    The Collins Titans coasted into the 30th District finals Monday with a 3-0 win over cross-county rival Shelby County.

    The Rockets (6-23) hung close in the opening match, falling 25-20, and then Collins (24-9) turned up the heat in the final two games.

    The Titans rolled 25-12 in the second game and won comfortably 25-18 in the third and final game.

    The win put Collins into the 30th District finals against Spencer County (20-10) last night, but the results were not available at press time. The Bears topped Anderson County, 3-2, in a tight match Monday.


    The Shelby County High School football team was rested and ready Friday night.

    The Rockets returned from the bye week in a big way, hammering visiting North Oldham 29-3.

    The Rockets (4-3, 1-1 in the district) dominated from opening kickoff, racing out to a 20-3 lead in the first half, and limiting the Mustangs (3-4, 1-1) to just 95 yards of total offense for the game, including -9 running the ball.

    The dominating performance, SCHS coach Todd Shipley said, is due in large part to the players getting used to their roles on defense.


    The Collins cross country teams took top spots in a lightly raced Titan Classic meet Saturday.

    Collins girls’ squad took first out of three teams at the home meet, besting Kentucky Country Day and Taft.

    The Collins girls finished with 26 points, 11 better than KCD, and Lilly Vest led the way with a 2nd place finish in 23:16. Rounding out the Titans were Madeline Petty in 3rd with a time of 23:39; Audrey Bucknam, 6th, 25:09; Sarah Evans, 7th, 25:52; Mary Grace Vest, 8th, 26:32.

    A week off of her first 5th Region Championship, Shelby County Grace Clark continued her hot streak to close the season with a runner-up finish at the 2018 Leachman Buick GMS Cadillac KHSAA State Golf Championship.

    “The week off was good, hopefully we’re a little healthier,” SCHS coach Todd Shipley said.


    The Collins High School football team reset its focus on the end of the season with its bye this week.

    The Titans are 1-6 on the season, picking up their first win Sept. 21 before falling at Franklin County last week before their bye.

    Collins head coach Jerry Lucas said team took a back-to-basics approach on offense and defense this week.

    “We’ve worked on fundamentals this week, and we put a lot of time in on our offensive and defensive schemes,” Lucas said.

    Clark’s 3-over, 75 paced Shelby County to a second place finish with a team score of 349, 19 strokes behind first place Sacred Heart.

    The second-place finish qualifies Shelby County for the state tournament in Bowling Green next month for the 10th straight season.


    Fresh of its first win of the season last week, the Collins High School football team will look to get its first road win of the year tonight at Franklin County.

    And if the Titans can put back-to-back wins together, it would give them a huge leg-up in the District 4 race.

    Collins (1-5, 1-0 in the district) face the Flyers (3-2, 1-0) on the heels of Franklin’s win at Shelby last week.
