  • Tough weekend will test Rockets

    The SCHS boys’ basketball team isn’t wasting any time getting this season started.

    After opening the season against a solid Dunbar team on the road, the Rockets will travel to Trinity tonight and turn around for their home opener Saturday against a solid Christian Academy-Louisville squad.

    “Who made this schedule?” SCHS Coach (and schedule-maker) Mike Clark said jokingly Wednesday.

    The SCHS girls’ basketball team will have a short announcement remembering former Lady Rocket Ashley Ford followed by a moment of silence before tonight’s home game against South Oldham at 7:30.

    The girls also will wear black bands embossed with with Ford’s initials, and the team will move her jersey that has been hanging in the girls’ locker room to a lobby display.

    Ford, 20, died in a car accident Monday night.

    Coming off a runner-up finish in the KCAA State Tournament last season, the Cornerstone Christian Academy boys’ basketball team has a completely new look.

    First-year coach Darrick Briscoe steps in and has a host of new faces to work with. Eleven new players will suit up for the Bulldogs, which makes Briscoe’s job much more interesting.

    “This school has been very successful in the past, but this year’s team is young,” he said. “We don’t have any seniors, so this will be a rebuilding year for us.

    The SCHS boys’ basketball team is drawing a lot of attention as the season begins this week. The Rockets were ranked No. 15 in The Courier-Journal’s preseason coaches poll and picked to win the 8th Region. Senior Donovan Johnson was the preseason pick for 8th Region player of the year, and senior Boomer Beckley (No. 5) and freshman Darryl Hicks (No. 8) were in the region’s top 10.

    SCHS cross-country and track standout Stacey Eden placed 28th in the Foot Locker South Regional Cross Country Meet. The meet, held in Charlotte, hosts the best high school runners in the southern U.S. region. Eden finished with a personal best time of 15 minutes, 18 seconds, which also sets the SCHS 5K record.

    The meet was a redemption for Eden. After struggling with injuries and illnesses during the high school season, Eden beat all other Kentucky runners at the South Regional Meet, including two-time state champion Ryan Eaton of Greenwood.

  • Football: Rockets in final polls

    The SCHS football team’s season ended a few weeks ago, but the Rockets accomplishments weren’t forgotten.

    Shelby County ended the year ranked among the state’s top teams.

    The Courier-Journal’s Litkenhous rankings had Shelby County No. 17 in the state and No. 9 in Class 6A. In the Lexington Herald-Leader’s Dave Cantrall Rating the State final poll, the Rockets were No. 17 in the state and ranked higher than two of the two teams – Scott County and Greenwood – that were still competing.

  • 8th Region should run through...

    All five starters return, and the team already goes eight deep, so the lofty expectations of a region championship and a run at the state title come as no surprise to the SCHS boys’ basketball team.

    "We think this team can be better than the [2007-08] team [that made the state semifinals] if we work hard and work on our defense and rebounding,” senior forward Donovan Johnson said.

  • Lady Rockets flying under the...

    The SHCS girls’ basketball team enters the 2009-2010 season without much fanfare.

    After the Lady Rockets were upset by Spencer County in the first round of last year's 30th District Tournament, not much is expected from them – outside of their locker room.

    Teams talking title

    The Rockets have won two 8th Region Titles since 2005, and they are the prohibitive favorites to take their third title this year. With the full starting five and nearly the entire bench returning, it's Shelby County's region to lose.

    However, Anderson County, North Oldham, Simon Kenton and South Oldham will challenge.
