    By RANDY HEITE

    Jace Bryant started his tenure as the Oldham County girls basketball coach with a bang as his Lady Colonels defeated Bardstown 73-20.
    Oldham County got an early jump on the Cougars, going on a 10-0 run in the first four minutes and holding on from there. Though Bardstown tried to catch up throughout the game, the Colonels proved to be too strong.
    Senior Jessica Leanhart and junior Ashley McMurtrey took over the first quarter, scoring 18 of the team’s 22 points.

  • South survives last second...

    It took until the last few seconds to put the game away, but the South Oldham junior varsity team survived a scare against St. Xavier Monday night, dispatching the hosting Tigers 38-26.
    Despite the late game theatrics, South Oldham jumped to a quick lead in the contest and held its own throughout, never surrendering the advantage.
    That’s not to say they didn’t try, letting St. X stage a late rally due to sloppy play and a lack of rebounding. After trailing by 11 entering the final frame, the Tigers went on a 17-8 run to close the gap.

    Heading into her junior season, Oldham County softball player Cynthia Leaton only had one goal in mind — to make her college decision before the year was up. Three months later, she finally did, verbally committing to the University of Dayton.
    Though she made it official on Nov. 14, the journey to get there started over a year before.

  • Back to the hardwood: Mustangs...

    Welcoming North Oldham to Buckner, Oldham County Middle School was an unkind host in its three middle school games with the Mustangs on Thursday night, stealing two of three.
    The Colonels picked up wins in their first two games by a combined score of 82-58 but in the 8th grade nightcap, North Oldham managed to steal back some thunder, knocking out OC 45-34.
    Jalen Henry was the high scorer for the Mustangs with 14.
    No Oldham County player reached double digits.

  • 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.
