  • Karas sets 3 state records in 3...

    LEXINGTON – After winning the 1,600-meter run – the first of her three scheduled events at the Class AA KHSAA Track & Field State Championships – Collins freshman Gabby Karas coughed, bothered by allergies, as she walked across the green infield of the University of Kentucky’s Outdoor Track Complex.
    “I don’t know about this tripling stuff,” she said.

    NEW CASTLE – Zach Wiley was hitting spots with his fastball, keeping hitters off-balance with a hard slider and letting a superb defense make plays behind him.

    Wiley pitched a one-hit shutout Monday night for his Collins Titans, who beat North Oldham 4-0 in the final first round game of the Region 8 tournament at Henry County.

    Mother Nature nearly threw a knockout-punch at the Bluegrass Open Golf Tournament at the Shelbyville Country Club but thanks to volunteers, golfers and fans won the fight.

    After last week’s storms downed several dozen trees and structures, the course looked more like a war-torn ghost town littered with debris than it did a lush collection of pristine fairways and smooth greens.

    By John Herndon/Landmark News Service


    Once Anderson County got zeroed in, the numbers started coming.

    The Bearcats exploded for four runs in both the third and fourth innings on the way to an 11-1 five-inning victory over host Collins in the 30th District Tournament championship game Friday night. The game was called after the fifth inning because of the “mercy rule.”

    WARSAW – A big first inning paved the way for an Oldham County win Monday in the first round of the 8th Region Softball Tournament at Gallatin County.

    The Lady Colonels broke out of the gate with four runs and held on to beat Collins 7-4.

    “The main thing was hitting,” OC coach Steve Leanhart said. “That’s our team.

  • 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.
