North Oldham

  • North fires Stobaugh

    North Oldham will have its fourth different boys basketball coach in six years on the Mustang sidelines next fall.

    North fired coach Chris Stobaugh after two years Friday, one day after the Mustangs’ 2013-14 season ended with a district tournament loss to Oldham County.

    Athletic director Alan Yanke said off-court issues rather than on-court performance were the reason for the change.

  • Oglesby wins state 100 fly title

    LOUISVILLE – Grace Oglesby said she was “kind of nervous” before the state swimming finals Saturday at the University of Louisville’s Ralph Wright Natatorium.

  • Oldham hits North with second half knockout

    GOSHEN – Oldham County didn't have all its pieces available Thursday night, but it still got the job done.

    Guards Hayden Hawes and Jordan Gates scored 18 and 17 points each and the Colonels advanced in the district tournament with a 66-48 over North Oldham on the Mustangs’ home floor.

    The win clinches OC (21-6) a spot in next week’s Region 8 tournament and a spot opposite South Oldham in Friday night’s District 29 championship game. North (11-17) ends its year on a five-game losing streak after beating South Feb. 10.

  • Stephens: Tee’s big night joyful for everyone

    GOSHEN – Sports provide the full range of emotions, but too often it’s the negative emotions we see on display.

    The rage from a parent yelling at an official, the disappointment of an unexpected loss, the sadness of a season coming to an end – the negatives are easy to spot.

    But Friday at North Oldham we got to see an emotion you don’t often see on a court or field, but one that’s as noticeable as any.

    We saw pure joy.

    GOSHEN -- Heavily favored Oldham County needed a shot in the arm early Wednesday night in its District 29 tournament opener against North Oldham.

    The Lady Colonels got one from their star player.

    Ashley McMurtrey scored a career-high 41 points in just three quarters as OC ended North's season, 71-33, Wednesday night at North.

    OC (14-9) clinched a berth to next week's Region 8 tournament and a spot in Friday's district championship game, where it'll meet the winner of Thursday night's South Oldham vs. Trimble County game.

  • North loses, but Salinas the star

    GOSHEN – After seven years spent in the background of North Oldham’s boys basketball program, Tee Salinas got his time in the spotlight Friday night.

    Salinas, a North senior who has Down syndrome, has been manager for the Mustangs since sixth grade. Friday against DeSales, Salinas put on a white North uniform and took his place in the starting lineup.

    Salinas scored a layup on the Mustangs’ first possession in North’s 51-32 loss to the Colts.
