  • Rockets hold on for win at Henry...

    Solid 3-point shooting saved Shelby County on an inconsistent defensive night, as the Rockets won 58-47 at Henry County Tuesday night.

    The Rockets hit seven threes, including three from Boomer Beckley, in the first half to lead 35-24 at halftime. But the third quarter saw the Wildcats out-score Shelby 13-5 and trim the lead to 40-37.

    Cache Tomlinson gave his team some much-needed breathing room early in the fourth with two threes. A couple steals helped stop the Wildcats, who found it all to easy to pull the Rocket defense out of the lane for an easy bucket.

  • Local elk hunt on air this week

    Shelby County’s Kathy Smith will make her television debut this week on Huntin’ The World Southern Style on the Outdoor Channel.

    Smith filmed the show last October after she was selected in Kentucky’s lottery for elk tags. Not only did Smith receive one of just 1,000 elk tags, but her tag was also one of just 250 bull tags.

    After spending a day hunting with the show, Smith bagged a bull that weighed in at more than 800 pounds, field dressed, and was more than 9-feet long.

  • Rockets' 31-point second...

    GOSHEN -- The Rockets rebounded from an early deficit to defeat North Oldham 84-75 Friday night.

    It was an emotionally charged game before it started, with North Oldham fans taunting almost-Mustang Darryl Hicks. But Hicks shook it off, and the freshman rode that intensity to 21 points and 10 rebounds.

    Three more Rockets scored in double digits: Boomer Beckley, Cache Tomlinson and Donovan Johnson. Johnson also had a double-double with 18 points, 11 rebounds.

  • Elk hunt turns into TV show

    Kathy Smith was pretty lucky to get one of the 1,000 elk hunt tags state game officials distributed this year.

    As one of about 46,000 to apply for the tag, things were already looking up. But the fact that she was one of just 250 to get a tag for a bull was even luckier.  

  • EARLIER: Rockets top Wolverines...

    The Rockets ran their man-to-man, full-court press to near perfection in the first half against visiting Western Hills (7-6) Tuesday night.

    Shelby (11-3) used the many turnovers and baskets off the press to defeat the Wolverines, 74-56.

    "We try to get a lot of pressure up on guards that can't dribble," said Rocket Boomer Beckley, who finished with 17 points. "They were kind of shaky with the ball, so we felt like we could press them real hard."

  • Memphis thumps Shelby 70-36

    FAIRDALE -- Shelby County hung with Memphis (Tenn.) Central for six minutes Tuesday afternoon. The Rockets even led for about 20 seconds, 9-7, when Eric Standefer scored inside.

    But after that it was a humbling mismatch of a game, as Memphis went on to pummel Shelby, 70-36, in the fifth-place game of the King of the Bluegrass Holiday Classic.
