  • Football: Winless Colonels need better line play at Franklin

    Oldham County is still searching for the right combinations on its offensive and defensive lines and its first win of the Mike Shatzer era.

    The Colonels face maybe their toughest test of the schedule at 7:30 p.m. Friday, a road game at Class 5A No. 6 Franklin County.

    Coach Chris Tracy’s Flyers (1-0) beat Western Hills 42-6 last week in their opener.

    “They’re all about speed,” Shatzer, first-year Colonels coach, said about Franklin. “They’re very fast.

    North Oldham was 4-0-1 going into a game at Grant County Wednesday night that was played after the Era’s press deadline.

    Meanwhile South Oldham was 4-1 going into a game at Ballard Wednesday that was also played after the Era’s deadline.

    North has scored 25 goals in its first five matches while only allowing five. South has also allowed five while scoring 13.

  • Volleyball: Lady Colonels take BIVT

    Oldham County continued an undefeated start to the 2014 season Friday and Saturday with a sweep of the Bluegrass Invitational Volleyball Tournament at Lafayette.

    Included in the Lady Colonel run were wins over No. 10 McCracken County and No. 3 Ryle.

    OC (11-0), ranked No. 9 in last week’s Kentucky Volleyball Coaches Association poll, got the weekend started Friday with 2-0 victories over tournament host Lafayette and Woodford County.

  • OC dance wins at Fair
  • Football: North Oldham dominates OC in 35-point win

    GOSHEN – One program is building for the future, laying the foundation for better days.

    The other program is playing for the here and now, out to win a district title and possibly compete for more.

    It was obvious which program was which Friday night at Mustang Stadium.

    North Oldham’s talented and veteran team had its way with a rebuilding Oldham County squad, beating the Colonels 42-7 in a dominating performance.

  • Volleyball: Lady Colonels sweep Ballard, stay undefeated

    BUCKNER – Oldham County volleyball has continued its perfect start to the 2014 season.

    Ballard was the latest to fall victim to the Lady Colonel attack, as OC beat the Bruins 3-0 (25-18, 25-17, 25-15) in straight sets at hime Thursday night.

    The Lady Colonels (5-0) have dropped just two sets all season and are ranked No. 9 by the Kentucky Volleyball Coaches Association. The first week of play has been a good start for an OC team out to defend its first Region 8 title since 2009.

  • Football: North hosts OC Friday

    Oldham County and North Oldham’s three-year series has gone to the smaller school each time.

    North’s Mustangs, who play in Class 4A, have beaten the Class 6A Colonels in all three meetings, including a 31-28 win last August in Buckner.

    The teams will play their annual game at 7:30 p.m. Friday in Goshen. It will be the season opener for North, while OC comes in 0-1.

    Continuing the winning streak is a point of pride for the Mustangs, senior wing back Arien Beasley said.

  • Volleyball: Road to Region 8 crown goes through District 29

    Oldham County schools have dominated Region 8 volleyball since regions were redrawn in 2003.

    North Oldham, Oldham County or South Oldham has won the region every year since that time, with OC taking the crown last season.

    With OC and North both in the preseason top 15 and South getting better, South coach Amy Grimm expects that District 29 dominance to continue in 2014.

    “Of course the three best teams in our region are in Oldham County,” Grimm said. “It’s North, South and OC every year.

  • Football: Turnovers cost OC in loss to Iroquois

    BUCKNER – Oldham County had to wait an extra two hours to start the Mike Shatzer era Friday.

    After a tough loss, the Colonels will have to wait at least another week for their first Shatzer-era win.

    Iroquois took a 22-19 lead with less than three minutes left on a long Larry Jackson touchdown run, then sealed the game with a Germone Kohn interception return touchdown to beat OC 29-19 at Bell Field.

    The loss was the first at OC for Shatzer, hired during the offseason to replace Matt Brown.

  • Football: Severe weather causes cancellations of two county games

    BUCKNER – Going into Friday night, the biggest threat to area high school football games looked like it would be rising heat indexes.

    But a thunderstorm blew through the region at about 6:30 p.m., causing games with 7:30 starts to be delayed.

    Lingering lightning then led to cancellations of several games, including two involving county teams.
