  • Soccer: Rockets top Western Hills

    The SCHS boys’ soccer team stretched its unbeaten streak to five games with a 4-1 beating of  visiting Western Hills Tuesday.

    Sawyer Abshire scored twice to lead the Rockets on senior night.

    “Really, we dominated the game,” SCHS Coach B.J. Andriot said. “It was good because we got to play everybody, and it was really an easy win.”

    However, as the end of the season approaches, the Rockets do find themselves in a bit of a hole.

  • Rockets struggle through regional

    The SCHS boys’ golf team had a 10-1 record in nine-hole matches, but tournaments seemed to be their problem all year long.

    That trend didn’t change Tuesday in the Region 6 Tournament at Seneca Park Golf Course.

    The Rockets struggled early and often, finishing with a 352. Tayler Adams, playing in the Rockets’ No. 3 spot, led the way for Shelby County with an 84. Rounding out the squad were Josh Griffin, with an 85, Josh Kuhn, with a 91, Jared Redmon, with a 92, and Turner Mayton, with a 95.

  • Soccer: Rockets rained out of...

    The only real winner in the Male High School Bulldog Cup this year was Mother Nature.

    The Rockets played just one of what likely would have been a three- or four- game run for Shelby County.

    SCHS tied Kentucky Country Day, 0-0, Saturday but needed a three-goal victory to advance to a makeshift title game.

    SCHS Coach B.J. Andriot said his again dominated but again couldn’t win. The Rockets are now 6-3-5 on the season.

    The Lady Rockets pulled to 10-7 and made it close again at 16-14 before Nelson pulled away in that first game.

    “Nelson County is a tough team that plays very good defense,” SCHS Coach Felicia Pace said. “We can’t come out with such a slow opening.”

  • EARLIER: Rockets getting some...

    With a three-game winning streak the SCHS football team is starting to earn a little respect.

    With years of being overlooked, it appears that the Rockets have arrived. Shelby County sits at No. 15 in all-class ranking in The Courier-Journal’s Litkenhous ranking, No. 24 in Dave Cantrell’s Rating the State published by The Herald-Leader and No. 10 in Class 6A by BluegrassPreps.
