  • Rigdon back to captain Lady...

    As Oldham County charged to a second straight Region 8 title last year, one of its best players was stuck in the dugout.

    Kailey Rigdon, a junior first baseman garnering Division-I interest, dove back into third base during a game over the 2013 spring break. The momentum of her dive carried her body forward, but her arm stayed put, grabbing the base.

    A season-ending torn labrum in her shoulder was the result. The injury was especially frustrating, Rigdon said, because it affected her college plans.

    As many 3-year old colts are currently prepping for the first Saturday in May, I spend a lot of free time that I don’t have prepping for the most confounding two minutes in sports too.

    To avoid the paralysis by analysis from setting in, it’s fun sometimes to jump off the horses and just savor some of the other people, places and things that make Derby time so special.

    Accolades have continued to pour in for South Oldham grad and Transylvania baseball pitcher Braden Johnson.

    Johnson was named the National College Baseball Writer’s Association’s NCAA D-III National Player of the Week last week.

    Johnson, a freshman right-hander from Crestwood, earned the award by hurling a no-hitter March 30 in a 12-0 win against Defiance College.

    The no-hitter was the first in the modern era of Transy baseball, per the school’s athletic department.
