  • Cross-country: Cole Dowdy, Searcy claim county titles

    BUCKNER – The Oldham County championships Wednesday went to prove just how even cross-country competition is in the county this season.

    Host Oldham County won the girls championship after the Lady Colonels got the advantage over North Oldham and South Oldham thanks to a tiebreaker.

    South swept the individual titles, with sophomore Hallie Searcy winning the girls 5K and junior Cole Dowdy winning the boys championship.
     

  • Boys golf: North duo ready for state tourney

    Mason Lenhart and Josh Maier will head south this week for the second year in a row, only this time they’ll have a different objective on their minds.

    Last fall the duo went to the Leachman Buick-GMC-Cadillac/KHSAA State Tournament as part of North Oldham’s Region 6 runner-up team that was competing for a state title.

    The Mustangs didn’t qualify for this year’s state tournament but Lenhart, a sophomore, and Maier, a senior, will go to Bowling Green Country Club anyway as individual competitors.

  • Boys soccer: Howard scores two, lifts South past North

    GOSHEN – Mason Howard is a player who gets overshadowed on his South Oldham team.

    Thirteen Dragons had scored going into South’s game at North Oldham on Oct. 1. Howard wasn’t one of them.

    But the senior midfielder put his name in the stat sheet in a big way against the Mustangs, scoring one goal with 25 minutes left in the match and another five minutes later on a penalty kick. His two goals were the decisive moments in a 2-1 Dragon victory.

  • Volleyball: North knocks off OC

    BUCKNER – North Oldham coach Brett Versen has had an eventful couple of weeks.

    On Sept. 15 his wife gave birth to their first daughter, Chaney Elizabeth.

    Ever since then Versen has had to balance life as a new father with his duties as first-year coach of the No. 15 Lady Mustangs.

    “It’s been a lot going on,” he said. “But it’s awesome.”

  • Boys golf: Shamrocks nip Mustangs for second

    PPROSPECT – The race to watch Tuesday at Nevel Meade Golf Course was the one for second place.

    St. Xavier obliterated the field at the Region 6 Tournament, shooting a 276. But each region is allowed two entrants into the state tournament, and the second spot was up for grabs between Trinity and North Oldham.

    One year ago at Midland Trail in Louisville it was the Mustangs who beat the Shamrocks, 305 to 306, for that runner-up spot and state tournament berth.

  • Girls golf seasons end

    All three county girls golf teams saw their seasons come to an end Monday afternoon in the Region 5 Tournament at Midland Trail in Louisville.

    Oldham County (421) was the highest-finishing of the county teams, coming in 10th.

    South Oldham (456) came in 13th. Molly Bebelaar led the way with an 89.

  • Girls soccer: North tops South, finishes county sweep

    CRESTWOOD – Playing in a district with Oldham County and South Oldham, North Oldham’s girls have been overshadowed in the past.

    The Lady Mustangs have sat and watched as the Lady Colonels and Lady Dragons both represented their district in the Region 8 Tournament in 2011, 2012 and 2013.

    North stopped that trend over the last week.

    The Lady Mustangs won 1-0 at South on Monday night at Dragon Stadium, four nights after beating OC 2-1 in Goshen.

  • Football: Mustangs blow chances, drop district opener

    TAYLORSVILLE – Several missed opportunities to score turned into one big missed opportunity for North Oldham to score a road win in its district opener.

    The Mustangs left 14 points on the field at Spencer County and lost 21-13 to the Bears Friday night in their first district game.

    Class 4-A, No. 7 North (3-2) missed two field goals and an extra point. The Mustangs also came away empty on a 1st and goal chance from the Spencer 1-yard line late in the first quarter.
