  • North Oldham upends OC

    Heading into the 2012-13 season, North Oldham basketball coach Chris Stobaugh knew a team would eventually succeed in stopping David Levitch.
    He also knew that his team could continue playing at a high level in that situation as long as another player stepped up.
    Check and check.
    Though Oldham County held Levitch well below his season average on Jan. 11, the Mustangs got plenty of help from junior sharp shooter Trevor Burton to pull off an emotional 49-36 win.

  • Colonels knock off Trinity,...

    It came down to the two of their final wrestlers but Oldham County managed to knock off No. 11 Trinity High School 35-34 Jan. 12 for their second win in as many meets.
    After picking up an early lead on a 7-3 John Shirkey decision and a pin by Connor Wilkerson, the Colonels grappled with Trinity for the next eight weight classes, trading the lead multiple times. That set up a heroic final push from the Colonels as a pin from Alex Meyers in the 220-pound class put them in position to steal the meet with a pin by Brady Emerson.

  • The Art of Basketball: South...

    On the basketball court, Shae Goodlett is as intense a player as you can find.
    Off it though, he has a slightly softer side.
    Goodlett, a center for South Oldham known for his grit and intensity, is also an artist.
    Not just any artist though — a cartoonist.

  • South Oldham outlasts North in...

    It took four quarters and then some to decide the championship game of the Henry County Invitational Tournament, but once the dust settled on Dec. 29, South Oldham was the last team standing after a gutsy 80-75 overtime win over rival North Oldham.
    Out of the gate, it looked like North might have a puncher’s chance, getting 14 crucial first quarter points from guard David Levitch to take a 19-14 advantage through the first eight minutes.
    But from there, South settled down, opening up a 21-12 run to retake the lead at halftime at 35-31.

  • South Oldham wins OC January...

    While the South Oldham boys’ and girls’ basketball teams picked up wins on the hardwood over the weekend, swimmers claimed first-place finishes in the Oldham County January Invitational.
    Jared Ashcraft was the top individual boys’ finisher for the Sea Dragons, grabbing first place in both the boys’ 100- and 200-yard freestyle events. Savannah Walker was the top female swimmer for South, finishing first in the 500-yard freestyle and second in the 100-yard breaststroke.

    Traveling to Woodford County for the last weekend of 2012, all three local wrestling teams competed in the Woodford County Invitational.
    Of those, Oldham County was the highest finisher, grabbing fifth place with a score of 161. North Oldham and South Oldham finished back-to-back at 16th and 17th with scores of 76 and 65, respectively.

  • South Oldham rallies from 8-...

    For the first 16 minutes of Friday night’s heavyweight showdown between rivals Oldham County and South Oldham, defense was at a premium. Though both squad’s entered the game averaging more than 65 points a contest, neither found their rhythm early on, grinding out to a 22-14 Oldham County lead at halftime.
    That all changed after the break as the Dragons roared to life early in the third quarter and never let up, outscoring the Colonels 35-22 down the stretch to claim a gutsy 49-44 win and improve to 2-0 in 29th district play.

  • South Oldham delivers knockout...

    The South Oldham Lady Dragons may have started the season 2-11 but that didn’t matter Jan. 4 as they traveled to Buckner for a district showdown with rival Oldham County.
    After falling behind 3-0 in the game’s opening minutes, the Lady Dragons went on the offensive the rest of the way, going toe-to-toe with the Lady Colonels over the next two quarters.
    That would lead to a slim 17-20 halftime advantage and all the momentum South Oldham needed as they pushed ahead from there, outscoring Oldham County 20-13 in the fourth quarter to win 54-43.
