  • Rockets’ attitudes...

    Many looked at last Friday’s Shelby/South Oldham game as two mirror image teams, but that wasn’t the case.

    If you watched the opening quarter, or even just the opening drive, you could tell easily the difference between these two teams.

    Though both were 0-8, one was determined to get that first victory while the other was just going through the motions.

    Shelby County, with a winless record, was quick on its collective feet, hard-hitting, strong-willed and ready to play football.

  • Ready for next year

    The SCHS football team was already young when this season started, then the Rockets lost several players early on to injuries.

    Most of those players returned by the end of year, but Shelby County never recovered from the loss of quarterback Branden Cresap for the season and several others for key games.

    However, despite finishing this year with a 1-10 record, the staff and players are already preparing for next season.

    The boys' squad rested most of itsr top runners to begin training for the regional and state meets but still managed a 10th-place finish in the 16-team Class 3A field.

  • Wiley makes it official

    Shelby County golfer Candice Wiley made her commitment official on Friday, signing her letter-of-intent to play golf for the University of Louisville next year.

    “U of L was an instant fit,” she said. “It’s a top academic school, a great team, and I knew from the start that I wanted to be a part of a fast-growing U of L women’s golf team.”

    Wiley has been a major player on the state scene for a long time.

  • Oldham too much for Shelby

    Shelby County got down early and couldn't recover in a 3-0 loss to Oldham County in the 8th Region Championship at Oldham County on Wednesday.

    Oldham's Jacob Kemper took a pass from Shawn Parker and lofted a shot over SCHS keeper David Breen and into the side net for a 1-0 lead less than 40 seconds into the first half, forcing the Rockets to play from behind all night.

    "We just weren't sharp coming out of the gate," SCHS Coach B.J. Andriot said. "You can't give him [Kemper] a look from anywhere, because he'll take it."

  • 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 at 7 o'clock.

  • Karas raising the bar

    SCHS cross-country coach Slone Barnett said she knew freshman Caterina Karas was pretty good.

    Barnett had watched her in practice, and Karas' old coach had called before the season, telling her a little about the Rockets' new runner. But Barnett said she had no idea what she really had until the first race.

  • Bearcats slip past Rockets

    A controversial foul call led to two Anderson County free throws with less than five seconds remaining in the game, sealing a 46-42 win over the visiting Rockets in Saturday's annual 30th District grudge match.

    Shelby County led 21-20 at the break, but Anderson County took the lead early in the third quarter, forcing Shelby to play catchup throughout the second half.
