  • Cross Country: Dragon...

    CENTERFIELD – Powered by a one-two finish from sisters Claire and Margaret Grogan the Oldham County High School girls’ cross country team won the South Oldham Dragon Invitational Saturday.

    The Lady Colonels’ 35 points edged SOHS with 41. SOHS was led by Grace Whitworth in third and Jessie Murner in fifth. North Oldham’s Caitlin Beyea was fourth to lead the Lady Mustangs to third place.

  • Mustangs strike early to beat...

    GOSHEN – It took the North Oldham Mustangs about 12 seconds Friday to show they were ready to rebound from a district loss to Henry County as the Mustangs rolled over Spencer County 28-0.

    NOHS’ Zach Evans celebrated his return from a foot injury by returning the opening kickoff 85 yards for a touchdown setting the stage for a dominating performance by the Mustangs. It was a repeat of last year’s game with Spencer when NOHS’ Andrew Tuller returned a kickoff for a score to give NOHS a hard fought win.

  • Tally sheet

    PEE WEE TACKLE

    RAIDERS 12, FALCONS 6 - The Raiders got all their points in the second quarter when Grant Beavin scored on a 36-yard run and Brendan McAfee scored on an 80-yard run.

    Trent Robinson brought the Falcons closer with a six-yard scoring run in the third quarter.

    PACKERS 21, CHIEFS 6 - Matt Duvall put the Packers up early with a short scoring dive before Keiya Sheron tied it for the Chiefs with a 50-yard touchdown run.

  • Not just a passing fad

    CRESTWOOD – The last thing anyone expected Chase Hamby to do was throw the ball, including Chase Hamby.

    Throw he did, however, as Hamby’s first pass was a 20-yard touchdown strike to Kiley Obradovich on the first possession of the game.

    “I’ll take it,” Hamby said. “It was good for my confidence for sure. Kiley made a great play on the ball and it got us going.”

  • Harmony wins tune-up meet

    CENTERFIELD – The Harmony Elementary girls’ cross country team continued their climb Oct. 1 when they took first place in the South Oldham Middle School state tune-up meet.

    Rachel Gibson of Locust Grove won the individual title.

  • OC volleyball wants a step...

    BUCKNER – The memory of last year’s regional final loss has been a driving force for the Oldham County High School volleyball team.

    After rolling to the district crown, the Lady Colonels fell in a hard fought, emotional regional championship game to cross county rival North Oldham leaving them short of an anticipated first trip to the state tournament.

    “It has been on their minds, obviously North is a big rival,” OCHS coach Callaway Logan said. “It’s a big goal of ours to get past that regional and move on to state.”
