High school highlights

        There's a new queen of Kentucky high school girls' soccer — at least for now.

        Notre Dame, ranked second in the coaches poll, knocked off two-time defending state champion and top-ranked South Oldham 2-1 in overtime last night behind a pair of goals from striker Kelley Schabell.

        “For one day — and it took 90 minutes — we're No.1,” Notre Dame coach Tim Prieshoff said. “We did it for 90 minutes here, but these are two nice teams, and there's others out there.”

        The Pandas (4-0) downed South Oldham (3-1), which has won four of the past five state titles, after losing to the same team 3-0 in last year's state finals. South Oldham beat Notre Dame 1-0 in the 1998 state semifinals.

        “This is nice, revenge,” Schabell said. “... We just wanted to prove that we can do it.”

        BOYS SOCCER: After starting the season with losses to Turpin and Dayton Carroll, the Fairfield boys soccer team came up big Wednesday against No.2 Moeller.

        A goal by Nick Carovillano off an assist by Chad Huber with 15 minutes remaining enabled the Indians to tie the Crusaders 1-1 at Fairfield.

        GIRLS GOLF: The St. Ursula golf team shot a school-record 153 on the front nine at Reeves Golf Course in a tri-match against Oak Hills and Seton.

        Molly Smyth (St.Ursula) and Jen Irwin (Oak Hills) shared medalist honors with 1-under-par 34s. Sarah Herman shot a personal-best 38 for the Bulldogs.

        “The previous record was 154 in 1997 at Reeves,” St. Ursula coach Tony Kountz said. “It helps when Molly plays against good competition. It presses her to play better.”
