  • Little guy to big man

    Austen Anderson has grown up a lot in his four seasons with the Shelby County baseball program.

    Both in his frame and his game.

    Four years ago Anderson entered the Rockets' program as a pint-sized freshman.

    "I came in about five-(foot-)one, maybe ninety-five pounds – I was really, really small," Anderson recently recalled.

    Some three years later Anderson has grown up (now around 5-10, 150) and grown into one of the vital members of the team, as the Rockets’ starting center fielder and captain.

  • Schreiner draws big-school eyes

    Shelby County junior Eric Schreiner’s performance in the 13th East-West Roundball Basketball Classic back in April has earned him some attention from some big-time colleges.

    Rockets Coach Rick Parsons said he has received calls from West Virginia, Illinois and Northwestern asking about the 6-foot sharp-shooting guard, who hit 18 of 22 3-pointers in three games over the two-day tournament in Louisville on his way to being named to the 10-member all-tournament team.

    Northwestern, in fact, will come in town to see Schreiner on Tuesday morning.

  • EARLIER: The man in Court’s corner

    LOUISVILLE – Jinks Fires is more than just the trainer for the horse Shelbyville resident Jon Court will ride in the 137th Kentucky Derby.

    He's also his friend.

    And his father-in-law, too.

    "Jon used to ride for me before he married my daughter [Krystal]. We've had a lot of wins together over the years," Fires said recently, before joking. "We've remained friends, even though he married my daughter.”
