Dixie, Newport Catholic, & Highlands Head to State Finals
Bryan Burke - The River City News
Northern Kentucky will send three teams to Kentucky High School Athletic Association (KHSAA) football title games next week. The region had five teams vying for spots across five different classes. Dixie Heights in Class 6A, Highlands in Class 4A, and Newport Central Catholic in Class 2A marched on, while Beechwood in Class 1A and Cooper in Class 5A came up short in the semifinals.

Dixie beats Ballard, will face powerhouse Trinity

Dixie is headed back the state championship. For Head Coach Dave Brossart, it is not a minute too soon. The Colonels’ overcame an early 7-0 deficit to Louisville Ballard, ultimately running away, 48-21 at Rice Mountjoy Stadium Friday night.

As a high school player at Beechwood, and as a high school coach, Brossart had not been fortunate enough to soak in the championship experience – until now. “It’s a tremendous moment. ... But this is about the kids and this is a great, great opportunity to be able to jump on the bus and be able to play a team like Louisville Trinity, who is a top-25 program in the country. It just says volumes about Dixie Heights,” he said.

The last roadblock to en-route to Bowling Green began a bit bumpy for the Colonels. Marching down the field on its first drive of the night, Ballard took advantage of a Dixie offsides penalty on fourth down, giving the Bruins a first down deep in Colonels’ territory. Junior Ryan Dawkins took a handoff from senior quarterback Kenshawn Washington in for a 7-0 lead, leaving the Colonels’ and their home crowd silent.
