  • 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."

  • Rockets top Dragons 4-1

    The Shelby County baseball team moved to 14-9 on the season with a 4-1 win over visiting South Oldham Thursday behind a strong start from Coty Minnis.

  • Short-handed Rockets run well at...

    The Shelby County boys' track team competed in the Eastern Relays meet at Eastern High School over the weekend.

    SCHS head coach Jerry Lucas said his boys ran well, despite missing several runners due to the SCHS prom Saturday night.

    "It was a tough meet with great competition," he said. "We had several that had prom (Saturday) so we had to shift some people around in some events, but we got to run in the majority of the races."

  • Putting with 'Stonehands...

    There is nothing worse it seems, as beginning a golf season with a shaky putting game or with what I sometimes call "stonehands."

    For those of you golfers who don't know what the word "stonehands" means, I will keep it simple. However, for those of you who do know what I am talking about; I am sure you will find this topic very much hitting home.

  • Rockets bounce back to beat...

    SCHS head coach Bart Roettger used every adjective he could think of to describe the Rocket baseball team's play Tuesday against Bullitt East -- "lackadaisical, listless, dead, it was almost like our guys had a hangover from prom," he said.

    However, after a little post-game talking -- and running -- the Rockets came out with a fresh attitude and approach on Wednesday at Oldham County.

    Bullitt East beat Shelby 7-3, but the Rockets took a hard-fought game 9-8 against the Colonels.

  • Softball team goes young at...

    Due to the SCHS prom Saturday, the Lady Rocket softball team was forced to call up seven players from the freshman team for most of the Capital City Classic in Frankfort.

    However, that didn't dampen the team's results.

    The girls went 3-2 over the weekend, playing just one game with their full varsity roster.

  • Bitter rivals, now better buddies

    When Shelby County's Haleigh LeCompte stepped into the batter's box for the first time back on March 29, she knew the sounds coming from behind her.

    "Tiffany was talking," LeCompte says of Anderson County catcher Tiffany Davenport. "She was trying to get me to talk to her."

    If the grins on both faces were any indication, Davenport was successful.

    "The umpire said to me, 'I take it you know each other,'" Davenport says. "I told him, 'We are best friends.'"

  • Rockets look strong at LIT

    The SCHS baseball team went 1-2 in the Louisville Invitational Tournament, but head coach Bart Roettger said that record was deceiving.

    "It depends on how you look at it," he said. "You could say going 1-2 was disappointing, but at the same time I thought we played as well as we have all year."

  • Lady Rockets stretch win streak...

    The SCHS softball team put a stamp on their season this week, winning three-straight against a Monday, Tuesday Wednesday murderer's row.

    The girls hit the road Monday and topped Sacred Heart 5-1 in eight innings, then topped No. 13 Anderson County 10-9 on Tuesday and followed that with a 5-4 eight-inning win over No. 18 Oldham County Wednesday.

    The Lady Rockets, ranked No. 20, had to come back in all three games, showing this team has no quit.

  • Kentucky All-stars girls'...

    SCHS head girls' basketball coach Sally Zimmerman said she had never seen Raechele Gray so happy.

    "When I told her she had made the team, you'd think I'd given her a million dollars," Zimmerman said. "I was extremely pleased with her tryout. As her coach I wanted to talk to her, but I couldn't because of the tryouts. But she played really well, defended well getting a few steals, and she got in there and mixed it up getting some rebounds. She earned her spot on the team."

    Gray said just getting asked to the tryout was an honor, but making the team was a dream come true.
