  • EOMS wrestlers score big at...

    East Oldham Middle School wrestlers Jacob McClintic and Nate Wheeler traveled to Independence, Mo., April 13 and 14 to compete in the Brute National Wrestling Tournament. There were 33 states represented at this tournament.
    The first round of wrestling began on Friday and McClintic started off strong with a win by pin in the first round over a wrestler from Illinois.
    From there, he won his next two matches to advance to the finals, not allowing a point to be scored on him.

  • Destiny is key for Ky. Derby

    By Chuck Harper

    Webster’s Dictionary defines destiny as “the hidden power believed to control what will happen in the future; fate.”
    The 139th running of the Kentucky Derby will have no short supply of destiny.
    Didn’t it just seem to you that the Louisville Cardinals were on a mission to cut down the nets in Atlanta? When Kevin Ware (No. 5, remember that number) went down with that devastating leg injury, it just gave them more resolve to win the whole thing.
    Destiny? Probably.
    Kentucky Derby 139 and the 2013 NCAA Tournament have some interesting things in common.

  • David Levitch plays in...
  • South Oldham evens OC series...

    It was wet and wild but South Oldham found a way to win, outlasting rival Oldham County 5-4 April 17 in a game delayed for 45 minutes because of lightning.
    For the second time this season, the Dragons turned the table on a district opponent that had previously beaten them, upending the Colonels one day after a 5-2 loss muddied the district picture.
    But early on, it looked like OC was the team to beat.

  • North, OC claim titles at Oldham...

    Taking to Goshen for the Oldham County Championships, both the North Oldham and Oldham County track and field teams captured big wins April 18, laying claim as the county’s best.

  • North Oldham improves to 4-1 in...

    Needing a win to stay alive in the district race, the North Oldham took a huge step closer to securing the 29th District’s No. 1 seed Tuesday night, dispatching Oldham County 7-1 to move to 4-1 in district play.
    The Mustangs didn’t waste any time getting started, plating one run in the bottom of the inning on a sacrifice fly from catcher Peter Sohn.
    They added two more in the bottom of the second following an error and a bases-loaded walk.

  • OC increases stanglehold on 29th...

    After entering the 2013 season with a 16-0 record against district teams over the past two seasons, the Oldham County Lady Colonels are at it again, claiming their first two victories of this year’s district campaign in convincing fashion.
    Fresh off embarrassing Trimble County 11-0 April 9, Oldham County made short work of South Oldham Wednesday night, blitzing the Lady Dragons 9-0.
    But that doesn’t mean Oldham County was flawlesss.

  • South Oldham baseball team routs...

    Just two days removed from an 8-5 loss to rival North Oldham, the South Oldham Dragons evened the season series Friday night, routing the Mustangs 13-6 to claim their first district win of the season.
    After a frustrating performance in the team’s first meeting, South Oldham coach Matt Wilson said he was proud of his team’s play in round two.
    “We came out together as a team and we changed what we did from Tuesday,” Wilson said, smiling. “We came out on top, and we came out big with 13 runs.”

  • Oldham County shakes up district...

    After opening its season on a rough note, the Oldham County baseball team took a huge step toward righting the ship Tuesday night, dismantling rival South Oldham 5-2 to claim sole ownership of the 29th district lead.
    They certainly looked the part against the Dragons, mixing strong pitching and timely hits in the game’s opening innings to take control and never look back.
    Left-fielder Austin Norman started the scoring for the Colonels in the bottom of the first, ripping an RBI double to right field, and pitcher Sean Holton followed with an RBI single.
