  • Lady Rockets fall in 9 innings...

    A controversial call in the first inning led to extra innings and a 1-0 Anderson County win in Tuesday's 30th District Championship game.

    The Lady Rockets dropped a chance to win the school's fifth straight 30th District Title when Anderson scored one run in the top of the ninth and then used a double play to end Shelby County's title bid in the bottom of the inning.

    However, it was a play in the first inning, a botched call by the first base umpire, that had SCHS head coach Kelly Cable bothered after the game.

  • Girls fall to Anderson 1-0 in 9...

    A controversial call and two extra innings cost the Lady Rockets the 30th District Championship Tuesday. Anderson County scored one run in the bottom of the ninth inning to get the 1-0 win.

    With two outs in the bottom of the first, the Lady Rockets had a chance to score early, but a curious call by the first base umpire killed the Lady Rockets' chance. The Anderson County first baseman dropped the ball on the throw, which would've allowed Dee Dee Davis to score from third, but the umpire ruled that the first baseman had control.

  • Rockets hammer Eminence to...

    SCHS head coach Bart Roettger was looking for a couple different things as the Rockets faced Eminence in the first round of the 30th District Baseball Tournament at Spencer County Monday.

    "I told the guys what I wanted was them to come out with that business-like approach, I wanted them to expect to win, and take care of business. And I wanted us to have some fun."

    The Rockets seemed to approach the game exactly like Roettger wanted, jumping out early and hanging 31-0 five-inning whipping on Eminence.

  • Rockets look to be favorites in...

    The Shelby County High School baseball team is currently riding a three-game losing streak, but that doesn't mean the Rockets won't be the top dogs in the 30th District Tournament.

    Shelby County lost nine straight last season heading into the postseason, but went on to win the district and region tournaments before finishing the year as state runners-up.

  • Girls district tourney a two-...

    The 30th District Softball Tournament is shaping up much like it has in the past several years, with a spotlight on the title game that will likely pit the Lady Rockets against Anderson County.

    The two teams were by far the top teams in the district, and likely the top two teams in the region. While Anderson and Shelby split four games during the regular season, the Lady Rockets won the one that mattered most, the district seeding game on April 22 at SCHS.

  • Girls grab Bulldog tournament...

    The Shelby County girls' softball team dominated during pool play at the Holmes Bulldog Round Robin Tournament, and then held on for a win in the championship game, topping Bracken County 2-1 to take the title Saturday.

    "Overall, I was pleased because we went up there and did what we had to do," SCHS head coach Kelly Cable said.

    The Lady Rockets had just two hits in the championship game, but took advantage of two Bracken County errors in the decisive fourth inning.

  • Rockets split two games at...

    The SCHS baseball team got strong pitching performances in two one-run games Saturday.

    Nolan Mills pitched the Rockets to a 2-1 win over West Jessamine Saturday morning and Jordan Burk pitched well in a 5-4 loss to Dunbar in the afternoon during the Rockets' split in the Fayette County Invitational. Friday's game against Eastern was rained out.

  • Rockets take second at home meet

    With some runners out and most others focused on Saturday's Dunbar Invitational and the regional, the Shelby County boys' track team used Tuesday's All-comers meet as a tune-up.

  • Minnis carries Rockets over Fern...

    The SCHS baseball team was gunning for a 7-0 record in the region, but they will have to settle for a perfect 6-0. The Rockets' game at Simon Kenton Wednesday was called in the fourth due to the weather.

    The Rockets were trailing 4-3, but had the tying run on second with no outs.

    Shelby did get a game finished on Tuesday, a 2-1 win over Fern Creek.

    The Rockets were trailing 1-0 when Coty Minnis hammered a shot to left-center in the fourth, clearing the scoreboard and the netting behind the fence to give the Rockets the lead.

  • Lady Rockets split extra-inning...

    The Shelby County softball team traveled to Anderson County on Monday for the fourth meeting between the two teams.

    Anderson came out on top in this one 2-1 in eight innings, but SCHS head coach Kelly Cable said it doesn't mean much for the upcoming postseason tournaments.

    "I doesn't take anything away from us," she said. "I think they needed this win more than we did, and hopefully it will give them a false sense of security. But really, I don't think it has much bearing on the district or regional tournaments."
