  • 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.”

  • 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.”
