    BOWLING GREEN – They overcame the weather, the pressure and even a rare two-stroke penalty, and today the Shelby County Lady Rockets can celebrate a third-place finish in the KHSAA Girls Golf Tournament.

    The Lady Rockets rallied from a poor first round to improve their scores by 22 strokes during a darkness-delayed second round at Bowling Green Country Club and at one point shared the lead Sunday morning before coming up short of their first state championship.

    BOWLING GREEN - The Lady Rockets finished third in the KHSAA Girls Golf Tournament at Bowling Green Country Club on Sunday.

    SCHS gave winner Green County and runner-up Sacred Heart a run for the title throughout the round, shaving 22 strokes as a team from their first-round score.

    Green County won with a two-day low 689. Sacred Heart shot 695, and SCHS shot 702.

    "We still didn't play the last four holes as well," coach Anna Simpson said, attributing the turnaround to sunny, mild weather and less nervousness.

    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.

    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.
