    The Mustangs used a consistent approach to beat second-place Covington Catholic by 16 points.

    Sophomore Trenton Fryman led the way for North that day, finishing eighth in the class with a time of 16:59.63.

    Next was freshman Alex McClarty at No. 12 (17:05.41).

    LOUISVILLE – Rob Burton had two choices when he was named North Oldham’s boys basketball coach just weeks before the start of summer ball.

  • Region 8 baseball: Wiley one-hits North

    NEW CASTLE – Zach Wiley was hitting spots with his fastball, keeping hitters off-balance with a hard slider and letting a superb defense make plays behind him.

    Wiley pitched a one-hit shutout Monday night for his Collins Titans, who beat North Oldham 4-0 in the final first round game of the Region 8 tournament at Henry County.

    North’s lone hit was a fifth-inning Cameron Masterman single that broke up Wiley’s perfect game. The Bellarmine University signee had already thrown a no-hitter this spring against rival Shelby County.
