  • North’s dynamic duo, Parsons and Adams
    Friday, November 27, 2015 3:05 PM

    It all started in sixth grade. Two boys joined the same football team and the rest is history.

    Seven years and thousands of yards later, these same kids are graduating after receiving The Paper’s 2015 Montgomery County Football Players of the Year.

    Alex Parsons and Baylee Adams both received the award this year after a record-breaking 2015 season all around for North Montgomery.

    The Paper’s 2015 Montgomery All-County Team divides the county’s players into different positions on offense and defense with several doubling up on both sides of the ball. A total of 24 players made it onto the team filling 29 positions. Five players including Alex Parsons, Jordan Banta, Zach Worm, Trent Johnson and Ryan Barr were voted for both offense and defense.

    A 13-6-5, North-South-C’ville ratio makes up the Team. Starting with North, Alex Parsons (Player of the Year), Devon Zachary and Cole Clore graced the First-Team skills positions. These three contributed 47 touchdowns to North’s 68 during the season. Parsons had 11 receiving and 9 rushing, Zachary had 16 receiving (the most touchdown receptions in the county) and Clore had 8 rushing and 2 receiving.

    Amid the joys of family and memories this Thanksgiving, our attention begins turning to the many traditions, obligations, and demands on our time at the Holidays.

    I’m going to add one more. I need you to watch a football game, Saturday.

    Oh sure, watching football has long been among the citadels of Thanksgiving traditions––even for nonfans. But this year, I want you to start a new family tradition, and watch this Saturday’s game in person –– at Hollett Little Giant Stadium, Wabash College.

  • Mounties dominate Cougars
    Friday, November 27, 2015 2:47 PM

    NEW MARKET – The Mounties were looking for ‘The Next Man Up’ Wednesday night against visiting North Putnam. They were playing without the services of junior Kaleb Swick, who had to miss the game due to a flagrant foul the night before.

    Southmont received just that, in the scoring of Andrew Travers, and the rebounding of Jacob Budd, to win their home opener, in resounding fashion, 70-43.

  • Chargers win first outing over Plugs
    Friday, November 27, 2015 2:42 PM

    LINDEN – North Montgomery hit 9-of-12 free throws in the fourth quarter of Wednesday's contest to salt away a hard fought 63-53 victory over visiting Speedway. The win claimed the Chargers' first win of the 2015 campaign, and sent the Sparkplugs home 0-1 on the young season.

    North Montgomery was paced by 18 points from senior guard, Devon Zachary, who led all Chargers. Caleb Randolph scored 12, and Alex Parsons chipped in with nine. It was the Chargers' balanced scoring which pleased head coach Joel Grindle the most.

  • Purvlicis gets 1,000th point, hits game-winner vs. Rose
    Friday, November 27, 2015 2:40 PM

    Wabash senior Daniel Purvlicis enjoyed two celebrations Tuesday. His layup with 12.1 provided the game-winning basket in the Little Giants' 65-63 win over Rose-Hulman for the first victory in four seasons for the Little Giants over their in-state rivals.

    The basket scored two Purvlicis' team-best 24 points, sending him over 1,000 points for his career --- the 26th Wabash player to reach the 1,000-point plateau.

    The Chargers were back on the mats on Tuesday as they faced SAC rival Danville.

    The squad snatched their first SAC victory by defeating Danville 57-21.

    Winning their matches for the Chargers was Seth Johnson at 106, Ticker Mosely at 113, Corwyn Hall at 120, Jack Davis at 126, Cade Groves at 125, Tanner Webster at 170, Isaac Fruits at 182, Jacob Knowling at 195, Cole Slavens at 220, and Kevin Pierce at 285.

    “It went well.” Coach Maurice Swain commented, “We competed hard and it looked like they were ready to go and excited to wrestle.”

  • Mounties show grit in win
    Wednesday, November 25, 2015 12:41 AM

    WALLACE - Southmont's offense came alive at just the right time and their defense made some stops down the stretch to defeat pesky Turkey Run, 55-52, in both teams’ openers.

    "In our last six games at Turkey Run, we were 1-5, so now we're 2-5," said Mountie head coach John Sparks. "This is a tough place to win."

    The Warriors started hot, as they hit 55 percent of their field goals in the first quarter to race out to a 15-8 lead after one.

  • Athenians defeat Greencastle
    Wednesday, November 25, 2015 12:34 AM

    GREENCASTLE- Crawfordsville (1-0, 0-0 SAC) travelled to Greencastle (0-1) Tuesday night to clash with the Tiger Cubs on their home court. The Athenians rode on the scoring of senior Konnor Smith in the first half and Cameron Harris in the second to beat out the Tigers 63-54.

    The Athenians jumped out to an early 4-0 lead after a three-pointer from senior Ryan Barr. Greencastle responded and then set back in their 2-3 zone. This zone caused problems for the Crawfordsville offense.

    “The zone they (Greencastle) ran hurt us,” Athenian coach David Pierce said. “They weren’t very aggressive and it clogged up the middle for our drivers.”
