    North Hardin's Lydia Gumm is 1-under through 14, and Shelby County's Candice Wiley is tied for third at 3-over through with two more holes to play.

    Both teams had solid results but finished a little lower than they expected.

  • Lady Rockets finish round, poised to advance

    The top 11 teams make the cut. Shelby County is currently at No. 6 on the board, but is second among teams that have finished their rounds.

    The KHSAA decided to have the second round tee off today at 1:30 p.m. CDT, instead of calling the tournament after 18 holes as had been expected.

  • SCHS falls, 4-0, to No. 17 Anderson - Girls loose focus on senior night

    SCHS Coach Joe Turner said he's not sure why, but every time his girls' soccer team faces a talented squad its focus is solely on defense.

    "We have trouble against talented and skilled teams because they [his players] just want to fall back and play defense," he said. "We just pack in the back and don't get out on offense at all."

    That's exactly what happened on Monday as the Rockets (9-7-1) fell 4-0 to visiting Anderson County (15-2-1, ranked No. 17 in the state).

    Michaela Manley was the only Lady Rocket on the course when the delay started; she had hit one shot on her opening round.

  • Judge reverses court gun ban

    Every once in a while, a judge will reconsider his opinion.

    Previously, only Sheriff's deputies could carry weapons in his court.

    Myles said he did this for the safety of everyone in the courtroom.

    Local law enforcement disagreed.
