  • Mustangs get rematch with...

    One month ago North Oldham drove south to Shelbyville with hopes of winning a district title and clinching home field for most of the Class 4A playoffs.

    Those plans were smashed when Collins sent the Mustangs back home with a 35-6 defeat. It was a game where anything that could’ve gone wrong went wrong, coach Billy Martin said at the time.

    But now North gets a second chance at the Titans and it’ll come with even more on the line.

  • Dragons’ season ends in...

    CRESTWOOD – Friday night’s result between South Oldham and Franklin County wasn’t reflective of the teams on the field, according to South coach Jamie Reed.

    “The better team didn’t win tonight,” Reed said. “That’s for certain.”

    But it was a combination of Dragon errors and a monster performance by Franklin County’s Chris Roberts that led to a 27-21 loss Friday at Dragon Stadium in the second round of the Class 5A playoffs.

  • Saints kick cancer, kick off new...

    BUCKNER -- The River City Saints indoor soccer team lost their exhibition game 7-5 to a team from Evansville, Ind., Saturday at the YMCA of Greater Louisville.

    But for the Saints, the night was still a success.

    The event known as the Kick Cancer game raised $300 for the Susan G. Komen Foundation and for Team KCT, a fund supporting Kailen Combs Taylor, a Buckner native.

    Taylor, a University of Kentucky student, was diagnosed last year with Stage 4 breast cancer. She had already been dealing with a blood clot disorder and Crohn’s disease.

  • Wrestling background pays off...

    Ichiro Vance has received his fair share of football accolades.

    The Eastern Kentucky University linebacker was named all-conference the last two seasons. This season Vance was named a semifinalist for the Campbell Award, an award that recognizes a college football player’s academics, community service and on-field performance.

    All those honors came after a decorated football career at Oldham County High School.

  • Former OC runner competing at...

    Kevin Montgomery originally didn’t set out to be a runner.

    From the age of six, his love was baseball, and he played for 11 years in the South Oldham Little League. He ultimately started at second base for the Oldham County High School freshman team when he was in 8th grade, and he went on to play two more years at OC.

    This Saturday, though, the 2012 OC grad will be with the Tennessee Wesleyan College cross-country team that will compete at the NAIA Nationals in Lawrence, Kan.

  • Stephens: 'Cats fine-tuning...

    LEXINGTON – It's not even Thanksgiving and John Calipari's University of Kentucky basketball team is miles ahead of where most coaches could hope their teams will be at the end of a year.

    The Wildcats notched a solid-but-not perfect win over Texas-Arlington, 105-76, Tuesday night in Rupp Arena.

    They were out-rebounded 21-17 in the first half, weren't talking enough on defense and weren't executing well in half-court for much of the night.

  • North runs over Western to...

     LOUISVILLE ‑‑ All it took was one play for North Oldham to exert its dominance over fellow Class 4A school Western on the Warriors' home field Friday night.

    North running back Arien Beasley raced 60 yards for a touchdown on the very first play from scrimmage and the Mustangs (9-3) never looked back in a 49-6 rout of the Warriors (6-6).

    “We played really well, in all phases of the game,” North coach Billy Martin said. “It was a dominating performance I knew our guys were capable of.”
