  • 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.

  • Cornerstone’s Tara Watkins named...

    Cornerstone Christian senior Tara Watkins has been named Ms. Volleyball by the Kentucky Christian Athletic Association.

    She is the first player from Cornerstone to win the award, which began in 2003.

    Watkins highlighted the 10-player All-State team, which also included her teammate, and classmate, Hannah Lee.

  • These sophs aren’t soft

    Some of the sophomore football players at Collins High School have taken to calling themselves the “sophomore sensation.”

    It’s hard to argue with them at this point.

    The sophomore class has been nothing short of super so far this season for the Titans, who host Spencer County at 7:30 tonight in the second round of the Class 4A state playoffs at Shelby County’s Robert Doyle Stadium.  

  • Sharks set many marks in meet

    The Shelby Sharks swim team hosted the Lakeside Seahawks and Triton Swimming, 240 swimmers in all, at its Harvest Classic this past weekend at the Family Athletic Center at Clear Creek Park.

    “We had one of the best home meets ever!” Sharks Coach Jeremiah Heat said. “Our goal this weekend was simply to give our best and to perform with the skills we have learned in practice. We have done that and more.”

  • Karas sisters ready to run

    Earlier this season, Collins cross country coach Stephen Drawbaugh said that seventh-grader Gabby Karas told her older sister, senior Caterina, that if it came down to the end of the race and the two were neck-and-neck, she’d let her win the Class 2A KHSAA State Cross Country Championships.

    That very well could be the case Saturday at the Kentucky Horse Park in Lexington, although we’ll have to find out about that finish.
