  • South, Simpson on a roll

    Steve Simpson’s South Oldham program had to slowly work its way up toward being one of the area’s best.
    But 12 years of building has paid off the last two seasons in a big way.

    South won the Region 8 championship last week against Simon Kenton, the school’s second-straight and second-ever region title. The Dragons play Hopkinsville at noon Wednesday in the first round of the Whitaker Bank/KHSAA Boys Sweet 16 in Lexington's Rupp Arena.

    BUCKNER – Oldham County couldn't quite finish off DuPont Manual Saturday afternoon.

    The Colonels led most of the way but allowed the Crimsons a five-run seventh inning and fell at home, 7-3.

    Manual scored its five runs on an RBI hit by pitch, two-RBI single, RBI groundout and RBI single. Left-hander Branden Potts was saddled with all five runs.

    “Except for one inning, I thought today was great,” OC coach Scott Gerlach said. “But unfortunately that's baseball.

    GOSHEN – Oldham County was “shaking off the rust” in its season opener Friday, but the Lady Colonels still held on for a district victory.

    The Lady Colonels beat North Oldham 5-2 Friday night at North, moving their regular season and District 29 records to 1-0.

    “I think we had like four baserunning errors we could've scored more runs on,” coach Steve Leanhart said. “I guess it was the first game jitters and shaking off the rust the first game on the field, especially since we've been indoors the last few months.”

  • New Team, Dream Accomplished

    NEW CASTLE – South Oldham’s team motto all season has been “New Team, Same Dream.”

    South accomplished its dream of going back to the Boys Sweet 16, beating Simon Kenton 50-47 Tuesday at Henry County in overtime of the boys Region 8 title game.
