  • Big numbers fill void for AquaRockets

    The AquaRockets have had the quality but not the quantity to match up with some of the region's bigger teams. But that could change this year.

    "We are just blessed this year with about 60 kids," SCHS Coach Sheron Ruble said. "We've had an influx of kids wanting to cross train between sports, and several cross-country runners have come out because they want to eventually do triathlons."

  • SCHS girls fall to Oldham

    Oldham then beat South Oldham, 2-1, Wednesday for the district title.

    The Rockets started strong in the semifinals but couldn't capitalize on a few chances early.

    "We played really, really well for the first 24 minutes," Coach Joe Turner said. "We were settled down, played smart and had three or four shots. But we just couldn't keep that momentum."

  • EARLIER: Shelburne steps down from commission

    After winning her seat on the Simpsonville City Commission by one vote, Dottie Shelburne has decided to step down from office.

    Shelburne beat out fellow incumbent Cary Vowels 339 to 340 votes this past November in an election that was tainted when non-city residents voted in the race.

    Shelburne said she has informed the commission of her decision to step down.

    But her resignation has some string attached.

    She told the commission that she would only step down if they promised her that they would appoint Cary Vowels to her seat.

    Stacey Eden decided it was up to him.

    After staying with the pack through the first 2 miles, Eden said the pace was much slower than he expected, so it was time to take off.

    “I thought the pack would go out a lot faster, but when we started to get near the two-mile mark it never picked up. So, I thought if I wanted to get a good time I had to go.”

    And go he did.

  • Anderson holds off Rockets

    Anderson County’s C.J. Penny hit two free throws with less than 5 seconds remaining to seal a 46-42 victory over the Rockets Saturday.

    But SCHS Coach Mike Clark left the game knowing his team could’ve played better.

    “We really feel like we’re good enough to beat anybody we play, and after that game I felt like we should’ve won,” he said. “I think we let Anderson County off the hook.”
