  • Titans fall at home to Ballard

    The Collins football team had no answer for a talented 6A team in Ballard on Friday night, as the Titans dropped its home opener 38-6 and fell to 0-3 this season.

    Bruins’ quarterback Austin Carr did most of the damage through the air for Ballard (1-2), going 10 for 20 with 188 passing yards and a pair of touchdowns and leading to 38 unanswered points before Collins finally hit paydirt with four minutes to go in regulation.

    The Titans struggled to do much offensively during the game, accumulating just 171 total yards in the loss.

  • Titans roll through visiting Anderson

    The Collins volleyball team disposed of district foe Anderson County in quick fashion on Tuesday, as the Bearcats did not score more than 13 points in each of its three sets and the Titans came away with the victory.

  • Shelby travels to take on Meade County

    Shelby County will have a chance to get revenge for last season’s 58-13 defeat at the hands of Meade County tonight, as the Rockets make the trip to Brandenberg to try and even the series with the Green Wave.

  • Oldham County dominates Collins

    The Oldham County soccer team had little difficulty in finding the back of the net early and often on Tuesday night, handing host Collins a 5-2 loss behind a first half onslaught.

    OC was able to score three times in the first half behind breakaway goals, largely thanks to forward Aaron Cook, who found space between the pipes twice in the first 20 minutes of play to give the Colonels (2-2-1) an early advantage.

    Collins (1-4-1) keeper Jorge Garrido made some solid saves early in the game, but the constant pressure applied by Oldham was too much.

  • Columns up at Chatham Garden

     The view from Washington Street is taking people back in time as four historic columns, dating back more than 150 years, have been restored and returned to their former place in Shelbyville.

    City council member Bobby Andriot, who has played a vital role in the restoration of the property, said the columns were part of the original home that dated back to around 1850.

    In 2008, Jenny Van Tiem took over the Shelby County High School band.

Shelby County High School had between 70 and 80 members when she took over, but she hoped to help it grow.
