  • Colonels pull away late to claim district over South
    BEDFORD — As a missed shot by Oldham County High School senior guard Parker Simpson caromed off the rim, senior guard Kerry Smith came leaping in towards the rim un guarded from the left post. Smith attempted to dunk the ball but lost the handle. The ball popped up in the air as high as the top of the backboard and swished through the net on its way back down.
  • Lady Dragons roll over OC for district crown

  • NOHS nabs fourth at region swim
    LOUISVILLE — Because of her fifth-place finish in the preliminaries of the 200-yard individual medley, North Oldham High School eighth-grader Asia Seidt swam the finals in the outside, seventh lane. But Seidt responded with a powerful swim to finish second in 2:05.12. Behind Seidt, the Lady Mustangs pulled out a fourth place finish with 111 points Feb. 18 at the Region Two Championships at the University of Louisville’s Ralph Wright Natatorium.
  • Miss Kentucky Soccer signs with Mississippi State
    Shortly after her sophomore year at South Oldham High School concluded, girls’ soccer midfielder Marissa Williams began visiting colleges. She’d planned a trip to the University of Alabama-Birmingham, but at the urging of her father, Jim Williams, Marissa also visited Mississippi State University. That afterthought visit sealed her decision.
  • SOHS girls' basketball primed for state run
    When she approaches the free-throw line, South Oldham High School senior guard Jasmine Whitfield goes through a routine. She stands a few inches behind the line with her right foot crossed over her left and her hands on her hips. With the ball in hand, she takes a step with her right foot, aligns her feet flush with the foul line and releases a shot that — more times than not — heads through the hoop.

  • South wins district outright
    GOSHEN – On the left side of the South Oldham High School boys’ basketball team’s jersey shorts was a gray Superman logo. While no individual took the superhero role Tuesday night, as a team, the Dragons were a super. Using a powerful second half, visiting SOHS put away North Oldham 60-48 Tuesday night to go 3-0 in district play and win the district regular season. The Dragons will be the top seed in the district tournament later this month.
  • SOHS spins its wheels in LIT loss
    LOUISVILLE — It was like South Oldham had its wheels stuck in the mud.             The Lady Dragons put their foot on the gas and would move a little bit, then they’d shift to reverse and try again, but get advance the same amount out of the rut.
