Oldham County High School

  • Oldham County Male Athlete of the Year

    It was hard to find many positives about Oldham County’s 2013 football season.

    The Colonels ended the year with six straight losses, limping home to a 2-9 record and first round playoff exit.

    But while everything else was going wrong for OC, they could at least rely on the right foot of their senior kicker.

    Sean Nuernberger was named first-team all-state by the Courier-Journal after hitting 13 of 20 field goals in 2013.

    That included a 57-yarder he booted in a loss to Ballard.

  • Oldham County Team of the Year

    What made Oldham County’s girls soccer season so remarkable wasn’t just how far the team advanced, but how thoroughly it beat its opponents.

    Coach Dan Schulz’s Lady Colonels played six playoff games from Oct. 16-Nov. 2, covering the district title games, three region tournament games and two state tournament games.

    During that time OC out-scored its opposition 30-0, even after having to change goalkeepers following an injury to starter Caitlyn Mason.

    OC walloped Elizabethtown 6-0 in the semi-state round at home.

    The Eastern Kentucky University golfer fired back-to-back 71’s the final two rounds after scoring 75 the first day.

    He finished 13 shots behind tournament champion Tom Campbell of Danville.

  • Brown wins at Tates Creek

    The La Grange native won the event by one stroke, earning 200 points toward the summer championship.

  • Stephens: Coaches weigh in on World Cup

    At this time of year we’re usually starving for sports.

    The U.S. Open, Stanley Cup Final and NBA Finals all ended last weekend. The British Open is a few weeks away, college and pro football camps another few weeks past that.

    In most years all we’d have left are NASCAR and the Cincinnati Reds, currently making a charge just to get to .500.

    Luckily this is the one year in four where the sports calendar gives us the globe’s biggest sporting event to fill that summer void.
