the last eight minutes – to go along with a 12-for-12 shooting performance from Stone – on their way to a 69-63 victory at the Henry County High School Gym.

  • Running star Karas to sign with...

    Collins senior runner Caterina Karas, a 3-time state champion, will sign to continue her running career with Xavier University at 4 p.m. Monday in the high school’s library.

    Karas captured the girls’ Class 2A state cross-country title in the fall of 2010, then won the 1,600- and 3,200-meter runs at last spring’s state track & field meet. She finished second to her younger sister, Gabby, at the 2011 state cross-country meet and figures to make a run at more state titles this spring.

  • Walton Verona holds off Collins...

    LAWRENCEBURG – The Collins girls’ basketball team made two comebacks against defending champ Walton-Verona in the first round of the 8th Region Tournament on Tuesday night.
    The Titans’ third try wasn’t the charm, though, as the Bearcats held them off for a 52-42 victory at Anderson County.

  • Troutman takes 8th in the 50 free

    LOUISVILLE – Michael Troutman capped off his comeback season with a medal.

    Troutman, a sophomore at Collins who returned to competitive swimming in the fall after a more than 3-year absence, finished eighth in the boys’ 50-yard freestyle final Saturday at the KHSAA Swimming & Diving State Championships at the University of Louisville’s Ralph Wright Natatorium. He also finished 14th in the 100 free.

  • Titans can’t hold big lead, fall...

    LAWRENCEBURG – Phillip Conder’s girls played more than 21 minutes of some of, if not their best, basketball of the season Friday night.

    It’s those final 10 minutes or so of the 30th District Tournament championship game, though, that he and his Titans would rather forget.

    That’s because host Anderson County outscored Collins, 26-7, during the final 10:43 to rally for 47-43 victory.
