  • Football teams facing district...

    LEXINGTON – The football districts for all three high school programs in the county could see a drastic change next season.

    Under a realignment proposal by the Kentucky High School Athletic Association, all three schools will change districts and two will move up a class.

    The KHSAA Board of Control is scheduled to vote on approval or amend it Oct. 18.

    The move comes from a geographical and enrollment need for change.

  • OCHS runs past South

    BUCKNER – For the Oldham County Colonels it was all about making a statement after beating arch rival and district foe South Oldham 40-19 Friday.

    “We wanted everyone to know we’re still Oldham County,” senior tailback Brett Leary said. “This was one of our games to prove we are still the best team in the district.”

    Leary and fellow senior Tyler Oldham fueled a powerful rushing attack that amassed 335 yards against the Dragons and allowed the Colonels to control the clock and answer with a big play every time SOHS challenged them.

  • OCHS going pink for Homecoming

    BUCKNER – Under normal circumstances, most high school football players would be embarrassed to  wear pink.

    On Oct. 15, however, the Oldham County High School football team will don pink jerseys for a cause.

    On the night the Colonels host district foe Grant County for their homecoming, they will also host the first “Color the Colonels Pink” evening in honor of the Susan G. Komen Foundation’s efforts to fight breast cancer.

    The Colonels will wear pink jerseys along with plenty of other special events for the game.

  • Mustangs edge Ft. Knox in double...

    FORT KNOX – On a night when they had to have a big play, the North Oldham Mustangs were able to come up with just what they needed to beat Ft. Knox 35-28 in double overtime.

    “We found a way to win, even though we didn’t play that great,” NOHS coach Billy Martin said. “We were able to dig down a couple of different times and come back and win.”

  • Dragons moved into contention...

    CRESTWOOD – A new team has moved into the race for the district football champs.

    With a 40-39 double overtime win over Jeffersontown Friday, the South Oldham High School Dragons pushed themselves right into title         contention.

    “Everytime we win it’s a big game, but the last few games have really been that way,” SOHS coach Jamie Reed said. “J-town has been a thorn in our sides the past few years and have thought they have better talent. This was just an awesome win for our program.”

  • Defense leads Dragons past...

    CRESTWOOD – The South Oldham Dragons’ defense was pushed Friday, but never snapped.

    What did snap for the Dragons was a three-year losing streak to cross county rival North Oldham as SOHS rolled to a 29-7 win thanks in large part to their defensive play.

    “We’ve been hearing about it for three years now, about how we weren’t good enough to beat North,” SOHS senior defensive tackle Brandon Bramer said. “That’s not the way it is this year.”

  • Traughber wins coach of year

    CRESTWOOD – It’s not winning or losing that attracts Charlie Traughber to coaching – it’s teaching.

    “Seeing kids learn a technique, learn what you are trying to teach them to me is what it’s all about,” Traughber said. “That’s very rewarding.”

    Traughber, a Crestwood resident, has been selected as the 2010 Kentucky Youth Soccer Association Recreation Girls’ Coach of the Year.

  • SOHS soccer opens undefeated

Vitalis scored 40 goals for SOHS last season.

This month, he made a name for himself as a writer winning the U.S. Tennis Association Arthur Ashe Essay Contest and a free trip to the U.S. Open in New York.

  • Injuries cost Mustangs in J-town...

    GOSHEN – On a night when nothing went right, the North Oldham Mustangs fell to Jeffersontown 26-7 and may have lost two of their top offensive weapons.
