North Oldham

  • Stephens: Tee’s big night joyful for everyone

    GOSHEN – Sports provide the full range of emotions, but too often it’s the negative emotions we see on display.

    The rage from a parent yelling at an official, the disappointment of an unexpected loss, the sadness of a season coming to an end – the negatives are easy to spot.

    But Friday at North Oldham we got to see an emotion you don’t often see on a court or field, but one that’s as noticeable as any.

    We saw pure joy.

  • Combined title the goal for North swimming

    Expectations have changed for North Oldham’s swim team.

    Five years ago just qualifying a swimmer for the state tournament was a big accomplishment, North coach Randy Scherer said.

  • McMurtrey scores 41 as OC moves on

    GOSHEN -- Heavily favored Oldham County needed a shot in the arm early Wednesday night in its District 29 tournament opener against North Oldham.

    The Lady Colonels got one from their star player.

    Ashley McMurtrey scored a career-high 41 points in just three quarters as OC ended North's season, 71-33, Wednesday night at North.

    OC (14-9) clinched a berth to next week's Region 8 tournament and a spot in Friday's district championship game, where it'll meet the winner of Thursday night's South Oldham vs. Trimble County game.

  • Rusch finishes 3rd, Wilkerson 4th at state wrestling

    LEXINGTON – Two county wrestlers made the top four in their weight classes at the KHSAA state wrestling championships Saturday at the Alltech Arena.

    North Oldham senior Mitch Rusch finished third in the 160-pound weight class, losing 4-2 in overtime of a semifinal match with eventual state champion Dominic Lampe of St. Xavier.

    Rusch beat Central Hardin’s Cole Overman 9-2 in the third place match to finish his senior season 53-5.

  • North loses, but Salinas the star

    GOSHEN – After seven years spent in the background of North Oldham’s boys basketball program, Tee Salinas got his time in the spotlight Friday night.

    Salinas, a North senior who has Down syndrome, has been manager for the Mustangs since sixth grade. Friday against DeSales, Salinas put on a white North uniform and took his place in the starting lineup.

    Salinas scored a layup on the Mustangs’ first possession in North’s 51-32 loss to the Colts.

  • GIRLS DISTRICT 29: Lady Dragons rematch with Trimble

    South Oldham’s road to a sixth straight District 29 championship will begin with a tough start.

    The Lady Dragons will meet Trimble County at 6 p.m. Wednesday at North Oldham in the first round of the district tournament.

    South (8-12, 2-1 District 29) beat Trimble (15-7, 1-2) on Feb. 12 in Bedford, getting out to a 12-0 lead and holding on for a tense 49-46 win. The Lady Dragons, who will be the No. 2 seed when the teams meet Wednesday in Goshen, came into the matchup last week as underdogs.

  • BOYS DISTRICT 29: North has home court against OC

    There’s no place like home for North Oldham’s boys basketball team.

    In Goshen the Mustangs are 2-0 against county teams the last two years, including a 76-63 win against South Oldham Feb. 10.

    On the road they haven’t beaten a county team since 2011, including a 62-48 road loss to Oldham County Jan. 30.

    Luckily for No. 3 seed North (11-14, 2-1 District 29) it’ll have home court advantage when it hosts No. 2 seed OC (19-6, 2-1) in a first round district tournament game 7:30 p.m. Wednesday.

  • North cheer finishes Top 15 at UCA

    North Oldham High School cheerleaders finished 11th in the country at the UCA National High School Cheerleading finals in Orlando earlier this month.

    North competed in Super Large Varsity Division II. Only about a third of the teams made it to the finals and this is the first year North has competed in the national competition.

    Teams had to qualify for nationals through other competitions, in a process called “earning a bid” in cheerleading.
