  • Legion team opens play this...

    The Shelbyville American Legion Post 37 baseball team has wasted no time getting started this year.

    The team will travel to Bowling Green this weekend to play four games at Western Kentucky University.

    Though his roster isn’t completely set just yet, Coach Jim Wiley said the team should be pretty good.

    “We got a few guys back from last year, and I think we’re going to be pretty good,” he said. “We’ll find out in a hurry.”

  • Lady Rockets out at State

    OWENSBORO -- The SCHS girls’ softball team’s seniors will be back in time for graduation, much to their dismay.

  • Graduation memories

    Would you rather cross the stage for your diploma or slide across home plate with the winning run?

    That’s the question facing four SCHS softball players tonight.

    Katie Case, Shauna Gramig, Farren Holland and Haleigh LeCompte are the only seniors on the SCHS softball team that takes the field today in the double- elimination State Tournament at Jack Fisher Park in Owensboro.

    The decision could be simple.

  • Senior leaders keep focus while...

    Whether it was Katie Case singing songs from “Lion King” before the region title game, Haleigh LeCompte making up new Shelby cheers or the senior group coming up with new eye-black dots, these seniors know what it takes to win.

  • Baseball star Stallings signs...

    Daniel Stallings was in that familiar seat alongside his parents in the Shelby County library on Friday afternoon,

    His teammates sat in three rows of chairs facing him, and numerous other friends, coaches and well-wishers crowded in behind them as he took up a pen and signed his name to a letter-of-intent to play baseball at Asbury College.

    But this celebration was not so much about Stallings the outfielder as it was about Stallings the graduating senior. In this defining moment, his character dominated the discussion over his statistics.

  • EARLIER: Shelby runners move on...

    Led by a strong group of runners, Shelby County’s boys track team finished fourth at the Class AAA Region 4 meet this week at Male High School in Louisville.

    Shelby totaled 68 points in trailing winner Ballard (126), Trinity (122) and Oldham County (79).

    Shelby’s girls finished seventh with 15 points in the meet also won by Ballard  (122).

    The top two individuals and teams and the other top 10 times will move on to next week’s state meet in Louisville, and Shelby County will be well represented.

  • Williams' 1-hitter ends 3-...

    Shelby County right-hander Corey Williams threw a 1-hitter at Lexington Dunbar on Wednesday night to end the Rockets’ two-game losing streak, 4-0.

    Williams, a senior right-hander, was in trouble only in the first inning, when he walked two men, and he shut down the 2007 state champions with the help of solid defense.

    “He did a great job,” Coach Bart Roettger said. “He got his curveball over early in the count and did a good job of  mixing up pitches. They [Dunbar] never really got their bats square all night.”

  • Brown top 10 in Georgetown

    Brandon Brown had his best finish of the year on the Hooters Tour stop at Cherry Blossom Country Club in Georgetown this past weekend.

    Brown, a native of Shelby County who played at Eastern Kentucky University, shot 12-under-par 276 to finish 10th in the ADI Classic, eight strokes behind winner Jeff Corr. 

    After opening with an even-par 72 that put him in jeopardy of missing the cut, Brown shot 66, 69 and 69 to move up the leaderboard.

  • Rockets take off, beat South...

    The Rockets got off to a slow start last Thursday night against South

    Oldham, but they really blasted off in the third inning and went on to win, 9-4.

    "We were down four-[to]-nothing, but after our senior leaders came out

    with a pep talk in the third, things really changed fast after that,"

    SCHS Coach Bart Roettger said. "We got four runs in the third inning to tie the game."

    Nick Hamblem and John Collins both had doubles, and the Rockets were off,

  • SCHS pounds Oldham early, often...

    Shelby County’s hot offense continued to burn up the opposition.

    On Tuesday evening, the Rockets scored five runs in the first inning and went on to pound rival Oldham County, 15-8, at Clear Creek Park.

    The Rockets (15-8) had trailed before overpowering South Oldham last week with a 9-run outburst, but this time they didn’t wait to grab the lead.

    The Rockets had 14 hits and took advantage of six walks and six hit batters by Oldham County’s pitchers.
