  • Nine South seniors go out on top
    South Oldham’s senior class has been working toward this season for a long time. Seniors like Drew Greenwood, Jonathan Blair and Michael Griffin grew up playing on the same teams when they were in elementary school. The core group picked up new members along the way, like when Drew Bullock moved to town before sixth grade or when Kyle Young moved before eighth grade. Finally when Zach McWilliams transferred from North Oldham to South after his freshman year, the Class of ‘14 had the pieces in place to make a run when they were seniors.
