  • Karas looks at colleges

    Now that cross-country season is finished, Collins senior Caterina Karas has more time to consider which college she may attend.

    After finishing second to her younger sister, Gabby, at last Saturday’s girls’ Class 2A State Cross Country meet at the Kentucky Horse Park in Lexington, Karas said that she’s currently looking at the universities of Kentucky and Louisville as well Centre College and Franciscan University of Steubenville (Ohio).

  • Titans, Rockets hope to hit high...

    J.P. LaVertu said he has high hopes for all four of his Collins and Shelby County swim teams.

    “My expectations are always super high,” LaVertu said. “Coming into every season I expect us to finish as high as we can at region. This team is capable of being region runner-up. We definitely have the numbers to be successful.”

  • Dugle is back, ready to go

    Last year Darian Dugle was the workhorse running back for the Collins football team.

    This season he’s been one of three studs in the Titans’ backfield stable.

    “It’s been a little different for him this year,” Collins Coach Jerry Lucas said. “Last year we had a bunch of wideouts and him as our feature back.…He has been as strong this year as he was last year, but he’s been part of our three-headed monster. We’ve had a more balanced attack this year.”

  • Titans want to hit Warriors with...

    This time around the Collins football team hopes to strike the first blow against Western.

    And maybe the second, and the third, too.

    In last year’s Class 4A Region 2 title game, the Warriors threw the first punch – running the opening kickoff back – and the second, and the third, on their way to a 21-0 lead on the Titans. Collins tried in vain to come back, but the Titans’ rally fell slightly short, 31-26.  

  • Titans turn the Page(s) to beat...

    In some ways the Collins football team took a Page out of last year’s playbook on Friday night.

    Quite literally in fact.

    The Titans, who have relied on the run much of this season, opened up their passing game a little more in their 33-14 victory over Spencer County in the second round of the Class 4A state playoffs at Shelby County’s Robert Doyle Stadium.

    Sophomore quarterback Lawson Page set season highs for completions (15) and passing yards (211) in Collins’ eighth consecutive victory.

  • Sharpshooter Davis hits primary...

    Connor Davis has always had his sights set on the University of Kentucky.

    Monday this Shelby County senior officially has cast his lot with the Wildcats.

    Davis signed to join the UK rifle team in the high school’s library.

    “I’ve always been a UK fan, I couldn’t see myself rooting for another school,” said Davis, wearing a black short-sleeve shirt with a blue UK logo on it. “It’s pretty cool.”

  • Fielding powers runner-up Titans

    LEXINGTON – Moments after finishing eighth in the boys’ Class 2A State Cross Country meet, Collins junior Devon Fielding walked back toward his team’s tent carrying a large Titans’ flag.

    He stopped and placed it in the ground.

    Saturday was a flag-planting day for Collins, as Fielding and his Titans teammates continued to break new ground.

  • Gabby Karas wins in Sister Act II

    LEXINGTON – One Karas began what could be a long, historic run into Kentucky cross-country history Saturday, while the other finished her own impressive run into the state record books.

    Sisters Gabby and Caterina Karas, a seventh-grader and a senior at Collins High School, respectively, finished 1-2 in the girls’ Class 2A State Cross Country meet at the Kentucky Horse Park in Lexington. 

  • Gabby Karas wins state; Devon...

    Collins seventh-grader Gabby Karas won the Class 2A cross country state championship Saturday afternoon, beating her sister in the process.

    Karas covered the 5,000-meter course in 18 minutes, 30.31 seconds - almost 16 seconds ahead of her older sister, senior Caterina, who finished second in 18:46.20 at the Kentucky Horse Park in Lexington.

    That 1-2 finish led the Titans to third-place in the team competition.

    The Collins boys' team, meanwhile, finished second in the team race led by junior Devon Fielding, who finshed eighth overall.

  • Titans top Spencer County 33-14

    The Collins football team will get a rematch for the region title.

    The Titans topped Spencer County 33-14 Friday night in the second round of the Class 4A playoffs at Robert Doyle Stadium to earn a spot in the regional title game for the second straight season, and they'll have a familiar foe. Collins (10-2) will host Western (7-5) at 7:30 p.m. next Friday night. The Warriors, who beat North Oldham 28-19 Friday night, beat the Titans 31-26 in the Region 2 title game last year.
