  • Shelby, Collins advance in...

    With the 8th Region tennis tournament held in Frankfort over the mornings of Monday and Tuesday, several athletes from both Collins and Shelby County high schools have advanced through the first day of matches and are within striking distance of a KHSAA State Tennis Tournament appearance.

    For Collins, top singles player Rylee Suttor advanced through the first three rounds of tournament play, and is one win shy of qualifying for the state tournament.

  • Shelby shutout by Spencer on the...

    For the majority of the matchup between Shelby County softball and district-foe Spencer County, it looked like the contest would go scoreless for a long time.

    But the Bears bats awoke in the fifth inning on a pair of home runs to give Spencer the 4-0 lead and the shutout win over Shelby.

    The Rockets (8-12-1, 0-5 district) tallied just three hits against a solid pitching performance from Spencer’s (17-8, 3-3 district) Emily Cole.

  • Timely hits lead Collins past...

    If consistency is the most important thing when hitting a baseball, Collins showed it had the ability to make Henry County pay with a trifecta of scoring bursts in a 7-4 win Monday.

    The Titans racked up two runs in each of the second, third and fourth innings against the hosting Wildcats (18-6).

  • Shelby drops three at weekend...

    Shelby’s matchup with Daviess County looked very similar to the loss the day before at the hands of Christian County in the Town and Country Classic in Hopkinsville.

    Despite earning nine hits as a team, SCHS just could not find a timely hit against the Panthers, logging a tough 9-2 loss while leaving six base runners stranded.

    Daviess got to Shelby starting pitcher Brandon Moore early, tagging the pitcher for 11 hits and eight earned runs.

  • Anderson uses hitting for...

    Collins baseball’s 30th District showdown at Anderson County on Monday night showed the incredible plate presence of the Bearcats.

    With winds of over 25 miles per hour, the Bearcats took advantage with power hitting, using the elements as an aid for the long ball.

    Anderson (12-9, 4-1 district) racked up 10 runs in the first three innings alone, rolling up a 12-2 run rule win over the Titans (17-11, 4-1 district) just two frames later.

  • Collins defeats visiting...

    The Collins tennis teams each picked up a win on Monday night, going a combined 9-1 in the boys and girls standings in the win over Frankfort.

    The girls’ team finished a perfect 5-0, anchored by No. 1 singles player Rylee Suttor.

    Suttor picked up a 6-0, 6-2 win over her opponent in quick fashion.

    After the Panthers forfeited its second and third singles matches due to lack of players, the No. 1 doubles team of Blair Nethery and Madi Hurley sealed the fourth win for the Titans with a 6-1, 6-0 victory.

  • Collins boys take home meet

    The Collins boys’ track and field team turned in arguably its most successful meet of the season with a win at home Friday.

    The Titans took first place in the boys’ standings with 107 total points, finishing three ahead of second-place North Bullitt.

    Thanks to a trifecta of school records being set, Collins cruised even with most of its varsity athletes resting in preparation for the upcoming region meet.

  • Shelby hits stride in win over...

    Shelby County came into Thursday’s matchup at Butler struggling from the plate, but the Rockets left Louisville having found its hitting stroke once again.

    After scoring one run in its previous three contests combined, Shelby’s (11-12-1) offense exploded with timely hits that allowed the Rockets to come away with the 7-3 win over the Bears (14-7).

  • Collins fishing headed to state

    Just one season into the Collins High School bass fishing program, and the team is already making waves.

    Anglers Ian Nation and Jack Swindler earned a 13th-place finish at last weekend’s Region 2 meet, and are headed to Kentucky Lake to take part in the KHSAA State Fishing Competition on May 12-13.

    “I’m very excited that we were able to place a team,” Titans coach Sara Fitzpatrick said. “Both [Nation and Swindler] are young, and our program looks strong for the future.”

  • Collins bats come alive versus...

    With a more aggressive mindset at the plate, the Collins baseball team racked up 16 hits and took advantage of four Shelby County errors en route to a 13-0 win on Tuesday night.

    Following the close 2-1 win over the Rockets (10-12-1, 1-3 district) the night before, Titans head coach Mike Hammond stressed getting more quality at-bats to his team heading into night two of the series.
