The SCHS baseball team put up a strong fight, but fell to defending 8th Region champion Anderson County 8-5 Wednesday in the championship game at the SCHS Athletic Complex.

The Rockets were trailing 8-3 in the bottom of the seventh, but loaded the bases with no outs. Jared Clarkson came up with an RBI single, and John Hunter picked up an RBI after being hit by a pitch. But the Rockets couldn’t over the hump. Anderson County beat Shelby three times this season.
