Oldham County High School

  • Wrestling background pays off for former OC star Vance

    Ichiro Vance has received his fair share of football accolades.

    The Eastern Kentucky University linebacker was named all-conference the last two seasons. This season Vance was named a semifinalist for the Campbell Award, an award that recognizes a college football player’s academics, community service and on-field performance.

    All those honors came after a decorated football career at Oldham County High School.

  • Former OC runner competing at NAIA Nationals

    Kevin Montgomery originally didn’t set out to be a runner.

    From the age of six, his love was baseball, and he played for 11 years in the South Oldham Little League. He ultimately started at second base for the Oldham County High School freshman team when he was in 8th grade, and he went on to play two more years at OC.

    This Saturday, though, the 2012 OC grad will be with the Tennessee Wesleyan College cross-country team that will compete at the NAIA Nationals in Lawrence, Kan.
