  • Rockets heading to Madison...

    After last Friday's showing at Eastern, SCHS Coach Todd Shipley is looking for a better effort at district foe Madison Central tonight at 7:30.

    "We have to be better than last week," he said. "We need to get off blocks and make tackles."

    This week won't be an easy task for the Rockets (0-7, 0-2). In Shelby's last chance to win a district game, the Indians (6-1, 1-1) will feature a potent running attack with two explosive runners.

    "Keshawn Simpson is a man among boys," Shipley said. "And Isaiah Kavanaugh is as explosive a runner as we'll see."

  • Rockets to face Oldham for third...

    SCHS Coach B.J. Andriot wasn't happy with his team's play against Oldham County in the 16th District title game last week, a 2-0 loss. But Andriot knows his team will be better when it meets host Oldham County at 7 p.m. today in the 8th Region Tournament championship.

    "The deal this time is lose, and you go home," he said. "I know these guys don't want to go home, so they'll be ready. This team, when they play with the intensity they had [Monday] against CAL, can hang with anybody."

  • Rockets pull away from CAL

    The SCHS boys' soccer team used a 4-1 victory over Christian Academy Louisville on Monday to advance to tonight's 8th Region championship game at Oldham County High School.

    "These guys really wanted it tonight," SCHS Coach B.J. Andriot said. "It was unbelievable - their intensity was amazing."

    SCHS will play host Oldham County at 7 o'clock.

  • Eastern rolls over Rockets, 48-25

    The highlights for Shelby County were few and far between on Friday, when the Rockets traveled to Eastern High School.

    The Eagles (6-1) sprinted out to a 20-0 lead and never looked back, whipping Shelby County (0-7,) 48-25.

    When asked if he was disappointed in his team's play, SCHS Coach Todd Shipley didn't hide it. "I'd say that's right on the money," he said. "Defensively, we didn't play like we had the last three games. We moved the ball some on offense, but defensively we were out of position too many times."

  • Eagles rip Rockets

    The Eastern Eagles raced out to a 20-0 lead early in the first quarter and never looked back Friday, whipping the Rockets 48-25.

    Eastern led by as much as 48-13 early in the second half before Shelby County added a field goal and a late touchdown.

    The big highlight for the Rockets was Edwin Thomas' 90-yard kickoff return for a touchdown that cut the Eagles lead to 28-14 with four minutes to play until halftime.

  • SCHS girls fall to Oldham

    The SCHS girls' soccer team started strong, but Oldham County proved to be too much Tuesday beating Shelby, 5-1 and advancing to the 16th District finals at Spencer County.

    Oldham then beat South Oldham, 2-1, Wednesday for the district title.

    The Rockets started strong in the semifinals but couldn't capitalize on a few chances early.

    "We played really, really well for the first 24 minutes," Coach Joe Turner said. "We were settled down, played smart and had three or four shots. But we just couldn't keep that momentum."

  • Soccer regional begins Monday at...

    The SCHS boys' soccer team found out Thursday night what team it will play in the regional soccer tournament, but Coach B.J. Andriot said he's not worried.

    "I think we'll be fine, no matter who we play," he said. "We'll come out ready on Monday."

    The Rockets (8-6-4) will face the winner of last night's Eastern (10-5-1)/Christian Academy of Louisville (13-4) game on Monday at Oldham County High School, but the game times have not been set.

  • 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."

  • Lady Rockets take volleyball...

    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.
