  • Rockets split doubleheader

    Mother Nature and her spring cold snap whipped Shelby County on Monday and Tuesday, as the Rockets were forced to cancel games.

    But the weather was so nice on Saturday the Rockets got to play two.

    Shelby came out hot in the morning, whipping Bishop Brossart (4-3), 10-3, but a long afternoon layoff wore the Rockets down, allowing Scott High (3-3) to battle back and win the nightcap, 7-6.

  • Whitehouse signs with Georgetown

    Tyler Whitehouse said he wasn’t sure what he was going to do about college, but he knew he wanted to play soccer.

    “I was kind of up in the air about it until [SCHS Coach] B.J. [Andriot] told me he knew the coach at Georgetown [College],” Whitehouse said. “He made a couple of calls, and once I went up there, I loved it. I knew that’s where I wanted to go.”

    Whitehouse made a couple of trips to the Georgetown campus, and once an offer was made, he was ready to sign.

  • Anderson slams past Shelby

    One big hit changed the Lady Rockets’ game at Anderson County on  Thursday.

    Anderson County’s Courtney Turpin ripped a shot over the left-field fence with the bases loaded to give Anderson a 4-0 lead in the second inning and that proved to be enough to beat the Lady Rockets, 6-1.

    The Lady Rockets (4-1) got one run back in the top of the sixth, when Hannah Abbott ripped Turpin’s pitch over the left-field fence for a solo home run.

  • Lady Rockets whip Walton-Verona

    The SCHS softball team moved to 4-0 with very different victories against Walton-Verona and Garrard County this week.

    The girls hammered Walton-Verona, 14-1, in five innings on Wednesday, but on Tuesday they had to work to get by Garrard County, 4-2.

    “We executed well two nights in a row,” SCHS Coach Kelly Cable said. “We had to manufacture runs [Tuesday], and we hit the ball very well [Wednesday].”

    The Lady Rockets pounded out 11 hits, including two triples, in routing Walton-Verona (1-5).

  • Rockets drill Eminence, 20-1

    The SCHS baseball team pounded out 16 hits, including a home run and five more extra-base hits, in a 20-1 five-inning whipping of Eminence on Tuesday.

    Shelby (3-2) scored nine runs in the first inning, highlighted by a three-run homer from John Hunter.

  • Spring full of optimism on...

    The SCHS football team hit the field Wednesday for its annual spring game.

    And though there were four players involved with baseball and 10 others out for injuries and other reasons, SCHS Coach Todd Shipley said he was “a little shocked” with what he saw.

    “I was very pleased with how the guys came out and played,” he said. “We tried to keep the two teams even, and after I divided them, the A team was very confident, and the B team was a little skeptical. But the B team came out and won, 21-0.”

  • SCHS boys win home meet

    The SCHS track-and-field teams finished up the home portion of their schedule with an all-comers meet Tuesday.

    The Lady Rockets finished fifth with 69.5 points. Bardstown took first with 146.5.

  • Rockets grab second in first meet

    SCHS opened its track season Tuesday with a large home all-comers meet.

    The boys posted 16 top-five finishes, good enough to finish second overall in the meet to Trinity.

    The Lady Rockets fielded a small team but still managed to score a strong 49 points, enough for sixth out of 11 teams.

    The Rockets seemed to have enough high finishes to win the meet, but Trinity's larger squad took the honors.

    "Numbers killed us on the boys' side," SCHS Coach George Cottrell said.

  • Lady Rockets move to 3-0

    The SCHS girls' tennis team gave up its first point of the season but still whipped Anderson County, 4-1, Monday.
