After yesterday's news that Trent Erps had stepped down at Bowling Green we have more KY High School Coaching news. I have received confirmation that Danny DiSantis has stepped down from his coaching duties at Oldham County and they have hired Stephen Farrow. Also Sean Blue will not be leaving Ballard as rumors had it about a month ago. 

Danny DiSantis has stepped down from his coaching duties at Oldham County for the second time. Stephen Farrow will take over as the Colonels Head Coach in 2019. Farrow is the seventh Head Coach in Oldham County High School Lacrosse history.

DiSantis was the first coach in Colonels lacrosse history as he was the head coach during their inaugural season in 2010. He would return as the head coach at Oldham County in 2017 after the program had three different head coaches from 2011 to 2016. During the 2017 season DiSantis led the Colonels to a 6-12 season. In 2018 Oldham County went 8-9 and got knocked out of the playoffs in the first round of the District 4 tournament.

Farrow played in college at DIII Hanover college where he was a defensemen. Farrow is from Oldham County and went to Oldham County High School. From the looks of it this is a great hire as an alum always brings some energy and knowledge into the program from their own experiences. 

Oldham County is another place that has a ton of upside. The school hasn't been known for being amazing in athletics in the past but that has changed in recent years. Looking at the vibe and success that Coach Fox has brought to the Colonels football program as well as the basketball team making the Sweet 16 last year. I really think hope that Coach Farrow can bring the same thing to the lacrosse program within the next few years. 

Back in early summer we started to hear some rumors that Sean Blue would be stepping down as the head coach at Ballard. The Ballard athletic department had not heard anything from him yet so nothing was official. I can confirm that the rumors have not been true as Sean Blue will return as the head coach at Ballard in 2019. Blue and his Bruins will be looking to improve on a 7-10 season in which they lost in the first round of the KSLL state tournament to Christian Academy.
