  • Saying goodbye

    Writing a goodbye column is never easy. I know because I’ve written this one about a half dozen times already.
    No matter how many times I try to put the words to paper, they just don’t seem to makes much sense. None of it really does right now.

    I started this job almost 15 months ago and since the very beginning have loved nearly every second. Part of that has been the fact that my time here has overlapped with one of the most special years in Oldham County history.

  • South Oldham swimmer breaks...

    Taking to the pool at the University of Louisville’s Ralph Wright Natatorium July 20, South Oldham swimmer Julia Roy clocked an impressive time in the 11-12-year old girls’ 100-meter butterfly, winning the race and breaking a 36-year-old state record set by Mary T. Meagher with a time of 1:03.92.

    Meagher set the record for 12 and under girls with a time of 1:04.20 on January 7, 1977.

    Prior to the race, Roy’s previous lifetime best had been 1:05.05.

  • Bringing home hardware

    The Kentucky Tae kwon do and Fitness Academy may put more emphasis on improvement  than accolades but that doesn’t mean the martial arts school in Crestwood hasn’t seen its fair share of medals over the years.

    After watching former student Kendall Yount capture two gold medals at the USA Tae kwon do National Championships in July 2012, the school is at it again, racking up nine medals at the 2013 USAT Tae kwon do National Championships July 2-8 in Chicago, Ill.

  • Buckeye State of Mind: Oldham...

    Ohio State was looking for a kicker and it didn’t take them long to find one, picking up a commitment from Oldham County’s Sean Nuernberger after a kicking camp in Columbus June 12.
    Nuernberger, a first team All-State kicker for the Colonels and Ohio State’s 10th commitment for the 2014 class, said it was an easy decision after the coaching staff offered. So easy that he accepted on the spot.

  • North Oldham, OC win district...

  • South Oldham, OC advance in...

    Both South Oldham and Oldham County took a step closer to the regional championship game, winning their opening round games of the Eighth region tournament Monday night as South Oldham upended Simon Kenton 5-4 and Oldham County rallied to beat Henry County 8-3.

    As the first local team to take the field during the Eighth Region tournament, the South Oldham Lady Dragons showed out in their opener with Simon Kenton, dispatching the Lady Pioneers 5-4.

  • North Oldham falls in semifinals...

    For the first time in three seasons, the Eighth Region will have a new champion when state tournament play begins next week as the North Oldham Mustangs were dealt a stunning 6-2 loss by Spencer County in semifinal play.
    Normally sharp, North Oldham looked out of sorts against a Spencer County squad it had beaten 3-1 May 13, committing plenty of mental errors in the game’s opening innings.
    Despite drawing first blood on a wild pitch in the top of the first, North handed back the lead minutes later on a pair of RBI singles by the Bears.

  • OC, SOUTH ADVANCE

    Taking to the field in the opening round of the 29th District softball tournament Tuesday night, reigning champion Oldham County looked rusty, edging the No. 4 North Oldham Lady Mustangs 6-2.
    After jumping on North for an early 3-1 lead, things slowed down considerably for coach Steve Leanhart’s squad as they failed to score again until the fifth inning
    Sarah Lopesilvero broke the drought with one out, hitting into a fielder’s choice that scored Rayne Shelton.

  • LOCAL TEAMS COMPETE AT STATE...

    Entering Friday’s Class AA Track and Field Championships, North Oldham’s Maggie Mollak just wanted to be competitive in both of her events.
    When she was finished at the University of Louisville’s Cardinal Park, it was mission accomplished — and more.
    Mollak, a sophomore, opened up the night by earning a third place finish in the shot put, then capped off her season by claiming a state championship in the discus.
    She is the only competitor from Oldham County able to make that claim.

  • Tennis pair advance to Round of...

    After claiming Eighth Region singles’ titles Thursday, May 9, South Oldham siblings Jordan and Steffi Pitts continued their strong run through the postseason in Lexington, advancing to the round of 16 in the KHSAA state tennis tournament.
    Jordan, a freshman at South Oldham, opened up the tournament with a 6-2; 6-1 win and cruised 6-0; 6-1 in the second round. He met his match in the tournament’s third round, falling to Kentucky Country Day’s Collier Bouchillon 6-0;6-3.
