    Oldham County will be playing a squad in a similar situation to its own Friday night at Bell Field.

    Eastern comes to Buckner Friday 0-1 in Class 6A, District 5 play after suffering a 53-13 shellacking by Ballard last week. The Colonels are also 0-1 in district play after a 35-13 loss to Fern Creek.

  • DRAGONS' DAY

    GOSHEN – Davis Ferriell’s eyes welled up after South Oldham’s win Monday when he was asked what it meant to keep his senior season alive.

     “I’d give anything to play with these boys,” Ferriell said.

    It’s in large part because of himself that he’ll get that opportunity.

    Ferriell headed in the game-winning goal off a corner kick with 20 minutes to play, giving the Dragons (12-4-2) a 2-1 win against Oldham County in the first round of the District 29 boys soccer tournament at North Oldham.

  • Seven turnovers doom Colonel Homecoming

    BUCKNER –Oldham County’s Brian Barmantje didn’t need long to diagnose the reason for the Colonels’ loss to Fern Creek Friday.

      “You don’t win many games when you turn it over seven times,” the senior linebacker/offensive lineman said.

      But that’s exactly what OC did, losing four fumbles and throwing three interceptions in a 35-13 Homecoming loss at Bell Field to the Tigers.

    And now a North team that finished seventh in the 24-team state tournament and returns its top five competitors knows what the challenge is for next season.

  • OCS training little leaders

    For most elementary school students, synergize is often one of those big people words that has little meaning to their day-to-day lives.

    But in roughly half the elementary schools in Oldham County Schools, synergize is as common a word as pencil, backpack or book.

    That’s because five schools are implementing the Leader in Me program, which is based off the 7 Habits of Highly Effective People book many businesses give out to their employees.
