  • Lady Rockets begin region play Monday

    After upsetting Anderson County in the 30th District Championship game, the Shelby County softball team will enter Monday's 8th Region Tournament with back-to-back victories.

    "Hopefully that emotional win can carry over in a positive way," SCHS Coach Kelly Cable said. "I hope we can ride that wave."

  • Rockets whip Grant in region opener

    The SCHS baseball team jumped out quickly, and finished Grant County (10-16) off early in a 15-5 six inning win in the 8th Region opener Monday.

    Fighting off rain, the Rockets (18-12) got ahead 2-0 in the top of the first when Jared Clarkson ripped a two-run homer that also scored Nick Hamblen.

    That was just the start of the day for Clarkson. He also had a two-run single and an RBI double. The double pushed the Rockets’ last run across.

    Ben Glassner then relieved starter Jordan Bailey and pitched a perfect three-strikeout sixth to end the game.

  • EMS goal: 'To help alleviate pain and suffering'

    The EMTs and paramedics were sitting on kitchen chairs and couches trying to get through an accreditation meeting when the first call came in.

It's not a run the EMS usually makes, but given the frailty of the man, Director Steve Wortham gave Janet Morris the go-ahead to tell the Sheriff's Office they would make the run.
