    The Titans annihilated Anderson County 14-3 last Thursday, rallied for a 5-4 victory over South Oldham on Friday, routed Ryle 14-3 Saturday, then overcame a slow start to outlast Louisville Southern 9-6 Monday.

  • Moore perfect in win over...

    The Shelby County baseball team registered a pair of home victories – highlighted by Kipp Moore’s 5-inning perfect game – late last week before falling to an 8th Region rival Monday.

    The Rockets defeated Whitefield Academy 8-3 Thursday and Newport Central Catholic, behind Moore on the mound, 10-0 in five innings Friday. However visiting South Oldham’s 1-0 victory ended Shelby County’s seven-game win streak.

  • Rockets slip past Bearcats on...

    An unlikely ending to Thursday’s Anderson-Shelby baseball game left even loquacious Rockets Coach Bart “Rudy” Roettger speechless. Almost.

    “Wow! I have no words to explain that one,” said Roettger, who did offer some moments later.
