  • Athenians handed first loss of the season

    With the thought of a perfect season on the back of everyone’s minds, Crawfordsville took to the field Tuesday against a Lebanon Tiger team that booted them from last year’s sectional.

    Crawfordsville (13-1, 6-1) almost survived Tuesday’s home game against the visiting Tigers from Lebanon (6-5, 4-3), but instead walked away with their first season, conference and home loss by a score of 4-3.

    Rallying late, the Athenians had a few missed chances, but perhaps none were more costly than the situation in the seventh inning. Tiger junior Reed Schaller pitched all seven innings, ultimately throwing 134 pitches in all. Head coach Rick Cosgray commented on Schaller’s night, saying that he really hung in there.

    “He was outstanding,” Cosgray said after the game. “He had great command [and] his velocity was good.

    “What I’m really pleased with was his composure. In a hot-contested game like that, he stayed within himself to be able to strike-out the number three and four hitters there in the seventh – those were two really big strikeouts.”

  • The Southmont Mounties defeated Sagamore Athletic Conference rival Western Boone Tuesday evening in baseball.

    Western Boone managed to get on the scoreboard before the Mounties, but the Mounties revolted in the third and fourth innings with three runs in each. South added one run in the fifth and seventh innings to win 8-4.

    Senior and lead-off hitter Mitch Dehne scored three of the eight runs. Dehne also had one hit and one RBI. Mason Mott also had three runs and one hit. Boone Welliever had three hits and five RBIs.

    Welliever brought the heat from the pitching mound with eight strikeouts.

    The Mounties will be back fielding grounders Wednesday against Seeger at 5 p.m.

  • Frankfort gets hot, beats North

    The North Montgomery softball team kept close with Sagamore Athletic Conference foe Frankfort at home on Tuesday, but the Hot Dogs got going late to win 17-3 in six innings.

    Frankfort put up three runs in the first two innings, but North responded with a pair in the home half of the second. Even as the Hot Dogs exploded for four runs in the third, the Chargers answered with one of their own.

    Frankfort put the game away with a run in the fourth, three in the fifth and six in the sixth.

    North had just five hits, with two of them coming from Cheyenne Warren. Kirsten Southwood had a triple and two RBIs and Ashlynn Voorhees drove in a run and scored one.

    North Montgomery and Frankfort meet again Thursday on Hot Dog turf. 

  • Lopez, Dogs handle Chargers

    LINDEN-The North Montgomery baseball team saw one of the Sagamore Athletic Conference’s premier pitches Tuesday when Leo Lopez and the Frankfort Hot Dogs visited town. Lopez got the best of the Chargers, fanning 10 in a 4-0 Frankfort win.

    North just got two hits off the funky-throwing right-hander. Those came from Baylee Adams and Riley Morehouse.

    The squads will meet again Thursday in Frankfort. 

  • After cancelling their second match scheduled for Wednesday evening due to the cold, windy weather, Frankfort brought a young but eager team to the Crawfordsville Country Club Thursday for a match against the Southmont Junior High Mounties.

    Austin Wente and Will Bradley continue to lead the Mounties shooting a 45 and 47 respectively. Jacob Shilling improved his score from Monday's match to a 56 and Brodie Mitchell was solid again at 58.  Trevor McKinney rounded out the SMJH scoring with a 60.

    Erin Williams won the girls side of the match shooting a 56 against Frankfort's Paige Terry's 64.

  • 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.”
