  • Boys Basketball: Colonels take...

    BUCKNER – Oldham County’s fans got their first chance Friday to see the Region 8 favorite Colonels on their home court.

    OC showed those fans the balanced attack that caused coaches to vote the Colonels’ No. 1 in the region preseason poll.

    Senior guard Hayden Hawes scored 18 points and Jacob Bates and Brandon Johnson came off the bench to score 14 and 12, respectively, as OC cruised to a 75-58 win against Butler.

    The Colonels (2-0) used a 14-0 run to take a 20-9 lead early in the second quarter and never looked back.

  • Boys Basketball: Dragons fall...

    CRESTWOOD – South Oldham and its almost entirely new roster had a chance to make an early splash Thursday night against Region 8 contender Shelby County.

    But Matt Cantinna’s potential game-tying 3-pointer came off the rim at the buzzer and the Rockets held on for a 70-67 road win.

    The two-time defending region champion Dragons (0-1) lost every player that had meaningful varsity time last season except for junior guards Isaac Fields and Grant Williams.

  • Football: North well-represented...

    North Oldham had more than a dozen players selected to the all-Class 4-A, District 3 first and second teams following a 10-3 year.

    The Mustangs won the district title for the first time and advanced to the state semifinals, where they fell to Owensboro.

    The following players were selected:

    First team – Taylor Heckenberg (QB), Arien Beasley (RB and returner), Mike Marquez (TE), Ryan Jones (OT), Nicky Ingemi (OG), Collin Portman (DE), Cole Emery (OLB), Kevin Graham (LB), Matt Clark (DB)

  • Girls Basketball: Slow start...

    GOSHEN – North Oldham’s players are getting used to a new way of doing things, coach Dan Pfaff said.

    From different warmups to new offensive and defensive systems, the Lady Mustangs are trying to change their culture and climb out of the District 29 cellar.

    But combine first-game jitters with a hot-shooting opponent and North Oldham dug too deep a hole Wednesday night.

    North Bullitt raced out to a 30-4 lead early in the second quarter and went on to win 71-41 in the season opener for both teams.

    Three Oldham County football seniors were honored with Most Valuable Player awards at the team’s year-end banquet.

    Harding threw for 1,912 yards and 22 touchdowns and ran for 2 touchdowns for the Colonels (3-8), who were eliminated by Pleasure Ridge Park last month in the first round of the KHSAA Class 6-A Playoffs.

    LOUISVILLE – Oldham County faced its highest-ranked opponent of the season Tuesday night in just its second game.

    The Lady Colonels managed to keep things respectable against No. 6 DuPont Manual, but still fell 56-37 at L.J. “Butch” Charmoli Gymnasium.

    Tonysha Curry paced Manual (1-0) with 16 points and 13 rebounds. 6-foot-4 junior center Krys McCune, playing in front of recruiters from the Universities of Kansas and Tennessee, added 15 points.

    The Lady Crimsons forced 25 OC turnovers and out-rebounded the Lady Colonels (1-1) 48-26.
