  • Season one

     As the 2018-19 athletic season comes to a close for the Shelby County Rockets and Collins Titans, it was never short of headline stories.

    My first day at The Sentinel-News was on Oct. 17, and my first assignment as a reporter was to cover the first round of the 8th Region Soccer Tournament and a game between the Titans and the South Oldham Dragons. For those who remember, the Titans would fall to the Dragons 2-0 and the post game interviews gave me a reality check of the duties of being a sports reporter.

  • Titans’ Suttor named to CJ All Area Golf Team

     Collins High School’s Rylee Suttor was tabbed for the All Area Golf Team as the Courier Journal’s Sports Awards night Sunday.

    Suttor, a senior who is committed to play golf at Centre next season, finished 17th at the KHSAA State Golf Tournament in October, shooting 11-over in the two-day event.

    Suttor was also the first Titan, male or female, to make the state cut.

  • Unity doesn’t mean we have to think the same

    By Dave Charlton

    1 Therefore if you have any encouragement from being united with Christ, if any comfort from his love, if any common sharing in the Spirit, if any tenderness and compassion,

    2 then make my joy complete by being like-minded, having the same love, being one in spirit and of one mind.
