  • The bench speaks

    NEW CASTLE - An early run sparked by an unlikely starter and an unlikely lineup gave the Oldham County Colonels the early push they needed to beat Henry County 62-43 in the opening round of the Henry County Invitational Tuesday.

    With senior center Matt Day scoring 12 of his 14 points in the first half and big contributions off the bench from Mike Gasser and Matt Hogue, they got out to a 15-2 lead in the game's first five minutes.

    "We did that with kind of an odd lineup," OCHS coach Gary Forrest said. "I thought Mike and Hogue came in and really gave us a spark there."

  • Chiba, Kollenberg head All-...

    CRESTWOOD - Oldham County's Ichiro Chiba and South Oldham's Brandon Kollenberg headed the list of local football players named to the all-district football team this year.

    The SOHS program also drew another honor when assistant coach David Watkins was voted the Greater Louisville Area Coaches Association assistant coach of the year by his peers.

    For Watkins, it is the second coaching honor in the past year.

    This spring he was a named the assistant baseball coach of the year by the baseball coaches association.

  • Oldham County wrestlers take...

    BUCKNER - With the right guys in the right spots the Oldham County wrestling team took first in the Moore Invitational Saturday.

    "We finally got all of our guys in the right spots," first-year OCHS coach Aaron Riordan said. "We beat some pretty good teams."

    The Colonels also finished third in the always strong Seneca Invitational this season.

    At Moore, OCHS, ranked No. 17 in the preseason by the coaches' association, beat Southern, PRP and a strong Lexington Henry Clay team 51-30.

  • Hanging in there

    NEW CASTLE - Things may have been going a bit easy for the South Oldham Dragons.

    Coasting along with a 10-point lead with just over two minutes to play, the Dragons almost let Lexington Sayre come back before regrouping to win 66-60 in the opening round of the Henry County Invitational Tuesday.

    "We made it a little too interesting," SOHS coach Steve Simpson said. "We can't put two good halves together right now."

    SOHS led by as many as 18 points before Sayre fought its way back into the game behind the red hot shooting of forward Quinn Schwartz.

  • A late winner

    BUCKNER - Late or not, Eric Dunlap's tip-in of his own missed shot at the buzzer was the game-winner Tuesday as the Oldham County Colonels beat Nelson County 62-60.

    "It might have been late, but a win is a win," Dunlap said. "It bounced right back at me. I was trying to get fouled and when I missed I knew I had to attack the basket and get a hand on it."

    The tip-in left Nelson County stunned after the Cardinals led through much of the game only to fall behind to a furious OCHS comeback in the final four minutes.

  • Oldham County taking on tough...

    BUCKNER - The Oldham County Ronald McDonald Classic will showcase four local teams this year at Oldham County High School Saturday.

    The event, which raises money for the Ronald McDonald House in downtown Louisville, raised almost $3,000 last year and has raised more than $12,000 for the house in the last six years.

    "It goes for such a great cause, we always enjoy doing it," OCHS coach Gary Forrest said. "Plus, it's a chance to come and see some pretty good games."
