  • Rockets shine in gridiron All-...

    Four members of the SCHS football team were selected to play in the Greater Louisville Football Coaches Association East/West All-star game last weekend.

    The Rockets suited up on the East squad and all four players had standout games.

    SCHS head coach Todd Shipley and offensive coordinator Jerry Lucas coached the East offense, and quarterback Alex Matthews and wide receiver Jordan Burk took full advantage of being familiar with the system.

  • Shelby stifles Lady Eagles, 45-37

    Just three days after allowing Mercy to score 85 points, the Lady Rockets' defense forced Eastern into 26 turnovers and held the Lady Eagles to just 37 points in a 45-37 win Monday.

    The defense was the star of the show as the Lady Rocket offense struggled to find any rhythm, shooting just 25 percent.

  • Rockets set to open play in...

    The Shelby County Rockets will face Grant County tonight at 8 in the first round of the Baptist Northeast Henry County Invitational.

    Shelby will get a good look at several region opponents in the tournament. The Rockets will face either Henry County or Oldham County in the second game, and Spencer County and South Oldham are in the other half of the bracket.

    However, the main reason for the Rockets, and the other 8th Region members to play in the Henry Invitational is to get used to Henry County's gym.

  • Rockets hammer Bullitt East

    The Shelby County Rockets appeared to come to form Tuesday against old region rival Bullitt East.

    The Rockets (3-0) raced out to a 13-2 lead behind three pointers from Alex Shehan, Tim Sanford and Donovan Johnson and never looked back. Shelby County outscored the visiting Chargers (3-1) 24-9 in the first quarter and 24-10 in the second, coasting to an 84-55 win.

  • First Lady Rocket Invitational...

    The Lady Rockets will not have to travel for their first holiday tournament this season.

    Normally the Lady Rockets head off to other parts of the state to face some of the state's top teams over the holiday break, but this year's teams will come to the Lady Rockets.

    The school will host the first Max Performance Lady Rocket Invitational starting Wednesday, and there will be plenty to see.

  • Lady Rockets top Scott County,...

    The Lady Rockets scored a big win while knocking off a perennial rival Friday.

    The girls held off Scott County -- a preseason top 10 team -- over the closing minute to grab a 63-59 road win.

    Raechele Gray led the way with 31 points to top all scorers, but it was Haleigh LeCompte's two three pointers in the final 1:40 of the game that put the Lady Rockets over the top.

  • Guadalupe students race through...

    Caterina and Gabriella Karas, students at Our Lady of Guadalupe Academy in Simpsonville, ran through the competition at local, district and state AAU cross country competitions and earned the chance to compete at the national AAU meet on Dec. 1.

    Caterina, an eighth-grader, finished 18th and Gabriella, a third-grader, took 15th in their respective age groups at the national meet on Dec. 1 in Virginia Beach, Va.

    While both sisters were the Louisville city champs in their age groups, Caterina said she was not so sure she made the national meet.

  • AquaRockets continue to improve...

    The Shelby County High School swim team was no match for the size of Scott County's team, but the AquaRockets had quality against the quantity of the Cardinals.

    "We expected to lose because Scott County had about twice as many swimmers as we did (Wednesday), but I was ecstatic with how our kids swam," SCHS head coach Jeremiah Heath said. "We had a bunch of best times and the kids swam very well."

    Heath noted that several swimmers swam personal best times, and pointed out a few that really stood out.

  • Lady Rockets upset Scott County...

    The Shelby County girls' basketball team beat Scott County 63-59 Friday for the team's first win over the Lady Cardinals since 2005.

    Raechele Gray led all scorers with 31 points, but it was Haleigh LeCompte's two big three pointers with less than two minutes to play in the fourth quarter that gave the Lady Rockets' the lead for good.

    LeCompte finished with 15 points, and Jennica Garitty added four points and 23 rebounds to help pace Shelby County.

    For a full recap of the game see Wednesday's Sentinel-News.

  • Rockets open season with a bang

    The Shelby County boys' basketball team got the season underway with a 75-65 win over the visiting Seneca Redhawks Tuesday.

    SCHS head coach Mike Clark said his team progressed as the game went on, pushing the lead out in the second and third quarters.

    "I thought we played extremely hard," he said. "I was surprised that we were able to handle their full court press as well as we did, and that we shot so well from the field (53 percent for the game)."

    Clark said his sophomore point guard tandem of Cache Tomlinson and Boomer Beckley handled Seneca's pressure very well.
