South Oldham

  • North boys hold on to beat South, win region
    SHELBYVILLE – North Oldham boys soccer was in a familiar position at halftime Thursday night. Just eight days before, North had led South 1-0 at halftime of the District 29 final. The Dragons roared back with three second half goals to win 3-1. The Mustangs were again up 1-0 Thursday in the championship game of the Region 8 tournament at Collins High School. Only this time, things ended differently than before.
  • North, South boys meet for fourth time tonight
    South Oldham was in a similar situation one year ago at this time. The Dragons had split their two regular season matchups with Oldham County and beaten the Colonels in the District 29 title. The teams met a fourth time in the Region 8 championship game, and South beat OC 2-0. This season South split two regular season games with North Oldham and beat the Mustangs 3-1 in last week's District 29 final. Now the Dragons will play North a fourth time, with everything on the line.

  • South facing defending 5A runner-up Friday
    South Oldham has a chance to create a good position for itself in the Class 5A District 5 race Friday. The Dragons (4-3, 2-0 District 5) will head north to Cooper (2-5, 0-2), attempting to keep an unblemished district record alive. But in order to leave Union with a 3-0 district record, South will have to take down an opponent it’s struggled against. “We’ve never beat Cooper,” coach Jamie Reed said. “We’ll need a good week of practice from everyone because it’ll be a tough game.”
  • SOHS Homecoming Queen
  • Dragons conquer Conner
    CRESTWOOD – Conner came to town Friday with the hype. The Cougars left town with a loss. South Oldham played maybe its best all-around game of the season, beating Conner 34-32 in its district opener at Dragon Stadium. “Everyone doubted us in the beginning and no one’s ever believed in us,” said quarterback Chase Lightfoot. “That’s just how South Oldham fights. We come out and fight every time.”
  • County title up for grabs
     North Oldham came within one point of repeating as county champs last season. The Mustangs had already beat Oldham County 16-10 and needed a win over South Oldham, a team it had beat four out of the five previous years, to win the unofficial county title. But South pulled off a dramatic 43-42 double overtime win over the Mustangs, taking the Oldham County crown for itself.
  • Oldham Cup a cool, classy event
     PROSPECT – You couldn’t ask for a better setting than the one found last Thursday afternoon at Nevel Meade Golf Course. The temperature was around 70 degrees, with a light breeze blowing throughout. The course was well manicured, from the smooth fairways to the rock waterfall guarding the sixth green. And all around the course was good competition. Players from North Oldham, Oldham County and South Oldham High Schools were playing in the Oldham Cup, an annual event pitting the county’s three schools against each other.
