  • Stephens: 'Cats fine-tuning...

    LEXINGTON – It's not even Thanksgiving and John Calipari's University of Kentucky basketball team is miles ahead of where most coaches could hope their teams will be at the end of a year.

    The Wildcats notched a solid-but-not perfect win over Texas-Arlington, 105-76, Tuesday night in Rupp Arena.

    They were out-rebounded 21-17 in the first half, weren't talking enough on defense and weren't executing well in half-court for much of the night.

  • Franklin ends South's...

    CRESTWOOD – Friday night's result between South Oldham and Franklin County wasn't reflective of the teams on the field, according to South coach Jamie Reed.

    “The better team didn't win tonight” Reed said. “That's for certain.'

    But it was a combination of Dragon errors and a monster performance by Franklin County's Chris Roberts that led to a 27-21 overtime Flyers win Friday at Dragon Stadium in the second round of the Class 5A playoffs.

  • North runs over Western to...

     LOUISVILLE ‑‑ All it took was one play for North Oldham to exert its dominance over fellow Class 4A school Western on the Warriors' home field Friday night.

    North running back Arien Beasley raced 60 yards for a touchdown on the very first play from scrimmage and the Mustangs (9-3) never looked back in a 49-6 rout of the Warriors (6-6).

    “We played really well, in all phases of the game,” North coach Billy Martin said. “It was a dominating performance I knew our guys were capable of.”

  • North Oldham girls finish third...

    LEXINGTON – Sophomore Erin Edmundson led the way with a seventh-place finish Saturday as North Oldham finished third in the Class 2A girls state cross-country meet.

       “Anytime the girls can get on the podium, I’m proud of them, obviously,” coach Christie Sykora said. “They’re a good group of girls and they run well together.”

       North’s team score of 176 trailed only state champion Highlands (76) and Christian Academy-Louisville (152).

  • Lady Colonels’ first loss comes...

    LEXINGTON – The most successful season in Oldham County girls soccer history finally came to a close Nov. 7.

       The loss, the first of the year for OC (23-1-1) ended the Lady Colonels’ season the deepest into the playoffs they’d ever advanced.
