  • KHSAA Class 5-A Football Playoffs: Mistakes end South's season
    CRESTWOOD – Fumbles, blown coverages and a special teams letdown – they all added up to be too much for South Oldham to overcome Friday night. Anderson County beat South 42-38 at Dragon Stadium in the second round of the KHSAA Class 5-A football playoffs thanks to a collection of self-inflicted Dragon wounds. South (8-3) out-gained the Bearcats (9-3) 549-382 but lost four fumbles, allowed several long passes and gave up touchdowns on a fumble return and a blocked punt return.

  • Stephens: State title win a throwback for Lady Dragons
    LEXINGTON – There was some 19-year-old nostalgia for South Oldham girls soccer coach Cy Tucker last week. In 1995, he took the Lady Dragons to play in the school’s first KHSAA girls soccer championship game. South beat Tates Creek that year to win the title. This year he took his Lady Dragons to Henry Clay’s Bell Stadium to try for their record seventh state title, but first in 13 years.

  • 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.”

South topped an undefeated Fern Creek team in the first round of the KHSAA State Tournament and then whipped Rowan County to advance to its first state semifinal in school history.
