  • 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."

    Wabash scored 45 top-five finishes Saturday in its opening swimming and diving meet of the season to defeat Albion College 163-137 at the Class of 1950 Natatorium.

    The Little Giants won six individual races in addition to placing first in the final relay event of the afternoon

    "We won the meet with depth which is a nice little cog for our team moving forward in the season," Wabash head coach Brent Noble said. "We knew we had our returning national qualifiers but we lost a lot of depth from last year. We graduated some really sold swimmers who had been next guys in line for us. We had some freshman step up in their first collegiate meet, but we also had sophomores and juniors step up and fill some roles in ways they hadn't done in the past."

  • Jennings' shutout leads to 1-0 win
    Monday, October 12, 2015 9:53 PM

    Wabash goalkeeper Dayton Jennings recorded his sixth shutout of the season, including a save on a penalty kick in a 1-0 win by the Little Giant soccer team over Oberlin.

    Jennings has earned 16 shutouts in his career, placing him second behind all-time Wabash leader Tony Beuke with 16-1/2 shutouts from 1990-1993.  

    Adam Antalis provided the lone scoring shot, collecting a rebound on an initial shot by Nikola Kajmakoski that hit the post.

    Wabash focused on defense against the Yeomen (7-4-1, 1-2 NCAC) in the first half, holding Oberlin scoreless on nine total shots with four saves by Jennings, including one on a penalty kick in the first period. The Little Giants managed two shots on goal in the opening period.

    The Athenians saw SAC action on Monday as they faced the Tri-West Bruins.

    The Athenians rallied a 25-22 win in the first set. But the Bruins fought back hard winning the second set 25-23, third set 25-15. The Athenians took the fourth 25-18 while the final fifth saw a Bruin victory 15-11.

    Kimberly Hampton found 14 kills and 12 digs. Hannah Hungerford rallied eight kills, five digs, and 10 aces.

    “The girls played really well, but we got a bad rotation in the end of the fifth game that we couldn’t get out of,” Coach Kelly Johnson commented. “They had all of the really good players at the front, but I was really proud of how our girls played.”

  • Cahill with the kill
    Monday, October 12, 2015 9:50 PM

    Carli Cahill and the Chargers went 2-1 on Saturday at the North Invite. The Chargers won against Chesterton, 2-0 lost to Shelbyville 2-0, and defeated North Knox 2-0. Cahill had nine kills total on the day. 

  • Bruins, Warriors advance harriers to Regionals
    Monday, October 12, 2015 9:49 PM


    Individual star runners ran true to form at the front of the field, but team perfor­mance helped two SAC schools advance runners to next week’s Regionals.

    Despite not having their top runner, Danville’s Boys XC team bunched their times, thereby grabbing a fifth place 125 score –– the last slot for teams advancing to the Regionals at Ben Davis.

    Avon (30) won the Boys Sectional by placing five runners in the top ten. Brownsburg’s Hari Sathyamurthy, whose career sparkles with dominant performances, won the meet posting a 16:49.53. He was dogged all race by Decatur Central’s Kyle Gross, who finished 10 seconds back.

    “We actually were missing both of our top runners,” indicated Danville’s head coach Ben Bertoli, noting that anchors Daniel Gerber and Jenna Cower did not compete. “Daniel is actually visiting his home country in Ethiopia.”
