  • Stucker will be a shortstop at...

    The one guarantee for Hannah Stucker as she continues her softball career in college is the positive impact she’ll have on future teammates and coaches.

    “She’s an inspiration [with her] heart and soul and hustle,” Rocket softball coach Kelly Cable said. “You always hope as a coach you’re able to inspire one of your athletes. The more I’ve watched this kid mature and grow through the years, she’s inspired me.”

  • Boys track looks to win region

    When the boys track team arrives at Fern Creek for the 8th Region Championships Wednesday, they won't only be looking to improve on last season's fourth-place finish. No, they'll be trying to win the meet, and the possibility is hardly a long shot.

    "I feel pretty good as far as an overall team," Coach George Cottrell said. "This is the first time since I've been doing track here [10 years] that we have a legitimate shot to win the region.

    "This year we've had a lot of things come together."

    FRANKFORT – Shelby County's Antonio Soler Jiminez settled into a patient game just in time to nick a formidable Andrew Barrett of Bullitt East, 6-2, 6-3, Wednesday in the semifinals of the 8th Region Tennis Tournament at Franklin County High School.

    “I thought he didn’t play very well. He’d be the first to tell you,” Coach Jerry Buchert said. “But he won. It’s a tribute to his game.”

  • EARLIER: Young softball team...

    Many of the SCHS softball team's early losses had to do with its youth.

    The Rockets have six upperclassmen, but a couple key positions (like pitcher and designated hitter) have been filled by sophomores and freshmen.

    So it took a while for Shelby (16-13, 2-2) to gel as a team, to gain confidence individually.

  • EARLIER: Top-seeded Rockets...

    Shelby County's 7-2 defeat by St. Xavier on April 22 may seem like just another loss in a 20-10 season, but that game marked a turning point for the Rockets.

    Since then, Shelby has gone on an 8-1 run in which it has outscored its opponents, 79-23, and improved its batting average to .331 and its on-base percentage to .432.

    The changes have put the Rockets just where they'd like to be going into the 30th District Tournament on Monday.
