    Kalidou Diaw and the Athenians pulled up short in Thursday’s game against the Tigers. The Athenians had six shots on goal while Joel Raters had two saves. “We need to do a much better job getting our head up to find the space available,” Coach Marcus Hale said. “The right wing was available the first half and the left wing was available the second half. We just did not possess to find it often enough.”

    Crawfordsville met Attica for the second time in two weeks Thursday. After disposing of the Red Ramblers 25-11, 25-5, on Aug. 22 to help them claim the North Putnam Invitational, the Athenians again swept their visitors, 25-14, 25-16, and 25-18.

    After leading 18-12 midway through the first set, Crawfordsville scored seven of the final nine points for the win.

    Attica kept things interesting in set two. They held a slim 5-4 lead before Caroline Schueren recorded one of her seven kills on the night to knot things up at five. Big sister, Paige, would record one of her four aces to give the Athenians a 7-5 lead.

    As a huge Chicago Cubs fan, I regret going to bed in the seventh inning of the Chicago Cubs 2-0 win over the Los Angeles Dodgers this past Sunday. Knowing that Jake Arrieta was just nine outs away from a no-no, I figured it was Cubs destiny and that they would probably break it up with a seeing eye single with two outs in the ninth.

    It was a close one but the North golf team pulled it out. The girls played a double conference match-up against Lebanon and Frankort.

    This was their third night in a row of play but that did not deter them.

    Lebanon came in two strokes behind North, hitting a 177. Five of the girls made it into the 40s with Bonwell at the helm shooting a 42 and Abbey Woodard right behind at 43. Megan Douglas and Scout Groves came in at 45 with Kristen Glass at 46.

  • Chargers, Mounties go head-to-head

    Both 1-1. Both have lost to the other twice in the past four years.

    Friday’s football game ends a week filled with rivalry matches. This Friday will have North ranked third in the conference and South ranked fourth.

    While South’s strength is running, North will be coming into this week with 206 yards of passing after last week’s game against Brebeuf.

    “I think the key for us is we have to be able to run the ball,” Southmont head coach Desson Hannum said. “We gotta get back to establishing our running and getting into a rhythm.”

    Last week South ran for about 170 yards and passed for 140. Nathaniel Farabee had 90 of those yards but fumbles were the biggest problem for South.
