  • 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.

  • Rockets top Henry County in...

  • Sharks wrap short-course season...

    The Shelby Sharks swim team sent 19 individuals to the 13-and-over United States Swimming Kentucky State Championship this past weekend in Lexington.

    Competing at the University of Kentucky’s Lancaster Aquatic Center, the Sharks came out firing, posting best times in 32 events.

    Amanda Skinner, Addison Barlow and Collin Kessinger all qualified for finals.

    “We had a great weekend and it was nice to see the individuals that are learning the value of hard work and dedication do well,” Sharks Coach Jeremiah Heath said.

  • SCHS soccer player going...

    The culmination of a dream and years of hard work came together for Bradley Shuck on Tuesday afternoon in the SCHS cafeteria.

    Shuck, a senior leader and defenseman for the Rockets' soccer team, signed his letter-of-intent to play soccer at Belmont University in Nashville.

    “This is what Bradley’s been working for, and it’s an amazing accomplishment,” SCHS Coach B.J. Andriot said. “All his hard work, the camps, the travel, it’s all paid off.”

  • Look for Slaughter, WKU to...

    When former SCHS star and current Western Kentucky University guard A.J. Slaughter put up 25 points and grabbed nine rebounds in a 68-54 victory against the University of Louisville in December, the basketball world took notice.

    It seems, however, that many had forgotten about the ‘Toppers.

    If WKU didn’t win the Sunbelt Conference Tournament, some thought they might not make the NCAA Tournament.

    Now that the Hilltoppers are firmly in the field of 65, some may think their 1-year wonder has passed.
