  • EARLIER: Axline 'doing well...

    Shelby County football player Ben Axline is doing well today after a frightening moment in the Rockets’ season-opening loss to Bryan Station, 38-26, at Lexington on Friday night.

  • Rockets stay unbeaten

    The SCHS boys’ golf team kept its match-record perfect with a 166-175 victory over Sayre at Picadome Golf Course in Lexington.

    Josh Griffin, the Rockets’ No. 1 player, continued his hot streak, taking medalist honors for the fifth consecutive match.

    Griffin finished with a 1-over-par 36 in a nine-hole match. Rounding out the Rockets’ top six were Josh Kuhn and Tayler Adams with 43s, Turner Mayton with a 44 and Jared Redmon and Brandon Sanner with 45s.

  • Working to be elite

    Shirt soaked with sweat and gasping for breath, Branden Cresap reached for a small table, a table he would use to lift himself up and down, some on his right knee and some on his surgically rebuilt left.

  • 12-year-old swimmer making a...

    At 7:30 in the morning most seventh-graders are still hours away from even dreaming about waking up. Then there's Sam Ruble, who at that early hour is in the swimming pool training like it's his job. And this job really pays.

    Ruble's hard work has earned him one of the seven spots across the state for the Southern Zone Swim Team that will splash into competition Wednesday and represent the Commonwealth at this year's 3-day USA Swimming Southern Zone Meet in Orlando.

    Ruble, 12, has been training for competition since around the time he could say the word.

  • Rockets top Anderson

    The SCHS boys’ soccer team traveled to Anderson County on Thursday and topped the Bearcats, 2-0.

    Matthew Huff scored in the first half to give Shelby a 1-0 lead.

    The Rockets (3-1-1) controlled the first half but came away with just one goal despite having several opportunities against Anderson (3-2).

    Brandon Shuck added a second-half goal off a corner kick to give Shelby some breathing room.

  • Economy squeezing sports at park

    Companies and individuals tightening their belts to deal with tough economic times are putting the squeeze on the athletic programs at Clear Creek Park.

    Shelbyville/Shelby County Parks and Recreation Director Clay Cottongim said fewer individuals and businesses are stepping up to the plate this year to help youth soccer, baseball, basketball and football programs. The park, for example has signups for 40 soccer teams but sponsors for only 14 of them. Youth basketball had 45 teams this winter, and seven of those teams were without sponsors.

  • EARLIER: Smash-n-Dash

    Since the SCHS football team moved to the Spread offense in 2006, the Rockets have had just seven 100 yard rushing games.

    But in the season opener last week, SCHS had two backs – Quinten Cottrell and Edwin Thomas – within a whisker of 100 yards, with 96 and 93, respectively.

    Welcome to the Smash-n-Dash Show.
