  • SOFTBALL: Titans hang on to win championship

    When the final out of the 30th District Tournament came, it was more relief than rejoice for the Collins softball team.

    Only after a few minutes did smiles emerge and Titans Coach Jim Axline get a bucket of water dumped on him.

    “When we got the last out, we were like, ugh,” Collins senior center fielder Kristina Gramig said.

  • BASEBALL: Second verse, same as the first for Collins vs. SCHS

    The rematch was a rerun.

    For the second time in two weeks the Collins baseball team shelled Shelby County, 15-3, Wednesday night. This time around it came in the 30th District Tournament semifinals and in five innings, on the Titans’ home field.

    The Rockets tried to flip the script from their first meeting (won by Collins, 15-3, in six innings at Shelby) by giving the Titans several different looks on the mound, but Collins used a similar formula to end Shelby’s season.

  • Kregor’s surprising run ends at hands of old foe

    Paige Kregor lost to a familiar foe Thursday morning in the first round of the Girls’ State Tennis Tournament.

    The Collins freshman fell to Assumption sophomore Abbie Mather – “We played at the same place growing up,” Kregor said – 6-0, 6-0, at the University of Kentucky’s Boone/Downing Tennis Center.

    “I played bad,” Kregor said. “You just kind of have those. It just wasn’t my day.”

    Mather is one of the players seeded 9-16 in the tournament.

  • BASEBALL: Rockets pick up where they left off

    A change of venue didn’t seem to matter to the Shelby County baseball team.

    The Rockets, whose opening-round game against Eminence in the 30th District Tournament was suspended by rain Monday night, picked up where they left off Tuesday night, walloping the Warriors, 16-0, at Eminence.

    Shelby County led, 2-0, Monday when the game was suspended in the middle of the second inning.

  • Rockets show growth in splitting final 2 games

    The Shelby County softball team may have saved two of its best games of the season for its last two games of its season, but the Rockets fell narrowly short of the 30th District final.

    Shelby County took an early lead, 2-0, on top-seeded Spencer County in the 30th District semifinals Tuesday – after completing a 9-0 victory over Eminence in an opening-round game that had been suspended by rain Monday – before the Bears rallied for a 4-2 victory.
