  • Titans go cold, then go home

    NEW CASTLE – The season for Collins’ boys basketball team ended Wednesday night with a multitude of missed shots.

    The Titans dug themselves an 11-point halftime hole, thanks to some gruesome shooting, on their way to a 52-49 loss to host Henry County in the first round of the 8th Region Tournament.

    “It was an embarrassing performance on offense for sure,” Collins Coach Curtis Turley said.

  • Sharks’ swimmers headed to...

    Eight area swimmers hit the water this weekend with their sights set on sectional titles.

    The Shelby Sharks are well-represented at the Speedo Champions Series Southern Zone Eastern Section Senior Championships, which began yesterday, in Cary, N.C., with five individual qualifiers and three additional relay swimmers.

    “We are going with the largest team we have had since 2003,” Sharks Coach Jeremiah Heath said.

    NEW CASTLE – The Collins boys’ basketball team’s season ended Wednesday night with a succession of missed shots.

    The Titans dug themselves an 11-point halftime hole thanks to some forgettable shooting on their way to a 52-49 loss to host Henry County in the first round of the 8th Region Tournament.

    “It was an embarrassing performance on offense for sure,” Collins Coach Curtis Turley said.

  • Troutman just misses championship

    LOUISVILLE – This past weekend Carson Troutman narrowly missed becoming Collins’ first swimming state champion.

    He was edged out, by three-tenths of a second, in the 100-yard backstroke final at the KHSAA State Swimming & Diving meet at the University of Louisville's Ralph Wright Natatorium on Saturday.

    Troutman, who had planned all along to hang up his competitive swimming goggles after the meet, also finished fifth in the 100 freestyle.

  • Kessinger just swims and shows...

    LOUISVILLE – Collin Kessinger took her brain out of the equation this past weekend and reaped the rewards.

    Kessinger, a sophomore at Shelby County, had a pair of top-10 finishes at the KHSAA Swimming & Diving State meet, which took place Friday and Saturday at the Ralph Wright Natatorium at the University of Louisville.

    Kessinger finished seventh in the 100 breaststroke and ninth in the 200 individual medley.

  • Time runs out for the Titans

    WARSAW – Time wasn’t on the side of the Collins girls’ basketball team Monday.

    The Titans’ 8th Region Tournament first-round game against South Oldham was delayed more than an hour because the Dragons were stuck in a traffic jam on Interstate 71.

    Then, after South Oldham missed its first 14 3-point attempts, you knew it was only a matter of time before the Dragons hit one.

  • Brown, Anderson make Titans see...

    TAYLORSVILLE – Last season Collins girls basketball coach Phillip Conder employed the Hack-a-Sydney defense against Anderson County center Sydney Brown.

    Friday night that scheme didn’t work. In fact, little did.

    Brown scored a game-high 21 points to lead the Bearcats to a 57-48 victory over the Titans in the 30th District final at Spencer County. Both teams advanced to the 8th Region Tournament at Gallatin County.

    Brown hit seven field goals, all in the paint, and 7 of 11 free throws.

  • Titans’ dry 3rd quarter, free...

    TAYLORSVILLE – Collins’ boys' basketball team was in search of its first district title Saturday night – something that the players would have been remembered for generations to come.

    But it was Spencer County that celebrated its first district championship in a generation, beating Collins, 55-49, in the 30th District final, in front of a standing-room-only crowd, to claim the Bears’ first district crown since 1984.

  • Collins takes on host Henry...

    The second season begins tonight for Collins’ boys basketball team.

    The Titans, who finished runners-up in the 30th District Tournament last week, take on host Henry County at 6:30 p.m. this evening in the first round of the 8th Region Tournament at New Castle.

    “We’re glad to be in the regional tournament with a chance to keep playing,” Collins Coach Curtis Turley said.

    The Titans (18-11) didn’t play the Wildcats (16-14) during the regular season, but they do share some common opponents.
