  • Oldham County falls to Ballard

    Three weeks removed from a week nine matchup with Ballard, Oldham County returned to Pat Crawford Stadium for the second round of Class 6A playoffs and another shot at the Bruins.
    Though the dates were different, the results were all too familiar to coach Matt Brown and the Colonels as they fell 30-14 to close their season.
    Field position was key to the game as Oldham County never found ideal situations to strike.
    Nonetheless, in the first half, the Colonels made their presence felt often, matching Ballard punch for punch.

    Story by RANDY HEITE
    South Oldham’s season came to an end Friday night as they lost to Cooper 49-28.
    Cooper got started quickly with a short 5-yard run by A.J Collins. South Oldham’s Kevin Kuriger had his own 5-yard touchdown with less than a minute left in the first quarter to tie it at 7.
    Cooper’s Tyler Morris would connect with Collins again for a 3-yard-touchdown, but South was not going to let Cooper have the lead for long — senior quarterback Jack Sherry ran it in from 6 yards out. At the half, South Oldham was down 21-14.

  • North Oldham wins state...

    Traveling to Lexington for the KHSAA state cross-country meet over the weekend, all six local teams wrapped up their season in memorable fashion. Five of those finished in the top five of their respective classes.

    Junior Luke Tarvestad led the way for the team from the opening gun, crossing the line at 17:17.71 to claim 11th place.

  • Local teams ready for regional...

    With the 2012 cross country season winding down, local teams are gearing up to take their respective courses at the regional meet. For Oldham County, that means a quick trip down I-71 to EP “Tom” Sawyer Park, while North and South Oldham runners head out to Henry County High School in  Eminence.
    Each will face their own fair share of challenges though.
    Class 2A including NOHS and SOHS will kick things off Saturday with the first race scheduled to start at 10 a.m.
