North Oldham keeps a checklist on the white board in its locker room that includes goals set before the season.
There are checkmarks in the boxes for winning the county title, the Class 4-A, District 3 title and each of the first two playoff games.
The Mustangs now have just three boxes left to check – wins in the state quarterfinal, semifinal and championship games.
North will try to fill one of those boxes when it plays at Fairdale at 7:30 p.m. Friday night. The Mustangs (9-2) are seeking their first ever win in this round of the playoffs.
