    The Shelby County softball team’s season opener had hot start but a cool conclusion Monday as host North Oldham rallied for a 6-5 victory in Goshen.

    The Rockets, who went 5-19 last season, started off well, scoring once in the first inning and twice in the second and third frames to build a 5-2 lead.

    “We couldn’t find a run after that,” said Shelby County Coach Kelly Cable, whose team had all five of its hits in the first 3 1/3 innings. 

  • Rockets’ boys revved for a run at a state title

    “I think it looks pretty bright for us this year,” said Edwards, 24, an assistant coach last season who takes over for the retired George Cottrell.

    The Rockets opened their outdoor season Tuesday at their own all-comers meet.
