  • Colonel football moving from 6A to 5A in 2015 season

    A re-classification could restore some old rivalries and add significance to at least one current one for Oldham County football.

  • Lady Colonels beat North in both teams' season opener

    GOSHEN – Oldham County was “shaking off the rust” in its season opener Friday, but the Lady Colonels still held on for a district victory.

    The Lady Colonels beat North Oldham 5-2 Friday night at North, moving their regular season and District 29 records to 1-0.

    “I think we had like four baserunning errors we could've scored more runs on,” coach Steve Leanhart said. “I guess it was the first game jitters and shaking off the rust the first game on the field, especially since we've been indoors the last few months.”

  • North fires Stobaugh

    North Oldham will have its fourth different boys basketball coach in six years on the Mustang sidelines next fall.

    Athletic director Alan Yanke said off-court issues rather than on-court performance were the reason for the change.

    The win clinches OC (21-6) a spot in next week’s Region 8 tournament and a spot opposite South Oldham in Friday night’s District 29 championship game. North (11-17) ends its year on a five-game losing streak after beating South Feb. 10.

  • Stephens: Tee’s big night joyful for everyone

    GOSHEN – Sports provide the full range of emotions, but too often it’s the negative emotions we see on display.

    The rage from a parent yelling at an official, the disappointment of an unexpected loss, the sadness of a season coming to an end – the negatives are easy to spot.

    But Friday at North Oldham we got to see an emotion you don’t often see on a court or field, but one that’s as noticeable as any.

    We saw pure joy.
