  • Oldham County finishes in second...

    Their competition didn’t end quite the way they hoped, the Oldham County wrestling team performed well nonetheless, grabbing a second place showing in a tough field at the Oldham Superduals.
    After defeating Jeffersonville, Ind., 67-9, the Colonels dispatched Apollo 63-13, LaRue County 39-36 and perennial power Woodford County in the semifinals 36-27.
    That earned them the right to take on Simon Kenton in the finals but the boys in blue ran out of steam, dropping 57-12 to the Pioneers.

  • Local teams compete at Louisville

    All six local swim teams took to the water Nov. 30 to compete in one last swim meet before the month of December, traveling to the University of Louisville for a showdown with Christian Academy.
    Each team was without a few key swimmers and their absences were certainly felt as CAL finished in first in both boys’ and girls’ competition.
    South Oldham and Oldham County finished in second place for the boys and girls, respectively, without top swimmers Jared Ashcraft and Emma Skinner.

  • Baseball player signs to play...

    On Nov. 26, North Oldham shortstop Connor Heady signed a national letter of intent to play baseball at the University of Kentucky.
    Unlike most of his fellow signees, this appears to be just the beginning of the decision-making process for the All-State shortstop.
    While a roster slot waits for him in Lexington, Heady expects to have another big decision to make come summer — whether to play professional baseball.
    Heady believes a selection in the top five rounds of the Major League Baseball amateur draft isn’t out of the question.
