  • Rough regional road
    Tuesday, October 13, 2015 10:39 PM

    The Crawfordsville boys’ soccer team is off to the races. They play their first regional game against Muncie Burris in their second year at regionals in a row.

    Muncie Burris has not appeared in a regionals game in a while but will make a big splash this year. They are coming in with 65 total goals and only 17 goals against.

    They are 10-5-2 coming into Thursday and Athenian coach Marcus Hale said they will have their hands full.

    “Muncie Burris will be a tough match, similar to the match against Western Boone,” Hale stated.

  • Headed to regionals 26-1

    Crawfordsville’s Dane Baldwin has progressed through the state tournament before, but never this far.

    In his freshman year, Baldwin advanced with his team only to be stopped by Terre Haute South in the regional semi-finals.

    The next year was a déjà vu of his first year with Terre Haute South’s Nathan Bogle and the team beating the Athenians 5-0.

    Last year went a little differently with Crawfordsville losing to Terre Haute North 3-2 but Baldwin advanced to face senior Bogle yet again. Baldwin could not pull through for a third time but had another year to go.

  • Athenian comeback win
    Monday, October 12, 2015 10:04 PM

    Down 1-0 going into the second half. The Athenians had their hands full with the Western Boone Stars during the sectional championships.

    The Stars’ strong attacks turned into frantic defense as Crawfordsville came back with two goals in the second half for a 2-1 win to advance to regionals.

    The game started out strong for Western Boone gaining possessions and scoring a goal seven minutes in. Star Eli Westmoreland punted a corner kick into the middle. Crawfordsville could not get a touch and Star Jack Fortner shot it to the back of the net.

    Athenian Wilfredo Cifuentes had a few runs on goal but could not get it past Patrick Bagwell.

  • Running to regionals
    Monday, October 12, 2015 10:00 PM

    Three teams, three boys and two girls from Montgomery County advanced from sectionals to regionals on Saturday.

    The runners saw a little better weather out on the course compared to last week’s conference race. More sunshine and less hills brought the boys and girls through sectionals with the North girls’, Crawfordsville boys’, and Southmont boys’ teams advancing. North’s Brandon Alenduff, Michael Munro, and Shane Alenduff advanced as well as C’ville’s Maddy Hurt and South’s Kelsey Dugger.

    South’s Brooks Long placed first in the boys’ race. Long has now won county, conference, and sectionals as he heads to regionals with his team. He ran a 16:32 which was 24 seconds faster than his conference race.

    “I just think he was mentally all-in in this race,” Mountie coach Bailey Davis said. “The competition was really good for him.”

  • Little Giants' complete effort downs Oberlin
    Monday, October 12, 2015 9:59 PM

    OBERLIN, OH. – The Little Giants had big contributions from offense, defense, and special teams Saturday rolling past Oberlin, 55-18.

    Wabash scored five touchdowns on offense, one defensive score, a punt return from the special teams and two Andrew Tutsie field goals. The Little Giants flexed their muscles on the line and on the ground with 291 rushing yards.

    Senior back Mason Zurek had a monster of a day with 208 yards of total offense. He rushed for 164 on 16 carries and added 44 more on a big first quarter catch. One of the biggest highlights of the day was Zurek's third-quarter, 76-yard scoring run.

    "He's a big guy, he has speed as you saw," Coach Erik Raeburn said. "He can break one and go the distance. He's good between the tackles. We also feel like he's a good blocker. We feel like he is going to catch it out of the backfield if we throw it anywhere near him. He's the complete guy with a ton of experience to go with all of that talent. Any time he touches it we feel like we have a chance for some good things to happen."
