  • North boys soccer win season...

    GOSHEN – North Oldham didn’t waste time laying claim to its own tournament Monday night.

    The Mustangs scored two goals within a minute and a half of each other less than 15 minutes into the match and then held on for a 3-1 win over Kentucky Country Day in the opening round of the Mustang Classic.

    The season-opening win was the first for new North coach Chad Niedert.

    “We weren’t particularly pleased with the possession we played… but that’s splitting hairs when you win 3-1 to start a season,” Niedert said.

  • Back home

    Oldham County is a special place to me.

    I first came to this county in the summer of 2011 as a 20-year old college kid. My only day-to-day journalism experience to that point had been a spring on the Western Kentucky baseball beat for my college paper.

    As a summer intern I was going to get my first taste of sports reporting at a professional newspaper.

    Then two weeks before I started Mickey Patterson, Era sports editor since sometime during the Reagan Administration, stepped down.

  • Local rugby champion

    While Oldham County is not considered a hot bed for rugby players, the county can now say it has produced a national champion.

    Erin Overcash, a 2009 graduate of North Oldham High School, recently won the USA rugby’s club national championship.

    Overcash was a very talented athlete for the Mustangs. She played basketball and track, winning two state championships in the high jump.
