  • NOHS Boys Golfers Make the Cut

    BOWLING GREEN – North Oldham fought tooth-and-nail with tough Region 6 competition to make the KHSAA state tournament.

    Once the Mustangs got to Bowling Green they found themselves fighting more against the course than the competition.

    North fought wind and a tough course to shoot a 319 Tuesday at the Bowling Green Country Club, allowing the Mustangs to make the 12-team cut and advance to Wednesday’s final round.

    Visit oldhamera.com for coverage of the final round, which was played after the Era’s press deadline.

  • Cardinals better than schedule

    This year’s Louisville football team is the ultimate victim of circumstance.

    Coach Charlie Strong has built a juggernaut with a loaded offense and a defense that leads the nation in fewest points allowed.

    The No. 8 Cardinals (5-0) could, on any given Saturday, likely hold their own against any other team in the top 10. Should they beat Rutgers Thursday night (7:30 p.m., ESPN) as expected, they’ll have clinched bowl eligibility earlier than almost any team in America.

  • Kraus keeps OC unbeaten

    LOUISVILLE – Dan Schulz had a message for Kasey Kraus at halftime of Oldham County’s game against Assumption Monday.

     “She came off the field after the first half and I told her, ‘I think you’re going to score,’” said Schulz, the Lady Colonels’ head coach. “She was playing so hard and hustling for the ball. I just felt good about the runs she was making and how she was working hard.”
