  • Cross Country: Beat up Lady...

    Despite being down two runners and have several banged up girls competing, the SCHS girls’ cross-country team had a strong showing Saturday at the SCHS Invitational at East Middle School.

    Taylor Webb played 12th out of 125 runners with a time of 20:49 to lead Shelby County to a 10th-place finish out of 16 teams.

    “Taylor ran a very fine race in a quality field,” Coach Brian Crumbo said. “She ran faster [on Shelby’s hilly course] than on the flat course at the Tiger Run [20:54], so that is big plus.”

  • Cross Country: Depleted Rockets...

    Running without four of the team's top seven, the SCHS boys' cross-country team placed ninth out of 17 teams Saturday in the Shelby County Invitational at East Middle School.

    "You always hope to do well in your home meet, but it just wasn't going to happen for us this time," SCHS Coach Randall McDowell said.

    Though he said he knew challenging two-time meet champion Butler and Butler’s Darius Berry, the individual winner, would be nearly impossible, McDowell said he was hoping for better results.

  • Golf: Rockets drop first match

    The SCHS boys’ golf team dropped its first match of the season Thursday, a 145-161 loss at home to Scott County.

    “They’re a very, very good team,” SCHS Coach Michael Griffin said. “The Scott County team total was only 1 over par, and they were led by two seniors, Kyle Wilshire with a 3-under 33 and Adam Venci with a 1-under 35.”

    Junior Josh Griffin led the Rockets with an even-par 36. Rounding out the varsity squad was Tayler Adams with a 40, Turner Mayton with a 41, Jared Redmon with a 44 and Josh Kuhn with a 46.

  • Soccer: John Hardin shocks...

    The SCHS boys’ soccer team struggled Saturday, getting upset by visiting John Hardin, 3-2.

    The Bulldogs (5-2) took a 2-0 lead in the first half with two counter-attack goals that caught SCHS (3-2-2) sleeping.

    “We started out awesome,” SCHS Coach B.J. Andriot said. “Our possession was great, it was one-two touch all over the field. But our defense was flat-footed just watching.”

  • Rockets, Male come out even

    Playing one of the state’s top teams is a challenge. Playing one of the state’s top teams the night after playing a previously undefeated region opponent is a little crazy.

    But the Rockets did just that.

    The SCHS boys’ soccer team (3-1-2) dominated Eastern, 3-0, Tuesday and then turned around and played even with preseason No. 1 Male (3-2-1) in a scoreless tie on Wednesday.

    With those two games the Rockets proved they are a force to be reckoned with not only in the region but on the state level as well.

    The JV team also remained undefeated, hammering Manual, 175-218. Jack Albrecht led the JV squad with a 39.

    The Rockets will be back in action Saturday in the Central Kentucky Conference tournament at Canewood Golf Course in Georgetown.

  • EARLIER: Bryan Station runs over...

    Bryan Station, and especially running back Tevin McCaden, proved to be too much for the SCHS football team Friday.

    McCaden had 37 carries for 272 yards – 162 coming in the second half – and four touchdowns to lead the Defenders to a 38-26 victory.

    “He’s a good back, and he finds holes,” SCHS Coach Todd Shipley said. “He has tremendous cutback ability.

  • Rockets struggle at Prestonsburg

    The SCHS boys’ golf team finished 12th out of 17 teams at the Prestonsburg High School Invitational on Saturday at Stonecrest Golf Course.

    The Rockets fired a 351 for the 18-hole tournament. Lexington Christian was first with a 302.

    Josh Griffin led the Rockets with an 80, finishing 30th overall, but knocked himself out of the top 10 with five penalty strokes in his round.

    Turner Mayton and Josh Kuhn played their first 18-hole tournaments for the Rockets, and both fared well, finishing tied for 59th and 69th, respectively.

  • EARLIER: Rockets roll in first...

    There were a few questions that SCHS Coach Todd Shipley wanted answered when the Rockets took the field against Lafayette on Friday at Dunbar in the football team’s first scrimmage.

    After a 28-0 varsity victory, 42-0 including the JV score, Shipley was pleased with all his answers.

    The first question revolved around the Rockets’ psyche coming off last year’s 1-10 finish.
