  • Brown misses out on PGA card

    Brandon Brown's trip to the third and final round of PGA Tour Qualifying School didn't end the way the Shelby native had hoped.

    Brown finished tied for 148th out of 161 golfers in the six-round event that finished Dec. 8 in La Quinta, Calif.

    The top 25 players earned their PGA Tour card to compete in a full season on the PGA next year. The next 50 earned a full season spot on the Nationwide Tour.

  • A look at the top of the girls' 8th Region

    Many of the usual suspects will be at or near the top of the region again this year. Simon Kenton is the early favorite, but several other teams will be waiting to knock them off.

    The Lady Pioneers went 26-9 last season on the way to winning the 8th Region Tournament. They also return the region's top-rated player in 5-5 guard Chelsea Tolliver who averaged 17 points a game. However, the biggest return may be from 5-10 Lindsey Figgins who returns from a knee injury.

  • Lady Rockets slip past Spencer

    Haleigh LeCompte doesn’t like shooting dead on from the middle, and with less than 3 seconds to go, she was just 3 of 13 from the field. But none of that mattered.

    LeCompte grabbed the lobbed inbounds pass from Hannah Stucker after pulling away from a Spencer defender and buried her shot from the middle of the lane to give the Lady Rockets (6-6) a 51-50 victory over Spencer County (8-6) Monday.

  • SCHS volleyball falls in region semis

    Shelby County hoped to get some revenge when it faced Oldham County in the semifinals of the 8th Region Volleyball Tournament on Wednesday at Bullitt East, but the Colonels had a different idea.

    The Rockets hung close in the first game before, falling, 25-18, but Oldham County steamrolled Shelby, 25-6, in the second to win the match 2-0.

    "Oldham was our season opener this year, and they were able to eek out a victory [25-18, 25-21], so we were looking forward to a possible revenge match," SCHS Coach Felicia Pace said.

  • Holiday season gets true start this week

    It's the most wonderful time of the year.

    That's not just for the Christmas song, but also for the start of basketball season.

    Colleges are under way, and as of Monday, high schools across the Commonwealth are starting to play games.

    Yes, the holiday season officially starts with Thanksgiving, but for me it really begins around the middle of November, when meaningful games start tipping off.

  • Rockets struggle, fall at Boyle County

    At just 2-9 going into Tuesday's game, Boyle County didn't look like a team that would cause the Rockets much of a problem.

    However, a quick look at the beginning of the seasons says a lot.

    Boyle County's football team, which has several basketball players on it, advanced to the 4A State Championship game, and many of those players are just now hitting their basketball strides.

  • EARLIER: Jailed minister admits he is HIV positive

    A minister of a Shelbyville church who was arraigned Tuesday on charges of sodomy and sexual abuse of a juvenile confessed to having unprotected sex with a 15-year-old while knowing that he was HIV positive.

     

    In addition to third-degree sodomy, James H. Bell, 47, pastor of Refuge Temple Church of God in Christ, has been charged with second-degree sexual abuse and first-degree wanton endangerment, which could be in conjunction with the HIV situation.

     

  • Rockets go for two in a row

    The SCHS football team will try to put back-to-back victories together tonight after finally getting their first last week.

    The Rockets (1-8) will face Oldham County (7-2) in the annual grudge match, but this year the Colonels seemingly have the upper hand.

    After starting the year 1-2, Oldham County has reeled off six consecutive victories by an average of 29.3 points. In its seven victories Oldham has averaged 48 points, but in its two losses, against St. Xavier and Madison Central, the Colonels scored just six points.
