    LOUISVILLE – The county’s three schools have competed for the Oldham County Cup for six years now, but one school has dominated the series.

    North Oldham was best in the pool once again Saturday night, sweeping the boys’ and girls’ titles to win the Cup for the fifth straight year.

    North totaled 498 points in the meet held at the University of Louisville’s Ralph Wright Natatorium – the same facility which will host the upcoming region and state events.

    The last-second loss came less than 24 hours after Lady Colonel guard Kasey Wernert hit a buzzer-beating right-handed floater to sink Gallatin County 51-50 on the same floor.

    OC led 37-30 in the final minutes before coach Jace Bryant said his team gave the game away.

  • Boys Basketball: Mustangs out-play Colonels in district upset

    GOSHEN – According to both its coach and star player, North Oldham had yet to play a full game this season heading into its showdown Friday night against then-No. 11 Oldham County.

    “We always said if we put four quarters together we can beat anybody and we’ll be tough to beat,” Mustang senior guard Jon Jon Henry said.

    “We’ll usually have one, maybe two (good quarters) per game,” North coach Rob Burton said. “But we’ve never been able to put four quarters together defensively or offensively.”

  • Girls Basketball: OC beats North for first district win

    GOSHEN – Missed shots plagued Oldham County in its first two district games, both losses.

    Staring at a 0-3 District 29 record, OC finally scored some points Friday and picked up a district win.

    Senior center Abigail Stewart led the way with 18 points as the Lady Colonels won 59-32 at North Oldham.

    BUCKNER – Defensively to offensively, Oldham County clicked in the second half Monday night.

    The Lady Colonels outscored Holy Cross (Louisville) 36-16 over the final 16 minutes and left with a 52-42 home win.

    OC (8-10) made shots, which allowed it to set its pressure defense. That led to Cougar turnovers and more easy Lady Colonel shots.

    OC forced Holy Cross (11-7) into 22 turnovers, most of which came in the second half.

  • Boys Basketball: OC pulls away from out-manned South

    BUCKNER – The Litkenhous-rated No. 12 team in the state took awhile to get rolling in a rivalry game Friday night.

    But Oldham County’s depth and talent eventually took over against a South Oldham team missing two of its top players, and the Colonels rolled to a 29-point win.

    Senior point guard Hayden Hawes scored a game-high 20 points in leading No. 12 OC to a 70-41 home win over a thin South squad.
