  • Football: Oldham wins first home...

    BUCKNER – For the uninitiated, Friday night probably sounded more like Sunday morning to anyone passing by Oldham County’s Bell Field.

    A loud, repeating clang was heard for 15 minutes, much like church bells calling parishioners to worship. But instead of a call to hymns, it was a victorious melody for the OC football team, celebrating its first home victory in two years.

    Each clang of the victory bell was a reminder that the Colonels were back on the winning side of things after a 55-54 victory over North Bullitt.

  • Boys golf: Mustangs run table...

    PROSPECT – North Oldham had a steep task in topping its 2013 Oldham Cup performance when it hit the course to defend the title last week.

    One year ago the Mustangs won the three-day, three-team title against Oldham County and South Oldham by scoring seven-and-a-half points out of a possible eight on the final day, a competition record.

    North beat its own feat on Sept. 18 at Nevel Meade Golf Course, winning all eight of its matches to secure the Cup for the seventh time. North totaled 14 points overall, with OC claiming eight and South two.

    No. 8 South (10-2) has scored five goals in each of its last two games (including a 5-1 win at Nelson County Monday night) after losing 8-4 at No. 3 West Jessamine on Saturday – a loss that broke an eight-match winning streak.

  • The Matchup: Arien Beasley

    Arien Beasley was a middle schooler when he realized basketball might not be the best sport for his style.

    “I got to my seventh and eighth grade year and I started running people over all the time,” Beasley said. “…My family and coaches just realized that maybe I should start playing football.”

    Football has worked out just fine.
