  • OCHS adds girls lacrosse

    After getting funding support from the Board of Education Monday, Oldham County will join North Oldham and South Oldham as county schools offering girls lacrosse.

    The sport, currently at the club level, is quickly growing both in county and regionally, OC athletic director Kevin Combs told the board.

    According to Combs, 35 girls have indicated on a survey they were interested in playing the sport for OC, which once fielded a team with students from all three high schools.

  • South swim selects Scarth

    After swimming competitively for much of his life, Spencer Scarth said he was looking to give back to the sport as a head coach.

    South Oldham has given the 22-year-old that chance, naming Scarth as its swim coach.

    The Redding, Conn., native recently graduated from St. Olaf College in Minnesota, where he was a member of the swim team.

    “I was kind of looking for jobs in the area,” said Scarth, a graduate student at Louisville. “…I went on interviews with a couple of them and South Oldham seemed like the best fit.”

  • Volleyball: North beats South, sets up OC showdown

    GOSHEN – In order to set up a winner-take-all district match next week against Oldham County, North Oldham needed to take care of business at home Tuesday against South Oldham.

    The No. 14 Lady Mustangs did just that, sweeping the Lady Dragons 3-0 (25-17, 25-7, 25-21).

    North and No. 5 OC are now both 2-0 against South and Trimble County, meaning the winner of their matchup Tuesday in Buckner will claim the No. 1 seed for next month’s District 29 tournament.

  • Girls soccer: North falls to Manual in final district tune-up

    GOSHEN – North Oldham gave a top 10 team a tense match for nearly 70 minutes Monday in its final game before playing its two county rivals.

    The Lady Mustangs, ranked No. 40 in the latest Maher Rankings, trailed No. 9 DuPont Manual 2-1 with just under 12 minutes to play before three Lady Crimsons goals in two minutes made the final margin 5-1.

  • Football notes: Beasley’s big plays break South

    CRESTWOOD – Arien Beasley has made a name for himself with his big-play ability.

    After all, the speedy senior wingback went into Friday night averaging 133.7 rushing yards and 2.7 rushing touchdowns on just 8.3 carries in North Oldham’s first three games.

    Then against South Oldham Friday he broke some more big plays, none bigger than a 48-yard fourth-quarter sprint to the end zone that gave North a 21-7 lead on its way to a 28-14 win in Dragon Stadium.

  • Football: North holds off South, keeps county title

    CRESTWOOD – North Oldham put together a dominating performance Friday to keep the county crown for another year.

    The Mustangs ran for more than 300 yards. They converted three of four fourth-down conversions. They became the first team all season to slow down South Oldham’s rushing offense. They didn’t give up big plays in the passing game.

    Add it all up and North beat South 28-14 Friday night at Dragon Stadium, claiming the three-team county championship for the second year in a row.

  • Football: Oldham wins first home game in two years

    BUCKNER – For the uninitiated, Friday night probably sounded more like Sunday morning to anyone passing by Oldham County’s Bell Field.

    A loud, repeating clang was heard for 15 minutes, much like church bells calling parishioners to worship. But instead of a call to hymns, it was a victorious melody for the OC football team, celebrating its first home victory in two years.

    Each clang of the victory bell was a reminder that the Colonels were back on the winning side of things after a 55-54 victory over North Bullitt.

  • Boys golf: Mustangs run table Thursday, win third straight Oldham Cup

    PROSPECT – North Oldham had a steep task in topping its 2013 Oldham Cup performance when it hit the course to defend the title last week.

    One year ago the Mustangs won the three-day, three-team title against Oldham County and South Oldham by scoring seven-and-a-half points out of a possible eight on the final day, a competition record.

    North beat its own feat on Sept. 18 at Nevel Meade Golf Course, winning all eight of its matches to secure the Cup for the seventh time. North totaled 14 points overall, with OC claiming eight and South two.

  • Girls soccer: Rowland nets hat trick, South cruises past Anderson

    CRESTWOOD – Stephanie Rowland scored three goals Wednesday night and made each one look easier than the last.

    The senior forward got a hat trick on her Senior Night and her teammates added two more goals as the Lady Dragons notched an uneventful 5-0 win against Anderson County.

    No. 8 South (10-2) has scored five goals in each of its last two games (including a 5-1 win at Nelson County Monday night) after losing 8-4 at No. 3 West Jessamine on Saturday – a loss that broke an eight-match winning streak.

  • Football: County title up for grabs Friday

    Defensive discipline will likely determine who leaves Dragon Stadium with the county football championship Friday night.

    Class 4A No. 9 North Oldham (2-1) and Class 5A No. 6 South Oldham (3-0) will renew their annual rivalry at 7:30 p.m. Friday in Crestwood.

    Both teams are 1-0 in county games this season as each beat Oldham County by scores of 42-7 – North on Aug. 29 in Goshen and South last week in Buckner.
