    Brown, 24, began training for the Aug. 29 Louisville Ironman competition last October.

  • Teams coping heat wave

    The recent heat wave is starting to play a role in how the local high school and middle school teams are preparing for their fall seasons.

    Across the county most teams have been able to conduct preseason practice, however, with temperatures expected to top 100 degrees later this week, postponements and cancellations are likely.

    “So far it’s been good,” Oldham County High School football coach Matt Brown said. “We have had no issues, knock on wood. It’s been hot, very hot, but we try to schedule things as early or as late as possible.”

    “It’s another pretty strong field,” OCHS coach Dan Schulz said. “We have some teams that will challenge for their regional titles.”
