North Oldham

  • BOYS BASKETBALL: Oldham County, North on opposite sides of the regional bracket

    Oldham County finds itself in a familiar situation heading into its Region 8 Tournament opener against Gallatin County Saturday at noon. Last season, the Colonels took home the District 29 championship entering the regional tournament with momentum, only to fall short in the semifinals to Simon Kenton. If the Colonels (25-4, 13-1 Region 8) want to write a different script for their future this season, they have to focus solely on the present and Gallatin County (9-18, 6-15).

    Having suffered an embarrassing defeat earlier this month, the North Oldham Lady Mustangs were determined to prove this year's district tournament wasn't a cake walk for top-seeded Trimble County.

  • 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.

  • Wrestling squads tune up for region

    The county’s three wrestling programs are hoping some final tune-ups will help propel them to better performances at the regional meet.

    Both North Oldham and Oldham County’s wrestling teams finished fourth in their class at State Duals two weeks ago in Union County. The non-sanctioned KHSAA event takes place two weeks before the state’s event in Lexington.

  • Boys: Runnin' Rebels outrace North

    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.

    The Mustangs (15-13) fell on their home court to region foe Owen County (23-4), 58-55 after North Oldham’s last minute 3-point attempt fell well short of the basket.

    The fact North was even in the game at the buzzer was a testament to their play, coach Rob Burton said.
