  • Cats-Cards tough to call this...

     I’ve lived all 22 of my years in Kentucky and I’m not sure I can remember a Kentucky vs. Louisville game that was this hard to pick.
    What makes the rivalry relevant nationally is both programs are typically always good. But in recent seasons one team was just a shade better than the other going into the game.
    Last year U of L went into the game with the more complete roster and came out with a 80-77 win.

  • Dragons to host inagural...

    South Oldham’s girls have hosted the Lady Dragon Invitational for a few years now, but there wasn’t an equivalent tournament on the boys side.
    That will change this weekend when the Dragons host the John Fendley Classic in Crestwood.
    Play will start at 2 p.m. Thursday and will continue through Saturday night.
    “We’ve never had a boys tournament here before,” coach Steve Simpson said. “Some of the parents were interested in getting some more home games, so we asked some people to raise some money and they did.”

  • North boys swim past Collegiate

    North Oldham’s boys swimming team out-paced Louisville Collegiate, 75.5-71.5 Dec. 18 at Collegiate.

    A North relay team of Sam Zaepfel, Luc Brazeau, Arseniy Semenov and Jack McCormick won the 200-yard medley relay with a time of 1:52.60.

    Brazeau won the 200-yard IM with a time of 2:19.59.

    Danny Walker won the 50-yard free with a time of :26.85.

    Semenov won the 100-yard fly with a time of :55.65.

    Mark Scherer won the 100-yard free with a time :54.63.

  • South finishes 6th in Lady...

    CRESTWOOD – At halftime Sunday, South Oldham looked like it would finish its home tournament with a winning record.

    South, which had gone 1-1 in its first two games at the Lady Dragon Invitational, led Boone County 21-11 after the second quarter of the fifth-place game.

    But the Lady Dragons scored just six points in the second half and fell 45-27 to the Lady Rebels to finish sixth in their event.

  • OHS big men too much for OC

    BUCKNER – Coy Zerhusen said earlier this week Owensboro would be the best team Oldham County had played to this point in the year.

    The Red Devils went out and proved the Colonels' coach right Thursday night.

    Owensboro forwards Justin Miller and Aric Holman scored 24 and 20 points, respectively, as the Red Devils handed OC its first loss of the year, 86-68, on the first day of the Best in Hoops Tournament.

    Owensboro (3-2) put the game out of reach in the third quarter with a 13-3 run that stretched a 46-40 lead to 59-43.

  • North, South swim in Woodford

    North Oldham scored a combined 509.5 Saturday to finish second at the 11th Annual Woodford County Invitational Swim Meet in Versailles.

    North finished second only to Elizabethtown (817.5). South Oldham (346) placed seventh in the 16-team meet.

    On the girls side North (256.5) placed third behind E’Town (448) and Woodford County (324). South (101) finished seventh.

    South freshman Lydia Jackson won the girls 500-yard free (5:16.33) and 200-yard free (2:00.18).

  • Colonels host Best in Hoops...

    One weekend before they head to the sunshine of San Diego, the Oldham County Colonels will host the Best in Hoops Tournament this weekend.

    The tournament brings together eight state teams for three days of competition.

    Teams are first put into two pools of four. After playing round robin pool schedules, teams then play a representative from the opposite pool based on seeding.

    This will be the third year OC has hosted the event. The Colonels went 4-0 in the event last year, beating Bracken County, Southern, Central and DuPont Manual.

  • Levitch living his dream as U...

    David Levitch was in a familiar place when the University of Louisville Cardinals took the floor this fall for their first scrimmage at the KFC Yum! Center.

    Levitch, a lifelong U of L fan, grew up going to games with his parents at the Yum! Center and, before that, Freedom Hall.

    But this time Levitch wasn’t in the stands with his mom or dad. He was trotting out of the tunnel in a red-and-white warm-up uniform, taking the court as a member of the Cardinals basketball team.

    The environment nearly overwhelmed Levitch at first, he said.

  • County seniors represent schools...

    SHIVELY – The stands were mostly empty, the field was in rough shape, the temperature was in the teens and the game was played with 10-minute quarters instead of the usual 12.

    But for the six North Oldham and South Oldham football seniors who took the field at Western High School Dec. 12, it was one last chance to represent their high schools.

  • Furious North comeback leads to...

    GOSHEN – There wasn’t much hope for North Oldham with four minutes to play Tuesday night.

    The Mustangs trailed North Hardin 60-44. They’d scored just eight points in the second half, struggling with turnovers, shooting and rebounding.

    But a Jon Jon Henry basket and free throws led to a Chris Burton three. That led to a Henry three and a Trevor Burton 3-point play.

    In just a few possessions, North Oldham got back in the game.
