Drew Greenwood, baseball and basketball

By Brad Stephens

Drew Greenwood finished off a distinguished multi-sport South Oldham career with big seasons on the hard court and the diamond.

Greenwood was a starting guard on South’s Region 8 champion boys basketball team, scoring 10.3 points per game.

In addition to being the team’s third-highest scorer, Greenwood was the Dragons’ second-best rebounder, averaging 4.9 boards per game.

Greenwood came up with big performances in big games. He scored 25 points, hitting five 3-pointers, as South beat Jeffersontown 107-104 in double overtime in the semifinals of the John Fendley Classic.

He had 16 points on senior night as the Dragons won a tight 74-71 game against Woodford County.

And in the region championship game against Simon Kenton, Greenwood scored a team-high 16 points.

He scored three baskets off offensive rebounds against the Pioneers, with each of those scores breaking a tie to give South the lead.

Then during baseball season Greenwood turned in a year that helped him earn co-district player of the year honors.
