  • North Oldham ends season in...

    NEW CASTLE - North Oldham coach Rob Burton couldn’t have asked for a better start from his team to open the Region 8 Tournament versus Owen County. But rather than delivering a victory speech in the locker room after the game, he thanked the Mustangs for what he calls a successful first season complete as coach.

    North Oldham couldn’t hang on for 32 minutes with the hot-handed Owen County as the Rebels move on to the semifinals with a 67-61 win, ending the Mustangs’ season at 16-16.

  • Oldham County’s Region 8 run cut...
