  • GIRLS: Seniors send Oldham County to district finals

    One of the keys to any postseason run is having experienced players go above and beyond their play in the regular season.

     

    Which is why the Lady Colonels are heading to the district finals and South Oldham is heading home after a 63-45 defeat in the first round of the postseason Wednesday night.

     

    The Lady Colonels (13-15) relied heavily on seniors Jayla Davis, Kasey Wernert and Abigail Stewart, who scored 47 points combined for Oldham County.

     

  • Hawes a Mr. Basketball finalist
  • Weather delays state wrestling meet for three weeks

    A week’s worth of winter weather has postponed the state wrestling competition, which was scheduled to take place in Lexington this past weekend.

    The Kentucky High School Athletic Association announced it would postpone the competition late last week citing high snow totals in different parts of the state and the “safety and welfare” of everyone involved.

    The state meet will now take place March 9-11, still scheduled at the Alltech Arena in Lexington.

    The Mustangs, were runner-up to DuPont Manual High School by three points, with the title coming down to the final event, North Oldham coach Randy Scherer said.

  • Wrestling squads tune up for region

    The county’s three wrestling programs are hoping some final tune-ups will help propel them to better performances at the regional meet.

    Both North Oldham and Oldham County’s wrestling teams finished fourth in their class at State Duals two weeks ago in Union County. The non-sanctioned KHSAA event takes place two weeks before the state’s event in Lexington.
