Oldham County Middle School had four athletes break school records at its home invitational on May 16. Ben Bunting set the record in the boys discus throw with a distance of 129-3.

The last time Kirsten Smith pitched on North Oldham’s field, she allowed four runs in what was seemingly the beginning of rough second half of the regular season for the Lady Colonels. It was the first time OC had lost to North in five years and the Lady Colonels dropped five of their last nine games following that district loss.
BUCKNER – South Oldham had no intentions of following the status quo to start the District 29 Tournament Monday night against North Oldham. On paper, it was a set up for the Dragons’ season to end – one team sputtering while the other flourished. History had shown these two crosstown rivals would fight to the final out, usually resulting in a one-run ball game. Winner lives another week, loser goes home.
GOSHEN — Postseason appears to be business as usual for the Lady Colonels.
Kirsten Smith followed up her no-hitter in the district semifinals with another strong outing from the circle and at the plate in a 10-2 victory over North Oldham in the District 29 championship game Wednesday night in Goshen.
