  • 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.

  • Collins sets rushing record in...

    Collins ran over, around, through and past Moore Friday, rolling up a school-record 403 yards rushing in a 54-14 win over the visiting Mustangs.

    The Titans (2-0) hit their stride in the second half, pouring on 33 unanswered points to turn a comfortable margin into a rout.

  • O’Hare leads Rockets in rout

    From the opening kickoff, it looked as if Friday’s contest between Shelby County and Atherton would be a competitive one.

    But appearances can be deceiving.

    The Rebels returned the opening kick to the Rockets’ 16-yard line before the drive stalled out and Atherton settled for three points.

    It would be the final time the game appeared to be evenly matched.

  • Shelby County welcomes third...

    Shelby County High School enshrined its third Hall of Fame class Saturday night in front of numerous former alumni and athletes.

    The youngest member of the 2017 class was Shelby Skoczenski (formerly Ellis), a state champion for the Rockets and school record holder in the high jump track and field event.

    “It was an honor to become a member of such an awesome cadre of folks that came before me,” she said. “Rocket athletics helped turn me into who I am, and it’s very much appreciated.”

  • Collins hammers Shelby

    Thursday’s first and only regular season meeting between the Collins and Shelby County boys’ soccer teams proved to be non-competitive from the jump.

    The Titans (2-1) scored three goals in each half to rout the Rockets (2-3-1) 6-1 at the Shelby County athletic complex.

    Senior midfielder Kevin Lanham netted a hat trick for the Titans and paved the way for an easy Collins win.

  • Rockets pick up win over Titans

    Shelby County’s girls’ golf team continued its strong start to the season with a 45-stroke win over rival Collins Thursday.

    The Rockets carded a 168 as a team, led by Grace Clark’s round of 38 en route to the victory.

    “We played solid as a team,” Shelby coach Candice Iceman said. “It is great getting to go out and play the course because we will have regionals there in a couple of weeks [at Shelbyville CC].

  • Nelson County downs Shelby, 2-0

    After a long five-game stretch of away games to begin the boys’ soccer season, Shelby County is still attempting to get a hold on its lineup changes.

    The Rockets were winded after a 2-2-1 start to the season following last week’s stretch during the Mustang Classic, and fell by a 2-0 final to Nelson County on Tuesday night.

  • Ellis commits to Tennessee

    When Shelby County catcher Matthew Ellis concludes his high school baseball career in the spring of 2018, he will have a new favorite color: Orange.

    Ellis confirmed on Monday night that he had switched his college commitment from Southern Illinois University to the University of Tennessee and will become a Volunteer in the fall of 2018.

    “I just visited a bunch of places after recommitting before last year [to SIU],” Ellis said. “I felt like Tennessee was the best place for my family and I.”

  • Collins draws Moore in home...

    After dismantling Madison Southern in its season opener at the Roy Kidd Bowl last Saturday, Collins will turn its sights to a visiting Moore football team that turned in a solid 7-4 mark in 2016.

    Leading the Mustangs defensively is four-star prospect J.J. Weaver, ranked as one of the top-10 players in Kentucky by 247 Sports.

    Weaver recorded 67 tackles as a defensive end last season, and has been be a focus for the Titans offensive line in practice all week.

  • Rockets take on Atherton

    Shelby County High School hosts its home opener tonight with a matchup against a second consecutive Louisville team in Atherton.

    The Rebels (0-1) struggled to score points on offense last week, with its offensive woes extending all the way back to last season, when it finished the season with a 3-7 overall record.

    The Rockets expect to see a Wing-T offense from Atherton, similar to the offense that district foe Spencer County has run for years.
