    The Collins High School volleyball captured the first hardware for the school’s trophy case Wednesday night.

    The Titans won the 30th District Tournament final over Shelby County 25-17, 15-25, 25-18 at Henry County.

    “It’s really exciting,” Collins junior middle blocker Ashley Williams said.

    Both teams advance to next week’s Eighth Region Tournament.

    The Shelby County girls soccer team’s season ended Tuesday night.

    “We got beat by a team that played much better than we did,” Shelby County Coach Joe Turner said. “We played hard but not together. Once we fell behind, we lost our focus and South Oldham took advantage.”

  • Shelby vs. Collins was brother...

    Friday night’s first football game between Shelby County and Collins high schools pitted former teammates against each other.

    It pitted friend against friend.

    And, in at least one instance, it pitted brother against brother.

    Logan Forrest is a senior linebacker for the Rockets. His younger brother, Landon, is a freshman wide receiver/defensive back for the Titans. It's an odd situation to say the least, but not so, said the brothers.

  • State girls golf: Rockets finish...

    Shelby County senior Michaela Manley searched for the words to summarize the girls’ 2010 Leachman Buick-GMC/KHSAA State Golf Championships.

    “Bad,“ she said after a long sigh.
