  • Christensen, Dotterweich take Grand Slam crowns

    Nate Dotterweich and Melissa Christensen took home commemorative Louisville Slugger bats last month after clinching the male and female Oldham County Grand Slam championships.

    The OC Grand Slam is made up of four 5K’s run throughout the year. The Apple Patch 5K on Sept. 20 was the grand finale.
    Dotterweich ran the four races in 1:11:56.

    Rounding out the men’s top five were Mike Leghart (1:13:25), Jim Durham (1:27:27), Tim Alvey (1:30:06) and Roberto Ramirez (1:36:23).

  • Girls soccer: North tops South, finishes county sweep

    CRESTWOOD – Playing in a district with Oldham County and South Oldham, North Oldham’s girls have been overshadowed in the past.

    The Lady Mustangs have sat and watched as the Lady Colonels and Lady Dragons both represented their district in the Region 8 Tournament in 2011, 2012 and 2013.

    North stopped that trend over the last week.

    The Lady Mustangs won 1-0 at South on Monday night at Dragon Stadium, four nights after beating OC 2-1 in Goshen.

  • Football: Padgett leads Conner past South

    Conner quarterback Kyler Padgett threw for 143 yards and a touchdown and ran for 123 yards and two more TD’s Friday in leading the Cougars to a 27-21 win over South Oldham in Hebron.

    The Dragons (3-2, 0-1 Class 5-A, District 5) have now lost two straight games after winning their first three.

    South quarterback Michael McGee was 15-of-29 for 198 yards with two touchdowns and three interceptions against Conner (1-4, 1-0). McGee also ran for a touchdown.

    Keanan John and Jackson Skeeters each hauled in touchdown passes.

  • Stephens: Wildcats showcase defense in low-scoring win

    LEXINGTON – The University of Kentucky’s 17-7 win against Vanderbilt on Saturday wasn’t easy on the eye.

    Unless, of course, you’re a former defensive back, defensive position coach and defensive coordinator like UK coach Mark Stoops.

    “That was a thing of beauty,” Stoops facetiously said as he opened his postgame press conference. “For a defensive guy, it was.”

  • Football: Bullitt East handles OC

    Konnor Polson threw for 192 yards and four touchdowns and ran for 44 yards in leading Bullitt East to a 44-21 win over Oldham County Friday night in Buckner.

    The Chargers led 10-7 after the first quarter but took the game over in the second, scoring 27 points to take a 37-7 lead into halftime.

    Colonel quarterback James Harding was 14-of-39 for 185 yards with two touchdown passes and one interception.

    OC receiver Allan Farrow hauled in three passes for 87 yards and a touchdown. Justin Viar had six catches for 48 yards and a score.

  • Football: Mustangs blow chances, drop district opener

    TAYLORSVILLE – Several missed opportunities to score turned into one big missed opportunity for North Oldham to score a road win in its district opener.

    The Mustangs left 14 points on the field at Spencer County and lost 21-13 to the Bears Friday night in their first district game.

    Class 4-A, No. 7 North (3-2) missed two field goals and an extra point. The Mustangs also came away empty on a 1st and goal chance from the Spencer 1-yard line late in the first quarter.

  • Girls soccer: Youngsters step up, North beats OC in PK's

    GOSHEN – Freshmen and sophomores didn’t play like inexperienced players for North Oldham on Sept. 25.

    As a result, a young Lady Mustang squad got its first win over cross-town rival Oldham County in nearly eight years.

    Sophomore Emma Boyd tied the match with a late penalty kick and hit another during a shootout. Freshman goalkeeper Katelyn Kellogg saved two OC shots during that penalty shootout, including the one that clinched a 3-2 shootout edge and 2-1 victory.

  • Football: North, South start district play

    Class 5A No. 6 South (3-1) will start the defense of its 2013 District 5 crown when it goes to Hebron to take on Conner (0-4) at 7:30 Friday night.

  • Old-fashioned obituary for modern mom

    Several years ago, I was given my great-grandmother’s scrapbooks. They are filled with newspaper clippings, including many obituaries from the 1920s and 30s and I am thoroughly enjoying them.
