  • Expectations high as SCHS track...

    “The next time you go hard will be Saturday,” Shelby County High School Girls Track Coach Marcus Henderson told both the boys and girls as they stretched over hurdles to work their flexibility Wednesday evening.

    SCHS will send 12 athletes to compete Saturday in 11 events in the 2009 Kentucky Track & Field Championships at Owsley Park of the University of Louisville.

    In preparation, the runners had pretty strenuous practices on Monday and Tuesday, but Wednesday was a lighter workout.

  • Rockets whip Grant in region...

    The SCHS baseball team jumped out quickly, and finished Grant County (10-16) off early in a 15-5 six inning win in the 8th Region opener Monday.

    Fighting off rain, the Rockets (18-12) got ahead 2-0 in the top of the first when Jared Clarkson ripped a two-run homer that also scored Nick Hamblen.

    That was just the start of the day for Clarkson. He also had a two-run single and an RBI double. The double pushed the Rockets’ last run across.

    Ben Glassner then relieved starter Jordan Bailey and pitched a perfect three-strikeout sixth to end the game.

    The Shelby County Lady Rockets rolled up 11 hits enroute to an 11-5 win over Anderson County to take the 30th District Championship Monday at Eminence.

    As the girls were celebrating, the Rockets were taking care of business at home, dropping Spencer County 19-3 in the first round of the 30th District Baseball Tournament.

    The Lady Rockets trailed 5-0, but scored 11 unanswered runs including five in the third and five more in the seventh for the win. It was the Lady Rockets first win over Anderson County in the last five meetings.

  • Bearcats top Rockets for...

    The SCHS baseball team couldn't keep an aggressive Anderson County squad down during a 13-4 loss Wednesday in the 30th District Championship game at the Shelby athletic complex.

    The Bearcats had eight hits and stole five bases in the first two innings on the way to a 7-2 lead and never looked back.

    "It was just a matter of we couldn't make plays and we weren't aggressive at the plate," SCHS Coach Bart Roettger said. "And Anderson just flat hit the baseball, and they were aggressive on the bases. They just outplayed us in every aspect of the game.

  • Lady Rockets advance to district...

    The Shelby County Lady Rockets kicked a three-game losing streak and started the postseason right with a 12-4 victory over Spencer County in the first round of the 30th District Tournament at Eminence on Monday.

    The Lady Rockets (15-13) started a little slow but picked up in a hurry and coasted over Spencer (8-13).

  • EARLIER: Lady Rockets whip...

  • EARLIER: Rockets top Spencer, 8-2

    Almost like calling a shot, the Shelby County Rockets knew they had to put up at least seven runs in beating Spencer County on Wednesday.

    And the Rockets did just that, actually tacking on an extra run to down the Bears (6-8), 8-2.

    The runs were important for the 30th District race, which now has three teams tied with one loss. Shelby County is 2-1 in district play, but Anderson and Spencer are both 1-1 with games remaining against Eminence.

    The SCHS softball team continued it’s return to redemption with a 7-2 victory over 30th District foe Spencer County on Wednesday.

    The Lady Rockets (8-6) have won three of their last four, snapping a stretch of losing five of six.

    “I think everything that we accomplished the past weekend [at the Franklin County tournament] spilled over to this game,” SCHS Coach Kelly Cable said. “Hopefully we can keep building on it and keep heading in the right direction.”

  • Lady Rockets drop 2, get ready...

    The Lady Rockets have continued their up-and-down season with the District 30 Tournament coming up next week.

    After having won four of their previous five, they had lost two in row this week and stood at 14-12 before Thursday night's game at Pleasure Ridge Park.

    SCHS lost to Western Hills, 3-1, on Monday and then to Ballard, 6-0, on Tuesday.

    Against Ballard (27-5), starting pitcher Haleigh LeCompte (10-10) gave up a run in the first but held the Bruins scoreless until the top of sixth, when they scored five times.
