North Oldham

  • 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.

  • Field hockey: North wins in strokes

    CRESTWOOD – North Oldham and South Oldham needed an extra 10 minutes to decide their field hockey match Monday night in the mist at Dragon Stadium.

    When the 10-minute overtime wasn’t enough to break a 2-2 deadlock, the teams went into penalty strokes.

    Lady Mustangs Charlie McCauley and Madison Cobb converted their strokes and goalie Sarah Foye didn’t allow a Lady Dragon to score, giving North a 2-0 advantage and a 3-2 win over its county rival.

  • Boys cross-country: Fryman wins Rumble at home course

    GOSHEN – Trenton Fryman had come close to winning his home meet twice before.

    The North Oldham junior finished third in the 2012 Rumble Through the Jungle and came in second one year ago.

    Fryman broke through Saturday, winning the boys 5K at the Rumble, an annual meet North hosts at Creasey Mahan Nature Preserve.

    Fryman passed Madison Central’s Brennan Fields on the final of three laps to finish first with a time of 16:08.33. Fields (16:11.47) was second, followed by third-place Tanner Dowdy of South Oldham (16:26.40).

  • Girls cross-country: OC second in Rumble

    GOSHEN – Oldham County used a consistent approach to get a runner-up finish Saturday.

    The Lady Colonels placed five runners between positions 18-33 and came in second only to DuPont Manual in the team competition of the Rumble Through the Jungle on Saturday morning at Creasey Mahan Nature Preserve.

    Junior Sammy Griffin led OC with an 18th place finish, running the three laps in 20:36.53.

    “I’m always so proud of the team,” Griffin said. “…I think everybody did well.”

  • The Matchup: Arien Beasley

    Arien Beasley was a middle schooler when he realized basketball might not be the best sport for his style.

    “I got to my seventh and eighth grade year and I started running people over all the time,” Beasley said. “…My family and coaches just realized that maybe I should start playing football.”

    Football has worked out just fine.

  • Boys golf: North out to defend Oldham Cup

    The county’s most prized boys golf trophy will be up for grabs next week.

    The Oldham Cup competition will begin at 4:30 Tuesday afternoon at Oldham County Country Club.

    Play will continue over the next two days at Harmony Landing and Nevel Meade.

    Coach Larry Dunn’s North Oldham team beat Oldham County and South Oldham for the title last fall.

    North out-paced both OC and South in the Oldham County Classic in August, finishing second only to St. Xavier.
     

  • Football: Mustangs, minus Heckenberg, play at North Bullitt

    The momentum North Oldham gained by beating OC 42-7 in its opener came to a halt last week when quarterback Taylor Heckenberg separated his throwing shoulder in a 24-21 loss at Class 2A No. 4 Christian Academy-Louisville.

    With Heckenberg out for at least a couple of weeks, sophomore Bryce Webb and/or junior T.C. Falkner will handle quarterback duties at 7:30 Friday night at North Bullitt (1-1).

    “(The difference is) experience more than anything,” Mustangs coach Billy Martin said. “They can run our offense.”

  • Boys soccer: Colonels take first county match

    BUCKNER – Oldham County’s Shane Davis hadn’t scored a varsity goal going into the Colonels’ home match with North Oldham Tuesday.

    The OC freshman picked couldn’t have picked a better time for his first, scoring the go-ahead goal in a 3-2 Colonel win.

    No. 20 OC (5-1-1) is now 1-0 in District 29 play and will clinch the No. 1 district seed if it beats South Oldham Sept. 16 in Crestwood.

    “There’s no better feeling right now,” senior OC goalkeeper Adam Curry said.

  • Football: Mustangs drop close loss at CAL

    Arien Beasley ran for touchdowns of 62 and 80 yards but Christian Academy-Louisville made the plays at the end to beat North Oldham 24-21 Friday in Louisville.

    Mustang quarterback Taylor Heckenberg left the game early with a separated right shoulder and will miss at least the next two weeks, coach Billy Martin said.

    North (1-1) tallied 214 rushing yards but got just 12 yards through the air. The Class 2A No. 4 Centurions (3-0) out-gained the Mustangs 234-226.

    “It was just a defensive battle, both teams,” Martin said.

  • Football: Mustangs take on rival Centurions

    North Oldham had its way with Oldham County last week, but the Mustangs face a tougher test against another rival Friday at Christian Academy-Louisville.

    CAL beat North 19-0 last year and leads the all-time series 5-3. However the teams have split the last six meetings.

    The Mustangs won 17-14 on Aug. 31, 2012, the last time the game was played in Louisville.
