  • KHSAA girls soccer state semifinal: Rowland free kick sends South to championship game

    LEXINGTON – No. 19 stood on the 19-yard line at Henry Clay’s Bell Stadium Wednesday night in a familiar position.

    Stephanie Rowland, South Oldham’s all-time leading goal scorer, had hit plenty of free kicks over the years, some from long distance.

    But none had ever come in a match this big – a KHSAA state semifinal against No. 2 Notre Dame with a trip to the state championship game on the line.

    Standing about five yards left of the left football hash mark, Rowland ran up and belted the ball high to the right.

  • KHSAA volleyball tournament: Foote family leads North into showdown with Mercy

    When Brett Versen took the North Oldham coaching job this spring, one of the first conversations he had with athletic director Alan Yanke was about the current roster.

    “When I took the job,” Versen recalled, “our athletic director said, ‘Hey, you’ve got the Foote family so that’s always a good place to start.’”

  • KHSAA boys soccer semifinals: South, Scott to square off

    One of South Oldham’s team mottos is “to be proud, but not satisfied.”

    That’s how the Dragons said they were approaching preparations for a KHSAA state semifinal match against Scott. Kickoff is 6 p.m. Thursday at Henry Clay’s Bell Stadium in Lexington.

    “We’ve been talking since freshman year about how a state championship was our goal and that this year was our year,” senior midfielder Nathan Roshelli said. “We’re not going to be happy unless we win state. Senior year, we want to go out on top.”

  • Feeley easily re-elected as Family Court judge

    It most certainly felt like déjà vu when Timothy E. Feeley defeated Michael Pate for the position of Circuit Judge in the 12th Judicial Circuit Tuesday night.

    Feeley also defeated Pate, a long-time family law attorney, in 2006.

    “I want to thank the voters for their confidence in me once again,” Feeley told the Era.

    Feeley has been Family Court Judge for Oldham, Henry and Trimble Counties since 2005. He said he has seen over 15,000 cases in his nine and a half years as judge.

  • Davenport elected La Grange Mayor

    La Grange will have its third mayor in as many terms come January, but a familiar face will occupy the office.

    Longtime councilman Joe Davenport defeated Brian Oerther, 57 to 42 percent, to take the helm of Oldham County’s largest city, with 84 percent of the city turning out to vote in the race.

    The race was a referendum on several recent city council votes, including the occupational tax, which Oerther opposed. But voters decided to stick with Davenport over Oerther, who pegged himself as “outside the box” when it came to ideas for the city.
