  • Former SCHS star in Fast Pitch...

    Jamie Robinson Roby had the fast-pitch stats: a sub 1.0 earned-run average, a batting average over .450 and two regional titles. But the Hall of Fame was the one hold out.

    Not any more.

    Roby was inducted in the Fast Pitch Hall of Fame on June 13, an honor long overdue. Playing slow-pitch for Shelby County as a seventh-grader, Roby was an integral part in Shelby County’s first fast-pitch team in 1995, and she graduated in 1997. She’s the first player from SCHS and from the 8th Region to be inducted.

  • Anderson holds off Rockets in...

    The SCHS baseball team got behind early and couldn’t get past Anderson County (26-10), falling, 8-5, Wednesday in the 8th Region Championship game at the Shelby County Athletic Complex.

    The Rockets (19-13) tried to rally in the seventh.

  • Let Simba relieve your stress

    Strategy – nah.

    Motivational speech – not necessary.

    Settle nerves – not really.

    No, the Lady Rockets and their coaches weren’t focused on any of those things before Wednesday’s 8th Region championship game.

    No, instead they were chatting about Simba, the circle of life and the songs “Can You Feel the Love Tonight” and “Hakuna Matata.”

    Yep, the movie “The Lion King” was the main topic of conversation.

  • Lady Rockets take 8th Region...

    Oldham County had cut the Lady Rockets' lead to 6-2 in the top of the seventh inning of the 8th Region final Wednesday night and had a runner on third when senior pitcher Haleigh LeCompte gathered the infielders around her.

    "They got a couple of hits and scored, and I just told them, 'OK, seriously, we need to buckle down and get these outs,’" she said.

  • Spalding title has Shelby flavor

    Former SCHS guard Allison Morris said she didn’t expect much from her freshman season at Spalding University.

    “We only had five returning players, and the rest were freshman, and we had two junior transfers,” she said. “I didn’t even really expect us to have a winning season.”

    After the team started 0-3, Morris’ projections seemed accurate.

    But then a funny thing happened. The girls won six in a row, and the season started to look better.

  • Legion team rallies past...

    They needed every bit of nine innings and more than three hours, but the Shelbyville American Legion Post 37 baseball team came back from a 9-1 deficit to beat Morehead, 11-10, on the road Wednesday.

    After jumping out to a 1-0 lead on Justin McCarty’s RBI single in the top of the first, Shelbyville went ice cold.

    Morehead scored nine unanswered runs during the next five innings to grab a seemingly safe lead.

    But Post 37 would not be denied.

  • Post 37 wins two in wet tourney

    The Shelbyville American Legion Post 37 baseball team picked up two victories in three games during the weekend, but it missed out on a possible tournament title.

    The weather halted games on Thursday and Friday, but Coach Jim Wiley said he wanted to make sure the visiting teams got some games. Only one game was played Friday, Shelby's opener against Ashland.

    The Storm Club, a Cincinnati club, played in Frankfort on Friday, and the rest of the teams picked up doubleheaders on either Saturday or Sunday.

  • StateTournament boasts 8 Top 25...

    With five of the top six teams in the state and 11 of the top 30, it’s no secret that the State Softball Tournament, starting Friday at Jack C. Fisher Park in Owensboro, is a tough field.

    But balanced it doesn't seem to be.

    The top half of the bracket is spilling over with ranked teams -- No. 1 Christian County, No. 5 Mercy, No. 6 Allen County Scottsville, No. 20 Franklin County, No. 22 Garrard County, No. 29 Ashland Blazer and No 30 Shelby County.
