  • BOYS DISTRICT 29: North has home court against OC

    There’s no place like home for North Oldham’s boys basketball team.

    In Goshen the Mustangs are 2-0 against county teams the last two years, including a 76-63 win against South Oldham Feb. 10.

    On the road they haven’t beaten a county team since 2011, including a 62-48 road loss to Oldham County Jan. 30.

    Luckily for No. 3 seed North (11-14, 2-1 District 29) it’ll have home court advantage when it hosts No. 2 seed OC (19-6, 2-1) in a first round district tournament game 7:30 p.m. Wednesday.

  • Robinson races again

    Dallas Robinson will get his second shot at an Olympic medal this weekend in the four-man bobsled event in Sochi, Russia.

    Robinson, Justin Olsen and Johnny Quinn will be the push athletes on Nick Cunningham’s four-man sled in the event that begins at 11:30 a.m. Saturday and concludes at 4:30 a.m. Sunday.

    Robinson, a Crestwood native and Oldham County High School graduate, will look to help the U.S. repeat as gold medalists in the event.

  • OC wrestling takes first in Region 5

    Oldham County will go to state this weekend with a deep roster of competitors.

    OC qualified 12 wrestlers for this weekend’s state tournament, which begins at 10 a.m. Friday at Alltech Arena in Lexington. North qualified six wrestlers and South qualified four.

  • Oglesby matches Mary T

    LOUISVILLE – Grace Oglesby, like most talented swimmers in the Louisville area, said she knows the name of Mary T. Meagher.

    The North Oldham sophomore will now get to see her name right alongside Meagher’s in the record books.

    Oglesby won the 100-yard butterfly with a time of 54.66 seconds Saturday in the Region 2 championships at the Ralph Wright Natatorium. That mark tied a regional record set by Meagher in 1982.

    Meagher, who swam for Sacred Heart, went on to win three gold medals in the 1984 Summer Olympics and a bronze in 1988.

  • Shatzer meets new team

    BUCKNER – Oldham County football players hadn’t seen a Colonel head football coach face-to-face in nearly three months.

    But once the players met recently hired head coach Mike Shatzer Friday at OCHS, they said they liked what they saw.

    Shatzer, who’s still teaching at his current job in Alabama, drove north to meet his new team Friday. He introduced himself to players in the weight room before addressing players, parents and others involved with the program in the school library before the boys basketball game against Simon Kenton.

  • Colonels win Mustang Classic

    Oldham County’s Zac Brooks (above, right) and other wrestlers from OC, North Oldham and South Oldham competed in the Mustang Classic Saturday at North.

    The Colonels won the event with a team score of 210, followed by Woodford County (189) and Trinity (169.5). North (72) came in eighth and South (67) was 10th in the 20-team event.

    OC had three winners: Sam Gnadinger, 152-pound class, Max Emerson, 170-pound class and Alex McIntosh, 195-pound class. Will Jennings came in second in the 160-pound class.

  • District 29 seeds set, South gets No. 1

    South Oldham was upset by North Oldham Monday night, but the Dragons are still in prime position for the upcoming District 29 boys basketball tournament.

    South (15-3, 2-1 District 29) will be the No. 1 seed in the tournament, which will be played two weeks from now at North.

    OC (18-5, 2-1) will be the second seed, North (11-12, 2-1) will be No. 3 and Trimble County (9-11, 0-3) will be the fourth seed. The winners of the South vs. Trimble and North vs. OC games will advance to the Region 8 tournament.

  • Colonels outlast Simon Kenton

    BUCKNER – There’s a good chance Oldham County and Simon Kenton will meet one month from now in New Castle in the Region 8 Tournament. If so, the Colonels will hope to get a similar result to the one they tallied Friday night.

    OC used a 33-point fourth quarter to overcome a nine-point deficit and beat the Pioneers 72-65. The Colonels once again featured a balanced attack, with Austin Wills scoring 19 points, Connor Hicks scoring 17, Hayden Hawes pouring in 16 and Austin Perkins adding 14.

  • South at North boys postponed to Monday

    We’ll have to wait a little longer to see North Oldham and South Oldham square off in boys basketball.

    Due to inclement weather, the Dragons-Mustangs matchup scheduled for tonight will be played at 7:30 p.m. Monday at North.

    That game bumps South’s matchup with Iroquois, originally scheduled for Monday, off the schedule. The Iroquois game likely won’t be made up, South AD Mitchell Irvin said.

    South’s district girls game at Trimble County has been postponed to Wednesday, Feb. 12.
