  • Golf: Thomas claims first pro win

    Justin Thomas turned what he called “a good, solid” first year in professional golf “into a great year” on Sunday.

    The Goshen resident sank a 21-and-a-half-foot putt on the first playoff hole to beat Richard Sterne and win the Web.com Tour’s Nationwide Children’s Hospital Championship in Columbus, Ohio.

    The tournament victory was the first for Thomas, a former Kentucky Mr. Golf at St. Xavier High School and All-American at the University of Alabama playing his first year in the pros.

  • Girls cross-country: OC second in Rumble

    GOSHEN – Oldham County used a consistent approach to get a runner-up finish Saturday.

    The Lady Colonels placed five runners between positions 18-33 and came in second only to DuPont Manual in the team competition of the Rumble Through the Jungle on Saturday morning at Creasey Mahan Nature Preserve.

    Junior Sammy Griffin led OC with an 18th place finish, running the three laps in 20:36.53.

    “I’m always so proud of the team,” Griffin said. “…I think everybody did well.”

  • Boys cross-country: Fryman wins Rumble at home course

    GOSHEN – Trenton Fryman had come close to winning his home meet twice before.

    The North Oldham junior finished third in the 2012 Rumble Through the Jungle and came in second one year ago.

    Fryman broke through Saturday, winning the boys 5K at the Rumble, an annual meet North hosts at Creasey Mahan Nature Preserve.

    Fryman passed Madison Central’s Brennan Fields on the final of three laps to finish first with a time of 16:08.33. Fields (16:11.47) was second, followed by third-place Tanner Dowdy of South Oldham (16:26.40).

  • Football: Thompson does it all in South rout

    BUCKNER – Something good happened for South Oldham seemingly every time Starr Thompson touched the ball Friday night.

    The junior wingback ran for, threw for and caught a touchdown. He added an interception while playing cornerback.

    Thompson set the tone as Class 5A No. 6 South rolled to its fourth straight win over rival Oldham County, 42-7 on the road at Bell Field.

    The four-game winning streak marks the Dragons’ (3-0) longest run in their series against their Highway 146 rivals.

  • Volleyball: OC sweeps South, stays unbeaten

    CRESTWOOD ­– Oldham County showed some rare imperfections early on against South Oldham Thursday, but roared back to keep its undefeated record intact.

    OC (19-0) is off to the best start in school history and is now ranked No. 5 in the state.

  • Football: Colonels host unbeaten Dragons

    Oldham County will hope to make the second intra-county football rivalry game of the year go differently than the first.

    At 7:30 p.m. Friday OC (0-3) will welcome Class 5A No. 6 South Oldham (2-0) to Bell Field with sights set on a better outcome.

    The Dragons are coming off an emotional home win over Class 5A No. 7 Anderson County, while the Colonels fell 49-7 last week at Class 5A No. 4 Franklin County.

    Coach Larry Dunn’s North Oldham team beat Oldham County and South Oldham for the title last fall.

  • OCYFL Week 2 recap

    The Oldham County Youth Football League (OCYFL) was back in action and finally able to complete a full week’s worth of games after uncharacteristic heat forced the league to cancel games during opening weekend.

    Saturday’s games went on as scheduled and Sunday wrapped up the Pee-Wee division’s games to complete the first full week.   

    The Vikings and Jaguars would start out the day for the division.

  • Football: Mustangs, minus Heckenberg, play at North Bullitt

    The momentum North Oldham gained by beating OC 42-7 in its opener came to a halt last week when quarterback Taylor Heckenberg separated his throwing shoulder in a 24-21 loss at Class 2A No. 4 Christian Academy-Louisville.

    With Heckenberg out for at least a couple of weeks, sophomore Bryce Webb and/or junior T.C. Falkner will handle quarterback duties at 7:30 Friday night at North Bullitt (1-1).

    “(The difference is) experience more than anything,” Mustangs coach Billy Martin said. “They can run our offense.”
