    Heather Miller resigned as head coach of South’s volleyball team on Wednesday.

    “She resigned due to health issues,” athletic director Aaron Charles said. “We completely understand and thank her for the time she was here and definitely want to make sure her health is the number one most important thing.”

    Kristen Charles started as interim coach on Thursday with the Mounties against Covington. Charles coached some JV and varsity at Clinton Central. She will be joining Tim Hutson, the assistant coach, for the rest of the season.

    “Hopefully we can make the transition pretty smooth and benefit the girls,” Aaron Charles said.

    LINDEN - The Lady Chargers hosted Sagamore Conference foe Danville Thursday evening looking to start their Conference season off on the right foot. However, the Warriors proved too much, leaving Charger gym with a 25-11, 25-19, 25-13 win.

  • Blue overtakes red 6-1
    Thursday, August 27, 2015 10:54 PM

    Blue took on red Thursday in the first soccer county match-up of the season. The stakes and energy were high as the rivals faced off. Spatterings of commands flew through the air, “Move!” “Middle!”, “Behind you!” The boys dove into an intense match with C’ville coming out on top 6-1.

    The Athenians took off from the get go. Wilfredo Cifuentes rocked one in early to lay the base for the game. Kalidou Diaw had a few nice runs on goal with a bicycle kick mixed in until he followed up with a second goal in the last few minutes of the first half.

    C’ville switched to more of a defensive game in the last eight minutes but Diaw turned it around with his goal at 3:30.

    Hello Sports Fans.

    I would like to tell you that like our three MCschools, C’ville, North and South, I started out sizzling hot – nailed all three games and then followed up with perfection in the SAC.

    Actually, I’d love to tell you that.


    Unlike the boys in blue, orange and red, I stunk. For the week, I went with a mediocre, paltry, lowly, second-rate, run-of-the-mill, measly and miserable 4-4 record. I hate to say it, but there are coins out there that do better just getting flipped.

    And South? Oh boy, South! Did I really say they were going to lose by a hundred or something? I did indeed. You read it here that they were going to get whooped up on. Boy did those Mounties make me eat my words.

    You know what? Good for them. It’s a great thing to have a little attitude, a bit of a swagger. Show me now that you can do it two weeks in a row.

    And speaking of two weeks in a row. I read where Lori Poteet, photographer extraordinaire, said that all three schools winning their opener had not happened since 1994. Wonder when the last time all three started out 2-0?

    How does the Wabash College soccer team improve on a record-setting 2014 season? By continuing to work on fundamentals, execution, and playing together as a team in 2015.

    The Little Giants set a new record for victories in a season with a 13-3-3 mark last year, including wins over a pair of nationally ranked opponents. Wabash set another record by playing 12 consecutive matches without a loss to open the season before dropping a 2-0 decision to national semifinalist Ohio Wesleyan. The Little Giants completed the North Coast Athletic Conference portion of the schedule with a record of 6-2-1 to place third in the standings and earn the team's first berth in the league tournament.

    The Southmont Mounties set their focus on a non-conference clash against North Putnam this week after coming off a close victory against Fountain Central.  Coach Hannum looks to keep his teams momentum going.

    “After last weeks’ close win, this gives us a huge boost to look forward and focus on the upcoming week to get another win,” Hannum said.

    One thing the Mounties look to do is keep the run game going after rushing for 317 yards on Friday. There were seniors that stood out for the run game both rushing for over 100 yards. Zach Worm rushed for 107 yards on 20 carries while Nathaniel Farabee rushing 26 times for 146 yards.

    Sending kids to college can be daunting.

    I just moved away from Butler, ironically, while all of the little freshmen were moving in. It got me thinking back to when I moved in. I had no idea what to expect. I also thought about the kids I have talked to from Montgomery County who are heading off to college soon. I have been lucky enough to talk to some athletes like Hannah Whicker, Grant Gaylor, and Michael Minks (Crawfordsville graduates) who are heading to their different colleges to play their respective sports. What struck me the most while talking to them was their excitement for a new chapter in their lives. It can be scary to leave friends and family behind, but the opportunities, especially in our American culture, are endless.
