  • SCHS equals opening score

    The Shelby County girls’ golf team equaled its score from its first invitational of the season in its second.

    The Rockets carded a collective 428 Wednesday in the Owen County Invitational at Perry Park County Club to match the score they put up in Monday’s Henry County Invitational. 

    Sophomore Jordan Webb and freshman Madison Thomas led Shelby, and tied for eighth-place, with 5-over-par 77s.

    “They both played really well,” Coach Anna Simpson said.

  • Kessinger, Sell swim well at...

    Shelby Sharks Collin Kessinger and Sydney Sell did well this past weekend for the Kentucky team in the Southern Zone Age Group Swimming Championships in Cary, N.C.

    Kessinger won the 15-18-year-old 200-meter breaststroke (2 minutes, 41.74 seconds), and Sell won the Girls 13-14 200 backstroke (2:20.36).

    “Both girls improved their times, setting new team records in both events,” Sharks Coach Jeremiah Heath said.  

  • This season could be different...

    This volleyball season, maybe even more so than last year, will be unlike any Felicia Pace has had at Shelby County.

    “This will be the smallest and youngest team that I have coached at SC,” the Rockets’ coach said.

    That on the heels of a season in which post “split” Shelby County went 13-15 and was swept by Oldham County in the first round of the 8th Region Tournament.

    The Rockets graduated four seniors from that team and return only two seniors – Caty Hawkins and Chelsey Howell.

  • It's Miller time at Lindsey...

    Powell Miller has been back home in Kentucky for a couple of months.

    But it should really hit home today when football players report to Lindsey Wilson College, where the 2004 Shelby County graduate is the first-year running backs coach for the NAIA school.

    After a couple of college coaching stints outside the state, Miller, a former Rockets quarterback, has returned to his Bluegrass roots.

    “My wife [Ashley] and I are very happy to be back in Kentucky,” Miller said Sunday evening. 

  • Brandon Brown runs away with...

    Brandon Brown has been the hottest golfer on the NGA/Hooters Pro Golf Tour this season.

    This week he had to beat the heat, as well as two sizzling performances by Blake Watts, to win the 2011 PowerBilt Kentucky Open by four strokes.

    Brown, a Shelbyville resident, fired a 5-under-par 67 in Thursday’s final round at Persimmon Ridge Golf Club to hold off Watts, who shot a course-record 65 for the second time in three days.

  • Brandon Brown leads by 6 shots...

    Shelbyville's Brandon Brown leads by six shots heading into the final round of the 2011 PowerBilt Kentucky Open. 

    Brown, last year's runner-up in the event, followed up his first-round 67 with a second-round 69 Wednesday to give him an 8-under-par 136 at Persimmon Ridge Golf Club. He leads first-round leader Blake Watts of New Albany and Louisville's Jesse Massie by six strokes going into Thursday's final round. All three of those players will tee off at 11:27 a.m. 

  • Titans tie for 10th-place

    It may not have been the start that the Collins boys’ golf team had wanted, but it was solid enough nonetheless against some of the state’s top teams.

    The Titans tied for 10th-place in the 13th annual, two-day, Flyer Classic. Collins carded a team score of a 25-over-par 305 (which also tied it for 10th) in Monday’s first round at Juniper Hills Golf Course in Frankfort. Then followed that up with a second day 30-over-par 318 at Marriott Griffin Gate Resort & Spa in Lexington.

  • Rockets finish seventh

    The Shelby County girls’ golf team started this season just like it ended last season, and Coach Anna Simpson was anything but disappointed.

    The Rockets, who finished seventh in the State Tournament last year, came in seventh in Monday’s Henry County Invitational at Henry County Country Club.

  • Shelby shows early improvement

    The Shelby County boys’ golf team showed vast improvement in its 2011 season-opening tournament.

    In the inaugural Rocket Invitational at Weissinger Hills the Rockets shot a collective 357 – a very pleasing score to Shelby County Coach Matt Redmon.

    “It’s about a 50-stroke improvement from the first tournament last year,” Redmon said. “But even though we improved so much we didn’t show how much improvement we’ve had [in practice]. We’re capable of shooting 20 shots better.”

  • Two KHSAA state championship...

    Three of the Kentucky High School Athletic Association’s state championship events will have new homes starting with the 2011-12 school year.
