  • Rockets take round one from...

    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...

    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.

  • Titans trade weekend wins

    The Collins baseball team picked up a win over a talented Male squad Thursday in a comeback effort, but couldn’t maintain that momentum in a tough 9 inning loss to Central Hardin on Saturday afternoon.

  • Rockets pick up two wins over...

    The Shelby County baseball team closed out its 4-1 record over the last week with a pair of victories and one loss, at the hands of Silver Creek, Ind. in the late afternoon on Saturday.

    “I thought we continued to swing the bat well, and we beat two quality teams in Franklin and Carroll,” Shelby coach Devin Hicks said. “Silver Creek has a heck of a team and hasn’t lost yet this season. We just never quite got on track in that one.”

  • Titans go 1-2 at Frankfort

    The Titans softball team ended the Capital City Showcase tournament 1-2, picking up a win over George Rogers Clark before falling to Pulaski County and Mercer County to close out the weekend.

    “We’re still not hitting the ball as consistently as we’d like,” Titans coach Charlie LeCompte said. “And we need to clean up our mistakes defensively if we want to put ourselves in a spot to win games.”

  • Rockets go winless at Capital...

  • Collins splits with Spencer
