  • Football: Rockets fare well in...

    Although the East team lost, 40-20, in Saturday’s Greater Louisville Coaches Association East vs. West All-Star Football Game at Southern, Shelby County High School was well represented.

    Kicker Matt Nakatani was 2-for-2 on extra points and forced a fumble on a kickoff, but the West recovered it. Defensive lineman Justin Hampton had three tackles and one quarterback pressure, and offensive lineman Matt Axline did not allow a sack.

  • Football: Rockets earn several...

    The SHCS football team led the way with 10 players earning spots on the All-Class 6A, District 4 Team. Male was second, with nine players, Fern Creek had seven, and Southern had two.

    The Rockets honored on offense were quarterback Branden Cresap, Jr.; wide receivers – Ben Axline, Jr., and Tavis Elzy, Jr.; offensive tackle Matt Axline, Sr.; and guard R.J. Beitz, Sr.

  • Football: SCHS All-stars

    Shelby County High School will have three players in the Greater Louisville Coaches Association All-star game this weekend.

    Offensive lineman Matt Axline, defensive lineman Justin Hampton and kicker Matt Nakatani will play for the East. The game is Saturday at 2 p.m. at Southern High School in Louisville.

  • AquaRockets take home meet

    With it’s full team back, the SCHS swim team got a taste of how good it could be, taking a combined-score victory over Boyle County and Danville on Wednesday.

    The AquaRockets were without several swimmers during a three-way meet with Woodford County and Manual this past weekend, but SCHS Coach J.P. LaVertu said Wednesday's performance showed him what his team could do.

  • EARLIER: Lady Rockets shock...

    The SCHS girls’ basketball team wasn’t picked anywhere near the top of the 8th Region in the preseason, but teams should know not to sleep on the Lady Rockets (1-1).

    They topped consensus region preseason favorite South Oldham (0-2), 50-47, in overtime Friday behind a suffocating defensive effort.

    “I told the girls that if won that game, they’d be 1-0 because the loss at Carroll County was my fault,” SCHS Coach Phillip Conder said.

  • AquaRockets host Woodford,...

    The SCHS swim team will welcome two of the state’s best teams to the Family Activity Center at 9 a.m. Saturday.

    Woodford County and Manual will hit the pool against the AquaRockets, but the meet was almost one better.

    Dunbar was originally slated to attend as well, but the Bulldogs pulled out just this week.

  • EARLIER: Carroll County, OT too...

    A 63-60 overtime loss at Carroll County on Tuesday night wasn’t the way SCHS girls’ basketball Coach Phillip Conder wanted to start his first season, but he said he saw plenty to build on.

    “I was very pleased with the way we got back in the game,” he said. “Who could be upset with that fight?”

  • 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.

  • Lady Rockets to remember Ford at...

    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.
