  • A big horse racing Band-Aid

    Go to ChurchillDowns.com, and you will get a chance to win a box for Derby 136.

    Of course, first you have to let officials know if you would like to see night racing as a permanent fixture.

    “Would you like to see Churchill Downs install permanent lights and conduct night racing as a part of our regular meet schedule?” is how it reads on the Web site.

    Before I tell you my thoughts, I’ll let you know that I attended Downs After Dark last week, luckily after all the bugs out were removed.

  • Lady Rockets earn tie with Oldham

    The SCHS girls’ soccer team played Oldham County to a 1-1 tie at home Wednesday, the Lady Rockets’ best result this decade against the powerhouse Lady Colonels (4-4-1, No. 24).

    “I could not be happier with our effort and energy tonight [Wednesday],” SCHS Coach Joe Turner said. “For most of the game we were the aggressors, and we put an enormous amount of pressure on Oldham. I believe our players really came of age.”

  • EARLIER: Rockets drill North...

    Another slow start put the Rockets behind, but a strong finish Friday gave the SCHS football team its first victory of the season, 42-18 over visiting North Hardin.

    Trailing, 18-14, at the half, the Rockets (1-1) came out and dominated the second half, outscoring North Hardin (2-1), 28-0, and controlling both sides of the ball.

  • Soccer: Former Rocket tabbed All...

    Former SCHS All-district and All-region soccer player Bradley Shuck was named to the Mafiaoza’s Invitational All-tournament team for Belmont University.

    Shuck, a freshman for the Bruins, was chosen for his strong play at the center back position.

    Belmont lost 4-1 to Marshall and 2-1 to Oral Roberts in the tournament, and is 0-2 in regular season play.

  • Golf: Rockets close out...

    The SCHS boys’ golf team ended the Central Kentucky Conference regular season with a 163-215 victory in a road match against Frankfort High.

    Josh Griffin’s 37 earned him his sixth medalist honor in the team’s seven conference matches this year, setting the CKC record. The Rockets also tied the CKC record with a 7-0 mark in the Western Division.

    Rounding out the varsity scores were Jared Redmon and Tyler Adams with 41s and eighth-grader Brandon Sanner with a 44 in his first varsity match.

  • Soccer: Lady Rockets hammer...

    Despite a slow start the SCHS girls’ soccer team hammered host Henry County, 9-0, Thursday.

    The Lady Rockets (5-1) got two goals from Alex Patterson, two assists from Callie Greiner and a goal from Maggie Goetzinger in the first half, but Coach Joe Turner wasn’t pleased with the team’s play early on.

    “The first half was a slow process,” he said. “We played very flat from the beginning.”

    The second half, however, was a different story. The girls stormed out of the gate and ended Henry County’s (0-4) chances early on.

  • Cross Country: Beat up Lady...

    Despite being down two runners and have several banged up girls competing, the SCHS girls’ cross-country team had a strong showing Saturday at the SCHS Invitational at East Middle School.

    Taylor Webb played 12th out of 125 runners with a time of 20:49 to lead Shelby County to a 10th-place finish out of 16 teams.

    “Taylor ran a very fine race in a quality field,” Coach Brian Crumbo said. “She ran faster [on Shelby’s hilly course] than on the flat course at the Tiger Run [20:54], so that is big plus.”

  • Cross Country: Depleted Rockets...

    Running without four of the team's top seven, the SCHS boys' cross-country team placed ninth out of 17 teams Saturday in the Shelby County Invitational at East Middle School.

    "You always hope to do well in your home meet, but it just wasn't going to happen for us this time," SCHS Coach Randall McDowell said.

    Though he said he knew challenging two-time meet champion Butler and Butler’s Darius Berry, the individual winner, would be nearly impossible, McDowell said he was hoping for better results.
