North Oldham

  • North boys hold on to beat South, win region

    SHELBYVILLE – North Oldham boys soccer was in a familiar position at halftime Thursday night.

    Just eight days before, North had led South 1-0 at halftime of the District 29 final. The Dragons roared back with three second half goals to win 3-1.

    The Mustangs were again up 1-0 Thursday in the championship game of the Region 8 tournament at Collins High School. Only this time, things ended differently than before.

  • North, South boys meet for fourth time tonight

    South Oldham was in a similar situation one year ago at this time.

    The Dragons had split their two regular season matchups with Oldham County and beaten the Colonels in the District 29 title. The teams met a fourth time in the Region 8 championship game, and South beat OC 2-0.

    This season South split two regular season games with North Oldham and beat the Mustangs 3-1 in last week's District 29 final. Now the Dragons will play North a fourth time, with everything on the line.

  • North Boys Golf Finishes 7th at State Tournament

    BOWLING GREEN – North Oldham boys golf didn’t meet its goal of a top five finish at this week’s state tournament. But, in the end, the Mustangs still finished better than two-thirds of the other squads at the Bowling Green Country Club.

    North finished with a cumulative team score of +65, good enough for a seventh place finish in the 24-team event. The Mustangs shot 319 the first day and 322 the second day, finishing with a total score of 641.

  • South facing defending 5A runner-up Friday

    South Oldham has a chance to create a good position for itself in the Class 5A District 5 race Friday.

    The Dragons (4-3, 2-0 District 5) will head north to Cooper (2-5, 0-2), attempting to keep an unblemished district record alive.

    But in order to leave Union with a 3-0 district record, South will have to take down an opponent it’s struggled against.

    “We’ve never beat Cooper,” coach Jamie Reed said. “We’ll need a good week of practice from everyone because it’ll be a tough game.”

  • NOHS Boys Golfers Make the Cut

    BOWLING GREEN – North Oldham fought tooth-and-nail with tough Region 6 competition to make the KHSAA state tournament.

    Once the Mustangs got to Bowling Green they found themselves fighting more against the course than the competition.

    North fought wind and a tough course to shoot a 319 Tuesday at the Bowling Green Country Club, allowing the Mustangs to make the 12-team cut and advance to Wednesday’s final round.

  • North Boys Headed to State Golf Final

    LOUISVILLE – Michael Vissing walked off the 18th green at Midland Trail Monday afternoon frustrated he’d double bogeyed the final two holes.

    “I stormed off the green because I didn’t think we were going to go (to the state tournament),” Vissing said.

    But Vissing’s anger soon turned to joy, as North Oldham’s cumulative team score of 305 proved to be the second best score among all teams at the Region 6 tournament, clinching the Mustangs a trip to next week’s state tournament in Bowling Green.

  • County title up for grabs

     North Oldham came within one point of repeating as county champs last season.

    The Mustangs had already beat Oldham County 16-10 and needed a win over South Oldham, a team it had beat four out of the five previous years, to win the unofficial county title.

    But South pulled off a dramatic 43-42 double overtime win over the Mustangs, taking the Oldham County crown for itself.

  • Oldham Cup a cool, classy event

     PROSPECT – You couldn’t ask for a better setting than the one found last Thursday afternoon at Nevel Meade Golf Course.

    The temperature was around 70 degrees, with a light breeze blowing throughout. The course was well manicured, from the smooth fairways to the rock waterfall guarding the sixth green.

    And all around the course was good competition.

    Players from North Oldham, Oldham County and South Oldham High Schools were playing in the Oldham Cup, an annual event pitting the county’s three schools against each other.
