  • North boys hold on to beat South...

    SHELBYVILLE – North Oldham boys soccer was in a familiar position at halftime Thursday night.

    Just eight days before, North had led South 1-0 at halftime of the District 29 final. The Dragons roared back with three second half goals to win 3-1.

    The Mustangs were again up 1-0 Thursday in the championship game of the Region 8 tournament at Collins High School. Only this time, things ended differently than before.

  • OC Girls Repeat as Region 8...

     For the first 55 minutes of the Region 8 Girls Soccer Championship, it looked as if the third meeting between Oldham County and South Oldham would emulate the first, a 1-0 victory by the Lady Colonels (21-0-1).

    But the next six minutes proved OC’s repeat as regional champs would be more like the second meeting between the two schools, as the Lady Colonels routed South 4-0 for the second time this year.

    Junior Kasey Kraus opened up the floodgates for OC with 26 minutes left in the second period, scoring the first goal of the game.

  • North, South boys meet for...

    South Oldham was in a similar situation one year ago at this time.

    The Dragons had split their two regular season matchups with Oldham County and beaten the Colonels in the District 29 title. The teams met a fourth time in the Region 8 championship game, and South beat OC 2-0.

    This season South split two regular season games with North Oldham and beat the Mustangs 3-1 in last week's District 29 final. Now the Dragons will play North a fourth time, with everything on the line.

  • South football claims first...

    TAYLOR MILL – South Oldham’s road to the Class 5A, District 5 title was filled with four distinct tests.

      The Dragons had to best Kentucky quarterback commit Drew Barker and Conner Sept. 27, avoid a letdown against Grant County Oct. 4, beat defending state runner-up Cooper Oct. 11 and stop undefeated Scott’s powerful run game Friday at Eagle Stadium.

      South passed the last of those four exams Friday, taking down the Eagles 30-20 and clinching the school’s first outright district title in the process.

  • Mustang football playing for...

      GOSHEN – North Oldham has had a couple of weeks to prepare for its most important regular season game of the year.

      The Class 4A No. 8 Mustangs (6-2, 3-0 4A, District 3) blitzed overmatched Atherton 56-7 on Oct. 17 and now head to Collins Friday for a matchup against the No. 6 Titans (6-2, 3-0).

      The winner Friday in Shelbyville guarantees itself home games for at least the first two playoff rounds, while the loser will likely have a tougher first round matchup and a second round road game.

  • Luck of the Draw

      Some Kentucky hunters might go their whole lives without drawing a tag to hunt bull elk. Ali Powell, La Grange, got one on her first try.

      “My husband had been putting in for years to hunt elk,” Powell said. “When it was time to do it this past year, I told him to put my name in, too. It was the very last day to register.”

      Powell, who is relatively new to hunting, was surprised to learn that she had earned a first-week, bull elk tag for the firearm season, arguably the most coveted draw.
