  • South Oldham Team of the Year
    The 2013-14 Dragons embraced the motto of “New Team, Same Dream.” That dream came true in March when South Oldham reeled off three dramatic wins to claim a second straight Region 8 Tournament. Coach Steve Simpson’s South team lost just three regular season games and won the inaugural John Fendley Classic at home over Christmas break. The Dragons tripped up in the district title game, losing 74-67 to rival Oldham County.

  • Stephens: Coaches weigh in on World Cup
    At this time of year we’re usually starving for sports. The U.S. Open, Stanley Cup Final and NBA Finals all ended last weekend. The British Open is a few weeks away, college and pro football camps another few weeks past that. In most years all we’d have left are NASCAR and the Cincinnati Reds, currently making a charge just to get to .500. Luckily this is the one year in four where the sports calendar gives us the globe’s biggest sporting event to fill that summer void.
