  • 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.

  • KHSAA Class 4-A Football...

    GOSHEN – Six seconds, two tips and 61 yards ended North Oldham’s dream season Friday night in the most brutal way imaginable.

    North was six seconds away from its first trip to the state title game, needing only to prevent a Red Devils touchdown.

    North Oldham

    North Oldham must replace one of its best wrestlers in school history, Mitch Rusch.

    Rusch finished third last season in the 160-pound class at the KHSAA state wrestling championships in Lexington.

    He graduated in June and is now wrestling at St. Catharine College.

    “That’s definitely a big loss,” coach Tony Zeppa said. “He’d been with the program for six years… and was a six-time state qualifier.
