  • 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.”

    The loss was the Lady Colonels' first in five games and just their third in their last 11 contests. OC (16-9) still hasn't made a region title game since 2001.

  • Colonels get past Henry in first round
