  • Small SCHS state team has lots...

    The SCHS boys' track team will compete in just four events at the class 3A state meet today and Saturday at the University of Louisville, but they are loaded with potential.

    The team has entries in two running events -- the 3,200-meter and the 4x800 relay -- and two field events -- the shot put and discus -- but head coach Jerry Lucas said he likes his team's chances in their events.

    "In all four events that we're entered in we have a shot to do well, and that's exciting," he said. "I think we're going to be right in the thick of it with all four."

  • Lady Rockets rally into regional...

    It took a few innings, but the Lady Rockets finally got things rolling in the 8th Region Softball Tournament at Oldham County Monday.

    The Shelby County girls fell behind early, and needed all seven innings before finally taking the lead in the seventh on the way to an 8-5 first-win over Henry County.

    The Lady Rockets got behind 4-0 after two innings, but started chipping away with two runs in the fourth and one more in the fifth and sixth innings. But Henry County still held a 5-4 lead going into the seventh. That's when the Lady Rockets finally opened up.

  • Henry County trips up Rockets in...

    The SCHS baseball lost its bid for a third straight 8th Region crown Monday when host Henry County upset the Rockets in the opening round of the region tournament.

    Shelby County jumped out to a 4-0 lead when Clay Minor and John Hunter picked up RBIs in the first inning, and Hunter and Daniel Davenport picked up RBIs in the second. The four-run outburst knocked Henry County's starting pitcher from the game.

  • Anderson tops Rockets for...

    The SCHS baseball team got behind Anderson County early, and couldn't dig out of a hole in an 8-3 loss Wednesday in the 30th District championship at Spencer County.

    The Rockets got a boost in the first inning when John Hunter hit a two-out solo home run to left to take a 1-0 lead.

    But Anderson County had answers.

    The Bearcats got two, two-run home runs in the top of the second inning, the second one coming with two-outs. That gave Anderson a 4-1 lead and control of the game.

  • Rockets finish fifth in loaded...

    The Shelby County boys' and girls' track team hosted the Class 3A Region meet Wednesday, and both teams competed well.

    The Rockets took fifth place and the Lady Rockets ninth in what is widely considered the most difficult region in any class in the state.

    Stacey Eden and Matt Spencer led the charge for the Rockets. Eden won the 3,200 meter race with a time of 9:45.02 and anchored the 4x800 relay and ran on the 4x400 relay as well.

  • 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.
