  • Game time is time for the games

    SHELBYVILLE – There was a simple explanation for Collins’ volleyball win over Anderson County last Wednesday.

    “We were just outmatched tonight,” Anderson coach Ryan Brown said.

    Collins dominated in nearly every way possible to earn a 25-9, 25-17, 25-13 victory that underscored the strangle hold the Titans have had on the 30th District the last three seasons.

    Collins used a big front line to dominate play at the net and utilized strong passing and defense to sink the Lady Bearcats for the second time this season.
