  • Boys soccer: South pleases big...

    CRESTWOOD – As the clock ticked down Wednesday night a South Oldham administrator stood in front of the entrance of a packed student section.

    He allowed one student to go out and remove two metal barricades separating the rubber track at Dragon Stadium from the turf field.

  • Football: South dancing into...

    CRESTWOOD – South Oldham football will waltz into a Top 10 dance Friday night looking to swing with the partner it took.

    “Dance with the girl we’ve brought” has been a motto for South coaches this season.

    In past years the Dragons have gotten too creative in game planning for individual teams to the point that it becomes a detriment, coach Jamie Reed said.

    This year South, ranked No. 7 in Class 5A by the Associated Press and coming off a win against Collins, is sticking with what it does best – running the ball.
