South Oldham

  • Weather delays state wrestling meet for three weeks
    A week’s worth of winter weather has postponed the state wrestling competition, which was scheduled to take place in Lexington this past weekend. The Kentucky High School Athletic Association announced it would postpone the competition late last week citing high snow totals in different parts of the state and the “safety and welfare” of everyone involved. The state meet will now take place March 9-11, still scheduled at the Alltech Arena in Lexington.

      P { margin-bottom: 0.08in; } With an extra week of preparation, revenge on the mind and a loser-goes-home atmosphere, South Oldham thought they finally had the recipe for defeating No. 1 district seed North Oldham Tuesday night.   But the Mustangs instead survived the upset attempt, 68-61, defeating South on its home court for the third time this season.

  • Swim teams heading to postseason meets

  • GIRLS: Seniors send Oldham County to district finals
    One of the keys to any postseason run is having experienced players go above and beyond their play in the regular season.   Which is why the Lady Colonels are heading to the district finals and South Oldham is heading home after a 63-45 defeat in the first round of the postseason Wednesday night.   The Lady Colonels (13-15) relied heavily on seniors Jayla Davis, Kasey Wernert and Abigail Stewart, who scored 47 points combined for Oldham County.

The non-sanctioned KHSAA event takes place two weeks before the state’s event in Lexington.
