  • Titans shut door on Anderson County

    The Titans showcased how tough of an opponent it is for district teams at home on Monday night, keeping foe Anderson County at bay and preventing the Bearcats from making a comeback win.

    “We were not sharp on the mound, I think we hit eight guys and several with two strikes,” Titans coach Mike Hammond said. “Those are kind of unforced errors, and things that can’t happen.”

  • Titans win game two, splits series with Shelby

    The Thursday meeting between rivals Shelby County and Collins was far less contentious than the contest the day before, as the Titans came away with a 4-1 win and split the season series at one game apiece.

    While the game ended differently than the Wednesday meeting between teams, much of the contest appeared the same, with one team taking a small lead early, only to have the other come back shortly thereafter for the win.

  • Shelby County rallies to top Collins

    Game one of the two-game set between rivals Shelby County and Collins high schools went to the Rockets on Wednesday night, as the Rockets rallied late for a 2-1 victory.

    The win did not come without controversy, however, as a call in the top of the seventh inning swayed the result of the game permanently.

    With two outs and the bases loaded, Titan first baseman Evan Payne had a chance to knot the game, with the count sitting at two balls and two strikes.

  • Rockets take round one from Titans

    Seven innings was simply not enough to decide a winner between Collins and Shelby County’s softball teams on Wednesday night.

    Eight frames were needed in the first of two meetings between the county rivals this season, with the Rockets pulling out a 6-5 district win.

    Tied at 5-5 in the top of the eighth, outfielder Haley Vermillion scored what proved to be the game-winning run following an errant throw on a sacrifice bunt attempt from teammate Lauren Heckel.

  • Crowe heads to the Arizona Cardinals

    Growing up in Shelbyville, Austin Crowe never thought he would be working in a capacity with an NFL team, but that dream has become a reality.

    The former equipment manager for both Shelby County and Collins high schools recently accepted a post as an intern with the Arizona Cardinals’ equipment staff, and will be assisting the team through its training camp in the summer months.

  • Investing in the future

     Hollie King, owner of Eight Twenty 8 Boutique on Main Street, is proud to invest in the next generation.

    “I honestly believe that they are the future,” King said, standing in front of a hand painted sign designed by a young Shelby County entrepreneur, Annali White. “She painted that. She brought it in as a ‘Thank you for putting my stuff in your store.’”

    King opened the boutique in October in the former Tipsy Gypsy location at 610 Main Street and said she was elated when two young girls approached her with their designs.
