    Former SCHS All-district and All-region soccer player Bradley Shuck was named to the Mafiaoza’s Invitational All-tournament team for Belmont University.

    Shuck, a freshman for the Bruins, was chosen for his strong play at the center back position.

    Belmont lost 4-1 to Marshall and 2-1 to Oral Roberts in the tournament, and is 0-2 in regular season play.

  • Golf: Rockets close out...

    The SCHS boys’ golf team ended the Central Kentucky Conference regular season with a 163-215 victory in a road match against Frankfort High.

    Josh Griffin’s 37 earned him his sixth medalist honor in the team’s seven conference matches this year, setting the CKC record. The Rockets also tied the CKC record with a 7-0 mark in the Western Division.

    Rounding out the varsity scores were Jared Redmon and Tyler Adams with 41s and eighth-grader Brandon Sanner with a 44 in his first varsity match.

  • Soccer: Lady Rockets hammer...

    Despite a slow start the SCHS girls’ soccer team hammered host Henry County, 9-0, Thursday.

    The Lady Rockets (5-1) got two goals from Alex Patterson, two assists from Callie Greiner and a goal from Maggie Goetzinger in the first half, but Coach Joe Turner wasn’t pleased with the team’s play early on.

    “The first half was a slow process,” he said. “We played very flat from the beginning.”

    The second half, however, was a different story. The girls stormed out of the gate and ended Henry County’s (0-4) chances early on.

  • Cross Country: Beat up Lady...

    Despite being down two runners and have several banged up girls competing, the SCHS girls’ cross-country team had a strong showing Saturday at the SCHS Invitational at East Middle School.

    Taylor Webb played 12th out of 125 runners with a time of 20:49 to lead Shelby County to a 10th-place finish out of 16 teams.

    “Taylor ran a very fine race in a quality field,” Coach Brian Crumbo said. “She ran faster [on Shelby’s hilly course] than on the flat course at the Tiger Run [20:54], so that is big plus.”

  • Cross Country: Depleted Rockets...

    Running without four of the team's top seven, the SCHS boys' cross-country team placed ninth out of 17 teams Saturday in the Shelby County Invitational at East Middle School.

    "You always hope to do well in your home meet, but it just wasn't going to happen for us this time," SCHS Coach Randall McDowell said.

    Though he said he knew challenging two-time meet champion Butler and Butler’s Darius Berry, the individual winner, would be nearly impossible, McDowell said he was hoping for better results.

  • Golf: Rockets drop first match

    The SCHS boys’ golf team dropped its first match of the season Thursday, a 145-161 loss at home to Scott County.

    “They’re a very, very good team,” SCHS Coach Michael Griffin said. “The Scott County team total was only 1 over par, and they were led by two seniors, Kyle Wilshire with a 3-under 33 and Adam Venci with a 1-under 35.”

    Junior Josh Griffin led the Rockets with an even-par 36. Rounding out the varsity squad was Tayler Adams with a 40, Turner Mayton with a 41, Jared Redmon with a 44 and Josh Kuhn with a 46.

  • Soccer: John Hardin shocks...

    The SCHS boys’ soccer team struggled Saturday, getting upset by visiting John Hardin, 3-2.

    The Bulldogs (5-2) took a 2-0 lead in the first half with two counter-attack goals that caught SCHS (3-2-2) sleeping.

    “We started out awesome,” SCHS Coach B.J. Andriot said. “Our possession was great, it was one-two touch all over the field. But our defense was flat-footed just watching.”

  • Rockets, Male come out even

    Playing one of the state’s top teams is a challenge. Playing one of the state’s top teams the night after playing a previously undefeated region opponent is a little crazy.

    But the Rockets did just that.

    The SCHS boys’ soccer team (3-1-2) dominated Eastern, 3-0, Tuesday and then turned around and played even with preseason No. 1 Male (3-2-1) in a scoreless tie on Wednesday.

    With those two games the Rockets proved they are a force to be reckoned with not only in the region but on the state level as well.
