  • Rockets back on road at Eastern...

    The Eagles (5-1) squeaked out a 38-35 victory at Seneca last week but have been on cruise control most of the season. Outside a 49-0 loss at home to Trinity, Eastern has won its other four games by an average of more than 27 points.

    "They're pretty good, and they're fast," SCHS Coach Shipley said. "But our JV team beat them earlier this week, so maybe that's a good omen."

  • Shelby flat in title-game loss...

    SCHS Coach B.J. Andriot wasn't happy after his team's 2-0 loss to Oldham County in the 16th District championship game Wednesday at the SCHS athletic complex.

    But it wasn't just the loss to Oldham County (17-4-1) that he was upset with; it was how the Rockets (8-6-4) lost.

    "We didn't play very well at all," he said. "We were very, very flat, we looked tired, our first touch was bad, our decision-making was bad, and we were selfish. It was frustrating to watch."

    Shelby County jumped out quickly but had to rally in the third set to top host Anderson County, 2-1 (25-13, 18-25, 25-17), in the 28th District Volleyball Championship match Tuesday.

    The Rockets (13-7) raced out to a 10-0 lead behind Christy Hatter's serve and coasted past the Bearcats (18-12) in the first game.

    A late serving streak gave Anderson County the victory in game two, but the Rockets fought back to take game three behind a balanced attack.

  • Oh so close: Rockets fall to 0-6...

    Shelby County High School's defense caused two turnovers and held George Rogers Clark to a total of 37 yards in the second half, but the Rockets (0-6, 0-2) came up just short in a 14-7 home loss to the Cardinals on Friday.

    George Rogers Clark's Ryan Williams reeled off two long touchdown runs in the first half - 52 and 68 yards - and that proved to be enough for the Cardinals (5-2, 1-1).

  • West takes conference tournament...

    West Middle School got its payback and the Mid Bluegrass Conference Tournament Football Championship with a 6-0 victory over rival East Middle on Saturday at North Oldham.

    "We knew we'd have to win it with defense, and every kid stepped up and did exactly what we worked on," West Coach Roy Bailey said. "We got away from the blitz, focused on stopping the run and just played fundamental football."

  • Rockets advance to 16th District...

    "I could not have asked for a better match from the girls," SCHS Coach Felicia Pace said. "They worked hard and never backed down."

    Henry County won the first game, but the Rockets battled back to take games two and three.

    "The girls rallied with offense from Leanna Armstrong and serving from Caty Hawkins to win game two," Pace said. "The third game was a great team effort with blocking and digging."
