    FOUNTAIN CENTRAL- Last night was a season opener for many teams. Crawfordsville’s boy’s tennis team was one of them. They lost a very close match to Fountain Central 3-2. 
    This match could have gone either way. Crawfordsville took the number one and two singles matches, but were unable to win the number three singles match and were barely edged out in both doubles matches. Eddie Heinold, number one singles won his first match of the season in a competitive two sets 6-4, 6-3. Number two singles Ryan Fry is also off to a hot start with a convincing 6-2, 6-2 victory over his opponent. 
    The boys start off their season 0-1, but can rebound on Thursday when they host McCutcheon.

  • Knights too much for Mounties
    Tuesday, August 15, 2017 11:20 PM
    NEW MARKET – Coming off an impressive 3-1 win Saturday over Owen Valley, a different Southmont boys’ soccer team took the field Tuesday. The result was a 4-0 loss to Lafayette Central Catholic.
    “Saturday we were controlled and made the open passes,” Southmont head coach Brandon Rash said. “Tonight was the first time that we had to tell them to pick up the effort.”
    The Mounties fell into an early deficit when the Knights found the back of the net nine minutes into the contest. The visitors made it 2-0 going into the intermission. 
    “This is a young team and this was our first time going up against one of the better teams,” Rash said. “We have good leaders, but a lot of young guys, so we’re still finding our identities and coming together.”

    COVINGTON- The Charger’s volleyball team began their season with a match against Covington last night. Unfortunately they will begin 0-1 after this loss in three sets. The first two sets were lost 25-10 and the third concluded at 25-15. 
    This may not have been the outcome North hoped for, but they still had times of success. Mary Jackman led the team with three kills while Gracie Chapman, Tori Warren, and Kelsey Sabens all had two. Kasey Krutzsch was able to serve up three aces. Jackman threw up two aces of her own. Krutzsch was a solid sidekick in this game by having eight assists. Caroline Turner had five digs and Jackman had four. 
    North Montgomery (0-1) will have their chance to bounce back on Thursday when they go to Clinton Prairie.

    OXFORD- The North Montgomery girls soccer team traveled to Benton Central last night. The team shutout their opponents 3-0.
    All three goals came from different individuals in this game. Sidney Campbell, Nina Gable, and Marley Dyson were all able to contribute a score. The team effort went even further as Gable had an assist on one of the goals while Lillia Mitchell helped out with assists on the other two goals. 
    North’s defense was solid overall, but when someone was able to slip through the cracks, the keeper Regina Dodds was a wall. Dodds had four saves by the end of this game.

    NEW MARKET- The Lady Mounties soccer team began their season with a dominant 14-0 shutout victory over Owen Valley on Saturday.
    The team went up 8-0 in the first half and were able to tack on another six in the second. Unsurprisingly, Macy Zachary led South in scoring with five goals. Although Zachary will have a spotlight on her after a record breaking season last year, this game was an all-around team effort with Avery Hess scoring three goals and Lexie Odum putting in two of her own. Kelsey Dugger and Shannon Isenberg were able to score a goal apiece as well. Chy Davis had two saves on Southmont’s side of the field to keep Owen Valley off the scoreboard. 
    The Lady Mounties soccer team (1-0) will be back in action on Tuesday at home against Central Catholic.

  • Basketball in the Small Town of Linden Part 3
    Monday, August 14, 2017 4:00 AM
    Keith Airey has written about his memories of basketball in the small towns before consolidation. This was in the days when every small town had a school and every school had a basketball team whether there were 70 kids in the school or 700. Keith has given a voice to every boy who ever played basketball in Indiana, every girl who was ever a cheerleader or every kid who was ever in the pep block. These are the memories of a Linden Bulldog in the 60s who still bleeds black and gold.
    Written by Keith Airey
    Between my eighth grade and freshman year in 1967, my dad decided to build a bigger and better basketball court in Linden. Suddenly the Airey court became the place to gather if you were looking for a game. Sometimes I just planned to go out on my court just to shoot around by myself. Soon, one car would stop, then a second, etc; until there was a 4 on 4 game raging. The court wasn’t large enough for 5 on 5 so any arriving players gathered a team of 4 to take on the winners. There would be so many player cars lined up along the alley where we lived on those summer nights that if my dad returned from an evening vet call, he would have to drive all the way up the alley to park in our back yard. In the winter I would shovel off the snow and put salt on the ice to help the sun burn off the moisture. I remember wearing gloves to play which were warm but provided no grip on the ball. Sometimes you would take off your shooting hand glove until that hand became so cold you had to put it back on. Another tactic during winter ball was to have two basketballs. I would put one on the hot air register in the kitchen and when the playing ball became dead from the cold, I would go exchange the ball for a warm, bouncy ball. We wore out so many nylon or cotton nets that my dad eventually put up a chain net. Many players of the era can recall the distinct sound of the ball going through the chain net.

    SHERIDAN – Crawfordsville made the trip to Sheridan for their annual scrimmage against the perennial Class A power. The Blackhawks enter the season preseason ranked 9th in Class A, and are led by Larry “Bud” Wright, who’s in his 52nd season at the helm.
    “They’re a good football team that’s well coached, but we still have to execute,” said second year Athenian head coach Larry Getts. “We’re going to be outmanned and outgunned most of the time, but we still have to do the little things.”
    The scrimmage featured three quarters. Quarter one allowed both teams 15-plays or 18-minutes from 65-yards out while quarter two was from the 10-yard line with 10-plays and the third quarter was 12-plays from the 35.
    Crawfordsville’s defense knew they’d be tested with the Blackhawk rushing attack. Sheridan has been known for their smash mouth style of play, and they put that on display Friday only attempting five passes on the evening, but were able to score seven times.
    “We’ll have to go back and look at film and see what we need to do better,” Getts said. “We didn’t come out ready to play, and we’ll take that responsibility as coaches.”
