    Karas and Webb ran a 38:06, holding off a pair from Eastern High School by 21 seconds to win.

    As a team, the Lady Rockets placed third out of seven schools with 44 points. Floyd Central (Ind.) won the meet.

  • Rocket soccer team drills Spencer

    The SCHS boys’ soccer team coasted to an 11-1 victory at Spencer County on Tuesday.

    The game was called with about eight minutes to play because of the 10-goal mercy rule.

    “We had about a million chances to score,” SCHS Coach B.J. Andriot said. “I thought we played really well. I told the kids going in that I didn’t want them fooling around or joking around, I wanted them to play hard just like we were playing anybody else. It’s my belief that you respect your opponent by playing hard, and I thought we did.”

  • Franklin Co. holds off Shelby

    After storming through the first game, the SHCS girls’ volleyball team struggled in a 2-1 (14-25, 25-22, 25-20) loss at Franklin County on Tuesday.

    “The girls opened up big, and I was really proud of the way  they put the first game away,” SCHS Coach Felicia Pace said.

    But the Lady Rockets (3-2) couldn’t maintain that momentum against the Lady Flyers (3-1).

  • Lady Rockets whip North Bullitt...

    The SCHS girls’ soccer team took over in the second half and coasted to a 5-1 victory at North Bullitt on Wednesday.

    “Orange did a nice job in her first start,” SCHS Coach Joe Turner said.

    North Bullitt got a goal near the end of the half to close the gap to 2-1 at the break.

  • Cornerstone drops KHSAA goal

    Cornerstone Christian Academy was scheduled to join the Kentucky High School Athletic Association in a few selected sports this season, but the school has decided not to participate.

    The Bulldogs were to join volleyball now and boys’ basketball this winter, but with a decrease in enrollment, the private school decided a move back to the Kentucky Christian Athletic Association would be best.

    “It was nice to start with a lead and finish with it,” SCHS Coach Felicia Pace said. “That’s something we’ve been working on, and something the girls needed to see that they could do. Hopefully we can learn from that.”

    The Lady Rockets (1-1) dominated Western Hills (0-2) at each position on the court, Pace said.

    The SCHS girls’ golf team got some payback against Sacred Heart on Monday.

    The Valkyries had beaten Shelby County twice this season, but the Lady Rockets topped them, 173-204, at Weissinger Hills. Although Sacred Heart didn’t bring three of its usual top four, SCHS Coach Anna Simpson said it wouldn’t have mattered.

    “I don’t think they would’ve been able to make up 31 strokes,” she said.

  • Rocket golfers top Anderson,...

    After rain shortened their match against Anderson County on Monday, the Shelby County Rockets invited the Bearcats back to Weissinger Hills Friday to complete the match.

The Rockets were grouped right behind Griffin, with Josh Kuhn next at 39, Jared Redmon at 40 and Tayler Adams at 41.
