  • Dennison’s heroics power Titans...

    Josh Dennison's RBI-single in the bottom of the seventh inning capped Collins' comeback as the Titans won their fourth consecutive game, beating Scott County, 5-4, this past Thursday night at Whitaker Bank Ballpark, the home of the Lexington Legends.

    “It was a great high school baseball game,” Collins Coach Roy Bailey said. “We had to use every aspect of the game to pull out the win. It was definitely a complete team effort. We had effective pitching, successful sacrifice bunting, steals, solid defense and timely hits.”

  • Rockets rout Warriors, let...

    The Shelby County baseball team had one big inning in each of its past two games.

    One foe didn’t have an answer, but the other did as the Rockets beat Eminence but lost at Danville.

    The Rockets (10-4, 1-1) erupted for a 12-run second inning on their way to a 5-inning, 30th District victory over the visiting Warriors (1-8, 0-4) this past Thursday.

    Shelby County rapped out eight hits – including four doubles – and stole eight bases while also being helped by six Eminence errors.

  • Titans’ boys rally, girls roll...

    First set to Collins.

    The Collins boys edged their Rocket counterparts, 3-2, while the Titans’ girls’ team dispatched Shelby County, 4-1.

    The schools will next do battle at 4:30 p.m. Monday.

    Collins slams Dragonswith 4 home runs

    The Collins baseball team’s bats broke out in a big way Tuesday night.

    The Titans pounded out 14 hits, including four home runs, as they slammed host South Oldham 12-1 in five innings.

    "The bats came alive," said Collins Coach Roy Bailey, whose team entered that game with a .289 batting average and no homers on the young season. "Our entire lineup swung the bats very aggressively. It seemed like when the first guys started hitting it became contagious."

  • Athlete of the Week: Ariel Lane

    Diminutive Ariel Lane stands tall on the campus at Cornerstone Christian Academy.

    The 5-foot senior was a standout on the court this past fall for the Bulldogs’ volleyball team and also excels in the classroom as well as the hallways.

  • Titans fall in perfect game

    The Collins softball team nearly played a perfect game against the then-second-ranked team in the state Tuesday evening.

    The only problem was that Mercy Academy pitcher JJ Francis did play a perfect game, striking out 16, as the host Jaguars topped the Titans 1-0.

    "I'm proud of them," Collins coach Jim Axline said. "If we would've hit like we can hit the ball we would have beat them."

  • SCHS rallies to top CAL in extra...

    To Shelby County softball coach Kelly Cable the Rockets’ third victory of the season Tuesday night truly was a team effort.

    "I played every single person," she said. "And whether it was pinch-hitting or pinch-running, everybody stepped up. It was a full team effort.”

    And as it turned out Shelby County needed every last contribution in beating host Christian Academy of Louisville 9-7 in 10 innings.

  • Titans boys take first meet...

    The Collins boys' track & field team notched the program's first meet victory Tuesday, fittingly on its home turf.

    The Titans tallied 115 points, to outscore nine other teams.

    "It's been exciting for us to host meets at our new stadium,” said Collins Coach Jerry Lucas, whose team hosted an all-comers meet for the second straight week. “We are also excited about the progress of our kids as the season has gone on this year, and we think we will continue to improve throughout the remainder of the month and into May."

  • EARLIER: Jockey Jon Court of...

    Jon Court has fielded questions from some of the biggest names in horse racing. He's been asked how he won and how he lost, but he's probably never taken questions like he did on Thursday.

    "Have you won a lot of trophies?"

    "How many races have you won?"

    "How tall is your horse?"

    "How much does your horse weigh?"

    "Have you ever fallen off your horse?"

    "What's your favorite kind of horse?"

  • Titans rain on John Hardin’s...

    The Collins baseball team beat John Hardin and its biggest foe this season – the weather – Monday night.

    The Titans scored a pair of runs in the first and fourth innings on their way to a 4-2 victory over the visiting Bulldogs, then hustled to get the tarp over their infield before light rains moved into the area.

    In the game Collins (6-2), which has seen nine games rained out this season, used a formula similar to its other victories this season – pitching and defense.
