  • Tally sheet

     

    Following is an account of action from the North Oldham Little League from the past week as received by The Oldham Era:

     

  • Moving on and up

    BUCKNER – After a year on the job, Oldham County High School Lady Colonels’ basketball coach Larry Just is moving on.

    Just, who came to OCHS last season, has resigned and accepted a job at Butler Traditional High School in Louisville.

    “I think it’s the right move for me and for my family,” Just said. “As far as location, we live in Louisville and Butler is 10 or 12 minutes away opposed to Oldham County which is 25 minutes away and this is one thing that will certainly give me more time with my family.”

  • Javanon returning to national...

    LOUISVILLE – For the second straight year the Javanon 92 boys’ soccer team is headed to the national championship tourney.

    For the second straight year, three local players, John Cantrell, Will Vitalis and Cullen Hall are members of the team.

    Javanon beat the Chicago Fire 2-1 in a shootout to win the regional crown in Sioux Falls, S.D. and advance to the nationals July 26 in Boston.
