  • Grand Stamm: A crock of LIT

    Maybe it’s determined by strength of schedule or maybe the margin of victory is the biggest factor.

    Either way, no one seems to know just how The Courier-Journal comes up with the Litkenhous Ratings that rank Kentucky high school basketball teams. Yet the ratings could be used to determine the top seed in the 29th district basketball tournament next month.

  • Gnadinger and Rusch come through

    CRESTWOOD – Late in the 182-pound wrestling finals Saturday at the South Oldham Dragon Invitational, Oldham County High School senior Zac Gnadinger broke through a deadlocked match.

    Gnadinger and North Oldham senior Chase Rusch both picked up wins in their weight classes with late moves.

    Thanks to a late grapple, Gnadinger  pulled off a big upset over St. Xavier’s Will Tompkins 3-1. Tompkins is ranked No. 2 in the state in the weight class by KentuckyWrestling.com.

  • Sassy and Shack fall short

    During 2011, they left a number of horses in the dirt.

    But even though thoroughbreds Shackleford and Sassy Image picked up a number of wins, neither could pull off a win as the best horse in their classes.

    Shackleford, a 3-year-old colt and Sassy Image, a 4-year-old filly, fell short for the 2011 Eclipse Awards in Beverly Hills, Calif.

    The horses are trained in Goshen by Dale Romans and both were finalists for this year's awards.

  • SOHS spins its wheels in LIT loss

    LOUISVILLE — It was like South Oldham had its wheels stuck in the mud.

                The Lady Dragons put their foot on the gas and would move a little bit, then they’d shift to reverse and try again, but get advance the same amount out of the rut.

  • Grand Stamm—LIVE! 1.27 CHANGED...

    Guys and gals, welcome to our eighth Grand Stamm — LIVE! chat.

    I hope you all enjoyed last week's chat, with Eric Quigley, the former SOHS tennis phenom who's now a superstar at the University of Kentucky and about to go professional. He really gave us some great tennis insight on his game and tennis in general.

  • The Sports Primer: 1.26

    There's a group of kings and queens in Oldham County's pools.

    North Oldham High School's boys' and girls' swimming teams claimed those titles after taking the Oldham County Swimming championships Saturday. The meet featured only the three Oldham high schools.

    But the meet didn't go without a little bit of drama. One race ultiimately decided one of the champions.

  • OCHS' Late-game nerves win...

    BUCKNER – Oldham County High School girls’ basketball coach Stephen Mullins said he isn’t quite sure how the Lady Colonels held on.

    In a sloppy game on both sides, OCHS showed more sloppiness that visiting North Oldham. The Lady Colonels had 25 turnovers, to the Lady Mustangs’ 13, and gave their coach’s heart quite a ride.

    But by the narrowest of margins, OCHS held on for a 34-33 win Wednesday night, as time ran out after a layup by NOHS senior guard Meghan Welle.

    NOHS senior Taylor Sanders finished third in the 1-mile run in 4:31.77.

  • Skating in sync

    The temperature at Iceland Sports Complex in Lyndon is supposed to be in the low 20s but it's cold enough that it feels like the country.

    The 15 members of Louisville Skating Academy’s open juvenile synchronized skating team stand in three lines, their heads cocked down and to the left. As music from the movie “Beetlejuice” plays, they fluidly move as one to the song, "Jump In The Line."

    Each skater wears a matching smile in their identical black dresses with their hair swept into a bun.

  • State before state

    BUCKNER — Individual high school wrestlers might have their sights set on the state tournament next month in Lexington, but Oldham County High School will be going a few weeks sooner as a team.

    The Colonels are headed to the state duals tournament, following their 47-19 win over Eastern Saturday in the region five duals meet. Both teams, along with the top two teams from each region in the state will wrestle Jan. 28 at the state tournament at Henry Clay High School in Lexington.
