  • North junior teaches CPR class

    North Oldham High School junior Trenton Fryman has a message for his fellow classmates: any CPR is better than no CPR. Twenty-five students showed up to learn Hands-Only CPR before school.

    Hands-only CPR is a two-step technique that involves calling 9-1-1 and pushing hard and fast in the center of the chest until help arrives. This simplified method of CPR requires no mouth-to-mouth breathing and does not require certification. It can also be taught in the health class curriculum with little or no cost.

  • Boys Basketball: Hagan hits game-winner to beat North Bullitt

    GOSHEN – North Oldham junior Seth Hagan is known more for his rebounding and defense than his scoring.

    But his coach, Rob Burton, has been telling Hagan he’d get his chance to hit a big shot.

    “I actually talked to Seth earlier in the week,” Burton said, “and I said, ‘Be ready, because you’re going to have some moments here.’”

    One such moment came Tuesday night against North Bullitt.
