  • 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.

  • 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.

  • Boys golf: Mustangs run table Thursday, win third straight Oldham Cup

    PROSPECT – North Oldham had a steep task in topping its 2013 Oldham Cup performance when it hit the course to defend the title last week.

    One year ago the Mustangs won the three-day, three-team title against Oldham County and South Oldham by scoring seven-and-a-half points out of a possible eight on the final day, a competition record.

    North beat its own feat on Sept. 18 at Nevel Meade Golf Course, winning all eight of its matches to secure the Cup for the seventh time. North totaled 14 points overall, with OC claiming eight and South two.

  • Boys soccer: Lister scores three, South beats OC

    CRESTWOOD – A stingy defense and the finishing abilities of senior forward Christian Lister put South Oldham in the district driver’s seat Tuesday.

    Lister scored three second-half goals and the Dragon defense didn’t allow Oldham County to put a shot on goal until the final minute. That combination added up to a 3-0 South win on a chilly night at Dragon Stadium.

    Tuesday’s win marked the Dragons’ first shutout of the Colonels in six years.

  • Girls cross-country: OC second in Rumble

    GOSHEN – Oldham County used a consistent approach to get a runner-up finish Saturday.

    The Lady Colonels placed five runners between positions 18-33 and came in second only to DuPont Manual in the team competition of the Rumble Through the Jungle on Saturday morning at Creasey Mahan Nature Preserve.

    Junior Sammy Griffin led OC with an 18th place finish, running the three laps in 20:36.53.

    “I’m always so proud of the team,” Griffin said. “…I think everybody did well.”

  • Boys cross-country: Fryman wins Rumble at home course

    GOSHEN – Trenton Fryman had come close to winning his home meet twice before.

    The North Oldham junior finished third in the 2012 Rumble Through the Jungle and came in second one year ago.

    Fryman broke through Saturday, winning the boys 5K at the Rumble, an annual meet North hosts at Creasey Mahan Nature Preserve.

    Fryman passed Madison Central’s Brennan Fields on the final of three laps to finish first with a time of 16:08.33. Fields (16:11.47) was second, followed by third-place Tanner Dowdy of South Oldham (16:26.40).

  • Football: Thompson does it all in South rout

    BUCKNER – Something good happened for South Oldham seemingly every time Starr Thompson touched the ball Friday night.

    The junior wingback ran for, threw for and caught a touchdown. He added an interception while playing cornerback.

    Thompson set the tone as Class 5A No. 6 South rolled to its fourth straight win over rival Oldham County, 42-7 on the road at Bell Field.

    The four-game winning streak marks the Dragons’ (3-0) longest run in their series against their Highway 146 rivals.

  • Volleyball: OC sweeps South, stays unbeaten

    CRESTWOOD ­– Oldham County showed some rare imperfections early on against South Oldham Thursday, but roared back to keep its undefeated record intact.

    The Lady Colonels trailed 18-11 at one point in the first set but came back to win the set 25-23, then took the next two to sweep the Lady Dragons, 3-0.

    OC (19-0) is off to the best start in school history and is now ranked No. 5 in the state.
