  • 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.

  • Bulldogs all new, starting with...

    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.

  • Basketball: Rockets getting...

    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.

  • Cross country: Eden competes in...

    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.
