  •  Casteel celebrates D1 signing
    Tuesday, November 15, 2016 4:00 AM
    NEW MARKET – Southmont softball sensation Sydney Casteel had a celebration Monday in honor of signing her National Letter of Intent to play softball at Division 1 Louisiana Tech last week. 
    Casteel is an outfielder / first baseman that has lettered on the varsity at Southmont High School since her freshman year. She helped lead the Mounties to three straight county championships and a pair of sectional titles. In 2014 Casteel led the program to the regional and semi-state championship and the state title game (runner-up).
    "Sydney has such a strong left handed swing," said Louisiana Tech head coach Mark Montgomery in a release from the school. "She hits line drives with power. I look for her to compete in the outfield right away."

  • Bell falls from grasp
    Sunday, November 13, 2016 7:40 PM
    Wabash rallied from an early 14-0 deficit, tied the game at 17-all in the third quarter, and took a 34-30 lead with 2:06 to play. But DePauw stormed back in the final minute to claim a 37-34 win in the 123rd Monon Bell Classic.
    The win for the Tigers snapped a seven-game Wabash winning streak in the rivalry. The rivalry dates to 1890. Both teams finished 8-2 on the season.
    Senior quarterback Connor Rice, who threw for a career high 336 yards, hit Oliver Page for 28- and 20-yard touchdown passes in the second half. But the Tigers' quarterback Matt Hunt had the final say.
    Hunt, starting in his fourth Monon Bell Game, led his team 80 yards in less than 90 seconds, and hit his brother, Andy, on a 13-yard corner route for the go-ahead touchdown with 38 seconds remaining.

  •   Little Giants move into first place
    Monday, October 31, 2016 4:00 AM
    The Wabash College defense turned in its second shutout of the season in a 28-0 win at Ohio Wesleyan Saturday afternoon.
    The Little Giants limited OWU to 285 yards of total offense one week after the Bishops posted 568 yards in a win at DePauw. The Wabash offense scored four passing touchdowns by completing and efficient 12-of-17 passes for 137 yards.
    "Kudos to our defense for getting the shutout today," Wabash head coach Don Morel said. "That just doesn't happen very often in college football, and especially not against a great offensive team like Ohio Wesleyan."

    Sunday, September 20, 2015 10:37 PM

    Wabash recorded six sacks and held Allegheny to 56 yards of total offense in a 54-0 road victory for the Little Giants Saturday. Wabash ran for seven touchdowns in the shutout.

    The ninth-ranked Little Giants ran for 290 yards and threw for 239 in the lopsided North Coast Athletic Conference opener.

AJ Clark led the team with eight stops, including two tackles for losses totaling four yards. Wabash held the Gators (0-3, 0-2 NCAC) to minus-36 yards rushing on 25 carries.

    Allegheny completed 12-of-26 pass attempts for the majority of their yards, but also tossed three interceptions. CJ McMann returned the last pick 56 yards to set up a one-yard Matt Gibson touchdown. Delon Pettiford stepped in front of a Logan Lee pass in the second quarter that Michael Putko converted into a score on a six-yard run. Eddie Cmehil hauled in a pass tipped by Austin Brown for the third pick

    Freshman Nikola Kajmakoski tallied a pair of goals Friday night to give Wabash soccer a 2-0 victory at Hanover College.

    The Little Giants improve to 7-0 with the victory. Last season Wabash played 12 consecutive games without suffering a loss, but opened the season with five consecutive victories before notching a pair of ties. This year's Wabash team set a new school record with its seventh straight win to open the season and are two victories shy of tying the 1986 team's record of nine consecutive victories in a season.

    Kajmakoski scored his second goal of the season in the 13th minute. Mike Gore slipped a pass to the rookie, who beat the Hanover (2-4) goalkeeper on a one-on-one attempt. A foul by the host Panthers in the 31st minute put Kajmakoski over the ball with a direct free kick, which he converted for the insurance goal.

    Wabash placed five runners in the top-14 spots and six in the top-20 to capture the Indiana Little State men's cross country title for the third straight season.

    The Red Pack scored 44 points to edge sixth-ranked Division II's University of Southern Indiana by a single point. The Little Giants entered the meet ranked 12th nationally and number one in the Great Lakes Region in the first official DIII US Track and Field and Cross Country Coaches Association poll.

    Southern Indiana captured first, third, and fifth places but could not place its fourth runner ahead of the pack of five Little Giants. Fabian House led the way for Wabash, crossing the line in fourth place with a time of 26:13.6. Adam Togami finished seventh with a time of 26:26.7 over the 8,000-meter loop at the LaVern Gibson Cross Country course in Terre Haute, Indiana. Mason McKinney finished eight seconds behind Togami in eighth place (26:34.5).
