  • Students take in the ride to Rupp

    Aside from a few scattered colors, an army of blue-clad students wait anxiously behind Oldham County High School.

    Five buses stand ready to transport the students to Rupp Arena in Lexington March 15 to watch the Colonels’ boys’ basketball team play Bowling Green in the first round of the state tournament.

    Students traveled to the game to cheer on their classmates, hang out with friends and even take advantage of being out of class. But by the end of the day, a few found more important reasons why they attended.
