    OK, some positive news.
    And this should put a little extra spring in the steps of Indiana high school athletes this summer.
    The IHSAA issued a statement this week that it plans to waive the rule for the annual moratorium week.
    It was scheduled for June 29-July 5, 2020.
    But, at this point, all high school-sponsored activities can now resume on July 1.

    The Indiana High School Athletic Association staunchly supports our Governor, our State Commissioner of Health and our State Superintendent of Public Instruction in their herculean efforts during the COVID-19 pandemic. We are extremely fortunate in Indiana to have these exemplary leaders providing guidance and care to all Hoosiers.
    With the announcement today of the closure of K-12 schools throughout Indiana for the remainder of the school year, the IHSAA announces the cancellation of all spring sports tournament series events for the 2019-20 school year.

    GREENCASTLE – There were tears shed Saturday night, starting with the final seconds of North Montgomery’s 59-47 basketball loss to Danville in the championship game of the Class 3A Greencastle Sectional.
    Sure, there were tears of regret having come so close to knocking off the heavily favored Warriors. But they were also tears that come from a passion for the game, something that maybe a few past Chargers teams lacked.
    “I saw a bunch of guys with heart, the way a Charger should play,” North Montgomery coach Chad Arnold said.

    GREENCASTLE – The road to the Class 3A Greencastle Sectional championship game seemed to be a smooth ride for the North Montgomery basketball team halfway through Friday night’s semifinal against Frankfort. 
    Thanks to an 11-4 run to start the second quarter and a 3-pointer just before the buzzer from Jaron Bradford, the Chargers went to the locker room with a 28-15 lead.
    North Montgomery needed every point of that advantage to hold off a frantic Frankfort comeback and claim a 49-46 victory.
    “Any time you get a win in the tournament, it’s tough,” North Montgomery coach Chad Arnold said after watching the Hot Dogs close within 45-44 with 3:10 remaining.

    Too tall. Too quick. Too smart. Too poised, and too often. The No. 2 ranked Warriors advanced here Friday night to the Sectional 25 final game, defeating the Athenians 84-62.
    But don’t let the final score mislead you. The Athenians didn’t wilt under the bright spotlight shone on the Warriors, who are an obvious state championship contender.
    “On the whole, I was pleased with our effort,” said head coach David Pierce.

  • New Generation Wrestling resumes August 24
    Friday, August 23, 2019 12:22 AM
    The Maniac has been here and there lately, teasing a sports entertainment return to Crawfordsville, and August 24, at the Montgomery County Fairgrounds, 400 Park Avenue, the wait is over. Sandwiched between comedy performances in June at The Barefoot Burger and Francis & Mount right here in town, the wrestler ended his in-ring drought by appearing at Mad Hatter Wrestling’s debut event in Monticello. Following an unfortunate loss involving a foreign object, Delphi’s taunts on a now-viral Facebook video broadcast of ‘Call It a Hunch’ lead to NGW signing The Maniac vs. Delphi for their Saturday show.

    The show will also include a singles match between Parker Davis and Drex Odell as well as a tag team bout between Jeremy Hadley & Jamie Crisis vs. the returning Jay Maddix & Nate Mathews. For one night only, the 6’9” Buck Boulder will be with the company. Also scheduled to be in action are Jason Levi, TK Zero, Bentley Alexander Dawson, Chris Gordon, Buck Sexton, and tag champs High Society.

  • Scott to represent Chargers on Team USA
    Wednesday, June 12, 2019 3:53 PM

    Sophomore Olivia Scott will have the opportunity this summer to represent North Montgomery as a member of “America’s team”. Scott has been invited to be part of the team that will travel to the Dominican Republic this summer to do mission work and play in six different softball games.

    “We’re really proud of her,” said Mom Valerie Scott. “She will get the opportunity to see a whole new world and get to experience things that she doesn’t get to experience here in the United States. And having that USA logo across her chest, while wearing the red, white, and blue means a lot to us, and I know it will mean a lot to her.”

    The team will spend a week in the country and the trip will include a snorkeling excursion, visiting different waterfalls, getting to play against, and mix and mingle with other international teams.

    Matt Merica announced late Monday evening that he would be stepping down as the baseball coach at North Montgomery. Merica will continue to serve as athletic director and head the search for a replacement.

    “I’ve decided to step away from coaching after five years to spend more time with my family,” Merica said. “I have three kids, and it’s important to spend time with them.”

    The American Legion Bryon Cox Post 72 baseball team got their season going last night as they played Franklin at North Montgomery. The team was scheduled to start the season this past Sunday in a double header against Danville, but the games cancelled due to rain. The team is looking to improve off an 11-12 record from last season.

    Head Coach Kyle Proctor says that on paper, this could be one of the best teams they’ve had in a long time.

    “We have a great mix of experience and youth on our team this season,” Proctor said. “We have several pitchers who pitched a lot of quality innings for us last season, so that’s something that we’re really excited about. We’re just ready to go out there and see what we’ve got.”

    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?

    West Lafayette – Crawfordsville’s own Trent Johnson is making a name for himself at the collegiate level. Johnson just finished his second season at Purdue and he is quickly becoming a force on the mound just like he was during his time at Crawfordsville. 

    The former Athenian spoke about what it’s been like to pitch for the Boilermakers. 

    “It’s been an awesome experience,” Johnson said. “I’ve always wanted to play baseball at one of the highest levels and pitching here at Purdue in a really tough conference like the Big Ten has allowed me to do that, and I’m just enjoying the ride.”

    Make plans this summer to register for Kyle Brumett’s basketball camp, taking place at Wabash College from June 17-20. Any boy or girl in grades 2-8 is eligible. The four-day camp will consist of individual coaching from current college coaches, players and local high school coaches. Some fundamentals that will be taught include shooting, offensive moves, ball handling, rebounding, defense, and footwork.
