  • Cross country: Lady Rockets...

    The SCHS girls’ cross-country team placed 22nd out of 25 teams at the Greater Louisville Classic on Saturday at E.P. “Tom” Sawyer Park.

    Running without their top runner, Caterina Karas, and two more of their usual top five, the girls had just two place in the top half of the 187 individual runners.

  • Offensive woes slowing Lady...

    The SCHS girls’ soccer team has hit a rough patch.

    After winning six of their first seven, the girls are 1-3-1 over the last five games, and Coach Joe Turner seems to be at a loss.

    “We just can't seem to get our act together,” he said. “We seem to be struggling with the concept of team. We have a lot of talented players, but we just won't play together.”

    Most of the team’s recent struggles have come on the offensive end. The Lady Rockets had 28 shots Monday against Western Hills but wound up with just a 3-0 victory.

  • EARLIER: Basketball star Hicks...

    Standout basketball player Darryl Hicks appears headed back to Shelby County High School.

    Hicks, a freshman, had enrolled at North Oldham High School this year for better educational opportunities, according to his father Darryl Hicks Sr.

  • Lady Rockets shut out Sayre, 2-0

    On senior night, it was two youngsters who provided the Lady Rockets with a 2-0 victory over visiting Sayre.

    Freshman Shelby Vogel and sophomore Sarah Robinson scored about midway through the first half, giving Shelby County (9-5-2) the lead over the Lady Spartans (6-8-1).

    SCHS Coach Joe Turner changed his lineup for the senior night celebration, playing all the older players the first 20 minutes, before bringing in the underclassmen.

  • OPINION: Players take part in...

    As the Rockets get ready to face Male tonight, the day will start differently for a few players.

    Junior running back Quinten Cottrell won't be focused on bursting through the Bulldogs' front seven. Junior quarterback Branden Cresap won't be fixated on picking apart the Male secondary, looking for receivers Matt Page and Tavis Elzy.

    No, those students, along with a few others, will be busy with more important things this morning.

  • District tournaments get under...

    Shelby County High School will be flush with postseason action starting Monday.

    Both the school’s soccer teams and the volleyball team will begin play in their respective district tournaments.

  • Rockets close season strong

    The SCHS boys’ soccer team wrapped up its regular season Tuesday by dominating visiting Atherton, 4-1.

    John Oakey scored twice in the first 10 minutes of the game, and Sawyer Abshire added a goal with about 18 minutes to play in the first half and the Rockets (9-3-5) coasted the rest of the way.

  • EARLIER: SCHS nips Nelson for...

    BARDSTOWN -- Despite several penalties and sloppy conditions, Shelby County held on to defeat Nelson County, 20-16, Friday night.

    The downpour ended by kickoff, but the field was saturated, requiring two Spread-oriented teams to get creative.

  • EARLIER: A little luck late...

    It was another slow start, and it was ugly, but the SCHS football team beat Eastern, 41-34, Friday for the team's fifth consecutive victory.

    It seemed that the football gods were not going to let Eastern lose the game. The Eagles raced out to a 13-0 lead, recovered two Shelby fumbles that gave them a short field to the end zone, caught a tipped pass for a 47-yard TD and seemed to get every break in the game.
