  • Flyers roll past Rockets at roughed up Weissinger

    The Shelby County High School boys’ golf team welcomed Franklin County to Weissinger Golf Course on Monday afternoon, but the Rockets home course wasn’t very hospitable.

    Facing tough fall conditions, Shelby County fell 152-191 to the visiting Flyers.

    “My thoughts on the match is that we took a step back today,” SCHS coach Casey Page said. “But we dealt with harsh conditions. Weissinger had just aerated the greens which makes them extremely tough to putt on, which is one of our strengths.”

    Theresa M. Augustine, a former assistant administrator and firefighter who was indicted in February 2015 on theft-related charges, will be sentenced in Shelby Circuit Court today.

    Augustine pleaded guilty in July to the original charges – theft by unlawful taking $10,000 or more, but less than $100,000 – as well as abuse of public trust in connection with that amount.

    Both charges are Class C felonies, which carry a prison sentence of 5 to 10 years each.

  • Rockets look to defeat North Bullitt

    Coming off of decisive victories over Oldham and Grayson counties, the Shelby County Rockets will look to win a third straight against North Bullitt tonight at Robert Doyle Stadium.

    The highlight of the last two wins for the Rockets has been a much-improved defensive front. After allowing Garrard County to rush for more than 400 yards in the season opener, Shelby’s front-seven has buckled down and ground out its opponents.

    “We’re concentrated on playing assignment football,” Rockets coach Todd Shipley said.

    The Titans took a three-match winning streak on the road to Louisville on Wednesday to take on Kentucky Country Day where a tight contest turned into a 2-1 win for the Titans.
