  • Experienced group to lead Titans this season

    Although the Collins girls’ soccer team lost eight seniors to graduation last season, the Titans anticipate making another bid for the 30th District title in 2018, and hope to make it back to the 8th Region tournament.

    Helping with the transition will be leading scorer Braelyn Gantt who scored 30 goals in 17 games last season while also dishing out 15 assists, good for second on the team last season.

  • Shelby an experienced, deep team for 2018

    The Shelby County girls’ cross country team will look to keep its improvement rolling into next season, as head coach Aaron Shepherd moves into his second season as head of the program.

    The Rockets will have four runners aged 10th grade or older moving into the season, as Hannah Woods and Evelyn Enriquez make up the two eldest athletes on the team, both being seniors.

  • Titan will make strides on course

    The Collins girls’ cross-country program should see a great deal of improvement from last season’s group, with Madeline Petty serving as the team’s primary leader and only senior on roster for 2018.

    Head coach George Sanderlin has high expectations for a group with a solid amount of experience and talent returning from last season with another year under each respective runner’s belt.

  • Several new faces to lead Rockets in 2018

    Having lost most of its senior-heavy roster to graduation with the conclusion of last season, the Shelby County boys’ cross-country team will attempt to once again rebuild and retool in 2018.

    The Rockets will have many new faces on roster for this season, with just one junior in Sam Powers and no seniors returning this year.

  • Young Titans will have room to grow

    Collins boys’ cross country team is young, but prepared and ready to make a run at the region and state meets while cutting down on times coming into the 2018 season.

    Head coach George Sanderlin says that adding state champion athlete and senior T.J. Rawlins should help anchor the team in its trials while also providing leadership for a young collection of runners.

    “On the boys side, things are a little uncertain. However, senior T.J. Rawlins will be joining us,” Sanderlin said. “He adds leadership to a young team.”

  • Seniors will anchor solid SCHS defense

    After going 19-16 and making a trip to the 8th Region Tournament last season, Shelby County will attempt to reload with younger athletes who saw a good deal of playing time last season.

    With three seniors on roster for this season’s group, the team will look to Amya Jones, Mollie Wills and Calley Moore to help lead a squad comprised of three juniors and five freshman athletes.

  • Titans expect to keep rolling for 2018

    Although the Collins volleyball team lost two important net players in Julia and Nicole Belcher from last season, the Titans still return many key pieces that should translate into another successful year this season.

    With several players coming back in 2018, head coach Cary Clark has high expectations for this season’s team, and wants to continue dominating the 30th District matches in the process.

    Following its district tournament run, the team advanced to the 8th Region semifinals and was able to win a set over eventual champion North Oldham.
