  • VOLLEYBALL: Colonels down Rockets

    BUCKNER -- After losing most of her 2009 region semifinalist team to graduation and to the new cross-town school, Shelby County volleyball coach Felicia Pace kept her goals simple this season.

    “Our season goal was to make it to the regional tournament, so I have to say I am proud of that,” Pace said. “We reached our first goal.”

    The Rockets’ season ended Tuesday evening when they lost to host, and 18th-ranked, Oldham County, 25-7, 25-17, in the first round of the Eighth Region Tournament.

  • Oldham at SCHS: Rockets hope to...

    As he walked off the field at Southern High School, just few minutes after his team’s first victory of the season, the mind of Shelby County football coach Todd Shipley was already in motion.

    “This gives us a shot of adrenaline for next week,” he said.

    “Next week” is now tonight for Shipley and his Rockets (1-8), who host Oldham County (5-4) at 7:30 p.m.

  • Karas first, Webb second at...

    Collins’ Caterina Karas and Shelby County’s Taylor Webb finished 1-2 Saturday at the 18th annual DeSales Invitational at McNeely Lake Park in Louisville.

    Karas, the Titans' junior who sat out last week’s meet, won the 5,000-meter race in 18 minutes, 49 seconds.

    “Caterina Karas ran what I thought was her best race of the year,” Collins Coach Stephen Drawbaugh said. “She did not have anyone to push her but she still ran a fast time.”

  • Oldham 35, SCHS 19: Colonels end...

    In many ways Friday night was a microcosm of the season for the Shelby County High School football team.

     

    There were some highs and some lows, but more of the latter and not enough of the former in Oldham County’s 35-19 victory over the Rockets at Robert Doyle Stadium.

     

    Colonel Brett Leary rushed for 220 yards and four touchdowns in the first half, and Shelby County committed five turnovers in its season finale and on Senior Night.

     

  • Regional volleyball: Dragons...

    BUCKNER -- The Collins High School volleyball team got the match-up it wanted in the Eighth Region Tournament.

    Just not the result.

  • EARLIER: SCHS 36, Southern 32

    LOUISVILLE -- The tears of joy that left streaks on Quinten Cottrell’s cheeks said it all - Shelby County finally had won a football game.

    Cottrell scored three touchdowns and shook off a late fumble to help the Rockets’ defense preserve the team’s first victory of the season – 36-32 at Southern on a smoky Friday night.

  • EARLIER: Collins 34, Fern Creek...

    Fern Creek came into Friday night’s high school football game at Collins with a talented trio of seniors who are headed to the University of Louisville next year.

    However it was the Titans’ senior threesome of Brendan Cresap, Tavis Elzy and Ben Axline who stole the show in Collins’ 34-14 victory over the Tigers at Titans Stadium.

  • Shelby County gets 1st win

     

     

     

    Finally!

    The Shelby County High School football team won its first game of the season Friday night, beating host Southern 36-32.

    “It’s been a long time coming,” said senior Quinten Cottrell, who rushed for 128 yards and three touchdowns for the Rockets.

    Sophomore quarterback Zach Shipley added a touchdown pass and a TD run for Shelby County (1-8), which built a 29-12 halftime lead but had to hold on late to preserve its first victory of 2010.

  • Slaughter's pro career off...

  • Hello, Shelby County, it's...

    Hello, Shelby County, it’s nice to meet you.

    Sorry it has taken me so long to introduce myself, but you know how it is when you start a new job. It takes a little while to get adjusted to things. You spend most of your time early on just trying to keep your head above water.

    I’ve been around for about three weeks, so I’ve had a chance to meet some of you, but obviously not all of you, so let this be my formal introduction to you all.
