    If you went to school in Montgomery County from the 40s to consolidation in 1971, you would probably give about anything to sit in your old gym and listen to the school band play the school fight song.  For many of the county schools, the only time only time the fight song is heard  now is when the former school cheerleaders stand up in front on their respective alumni banquets and lead the former students in the school song.  Unfortunately, most of the school gymnasiums are gone; only Crawfordsville, Ladoga, and Waveland are still standing.  The Crawfordsville gym is a part of an ongoing renovation and may soon become apartments, the Ladoga gym  is still used by the Ladoga Elementary, and the Waveland gym is now a community center.

    As for the yearbooks and school newspapers, there is an incomplete collection at the Crawfordsville Library and North Montgomery and Southmont also has an incomplete collection at their respective libraries.  It was with this in mind that I decided that if we were not to lose these important memories, both tangible and intangible, completely, it was time to reach out to former students of the now defunct schools and try to get the school songs, names of newspapers and names of yearbooks so that we would have a record of the Golden Age of Education and Athletics in Montgomery County.  Sadly, this too is incomplete, but I hope to add to it as this material is disseminated.

    oth the Crawfordsville Athenians and the Southmont Mountie volleyball teams are off to good starts to their seasons.

    Both would be in action Thursday night as the Athenians would host Attica and the Mounties would host Cascade.

    The Athenians would end up coming with a clean sweep of Attica 25-14, 25-8, and 25-14 to improve to 7-4 on the season. Early on in the third set Attica would give the Athenians everything they could handle, matching the Athenians point for point and even holding a small lead. However, the Athenians were able to collect themselves and pull away to secure the win

    Pat Sullivan, entering his sixth season with the Wabash College basketball program, has been elevated to associate head coach beginning immediately.

    "I am extremely proud to have had Pat as my assistant for the past ten years," Wabash head basketball coach Kyle Brumett said. "Our success at both Defiance College and here at Wabash College has been very rewarding. We have had very good players, and more importantly, great young men. Coach 'Sully' has been an integral part in building these successful programs. He truly is the associate head coach and has his fingerprints on everything we do. As we prepare for what hopes to be a very exciting season in 2019-2020, I wanted him to be recognized for all of the great contributions that he is making to both Wabash basketball and to the College as a whole."

    Now that the New Orleans Pelicans have won the Zion Williamson lottery sweepstakes, NBA writers have begun revising their projected draft picks.
    In the next three weeks leading up to the June 20 draft, don’t be surprised if you see former Indiana guard Romeo Langford’s draft stock rise and fall like the sun. Opinions on him seem to change daily.

    Sam Vecenie of The Athletic sees Langford falling to Detroit at No. 15, citing anonymous NBA scouts noting that “Langford is far from a surefire lottery pick after his season at Indiana.” That’s because questions remain about his jump shot. Did his thumb injury cause Langford to shoot 27 percent from 3-point range for the Hoosiers?

  •  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."

    Senior quarterback Connor Rice threw for a career-high 307 yards and two touchdowns to lead Wa-bash to a 34-24 win over the College of Wooster. The Little Giants improved to 6-1 on a festive Family Day.
    Rice was laser-sharp in connecting on 22-of-27 passes and found seven different receivers. Sopho-more Oliver Page caught eight passes for 146 yards, while sophomore Ryan Thomas and senior Sammy Adams each caught first-half touchdown strikes.
    Coach Don Morel praised his senior captain for both his passing and his leadership.

    Wabash opens the final five games of the North Coast Athletic Conference portion of its football schedule Saturday afternoon against Division III's top wide receiver when it travels to play Kenyon College (3-3, 2-3 NCAC) at 1 p.m.
    Senior wideout Brian Hunca leads the nation with 986 receiving yards and has caught seven touchdown passes. A two-time All-NCAC selection, Hunca led the NCAC in receiving yards with 1,096. This year he's already closing in on 1,000 yards while no other pass catcher in the league has more than 495 yards through the midway point of the season.

  • Defense dominates as Wabash runs over Allegheny
    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.

    Connor Ludwig paced the Little Giants defense with two sacks and three tackles for loss as a part of his five tackle effort. 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
