  • North, South Oldham boys' basketball prepare for district showdown

    While an edge in matchups doesn’t always equate to success on the basketball court, I’ve broken down the positional battles to watch as North and South Oldham return to the floor for their second meeting of the season. Unlike their last meeting, this one has district title implications on the line.

  • Levitch breaks scoring record with 1,411 points

    On Dec. 4, 2009, David Levitch walked onto the court for his first game as a North Oldham Mustang.
    Later this year, when he walks off for the final time, he’ll have accomplished quite a lot during those four years.
    Chief among those is rewriting the North Oldham record book.
    His latest addendum came over the winter break as Levitch’s 25 point outburst against Tates Creek moved him to the top of the all-time scoring list.
    The previous record holder was Alex Foley with 1,410 points.

  • North Oldham upends OC

    Heading into the 2012-13 season, North Oldham basketball coach Chris Stobaugh knew a team would eventually succeed in stopping David Levitch.
    He also knew that his team could continue playing at a high level in that situation as long as another player stepped up.
    Check and check.
    Though Oldham County held Levitch well below his season average on Jan. 11, the Mustangs got plenty of help from junior sharp shooter Trevor Burton to pull off an emotional 49-36 win.

  • Colonels knock off Trinity, Spencer Co.

    It came down to the two of their final wrestlers but Oldham County managed to knock off No. 11 Trinity High School 35-34 Jan. 12 for their second win in as many meets.
    After picking up an early lead on a 7-3 John Shirkey decision and a pin by Connor Wilkerson, the Colonels grappled with Trinity for the next eight weight classes, trading the lead multiple times. That set up a heroic final push from the Colonels as a pin from Alex Meyers in the 220-pound class put them in position to steal the meet with a pin by Brady Emerson.

  • The Art of Basketball: South Oldham’s Shae Goodlett is breaking the mold of what it means to be a jock

    On the basketball court, Shae Goodlett is as intense a player as you can find.
    Off it though, he has a slightly softer side.
    Goodlett, a center for South Oldham known for his grit and intensity, is also an artist.
    Not just any artist though — a cartoonist.
