  • Courts produce Charger champions
    Saturday, October 03, 2015 12:31 AM

    A windy sectional championship saw a county rival duking it out to see who would move onto regionals.


    North Montgomery took the first three matches for the win while Crawfordsville No. 1 and No. 2 singles made the final score 3-2. This makes it the first time in four years since North has won sectionals.

    First off the court. Sam Jackman.

    North’s No. 3 singles boosted some North morale after a quick 6-0, 6-2 win against C’ville’s Ryan Fry.

    “Sam jumped out way early and got going and just didn’t let up,” Coach Ric Walke said. “Getting the first point for us before anybody else got on the board, I think that was big.”

  • Chargers bid for SAC crown takes blow
    Saturday, October 03, 2015 12:30 AM

    LINDEN - Western Boone did what championship teams do. The Stars brought an unblemished Sagamore Athletic Conference record to North Montgomery Friday night and left a few hours later the same way. The 15th-ranked Class 3A Stars rode a strong start to a 28-14 victory and now sit all alone atop the SAC.

    With the win, Western Boone is 6-1 overall and a perfect 5-0 in the SAC. The Stars have already beaten defending state champ Tri-West and have only 1-6 Danville and 3-4 Lebanon left on the schedule. The Chargers are now tied for second in the SAC with Tri-West at 4-1. North travel to Frankfort next week and wraps up the year playing host to Tri-West. North must win out and hope for Western Boone to stumble in order to win the conference.

  • Tigers tame Athenians
    Saturday, October 03, 2015 12:25 AM

    LEBANON – Windy Mother Nature made sure Friday’s Lebanon homecoming was one to remember. The Tiger offense also made sure the homecoming crowd went home happy with a 51-0 win over Crawfordsville.

    The Tigers dominated in every facet of the game. They outgained the Athenians 366 to 93, and controlled the line of scrimmage on both sides of the football.

    “You can’t show up and make as many mental mistakes as we did,” said Athenian head coach Mike Hammons. “We dropped kickoffs, didn’t pick up our assignments on a punt and got it blocked twice.”

    The Athenians first drive stalled after converting a fourth and two.

  • “Tale of two halves”
    Saturday, October 03, 2015 12:23 AM

    Close first, runaway second.

    The Southmont Mounties stayed just ahead of the Bruins the entire first half until they weren’t able to finish their fourth drive. The Mounties could not hold with a scoreless second, ending 47-21.

    The first three drives ended with Senior Nathaniel Farabee touchdowns. The first drive was a good omen for the Mounties. A 73 yard kickoff return from Antonio Burks brought them into great positioning. Farabee ran the one play of the drive for 12 yards for his first.

    The Bruins came right back with a strong drive with some strong runs from Senior Wesley Cook who ran for 43 yards on the drive.

    This was how the first quarter played out. South drive, Farabee touchdown. Tri-West drive, Cook touchdown. South’s last drive was a long one but not a fruitful one. Mixed in were fake punts, personal fouls against the Bruins and a missed field goal.

  • County teams conquer
    Friday, October 02, 2015 4:41 PM

    The courts were full and balls were flying.

    The North Montgomery and Crawfordsville tennis teams faced sectional foes Rockville and Turkey Run in the second day of the tournament Thursday.

    The Chargers fought against the Rocks with the doubles and No. 3 singles wrapping things up after a 6-1, 6-1 win by Tyler Swick and Mitch Merica, a 6-1, 6-2 win by Jaxon Plant and Matt Jackman and a 6-0, 6-1 win by Sam Jackman.

    Devan Plant and Luke Weliever fought the night away going neck and neck with Rocks Bodin Becker and Clay Butler, respectively. Becker’s swings weren’t enough against Plant (6-3, 6-3), but Butler swung for the win (6-1, 6-2).

  • Stars shoot away from Mounties
    Friday, October 02, 2015 4:40 PM

    NEW MARKET – The Southmont boys’ soccer had their final tune-up before next week’s Crawfordsville sectional by hosting a potential sectional opponent and Sagamore Conference foe Western Boone.  

    The Stars put up goals early and hung on for the 6-3 win.

    Western Boone found the back of the net just 4:20 into the game as Dylan Steines scored on the assist from Jack Fortner. Fortner scored two minutes later on the assist from Daniel Collins for the quick 2-0 lead.

    They would extend their lead to 4-0 midway through the half on goals by Miles Clutter and Adam Glidewell.

    Hello Sports Fans.

    First off, all hail the king! North Montgomery defended its county champeenship in style by upending Crawfordsville on the Athenians home field. For the record, the Chargers scored 121 points while only giving up 26 against their two county rivals – a truly dominant year.

    And that brings us to this week’s showdown of North and Western Boone. But before we get to that, let’s talk about my favorite subject . . . me.

    Yes, it’s true that the ol’ Caldron had ANOTHER perfect week. Four games. Four predictions. Four correct. And let us not forget the scores. Yours truly told you that North would hold CHS to 21. CHS scored 20. I told you South would score four TDs in beating Danville, the Mighty Mounties scored five. And I told you the TW would beat Lebanon with an offensive output of 40. The Bruins scored 37. We all know though that you don’t read Bubbles for the scores and the predictions. Heck, any fool can do that – and as you know, several do. Nope, you read this for the witty repartee, the great writing, the humble approach . . . well, OK, maybe not the humble part. But you sure aren’t going to find witty and great writing anywhere else around here.

  • Stars fly in for North Homecoming
    Thursday, October 01, 2015 7:54 PM

    North Montgomery, coming off a 73-20 win over Crawfordsville, looks to continue their winning ways as they host the Stars of Western Boone at home on Friday at 7 pm. Both teams enter with records of 5-1 and are 4-0 in the Sagamore Conference.

    Coach Josh Thompson said practice all week has been geared toward one goal.

    “It has been great,” he stated. “Practices have been up tempo, and the boys have looked extremely focused.”

    Western Boone (5-1, 4-0 SAC) added another notch in the win column last week as they beat the Frankfort Hot Dogs 24-0. Senior quarterback Nathanial Bye led the Stars with two touchdowns and 186 yards passing.

    Coach Thompson had nothing but praise when asked about the Star’s quarterback.

  • South coming off big win
    Thursday, October 01, 2015 7:48 PM

    Last week was huge for Southmont football (2-4, 1-3 SAC).

    They made history by beating Danville for the first time on the Warriors’ home turf, 35-26. This was their second win on the season. They are going into this Friday with two wins against the Tri-West Bruins (3-3, 3-1 SAC).

    “I thought that we were able to run the football effectively.” Southmont coach Desson Hannum said. “We didn’t throw many times but when we did, we completed all of them and then we were able to get a few stops on defense, whether that be forcing them to punt or whether that be turning it over. Those things are all important to us and hopefully we can build off that going into this next weekend.”

    This Friday will see a lot of running between South’s Nathaniel Farabee and Tri-West’s Wes Cook. Cook has accumulated 695 yards already this season with 115 average per game. Jake Hill at quarterback can also be a threat, throwing for 1523 yards to various upperclassmen receivers.
