  • Up, up and away – all day, every day

    Tuesday was another typical day for Collins senior Logan Bailey.

    It began with a drive to Frankfort in the morning for the first part of his school day, then it was back to Shelbyville in the afternoon for classes at Collins.

    After school it was football practice. Then after that it was back in the car (as his mother, Leigh, drove) so he could do his best Clark Kent impersonation – changing into his soccer uniform – and eat a drive-thru dinner before arriving in Taylorsville for a soccer match.

    It was Collins’ first victory over the Bears in the program’s brief history. Spencer County beat the Titans twice in 2010 and two more times last season, including 6-0 in the district tournament.

    “They beat us in districts last year, so this is pretty awesome,” senior midfielder Shelby Vogel said.
