    An attorney for Harry “Shane” Mosley is petitioning Oldham Circuit Judge Karen Conrad to suspend the remainder of his nine month sentence, even though he has served less than one month of it.

  • Boys Basketball: OC, South both handle Henry

    NEW CASTLE – South Oldham and Oldham County each notched lopsided wins at Henry County over the weekend.

    Then on Saturday night, 15 different OC players scored as the Colonels crushed the Wildcats 79-40. That win capped a 3-0 week for OC, which re-appeared in this week’s Litkenhous top 20 at No. 14.

  • Swimming: North wins 5th straight county crown

    LOUISVILLE – The county’s three schools have competed for the Oldham County Cup for six years now, but one school has dominated the series.

    North Oldham was best in the pool once again Saturday night, sweeping the boys’ and girls’ titles to win the Cup for the fifth straight year.

    North totaled 498 points in the meet held at the University of Louisville’s Ralph Wright Natatorium – the same facility which will host the upcoming region and state events.

  • Girls Basketball: Collins takes down OC at buzzer

    BUCKNER – One day after winning at the buzzer, Oldham County lost at the horn Saturday afternoon.

    Collins senior Mary Borders hit a 3-pointer deep in the right corner before the clock hit zero, giving the Lady Titans a 42-41 road win at OC.

    The last-second loss came less than 24 hours after Lady Colonel guard Kasey Wernert hit a buzzer-beating right-handed floater to sink Gallatin County 51-50 on the same floor.

    OC led 37-30 in the final minutes before coach Jace Bryant said his team gave the game away.

  • Boys Basketball: Cantrell powers South to home win

    CRESTWOOD – Injuries have forced South Oldham coach Steve Simpson to spend the last month tweaking his lineup.

    One of those tweaks has been to move sophomore Cooper Cantrell from the bench into the lineup. And after originally having him play point guard in place of injured junior Grant Williams, Simpson has moved Cantrell off the ball to small forward.

    Cantrell scored 13 points in a loss to Mercer County Tuesday, then played his career game Thursday night.

  • Boys Basketball: Heckenberg, Henry combine to beat Anderson

    LAWRENCEBURG – All it took was one look.

    Deadlocked in a 68-68 duel with Anderson County and less than 30 seconds to play, North Oldham's Taylor Heckenberg glanced to his right. A simple backdoor play was there for the taking.

    Heckenberg found Jon Jon Henry behind the Anderson defense for a layup. Fouled on the play, Henry converted the 3-point play that powered North to a 73-71 win over the host Bearcats in a Region 8 showdown Tuesday.

  • Boys Basketball: Hard-to-guard Henry leads North

    Jalen Henry cracked up Monday when he was asked how a team might go about guarding his older brother, Jon Jon Henry.

    “I really don’t know,” Jalen said. “I guess you’d have to play him really close, just don’t let him get the ball… But I don’t think you can stop that, really.”

    Not many people have stopped Jon Jon Henry this season.

  • Wrestling: North Oldham tops Bullitt Central
  • Girls Basketball: South third-quarter run buries North

    CRESTWOOD – South Oldham lost the first, second and fourth quarters against North Oldham Wednesday night by a combined total of 39-38.

    Fortunately for the Lady Dragons the teams played a third quarter, and that’s where they dominated.

    South out-scored the Lady Mustangs 26-4 in the third and won 64-43 in a District 29 matchup.

    The Lady Dragons (10-7, 2-0 district) can now clinch the top seed in next month's district tournament if they beat Trimble County at home on Feb. 2.
