  • Lady Rockets beat Sacred Heart,...

    The SCHS girls’ golf team got some payback against Sacred Heart on Monday.

    The Valkyries had beaten Shelby County twice this season, but the Lady Rockets topped them, 173-204, at Weissinger Hills. Although Sacred Heart didn’t bring three of its usual top four, SCHS Coach Anna Simpson said it wouldn’t have mattered.

    “I don’t think they would’ve been able to make up 31 strokes,” she said.

  • Rocket golfers top Anderson,...

    After rain shortened their match against Anderson County on Monday, the Shelby County Rockets invited the Bearcats back to Weissinger Hills Friday to complete the match.

    Shelby County was in the lead when the rain hit Monday and didn’t let up on the return to the course, holding on for a 158-161 victory. Josh Griffin was the medalist, leading the way with a 38. The Rockets were grouped right behind Griffin, with Josh Kuhn next at 39, Jared Redmon at 40 and Tayler Adams at 41.

  • Brown grabs top-10 finish on...

    Shelby County’s Brandon Brown took Wichita by storm this past weekend.

    Brown finished tied for ninth at Preferred Health Systems Wichita Open on the Nationwide Tour, by far his best finish of the year.

    “I wasn’t real surprised because I’ve played well out here,” Brown said of his four events on the Nationwide Tour. “I made the cut twice, and really even in the two where I missed the cut, I had a chance to make it. I’ve just had a couple of holes with big numbers that cost me.

  • Rockets' Soccerama bringing...

    The SCHS boys’ soccer season doesn’t kick off until Tuesday, when it hosts St. Xavier at 7 p.m., but the Rockets will get to see some of the state’s top teams this Saturday during Shelby County’s annual Soccerama.

  • Shelbyville rocked at Mid-South...

    Though Shelbyville American Legion Post 37 dropped its first two games and was eliminated from the Mid-South Regional in Enid, Okla., last week, Coach Jim Wiley said he's still proud of his baseball team.

    "I'm not upset," he said. "I'm disappointed that we didn't go out there and beat somebody, but we're still state champs, and you can't take that great accomplishment away from these kids. That's something they can be very proud of."

  • Rain delaying SCHS boys&...

    The Shelby County boys’ golf team can’t seem to get its season under way.

    The boys were scheduled to begin the season on Aug. 4 at the Oldham County Classic at Nevel Meade Golf Course, but rain ended that day after just four holes.

    The boys were then set to play their first match, against Anderson County on Monday, but again the weather intervened.

  • Shelbyville rocked in region...

    The Shelbyville American Legion Post 37 baseball team struck first but didn’t have the firepower to hang with host Enid, Okla., losing, 18-4, in a seven-inning loss in the first round of the Mid-South Regional Tournament Thursday.

    Jordan Toby’s single scored Dylan Grandon in the bottom of the second, and James Wright’s infield single scored Eric Standafer to put Shelby in front, 2-0.

  • Lady Rockets Soccerama this...

    The Shelby County girls' soccer team will have its big fundraiser Saturday with Soccerama.

    The girls have some of the top teams in the state coming in for six varsity and JV games at the SCHS Athletic Complex.

    The Lady Rockets will face South Laurel in the last matchup of the day, beginning at 4 p.m.

    South Laurel finished last year with a 16-7-1 record and dominated the 16th Region before finally losing, 1-0, to Boyle County in Sub-section 8.

  • Host team awaits Post 37 at...

    The Shelbyville American Legion Post 37 baseball team wrapped up its fifth state championship this past weekend. Though that seems like a lot, it pales in comparison to the team’s next opponent.

    Enid, Okla., the host squad of this year’s Mid-South Regional, is a 12-time state champ. Though it didn’t win this season, it did win consecutive titles from 2005 to 2008, so experience is on the side of the host team this week.

  • Black shirts lead Blue and Gold

    Donning the blue and gold for Shelby County on Friday night remains the ultimate goal, but wrapping up in a black jersey on weekday afternoons seems like an odd way to get there.

    Unless that is, you want to be one of the Rockets' leaders.

    Each season SCHS's football coaching staff rewards players that show a high level of effort, commitment and sacrifice with back practice jerseys. Those jerseys give the rest of the team something to strive for and let the players know who they should watch if they’re looking for tips.
