  • North stops South

    GOSHEN – For Mica Watson it was simple – beat the guy in front of you and everything else will take care of itself.

    Watson, a North Oldham High School lineman, and the rest of the Mustangs’ front were able to do just that Friday as NOHS rolled by South Oldham 31-7.

    “We just wanted to work harder than they did, that was our goal coming into the game,” Watson said. “We really thought if we could control the line, we could win.”

  • SOHS downs Waggener in OT

     CRESTWOOD – All the same factors that had helped the South Oldham Dragons lose 19 straight football games came into play Friday – only this time they didn’t hold the Dragons back as SOHS snapped its losing streak with a 22-16 overtime win over Waggener.

    “Finally,” senior wide receiver R.J. Graziul said. “We just didn’t quit in this one.”

    Graziul had a big role in the win with an 87-yard kickoff return for a score that tied the game at 16 and eventually forced the overtime.

  • Rumbling volunteers

    GOSHEN – When more than 1,500 runners descended on the Creasey-Mahan Nature Center Saturday to compete in the Rumble in the Jungle meet most of them had no idea all the work that went in before the meet took place.

    Thanks to a small army of North Oldham parents and volunteers the meet went off without a hitch for the sixth year in a row.
