  • Collins’ Gramig signs to play at...

    The first time University of Cumberlands softball coach Angie Dean met Kristina Gramig on a recruiting trip, she said she was impressed.

    But the player Dean was recruiting at that time wasn't Gramig, it was her older sister, Shauna.

    "Kristina comes down and sits by me in the bleachers and starts talking," Dean recalled. "We talked like we'd known each other forever. At that moment I said, that's a great kid from a great family.

  • Basketball coach Turley leaves...

    "He's had an opportunity he felt like he couldn't turn down," Collins Principal Anthony Hatchell said Monday afternoon.

    "It's not high school [coaching]," Turley added, although he didn't get any more specific, when reached Monday afternoon.

  • His life is a lot to Crowe about

    If you don't know Crowe, you don't know athletics in this county.

    Or its unofficial mayor.

    Crowe, for the likely few of you who may not know, is Austin Crowe.

    This 19-year-old, who graduated with honors from Collins this past Saturday night, has reached one-name status through his managing of athletic teams at Shelby County and Collins high schools, his tireless work ethic, his infectious smile and personality and for just being an all-around good guy.

  • COOK: On tap: All-Star preview,...

    You can get a sneak peak of the Kentucky All-Star boys’ basketball team Monday night at Anderson County High School.
    The Kentucky All-Stars, who are guided by Bearcats Coach Glen Drury, will scrimmage the state’s junior all-stars at 6:30 p.m. at the school in Lawrenceburg. That will be a warm-up for next weekend, when the Kentucky All-Stars will take on their Indiana counterparts June 10 at Bellarmine University’s Knights Hall in Louisville and the next night at Conseco Fieldhouse in Indianapolis.

  • Athlete of the week: He was No....

    Tyler Tipton wore the No. 1 for Collins’ baseball team this season.
    And it could have stood for the one thing Collins Coach Roy Bailey knew he’d always get from the senior shortstop.
    “Tyler came to play every day,” Bailey said. “He has been a consistent, all-state- caliber player for us all year at shortstop.”

  • Regional semis: Titans rally to...

    INDEPENDENCE – Sydney Cloyd’s second chance gave the Collins softball team its first chance at an 8th Region title.
    With two outs in the top of the sixth inning and the Titans trailing Grant County, 4-1, Tuesday night in the 8th Region semifinal, Cloyd, a freshman designated hitter, popped a foul ball near the screen just to the right of home plate.
    Braves first baseman Kayla Cummins and catcher Sierra Sydnor converged, and Cummins corralled the ball, after bobbling it a couple times, while up against the screen.

  • Regional final: Collins falls...

    INDEPENDENCE – Collins' final comeback came up slightly short in the 8th Region final Thursday night.

    The Titans, who had rallied in their final at-bats to win their first two games of the regional tournament, couldn't recapture that magic in the championship game against Walton-Verona.

    Collins fought back from a 3-0 deficit early in the game to tie the score in the fourth inning. However, Jenalee Ginn's 2-out RBI-double to left-center field in the bottom of the fifth inning gave the Bearcats a 4-3 victory at Simon Kenton.
