Oldham County High School

  • Pegasus Sports Network announces 2014 football coverage

    The Pegasus Sports Network (“PSN”) is proud to announce some exciting new changes as it begins its 36th season covering high school sports in Oldham County.

    The addition of video to the online internet coverage and local cable television coverage are just two of the exciting changes.

  • Littlefield honored for academics

    Former Oldham County football standout and current Murray State University lineman Zach Littlefield has been honored for his academic accomplishments.

    Littlefield has been recognized by the Ohio Valley Conference (OVC) for Academic Excellence, being named to the Commissioner’s Honor Roll.

    This is his third year to be recognized for this honor.

    To be eligible, a student athlete must have achieved at least a 3.25 GPA and have been eligible and participated in an NCAA sponsored sport and used a season of competition.  

  • In-state schools focusing on area football talent

     

    Arien Beasley is a standout running back who’ll have some options as to where he plays in college.

    Beasley, a North Oldham senior, is being recruited by a wide variety of schools across several levels and conferences. But some of his best options may be within the state, where he’s been in constant contact with coaches from the Universities of Kentucky and Louisville.

    “It would mean the absolute world to me to play for Louisville or UK,” Beasley, who scored 27 touchdowns in 13 games last year for the Mustangs, said.

  • Fall Sports Preview -- Boys Cross County

     

    Experience levels at cross-country programs are varied across the county.

    South Oldham returns its top six runners from the 3A state meet last year, where it finished sixth.

    North Oldham returns its top two finishers from last fall’s 2A state championship team. But the Mustangs have to fill several other spots.

    And Oldham County loses its top five runners from the 3A state meet and will have to find new runners to fill those shoes.

  • McLarty named to Team Kentucky

    Oldham County baseball junior Griffin McLarty has been named to Team Kentucky for the Prep Baseball Report Future Games.

    The Futures Games feature top Class of 2016 prospects from across the Midwest, according to a PBR release.

    The Futures Games will take place Thursday through Saturday at Grand Park in Westfield, Ind.

    Hundreds of scouts from across the country will be in attendance, per the release.

    McLarty, a 6-foot-2, 165-pound right-hander, will be on the field as a pitcher.

  • KHSAA emphasizing softball safety

    The KHSAA is recommending softball players at certain positions take further steps to protect themselves from injury.

    Earlier this month the KHSAA Board of Control passed a proposal recommending the use of protective headgear for softball pitchers, first basemen and third basemen.

    The proposal did not apply to baseball.

    The Board made its recommendation after studying national injury data and after consulting the state’s sports medicine advisory committee, per a KHSAA press release.

  • High school season set to begin

    Summer break is quickly coming to an end and the 2014-15 high school sports season is ready to begin.

    High school golf tournaments will begin in the coming days, with cross-country, volleyball, soccer, field hockey and football playing their first games in the weeks that follow.

    Look for fall sports team previews over the next few weeks in the Oldham Era.

    Once the season begins, you can keep up with the North Oldham, Oldham County and South Oldham action this fall and beyond by logging onto oldhamera.com and following @EraBrad on Twitter.

  • Locals earn taekwondo medals
