  • Collins baseball beats reigning...

    The Collins baseball team won its eighth-straight game, beating defending 8th Region champion North Oldham 5-2 Tuesday in Goshen.

    The Titans (15-3) tallied one run in the third, three in the fifth and one in the sixth to beat the Mustangs (7-4), who scored two runs in the fifth.

  • A not-so-minor Miracle

    Being in front of 2,000 people laughing at you in your underwear is a nightmare for most people.

    For Eric Miracle it was just another night of work on a rainy January evening earlier this year. Miracle, a teacher at Clear Creek Elementary School, was running around Bellarmine University’s Knights Hall in heart-adorned boxer shorts during a timeout of a Knights’ men’s basketball game as part of a ZOOperstars skit.

  • International play boosts Hicks...

    MANNHEIM, Germany – Darryl Hicks did not lack confidence in his game, but he said his experience of representing the United States at the prestigious Albert Schweitzer Tournament helped him gain more faith in his abilities and taught him he still can play tougher.

    Hicks, a Shelbyville resident and junior star at Trinity High School, was named to the U.S. team for this biennial world-wide tournament in Mannheim, Germany, where the Americans slumped to a seventh-place finish last week.

  • Denouncing the announcements

    These college announcements are getting ridiculous.

    Last Wednesday night’s televised decisions of highly coveted high school boys’ basketball players Shabazz Muhammad and Nerlens Noel just reinforced that to me.

    The ESPNU production that was the commitments of Muhammad to UCLA and Noel to the University of Kentucky wasn’t quite as bad as the LeBron James’ “Decision” show on ESPN back in July of 2010, but it wasn’t far off.

  • SCHS softball falls to Gallatin...

    The Shelby County softball team fell to visiting Gallatin County 7-1 on Monday afternoon in its first game in nearly two weeks.

    The Rockets (3-9), whose previous game was a 4-2 victory over Spencer County on April 3, had as many errors (five) as hits in the loss.

    The Wildcats tallied two runs in the third inning, three in the fourth and two in the seventh.

    Shelby scored its lone run in the bottom of the third when Abby Wills reached base on a fielder’s choice, then scored on Hayley Powell’s triple.

  • Pounding victory, rousing rally...

    The Shelby County baseball team ended spring break week with a successful trip down South.
    The Rockets (10-6) won a pair of games – beating Gatlinburg-Pittman (Tenn.), 12-2, and Anderson County (Tenn.), 11-9 – and also got to meet one of their all-time greats.

    “We had a couple of goals of the Tennessee trip,” Shelby County Coach Bart “Rudy” Roettger said. “One, [we] wanted to improve team unity, two [we] wanted to play good baseball, three [we] wanted to have fun. Mission accomplished.”

  • Titans run streak to 7

    The hits, and victories, kept on coming for the Collins baseball team.

    The Titans (14-3) finished up their spring break week with triumphs over Henry County and Scott County, 8-3 and 11-1, respectively, then picked up on Monday where they left off with a 9-0 shellacking of Simon Kenton – their seventh consecutive victory.

    COLLINS 8, HENRY COUNTY 3: The Titans rallied from an early 3-0 deficit to beat the Wildcats (3-7) for the second time this season last Thursday.

  • Titans start new 'season...

    LAWRENCEBURG - The Collins softball team began its “second” season in dramatic fashion.

    The visiting Titans tallied two runs in the top of the eighth inning to beat Anderson County 4-2 Monday evening in their 30th District opener.

    Collins came in having lost four straight games – the last three over the weekend in the Capital City Showcase in Frankfort – and five of its previous six, but the Titans bounced back against the Bearcats.

  • Stone to Malone is now official

    Collins senior Brian Stone officially signed to join the men’s basketball team at Malone (Ohio) University on Wednesday, the first day of the regular signing period for NCAA Division II schools.

    Stone, a 6-foot-8 center, emerged this season for the Titans after missing some of his junior season with a leg injury. A left-handed inside player, he averaged about 14 points and 8 rebounds per game while shooting 76-percent from the field. Collins (24-11) was the 8th Region runner-up.

    Stone was joined by four others in signing with Malone.

  • Rockets hang tough on road...

    The Shelby County baseball team hung with the defending state champs but couldn’t overcome them, Tuesday night.

    The Rockets fell behind eighth-ranked Central Hardin early but stayed within striking distance throughout their 5-1 loss to the Bruins in Cecilia.

    “It was a lot closer than that,” Shelby County Coach Bart “Rudy” Roettger said.

    Central Hardin (10-4) scored single runs in the first, fourth and fifth innings, then tallied two for insurance in the sixth.
