  • Crawfordsville’s baseball team has extended their winning streak to 13 after surviving a slight scare from visiting Western Boone Thursday. The game ended with the Athenians (13-0, 4-0 Sagamore Athletic Conference) on top of an 8-3 score despite an early 2-1 deficit.

    Senior Michael Minks was clutch. With three base-hits, four RBIs and a two-run shot off sophomore Star pitcher Zach Prickett in the third inning, Minks single-handedly (or double, rather) pulled the Athenians ahead in a game that seemed to go to-and-fro.

    Athenian head coach John Froedge said after the game that, despite the win, Thursday’s score was closer than he’d like.

    “It definitely wasn’t our best showing of the year, but obviously we did enough,” Froedge said. “Caden (Jones) pitched really well in his other appearances – he struggled a bit today with his command but he hung in there really tough. I’m really proud of him to get through six innings [and] get what we needed tonight.”

  • The Southmont Mounties fell to Sagamore Athletic Conference rival Tri-West on Thursday.

    The Mounties scored runs in the third, sixth and seventh innings of the baseball game, but unfortunately they could not rack up enough runs to win. The final score was 12-5.

    Helping out the Mounties on Thursday was Devin Miller with two runs and Koy Archer finished with two hits and one run. Adding one run each to the scoreboard was Risty Bullerdick and Nathan Jent.

    The Southmont Mounties will be up to bat next on Saturday versus Danville starting at 11 a.m.

  • Cougars race past Chargers with big first

    LINDEN – North Montgomery hosted North Putnam Wednesday evening looking to put another notch in the win column. However, the Cougars used a three run first inning and cruised to a 9-2 victory on a chilly night for softball.

    The Cougars first four batters reached base, two via hits and two by walk. The first three would score, and the Cougars led 3-0 after a half-inning.

    Zoey McCormick supplied the offense for the Chargers in their half. The senior lifted a ball to left center field that saw the left fielder and center fielder collide on the play. McCormick took advantage and came around to score to cut the Cougar lead to 3-1.

    “McCormick’s a senior leader,” said North Montgomery head coach C.J. Adams. “She’s normally our third baseman, but we moved her to shortstop tonight to give our catcher a break. With five games scheduled this week, we wanted to make that change.”
