  • Rockets vs Titans: Round 1 comes...

    Cross-town rivals Shelby County and Collins high schools took to the diamond Monday night and the two teams didn’t disappoint with pitchers Will McDonald and Michael Gammons turning in gems on the mound, as Collins squeezed out a 1-0 win on the road and took command of the 30th District race.

    The two pitchers combined for 14 strikeouts in complete game performances, but it was Collins’ bats – with McDonald in another key role – that finally broke through in the 6th.

  • A perfect return

    A Collins junior was back on the court again less than two months after recovering from brain surgery.

    “I had practice yesterday, but this is my first game,” she said, relaxing on bench waiting for her turn on the court.

    She recalled that day early in the year when she was stricken.

    The Collins and Anderson County baseball teams could have spent their entire summers at Kings Island and not have had a roller coaster ride like they experienced Tuesday night.

    Collins spotted the visiting Bearcats an early six-run lead, then rallied to overcome a 5-run deficit before holding on for a wild 13-12 30th District win.

    Collins overcame eight errors to post its second win over Anderson in as many nights and in the process evened its record at 6-6, 2-0 in district play.
