  • The Matchup: Connor John
    The spring of 2013 was a time Connor John’s life changed on and off the football field. His family moved from Southington, Conn., where he’d lived since fourth grade, to Crestwood for his father’s job. Suddenly John was a sophomore at South Oldham, a place where he didn’t know anyone. He adapted to his new surroundings by playing football. “When I first moved here it sucked,” John said. “You miss your friends, you miss what you used to know.
  • Girls soccer: Rowland nets hat trick, South cruises past Anderson
    CRESTWOOD – Stephanie Rowland scored three goals Wednesday night and made each one look easier than the last. The senior forward got a hat trick on her Senior Night and her teammates added two more goals as the Lady Dragons notched an uneventful 5-0 win against Anderson County. No. 8 South (10-2) has scored five goals in each of its last two games (including a 5-1 win at Nelson County Monday night) after losing 8-4 at No. 3 West Jessamine on Saturday – a loss that broke an eight-match winning streak.

That combination added up to a 3-0 South win on a chilly night at Dragon Stadium. Tuesday’s win marked the Dragons’ first shutout of the Colonels in six years.

    CRESTWOOD – North Oldham and South Oldham needed an extra 10 minutes to decide their field hockey match Monday night in the mist at Dragon Stadium. When the 10-minute overtime wasn’t enough to break a 2-2 deadlock, the teams went into penalty strokes. Lady Mustangs Charlie McCauley and Madison Cobb converted their strokes and goalie Sarah Foye didn’t allow a Lady Dragon to score, giving North a 2-0 advantage and a 3-2 win over its county rival.

Junior Sammy Griffin led OC with an 18th place finish, running the three laps in 20:36.53. “I’m always so proud of the team,” Griffin said. “…I think everybody did well.”
  • Boys cross-country: Fryman wins Rumble at home course

Fryman broke through Saturday, winning the boys 5K at the Rumble, an annual meet North hosts at Creasey Mahan Nature Preserve. Fryman passed Madison Central’s Brennan Fields on the final of three laps to finish first with a time of 16:08.33. Fields (16:11.47) was second, followed by third-place Tanner Dowdy of South Oldham (16:26.40).
  • Football: Thompson does it all in South rout
    BUCKNER – Something good happened for South Oldham seemingly every time Starr Thompson touched the ball Friday night. The junior wingback ran for, threw for and caught a touchdown. He added an interception while playing cornerback. Thompson set the tone as Class 5A No. 6 South rolled to its fourth straight win over rival Oldham County, 42-7 on the road at Bell Field.
