  • 30th District Softball...

    Janelle and Janette Hynes were a twin-killing for the Collins softball team Thursday night.

    The sophomore twins played key roles in the host Titans’ 8-2 victory over crosstown-rival Shelby County in the 30th District Tournament semifinals.

  • Burk's blast lifts Titans...

    LAWRENCEBURG – E.J. Burk hadn’t homered in the first 91 at-bats of this baseball season, or any of his previous high school plate appearances for that matter, until Tuesday night.

    The junior’s 3-run home run in the bottom of the sixth inning broke a 3-all tie and propelled Collins to a 7-3 victory over host Anderson County in the 30th District Tournament final.  Burk’s blast over the centerfield fence, off Josh Brown, lifted the Titans to their second straight district title.

  • Karas eyes triple crown, records

    Gabby Karas will run for a triple crown today.

    And her coach wouldn’t be surprised if she ran away with a state record, or two, too.

    The Collins freshman is the top seed in three events – the girls’ 800-, 1,600- and 3,200-meter runs - at the Class AA KHSAA State Track & Field Championships, which begins at 4:30 p.m. at the University of Kentucky’s Outdoor Track Complex in Lexington.

  • Vogel inks with Centre

    Caleb Vogel was a big reason, both figuratively and literally, the Collins boys’ soccer team had one of the top defenses in the state the past two seasons.

    The 6-foot-6 defender helped the Titans yield just 31 goals in 42 matches, in which they went 32-6-4 and won back-to-back district titles. Vogel signed to continue his career at Centre College on Wednesday in the high school’s library.

  • Miller mows down Bears

    LAWRENCEBURG – Paul Miller methodically mowed down Spencer County, and Zac Wiley delivered the knockout blow for the Collins baseball team Monday night.

    Miller, a senior right-hander, tossed a two-hit, complete-game shutout and struck out a school-record 16 batters while Wiley, a fellow senior, hit a grand slam in the bottom of the sixth inning to propel the Titans to a 5-0 win over the Bears in the 30th District Tournament semifinals at Anderson County.

  • Bearcats knock out Rockets

    LAWRENCEBURG – The Shelby County baseball team beat Anderson County 4-3 on April 24 with an ending that left Rockets Coach Bart “Rudy” Roettger flabbergasted.

    Roettger was overcome again Monday night, but this time for a different reason.

    The Bearcats avenged that earlier loss with a 10-6 triumph over Shelby County in the 30th District Tournament semifinals at Anderson.

    “That’s one of the hardest losses I’ve ever had,” Roettger said.

  • NGA, Bohannon visiting...

    It’s been a happy homecoming for Derrick Bohannon so far this week.

    The Shelbyville native is back in town for business, and pleasure. His work? Playing professional golf.

    Bohannon, a 2003 graduate of Shelby County High School who now lives in Florida, is one of hundreds here this week to participate in the National Golf Association Pro Tour’s Bluegrass Open presented by Lucky 8 Stables at the Shelbyville Country Club. The event is free to the public.

  • Collins, Shelby meet for shot at...

    Fifteen days after the Collins softball team edged Shelby County 6-5 on Sydney Cloyd’s two-run home run, the crosstown rivals meet again tonight, this time with a little more on the line – their seasons.

    The host, and second-seeded, Titans (17-18, 2-1) take on the No. 3 seeded Rockets (12-17, 1-2) at 7:30 in the second 30th District Tournament semifinal. Collins has won the first five meeting by an average of nearly eight runs per game, but the Rockets had the Titans on the ropes May 6 before Cloyd’s homer in the bottom of the sixth.

  • SOFTBALL: CHS wins 2; SCHS 1-1

    The Collins softball team closed out its regular season with a pair of come-from-behind victories in the DuPont Manual Round Robin on Saturday in Louisville. 

    The Titans topped the host Crimsons 9-8 in the morning, and then outlasted LaRue County 14-7 in the afternoon for their eighth victory in their last nine games.

    Against Manual, Collins rallied for five runs in the sixth, and final, frame.

  • Karas cruises to triple

    Gabby Karas pushed herself, and her competition, to the brink Tuesday night in the Class AA, Region 3 meet.

    And she didn’t blink.  

    The Collins freshman captured three events, the 800-, 1,600- and 3,200-meter runs - achieving personal-best times in each - at Christian Academy of Louisville.

    “I kind of surprised myself, honestly,” said Karas, the two-time defending state champ in the 1,600 and the reigning state champ in the 3,200. “I kind of doubted myself [coming in]. I guess I realized what I’m capable of.
