  • Shelby falls to Assumption

    Assumption used a huge first inning to come away with a 6-3 win over visiting Shelby County on Monday night.

    The Louisville-based Rockets plated five runs in the opening frame to set the tone and come away with the win.

    Assumption (16-9) was up 2-1 in the bottom of the first when catcher Sydney Young ripped a massive three-run homer, opening up a 5-1 lead over SCHS after one inning.

  • Titans fall to Ballard at home,...

    The Collins baseball team was not able to complete its contest with Simon Kenton on Saturday, with the game ending after three innings and being ruled a no-contest for both teams by KHSAA due to weather.

    Until the third inning, the Titans had built up a nice 2-0 lead, but the Pioneers came storming back in the second to knot it at 2.

    Then it literally started storming.

    The middle infield duo of second baseman Trevor Pitts and shortstop Drew Goodlett each plated an RBI apiece in the no-contest to allow the Titans to take an early advantage.

  • Titans rip Shelby in district...

    The Collins softball team must have taken its loss to rival Shelby County earlier this season to heart, as the Titans run-ruled the Rockets in six innings on Wednesday in a 12-2 win.

    Collins did something extremely efficiently that it was not able to muster in the April 25 meeting between the teams – hitting – rolling up 11 hits and scoring half of its runs in the first two innings to get ahead of SCHS early in regulation.

  • Shelby clinches top district seed

    Shelby County’s Caleb Collins might not be welcome back in Spencer County this year.

    One night after his walkoff RBI single gave the Rockets (11-9) the win over the Bears, Collins came through with three RBIs and a complete game on the mound to lead the Rockets to an 8-1 win at Spencer (7-10) Tuesday.

    The junior lowered his ERA to 2.81 on the season while moving to 1-2 in six starts, and pushing the Rockets to a 5-1 district record and the top overall seed headed into the postseason.

  • Titans close district play with...

    The Collins baseball team closed its district slate of games on a high note in Lawrenceburg on Tuesday, handily defeating Anderson County, 10-4.

    The win was an absolute thumping from the visiting Titans (14-10), as Collins plated seven runs by the end of the fourth inning and held the Bearcats (3-17) scoreless for much of the contest.

    For the season, senior pitcher Austin Ruble is 4-1 in five starts with a 1.84 ERA.

  • Titans run rule CAL on Monday

    Collins softball was able to piece together a complete game at the plate on Monday night, crushing visiting Christian Academy-Louisville 16-4 in six innings.

    Titans Kennedy Clark and Abby Herrick turned in massive performances at the dish, combining to make up half of Collins’ runs with four RBIs apiece.

  • Rally lets Rockets walk off vs....

    The Rocket baseball team continued its newfound winning streak against district foe Spencer County on Monday, using a five-run effort in the bottom of the seventh to cap a 6-5 comeback win while staving off a loss to the visiting Bears.

    “Our guys stayed focused on making solid contact at the plate and we never got down or thought we weren’t going to win,” Shelby County coach Devin Hicks said. “That mindset was very important to us, and Caleb [Collins] came up big in a big spot.”

  • Titans shut door on Anderson...

    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...

    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...

    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.
