    With Tuesday night’s district showdown between rivals South and North Oldham looming, the Dragons took to the court a little early Jan. 29, ending the school day with a blacklight themed pep rally to prepare students for one of the most important games of the season ­— a rivalry game that was the deciding factor for the 29th district race.
    In addition to recognizing many winter athletes, the rally pitted students against their peers and the faculty members in a series of challenges, including a dance-off.

  • South Oldham rolls past Trimble...

    Nearly 10 months after closing the 2011-12 with a loss in the regional final, the South Oldham Lady Dragons took the first step Monday in a return appearance, sweeping their district schedule with a 56-39 win over Trimble County.

  • Oldham County girls roll past...

    It took a little while for the Oldham County Lady Colonels to get started Wednesday night but once they did, there was no looking back as they trounced rival North Oldham 77-38 to move into second place in the 29th district.

    Through the first six minutes of the game though, North Oldham, not OC, looked to be the team with all the momentum, grinding out to a quick 13-7 lead behind tough interior play from forward Taylor Moore.

    A strong showing in a stacked Dragon Invitational field isn’t the only thing going John Skirkey’s way as the wrestling season begins to wind down.

Now, nearly three months later, it’s safe to say they’ve navigated it with grace, clinching the No. 1 seed in the 29th district tournament Jan. 16 with a 59-35 win over rival North Oldham.
