 Shaw, Beckley Johnson

play in all-star game  

Some of Shelby County High School's best young athletes took the court at Bellarmine University Saturday in the Kentucky High School Coaches Association East/West Junior All-Star basketball game.

Wearing an East jersey instead of her regular Rockets jerseys, Taylor Shaw put up three points in the girls' game, which was won by the West, 71-51.

The game was tied after one quarter, but the East was outscored, 23-7, in the second quarter and never caught up from there.

In the boys' game, Shelby County was well represented by Donovan Johnson and Boomer Beckley. Johnson's five points and Beckley's two contributed to the East's 118-106 victory.

The East was down by seven at halftime, but an impressive, 40-point third quarter gave it a comfortable lead.
