  • NOHS softball hires Chomicki

    Stephanie Chomicki has been added as an assistant on coach Erick Anderson’s North Oldham softball staff.

    Chomicki was the head softball coach at Blue Valley High School in Overland Park, Kan., from 2010-14. 

    In her first year as the head coach, she led her team to a second place finish at state, and was voted the Kansas 5A Coach of the Year. 

    Chomicki played Division I softball at Tulsa from 2005-2009. 

  • In-state schools focusing on area football talent

     

    Arien Beasley is a standout running back who’ll have some options as to where he plays in college.

    Beasley, a North Oldham senior, is being recruited by a wide variety of schools across several levels and conferences. But some of his best options may be within the state, where he’s been in constant contact with coaches from the Universities of Kentucky and Louisville.

    “It would mean the absolute world to me to play for Louisville or UK,” Beasley, who scored 27 touchdowns in 13 games last year for the Mustangs, said.

  • Fall Sports Preview -- Boys Cross County

     

    Experience levels at cross-country programs are varied across the county.

    South Oldham returns its top six runners from the 3A state meet last year, where it finished sixth.

    North Oldham returns its top two finishers from last fall’s 2A state championship team. But the Mustangs have to fill several other spots.

    And Oldham County loses its top five runners from the 3A state meet and will have to find new runners to fill those shoes.

  • KHSAA emphasizing softball safety

    The KHSAA is recommending softball players at certain positions take further steps to protect themselves from injury.

    Earlier this month the KHSAA Board of Control passed a proposal recommending the use of protective headgear for softball pitchers, first basemen and third basemen.

    The proposal did not apply to baseball.

    The Board made its recommendation after studying national injury data and after consulting the state’s sports medicine advisory committee, per a KHSAA press release.

  • High school season set to begin

    Summer break is quickly coming to an end and the 2014-15 high school sports season is ready to begin.

    Look for fall sports team previews over the next few weeks in the Oldham Era.

  • Baseball: NO’s Millem pledges to Butler

    With rule changes made to college baseball in recent years, there’s become more of an emphasis on speed, defense and top-of-the-order hitting.

    Those changes fit right into Roman Millem’s game.

    Millem, a North Oldham rising senior shortstop, committed June 20 to play baseball at Butler University in Indianapolis. Bulldog coaches had offered Millem a scholarship in January, he said, and he decided last month to accept it.

  • Maier wins at Iroquois

    North Oldham golfer Josh Maier fired a 2-under 69 to win the boys championship division of the MDGT Junior Golf Tour event Friday at Iroquois Golf Course in Louisville.

    The Goshen native finished two shots clear of second-place Kyle Saffran of Louisville.

    La Grange’s Jacob Marcum was sixth with a 9-over 80.

    Prospect’s Crosby Cameron tied for ninth, shooting a 12-over 83.

    Also at Iroquois, Pewee Valley’s Phil Nelson won the 17-18 boys division with a 9-over 80.

  • North Oldham Female Athlete of the Year

    Grace Oglesby topped the record of an Olympic legend, then topped that twice more to win a state title.

    The North Oldham sophomore swam the 100 butterfly in 54.66 seconds Feb. 15 in the Region 2 championships, beating a 32-year-old region record set by 1984 Olympic gold medalist Mary T. Meagher.

    Oglesby shattered that time Feb. 28 in the state preliminaries,  swimming the 100 fly in 53.67 seconds.

    One day later she swam the 100 fly in a blistering 53.45 seconds to set a new state record and claim a championship.
