  • Mounties survive Chargers
    Tuesday, October 06, 2015 10:38 PM

    North Montgomery and Southmont met for the third time this season. The Mounties defeated the Chargers 8-0 on Sept. 1 and 6-1 on Sept. 28.

    So, what appeared to be a lopsided game, at least on paper, was anything but.

    The Mounties used two goals in the last ten minutes from Macy Zachary to escape with a 2-0 win over their County and Conference rivals.

    “Give North Montgomery credit,” said Mountie head coach Julia Pierce. “Their first half was amazing. They came out and played their hearts out.”

    “You look at the other two times we played them, and this was 100 percent different from then,” said Charger head coach Julie Hodges. “We showed up and gave everything we had. I couldn’t be more proud.”

    Tuesday’s Sectional match-up between Crawfordsville and Western Boone was their second game in less than a week. The Stars beat the Athenians 5-0 on both teams regular season finale on Sept.30.

    The Athenians knew they would need to pick up their intensity and pressure and play a complete game to have a chance to upset Western Boone.

    In the end, it was a goal by the Star’s Lena Goerke with 36 seconds remaining to give them a 2-1 victory.

    Athenian Coach Brent Bokhart said the difference Tuesday was intensity. “We lacked that the first time around, and I thought we played with more tonight.”

    The North Montgomery tennis team, South No. 1 doubles, and C’ville No. 1 singles took to the courts Tuesday to continue the IHSAA tournament.

    After a big comeback by No. 1 doubles, Mitch Merica and Tyler Swick, North snatched the win 4-1 of the first round of regionals. South’s Justin Lowe and Jack Reimondo faced Fountain Central in 6-4, 6-3 sets with Fountain Central advancing. C’ville’s Dane Baldwin clinched a spot for tonight against West Vigo’s No. 1 singles.

    Team-wise, North’s No. 3 singles Sam Jackman was, once again, first off the court with a 6-0,6-0 win. No. 2 doubles Jaxon Plant and Matt Jackman grabbed the second win 6-0, 6-3 while Merica and Swick continued to battle.

    They got down 2-1 in the first set and could not set their feet from there. The second set saw a different doubles.

    Southmont took Seeger to five sets Tuesday: 25-20, 25-19, 19-25, 26-28, 9-15. South has battled like this before but could not pull it out.

    "We had way too many service errors," Coach Kristin Charles said. "We played very will in game one and game two and then I am not sure what happened in three through five."

    South will be up next against Frankfort next Tuesday.

    Crawfordsville took the courts Tuesday, winning in three straight sets but each set was a fight ‘til the end.

    The Athenians walked away with a 25-21, 26-24, 25-19 win over Sagamore Athletic conference rival Frankfort.

    The teams rose their score in almost complete unison during the first set, but the Lady Athenians snatched a close 25-21 win. As the second set began, the Athenians began to fall back. This lead to an 18-22 deficit, the Athenian squad rallied back to take another victory of 26-24. In the third set, the Athenians defeated the Hot Dogs 25-19.

  • Life’s a race
    Tuesday, October 06, 2015 4:54 PM

    Her life is one giant race against time.

    Two sports. Show choir. School. Life . . .

    These are all the activities of one Southmont Mountie who has something every day and never stops.

    She is a four-sport athlete. She runs . . . all the time. And, right now, she is preparing for both soccer and cross country sectionals.

    Kelsey Dugger is a sophomore at South and this is her second year in a row of playing two fall sports.

    “When I got into high school, I was like, ‘I don’t want to give up soccer but I really like cross country,’ so I decided I would do both and I did it again this year because I love both sports so much,” Dugger said.

    The Tri-West ladies soccer team advanced to the second round of Sectional 44 here, with a lopsided 5-1 victory over Cascade in the first of two Monday night contests.

    The Bruins’ Hayley Stroup and Lexi Turner each regis­tered two goals en route to the Tri-West victory. The win avenged a 3-2 Cadet victory on September 9.

    “We were a little nervous coming in, because Cascade was the last team to beat us,” assessed head coach Elainna Kish. “We came out excited, and ready to play. They were aggressive, but we fought past that.”

    Hello sports fans!  

      Fall sports are starting to come to an end and that means senior nights and sectional games. Since I’m often at many events on a given night, I usually try to time things so I miss the senior night celebrations.  I guess I missed one great photo opportunity of a senior night last week.

        Sounds like South girls’ soccer had one very memorable senior night.  The way I understand it, junior Ali Swank was rather excited about seeing a llama at the Pet Supplies Plus. Coach Julia Peirce decided that since she knew the owner of the llama why not have them bring for senior night to surprise the girls. I’m positive the South girls’ will always remember their senior night and the apprences of a llama in and old no longer used soccer jersey.
