  • Colonel football moving from 6A...

    A re-classification could restore some old rivalries and add significance to at least one current one for Oldham County football.

    The Colonels will move from Class 6A to 5A on the gridiron, the KHSAA announced last week. OC’s move was one of several made by teams in the 4A, 5A and 6A levels.

  • Colonel baseball upsets St. X

    BUCKNER – You don't beat one of the state's top teams without a few bumps and bruises to show for it.

    Oldham County's Tanner Hennings had a big bruise Monday night. The senior left-fielder took a pitch off the bottom half of his right thumb in the bottom of the fifth. Hennings said after the game he thought it was broken.

    One inning later, right after St. Xavier had turned a 7-2 OC lead into a 7-6 margin, Hennings got a big two-RBI single to push the Colonel lead to 9-6.

  • Notebook: Hoptown's Henry...

    LEXINGTON – Hopkinsville's Demarius Henry could've fit right into a South Oldham jersey Wednesday afternoon.

    Overall the Tigers (31-2) shot 7-of-17 on 3-pointers, matching the same number hit by South (7-of-29) on 12 fewer attempts.

    Henry set the tone for that shooting performance, hitting four 3's in the first quarter. He finished with 15 points.
