    When South Oldham coach Steve Simpson started the team’s Christmas break tournament last year, he wanted to name the event each year after a different person who was important to the school.

The Dragons and seven other teams will compete this weekend in the Coach Bob Classic, named for South assistant Bob Simpson.
