    The Region 8 champ will host the Region 6 champ at 7 p.m. on Oct. 28. No. 18 Fern Creek (13-0) is the highest ranked team in that region according to the latest Maher Rankings.

  • Volleyball: North knocks off OC

    BUCKNER – North Oldham coach Brett Versen has had an eventful couple of weeks.

    On Sept. 15 his wife gave birth to their first daughter, Chaney Elizabeth.

    Ever since then Versen has had to balance life as a new father with his duties as first-year coach of the No. 15 Lady Mustangs.

    “It’s been a lot going on,” he said. “But it’s awesome.”

  • Boys golf: Shamrocks nip Mustangs for second

    PPROSPECT – The race to watch Tuesday at Nevel Meade Golf Course was the one for second place.

    St. Xavier obliterated the field at the Region 6 Tournament, shooting a 276. But each region is allowed two entrants into the state tournament, and the second spot was up for grabs between Trinity and North Oldham.

    One year ago at Midland Trail in Louisville it was the Mustangs who beat the Shamrocks, 305 to 306, for that runner-up spot and state tournament berth.

  • Girls golf seasons end

    All three county girls golf teams saw their seasons come to an end Monday afternoon in the Region 5 Tournament at Midland Trail in Louisville.

    Sacred Heart shot a 300 to win the tournament. Shelby County (329) took the region’s second spot in the upcoming state tournament.

    Oldham County (421) was the highest-finishing of the county teams, coming in 10th.

    Jaclyn Hampton shot a team-best 97 for the Lady Colonels.

    South Oldham (456) came in 13th. Molly Bebelaar led the way with an 89.

  • Oldham, South cross-country sweep meets

    Oldham County and South Oldham’s boys and girls dominated their respective cross-country meets Saturday morning.

    OC’s boys and girls took first place each at the Berea Invitational, while both South teams won their races at the Hillbilly Run in Bardstown.

    The Colonel boys scored 80 points, out-pacing second-place Lafayette (86).

    Junior Conner Hounshell (17:46) led OC with a seventh-place finish. Next for the Colonels was No. 15 Douglas Ringer,

    No. 19 Shaun Montgomery, No. 23 Kenneth Sutherland and No. 24 Reid Honeycutt.

  • Football: Bullitt East handles OC

    Konnor Polson threw for 192 yards and four touchdowns and ran for 44 yards in leading Bullitt East to a 44-21 win over Oldham County Friday night in Buckner.

    The Chargers led 10-7 after the first quarter but took the game over in the second, scoring 27 points to take a 37-7 lead into halftime.

    Colonel quarterback James Harding was 14-of-39 for 185 yards with two touchdown passes and one interception.

    OC receiver Allan Farrow hauled in three passes for 87 yards and a touchdown. Justin Viar had six catches for 48 yards and a score.

  • Girls soccer: Youngsters step up, North beats OC in PK's

    GOSHEN – Freshmen and sophomores didn’t play like inexperienced players for North Oldham on Sept. 25.

    As a result, a young Lady Mustang squad got its first win over cross-town rival Oldham County in nearly eight years.

    Sophomore Emma Boyd tied the match with a late penalty kick and hit another during a shootout. Freshman goalkeeper Katelyn Kellogg saved two OC shots during that penalty shootout, including the one that clinched a 3-2 shootout edge and 2-1 victory.

  • Football: North, South start district play

    North Oldham and South Oldham will start trying to improve their playoff positions this Friday when they begin district play.

    The Class 4A No. 7 Mustangs (3-1) will play the first of their four District 3 games at Spencer County (2-2) at 7:30 p.m. Friday.

    Class 5A No. 6 South (3-1) will start the defense of its 2013 District 5 crown when it goes to Hebron to take on Conner (0-4) at 7:30 Friday night.

  • OCHS adds girls lacrosse

    After getting funding support from the Board of Education Monday, Oldham County will join North Oldham and South Oldham as county schools offering girls lacrosse.

    The sport, currently at the club level, is quickly growing both in county and regionally, OC athletic director Kevin Combs told the board.

    According to Combs, 35 girls have indicated on a survey they were interested in playing the sport for OC, which once fielded a team with students from all three high schools.

  • Football: Oldham wins first home game in two years

    BUCKNER – For the uninitiated, Friday night probably sounded more like Sunday morning to anyone passing by Oldham County’s Bell Field.

    A loud, repeating clang was heard for 15 minutes, much like church bells calling parishioners to worship. But instead of a call to hymns, it was a victorious melody for the OC football team, celebrating its first home victory in two years.

    Each clang of the victory bell was a reminder that the Colonels were back on the winning side of things after a 55-54 victory over North Bullitt.
