  • North last Oldham standing

    GOSHEN --- It wasn’t pretty, but North Oldham coach Billy Martin said afterward that he’d take it.

    The Mustangs scored the game’s first 29 points en route to a 42-20 win over visiting Valley in the first round of the Class 4A state football playoffs on Friday.

    But North Oldham didn’t make it easy on itself.

  • Fryman rallies to win state

    Early on, North Oldham eighth grader Trenton Fryman trailed at the KTCCCA Meet of Champions on Saturday in Lexington. 

    It was an unfamiliar position, but Fryman stayed patient. Near the two-mile mark of the 4K race at Masterson Station Park, Fryman made his move. He jetted into the lead and held on to win the boys’ middle school state championship in 13:43.19.

  • Greenwood outlasts North in...

    LOUISVILLE --- Before the third game of the semi-final of the KHSAA State Volleyball Tournament, the music was fitting.

    The song, “Going the Distance,” from the movie, “Rocky” played over the sound system at Bellarmine’s Knights Hall. It certainly was a heavyweight battle and in the end, Greenwood had enough to outlast North Oldham 25-17, 27-29, 25-15.

  • No let up as North moves on at...

    LOUISVILLE --- There wasn’t a whole lot of let up this morning.

    In its first round win over Letcher County Central yesterday at the KHSAA State Volleyball Tournament, North Oldham wasn’t happy with the way it let the Lady Cougars hang around.

    In their 25-7, 25-13 win over Allen Central in the quarterfinals this morning, the Lady Mustangs gave up little or no momentum and are moving on to this afternoon’s semi-finals.

  • South finishes strong at Shelby...

    SHELBYVILLE — South Oldham got on top quickly and never looked back in its regular season finale at Shelby County.

    Dragons junior quarterback Jack Sherry connected with senior running back Steward Williams for a 72-yard touchdown pass early in the first quarter to take an early lead and South Oldham rolled to a 34-16 win.

    After Williams' touchdown run, the Dragons forced a three-and-out to get the offense back on the field. South Oldham junior running back Dallas Banks then ripped off a 48-yard touchdown run for the final score.

  • Colonels come up short in...

    BUCKNER — Oldham County had thrice had the lead in the game, but with 1:53 left in the game, the Colonels trailed visiting Jeffersontown by four.

    On fourth down and 10, backup senior quarterback Stephen Farrow avoided a sack at midfield, scrambled to his left and fighting off a tackle, somehow got a pass off to senior wide receiver Kerry Smith, 20-yards downfield.

    But the ball fell off Smith’s fingertips and the Chargers ran out the clock for a 40-36 win, Friday.

  • North gets past sluggish start...

    LOUISVILLE — For the first game of its KHSAA State Volleyball Tournament opener, North Oldham played the way it wanted to play and easily won.

    But in the second game, the Lady Mustangs got away from their gameplan, prompting coach Brian Jones to call a timeout, up 9-8 over Letcher County Central. North Oldham got past the Lady Cougars 2-0, but if it’s to advance further in the tournament at Bellarmine’s Knights Hall, there can’t be any letting off the throttle.

  • ‘Pass back’ does in Oldham

    BUCKNER--- According to the National federation of High schools, Rule 12, section 7, article 3: An indirect free kick is awarded to the opposing team, "If the goalkeeper touches the ball with his/her hands after it is deliberately kicked by a player to his/her own goalkeeper.” 

    In large part because of this rule and the referee’s call that Oldham County violated the ‘back pass’ rule, the Colonels’ season ended Monday night with a 2-0 loss to St. Xavier in the state sub-sectional round at Oldham County.

  • Oldham’s season ends in region...

     

    BUCKNER--- Penalty kicks were the only thing standing in the way of the Lady Colonels and a region girls’ soccer championship.

    Oldham County scored the game’s first goal, just into the second half, but Christian Academy of Louisville evened the score to send the game into extra time, where it would ultimately defeat the Lady Colonels 3-1 in penalty kicks.

  • Mustangs roll with ground game...

    GOSHEN – All junior running back Jacob Raymond wanted was a chance to get into the secondary.

    Thanks to a dominating performance from his offensive line, he got more than enough chances, rushing for 231 yards on 21 carries to lead North Oldham to a 42-13 district win over Spencer County.

    After the game, Raymond first gave praise to his offensive line, which calls itself, ‘the fist.’

    “Like always, they were great,” Raymond said. “Get a good push so I can get into the secondary and I can do what I do.”
