  • Colonels earn landmark win vs. North

    BUCKNER – Oldham County’s Chad Szczublewski was going through warmups Monday night before the Colonels’ game against North Oldham when he noticed the sidewall on his stick was broken.

  • Two-run bunt the big play as South sweeps North

    CRESTWOOD – In a series where runs have been hard to come by, South Oldham won by manufacturing a couple of them Thursday night.

  • Macht's four goals lead South past OC

    Macht scored a game-high four goals and the Dragons notched a 13-5 home win over Oldham County.

    Macht and South’s other seniors have still never lost to the Colonels during their high school careers.

    “You always like to keep a streak alive and go out with a win,” Macht said.

  • Westport residents concerned about eroding road conditions

    After a particularly cold and wet winter and early spring, Westport residents are concerned their lifeline to the rest of the county may be impacted beyond repair.

    State Highway 524 is the main road into and out of the city of Westport, tucked in the northwest part of Oldham County. And currently the road and the terrain around it are in terrible shape, residents said.

    “On the uphill side, it’s the worst it’s ever been since I’ve been here,” Stephen Davis, a resident since 1995, said.
