  • South Oldham rolls past Atherton...

    Opening the Henry County Invitiational Tournament against Atherton Dec. 27, the South Oldham Dragons made short work of the Rebels, jumping out to a 21-8 lead and never looking back.

    "We didn't have a good warm up so we were kind of worried that we would kind of come out flat," South coach Steve Simpson said. "Well, we came out okay but then they kind of tied it up from there. The rest of the quarter we went on a good run. I was pretty pleased with our start. From that point on, we kind of treaded water but all wins are good wins."

  • South Oldham picks up their...

    Walking off the floor on Dec. 18, the South Oldham Lady Dragons couldn’t help but smile. Though the game they just played wasn’t pretty by any means — a narrow 54-51 win over North Bullitt — what it signified was. In addition to providing their first win of the season, coach Christy Higdon hopes it also provides a boost moving forward.

  • North Oldham girls participate...

    During a month filled with plenty of basketball, the North Oldham girls’ basketball team found time to take a step away from the game recently, donating their time and energy to bring the Christmas spirit to Crum’s Lane Elementary in Louisville.
    Though the team has participated in similar community service events in years past, including adopting a family last season, coach Dan Pfaff said they were looking for a more personal approach this year.

  • Oldham County rolls past Central...

    Entering Friday night’s semifinal matchup in the Best in Hoops, Central High School hadn’t surrendered more than 60 points in a game.
    It took the Oldham County Colonels all of three quarters to reach that mark, coming out of the gates firing to jump up 41-33 at the break.
    The Colonel’s pace didn’t slow in the second half either, as the tandem of guards Jacob Kopp and Sam Gruber kept the Yellowjackets at bay with timely plays down the stretch.
    None would be bigger than a clutch 3-point play to break Central’s back in the fourth quarter.

    Despite a 15-point outburst from guard Trevor Burton, North Oldham couldn’t find a way past visiting Elizabethtown, dropping a 50-45 contest to the Panthers. David Levitch, the team’s leading scorer on the season, never managed to find a rhythm, contributing just 12 points on the night — well below his average.
    No other North Oldham player cracked double-digits.

    In 2009, 6-year-old Goshen resident McKenna Pyle had something very important she wanted to share with her mother, Lori — she felt she was supposed to be doing more in the world to serve others.

    Now, almost three years later, that’s about to come true in a very big way as the family prepares to finalize the adoption of three children from Sierra Leone, Africa.

    When Ashley McMurtrey hit the final free-throw to win the game with just 0.3 seconds left in last year’s District semifinals, Trimble County vowed for revenge. On Friday night, their opportunity arose. The result was a 65-57 win for the Colonels, marking another key victory for Oldham County.

    It didn't take long for South Oldham to assert themselves during Thursday night's game against Western Hills, blitzing the hapless Wolverines 91-47 in a track meet that was over almost as soon as it began.
