  • Mounties look to keep rolling
    Monday, November 30, 2015 11:56 PM

    NEW MARKET – Southmont returns a wealth of experience from last year’s sectional championship and third place regional and conference finishing team. They will return two state qualifiers, four semi-state qualifiers and two regional champions. To say they are looking for more this season would be an understatement.

    “We’re excited about this upcoming season,” Mountie coach Kevin Wilkinson said. “We’re just trying to keep the momentum going from the end of last season.”

  • Youthful Crawfordsville looking to build
    Monday, November 30, 2015 11:52 PM

    Crawfordsville is in the middle of a youth movement in their wrestling program, but don’t think that’s a bad thing. Of their five upperclassmen, three were regional qualifiers, and two were semi-state qualifiers. That’s something that has head coach Chris Ervin looking forward to this season.

    “We like what we’ve seen early on, especially from the underclassmen,” Ervin said. “We’re looking at our upperclassmen to set the tone and lead the way this season.”

    Monday, November 30, 2015 11:50 PM

    LINDEN – The North Montgomery Chargers will have a grueling schedule as they will look to repeat as county champs and improve upon last year’s second place finishes at conference.

    However, the Chargers biggest prize would be to win the team state tournament in early January.

    The Chargers return a nucleus of young guys, juniors, sophomores and freshmen with quite a bit of wrestling experience.

  • County boys start strong
    Monday, November 30, 2015 11:47 PM

    Ah, were finally in full swing of basketball season now that the boys got their season rolling last week.

    I was pleasantly surprised by all three county boys’ teams as they opened up the season. You never know what to expect at the start of a new season.  All three boys’ teams look to me to be much improved over last season.

    So, I’m excited to see more games. North opened up the season by beating Speedway and getting some revenge over the Sparkplugs for a one point loss last season. The Chargers then fell to 4A Harrison on Saturday.

  • Wild ending sends Little Giants to Quarterfinals
    Sunday, November 29, 2015 7:49 PM

    What is it about second-round NCAA playoff games at Hollett Little Giant Stadium? It was a come-from-behind win on a 2-point conversion over North Central in 2011. Saturday's come-from-behind overtime victory over No. 9 Thomas More was thanks to a fumble recovery and 75-yard touchdown return, 33-27.

    Wabash trailed 27-13 late in the third quarter. Wabash's defense stepped up in a big way to shut down the potent Saints' offense and then turned in the game-winning play. Tied at 27 all in overtime, junior LV Bowden crashed into Saints' quarterback Brenan Kuntz causing a fumble. Ethan Buresh was right there to pick up the loose ball and run 75 yards for the score.

    The Athenians got off to a stifling start, jumping out to a 21-7 lead after the first quarter led by a pair of sophomores in Jack Sommer with eight and Cameron Harris with seven.

  • Chargers raided
    Sunday, November 29, 2015 7:44 PM

    WEST LAFAYETTE – After defeating Class 2A Speedway Wednesday evening by 10, North Montgomery travelled to Class 4A West Lafayette Harrison Saturday. The Raiders used a suffocating defense, and strong first half, to defeat the Chargers 68-42.

    “Our first two games are out of the frying pan and into the fire, as far as athletes,” said North Montgomery head coach Joel Grindle. “They’re (Harrison) a good basketball team, and they put a ton of pressure on you defensively, and I though we handled that better in the second half.”
