  • Bearcat dinger nips Rockets

    The SCHS baseball team came out hot, but dropped like the cold temperatures Tuesday in a 9-5 loss at Anderson County.

    “It was a team effort and a team loss,” SCHS Coach Bart Roettger said. “Our hitters need to be more aggressive, and when we get an early lead, our pitchers need to keep the heat on them. We struck out 11 times. You can’t go long stretches without putting the ball in play.

  • SCHS rifle team in nation&...

    The SCHS Marine Corps JROTC precision air rifle team wrapped up its season late last month with an eighth-place finish at the National JROTC Air Rifle Championship at Ft. Benning, Ga.

    The team qualified for the championship by ranking as one of the top four Marine Corps JROTC teams in the east in a match at Port Clinton, Ohio. The top eight teams (four from the East and four from the West) then met with the top eight teams from the Army and Navy to compete at Ft. Benning.

  • SCHS girls struggle at Apollo...

    After her team's 1-2 trip to the round-robin tournament at Owensboro Apollo last weekend, SCHS softball Coach Kelly Cable is at a loss.

    The Lady Rockets started the season 4-0 but now have lost three of their last four, scoring just two runs in the three losses combined.

    “I can’t figure it out,” Cable said. “I know the talent is here, and I know what these girls are capable of, but I can’t figure out how to get it out of them.”

  • Local youth to drive in kart...

    Jim Howe was looking for a way to restart his go-kart team, and for that he needed a driver.

    Howe works in Louisville with Sherry Pearcy, and her son Daniel, 11, just happens to be a race enthusiast.

    “I talked some with her about it, and although Daniel had never raced before, he showed some potential,” Howe said.

  • Rockets top Mercer, 9-5

    Last season the SCHS baseball team struggled to score runs with two out, but this year the Rockets crave the clutch situation.

    In Thursday's 9-5 victory over Mercer County (4-5), Shelby County (7-3) scored eight runs with two outs.

    Although those runs didn't come in one outburst, they did come in bunches.

  • Rockets drop Waggener, Webster

    The SCHS baseball team squeezed two games in Wednesday after a couple of rainouts earlier this week.

    The Rockets whipped visiting Webster County, 9-6, then a few hours later downed Waggener, 12-5.

    “The good thing was we got a couple of wins and got to pitch a lot of guys,” SCHS Coach Bart Roettger said. “We threw seven guys in the two games, and it was nice to see them get some work and look good.”

  • Rockets split Saturday games

    Saturday morning was cold, but the Rockets’ bats heated up quickly. Shelby County's baseball team put nine runs up in the bottom of the third to whip Fairless, Ohio, 11-1, in five innings.

    That afternoon, however, wasn’t as kind to the Rockets (3-2). Shelby got up 1-0 on No. 5-ranked Tates Creek, but the Commodores (2-0) rallied with an eight-run fourth inning for the victory.

  • Rockets focused on state

    Distance and middle distance long have been the Rockets' calling cards in track and field.

    But this year, boys’ Coach George Cottrell is excited to have some strong sprinters to go with his distance runners.

    “I’m really, really optimistic,” he said. “There’s a great deal of competition on the team. Our distance and middle-distance guys are very strong, but this year I think there’s more potential with our sprinters.”
