  • Wiley mows down Rockets with a...

    In the middle innings of Thursday night’s crosstown showdown between the Collins and Shelby County baseball teams, one of Zac Wiley’s teammates broke one of the biggest unwritten rules in all of baseball – he mentioned the fact that the Titans’ senior was throwing a no-hitter.

    In a sport saturated with superstitions that’s a no-no.

    For Wiley, though, it was no big deal.

  • Shelby residents complete Boston...

    Two Shelby County women completed the Boston Marathon a year after the prestigious race was marred by bombings.

    Amy Kendall of Shelbyville and Rhonda Braden of Fisherville completed the 26.2-mile course Monday in New England.

    Kendall covered the course in 3 hours, 35 minutes and 35 seconds to finish 11,006th overall, 2,939th in her gender and 2,113rd in her division. Kendall also finished the race last year before the bombings near the finish line.

  • BASEBALL: Collins blanks...

    The Collins baseball team extended its win streak to six games and its streak of holding opponents scoreless to 27 consecutive innings, as the Titans topped host Woodford County 12-0 in five innings Saturday and host Spencer County 9-0 Monday.

    Against the Yellow Jackets (2-12) in Versailles, senior Mason Jeffries tossed a three-hit shutout. Jeffries struck out one and recorded 39 strikes in his 51 pitches.

  • Wiley no-hits Rockets

    Collins senior Zac Wiley did more than shutout the Shelby County baseball team Thursday evening, he no-hit the Rockets.

    The right-hander’s “no-no” gave the Titans a 3-0 triumph over visiting Shelby County.

    The Bellarmine University-signee walked two and struck out five in an 80-pitch gem.

    “He was outstanding,” Collins Coach Roy Bailey said.

    The Titans (12-2), No. 14 in the state coaches poll and No. 15 in the Kentucky Prep Top 25, won for the eighth time in their last nine games.

  • Titans, Rockets get new district...

  • Bearcats blank Titans

    The Collins softball team held Anderson County, the highest-scoring team in the 8th Region, below its season scoring average Wednesday evening.

    Unfortunately for the Titans, the second-highest scoring team in the region, the host Bearcats did the same as Anderson County blanked Collins 5-0 in a rematch of last year’s 30th District Tournament final in Lawrenceburg.
