    North Oldham had more than a dozen players selected to the all-Class 4-A, District 3 first and second teams following a 10-3 year.

    The Mustangs won the district title for the first time and advanced to the state semifinals, where they fell to Owensboro.

    The following players were selected:

    First team – Taylor Heckenberg (QB), Arien Beasley (RB and returner), Mike Marquez (TE), Ryan Jones (OT), Nicky Ingemi (OG), Collin Portman (DE), Cole Emery (OLB), Kevin Graham (LB), Matt Clark (DB)

  • Girls Basketball: Slow start...

    GOSHEN – North Oldham’s players are getting used to a new way of doing things, coach Dan Pfaff said.

    From different warmups to new offensive and defensive systems, the Lady Mustangs are trying to change their culture and climb out of the District 29 cellar.

    But combine first-game jitters with a hot-shooting opponent and North Oldham dug too deep a hole Wednesday night.

    North Bullitt raced out to a 30-4 lead early in the second quarter and went on to win 71-41 in the season opener for both teams.

    Three Oldham County football seniors were honored with Most Valuable Player awards at the team’s year-end banquet.

    Harding threw for 1,912 yards and 22 touchdowns and ran for 2 touchdowns for the Colonels (3-8), who were eliminated by Pleasure Ridge Park last month in the first round of the KHSAA Class 6-A Playoffs.

    LOUISVILLE – Oldham County faced its highest-ranked opponent of the season Tuesday night in just its second game.

    The Lady Colonels managed to keep things respectable against No. 6 DuPont Manual, but still fell 56-37 at L.J. “Butch” Charmoli Gymnasium.

    Tonysha Curry paced Manual (1-0) with 16 points and 13 rebounds. 6-foot-4 junior center Krys McCune, playing in front of recruiters from the Universities of Kansas and Tennessee, added 15 points.

    The Lady Crimsons forced 25 OC turnovers and out-rebounded the Lady Colonels (1-1) 48-26.

    GOSHEN – No one at Mustang Stadium Friday night will soon forget what they saw.

    They won’t forget North Oldham’s furious rally to take a 24-21 lead with six seconds left in a KHSAA Class 4-A State Semifinal against Owensboro.

    They won’t forget the celebration that followed sophomore Jackson Wine’s go-ahead field goal that looked like it would guaranee the Mustangs their first trip to the state championship.

  • Boys basketball: Mustangs fight...

    GOSHEN – Rob Burton’s North Oldham coaching debut looked like it might end in a Mustang comeback win Monday night.

    North cut Bullitt East’s 49-27 halftime lead to 60-56 early in the fourth quarter but the Chargers rallied to pull away and win 78-64.

    The loss was still a positive night for the Mustangs considering:

    –Bullitt East (1-0) was ranked No. 16 in the preseason by the state’s coaches, while North (0-1) was unranked and picked by coaches to finish 10th in Region 8.

  • Stephens: ‘Cats show they can...

    LEXINGTON – Providence College displayed a game plan Sunday against No. 1 Kentucky that was straight out of its old-school Big East Conference roots.

    The Friars shortened the game with long offensive possessions and kept UK out of an offensive rhythm by effectively playing both man and zone defenses.

    The more-talented Wildcats would’ve preferred to get up-and-down, turning blocks and steals into fast breaks. Instead they had to play at the knock-down, drag-out pace Providence dictated.

    UK ended up whipping the Friars at their own game.
