  • KHSAA volleyball tournament: Top-ranked Mercy sweeps Lady Mustangs

    LOUISVILLE – Playing the No. 1 team in the state, North Oldham had a chance to blow up the bracket Friday in the first round of the KHSAA Volleyball State Tournament.

    The Lady Mustangs instead, in the words of coach Brett Versen, “came out flat” and paid the price.

    Top-ranked Mercy swept No. 12 North 25-11, 25-16, 25-16 at Valley’s J.C. Cantrell Gymnasium, ending the Lady Mustangs’ season in a match that took just 1 hour, 1 minute.

    The Jaguars (37-1) will meet South Warren on Saturday afternoon in the state quarterfinals.

    It’s tune-up week for the county’s three football programs.

    North Oldham, Oldham County and South Oldham will all play their regular season finales Friday before beginning the state playoffs on Nov. 7.

    For OC and South, Friday is a chance to fine-tune things and go into the playoffs with some momentum.

    North will have that objective Friday too, but can also improve its playoff seeding with a win and a little help from a school in a neighboring county.
