  • Volleyball: Lady Colonel cousins

    Danielle McCarson and Kelsey Miller spent plenty of time together growing up but were never on the same volleyball team until Miller came to Oldham County High School three years ago.

    McCarson, a sophomore at the time, remembers it being weird at first that Miller, her first cousin, was now a teammate.

    “Then we started playing with each other,” McCarson said, “and it clicked so well.”

  • Boys golf: North duo ready for...

    Mason Lenhart and Josh Maier will head south this week for the second year in a row, only this time they’ll have a different objective on their minds.

    Last fall the duo went to the Leachman Buick-GMC-Cadillac/KHSAA State Tournament as part of North Oldham’s Region 6 runner-up team that was competing for a state title.

    The Mustangs didn’t qualify for this year’s state tournament but Lenhart, a sophomore, and Maier, a senior, will go to Bowling Green Country Club anyway as individual competitors.

  • Field hockey team finishes first...

    A new sports program in Oldham County recently finished its first season of play.

    The Oldham County Wicked Sticks field hockey team wrapped up its first season in a 12-team league last month.

    The team was founded on Aug. 1 by Ken Hodge, an Oldham resident who was looking for a field hockey team on which his daughter, Megan, could play.

    Megan is a student at Oldham County Middle School, which doesn’t currently have a team.

  • OCYFL Week 6 recap

    In another week of Oldham County Youth Football League (OCYFL) games, the coaches continued to fine-tune the offense and defense as the playoffs near.

    The junior division saw the Dolphins beat the Carroll County Yellow Jackets 8-0 in a defensive showdown.

    All of the scoring took place in the second quarter in the form of a Blake Wetzel 2-yard touchdown run and ensuing PAT kick. That gave the Dolphins an 8-0 victory.

    The Jaguars shut the Bucs out 28-0.
