  • Knights overrun Athenians

    The Athenians went neck-and-neck with the visiting Lafayette Central Catholic Knights only to fall behind in the last minute of play. The Knights stole the win 69-54.

    The fourth quarter comeback by Athenian Konner Smith helped Crawfordsville rally to a one-point lead with 1:39 to go. Smith scored seven for C’ville to put them ahead 59-58 but a Crawfordsville turnover and two strong Knight drives sealed the deal.

    “I’m proud of our effort,” Athenian coach David Pierce said. “We gave ourselves a chance. We played hard but we beat ourselves.”

  • County wrestlers head to New Castle

    Three made it last year. Who will survive this year?

    Out of 13 county wrestlers, the coaches always hope to have more advance to State than the previous year.

    North sent the most to Semi-State of the County this year and the most Charger coach Maurice Swain has ever sent. Seven, compared to five last year, made it through and only one is a senior.

  • Ward advances to State finals
    Athenian Britney Ward dove to 12th place in Tuesday’s diving Regionals in Plainfield, Ind. This put her just above the cut to head to the State finals this weekend.
  • Role models

    As a sports editor, I feel as if it is my duty to weigh in on the Cam Newton show which took place Sunday. Unfortunately, my Panthers lost the game but something else was lost on that day as well. Many people’s respect for the MVP coming into the game diminished greatly throughout the night.

    It wasn’t just the post-game interview but all the factors combined that did it for me. The first sign for me was him not going all out for the fumble. Instead, he steps aside. When has stepping aside gotten football players anywhere? He needs to fight like hell to keep the possession.
