  • A day in the life . . .

    Baseball has always been one of my favorite sports.

    Our county teams just keep getting more fun to watch, as they keep getting better and better.

  • Kids say the darndest things

    I hope everyone had a nice relaxing spring break.

    Many ask if I enjoy the time off to rest. I’m actually one of those strange people that just don’t relax well. So instead of spending time sleeping in and relaxing, I headed to Disney World for spring break.

  • Well, March Madness is living up to the hype this year. So far with all the upsets, I’m pretty happy with my bracket. I have 11 of the 16 teams still alive in my bracket right now. Most importantly Indiana beat Kentucky so I’m a pretty happy camper.

  • Touch of Madness
    As spring sports begin practice and conditioning for the upcoming season, most of us sports-minded people are focused on March Madness.

  • While I hate to see our County teams lose in Sectionals, as each season ends a new one begins so on to spring sports we go. In fact, basketball season officially ended Friday night and Track season starts today.

    That’s right, indoor track starts tonight at Wabash. Local schools will have athletes competing tonight in the Little Giant-Charger Classic and again on Friday at Wabash for the Sagamore indoor meet. These meet are qualifiers for the State indoor meet.

  • Phew, I’m still tired from the plethora big sporting events this past weekend. I started my day at North Montgomery for regional wrestling. Once again, the County proved that MoCo is definitely big into wrestling, sending a whopping 13 wrestlers on to Semi-State next weekend at New Castle.

    The top four wrestlers advance out of each weight class. So, a huge congrats to North’s Seth Johnson, Tucker Moseley, Cade Groves, Tanner Webster, Isaac Fruits, Cole Slavens and Kevin Pierce, Crawfordsville’ Jonah Shillings and Southmont’s Alex Grino, Evan Hubble, Conner Moore, and Boone Welliever and Zach Worm.

  • Not your everyday pink flamingo
    Throughout the years of taking sports photos, I have seen many different unusual trinkets that have been good luck charms. South wrestling, however, you may have just come up with the most unique good luck charm that I have seen . . . so far.

  • Defining good sportsmanship
    While I love to capture athletes being competitive and working hard, sometimes I can’t capture sportsmanship in a photo.

  • A look back behind the lens

    It’s always kind of fun looking back at the sports accomplishments of the year so we can do the year-in-review’s top sports stories.

    One story stood out in my mind more than others: The Paper’s No. 3 top story of the year, when Coach John Froedge earned his 700th varsity victory. Since I’ve been at The Paper for a while, I was also around for his 500th and 600th win.

  • Wrangling wrestlers
    ‘Tis the season for the county wrestling meet. North Montgomery will host the meet this Saturday starting at 9 a.m. Something tells me the teams won’t be in the giving spirit. In fact, they will be looking to take every point they can.

  • County hysteria remembered

    I mentioned last week that this will be a good year for the boys’ basketball teams in the county and they will be exciting to watch. Little did I know that would be proven in such a big way in the first county match-up.

    Some people asked my prediction before Friday’s North/South match up. I said it’s a tough call. It will be close and if both teams play the way they are capable, it should be a very good game. Looks like I was right but very much understated the game. It was not a good game. It was a great, awesome, ‘wow’ game.

  • County boys start strong

    Ah, we're finally in full swing of basketball season now that the boys got their season rolling last week.

    I was pleasantly surprised by all three county boys’ teams as they opened up the season. You never know what to expect at the start of a new season.  All three boys’ teams look to me to be much improved over last season.

    So, I’m excited to see more games. North opened up the season by beating Speedway and getting some revenge over the Sparkplugs for a one point loss last season. The Chargers then fell to 4A Harrison on Saturday.

  • Saturday rundown (bonus: Gordon photo shoot)

    Congratulations to Western Boone girls’ basketball for winning their seventh straight Sugar Creek Classic. The Paper of Montgomery is proud to sponsor the tournament and happy that it continues to be a growing success. I personally am holding out hope that someday again I will get a chance to take photos of a county team accepting the classic trophy.

    Also, congratulations to The Paper of Montgomery County’s All-Tournament Team:

    MVP: Rachel Ramey (Western Boone)

    Callie Gaubera (Western Boone)

    Madison Jones (Western Boone)

    Reagan Case (Southmont)

    Paige Schueren (Crawfordsville)

    Carli Cahill (North Montgomery)

  • The girls’ basketball season is just underway and it’s time for their first big test of the season. That’s right, it’s Sugar Creek Classic time.  The Sugar Creek Classic is once again proudly sponsored by The Paper of Montgomery County.

    Each year the classic seems to grow in popularity, featuring the girls’ teams from our county as well Western Boone. The boys will get their chance at the classic after Christmas, but starting Friday at North Montgomery the classic will feature Crawfordsville taking on defending champions and once again favorites Western Boone. Personally, I’m hoping a county team can find a way to shoot down the Stars.
