  • EARLIER: End of an Era

     Everyone knew the end would finally come. And everyone associated with the Anderson County-Shelby County high school athletic rivalry knew it would happen on the baseball or softball diamond.

    But few could have imagined the end being a series of exclamation points instead of a period.

    And after Shelby outlasted Anderson 10-9 last Thursday, some on both sides lamented the end of the rivalry as it stands now.

    Ryle 3, Shelby County 1

    Shelby came back once early to tie with Dee Dee Davis' run off Courtney Tinsley's single, but Shelby couldn't muster the grit to overcome a determined Ryle in the elimination game.

    Raider Bella Steinle scored two runs, one in the fourth and one in the sixth, to set up Ryle's win. Rocket Jeneca Thomas took the loss while Haylee Smith earned the win. Both teams fought a stiff headwind that held up fly balls for easy outs.

    LEXINGTON -- In the end, the comeback kids didn't have another one in them, as Shelby lost 8-6 to West Jessamine in the KHSAA State Baseball Tournament Monday.

    "I thought we had it in us," Rocket Coach Bart Roettger said. "When you have the tying run at second base in the last inning, that's all you can ask for."
