Oldham County High School

  • Griffin's 3 sends South past OC

    CRESTWOOD – High-quality basketball is a family tradition for both Michael Griffin and Isaac Fields.

    Friday night the son of former Oldham County star Jeff Griffin and the younger brother of former South Oldham standout Carson Fields each got to put their own stamps on basketball in the county.

    Fields came off the bench to hit four 3-pointers and Griffin hit the game-winning 3 with 20 seconds left as South knocked off OC, 62-58. They helped the Dragons win a game they trailed 50-40 at one point during the fourth quarter.

  • OC girls finally break through vs. South

    CRESTWOOOD – The records don’t lie when it comes to Oldham County and South Oldham’s girls basketball rivalry.

    “I counted it up today,” OC coach Jace Bryant said, “and the last 12 meetings, they’re leading the series 10-2.”

    After Friday night, you can make that 10-3 over the last 13.

    Ashley McMurtrey scored 24 points, including the game’s last seven, Friday as the Lady Colonels finally took down their archrival, 53-47 at South.

  • Two of region's best meet

    Oldham County and South Oldham’s boys go into their meeting at 7:45 p.m. Friday with quality wins under their belts.

    OC recently finished third in the Surf Division of the Surf ‘N’ Slam Tournament in San Diego, beating teams from Florida and California.

    Meanwhile South is coming off a title two weekends ago in the John Fendley Classic and a third-place finish in last weekend’s Lindsey Wilson College Holiday Classic.

    South and OC are ranked first and third in Region 8 by the Courier-Journal.

  • Lady Colonels out for revenge vs. South

    Oldham County’s girls seemed on their way to a District title last February, leading South Oldham by 14 points in the fourth quarter of the district title game.

    But the Lady Dragons came back and guard Abbey VanZant hit a buzzer-beater to take down OC, 46-44.

    The Lady Colonels will have a chance for revenge at 6 p.m. Friday when the rivals meet in Crestwood.

    The game will be broadcast live online at pegasussportsky.com.

    Meanwhile South (203) won the men’s meet, out-pacing North (167) and OC (124).

  • Oldham sweeps Trimble

    BUCKNER – Both Oldham County teams came out victorious against district foe Trimble County Friday, but they did so in far different fashions.

    The Lady Colonels clawed back from a 36-15 halftime deficit before Ashley McMurtrey hit the game-winning free throw in a 57-56 OC win in the girls’ game.

    Meanwhile the boys had a less stressful evening, taking care of Trimble 70-30. Both teams are 1-0 now in District 29 play.

  • Male buzzer-beater sinks North

    GOSHEN – Four and six-tenths seconds was all Brandon Horne needed to drive a stake through North Oldham’s comeback chances Wednesday night.

    The Male guard took an inbounds pass at three-quarters court and drove straight to the basket, hitting the winning layup as time expired in a 46-44 Bulldog win at North.

    Horne’s buzzer-beater undid an otherwise solid Mustang second-half effort. North (0-2), which scored just 14 first-half points, out-paced Male 30-22 over the final 16 minutes.
