  • Darkness wins the day

    The Collins boys’ and girls’ tennis teams both saw their season-opening matches at Oldham County on Wednesday called because of darkness.

    The girls’ match was tied at 1-1, and the Colonels led the Titans, 2-0, when boys' play was stopped.

    On the girls’ side, Collins sophomore Paige Kregor defeated Oldham’s Nicole Muller, 6-2, 6-0, at No. 1 singles. At No. 2 singles, Oldham’s Bailey Hill defeated seventh-grader Blair Nethery, 6-3, 6-1.

    The Cornerstone Christian boys’ basketball team had a fine finish to its much-improved season.

    The Bulldogs won their first two games of the Kentucky Christian Athletic Association’s Boys Varsity Basketball Tournament last Saturday before falling in the championship game, 53-38, to Community Christian on Monday night at Georgetown College.

    “Overall I’m very proud of the guys’ effort this season. They exceeded my expectations,” second-year coach Jason Bradshaw said.

  • Conor Doyle to fulfill his dad’s...

    Something Conor Doyle’s father had told him for a long time certainly rang true Monday afternoon.

    That’s when Doyle, a Collins senior, signed in the high school’s library to play golf at Cincinnati Christian University. 

    “My dad [Todd] has been telling me all my life I was going to be a preacher and a golfer,” Doyle said, “and Cincinnati Christian University makes that possible. I always thought he was crazy, but now it’s possible.”

    The first Collins softball team advanced to the 8th Region championship game.

    The Titans’ second squad hopes to takes things one step farther.

    “The girls have set a goal that they want to go to State,” said Collins Coach Jim Axline, whose team’s season-opener scheduled for Thursday at North Oldham was postponed by rain and will now be at 5:30 p.m. Tuesday against South Oldham. “It’s good to have those type of goals, and we’ll run with it from there.…I expect us to battle right in there with last year.”

  • Rockets will send out young teams

    The Shelby County tennis teams won’t be long in the tooth this spring, but that could be good for them in the long run. 

     

    Boys are young

    The Rockets graduated their No. 1 singles player, Michael Karas but still return several key players from last season – even though they are underclassmen – along with a couple of key newcomers. 

  • Girls have Kregor; boys have...

    Youth will be served, and it will also be serving, for the Collins tennis teams this spring.

    The Titans lost a trio of key seniors to graduation from their inaugural boys’ and girls’ squads.

    This year both teams will be even younger – with no seniors on either squad – for their second seasons, which begin at 5 p.m. today at Oldham County.

     

    Girls have Kregor

  • Shelby County boys take 4th at...

    The outdoor track & field season hasn’t started yet, but the Shelby County boys’ team already is making noise indoors.

    The Rockets finished in fourth place in the Class AA portion of this past Saturday’s 52nd annual Mason-Dixon Games at Broadbent Arena in Louisville.

    Shelby County won two events to go along with a third-place finish, a fourth, fifth and one sixth to total 38 points. That was just 18 behind champion Central, 11 behind second-place Mercer County and 3.5 behind third-place North Oldham.
