  • Notebook: Hoptown's Henry...

    LEXINGTON – Hopkinsville's Demarius Henry could've fit right into a South Oldham jersey Wednesday afternoon.

    The Tiger guard was 5-of-9 from beyond the arc as Hoptown eliminated South 83-62 in the first round of the Whitaker Bank/KHSAA Boys Sweet 16 at Rupp Arena.

    Overall the Tigers (31-2) shot 7-of-17 on 3-pointers, matching the same number hit by South (7-of-29) on 12 fewer attempts.

    Henry set the tone for that shooting performance, hitting four 3's in the first quarter. He finished with 15 points.

  • Nine South seniors go out on top

    South Oldham’s senior class has been working toward this season for a long time.

    Seniors like Drew Greenwood, Jonathan Blair and Michael Griffin grew up playing on the same teams when they were in elementary school.

    The core group picked up new members along the way, like when Drew Bullock moved to town before sixth grade or when Kyle Young moved before eighth grade.

    Finally when Zach McWilliams transferred from North Oldham to South after his freshman year, the Class of ‘14 had the pieces in place to make a run when they were seniors.
