  • LORI POTEET: County success
    Monday, May 16, 2016 11:32 PM
    It’s been a long time coming for the Crawfordsville softball program but they brought the big bats to North White this weekend sweeping a double header. Scoring 27 runs throughout the day and winning both games in five innings!!

    Records are meant to be broken and so they were last Friday at the County track meet. Crawfordsville’s Maddy Hurt broke the County meet record in the 3200 meter run with a time of 12:14.3 which has been standing for 13 track seasons and was previously held by Melissa Rogers.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    ‘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
    Monday, December 07, 2015 9:24 PM

    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
    Monday, November 30, 2015 11:47 PM

    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.
