  • Oldham County prepares for 3A...

     A day after watching both North and South Oldham take on the best Kentucky has to offer in the 2A state track and field meet, the Oldham County Colonels will get their chance today, heading to Owsley Frazier Cardinal Park for their own shot at state glory in 3A meet.

  • Track and field 2A state meet...

    Friday would prove to be a good day for Oldham County in the 2A state track and field meet as two local standouts captured state titles and both North and South Oldham performed well under the summer sun. On one side, the North Oldham guys finished second overall in the meet with a score of 48 points, while the girls took the No. 5 spot at 39.70 and Brianna Brown captured the girls' long jump title. On the other side, South Oldham picked up some hardware with a Leonard Faul title in the 800 meter run as the guys would finish in the No. 15 spot, while the girls would grab ninth.

  • After day one, only one local...

    While the track and field teams take to Owsley Frazier Cardinal Park today at the 2A state track meet, the tennis state tournament will be easing into day two at the University of Kentucky with only one local player, Jordan Pitts, left in the mix.

  • Local teams will look for strong...

    When the 2A state track meet kicks off today at Owsley Frazier Cardinal Park, the University of Louisville will have plenty of local flavor as both North and South Oldham will be looking to make a dent on the field.

  • Just a bit outside: The short...

    Sometimes saying hello can be just as hard as saying goodbye. Other times though, it can be harder. A couple of wasted hours and plenty of discarded paragraphs later, I can certainly testify to that. Still, for all the things that won’t seem to fit into words, one that will is how excited I am to be here.

  • Runners gather for Dream Mile...

    The elite Dream Mile event brought together the state’s top runners May 4 at St. Xavier in Louisville.
    The Dream Mile features just two races, the mile for both men and women. Students must meet qualifying standards to participate.
    Standards are 4:25 in the 1600-meter run or 4:27 in the mile for men; 5:20 in the 1600-meter run or 5:22 in the mile for women.
    The race is designed to produce fast times, with a competitive field, quality track and even a pacer for the first two laps.

  • North Oldham boys's...

    Two months ago, North Oldham lacrosse coach Ryan Smith knew his team had enough talent to bring home a state championship. Now, 14 wins later, they’ll get the chance to prove him right, taking to Trinity High School Friday night for a 6 p.m. title tilt with Tates Creek. After a 15-2 loss to the Commodores on March 24, the Mustangs will have a shot at some redemption to look forward as well.

  • Grand Stamm— The Grand Finale

    I’d been the sports editor at The Oldham Era for all of two days and I already had a sinking feeling.

    What had I gotten into?

    That feeling would subside eventually, giving way to a journey at The Era that’s included an incident with soccer officials, bussing over 20 hours to Pennsylvania for the Little League World Series and spending a day in the luxury suites at Keeneland race course in Lexington. Now, I’m writing my final Grand Stamm column.
