  • Defense powers Titans in romps

    The Oldham County Christmas Tournament was very merry for the Collins girls’ basketball team.

    The Titans went 3-0 in the round robin in Buckner. They capped it off by beating the host Colonels, 59-31, last Thursday night and Bethlehem, 59-24, last Friday.

    “I’m very proud of them,” said Collins Coach Phillip Conder, whose team was 11-2 and had won eight of its last nine games heading into Tuesday’s night game against 8th Region rival South Oldham. 

     

  • Titans claim 5th in a row

    The Collins boys’ basketball team capped off 2011 with its fifth consecutive victory – its longest winning streak of the calendar year.

    The Titans topped 30th District rival Spencer County, 76-63, in their final game in the Nelson County Classic.

    “It was a good game. I thought we played hard, but I didn’t think we played as well as we had the previous two games,” said Collins Coach Chris Gaither, whose team beat Elizabethtown last Tuesday and Nelson County last Wednesday in its first two games of the round-robin.

  • Your dream is my nightmare

    Those of you who consider what happened on Saturday to be a dream game are, well, dreaming.
    You know who you are, wearing either red or blue and yelling like a banshee at that basketball cum football game you watched.
    Yes, Kentucky vs. Louisville – to let winners go first – was for decades a dream for fans of both schools, but except for the winning part, Saturday was something more akin to a nightmare for those who most wanted to see it played.
    To put it simply, sports fans, this was pure ugly.
