North Oldham

  • Lady Mustangs struggle against region foe

    The score suggested otherwise, but Thursday’s game between Shelby County and the Lady Mustangs left much to be desired by both coaching staffs.

    The Lady Rockets (23-50, one of the top teams in the 8th Region, easily dispatched North Oldham (14-12) on its home court, 58-31, to assert itself as one of the few teams that could win the region in a few weeks. But while the final score wasn’t close, North Oldham coach Dan Pfaff said they are positives for his team to take out of the loss.

    For the fifth time in a row, Oldham County’s wrestling team has risen to the occasion when it comes to winning a regional championship.

    “It’s something that’s special,” Oldham County coach Aaron Riordan said of the win.

    The county’s best swimmers are hoping months of meets will translate to championships as regionals get underway.

    All three county schools will compete on Thursday and Friday at Ralph R. Wright Natatorium at the University of Louisville, squaring off against each other and perennial swimming champions like St. Xavier and Sacred Heart.

    “We’re in the strongest region in the state,” Oldham County swim coach Michael Williams said. “All of (the schools) are powerhouse swim schools.”

    Like a horse that struggles to break from the starting gate, the North Oldham boys’ basketball team watched another game slip through their hands after a slow start Tuesday.
