  • Oldham County wins Frankfort Duals Finals

    Oldham County defeated Franklin County High School in the Frankfort Duals Finals Dec. 8 to win the overall team championship.  The Colonels beat the Flyers 35-32 and it was tied going into the final bout at 132 lbs.  
    A pin by Alex Myers in the 220 pound class, a major decision victory by Brady Emerson in 120 pound class and a pin by sophomore John Shirkey in the 126 pound class put them in position to win the dual in the final bout. That’s when junior Connor Wilkerson defeated a highly ranked senior from Franklin County High School, Roderick Agyman.

    Ashley McMurtrey would lead the Colonels with 8 points at the quarter and they never looked back from there, taking advantage of a smaller Presentation team.

  • SOHS captures two championships

    When the South Oldham cheerleading season started, coaches Abby Korfhage and Lindsay Combest didn’t know what to expect. Now, months later, it’s safe to say they have a pretty good idea of where their team stands after winning a pair of national championships at the America’s Best Cheer and Dance Competition in Gatlinburg, Tenn., Dec 1-2.
    The process to get where they are now hasn’t been an easy one though.

  • Dragons improve to 1-0 in district

    It didn’t take long for the South Oldham Dragons to get started Monday night, but once they did the floodgates opened quickly in a 90-42 rout of district foe Trimble County.
    Though plenty of shots were falling for South Oldham, Kyle Young was especially hot, racking up 30 points, including 17 in the first quarter. That number ballooned to 25 in the game’s final minutes.
    But that’s when Young started passing up shots instead of taking a run at the 30-point mark.
    That wasn’t okay with some of his teammates.

  • Former Oldham County basketball coach honored

    To say that Dec. 8 was a special night for Oldham County High School athletics might be a bit of an understatement.
    Though both the boys and girls teams picked up big wins in their respective games of the Ronald McDonald Classic — a fundraising game the Colonels have hosted for a decade — they also honored former basketball coach Gary Forrest with a banner recognizing his contributions to the program.
    In fitting manner, it transpired during the event that Forrest founded and participated in for a number of years.

  • Just a bit short

    If the Oldham County basketball team was supposed to feel intimidated Tuesday night, someone forgot to tell the Colonels.
    Welcoming Bullitt East to Buckner, the boys in blue gave the Chargers all they could handle, going toe-to-toe with the state’s No. 4-ranked team for the better part of the game before falling 50-43.
    No player was bigger in that effort that senior forward Garrett Masters, who led the Colonels with 10 points.

  • Several local football players named to All-Star teams

    The football season ended in November but several area players have the chance to play at least one more game.

    North Oldham defensive end Cody Elbert, running back Josh Smith and offensive lineman Tanner Williams were named to the East team along with South Oldham’s Tony Brackens and Tom Singer and Oldham County’s Jacob Taylor.

  • Oldham County finishes in second at wrestling meet, North Oldham grabs eighth

    Their competition didn’t end quite the way they hoped, the Oldham County wrestling team performed well nonetheless, grabbing a second place showing in a tough field at the Oldham Superduals.
    After defeating Jeffersonville, Ind., 67-9, the Colonels dispatched Apollo 63-13, LaRue County 39-36 and perennial power Woodford County in the semifinals 36-27.
    That earned them the right to take on Simon Kenton in the finals but the boys in blue ran out of steam, dropping 57-12 to the Pioneers.
