    Walking off the field after Monday night’s state tournament game, the Oldham County Lady Colonels couldn’t help but smile.

    On the soccer field, Brittany Moshos and Stephanie Rowland couldn’t be any more different.

    Despite their differences, the duo does have one very important thing in common — they’re very good at what they do.

  • South Oldham falls 3-0 to St. X...

    For the better part of the 2012 season, South Oldham boys' soccer team just seemed to find themselves in the right places at the right times. As a result, a team that started the season hobbled by injuries, reeled off an impressive run en route to both a 29th district regular season and tournament championship and a unmatched march through 8th Region tournament play. But like all good things, it came to an end Tuesday night with a 3-0 loss to No. 1 St. Xavier in the state tournament opener.

    For nearly a year, the North Oldham Mustangs shouldered the weight of being the defending 8th Region champions. And for nearly a year, they waited for the chance to make it back to state. Thursday night, that's exactly what they did, knocking out Simon Kenton 3-1 in the regional final.
    "The thing we told them at the beginning of the season is that everybody wants to beat you," coach Brian Jones said. "So it's nice to come out on top as the 8th Region champs. It feels really nice."
