  • Mounties throttle Trojans
    Tuesday, April 25, 2017 4:00 AM
    NEW MARKET - The Lady Mounties received contributions from up and down their line up, pounding out 14 hits in A 15-5, five inning win over visiting Covington Monday evening.
    “Obviously, we wanted to get our bats going early, but we were a little slow at first,” said Mountie head coach Jennifer Watson. “However, we came around, and I’m proud of the girls for sticking to it.”
    “This is really the first game that we got offensive production out of all nine positions,” she continued. “So that was definitely good to see, and a big positive headed to Western Boone tomorrow night.”
    The Mounties wasted little time getting on the board. Avery Hess led off with a walk and moved to second on Sydney Casteel’s single to left. Hess scored on Jordan Crist’s double to right and Casteel made it 2-0 on Veda Emerson’s fielder’s choice.
    The Trojans tied it at two in the second before the Mounties scored another run in their half to make it 3-2.

    WEST LAFAYETTE – North Montgomery got off to a hot start at West Lafayette Monday night, but the bats went cold as the sun set and the Red Devils rode off into the failing light with an 11-8 baseball victory. 
    Caleb Donahue started things off with a single followed by the same from Bryce Frederick. With two outs in the first, Collin Knecht singled to drive home Donahue. Mitch Merica reached on an error, plating Frederick and a Devan Plant single scored Knecht. Matthew Pietsch took one for the team to load the bases before Quentin Hall plated a run with a free pass. Donahue capped a 6-run first by reaching on an error, bringing two across.

    After his commission as an Army helicopter pilot and ten days after traveling home for the Thanksgiving Holiday, Bill was deployed to South Vietnam. He arrived on Dec. 7, 1967 and began flights on Dec. 11 from Bearcat Base 10 miles north of Saigon. On Dec. 14, one week after arrival, Bill was killed when the craft he was piloting caught fire during a combat mission due to mechanical failure. Bill had volunteered for an additional combat assault mission and was leaving the landing zone. He and his crew were returning to pick up another load of combat troops. For an unknown cause, Bill’s helicopter transmission froze and the craft crashed into the jungle canopy near Phan Thieu at a high rate of speed, killing himself and all others aboard. Bill had been in country one week.
    Bill’s body arrived back in Linden on Dec. 21, 1967. With the Christmas holiday fast-approaching, the calling was held at Linden’s King Funeral Home on Saturday, Dec. 23. On Sunday, Bill’s funeral services were held at the Linden-Kirkpatrick Methodist Church. Following the service, WO Bill Clawson was laid to rest at the Linden Cemetery with full military rites conducted by a detail from Fort Benjamin Harrison.

  • Danville dingers doom Mounties
    Sunday, April 23, 2017 9:42 PM
    NEW MARKET – Foreboding clouds ushered in a biting northeast wind at Southmont, Saturday morning. Yet, visiting Danville found the atmosphere agreeable, and pierced the icy ceiling with three home runs en route to a 6-0 pounding of the hosts.
    It was the second foray into Montgomery County for Danville (6-3, SAC 5-0) in less than eight hours, in a game that was moved up to 10 a.m. anticipating deteriorating conditions. Friday night’s 3-1 win over North Montgomery, coupled with Saturday’s blanking of Southmont (3-5, SAC 0-5) rewarded the Warriors with an unsoiled share of the Sagamore Athletic Conference lead.
    Danville’s Collin Rutan ignited the Danville offense with a lofty three run homer in the top of the second that rode the wind over the left field fence.
    “Conditions didn’t help us any,” said Mounties head coach Jamie Welliever. “A soft fly ball hit to centerfield that I thought we could have been more aggressive on, and then a ground ball through the hole between third and short, and a big fly ball in the wind. Suddenly it’s 3-0.”

  • Adams hit gives North big SAC win
    Sunday, April 23, 2017 9:41 PM
    LINDEN- A very even game that went back and forth because of strong defense by both teams eventually ended with a 2-1 Sagamore Athletic Conference victory for North Montgomery over Western Boone Saturday. 
    Both teams struggled to get any hits off the opposing team during this game. The Stars were actually the first to strike. After a lot of three-up-three-down innings, Western Boone was finally able score a run to go up 1-0 in the fourth. All the pressure was put on the Chargers to respond. One run was not enough of a cushion for Western Boone as North tied the game in the bottom of the sixth off an RBI by Bryce Frederick to bring Justin Clary home.

  • Athenians stay perfect in Conference play
    Sunday, April 23, 2017 9:40 PM
    Chase Dowell was perfect through four innings, and the Crawfordsville bats were hot in Saturday’s cooler temperatures, as the Class 3A, No. 2 ranked Athenians stayed perfect in the Sagamore Athletic Conference with a 10-0 drubbing of Frankfort.
    Dowell was in command on the hill, as he needed only 51 pitches cruising through the first four innings. He faced the minimum number of batters while striking out seven Hot Dogs, including the side in the first.
    “Chase was dominant today,” said Athenian mentor John Froedge. “He really didn’t give them a chance in the game, and we grabbed the momentum early.”
    While Dowell was cruising on the mound, four Hot Dog pitchers couldn’t cool the Athenian bats as they scored in every inning except for the third.
    Crawfordsville collected nine of their 12 hits through the first three innings, scoring five runs, but stranded the bases loaded in all three.
    The Athenians ended the game by adding three more in the fourth, one in the fifth and one in the sixth.

  • Timely hits elude Chargers in loss
    Saturday, April 22, 2017 4:00 AM
    LINDEN – North Montgomery officially went to the plate 26 times Friday against Danville, and only once did they fail to put the bat on the ball. However, Warriors’ pitcher Riley Weston managed to spread out the seven Chargers’ hits, effectively rendering them harmless, and the visitors left clinging to a 3-1 Sagamore Athletic Conference victory in the second game of the series.
    The win secured a series sweep for Danville (5-3, SAC 4-0), who dropped North Montgomery (4-6, SAC 2-2) at home earlier this week.
    “I like the fight we had in us, tonight, as opposed to Tuesday,” said Chargers head coach Matt Merica, referring to the 11-6 pounding, which saw the hosts jump out to a 10-0 lead before the Chargers could answer.
    “This was a real good high school baseball game. We are disappointed that we lost, but there’s nothing you can point your finger at to say ‘that’s what caused it’. They just strung together a few more hits than we did.”

    The big Hoosier outdoor story of the week was the announcement that Indiana’s 2016 deer harvest was down four percent from the 2015 total. This information came from the Indiana Department of Natural Resources via the 2016 Indiana White-Tailed Deer Summary that was released April 13.
    Four percent isn’t that big a deal statistically but when you consider that the annual harvest has dropped four times in the last five years, some hunters are getting a little hot under the collar. However, we should conduct an examination of the harvest numbers over the past decades before the orange-clad masses start storming the state legislature to demand changes in the hunting seasons.
