  • 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.

  • Titans’ hot-shooting finish nets...

    LAWRENCEBURG – About the only problem the Collins boys’ basketball team had with the basket at which it shot during the second half of Friday night’s 30th District Tournament final was cutting down its net. 

    The Titans shot 68.2 percent from the field after intermission to claim the first district title in the brief, 2-year history of the program with a 62-47 victory over host Anderson County.

    Afterward Collins senior center Brian Stone, the first Titan up the ladder, struggled to snip off a strand of the twine.

  • SCHS’ Kessinger takes 5th in 200...

    LOUISVILLE – Collin Kessinger’s times didn’t drop as drastically at the state swim meet this year as much as they did last year.

    However, her place still rose.

    Kessinger, a junior at Shelby County High School, finished in fifth place in the finals of the girls' 200-yard individual medley Saturday at the KHSAA Swimming & Diving State Championships at the University of Louisville’s Ralph Wright Natatorium.

  • Kessinger looks to better last...

    Last year’s KHSAA State Swimming & Diving meet was a bit of an awakening for Collin Kessinger.

    Kessinger, then a sophomore at Shelby County, was nervous and unsure about how she would stack up against the best in the state.

    It didn’t take long for Kessinger to prove that she belonged, though. She trimmed more than 10 seconds off her regional times during the two days, on her way to finishing in seventh-place in the 100-yard breaststroke and in ninth in the 200 individual medley, even if she didn’t always believe what she was seeing.

  • Cornerstone boys' JV wins...

    The Cornerstone Christian boys’ basketball junior varsity team captured the Kentucky Christian Athletic Association Junior Varsity Tournament, which it hosted last weekend.

    The Bulldogs beat Majesty, 40-22, in the first round, then beat Somerset, 29-26, in overtime in the semifinals before beating Wesley, 29-26, in the title game.

    Cornerstone’s Jacob Tipton was named the most valuable player of the tourney. He was joined on the all-tournament team by fellow Bulldogs Nate Oates and Christian Lopesilvero. 

  • Titans’ romp brings Rockets full...

    LAWRENCEBURG – The Shelby County girls’ basketball team had one of the best 180-degree turnarounds in the state during the regular season.

    However an outstanding defensive effort by cross-town rival-Collins ended the Rockets’ season in almost the exact same way it had started – a complete 360 – Wednesday night.

  • Second-half verse, same as the...

    LAWRENCEBURG – Collins’ second-half success against its cross-town rival continued Wednesday night.

    The Titans outscored Shelby County, 53-32, after intermission to beat the Rockets, 88-72, in the 30th District semifinals at Anderson County.

    It was Collins’ third victory over Shelby this season and its biggest, given that it moved the Titans into tonight’s district championship game against Anderson County and the 8th Region tournament next week.

  • Brotherly love inspires Troutman

    A little sibling rivalry helped Michael Troutman get back into the swimming pool.

    Troutman, a sophomore at Collins who was motivated by his older brother’s second-place finish at the state swim meet last year, jumped back into the water this fall after a more than 3-year absence.

    This weekend Troutman, who is qualified in four events, will try to rival his brother’s finish at the KHSAA State Swimming & Diving Championships at the University of Louisville’s Ralph Wright Natatorium. Preliminaries begin at 10 a.m. today and tomorrow.
