  • North Oldham Team of the Year

    Two groups of North Oldham runners claimed state titles in 2013-14.

    North’s boys cross country team won its fourth straight championship, scoring a Class 2A-best 53 points on a windy morning Nov. 9 at the Kentucky Horse Park in Lexington.

    The Mustangs used a consistent approach to beat second-place Covington Catholic by 16 points.

    Sophomore Trenton Fryman led the way for North that day, finishing eighth in the class with a time of 16:59.63.

    Next was freshman Alex McClarty at No. 12 (17:05.41).

  • Boys basketball: Mustangs...

    LOUISVILLE – Rob Burton had two choices when he was named North Oldham’s boys basketball coach just weeks before the start of summer ball.

    He could spend June staging practices for the team in order to introduce his offensive and defensive systems in a controlled setting. His other option was to schedule a full slate of games and let his Mustangs learn while competing in exhibitions against area teams.

  • Athletes win Special Olympic...

    Two Oldham County athletes excelled at the 2014 Special Olympics USA Games in Mercer County, N.J., last week.

    Goshen’s Jesse Pennington struck gold in the team bocce event, winning alongside teammate Michael Willard.

    Pennington and Willard beat Maryland 12-7 in the opening match before beating Pennsylvania 13-5 to claim gold.

    Then Prospect’s Tee Salinas and his father, Tony, took silver in the golf competition.

  • Gators host ‘pirate meet’

    Swimmers from the ages of 3 to 18 hit the Glen Oaks Country Club pool Monday night in Prospect in the club’s “pirate meet” against Douglass Hills.

    There were pirate decorations hanging around the pool, with some swimmers sporting drawn-on pirate mustaches.

    Glen Oaks won the meet, scoring -782 to -719.

  • Stephens: Five drivers who could...

    NASCAR did Kentucky Speedway a favor when it announced its new points system during the last offseason.

    The sport’s governing body altered the Chase for the Sprint Cup format for 2014, putting in place a system that pretty much guarantees the winner of any of the first 26 races one of 16 spots in the playoff-like final 10 races. The remaining slots not filled by race winners are filled in order of the point standings.

  • Haas hired to coach North boys...

    North Oldham introduced David Haas as head boys lacrosse coach Monday night.

    Haas takes over for Ryan Smith, who left for the same job at Kentucky Country Day.

    Haas was most recently an assistant at St. Charles Prep in Columbus, Ohio, from 2011-12. Before that he was an assistant at KCD, helping the Bearcats to the state semifinals in both seasons with the program.

  • Strengthening government...

    By Alison Lundergan Grimes, candidate for U.S. Senate

    Our military heroes make the ultimate sacrifice to preserve our freedom and we owe so much to every veteran who has worn our nation’s uniform.

    Like all Kentuckians, I am horrified by reports of deadly neglect of patients at hospitals operated by the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs. Although a full investigation is still in progress, it is apparent that at least several dozen former service personnel died while awaiting treatment at VA facilities.

    This situation is intolerable.
