North Oldham

  • Two-run bunt the big play as South sweeps North

    CRESTWOOD – In a series where runs have been hard to come by, South Oldham won by manufacturing a couple of them Thursday night.

    Drew Greenwood and Eddie Mathis scored the tying and go-ahead runs on a Will Moriarty sacrifice bunt in the sixth inning and South held on to beat North Oldham 3-2 at Bill Cofer Field.

    South (12-4, 4-0 District 29) needs to beat Oldham County in one of two games next week to clinch the regular season district title. North (8-7, 1-3) had its regular season title hopes dashed.

  • How county teams have fared vs. proposed district opponents

    Tuesday the KHSAA announced the proposed football alignments for the 2015-18 seasons.

    The changes reflected teams voluntarily “moving up” in class and those taking the opportunity to drop a level. The latter category includes Oldham County, which is slated to move from Class 6A to 5A starting in 2015.

    North Oldham’s proposed district, Class 4A, District 4, will also include Collins, Franklin County and Spencer County.

  • Proposed 2015-18 football district alignments announced

    Oldham County and South Oldham are one step closer to playing in the same football district starting in 2015.

    The KHSAA Board of Control approved a draft of the football alignment for the 2015-18 seasons Tuesday.

    The draft was configured after schools were given the option of "playing up" a class, or moving down a class if the opportunity was available. Oldham County made such a move, going from 6A to 5A.

    The 2015-18 alignment will be presented to the membership before likely being finalized during the Board's May meeting.

    Coming a little after halfway between the end of one football season and beginning of the next, North coach Billy Martin said spring practice is one of his favorite times of the year.
