  • Proposed 2015-18 football district alignments announced

    Oldham County and South Oldham are one step closer to playing in the same football district starting in 2015.

    The KHSAA Board of Control approved a draft of the football alignment for the 2015-18 seasons Tuesday.

    The draft was configured after schools were given the option of "playing up" a class, or moving down a class if the opportunity was available. Oldham County made such a move, going from 6A to 5A.

    The 2015-18 alignment will be presented to the membership before likely being finalized during the Board's May meeting.

  • Masterman’s slam helps North even series vs. OC

    GOSHEN – Cameron Masterman changed North Oldham’s game against Oldham County Thursday night with one big swing.

    Masterman hit a fifth-inning grand slam over the left-field wall to push the Mustangs lead from 1-0 to 5-0. North would go on to win 7-4, evening the regular season series against its visiting cross-town rival at 1-1.

    The win came one night after a Christian Haynes single in the seventh gave OC a 4-3 win over North in Buckner.

  • Haynes' hit gives OC win over North

    BUCKNER – Christian Haynes had chances to give his Oldham County team the lead in both the third and fifth innings Wednesday night against North Oldham.

    In the third, with the bases loaded, two outs and the game tied 3-3, Haynes struck out. In the fifth, with runners on the corners, two outs and the game still knotted at three, he grounded out to North pitcher Ethan Cleary.

  • Rigdon back to captain Lady Colonels

    As Oldham County charged to a second straight Region 8 title last year, one of its best players was stuck in the dugout.

    Kailey Rigdon, a junior first baseman garnering Division-I interest, dove back into third base during a game over the 2013 spring break. The momentum of her dive carried her body forward, but her arm stayed put, grabbing the base.

    A season-ending torn labrum in her shoulder was the result. The injury was especially frustrating, Rigdon said, because it affected her college plans.

  • Spring football practice begins this week

    After spending the winter lifting weights, county football players get to step outside and do some work on the field this week.

    North Oldham, Oldham County and South Oldham have all either started or are starting spring football practice this week. The teams have three weeks to conduct 10 practices, per KHSAA rules.

    Coming a little after halfway between the end of one football season and beginning of the next, North coach Billy Martin said spring practice is one of his favorite times of the year.

  • Colonel football moving from 6A to 5A in 2015 season

    A re-classification could restore some old rivalries and add significance to at least one current one for Oldham County football.

    The Colonels will move from Class 6A to 5A on the gridiron, the KHSAA announced last week. OC’s move was one of several made by teams in the 4A, 5A and 6A levels.

  • Colonel baseball upsets St. X

    BUCKNER – You don't beat one of the state's top teams without a few bumps and bruises to show for it.

    Oldham County's Tanner Hennings had a big bruise Monday night. The senior left-fielder took a pitch off the bottom half of his right thumb in the bottom of the fifth. Hennings said after the game he thought it was broken.

    One inning later, right after St. Xavier had turned a 7-2 OC lead into a 7-6 margin, Hennings got a big two-RBI single to push the Colonel lead to 9-6.

  • Leanhart named pitcher of week

    Indiana University Southeast freshman Jessica Leanhart was named the KIAC softball pitcher of the week by KIAC officials on March 3.

    Leanhart, an Oldham County High School product, finished the week 2-0 after earning the win against St. Catharine and Brescia. She finished the week with a 3.23 earned run average and struck out 14 opposing batters in 13 innings pitched.

    Leanhart’s best outing of the week came in a 2-1 win over Brescia when she pitched a complete game, giving up one run on six hits while striking out seven.

  • Gilley honored by the KABC

    Former Oldham County girls basketball coach Todd Gilley was inducted into the Kentucky Association of Basketball Coaches Court of Honor on Friday in Bowling Green during the girls state basketball tournament.

    Gilley coached at OC beginning in 1998-99 for four years.

    At OC all four of his teams reached the regional tournament. Two of his teams reached the semifinals of the region and one reached the finals. Two of his teams won at least 24 games and were ranked in the top 20 in the state.

  • Five-run seventh gives Manual win over OC

    BUCKNER – Oldham County couldn't quite finish off DuPont Manual Saturday afternoon.

    The Colonels led most of the way but allowed the Crimsons a five-run seventh inning and fell at home, 7-3.

    Manual scored its five runs on an RBI hit by pitch, two-RBI single, RBI groundout and RBI single. Left-hander Branden Potts was saddled with all five runs.

    “Except for one inning, I thought today was great,” OC coach Scott Gerlach said. “But unfortunately that's baseball.
