    With the two most powerful SAC contenders languishing in their stardust, all #12 Western Boone has to do to capture the Sagamore Athletic Conference football title is to take care of busi­ness. The Stars finish the regular season with Danville (1-6, SAC 0-5) and Lebanon (1-6, SAC 1-4).

    First on the time card is Danville. However, the Warriors are coming off an impressive first time victory. The Warriors hope Western Boone (6-1, SAC 5-0) is in the stratosphere, after the Stars riveting triumph of North Montgomery.

    Kaleb McCloskey’s 11 TD grabs pace the SAC. Dan­ville’s Christian Schabel erupted for 229 rushing yards last week.

    He has done it again.

    Crawfordsville’s Dane Baldwin tacked on his 26th win of the season, sealing the sectional championship. This is Baldwin’s first time winning the individual sectionals.

    Baldwin was up against Seeger’s Borden Kennedy for the championship Thursday.

    Each came out winning their service games. Then, Baldwin went up 6-1 in the first game.

  • Mounties drop 1-4
    Thursday, October 08, 2015 11:17 PM

    South had their final game of the season Thursday against the Western Boone Stars.

    After a close first half, the Stars shot away winning 4-1.

    Western Boone went up at 27 minutes with a header to the left side. This came after a cornerkick scramble ending in a goal.

    South’s Emily White responded after another scramble on the opposite field with Delaney Huff and Emily White creeping closer to the goal.

    “Webo made a mistake and we were able to capitalize on it cause we got forward,” Mountie coach Julia Pierce said.

  • Mounties face running powerhouse
    Thursday, October 08, 2015 11:15 PM

    The Southmont Mounties (2-5, 1-4 SAC) are coming off a good game against Tri-West and looking to play a great game against Lebanon (1-6, 1-4 SAC).

    “We have a goal to play 48 full minutes of football,” Mountie coach Desson Hannum said. “We have to make sure we are paying attention to every detail.”

    The Mounties dropped a 41-21 game against the Bruins who have a similar spread offense to the Tigers.

    “They’re going to spread you out and we’ve got to be able to tackle and make sure we are doing absolutely everything to stop their pass play.”

  • North looks to bounce back
    Thursday, October 08, 2015 11:14 PM

    LINDEN- After coming off a heartbreaking loss against the Western Boone Stars last week, the North Montgomery Chargers (5-2, 4-1 SAC) look to continue their successful season this week as they take on Frankfort (3-4, 1-4 SAC) at home on Friday.

    With a win, the Chargers will solidify their spot among one of the top teams in the Sagamore Conference. 

    North Montgomery is coming off of a 28-14 loss to the Western Boone Stars. The Chargers racked up 213 yards passing against the Stars and only 84 on the ground. Senior Baylee Adams completed 18 passes on 31 attempts for a total of 213 yards. The Chargers struggled with timely penalties which cost them 51 yards.

    “Practice has been great this week,” Charger coach Josh Thompson said. “We have been focusing on our adjustments for Frankfort and improving as a team." 

  • Athenians look to contain Bruins
    Thursday, October 08, 2015 11:12 PM

    Crawfordsville travels to Tri-West Friday evening looking to put a damper on the Bruins final home game and their senior night festivities.

    Tri-West enters at 4-3 overall and 4-1 in the Sagamore Conference. They average nearly 40 points-per-game and allow just under 27. Their two non-conference losses have come against Class 2A top-ranked Evansville Mater Dei, by a touchdown, 35-28, and to Class 3A No. 2, West Lafayette, in their first game of the season.

    The Bruins have a wealth of skill players that can hurt you both on the ground and through the air.

    “Tri-West is a great offensive team,” said Athenian head coach Mike Hammons. “They are very talented at their skilled positions. Wide receiver, Colton Jobe, quarterback, Jake Hill, and 2014 All-State running back, Wesley Cook, just to name a few, so we’ll have to be sound across the board and tackle well in space.”

    Hello Sports Fans.

    What a topsy-turvy year it’s been. Sure, I’ll be the first one to admit that predicting North Montgomery beating Western Boone was off base – but hey, that’s a game between two state-ranked, quality teams. Anyone could win that one. Lebanon over Crawfordsville and Tri-West over South sure weren’t tough picks, and I, of course, nailed those. But who saw winless Dannyville absolutely grilling the Hot Dogs? Apparently not me, that’s for sure.

    What the heck, life goes on – and for some schools that means getting ready for basketball season.

    North Montgomery at Frankfort

    It’s probably not a great time to be a Hot Dog. The Chargin’ Chargers fell out of the state rankings and no longer control their own Sagamore Athletic Conference fate. In fact, in order for North to win the SAC title outright, it must win tonight, beat Tri-West next week and hope Western Boone stumbles against Danville and next week against Boone County rival Lebanon.

    The Athenians dropped their Thursday match against Covington 21-25, 18-25, 19-25.

    It was a close fight the entire way with the Athenians racking up 24 kills and 22 assists.

    Kim Hampton had 13 kills, Hannah Hungerford 5, Madison Wendelin and Emily White 3.

    Caroline Schueren pulled through 15 assists.

  • Athenians top Mounties
    Wednesday, October 07, 2015 11:02 PM

    Crawfordsville and Southmont battled for the second time this season, this time with an opportunity to advance to the Sectional Championship on Saturday.

    After handing the Mounties a 6-1 loss back on August 27, the Mounties were looking for a little redemption Wednesday evening.

    The Athenians made a rebound goal by Isaac Lopez at the 16:45 mark of the first half stand, as they beat the Mounties 1-0.

    “It was a tough hard fought match,” said Athenian head coach Marcus Hale. “When you play a county school, everybody knows everybody. So, they’re always going to be tough.”

  • Stars fly to sectional championship
    Wednesday, October 07, 2015 11:00 PM

    North Montgomery entered Wednesday’s second game of the Crawfordsville sectional looking to avenge an earlier loss to Sagamore Conference rival Western Boone. Despite a quick start by the Chargers, that saw them put two shots on goal in the first 2:30 of the match, the Stars used their speed, and aggressiveness, to pull away from the Chargers 4-0.

    The Stars first goal came at the 6:32 mark of the first half on a goal by Jack Fortner. Daniel Collins found the back of the 1:22 later to give Western Boone a 2-0 half time lead.

    The two were back at it again in the second half. Fortner put a shot home with 33:10 remaining on a free kick to take a 3-0 advantage, and Collins scored at the 24:45 mark for the final tally.
