Oldham County High School

  • Lady Dragons roll over OC for district crown

    BEDFORD — With three minutes left, the game had been decided for some time.

    With the South Oldham girls’ basketball starters on the bench, Lady Dragons’ Coach Frank Wright walked from the seat closest to mid-court and made his way down the SOHS bench.

    Wright high-fived each of the Lady Dragons’ players and coaches, congratulating them on another district title.

  • OCMS basketball finishes as state semi-finalist

    Oldham County Middle School’s sixth-grade basketball team came up short in its goal of winning a state championship.

    But before the season began, center Griffin Snyder didn’t expect to come close to that goal.

    The Colonels concluded their season at 30-4 and as state semi-finalists at the Kentucky Basketball Academy sixth grade state tournament Jan. 21 in Lexington.

    “It was like accomplishing a dream that you never knew you had,” he said. “It felt amazing.”

  • Shirkey's third tops among Oldham wrestlers at state

    LEXINGTON — The semi-finals at the KHSAA state wrestling tournament wiped out any chance North Oldham, Oldham County or South Oldham had of a state championship.

    But despite a semi-final loss, OCHS freshman John Shirkey said he quickly regained his focus. After all, his day and his season were not done yet.

    Following his only loss of the state tournament, Shirkey pulled together two wins to take third place at 113 pounds.

  • Duncan, McIntosh take state titles

    It didn’t take long for Oldham County Middle School eighth grader Alex McIntosh to go from chump to champ.

    In just his second year wrestling, McIntosh is a state champion.

    McIntosh won the 168-pound weight class at the Kentucky Middle School Wrestling State Tournament Feb. 4 at Montgomery County, with an 8-4 win in the finals over Verity Middle School’s Grant Krueger.

  • Gnadinger and Rusch come through

    CRESTWOOD – Late in the 182-pound wrestling finals Saturday at the South Oldham Dragon Invitational, Oldham County High School senior Zac Gnadinger broke through a deadlocked match.

    Gnadinger and North Oldham senior Chase Rusch both picked up wins in their weight classes with late moves.

    Thanks to a late grapple, Gnadinger  pulled off a big upset over St. Xavier’s Will Tompkins 3-1. Tompkins is ranked No. 2 in the state in the weight class by KentuckyWrestling.com.

  • Grand Stamm—LIVE! 1.27 CHANGED TO 11:30 A.M.

    Guys and gals, welcome to our eighth Grand Stamm — LIVE! chat.

    I hope you all enjoyed last week's chat, with Eric Quigley, the former SOHS tennis phenom who's now a superstar at the University of Kentucky and about to go professional. He really gave us some great tennis insight on his game and tennis in general.

  • From the heart

    The members of Oldham County’s girls’ basketball team sat dejected in their locker room following their 59-31 loss to Martha Layne Collins.

    Coach Stephen Mullins and Assistant Coach Jeff Walton spoke to the team after the game, but Walton didn’t offer the typical pick-me-up.

  • Injury Advantage

    BUCKNER — A slight misstep on another player’s foot is all it took.

                Until North Oldham boys’ basketball senior center Devon Rowan came down on another player’s foot with 2:05 remaining in the second quarter, the Mustangs had control of the game at Oldham County and led 21-18.

                Rowan returned from the play, in which he sprained his left ankle, but NOHS never looked the same again.

  • Top basketball seed in sight

    The South Oldham High School girls’ and boys’ basketball teams can claim superiority over rival Oldham County High School following wins Friday.

    But more importantly, the path to the 29th district tournament is now shorter for the victors.

    The Dragons and Lady Dragons outplayed their counterparts Friday at SOHS, with the reward a pair of wins that bring them closer to the top seeds in their districts.
