  • Boys Basketball: Colonels take care of Butler in home opener

    BUCKNER – Oldham County’s fans got their first chance Friday to see the Region 8 favorite Colonels on their home court.

    OC showed those fans the balanced attack that caused coaches to vote the Colonels’ No. 1 in the region preseason poll.

    Senior guard Hayden Hawes scored 18 points and Jacob Bates and Brandon Johnson came off the bench to score 14 and 12, respectively, as OC cruised to a 75-58 win against Butler.

    The Colonels (2-0) used a 14-0 run to take a 20-9 lead early in the second quarter and never looked back.

  • Boys Basketball: Dragons fall just short in tense opener

    CRESTWOOD – South Oldham and its almost entirely new roster had a chance to make an early splash Thursday night against Region 8 contender Shelby County.

    But Matt Cantinna’s potential game-tying 3-pointer came off the rim at the buzzer and the Rockets held on for a 70-67 road win.

    The two-time defending region champion Dragons (0-1) lost every player that had meaningful varsity time last season except for junior guards Isaac Fields and Grant Williams.

    First team – Taylor Heckenberg (QB), Arien Beasley (RB and returner), Mike Marquez (TE), Ryan Jones (OT), Nicky Ingemi (OG), Collin Portman (DE), Cole Emery (OLB), Kevin Graham (LB), Matt Clark (DB)

  • Girls Basketball: Slow start dooms Lady Mustangs

    GOSHEN – North Oldham’s players are getting used to a new way of doing things, coach Dan Pfaff said.

    From different warmups to new offensive and defensive systems, the Lady Mustangs are trying to change their culture and climb out of the District 29 cellar.

    But combine first-game jitters with a hot-shooting opponent and North Oldham dug too deep a hole Wednesday night.

    North Bullitt raced out to a 30-4 lead early in the second quarter and went on to win 71-41 in the season opener for both teams.
