  • Shelby faces off with Meade tonight

    In what is expected to be a water-logged, slugfest of a ground game, Shelby County will welcome 6A Meade County to Robert Doyle Stadium tonight at 7:30.

    Both teams run a version of the triple option offense, with the Green Wave (1-1) opting for a Wing-T rushing attack that was led by several different rushers last season.

    Senior running back Zach Babb led the pack for Meade in 2016, with 663 yards and seven touchdowns last season.

    Last week in the 48-0 win over Anderson County, Babb compiled a team-leading 196 yards on the ground in the victory.

    While Spencer County may have fought and clawed to stay in the 30th District volleyball match against Shelby County on Tuesday night, the Rockets showed it had the superior team.

    The Rockets (6-4) used its depth and solid net play to defeat the Bears (6-4), as Shelby moved to 1-0 in district play in the process.

    “[The match] was fun to say the least,” Rockets coach Kristen Kapp said. “The girls played relaxed and got the job done. I tried not to apply too much pressure to win, instead, I told them to play point by point.”

    The Amazons (2-3) had no answer for Collins on offense or defense, as the Titans cruised to its third win of the season.

  • Rockets continue growing on links

    In what was described as a ‘frustrating’ day on the course by Shelby County coach Casey Page, the Rockets took a tough 21-stroke loss to Anderson County at Weissinger Hills Golf Course on Tuesday.

    Although SCHS was led by freshman Zach Houchin’s nine-hole round of 34, the home team could not find a way to outplay its opponent.
