  • Santa finds helpers in Shelby

    Santa’s workshop is at its busiest this time of the year.

    Braving the frigid cold of the North Pole, the big jolly guy and his elves are checking their lists – twice – to make sure all the toys are built and reindeer fully trained for Santa’s annual departure to chimneys near and far.

    With all that work to do, Santa often sends his helpers on his behalf to greet the good little girls and boys across the globe and take notes on what they want for Christmas.

  • Rockcastle wins Lady Rocket Invitational

    Tournament MVP Sara Hammond's double-double led Rockcastle County to a 43-38 victory over Shelby County in the Max Performance Lady Rocket Invitational championship game. Rockcastle had beaten Shelby (3-6) by nearly 30 points earlier this month.

    Hammond, a 6-foot-2 junior, made key blocks and grabbed several rebounds down the stretch as Shelby tried to rally after Rockcastle's 6-0 run into the fourth.

    Shelby had led 24-21 going into halftime on a run of their own led by Taylor Shaw's 3-pointer and low bucket, as well as Dee Dee Davis' two free throws.
