  • AUDIO: OCHS overcomes poor...

    LEXINGTON — The Oldham County High School boys' basketball team's go-to-player hadn't been himself.

    With four fouls, senior forward Tyler Wesley hadn't scored for the first 31 minutes of the Colonels' 36-34 win over Knott County Central on Friday in the state tournament quarterfinals at Rupp Arena in Lexington.

    But in trying to hold the ball for the final shot, OCHS Coach Jason Holland had no doubt who he planned on turning to for the Colonels' most important shot of the game.

  • OLDHAM IN STATE SEMI-FINALS

    LEXINGTON — For over 31 minutes, the Oldham County high school boys’ basketball team’s leading scorer didn’t score.

    But when his team needed him most, Colonels senior forward Tyler Wesley came through.

    Wesely gave OCHS the lead for good with 3.9 seconds left on a layup and free throw and the Colonels lucked out on missed Knott County Central free throws to come away with a 36-34 win in the quarterfinals of the KHSAA Sweet 16.

    LEXINGTON — Oldham County had to fight to get it, but the Colonels picked up their first win at the KHSAA Sweet 16 since 2003.

    OCHS took the lead with three minutes remaining in the first quarter and never trailed again, taking a 55-48 win over Bowling Green Thursday in the first round of the state tournament at Rupp Arena in Lexington.

    After the game, seniors Tyler Wesley, Sam Gruber and Jacob Kopp addressed reporters at the podium, along with Colonels Coach Jason Holland.

  • Oldham families make signs...

    Julie Gruber knows how important the boys’ basketball state tournament is in Kentucky.

    She found out watching her son, Oldham County High School junior guard Sam Gruber, during the Colonels’ state tournament appearance last year.

    To help energize the team, Julie Gruber and 14 other parents of the OCHS’ boys’ basketball team gathered Sunday in the school’s cafeteria to craft signs showing their well-wishes. The signs will be placed along Ky. 146 for the team to see on their bus ride Wednesday to Rupp Arena in Lexington.

  • Grand Stamm—LIVE! 3.16

    Guys and gals, welcome to our 13th Grand Stamm — LIVE! chat, set for Friday, March 9 at 3 p.m.

    We've got somewhat of a return guest. Well, actually, it's another attempt at a past guest.

  • Grand Stamm: NOHS basketball...

    Once one of the eighth region’s leaders, Nicole Bryant could only spectate the eighth region championship game on Sunday.

    A series of injuries derailed what could have been a banner season for the North Oldham High School senior forward.

    Bryant concluded her high school girls’ basketball career with a 78-43 loss to South Oldham in the 29th district basketball tournament.

    She’s a testament to strong-will and has displayed a willingness to not give up even though she had every opportunity to do so.

  • Special Olympics basketball...

    Their faces are somber, and they’ve shed a few tears.

    The Oldham County All-Stars basketball team just lost its first game of the season. It came in the state tournament no less.

    But coach Bob Osmer isn’t concerned with the outcome.

    He looks each player in the eye and asks one question: “Did you try your best?”

    Two Oldham County teams, the All-Stars and the Eagles, both concluded their seasons March 3 at the Special Olympics state basketball tournament at Hoops Indoor Sports Complex in Louisville.

  • Local athletes run on Mason-...

    LOUISVILLE — Inside Broadbent Arena, it sounds like a stampede.

    But there’s no cattle or horses.

    It’s the sound of runners at full speed on an elevated wooden track with banked corners and older than the Nixon administration.

    A number of Oldham middle school and high school runners conquered the track March 2 and 3 at the Mason-Dixon Games at Broadbent Arena in Louisville. Albeit with a few repairs, the track is the same used in the first running of the games in 1960.
