Three straight eight-win seasons has Ludlow reaching heights it hasn’t seen in decades. With five winning campaigns in the last six years this is arguably the best run in the history of the program.

“We are young but hungry to carry on the winning tradition. This is a close-knit group,” head coach Greg Taphouse states.

Ludlow is beating the teams they are supposed to. The next step is to not only be competitive versus their upper echelon foes (Beechwood, Newport Central Catholic, Lloyd, Frankfort, Holy Cross – Louisville) but come out victorious against them.
