  • Soccer: Lady Rockets rally past...

    The SCHS girls’ soccer team got off to a slow but good start in the Little Caesar’s Classic at Boyle County.

    The girls topped North Hardin, 3-1, but they didn’t start the game they were wanting to.

    “We did not play well in the first half of this game,” SCHS Coach Joe Turner. “North Hardin was aggressive, and we didn’t respond.”

    After a scoreless first half, North Hardin took a 1-0 lead with about 30 minutes to play in the game.

  • Golf: Rockets hammer South Oldham

    The SCHS boys’ golf team posted its best match score of the season in a 156-172 whipping of South Oldham at Weissinger Hills on Tuesday.

    Tayler Adams fired a 38 to lead the Rockets. Rounding out the rest of the top four were Josh Griffin and Jared Redmon, with 39s, and Turner Mayton, with a 40.

    The Rockets have just one match left along with two tournaments before playing in the 6th Region Tournament Sept. 28. Shelby will travel to the Marion County Classic this weekend at the Rosewood Golf Course in Lebanon.

  • Consistent the key for Lady...

    The SCHS girls’ golf team has consistently finished in the top four in tournament play all season and the girls will put that record to the test this weekend in Bowling Green while getting a preview of the State Tournament course.

    Coming off a third place finish at the Gene Hilen Memorial Tournament this past Saturday, the Lady Rockets feel confident.

    Junior Michaela Manley, who fired a 77 to tie for fifth place, said she’s feeling good as the team preps for Bowling Green.

  • Cross country: Rockets 8th at...

    Stacey Eden led the SCHS boys’ cross-country team to an eighth-place finish out of 23 teams at the North Oldham Rumble in the Jungle meet Saturday.

    Eden’s 16:24 was good for fourth place out of 198 runners. It was his first race back after a thigh injury sidelined him, and Eden, a senior all-state runner, missed last week’s Shelby County Invitational for the BMX national event in Louisville.

  • EARLIER: Receiver’s...

    When the Rocket offense started clicking last week against North Hardin, it was no coincidence that Tavis Elzy was helping lead the charge.

    Elzy, a 6-foot, 160-pound junior wide receiver, had nine catches for 81 yards and two touchdowns in last Friday’s victory after having just one catch for 9 yards in the season-opening loss to Bryan Station.

  • Volleyball: SCHS wins twice

    The Shelby County girls’ volleyball team swept through Scott County and Meade County to move to 13-4 on the season.

    The girls hammered Scott County in the first game and then held on in the second for a 2-0 (25-14, 26-24) road victory last Thursday.

    The girls then reversed that trend with a 2-0 victory at home against Meade County on Monday. The Lady Rockets held in the opening game, 25-23, and then ripped the visitors, 25-16, in the second.

  • Cross country: Lady Rockets dual...

    The SCHS girls’ cross-country team took the top two spots but couldn’t hold off Seton High School (Ohio) on Friday.

    Caterina Karas and Taylor Webb were first and second in the 3K race, with times of 11:01 and 11:50, respectively.

    However, Seton took seven of the next eight spots to win the meet.

    Rounding out Shelby’s to seven were Lindsey Miller in ninth with a time of 12:48, Katie Melanson 12th in 13:25, Alexandrea Schank 13th in 13:27, Kathrin Ulrich 19th in 14:53 and Nettie Melanson 20th in 15:01.

  • Lady Rockets whip Henry County

    The Shelby County girls’ volleyball team dominated Henry County Thursday night, but the score wasn’t the most important thing.

    The Lady Rockets beat Henry, 2-0 (25-15, 25-17), but the schools teamed up to raise money with a ‘Volley 4 the Cure’ night, benefiting the Susan G. Komen Foundation for breast cancer research. The teams raised $1,100 with raffles, a bake sale and donations.
