    Winning their matches for the Chargers was Seth Johnson at 106, Ticker Mosely at 113, Corwyn Hall at 120, Jack Davis at 126, Cade Groves at 125, Tanner Webster at 170, Isaac Fruits at 182, Jacob Knowling at 195, Cole Slavens at 220, and Kevin Pierce at 285.

    “It went well.” Coach Maurice Swain commented, “We competed hard and it looked like they were ready to go and excited to wrestle.”

  • Mounties show grit in win
    Wednesday, November 25, 2015 12:41 AM

    WALLACE - Southmont's offense came alive at just the right time and their defense made some stops down the stretch to defeat pesky Turkey Run, 55-52, in both teams’ openers.

    "In our last six games at Turkey Run, we were 1-5, so now we're 2-5," said Mountie head coach John Sparks. "This is a tough place to win."

    The Warriors started hot, as they hit 55 percent of their field goals in the first quarter to race out to a 15-8 lead after one.

  • Athenians defeat Greencastle
    Wednesday, November 25, 2015 12:34 AM

    GREENCASTLE- Crawfordsville (1-0, 0-0 SAC) travelled to Greencastle (0-1) Tuesday night to clash with the Tiger Cubs on their home court. The Athenians rode on the scoring of senior Konnor Smith in the first half and Cameron Harris in the second to beat out the Tigers 63-54.

    The Athenians jumped out to an early 4-0 lead after a three-pointer from senior Ryan Barr. Greencastle responded and then set back in their 2-3 zone. This zone caused problems for the Crawfordsville offense.

    “The zone they (Greencastle) ran hurt us,” Athenian coach David Pierce said. “They weren’t very aggressive and it clogged up the middle for our drivers.”

  • Mustangs outreach Chargers
    Wednesday, November 25, 2015 12:32 AM

    LINDEN – Fountain Central started the game near the rim, hitting 7 of their first 10 shots from the paint, and never strayed far away in posting a 66-31 win over the host Lady Chargers. North Montgomery had few answers for the Mustangs' two six-foot inside post players Jenna Royer and Macee Williams.

    Williams led all scorers with 21 points.

  • Five fouls, 70+ points gives Tiger Cubs win
    Wednesday, November 25, 2015 12:27 AM

    A slow start and lots of turnovers plagued the Crawfordsville Athenians’ seventh loss of the season against the Greencastle Tiger Cubs, 28-72.

    The Tiger Cubs (7-1) came in with only one loss and a lot of shooting skills. The team went almost 50 percent in field goals and free throws. Big quarters from multiple players brought the team together in their 44-point domination.

    Junior Gracie Smith started the first quarter with seven points. She followed it with two threes drained in the second. Center junior Nailah Ray found her spot in the third quarter going 5-for-7 with 10 points. They passed around the horn, found Ray and Ray put it up.

  • Athenians builds off last year
    Monday, November 23, 2015 9:19 PM

    C’ville girls’ swim team will be returning numbers as well as adding on a few more. With five more Lady Athenians than last year, the team will host 14 swimmers and divers this season. 

    “Part of the excitement is with the addition of some very talented freshmen this season, and with their contributions, the Lady Athenians plan to improve upon our overall record from last year,” Athenian coach Kevin Hedrick said.

  • North brings in numbers, looks to rebuild
    Monday, November 23, 2015 9:16 PM

    North’s girls’ swim team graduated a hefty amount of swimmers and divers. They won county last year and went 11-5 on the season. Ashlynn Bennett was North’s top diver and broke the record for diving. However, a farewell to key divers is bringing an influx of even more which Charger coach John Walker said he did not expect.

    He is expecting a lot from Lauren Odle. Odle snagged three best times last season with 100 free, 100 back and 500 free.

    “We are going to try to get a sectional victory for her and a school record but it will be a lot of work.” Walker said.

  • Mountie swimmers look to maximize potential
    Monday, November 23, 2015 9:14 PM

    South’s girls’ swimming team lost three key seniors from last year: Nicole Wickholm, Katelyn Harrison, and Christa Edwards. Wickholm held the 100 fly best time at 1:14.64 while Harrison and Edwards helped round out the team with multiple second best times and supporting positions.

    “We lost three girls last year, which hurt our girls’ team a little bit because they were pretty strong for our team,” Athenian coach Ian Line said. However, he added that they have a strong group of returning girls as well.
