  • Injury Advantage

    BUCKNER — A slight misstep on another player’s foot is all it took.

                Until North Oldham boys’ basketball senior center Devon Rowan came down on another player’s foot with 2:05 remaining in the second quarter, the Mustangs had control of the game at Oldham County and led 21-18.

                Rowan returned from the play, in which he sprained his left ankle, but NOHS never looked the same again.

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

    I hope you all enjoyed last week's chat, with Sean Ramey, master instructor at Kentucky Tae Kwon Do. As I've been told before, I guess I really showed by newness to Oldham County by not knowing that Ramey took part in The Bachelorette. But I had a blast!

  • Top basketball seed in sight

    The South Oldham High School girls’ and boys’ basketball teams can claim superiority over rival Oldham County High School following wins Friday.

    But more importantly, the path to the 29th district tournament is now shorter for the victors.

    The Dragons and Lady Dragons outplayed their counterparts Friday at SOHS, with the reward a pair of wins that bring them closer to the top seeds in their districts.

  • The Sports Primer: 1.10

    At this time four years ago, Oldham County High School girls' basketball assistant coach Jeff Walton hadn't recovered after being the victim of a roadside bomb as a member of the U.S. National Guard in Iraq.

    Walton completed boot camp with the U.S. Marine Corps during the Persian Gulf War, but the war ended days after the completion. So Walton enlisted in the National Guard and served tours of duty in Iraq in 2003 and 2007. The latter left him wounded after the bomb, in which he earned the Purple Heart medal.

  • Home tournament advantage

    Though Oldham County High School boys’ basketball coach Jason Holland had coached a game the night before and just finished coaching his team through a morning practice, he had one more thing to do before he could prepare for another game that night: laundry.

    Not his own laundry, but laundry from the Pendleton County boys’ basketball team.

  • Fiery Dragons hang on over...

    CRESTWOOD – Though South Oldham’s boys’ basketball team took an 11-point lead, its largest of the night, at the beginning of the fourth quarter, Oldham County still had some gas left in its tank.

    With 25 seconds left, the Colonels cut the lead to four. They also got a break when Dragons junior guard Mitch Cantina missed a one-and-one free throw.

    But SOHS held together. The Dragons forced a turnover and an errant shot by OCHS on the game’s final possession and held on for a 50-45 win.

  • Lady Dragons Overwhelm Oldham

    CRESTWOOD — With the final seconds of the first half winding down against Oldham County Friday night, South Oldham senior guard Jasmine Whitfield took a pass on the right wing, cross-over dribbled from behind the arc, squared up and nailed a three-pointer.

    Whitfield kept her right shooting hand held high in a pose as she turned and skipped off the court towards the locker room to the celebration of her teammates.

    Not that the Lady Dragons needed the shot.

    I sleep in as late as I can and get here right before sign up ends. I’ll get on the course, maybe do one practice lap and get on the course and race. I’m a procrastinator. So I guess that’s my key to success.
