  • OCHS’ Larsen sweeps...

    LOUISVILLE – David Larsen didn’t have a bad day this year.

    Larsen, an Oldham County High School senior, swept the hurdles titles at the regional meet to help the Colonels to a third place finish as a team.

    “I was hopeful I could get both,” Larsen said. “Last year I just had a bad day at the regionals. This year, I did more work coming in so that I could try my hardest and even if I did have a bad day I would still have a chance.”

    It’s definitely going to be different around Oldham County High School in October. For the first time in 21 years when basketball practice starts, Gary Forrest won’t be in the gym. When Forrest, who spent a year as an assistant under Bob Hoggard before taking the head coazching job, announced his retirement from coaching and teaching, it brought an end to an era of excellence in the OCHS program. Winning 415 games and five regional titles along with reaching the regional finals four more times will do that.
