  • Rockets pick up two wins over weekend

    The Shelby County baseball team closed out its 4-1 record over the last week with a pair of victories and one loss, at the hands of Silver Creek, Ind. in the late afternoon on Saturday.

    “I thought we continued to swing the bat well, and we beat two quality teams in Franklin and Carroll,” Shelby coach Devin Hicks said. “Silver Creek has a heck of a team and hasn’t lost yet this season. We just never quite got on track in that one.”

  • Titans go 1-2 at Frankfort

    The Titans softball team ended the Capital City Showcase tournament 1-2, picking up a win over George Rogers Clark before falling to Pulaski County and Mercer County to close out the weekend.

    “We’re still not hitting the ball as consistently as we’d like,” Titans coach Charlie LeCompte said. “And we need to clean up our mistakes defensively if we want to put ourselves in a spot to win games.”
