  • Boys soccer: New position, same...

    Christian Lister’s been on the field for South Oldham’s varsity ever since he was a ninth-grader for the Dragons.

    Josh Maier saved some of his best golf for his final high school tournament last weekend.

    The North Oldham senior fired a 68 in the first round of the Leachman Buick-GMC-Cadillac/KHSAA State Tournament on Friday afternoon and Saturday morning, sitting alone in first place after the round.

    Maier was unable to replicate that magic Saturday afternoon, shooting a second-round 77 to finish with a 145 (+1).

    That put him in a tie with Lyon County freshman Cullan Brown for sixth place at Bowling Green Country Club.
