    For the first time all season the Shelby County girls’ golf team will be at full strength Saturday.

    Rockets senior Shannon Harover, the team’s No. 2 player the past two years, will make her 2011 debut in the Bullitt East Invitational, which begins at 7:30 a.m. at Heritage Hill Golf Club in Shepherdsville.

    “He makes the engine go on offense,” Shipley, the Shelby County football coach, said.
