    Hello Sports Fans.
    Maybe I’m getting old? Maybe the ol’ Caldron needs a good scrubbing? For the second week in a row and first time in an eternity, I sucked!
    Yup, yours truly went 4-4 for the week. Yes, that’s two weeks in a row with less-than-a- sparkling performance.
    What in the world is going on?
    The only thing worse than me taking it on the chin is the fact that our MCschools did also. After starting the first week of the season absolutely perfect, all three suffered the slings and arrows of outrageous misfortune last week . . . yes, I’m quoting the Bard here. Hey, somebody has to give sports fans some culture!
    This week, I absolutely, positively and most assuredly guarantee that at least one of our MCschools will pick up a win . . . yeah, you guessed it. North and South square off against each other. Listen, the way my season has started, the game’ll probably end in a tie.

    The Crawfordsville boys’ tennis singles defeated the Mounties in straight sets after Dane Baldwin came up for his sixth straight win against Aaron Cox.

    “I was feeling great,” Baldwin said. “I hit the shots the way I knew how to.”

    Baldwin is undefeated and has a big match coming up this weekend against Lafayette Jefferson, one of the four kids who beat him last year.

    “I will work hard during practice and just keep playing a bunch of tennis.”

    “Point goes to the Lady Mounties” booms across South’s gymnasium as the Mounties fight one of their hardest games of the season against the Cascade Cadets.

    The Mounties took the Cadets to four games in a breath-taking series in which there were an innumerable amount of lead-changes and tie scores.

    During the first set, South stayed on Cascade’s heel until double digits when Cascade started pulling away. They had a five point run after their lead of 17-14 which put the Mounties too far behind.

    Final score: 2-2. The Mounties sent two in on Thursday but could not salvage a third for the win. Cole Wemer and Travis Michael both scored goals. “It was not our best game, but it wasn’t our worst,” Coach Brandon Rash commented. “It seemed like we were content with the tie, and our effort dropped tremendously.”

    The Athenians pulled up short in Thursday’s game against the Tigers. The Athenians had six shots on goal while Joel Raters had two saves. “We need to do a much better job getting our head up to find the space available,” Coach Marcus Hale said. “The right wing was available the first half and the left wing was available the second half. We just did not possess to find it often enough.”

    Crawfordsville met Attica for the second time in two weeks Thursday. After disposing of the Red Ramblers 25-11, 25-5, on Aug. 22 to help them claim the North Putnam Invitational, the Athenians again swept their visitors, 25-14, 25-16, and 25-18.

    After leading 18-12 midway through the first set, Crawfordsville scored seven of the final nine points for the win.

    Attica kept things interesting in set two. They held a slim 5-4 lead before Caroline Schueren recorded one of her seven kills on the night to knot things up at five. Big sister, Paige, would record one of her four aces to give the Athenians a 7-5 lead.

    As a huge Chicago Cubs fan, I regret going to bed in the seventh inning of the Chicago Cubs 2-0 win over the Los Angeles Dodgers this past Sunday. Knowing that Jake Arrieta was just nine outs away from a no-no, I figured it was Cubs destiny and that they would probably break it up with a seeing eye single with two outs in the ninth.

    It was a close one but the North golf team pulled it out. The girls played a double conference match-up against Lebanon and Frankort.

    This was their third night in a row of play but that did not deter them.

    Lebanon came in two strokes behind North, hitting a 177. Five of the girls made it into the 40s with Bonwell at the helm shooting a 42 and Abbey Woodard right behind at 43. Megan Douglas and Scout Groves came in at 45 with Kristen Glass at 46.
