All-County girls' hoops
Friday, March 13, 2015 2:55 PM
As long as basketball exists in Indiana, people will always contemplate their area's ultimate team. This year the girls' all-county teams, as voted on by the Montgomery County and staff of The Paper, consist of players from each of the three schools.
Lacey Garrett, Erika Brooks and Paige Schueren took three of the top five spots in the voting for Crawfordsville. Garrett averaged 18.7 points per game and 5.4 rebounds per game. Brooks averaged 9.6 points per game, and Schueren came in just under that mark as she averaged 9.4 points per game.
Southmont's Aarika McKinsey and North Montgomery's Cheyenne Warren round off the coveted first-team.
Southmont's Reagan Case, Brittany Barrett and Kasey Burton, earned spots on the second All-County team. North's Becca Adams narrowly missed a first-team placement, giving her the number six spot in voting overall. Crawfordsville's Kimberly Hampton rounded out the lineup for the second team.
Crawfordsville finished the 2014-2015 season with a 12-11 (2-5 SAC) record. North Montgomery went 4-18 (0-7 SAC) and Southmont finished 4-18 (1-6 SAC).

Stars end season for Chargers
Friday, February 13, 2015 6:26 PM
LEBANON - North Montgomery's game plan Friday evening was to limit turnovers and stop Western Boone's scoring runs. The game couldn't have started any worse for the Chargers as they committed 10 first quarter turnovers, and the Stars opened up a 12-0 advantage to start the game. A deficit they could never overcome, losing to Western Boone 54-33.
"Throughout the year, we've had a hard time coming back against big runs like that," said Charger coach Ryan Nuppnau. "We didn't come out with the energy and excitement that we had hoped we would with it being tourney time."
New season for North

LEBANON -- It's cliché, but North Montgomery enters Friday's second game of the Lebanon Sectional with a 0-0 record. They'll take their fresh start, and look to move to 1-0, when they face Sagamore Conference rival Western Boone.
The Chargers advanced to the Semifinals by drawing the bye, where the Stars had to come from behind Tuesday evening to beat a pesky Frankfort squad, 63-52.
"We played well against Western Boone the first time we played them (a 47-34 loss on Jan. 30)," said Charger mentor Ryan Nuppnau. "There were a couple stretches where we fell apart and allowed them to extend the lead.
"Other than that, we played even with them for most of the game," he continued. "Come Friday, it will be a matter of not giving up big runs."

Mounties get redemption
Monday, January 26, 2015 6:21 PM
LINDEN - The last four days have been brutal for the Southmont Lady Mounties basketball team. On Thursday, the Mounties shot 8-of-29 from the free throw line in a 23-point loss to Sagamore Athletic Conference opponent Frankfort. Saturday they traveled to Crawfordsville where they outshot and outrebounded the Lady Athenians, and still ended up on the wrong side of the scoreboard, 53-40.
Monday the Mounties got redemption.
They shot 16-of-27 from the charity stripe to avenge an earlier loss and beat North Montgomery with a fourth-quarter rally, 34-29.
Chargers can't cage No. 5 Tigers
Friday, January 23, 2015 7:10 PM
LINDEN - The North Montgomery girls' basketball team had the opportunity to see one of the state's best Class 3A schools on Friday night. The Chargers played host to Sagamore Athletic Conference rival and Class 3A No. 5 Lebanon. The Tigers won the game 76-26.
Lebanon (16-2) has not lost to a school of equal or smaller size all year. Their only blemishes belong to Class 4A No. 4 Homestead and Class 4A No. 5 Noblesville.
It was clear why eyes of the state are on the Boone County power. They ran out to an 18-4 lead in the first quarter and never looked back. The Chargers did not score in the first three minutes of any quarter.
Kristen Spolyar, a junior and a Butler recruit, powered the offense with layup after layup on her way to 34 points. The Chargers got nine points from Cheyenne Warren and eight from Becca Adams.
Second half dooms North
Friday, January 16, 2015 7:30 PM
DANVILLE -- The North Montgomery Lady Chargers were looking to pick up their first Sagamore Conference victory, as they made the trip to Danville Friday evening. After a strong showing by the visitors in the first half, it was the Warriors who prevailed pulling away in the second, 59-27.
The Chargers played great defense in the first quarter limiting the Warrior offense to just six points, but could only must four of their own, trailing 6-4 after one.
North tied the game at six at the 7:40 mark of the second quarter, on a basket by Zoey McCormick. However, the Lady Chargers would go the next five minutes without a basket, and Danville was able to extend their lead to 8.
They would outscore North 16-8 in the quarter and take a 22-12 lead into the break.
North girls looking to notch victory
Wednesday, January 14, 2015 5:31 PM
DANVILLE - North Montgomery's girls' basketball team has been playing well since mid-December. They may not have the record to show it, but vast improvements have been made since the beginning of the season. The Chargers will get an opportunity to showcase their improvement, and hopefully notch another win, when they travel to Danville Friday for a Sagamore Athletic Conference affair.
The Chargers (3-11) most recently fell victim to a big comeback in a loss to Harrison Tuesday.
Harrison rallies to beat Chargers
Tuesday, January 13, 2015 6:32 PM
LINDEN- The Lady Chargers could not have asked for a better start to a basketball game than they had on Tuesday evening. The Chargers jumped out to an early lead and shut out the Harrison Lady Raiders through a quarter and a half. The Raiders did not move the scoreboard until 3:50 left in the second quarter. North held a 19-2 lead at that point. Stingy defense and costly turnovers led to the fast start by North Montgomery (3-11).
That is when the lady Raiders turned up their own defense, deploying a full court pressure that the Chargers had trouble beating. By the time the buzzer sounded at the half, the Raiders had cut the deficit to 21-16.

Chargers second at holiday invite
Tuesday, December 30, 2014 7:15 PM
INDIANAPOLIS -- The North Montgomery girls finished second at the Scott Bostick Memorial Tournament at Covenant Christian High School. The Chargers opened the day with a win over previously undefeated Horizon Christian, 45-27. Covenant Christian defeated Indianapolis Tindley in the morning session and defeated the Chargers 56-22 to win the tournament.
"The girls played pretty well in the first game," North Montgomery head coach Ryan Nuppnau said. "(Horizon Christian) has a tough point guard and she was able to get her points but we were able to shut down the rest of the team. Our girls moved the ball around and played well the first game."
The Chargers came out quickly to blast ahead of Horizon Christian and lead 24-12 at halftime. They extended the lead to 40-18 after three and held off a short rally from the Lions.
Becca Adams led North Montgomery with nine points, 11 rebounds and five steals.
