  • Jackman on the mend

  • Athenian rally falls short against Stars

    Western Boone used two first-half runs and converted from the line in the fourth quarter, to earn a 52-39 Sagamore Conference victory over Crawfordsville Thursday evening.

    The Athenians led 4-0 to start the game but the Stars went on a 13-0 run to take a 13-4 lead early in the second. They went on a 10-0 run later in the quarter to lead, 27-16, at half.

    “Our guys didn’t come ready to play,” Athenian coach David Pierce said. “We started the game with two unforced turnovers and we lost our fire from there.”

  • Chargers win fourth in a row

    LINDEN – The North Montgomery Chargers came out hot and stayed hot against the Benton Central Bison Thursday. Six straight turnovers for the Bison to start the game did not bode well for them as they dropped 27-15 after the first on their way to an 81-54 loss.

    “Part of the game plan was to get after it and that’s what we did,” Charger coach Joel Grindle said.

    Devon Zachary drained the first seven points to start North’s 11-0 run in the first.

  • LIZTON – A dismal 16-2 start, spurred by six first quarter turnovers, gave Tri-West the momentum it needed to crush conference cellar-dweller Southmont. 71-50 at Tri-West Thursday night.
