  • 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.

  • Eden repeats as region champ

    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.

  • Shelby native has shot at PGA Tour card

    Brandon Brown isn't so excited for Thanksgiving Day this year, but forgive him if his mind is wandering.

    Brown is more focused on the week after the holiday, particularly Dec. 3-8, when he'll head out to La Quinta, Calif., to shoot for his dream - a PGA Tour card.

  • 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.”

  • Rockets heading to Madison Central

    After last Friday's showing at Eastern, SCHS Coach Todd Shipley is looking for a better effort at district foe Madison Central tonight at 7:30.

    "We have to be better than last week," he said. "We need to get off blocks and make tackles."

    This week won't be an easy task for the Rockets (0-7, 0-2). In Shelby's last chance to win a district game, the Indians (6-1, 1-1) will feature a potent running attack with two explosive runners.

  • Sharks bursting onto state, national scene

    The Shelby Sharks are off to a hot start in the winter short-course season.

    The team already has one swimmer qualified for the Southern Sectional. Amanda Skinner hit the qualifying mark for the 200-meter breaststroke at the Excel Meet of Champions in Brentwood, Tenn., this past weekend.

    Sharks Coach Jeremiah Heath also thinks his team can have more swimmers qualify for meet.

  • A dream come true

    Since he was a little boy going to watch the University of Louisville baseball team, Jarred Clarkson says he has known he wanted to be a Cardinal.

    On Wednesday he made that dream come true, signing his National Letter of Intent to play for U of L next year.

    “It’s a great feeling, to now have the opportunity to wear that uniform is extraordinary,” Clarkson said after his signing ceremony at SCHS.

    Oddly enough, it was the University of Kentucky that helped Clarkson know his decision was right.

  • Rockets to face Oldham for third time

    SCHS Coach B.J. Andriot wasn't happy with his team's play against Oldham County in the 16th District title game last week, a 2-0 loss. But Andriot knows his team will be better when it meets host Oldham County at 7 p.m. today in the 8th Region Tournament championship.

    "The deal this time is lose, and you go home," he said. "I know these guys don't want to go home, so they'll be ready. This team, when they play with the intensity they had [Monday] against CAL, can hang with anybody."

  • SCHS sweeps Woodford County meet

     

    The Shelby County boys’ and girls’ cross-country teams swept the first-place honors at Saturday’s Woodford County Invitational in Versailles.

    Both the Rockets and Lady Rockets took a weekend off the previous week, gaining a chance to train hard as the season winds down.

    It appeared to pay off for both teams, as Shelby County had several runners at the top of the race.
