  • Furious North comeback leads to OT win

    GOSHEN – There wasn’t much hope for North Oldham with four minutes to play Tuesday night.

    The Mustangs trailed North Hardin 60-44. They’d scored just eight points in the second half, struggling with turnovers, shooting and rebounding.

    But a Jon Jon Henry basket and free throws led to a Chris Burton three. That led to a Henry three and a Trevor Burton 3-point play.

    In just a few possessions, North Oldham got back in the game.

  • South takes care of Trimble

    BEDFORD – South Oldham has woken up.

    Kyle Young scored 26 points Monday as the Dragons ran past overmatched Trimble County 93-40. The win was South’s second straight after a disappointing 60-42 loss to Collins Dec. 9 in the team’s home opener.

  • Lady Dragons fall to Highlands for first loss of year

    CRESTWOOD – South Oldham finally slipped on its tough early season schedule Saturday.

    Highlands’ Brianna Adler scored 19 points as the Bluebirds beat the Lady Dragons 57-47 Saturday, marking South’s first loss of the season.

    The Lady Dragons (2-1) were playing without starting point guard Abbey VanZant, who suffered a concussion Wednesday in a win over Floyd Central (Ind.). South coach Christy Higdon said she expects VanZant to return for the Lady Dragons’ next game, Wednesday at Gallatin County.

  • Oldham sweeps Trimble

    BUCKNER – Both Oldham County teams came out victorious against district foe Trimble County Friday, but they did so in far different fashions.

    The Lady Colonels clawed back from a 36-15 halftime deficit before Ashley McMurtrey hit the game-winning free throw in a 57-56 OC win in the girls’ game.

    Meanwhile the boys had a less stressful evening, taking care of Trimble 70-30. Both teams are 1-0 now in District 29 play.

  • Male buzzer-beater sinks North

    GOSHEN – Four and six-tenths seconds was all Brandon Horne needed to drive a stake through North Oldham’s comeback chances Wednesday night.

    The Male guard took an inbounds pass at three-quarters court and drove straight to the basket, hitting the winning layup as time expired in a 46-44 Bulldog win at North.

    Horne’s buzzer-beater undid an otherwise solid Mustang second-half effort. North (0-2), which scored just 14 first-half points, out-paced Male 30-22 over the final 16 minutes.

  • Paul talks economic zones, health care during La Grange visit

     

    Standing in one of the wealthiest counties in Kentucky, U.S. Sen. Rand Paul pitched his latest policy initiative last week that aims to help impoverished areas pull themselves up by their bootstraps.

    Paul, a Republican who has expressed an interest in running for president in 2016, is promoting the idea of economic freedom zones for struggling cities and counties across the U.S.

    It’s an idea first proposed by former Congressman Jack Kemp, who also ran for president and vice president as a Republican, but slightly modified by Paul.

    Snow, sleet and ice blanketed the region from Friday morning to Tuesday, canceling school twice and causing multiple wrecks on Interstate 71 and elsewhere.
