  • South Oldham wins home tournament

    CRESTWOOD – Last weekend’s John Fendley Classic had a special meaning for South Oldham.

    Fourteen years ago Fendley’s wife, then-South principal Barbara Fendley, hired coach Steve Simpson. 

  • Dragons overcome Johnson, J...

    CRESTWOOD – On a night where offense shined, a South Oldham defensive play was the difference in Friday night’s game.

    Senior Dragon guard Drew Greenwood took the ball from Jeffersontown’s Brandon Johnson as he went up for the game-tying 3-pointer with South leading 105-102 in the final seconds of double overtime. The Dragons won 107-104, clinching a spot in the championship game of their home tournament, the inaugural John Fendley Classic.

    South will meet Franklin County at 8 p.m. Saturday for the title.

  • Henry's game-winner caps...

    CRESTWOOD – On a team full of veterans, it was the newcomer who made the big shot Friday afternoon.

    North Oldham’s Jon Jon Henry hit a 17-foot jumper with 1.3 seconds left to give the Mustangs (4-6) a 52-51 over South Warren in the second round of the John Fendley Classic at South Oldham. The shot capped a 15-point second half comeback for North (4-6).

    The Mustangs will meet Ryle at 4 p.m. Saturday in the tournament’s fifth place game.

  • 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.
