  • Rockets show progress, but...

    HODGENVILLE – The Shelby County football team took some big steps toward putting 2010 behind it Friday night.

    Unfortunately for the Rockets, for nearly every five steps forward, they took one back.

    Shelby County, which led LaRue County, 17-7, late in the second quarter, was plagued by flags and fumbles as the Hawks rallied for a 27-24 victory.

    The Rockets, who ran 49 plays on offense, were penalized 11 times (including 10 on offense) and had four fumbles – including one lost one that proved crucial – in their season-opener. 

  • No clash of the Titans this time

    DANVILLE – Last week’s practices may not have made the Collins football team perfect on Saturday night.

    But they made the Titans pretty close, as evidenced by their 56-13 mauling of Mercer County – in a game that never lived up to being a clash of the Titans – in the Stuart Powell Bowl at Boyle County. 

    “We had a great week of practice, and we got paid today,” senior receiver/defensive end Jalen Spalding said Saturday.

  • SCHS girls finish 2nd in Bullitt...

    The Shelby County girls’ golf team placed second at the Bullitt East Lady Chargers Bluegrass Invitational on Saturday.

    The Rockets carded a collective 333, led by sophomore Jordan Webb and freshman Madison Thomas, at Heritage Hill Golf Club near Shepherdsville. Sacred Heart won the invitational with a 312, and 5th Region rival Henry County was fourth with a 345.

    Webb tied for third-place overall with a 1-over-par 73, while Thomas tied for fifth with a 75. Also for the Rockets, seventh-grader Lilly Young shot a 92.

  • Robinson’s 2 assists lead steady...

    Sarah Robinson had an uneasy feeling in her stomach Monday evening.

    “I had the butterflies bad,” the Collins senior said. “I’ve never had the pre-game jitters.”

    But Robinson had never played a girls’ soccer match against Shelby County. However the Titans forward, who missed the team’s inaugural season in 2010 with a knee injury, made up for lost time.

  • Collins clobbers Mercer County...

    The Collins football team erased any lingering effects, or doubts, from last week’s loss to Meade County on Saturday evening.

    That’s when Collins mauled Mercer County 56-13, in a game that never lived up to being a clash of the Titans, in the Stuart Powell Bowl at Boyle County.

    Senior running back Darian Dugle ran for two touchdowns, while senior Michael Brooks rushed for one TD and passed for another for Collins, which scored the first 28 points of the game and never looked back.

  • Rockets fall 27-24 at LaRue...

    Fumbles and flags did in the Shelby County football team in its season-opener Friday night.

    The Rockets were plagued by both, but still hung tough before falling to host LaRue County 27-24 Friday night in Hodgenville.

  • Harover returns for SCHS

    For the first time all season the Shelby County girls’ golf team will be at full strength Saturday.

    Rockets senior Shannon Harover, the team’s No. 2 player the past two years, will make her 2011 debut in the Bullitt East Invitational, which begins at 7:30 a.m. at Heritage Hill Golf Club in Shepherdsville.

    Harover has missed the first few weeks of the season because of a kneecap injury.

  • First up, Rockets will try to...

    Todd Shipley’s No. 1 goal for tonight is to stop LaRue County’s No. 1 one option.

    Hawks senior fullback Drew Newberry rushed 22 times for 129 yards and his team’s only touchdown in LaRue’s season-opening, 26-7 loss to North Bullitt last Saturday.

    “He makes the engine go on offense,” Shipley, the Shelby County football coach, said.

  • They’re off and running toward...

    The high school cross-country season kicks off with Saturday’s Tiger Run at Old River Road Country Club in Louisville, and some county teams, and individuals, could have some big seasons.

    Here is a quick look at the squads from both schools:
