    Faced with playing the last game ever on their home court, Oldham County’s five seniors had a choice: make a statement or rack up a third loss at home.

    The Colonels decided to make a statement.

    Led by senior Hayden Hawes’ 19 points, the Colonels (23-4) blitzed Christian Academy Louisville 67-46 Friday night.

  • Swim: Olgesby breaks another...

    Led by its standout girls squad, the North Oldham swim team finished a solid second in the team combined scores at the KHSAA Region 5 swim meet last week.

    The Mustangs, were runner-up to DuPont Manual High School by three points, with the title coming down to the final event, North Oldham coach Randy Scherer said.

    “We did much better than we thought,” he said. “We lost by about three points out of 400. We had a pretty good showing that will move onto state.”

  • Lady Mustangs struggle against...

    The score suggested otherwise, but Thursday’s game between Shelby County and the Lady Mustangs left much to be desired by both coaching staffs.

    The Lady Rockets (23-50, one of the top teams in the 8th Region, easily dispatched North Oldham (14-12) on its home court, 58-31, to assert itself as one of the few teams that could win the region in a few weeks. But while the final score wasn’t close, North Oldham coach Dan Pfaff said they are positives for his team to take out of the loss.

  • John picks the Wildcats

    Faced with a need, the University of Kentucky football team didn’t have to look far to find a solution to a thinning depth chart at linebacker.

    Instead, the Wildcats plucked South Oldham linebacker Connor John from Crestwood to join the team next season.

    John, an honorable mention all-state player and co-MVP of the Border Bowl, announced his commitment to UK roughly two weeks ago. John, who confirmed he would play linebacker at UK, committed as a preferred walk-on.
