  • Collins takes game one

     In a rescheduled Hometown Showdown Monday, the Titans held serve at home with a 3-2 win over the visiting Rockets.

    The two baseball teams had been scheduled to play their home-and-away 30th District seeding games Friday and Saturday, but weather forced the action to this week.

    The delay, however, didn’t hurt the product on the field.

    Collins used some timely hitting and a dominating performance from pitcher Evan Payne to secure the win.

  • Collins falls to top-ranked Manual, 11-7

     After winning their last two games, the Collins softball team returned to action on Monday and hosted No. 1-ranked Manual Crimsons (24-1).

    It didn’t take long for the Crimsons to flex their muscles, scoring 8 runs in the first inning to jump out to an early lead.

    But despite Manual’s hot start, the Titans answered in the bottom of the inning with Ella Staples’ RBI fielder’s choice to score Hallie Renfro from third.

  • Chargers trounce Rockets 21-8

     After the first three innings of play, it looked like Bullitt East was the team celebrating a past state champion squad.

    The Chargers raced out to a 10-0 lead after three innings, as the Shelby County High School baseball team was rocked back on its heels. Bullitt East would go on to coast to the 21-8 win.

    Shelby got on the board with a Blake Cook RBI single in the third, but Bullitt East never slowed down. The Chargers put up four more runs in the fourth, pushing the lead to 14-1 before the Rockets showed some signs of life.
