  • Turley back for seconds in...

    By his own admission Curtis Turley is a basketball coaching “nomad.”


    He has crisscrossed Kentucky throughout his 32-year career. He has coached in Berea and Bowling Green, Louisville and Lexington, Eddyville and now Shelbyville for a second time.


    On Tuesday night Turley made his debut as the new head coach of the Collins boys’ basketball team, a little more than a decade after he guided Shelby County (1997-99) for two years.



    When compared with its crosstown rival at Shelby County, the Collins High School girls’ basketball team isn’t very young.


    With the Collins-Shelby County split, as well as the transfer of Darryl Hicks to Trinity, the Eighth Region is arguably as wide open as its ever been. Here’s a closer look:


    Coach: Glen Drury.


    Collins boys’ basketball coach Curtis Turley is more concerned about who is on his first Titans’ team, rather than who is not.

    But the truth is he knows who he has; he just doesn’t know what he has yet.

  • EARLIER: Collins' Shuck...

    In a season for firsts for Collins High School's boys soccer team, Brandon Shuck has added another.

    Shuck, a senior forward and defender, has been selected first team All-State by the Kentucky High School Soccer Coaches Association.

    “That’s a great honor,” Titans Coach Scott Cress said. “He’ll forever be the first kid from Collins to be first-team All-State.”

    Shuck led Collins, which finished its first season 14-6-1, with 16 goals and with his actions too.

    Cross Country: SCHS' Webb, Anderson run well at Meet of Champions

    Shelby County sophomore Taylor Webb and senior Alyssa Anderson had solid showings Saturday in the Kentucky Track & Cross County Coaches Association (KTCCCA) Meet of Champions at Masterson Station Park in Lexington.

  • State cross country: SCHS...

    It has been a surprising season for the Shelby County cross-country team.

    Losing its best runner - Caterina Karas - to Collins, the Rockets didn’t have much experience returning from last season other than sophomore Taylor Webb and senior Alyssa Anderson.


    This season will be as much about laying a foundation as it will be about the present for the Shelby County girls’ basketball team.

  • Brooks quarterbacks Titans...

    Michael Brooks has scored 10 touchdowns this football season.

    The Collins High School junior has eight TDs as a running back and two – returns of an interception and a fumble – from his linebacker position.

    But there’s one thing that Brooks says he likes more than a touchdown – making a tackle.

    “It stops the other team from scoring,” he said. “Defense is more important than offense at this point.”

  • Collins' comeback falls...

    Collins’ comeback came up just short Friday night in the Class AAAA football quarterfinals. 

    The Titans nearly made an improbable rally from a 21-point first-quarter deficit, and a 17-point one in the fourth quarter, before falling to Western 31-26 in the Region 2 title tilt at Titans Stadium.
