  • KHSAA girls soccer state championship: Rowland scores four, Lady Dragons win seventh title

    LEXINGTON – Coach Cy Tucker said the 2014 South Oldham Lady Dragons’ season was like a great novel that “you didn’t want to end.”

    The final chapter of that novel proved to be happy, if perhaps a little anticlimactic.

    Senior forward Stephanie Rowland scored four goals to power South past Owensboro Catholic 4-1 Saturday night in the KHSAA Girls Soccer State Championship Game at Henry Clay’s Bell Stadium.

    The Lady Dragons’ state title was their state-best seventh overall but first since 2001.

    LEXINGTON – Cole and Tanner Dowdy each ran a stellar race Saturday in the KHSAA Class 3-A Boys State Cross-Country Championships.

    But their most memorable run of the day may have come after the race ended.

    The twins were standing around their father when he pulled out his phone to see if race results had been posted.

    “He was like ‘We won!’ and jumped up and down,” Cole Dowdy said. “I was so surprised. I was taken aback. We went running through the crowd to find our team and we told them.”

    LEXINGTON – North Oldham got a ring for its thumb Saturday. And this title came thanks to its most impressive performance yet.

    The Mustangs totaled 49 points in winning their fifth straight KHSAA Class 2-A Cross-Country State Championship at the Kentucky Horse Park.

    Webster County (96) was a distant second, followed by Highlands (110), Shelby County (185) and Covington Catholic (196).

    The 49-point performance bested even North’s own expectations, coach David St. Louis said.

    LOUISVILLE – Having won two of its last three regular season games, Oldham County was hoping to shock the world with an upset in the first round of the KHSAA Class 6-A playoffs Friday night.

    Pleasure Ridge Park had other plans.

    The Panthers (6-4) ran up and down the field on an OC squad that was flat from the opening kickoff. PRP scored on its first six possessions, either by a long touchdown run or a short one set up by a longer play, racing off to a 42-7 victory over the Colonels (3-8).

    LOUISVILLE – Playing the No. 1 team in the state, North Oldham had a chance to blow up the bracket Friday in the first round of the KHSAA Volleyball State Tournament.

    The Lady Mustangs instead, in the words of coach Brett Versen, “came out flat” and paid the price.

    Top-ranked Mercy swept No. 12 North 25-11, 25-16, 25-16 at Valley’s J.C. Cantrell Gymnasium, ending the Lady Mustangs’ season in a match that took just 1 hour, 1 minute.
