  • Oldham County girls win Spring...

    OLDHAM CO. 10, BRACKEN CO. 1
    Fresh off knocking out No. 3 Ballard, Oldham County started spring break with a bang Friday night, claiming an 11-1 win over Bracken County in the opening game of pool play in their Spring Break Classic.
    After putting just one run on the board in the top half of the first inning, the Lady Colonels’ offense exploded in the second inning, plating six runs and coasting from there.
    They went on to add four more runs, ending the game after only four innings.

    OCHS (4-1) — 1 6 1 3 - 11 14 1

  • Oldham County softball upends No...

    After facing temperamental weather and plenty of high expectations to start the season, the Oldham County softball team picked up its first big win of the season March 27, upending No. 3 ranked Ballard 5-1.
    That came in large part to an offensive explosion in the game’s sixth inning as a two-out push by the Lady Colonels ended in a four-run swing

  • South Oldham softball run rules...

    With her team clinging to a narrow 2-0 lead, South Oldham junior Courtney Galvan made her second at-bat count Thursday, launching a grand slam over the left-centerfield fence to give the Lady Dragons all the momentum they would need in a 10-0 district win over rival North Oldham.
    In addition to boosting their district record to 1-0, the win also gives South Oldham some revenge after the Lady Mustangs ended their season in last year’s district tournament.

  • Sixth inning push propels...

    After playing Ballard even for five innings, the South Oldham baseball team found itself on the wrong end of a two run swing in the top if the sixth, falling 6-4 to the Bruins Thursday night.

    South Oldham's Alex Straker led the team with two hits, while Straker, Drew Greenwood, Alec Alsup and Jake Karlen added RBIs.

    The Dragons move to 0-2 on the season and will return to the field at 5:30 p.m. March 19 at Christian Academy.

  • South Oldham softball explodes...

    It only took five innings but that was plenty for the South Oldham softball team to route Jeffersontown Thursday night, upending the Lady Chargers 18-2 to improve to 1-1 on the season.

    Danielle Hempel earned the win for the Lady Dragons on the mound, tossing five innings of five hit ball with seven strikeouts.

    Emma Leskody led the team in hits with three, while Courtney Galvan added three RBIs.

    They return to the field tonight, hosting Southern  in a 5:30 p.m. game.

  • Oldham County falls 19-7 to...

    The Oldham County Colonels started the season on a rough note Thursday night, dropping a 19-7 decision to Eastern High School.

    While the Colonels' bats came alive in the team's first game, their defense and pitching left plenty to be desired, committing 12 errors with 11 walks and nine wild pitches.

  • 11-year-old finishes as top...

    At first glance, Katy Chapman looks like any other 11-year-old girl.
    What sets the East Oldham Middle School student apart though is what she’s accomplished in the last few months, finishing first place overall in the women’s division in the Polar Bear Grand Prix race series.
    The series, which consisted of three races over the past three months, pitted more than 2,500 runners of all ages, including adults, against each other.
    Let that sink in: first women’s finisher, 2,500 runners overall.

  • Local dance and cheer squads...

    With a season’s worth of work under their belt, four local dance and cheerleading squads took to the floor in state competition Feb. 23, hoping to be the last team standing.
    The Oldham County dance team had a day to remember in Frankfort, earning two top-three finishes, including second place out of nine teams in the small jazz division and third out of 14 teams in the small hip hop division.
    The North Oldham squad also grabbed third place in the large open division and fourth in the large hip hop division.
