  • Soccer: Rockets hammer North...

    The SCHS boys’ soccer team needed to beat North Oldham on Thursday to earn the No. 2 seeding in the 16th District Tournament, which starts next week.

    The Rockets (8-3-5, 2-0-2 in the district), did more than just win at North Oldham; they sent a message by dominating the Mustangs (6-10-1, 1-3), 4-0.

    Scoring a combined eight goals in their last two games, the Rockets seem to have figured out their scoring issues.

  • Cross country: Rockets look...

    Led by senior Stacey Eden’s second-place finish, the SCHS boys’ cross country team placed 10th out of 26 teams at the Greater Louisville Classic Saturday.

    Eden’s time of 15 minutes, 59 seconds was just behind Greenwood’s Ryan Eaton, the defending state champion, but he held off challenges from Franklin County’s Robert Sandlin and Apollo’s Justin House.

    Running on the fast track at E.P. “Tom” Sawyer Park in Louisville, the Rockets were just nine points behind ninth-place Manual.

  • 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.
