  • North Oldham wins Oldham County...

    For the third year in a row, the North Oldham swim team walked away from the Oldham Championships Dec. 22, claiming eight girls’ events and four boys’ events.
    But unlike in years’ past, this meet came down to the wire.
    “This year was the closest meet ever between first and second,” North Oldham swim coach Kris Krohn said, “It was a very exciting meet with great results.”
    Despite not winning the boys’ or girls’ portions of the event, the Mustangs were able to pull out a win with two second place finishes.

  • Oldham County girls roll 75-41

    By RANDY HEITE

    Oldham County’s Lady Colonels defeated Atherton Dec. 28, moving to 6-5 on the season. The win moved them into the finals of Oldham County’s Holiday Invitational, where they faced Fairdale High School in a game that was played after press time.
    Oldham County came out of the gates firing, taking control of the game with their defense and fast break offense to open up 14-2 run to start the first quarter.
    Atherton attempted to slow down the Lady Colonels with a time out but Oldham County finished the quarter leading 16-6.

  • South Oldham, Oldham County set...

    Some things in life will never change — death, taxes and, since 1989, the rivalry between South Oldham and Oldham County.
    That certainly won’t be the case this season anyways as the schools meet on the hardwood once again, taking to Oldham County Jan. 4 for the rivalry’s 25th regular season meeting.
    And like most years, postseason implications will be on the line as inside shot at the district’s No. 1 seed awaits the winner.

  • David Levitch breaks school...

    After grinding it out with Tates Creek for the first 16 minutes in the opening round of the Henry County Invitational Tournament on Dec. 27, the North Oldham Mustangs got on the throttle in the second half, using a 36-23 run to claim a 55-45 win over the Commodores.
    Senior David Levitch had an especially impressive night, racking up 28 points and breaking the North Oldham scoring record.
    They’ll return to the floor at 7:30 p.m. Jan. 4 as they travel to Iroquois High School for a showdown with the Raiders.

  • 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.

    BOYS’ BASKETBALL
    ELIZABETHTOWN 50,
    NORTH OLDHAM 45
    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.
    The Mustangs return to the floor at 6:30 p.m. Dec. 21 as they take on Sheldon Clark in the Lexington Christian Classic.
