Oldham County High School

  • 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.

  • Locals earn taekwondo medals

    CRESTWOOD – Sean Ramey sent another Kentucky Taekwondo and Fitness group to U.S. Nationals earlier this month in San Jose, Calif., and the local competitors came back with a collection of awards.

    The group combined to win a sliver medal and four bronze medals, which Ramey, the facility’s owner and operator, called an “amazing accomplishment.”

    Dana DeYoung won the silver medal in the 33-40 women’s middleweight black belt division.

    Ty Clayton won bronze in the 8-9 boys black belt board breaking competition.

  • Aces ready for state tournament

    Coach Ed Raymond hopes a hard schedule has gotten his team prepared for the challenges of a state tournament.

    The Oldham Aces, based out of American Legion Post 39 in La Grange, will be in Benton this weekend for the U-17 state tournament.

    The double-elimination tournament starts Thursday and runs through the weekend.

    Oldham has played .500-ball during the season, which started in early June, Raymond said.

    The Aces have traveled around the region playing in weekend tournaments.

  • Oldham County Female Athlete of the Year

    Haley Kemper was the powerful playmaker for OC’s state semifinalist girls soccer team.

    Kemper scored a team-high 22 goals and tallied a team-high 12 assists as the Lady Colonels went to their best season in school history.

    The Eastern Kentucky University signee teamed with Louisville signee Shelby Cohen to provide the OC offense up the middle.

    For her efforts Kemper was named first-team all-state west for the second straight year.

  • 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.
