  • Oldham tops Shelby in volleyball...

    The SCHS volleyball team showed promise early but couldn't maintain momentum in a 2-0 (25-16, 25-17) loss to visiting Oldham County on Monday.

    The girls led early in each game before giving way to Oldham, but SCHS Coach Felicia Pace said she knows her team is better than that first match shows.

  • Rockets can’t hold...

    The Shelby County boys’ soccer team gave visiting St. Xavier all it could handle Tuesday, but came up just short in a 2-1 loss.

    The Rockets (No. 14, 0-1) dominated the first half, controlling the ball on the Tigers (No. 4, 1-0) and earning several shots on goal but came up empty until a penalty kick in the 37th minute.

    Luis Cervantes was taken down by a St. X defender on the right side just inside the box.

    Taylor Shaver took the kick and buried his shot inside the top right corner, giving the Rockets a 1-0 lead.

  • EARLIER: Rockets hammer Bullitt...

    Whatever they wanted to do, whenever they wanted to do it.

    That’s what the SCHS football team’s offense did Friday against Bullitt Central in the final scrimmage.

    The offense rolled up 446 yards, and the defense stymied Bullitt Central all night, allowing a meager 149 yards.

    Despite the gaudy statistics, the Rockets' coaches were left wondering after the two preseason victories.

  • SCHS Hall of Fame announcement...

    Shelby County High School has postponed the first Hall of Fame induction for athletic and academic standouts in the school’s history.

    The first class was scheduled to be inducted during the first home football, which is Friday.

    However, the school has said it won’t meet that timetable, and no time has been rescheduled for the first class.

  • SCHS golfers stay perfect

    With two more victories this week, the SCHS boys’ golf team has moved to 5-0 in matches and 4-0 against Central Kentucky Conference opponents.

    The Rockets held off Mercer County, 158-167, on the road at Brightleaf Golf Course on Wednesday, and that was on the heels of dominating Spencer County, 162-208, Tuesday at Weissinger Hills.

  • QB ready to get back under...

    It has been almost one full year, 50 weeks really, since Branden Cresap has lined up under center in a game that counts.

    Cresap's knee was severely injured at Johnson Central in the third game of the 2008 season. Now after months of rehab, a full summer of passing tournaments and two scrimmages, Cresap will finally get to take the field in a game that counts.

    “I can’t wait,” he said. “The last two weeks it’s been awesome to get back out, but this [tonight] is going to be even better.”

  • Rockets ease into season

    The SCHS boys’ cross country team took a slow approach to starting the season with the Clarksville (Ind.) High School Hokum Karem meet Tuesday.

    The Rockets place fifth overall, but they were without the team’s top runner, Stacey Eden.

    The meet had runners alternate each mile and racing against other pairs as well as other teams.

    William Thompson and Travis Adams teamed together to lead the Rockets with a time of 32.55 and finished fourth out of 74 pairs.

  • Rockets ready for opener

    After his team demolished Bullitt Central in a scrimmage last week, SCHS Coach Todd Shipley said it was hard to tell how good the Rockets might be, but he added that Bryan Station would let them know.

    “We’ll find out quickly just how good we are this Friday,” he said.

    Well, that Friday is here, and Bryan Station has already established just how good they are.

  • Lady Rockets open with a victory

    The SHCS girls’ cross-country team opened the season Tuesday with a victory in the Clarksville (Ind.) High School Hokum Karem meet.

    The triumph came from the combination of Caterina Karas and Taylor Webb. The meet had runners alternate each mile, and racing against other pairs as well as other teams.

    Karas and Webb ran a 38:06, holding off a pair from Eastern High School by 21 seconds to win.

    As a team, the Lady Rockets placed third out of seven schools with 44 points. Floyd Central (Ind.) won the meet.

  • Rocket soccer team drills Spencer

    The SCHS boys’ soccer team coasted to an 11-1 victory at Spencer County on Tuesday.

    The game was called with about eight minutes to play because of the 10-goal mercy rule.

    “We had about a million chances to score,” SCHS Coach B.J. Andriot said. “I thought we played really well. I told the kids going in that I didn’t want them fooling around or joking around, I wanted them to play hard just like we were playing anybody else. It’s my belief that you respect your opponent by playing hard, and I thought we did.”
