  • Boys Basketball: Hagan hits game-winner to beat North Bullitt

    GOSHEN – North Oldham junior Seth Hagan is known more for his rebounding and defense than his scoring.

    But his coach, Rob Burton, has been telling Hagan he’d get his chance to hit a big shot.

    “I actually talked to Seth earlier in the week,” Burton said, “and I said, ‘Be ready, because you’re going to have some moments here.’”

    One such moment came Tuesday night against North Bullitt.

  • Swimming: North wins 5th straight county crown

    LOUISVILLE – The county’s three schools have competed for the Oldham County Cup for six years now, but one school has dominated the series.

    North Oldham was best in the pool once again Saturday night, sweeping the boys’ and girls’ titles to win the Cup for the fifth straight year.

    North totaled 498 points in the meet held at the University of Louisville’s Ralph Wright Natatorium – the same facility which will host the upcoming region and state events.

  • Boys Basketball: Heckenberg, Henry combine to beat Anderson

    LAWRENCEBURG – All it took was one look.

    Deadlocked in a 68-68 duel with Anderson County and less than 30 seconds to play, North Oldham's Taylor Heckenberg glanced to his right. A simple backdoor play was there for the taking.

    Heckenberg found Jon Jon Henry behind the Anderson defense for a layup. Fouled on the play, Henry converted the 3-point play that powered North to a 73-71 win over the host Bearcats in a Region 8 showdown Tuesday.

  • Boys Basketball: Hard-to-guard Henry leads North

    Jalen Henry cracked up Monday when he was asked how a team might go about guarding his older brother, Jon Jon Henry.

    “I really don’t know,” Jalen said. “I guess you’d have to play him really close, just don’t let him get the ball… But I don’t think you can stop that, really.”

    Not many people have stopped Jon Jon Henry this season.

    CRESTWOOD – South Oldham lost the first, second and fourth quarters against North Oldham Wednesday night by a combined total of 39-38.

    South out-scored the Lady Mustangs 26-4 in the third and won 64-43 in a District 29 matchup.

    The Lady Dragons (10-7, 2-0 district) can now clinch the top seed in next month's district tournament if they beat Trimble County at home on Feb. 2.

  • Boys Basketball: Mustangs out-play Colonels in district upset

    GOSHEN – According to both its coach and star player, North Oldham had yet to play a full game this season heading into its showdown Friday night against then-No. 11 Oldham County.

    “We always said if we put four quarters together we can beat anybody and we’ll be tough to beat,” Mustang senior guard Jon Jon Henry said.

    “We’ll usually have one, maybe two (good quarters) per game,” North coach Rob Burton said. “But we’ve never been able to put four quarters together defensively or offensively.”

  • Girls Basketball: OC beats North for first district win

    GOSHEN – Missed shots plagued Oldham County in its first two district games, both losses.

    The Lady Colonels shot 26 percent in a 47-34 loss at Trimble County last month and 31 percent Jan. 9 in a 48-39 loss to South Oldham.

    Staring at a 0-3 District 29 record, OC finally scored some points Friday and picked up a district win.

    Senior center Abigail Stewart led the way with 18 points as the Lady Colonels won 59-32 at North Oldham.

    NEW CASTLE – Megan Payton’s 17-point outburst in the second half wasn’t enough to help the Henry County Lady Cats come back from a 16-point second half deficit against North Oldham Thursday in a 48-36 Lady Mustang win.

    The host Lady Cats struggled offensively in the first half and found themselves down 22-11 at halftime. Henry managed just three points in the first quarter to the Lady Mustangs’ 11 points.

    The Lady Cats had trouble with the Lady Mustangs’ full-court pressure and their inside height throughout the first half.

    Beasley and John led Kentucky to a 33-19 fourth-quarter lead. Kentucky then held off a late Tennessee rally to win the game.
