    The junior sprinter will compete Friday at the KHSAA Class 2A Championships in Lexington. She’ll run as the No. 1 seed in the 4x200 meter relay, 400 dash and the 4x400 meter relay for a North girls team in the hunt for a state title.

  • Boys Basketball: Veteran coach...

    North Oldham’s boys basketball program has struggled to establish stability in its short history.

    North athletic director Alan Yanke hired a coach last week he thinks can bring that stability.

    Assistant Rob Burton was hired to fill the Mustangs’ head coaching vacancy, the school announced May 14.

    Burton, a North assistant the last six years, replaces Chris Stobaugh, who wasn’t retained after two years as North’s head coach. Stobaugh went 29-28 over two seasons, including an 11-17 mark in 2013-14.
