  • Turner sinks Anderson for region...

    Since last Wednesday’s victory over Oldham County, Collins senior Dominique Turner has had one goal: Make it back to Rupp Arena for the Sweet 16 State Tournament.

    The forward got his opportunity with five seconds remaining in regulation and down 53-52 to Anderson County, stepping up to the foul line with a chance to put his team ahead in the 8th Region Championship game.

  • Shelby struggles in season...

    Shelby County’s 2017 campaign got off to a rocky start Wednesday night, as the Rockets were defeated handily by Trinity, 10-0, in just five innings of action.

    Shelby’s hitting was non-existent in the loss, with the team being shutout on both the scoreboard and in the hits column.

  • Collins grinds out win over...

    With senior forwards Charlie Cochran fouled out and Dominique Turner nursing a sore ankle, point guard Dayvion McKnight came through for Collins in a big spot.

    With 4.4 seconds remaining in regulation, the freshman McKnight stepped to the line for a pair of free throws that would put the Titans (22-12) ahead by four points and effectively seal the game.

  • Shelby looks to build off...

    Last season, the Shelby County softball team made a deep postseason run thanks to a combination of upperclassman talent and a pair of emerging freshman contributors.

    Despite the loss of five seniors to graduation in 2016, SCHS will look to carry that postseason momentum into this season and return to the 8th Region Tournament.

  • Young Titans growing on diamond...

    The Collins softball team will look to compete with a number of new faces on the varsity roster this season.

    10 of the Titans’ 16 players will be sophomores or younger, but despite the relative youthfulness of the unit, Collins returns two pitchers that will anchor the team on the mound this year in junior Paige Oldham and sophomore Carson Murray.

    According to the Titans’ head coach, the team will boast a good amount of experience in its roster.

  • Turner paces Titans past No. 13...

    Don’t call it an upset.

    Talking to senior forward Dominique Turner and head coach Chris Gaither following Collins’ 62-59 defeat of Oldham County, both the player and coach echoed the same sentiment: This team simply did not want its season to end on Wednesday in the 8th Region Tournament at Henry County High School.

    “I had to do it [take control of the game],” Turner said afterwards. “I want to make it back to Rupp [Arena in Lexington, the site of the Sweet 16].”

  • Ellis leads Shelby from behind...

    This season, the Shelby County baseball team is looking to capture its first 30th district title since 2010. In order to accomplish that goal, the Rockets will need its combination of youth and experienced players to meld together throughout the season.

    Junior catcher Matthew Ellis will be a large part of the team’s success after hitting .345 last season for SCHS with 18 RBIs as a sophomore.

  • Collins looks to senior...

    While the Collins’ High School baseball team is experienced coming into the 2017 season, it will need some leadership to emerge on the mound.

    With the graduation of Will McDonald, Austin Jennings, and Bryson Dillow at the end of last season, the Titans lost most of its production from its pitching staff. The team returns two of its starting hurlers from last season, and both should play bigger roles this year.

  • Anderson outlasts Collins for...

    The final 2:54 of Friday night’s 30th District boys’ title game proved to be crucial in deciding a champion.

    Over the final 174 seconds of regulation, Anderson County outscored Collins 11-3 and locked up its second consecutive district championship with a 53-44 win over the Titans (20-12).

    The Bearcats (19-11) relied heavily on guard Cobe Penny late, as the junior knocked down three of his four free throw attempts to help put the game out of reach of Collins.

  • Karas inks with Virginia

    One of the top athletes in the state of Kentucky has officially signed with the University of Virginia.

    Collins senior Gabriella Karas penned her letter of intent to compete for UVA on Thursday afternoon, surrounded by friends, family, and former coaches.
