    Oldham County, defending district champ, returns three starters but must replace Ashley McMurtrey, the second leading scorer in program history.

    South Oldham, after not winning the district last year for the first time since 2007-08 has rebooted the program with new coach Jessica Conner.

    North Oldham keeps a checklist on the white board in its locker room that includes goals set before the season.

    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.
