  • The Hermitage Classic

     In its second year, the 2013 Hermitage Classic drew 36 competitors to its ever evolving course. Much like the events held at the Flying Cross Farm Horse Trials, riders must compete in three events: dressage, marathon and cones. The primary difference is that these course events are completed with the horse, or team of two horses, pulling a cart with a driver and sometimes a passenger. 

  • County title up for grabs

     North Oldham came within one point of repeating as county champs last season.

    The Mustangs had already beat Oldham County 16-10 and needed a win over South Oldham, a team it had beat four out of the five previous years, to win the unofficial county title.

    But South pulled off a dramatic 43-42 double overtime win over the Mustangs, taking the Oldham County crown for itself.

  • OC girls clinch Region 8 tournament trip

  • Oldham Cup a cool, classy event

     PROSPECT – You couldn’t ask for a better setting than the one found last Thursday afternoon at Nevel Meade Golf Course.

    The temperature was around 70 degrees, with a light breeze blowing throughout. The course was well manicured, from the smooth fairways to the rock waterfall guarding the sixth green.

    And all around the course was good competition.

    Players from North Oldham, Oldham County and South Oldham High Schools were playing in the Oldham Cup, an annual event pitting the county’s three schools against each other.
