Oldham Resigns as Hopkins Central Girls’ Basketball Coach

Nancy Oldham has stepped down as head coach of the Hopkins County Central Lady Storm after two seasons in her second stint.

The veteran coach won 331 games in her coaching career that spanned 17 seasons.  She was 21-34 in the past two seasons at Hopkins County Central.  The Lady Storm were 9-18 and are scheduled to return most of their players next year.

“This was a very difficult decision for me as I love my players, Lady Storm Basketball and Hopkins County Central High School.  I returned to coaching to help rebuild the Lady Storm program.  I feel we made progress over the past two years and the program is in great shape,” Oldham said in a statement.  “With everyone returning and several young players receiving a lot of varsity time, next season should be the best yet.  Now it’s time for me to step down and let a young energetic coach take the Lady Storm to the next level.  I would like to thank the administration for giving me the opportunity to coach again.  Thanks to my assistant coaches and my players for all the good times over the years.”

Oldham was the first girls’ basketball coach at Hopkins County Central from 1996-2004. Her teams were 156-89 during that time.

Prior to the consolidation of the Hopkins County schools, Oldham led West Hopkins to a 154-55 record from 1990-96.  Oldham’s teams at the two schools won 11 Seventh District titles, three region championships, and three Class A Regional championships.   She also led her teams to a runner-up and final four finish in the All-A State and made the KHSAA Sweet 16 quarterfinals twice.

Oldham has previously served as athletic director at Hopkins County Central.
