    The 2000 SCHS girls' basketball team that finished the season as state runners-up will be honored before tonight's Lady Rockets' game against Anderson County.

    The 2000 squad beat Scott County, 72-51, to claim the 8th Region crown. In the Sweet 16, the girls topped Shelby Valley, 53-51, in the opening round and then beat Presentation, 66-54, in the quarterfinals. The Lady Rockets exacted some revenge with a 52-50 victory over Lexington Catholic in the semifinals.

  • Lady Rockets fall to visiting...

    Sunk by poor shooting and inconsistent defense, the Lady Rockets (1-5) lost to visiting Anderson County 61-46 Friday night.

    Shelby County shot 14 percent from the field in the first half, but improved to 52 percent in the second half by driving more to the basket.

    The Lady Bearcats (4-0) jumped to a 24-9 lead in the first half, and Shelby County never got closer than 10 points through the second half.

  • Lady Bulldogs turn up the &...

    The Cornerstone Christian Academy girls' basketball team has finally found their way during a 56-36 win over Christian Academy-Lawrenceburg Saturday.

    After switching full time to man-to-man defense, the Lady Bulldogs are hitting stride.

    Trailing 26-23 at halftime, the Lady Bulldogs came out and shut Lawrenceburg down in the second half, allowing just 10 second half points, and holding Lawrenceburg scoreless for an eight minute stretch over the third and fourth quarters.

  • Rockets hammer Grant County, 85-...

    The SCHS boys’ basketball team used a huge third quarter to whip visiting Grant County, 85-55, Tuesday.

    The Rockets (4-1) turned an 11-point halftime lead into a laugher with a hot third. Shelby outscored Grant County (2-3), 31-11, and coasted through the fourth quarter.

    “Our pressure defense really started to wear them down, and we were just on fire, scoring 31 points,” SCHS Coach Mike Clark said.

  • Football: 2 Rockets earn All-...

    After earning 10 all-district team spots, the Rockets had two members gain attention with The Associated Press All-State Team. Offensive lineman Matt Axline and kicker Matt Nakatani both received honorable mention spots. They were two of only nine Louisville-area players to receive votes for the first or second teams and honorable mention.

  • Girls come up short at Dunbar

    The SCHS girls’ basketball team tried to rally late in the game at Dunbar Tuesday, but the Lady Rockets came up short, 85-70.

    Dunbar (6-2) slowly pulled away throughout the first half and pushed the lead to 22 in the third quarter before Shelby County started to claw back in to the game.

    The Lady Rockets cut the lead to 13 but could get no closer.

    Although the loss dropped Shelby to 1-4 on the season, SCHS Coach Phillip Conder isn’t discouraged.

  • 2 sets of Lady Rockets collide...

    The Lady Rockets will post a victory this weekend, but the question is which group it will be.

    Rockcastle County, also the Lady Rockets, will face Shelby County at 2 p.m. Saturday at the Garrard County Classic.

    And a shared nickname is not the only similarity between the two.
