  • Simpson honored for milestone

    As South Oldham High School boys’ basketball players performed warm-up drills before their home game against Spencer County Feb. 16, Dragons’ Coach Steve Simpson went through his routine as well.

    He chatted with players and coaches and scoured his notes.

    But before the teams made their way to mid-court for the tip-off, SOHS athletic director Mitchell Irvin grabbed a microphone and led Simpson to the court.

    BEDFORD — As a missed shot by Oldham County High School senior guard Parker Simpson caromed off the rim, senior guard Kerry Smith came leaping in towards the rim un guarded from the left post.

    Smith attempted to dunk the ball but lost the handle.

    The ball popped up in the air as high as the top of the backboard and swished through the net on its way back down.

  • Tennis takeover

    They stand in the normal starting position for doubles — La Grange 12-year-old Paul Reynolds in the backcourt with his brother Brent Reynolds, 9, at the net.

    Their private instructor at the Louisville Tennis Club, Simon Childs, rockets a serve that Paul deftly returns with a forehand.

    Childs then returns with a drop shot that Brent quickly slides right for and fires back towards Childs, who hits the ball into the net.

    The boys are part of a growing interest in tennis in Oldham County.

  • Biking through buildings and the...

    After avoiding black ice on Second and Third Avenues in La Grange, Crestwood’s Alan Keeling steered his bike up a ramp and into the lobby of The Oldham Era’s office.

    Keeling quickly ran into his biggest obstacle.

    After entering the office, Keeling’s glasses fogged, clouding his vision.

    But Keeling adjusted to the visual challenge to win the seventh leg of the La Grange Urban Short Track Series Feb. 11.
