South Oldham

  • 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.

  • South swim selects Scarth
    After swimming competitively for much of his life, Spencer Scarth said he was looking to give back to the sport as a head coach. South Oldham has given the 22-year-old that chance, naming Scarth as its swim coach. The Redding, Conn., native recently graduated from St. Olaf College in Minnesota, where he was a member of the swim team. “I was kind of looking for jobs in the area,” said Scarth, a graduate student at Louisville. “…I went on interviews with a couple of them and South Oldham seemed like the best fit.”
  • Volleyball: North beats South, sets up OC showdown
    GOSHEN – In order to set up a winner-take-all district match next week against Oldham County, North Oldham needed to take care of business at home Tuesday against South Oldham. The No. 14 Lady Mustangs did just that, sweeping the Lady Dragons 3-0 (25-17, 25-7, 25-21). North and No. 5 OC are now both 2-0 against South and Trimble County, meaning the winner of their matchup Tuesday in Buckner will claim the No. 1 seed for next month’s District 29 tournament.

Then against South Oldham Friday he broke some more big plays, none bigger than a 48-yard fourth-quarter sprint to the end zone that gave North a 21-7 lead on its way to a 28-14 win in Dragon Stadium.
  • Football: North holds off South, keeps county title

  • Boys golf: Mustangs run table Thursday, win third straight Oldham Cup
    PROSPECT – North Oldham had a steep task in topping its 2013 Oldham Cup performance when it hit the course to defend the title last week. One year ago the Mustangs won the three-day, three-team title against Oldham County and South Oldham by scoring seven-and-a-half points out of a possible eight on the final day, a competition record. North beat its own feat on Sept. 18 at Nevel Meade Golf Course, winning all eight of its matches to secure the Cup for the seventh time. North totaled 14 points overall, with OC claiming eight and South two.

No. 8 South (10-2) has scored five goals in each of its last two games (including a 5-1 win at Nelson County Monday night) after losing 8-4 at No. 3 West Jessamine on Saturday – a loss that broke an eight-match winning streak.
