  • Shelby softball wins two

    The good thing for the Shelby County High School softball team was they were able to post some big scoring innings, the bad thing was there were not enough of those innings, as the Rockets posted a 1-2 record in the Charger Classic at Jeffersontown.

    “We are doing a better job at stringing hits together and pushing runs across the plate,” Shelby County coach Kelly Cable said.

    The Rockets’ lone win came 6-2 over Southern thanks to a six-run third inning.

    “It seems like we have been doing that here lately,” Collins coach Roy Bailey said. “We have a bad inning or two and can’t get back from it.”
