  • Class 4-A football playoffs:...

    North Oldham started its postseason the same way it ended the regular season — shutting out its opponent.

    The Mustangs beat Nelson County 48-0 Friday in Goshen in the first round of the Class 4-A playoffs.

    North (8-2) has now shut out its opposition in five straight games. The Mustangs allow 7.2 points per game and haven’t given up a point since a Sept. 26 loss at Spencer County.

  • KHSAA Class 6-A football...

    LOUISVILLE – Having won two of its last three regular season games, Oldham County was hoping to shock the world with an upset in the first round of the KHSAA Class 6-A playoffs Friday night.

    Pleasure Ridge Park had other plans.

    The Panthers (6-4) ran up and down the field on an OC squad that was flat from the opening kickoff. PRP scored on its first six possessions, either by a long touchdown run or a short one set up by a longer play, racing off to a 42-7 victory over the Colonels (3-8).

  • KHSAA volleyball tournament: Top...

    LOUISVILLE – Playing the No. 1 team in the state, North Oldham had a chance to blow up the bracket Friday in the first round of the KHSAA Volleyball State Tournament.

    The Lady Mustangs instead, in the words of coach Brett Versen, “came out flat” and paid the price.

    Top-ranked Mercy swept No. 12 North 25-11, 25-16, 25-16 at Valley’s J.C. Cantrell Gymnasium, ending the Lady Mustangs’ season in a match that took just 1 hour, 1 minute.

    The Jaguars (37-1) will meet South Warren on Saturday afternoon in the state quarterfinals.

  • KHSAA boys soccer semifinals:...

    LEXINGTON – The 2014 South Oldham Dragons put together what was probably the best boys soccer season in school history.

    South beat St. Xavier for the first time. The Dragons beat both Oldham County and North Oldham in the regular season, then North twice more to win the District 29 and Region 8 championships.

    South topped an undefeated Fern Creek team in the first round of the KHSAA State Tournament and then whipped Rowan County to advance to its first state semifinal in school history.

  • KHSAA girls soccer state...

    LEXINGTON – No. 19 stood on the 19-yard line at Henry Clay’s Bell Stadium Wednesday night in a familiar position.

    Stephanie Rowland, South Oldham’s all-time leading goal scorer, had hit plenty of free kicks over the years, some from long distance.

    But none had ever come in a match this big – a KHSAA state semifinal against No. 2 Notre Dame with a trip to the state championship game on the line.

    Standing about five yards left of the left football hash mark, Rowland ran up and belted the ball high to the right.
