  • 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.

    Shelby County No. 1 Paula Pilcher coasted in her first set, winning, 6-2, but struggled some in the second set before pulling it out, 7-5.

  • Boys tennis team has tough start

    At 0-2 on the season SCHS's boys tennis team has struggled through the early part of the year, but Coach Gerald Buchert said his team will improve.

    “We’re not off to a good start, but we have our top three players back, and they improved with a lot of work over the summer,” he said. “The weather has affected us, like everybody I’m sure, and we haven’t gotten a lot of practice time in. But I think we can get better with more work as the season goes on.”

  • Sharks have strong 12-and-under...

    The younger Shelby Sharks squad dropped time in more than 70 percent of their swims at the 12-and-under state meet at the Mary T. Meagher Aquatics Center in Louisville over the weekend.

    Sam Ruble stole the show during the meet. Not only did he make the finals in all seven of his events, but also he was less than five hundredths of a second off of the Sharks’ team records in all seven events.

    He placed third in the 50 fly and freestyle, sixth in the 100 back and seventh in the 100 free.

  • Lady Rockets whip Eastern

    A lot of patience at the plate, a couple timely hits and a much-improved defense led the Lady Rockets to an 8-4 victory at Eastern Tuesday.

    They had just five hits but earned an astounding 12 walks against the Eagles.

    “We scored four runs in the first on just one hit, and that wasn’t even an RBI,” SCHS Coach Kelly Cable said.

    The Lady Rockets had just one hit that scored runs, a two-run single from Dee Dee Davis in the fifth, but they were able to force Eastern into giving up runs.

  • Rockets top Meade County for...

    The SCHS baseball team bounced back from a loss in the opener Monday to beat visiting Meade County 8-3 Tuesday.

    The Rockets (1-1) got behind early but rallied with a big fourth inning to take the lead.

    “I was a little worried because Meade County came out hitting and picked up two runs in the top of the first,” SCHS Coach Bart Roettger said. “We dug ourselves a hole again and had to work out of it.”

    The Rockets continued to trail 2-0 into the fourth when the bats finally woke up.

  • Penny shines as Rockets fall

    After a full regular season, the district tournament and two rounds of the 8th Region Tournament, Shelby County's basketball season came down to fewer than five ticks on the clock Tuesday night.

    After a missed free throw — something that had proven to be a trend for the Rockets all evening — Anderson County controlled  the rebound and got the ball to its best player, C.J. Penny.

  • Bulldog earns KCAA’s...

    There are still more than two months left in the school year, but March 7 capped off a big year for Cornerstone Christian Academy’s Patrick Maurer.

    Having already been named the Mr. CCA by the teachers and voted the homecoming king, Maurer added to KCAA Mr. Basketball to his list.

    “We’ve been teasing him, calling him Triple Crown,” his mom, Pat Maurer, said.

    After the Bulldogs lost, 58-55, to North Hardin Christian School in the KCAA championship game, the teams waited around for the awards ceremony.

    Shatia Rogers, who has moved from doubles to singles this year, returns a shot Monday against Frankfort. Rogers won her match, 6-1, 6-1, to help the Lady Rockets to a 5-0 victory in the season opener.

    The Shelby County girls' tennis team picked up where it left off last season with a 5-0 victory over visiting Frankfort in the season opener Monday.

  • Lady Rockets win opener

    The defense was a little shaky, but Dee Dee Davis’ big hit got the Lady Rockets a big season-opening road victory, 7-5, at Oldham County on Monday.

    Trailing, 5-4, in the top of the sixth, Davis ripped a two-out, two-run home run, scoring Hannah Stucker. The shot just squeaked over the fence, but it was by far the biggest hit for the Lady Rockets and Davis’ first career home run.

    Davis also added a single and an RBI double to cap off a big night.
