The Oldham County History Center will host its second-annual Colonial Trade Faire from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Saturday and Sunday in conjunction with the Arts Association of Oldham County’s Arts on the Greenfestival.
The Colonial Trade Faire will feature merchants and sutlers dressed in period clothing, selling handcrafted 18th Century wares.
Taking to the diamond over the Memorial Day weekend in the 8th Region softball and baseball tournaments, three local teams advanced to play another game.
In baseball, defending champ North Oldham opened things up in the early game with a 6-4 win over Simon Kenton, while South followed that up nine hours later with a win of their own, edging Walton-Verona 3-2.
With their wins, the Mustangs will move into the semifinals today at 6 p.m. against Henry County, while the Dragons will follow in an 8 p.m. tilt against Anderson County.
For most of the year, Oldham County’s three local high schools may not have much in common but on Saturday evening that certainly wasn’t the case. Taking to Owsley B. Frazier Park at the University of Louisville for the state track and field meets, an athlete from each school left their mark on the Kentucky High School Athletic Association record book with wins at the state track and field meet.
The South Oldham Dragons went from the bottom to the top in a year's time, rebounding from a first round district exit to 29th District champs after a 6-4 win over defending 8th Region champion North Oldham.
Taking to South Oldham, the host team got thing started off in quick fashion Monday night, blitzing fourth seed Trimble County 10-0. After picking up two runs in the bottom of the third, Dragons would turn up the heat an inning later, exploding for seven runs to put the game away. Drew Greenwood would lead the charge for South, going 2-for-2 in the win with two runs, a walk and two RBIs.
On the mound, Braden Johnson would go the distance, tossing just 61 pitches, 43 of those strikes, with only two hits surrendered.
Friday would prove to be a good day for Oldham County in the 2A state track and field meet as two local standouts captured state titles and both North and South Oldham performed well under the summer sun. On one side, the North Oldham guys finished second overall in the meet with a score of 48 points, while the girls took the No. 5 spot at 39.70 and Brianna Brown captured the girls' long jump title. On the other side, South Oldham picked up some hardware with a Leonard Faul title in the 800 meter run as the guys would finish in the No. 15 spot, while the girls would grab ninth.
While the track and field teams take to Owsley Frazier Cardinal Park today at the 2A state track meet, the tennis state tournament will be easing into day two at the University of Kentucky with only one local player, Jordan Pitts, left in the mix.
When the 2A state track meet kicks off today at Owsley Frazier Cardinal Park, the University of Louisville will have plenty of local flavor as both North and South Oldham will be looking to make a dent on the field.

Suddenly, the boat takes off, lifting South Oldham High School senior Elizabeth Fowler out of the water on a slalom ski.

A competitive water skier, Fowler is one of the best in the country. She’s also an instructor and this fall, she’ll be swimming with elite skiers at the University of Alabama.
