  • North boys, South girls win...

    From the beginning of the Class 2A Region 3 cross country championship race on Saturday, North Oldham senior Taylor Sanders had a certain mindset.

    Sanders made it through the first two miles in 10:23, breezing to a time of 16:10.15 to win the boys’ race at Shelby County High School. His next closest competitor was South Oldham junior runner-up Leonard Faul, who finished in 16:49.00.

    Thanks to Sanders’ run, the Mustangs took the boys’ team championship with 25 total points.

  • Scott County too much for Oldham

    GEORGETOWN --- As Oldham County entered its first playoff game against Scott County the Colonels didn’t think they would be in the situation they were in.

    Oldham started the game with their third string quarterback in, Dalton Thompson a sophomore, making his first start in the most important game of the season. They also didn’t expect their leading running back to be sidelined in the game due to misconduct.

  • South rally comes up short

    LAWRENCEBURG --- Anderson County broke a 26-all tie with 4:50 to play, then held on to defeat visiting South Oldham, 33-26 in the first round of the state Class 5A football playoffs Friday night.

    Bearcats senior running back Ethan Kelly burst through a gaping hole in the right side of the Dragons’ defense for a 4-yard touchdown run midway through the fourth quarter.

    The season comes to a close for South Oldham, who finishes 6-5.

  • North last Oldham standing

    GOSHEN --- It wasn’t pretty, but North Oldham coach Billy Martin said afterward that he’d take it.

    The Mustangs scored the game’s first 29 points en route to a 42-20 win over visiting Valley in the first round of the Class 4A state football playoffs on Friday.

    But North Oldham didn’t make it easy on itself.

  • Fryman rallies to win state

    Early on, North Oldham eighth grader Trenton Fryman trailed at the KTCCCA Meet of Champions on Saturday in Lexington. 

    It was an unfamiliar position, but Fryman stayed patient. Near the two-mile mark of the 4K race at Masterson Station Park, Fryman made his move. He jetted into the lead and held on to win the boys’ middle school state championship in 13:43.19.

  • Greenwood outlasts North in...

    LOUISVILLE --- Before the third game of the semi-final of the KHSAA State Volleyball Tournament, the music was fitting.

    The song, “Going the Distance,” from the movie, “Rocky” played over the sound system at Bellarmine’s Knights Hall. It certainly was a heavyweight battle and in the end, Greenwood had enough to outlast North Oldham 25-17, 27-29, 25-15.

  • No let up as North moves on at...

    LOUISVILLE --- There wasn’t a whole lot of let up this morning.

    In its first round win over Letcher County Central yesterday at the KHSAA State Volleyball Tournament, North Oldham wasn’t happy with the way it let the Lady Cougars hang around.

    In their 25-7, 25-13 win over Allen Central in the quarterfinals this morning, the Lady Mustangs gave up little or no momentum and are moving on to this afternoon’s semi-finals.

  • South finishes strong at Shelby...

    SHELBYVILLE — South Oldham got on top quickly and never looked back in its regular season finale at Shelby County.

    Dragons junior quarterback Jack Sherry connected with senior running back Steward Williams for a 72-yard touchdown pass early in the first quarter to take an early lead and South Oldham rolled to a 34-16 win.

    After Williams' touchdown run, the Dragons forced a three-and-out to get the offense back on the field. South Oldham junior running back Dallas Banks then ripped off a 48-yard touchdown run for the final score.

  • Colonels come up short in...

    BUCKNER — Oldham County had thrice had the lead in the game, but with 1:53 left in the game, the Colonels trailed visiting Jeffersontown by four.

    On fourth down and 10, backup senior quarterback Stephen Farrow avoided a sack at midfield, scrambled to his left and fighting off a tackle, somehow got a pass off to senior wide receiver Kerry Smith, 20-yards downfield.

    But the ball fell off Smith’s fingertips and the Chargers ran out the clock for a 40-36 win, Friday.

  • North gets past sluggish start...

    LOUISVILLE — For the first game of its KHSAA State Volleyball Tournament opener, North Oldham played the way it wanted to play and easily won.

    But in the second game, the Lady Mustangs got away from their gameplan, prompting coach Brian Jones to call a timeout, up 9-8 over Letcher County Central. North Oldham got past the Lady Cougars 2-0, but if it’s to advance further in the tournament at Bellarmine’s Knights Hall, there can’t be any letting off the throttle.
