  • Titans' doubles duo is...

    On the tennis court Derek Stivers and Cy Dutton aren’t very much alike.

    “We’re complete opposites,” Stivers said last week.

    Those dissimilarities, however, have made the Collins senior and junior doubles trouble.

  • Collins vs. Shelby will be a...


    The Collins and Shelby County football teams will compete in the same district beginning in the fall of 2015.

    The Kentucky High School Athletic Association’s Board of Control approved Shelby County’s drop from Class 5A to Class 4A in finalizing football alignments for the 2015-18 seasons Tuesday.

    That differs from last month’s previously proposed draft alignment that had Shelby County, which has played in 5A for the past three seasons, remaining in that class. 

  • Moore tosses back-to-back no...

    Kipp Moore made it two no-nos in a row.

    The Shelby County senior threw his second straight no-hitter – and narrowly missed two consecutive perfect games – as the Rockets routed Owen County 13-0 in five innings last Thursday in Owenton.

    Just six days after throwing a perfect game in Shelby County’s 10-0 five-inning triumph over Newport Central Catholic, Moore struck out eight, induced three groundouts and four flyouts, but hit two batters – the only thing that kept him from perfection – as 38 of his 56 pitches went for strikes. 

  • Titans make it 8 straight

    The Collins baseball team keeps rolling.

    The Titans won their seventh and eighth consecutive games last Thursday and Monday.

    Collins topped visiting Male 4-1 Thursday in a battle of Top 20 teams, before hammering Henry County 21-2 in five innings Monday on Senior Night.


    Collins 4, Male 1 

    Seniors Dre Farris and Zac Wiley led the Titans, who are No. 4 in the Kentucky Prep Report Top 25 and No. 5 in the state coaches poll, over the Bulldogs, who are rated No. 19 and No. 9 in those respective polls.

  • Softball: SCHS wins 2, loses 1;...

    The Shelby County softball team bounced back from its loss to crosstown-rival Collins with victories in two of its last three games.

    The Rockets slammed visiting South Oldham 12-2 in five innings Thursday before falling 3-2 at Owen County on Friday. Shelby County rebounded, though, with a 1-0 shutout at Trimble County on Monday to reach the 10-win plateau.

    Against the Dragons (0-16), the Rockets pounded out 14 hits and sophomore Sydney Wright allowed only three on the mound at the Shelby County Athletic Complex. 

  • Cloyd's clout lifts Titans...

    Sydney Cloyd saved Senior Night.

    Cloyd, one of two seniors on the Collins softball team, hit a two-run homer in the bottom of the sixth inning to propel the Titans to a 6-5 triumph over crosstown-rival Shelby County on Tuesday night, their Senior Night.

    “I would’ve cried [if we would’ve lost], I would’ve been pretty upset,” Cloyd said.

    Instead, she and fellow senior, Lindsey Ketcham, were all smiles after Collins’ fifth consecutive victory, when they were honored.

  • Collins, Shelby doubles qualify...

    FRANKFORT – A pair of boys’ doubles teams, likely for the first time ever, will represent the county at the KHSAA State Tennis Tournament. 

    Collins’ duo of senior Derek Stivers and junior Cy Dutton and Shelby County’s tandem of senior Doug Martin and sophomore Jeron Russell both captured quarterfinal matches Tuesday in the 8th Region Tournament at Franklin County to earn invitations to next week’s state tourney in Lexington. Both teams lost semifinal matches Wednesday, but still advance. 

  • BASEBALL: Jeffries hits 2 HRs...

    Senior Mason Jeffries went 3-for-3 with two home runs and seven RBIs to lead the Collins baseball team to a 17-0 five-inning bombing of visiting Bullitt Central on Tuesday.

    Jeffries hit a three-run home run in the bottom of the Titans’ five-run first inning, added an RBI-single in their three-run second, then hit another three-run homer in the bottom of the seven-run third for the Titans, who recorded their sixth consecutive victory.

  • Postseason tournaments are...

    The postseason for high school spring sports began this week in boys’ and girls’ tennis and boys’ lacrosse and continues next week in track and field and girls’ lacrosse.

    Collins will host the girls’ lacrosse district tournament beginning Monday.

    The next day the Collins and Shelby County boys’ and girls’ track and field teams will compete in the Class AA, Region 3 meet at Christian Academy of Louisville.

    Unfortunately there was no postseason for the first-year Collins boys’ lacrosse team.
