    Bates, a rising junior for both the Collins football team and the Titans’ swimming program recently fully recovered from a car accident in November of 2016 that left him with several physical injuries and without all of his mental faculties for weeks.

    The placekicker says that it took four to five months of both physical and neurological rehabilitation to get back 100 percent healthy.

    The event saw Shelby use its numbers to blowout its opponent, 379-146.

    “This was our last regular season home meet, and I thought we raced well,” Stingrays coach Tom Coons said. “I still believe we can be more diligent with our starts and turns, but we’ll work on that when we face Cooper Farms on Thursday.”

  • Post 37 wins 3 straight over week

    The Shelbyville American Legion baseball team turned in its first perfect week of the summer season, going a perfect 3-0 against a pair of Indiana teams from Madison and Rockport, as well as Kentucky tournament host Lyon County over the course of last week.

  • Shelby Stingrays swim season...

    The Shelbyville Stingrays swim team will look to defend its 2016 Summer Fun League title this year, once again behind coach Tom Coons’ guidance.

    To capture its third title in as many years, the Stingrays will need top-notch performances from its best swimmers, as only the top-three of each event are scored.

    Blanton was officially hired as the new coach on Friday morning, per athletic director Charlotte Marshall.

    Blanton spent the 2016-17 season on the sidelines for the Rockets under former head coach Jason Holland.

  • Collins embracing pace this...

    Coming off of the most successful season in program history and its first ever win at the KHSAA State Basketball Tournament, the Collins boys’ basketball team has retooled its strategy over the summer from last year.

    With the loss of lengthy forwards Charlie Cochran and Dominique Turner to graduation, the Titans will turn to a guard-heavy line up with the returns of Nick Fort, Jacob Feltner, Dayvion McKnight and Marcellus Vail.

    The team hopes the move to a four-guard starting lineup will pay dividends once the season starts this fall.
