  • North stars fall in state title...

    LA GRANGE – The North Oldham Little League Senior softball all-stars fell just short in their quest for a state title Monday, falling to Adair County 10-5 at Walsh Park.

    Adair County took the lead 2-0 in the second inning before the North stars came back to score two of their own in the third after Paige Whittaker reached on an error and Kelly Vogel tripled. Vogel scored off a fielder’s choice off the bat of Kara Stinson.

    Adair County, however, came back to break the game open with six runs in the fourth inning.
