  • Softball: New approach has Lady...

    CRESTWOOD – Taylor Sheller has a habit of drawing plenty of walks via getting hit by pitches.

    She drew a walk by that method in her first at bat in last Friday’s game at South Oldham. In her second appearance, she decided to be aggressive.

    “I get hit a ridiculous amount of times,” Sheller said. “Then I was like, ‘first pitch, I’m going to take it.’”

  • Girls Lacrosse: North Oldham...

    North Oldham overcame an early deficit and dominated the second half in a 13-10 victory at South Oldham Thursday.

    Led by five goals from Catie Berkemeier in the second half, North Oldham (6-4) controlled the last 25 minutes of the game to move to 1-0 in district play.

    It was the sixth straight win for North Oldham after starting the season 0-4. The Lady Mustangs are riding a wave of momentum after going 5-0 last week to win the red division of the Braveheart Tournament at Sacred Heart Academy.

    As far back as I can remember, there’s always been something magical about a horse to me. I grew up taking care of them.

    I grew up watching Roy Rogers and Trigger. I marveled at how the Lone Ranger expertly handled his gallant steed Silver.

    Coming off the best season in school history where the Dragons won a record 10 games and reached the KHSAA Class 5-A state quarterfinals, the Dragons replace 14 seniors with plenty of youth looking to fill that void.
