Today's Sports

  • From the heart

    The members of Oldham County’s girls’ basketball team sat dejected in their locker room following their 59-31 loss to Martha Layne Collins.

    Coach Stephen Mullins and Assistant Coach Jeff Walton spoke to the team after the game, but Walton didn’t offer the typical pick-me-up.

    Matching each other move for move is what it's all about for this group of girls.

    The synchronized skating teams at the Louisville Skating Academy don't get a ton of time to practice at Iceland Sports Complex in Lyndon. But they make the most of the time they get on the ice, using one of the five elements required during their brief routine.

    Of the over 250 members in LSA, 30 are from Oldham County, including five on the open juvenile and preliminary synchronized teams.

  • Throwing towards college

    The same passes that South Oldham High School junior quarterback Jack Sherry has fired repeatedly at Dragon Stadium didn’t have the same results among some of the nation’s best football players.

    Sherry competed in the inaugural Proving Ground National Combine on Jan. 2 at Chase Field in Phoenix.

    Sherry, the only Kentucky football player selected, participated in a series of drills and workouts for 300 high school juniors from around the country.

  • 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.

  • Grand Stamm—LIVE! 1.13

    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.

    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.
