Today's Sports

  • State Cross Country Champs

    LEXINGTON — For the first two miles of the KHSAA Class 2A boys’ championship cross country race, North Oldham senior Taylor Sanders stayed in pursuit but bided his time.

  • Grand Stamm: Stunning Soccer...

    Since I began covering sports in 2002 for my high school newspaper in Rowan County, I have regularly worked with athletic officials at the collegiate and high school levels.

    It might just be in passing or it might be to ask an off-the-record question and I feel like I’ve had a good relationship when I’ve interacted with these officials.

    I find many are friendly and helpful, even humorous.

  • Third time's not the charm

    LOUISVILLE --- Two times with under four minutes to play, North Oldham senior quarterback Cameron Renaud was intercepted. A fumble and a turnover on downs gave the Mustangs another chance, but the third time would not be the charm.

    Renaud’s third interception of the fourth quarter, with 59.3 seconds to play, sealed a 28-19 win for Western in the second round of the Class 4A state playoffs Friday night.

  • Looking For Land

    On a chilly Thursday night in late October around dusk, “Final Countdown,” blares from speakers hooked up to a maroon Honda Odyssey mini-van.

    The van, parked in the middle of a grassy area at Briar Hill Park gives the Falcons and Jaguars, two Oldham County Youth Football League teams, background music to amp up their practice.

  • North boys, South girls win...

    From the beginning of the Class 2A Region 3 cross country championship race on Saturday, North Oldham senior Taylor Sanders had a certain mindset.

    Sanders made it through the first two miles in 10:23, breezing to a time of 16:10.15 to win the boys’ race at Shelby County High School. His next closest competitor was South Oldham junior runner-up Leonard Faul, who finished in 16:49.00.

    Thanks to Sanders’ run, the Mustangs took the boys’ team championship with 25 total points.

  • Scott County too much for Oldham

    GEORGETOWN --- As Oldham County entered its first playoff game against Scott County the Colonels didn’t think they would be in the situation they were in.

    Oldham started the game with their third string quarterback in, Dalton Thompson a sophomore, making his first start in the most important game of the season. They also didn’t expect their leading running back to be sidelined in the game due to misconduct.

  • South rally comes up short

    LAWRENCEBURG --- Anderson County broke a 26-all tie with 4:50 to play, then held on to defeat visiting South Oldham, 33-26 in the first round of the state Class 5A football playoffs Friday night.

    Bearcats senior running back Ethan Kelly burst through a gaping hole in the right side of the Dragons’ defense for a 4-yard touchdown run midway through the fourth quarter.

    The season comes to a close for South Oldham, who finishes 6-5.

  • North last Oldham standing

    GOSHEN --- It wasn’t pretty, but North Oldham coach Billy Martin said afterward that he’d take it.

    The Mustangs scored the game’s first 29 points en route to a 42-20 win over visiting Valley in the first round of the Class 4A state football playoffs on Friday.

    But North Oldham didn’t make it easy on itself.

  • Fryman rallies to win state

    Early on, North Oldham eighth grader Trenton Fryman trailed at the KTCCCA Meet of Champions on Saturday in Lexington. 

    It was an unfamiliar position, but Fryman stayed patient. Near the two-mile mark of the 4K race at Masterson Station Park, Fryman made his move. He jetted into the lead and held on to win the boys’ middle school state championship in 13:43.19.

  • Greenwood outlasts North in...

    LOUISVILLE --- Before the third game of the semi-final of the KHSAA State Volleyball Tournament, the music was fitting.

    The song, “Going the Distance,” from the movie, “Rocky” played over the sound system at Bellarmine’s Knights Hall. It certainly was a heavyweight battle and in the end, Greenwood had enough to outlast North Oldham 25-17, 27-29, 25-15.
