    Crawfordsville, IN – Wabash College (10-2 in 2014) begins the 2015 football season by traveling to Virginia to face Hampden-Sydney College (7-4 in 2014) in the Gentlemen’s Classic II. Kickoff is Saturday, Sept. 5 at Everett Stadium at 1 p.m.

    Wabash opens the season ranked 10th in the poll. The Little Giants received 335 points in the preseason poll. Hampden-Sydney is not ranked but received one vote in the poll.

    Wabash is 1-0 versus Hampden-Sydney. Coaches Erik Raeburn and Marty Favret will be leading the squads in their eighth and 16th season respectively. As the head coach of the Little Giants, Raeburn accumulated a record of 66-12. He reached 50 wins in his 59th career game at Wabash, hitting that mark faster than any other coach in school history. 

  • Chargers, Mounties go head-to-head
    Thursday, September 03, 2015 12:58 AM

    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.

    “I am excited to get there and meet new people,” Minks said. “Also being able to continue my baseball career, I am blessed to go onto the next level.”

  • North claims soccer victory
    Monday, August 31, 2015 10:52 PM

    He bent it like Beckham.

    Corwyn Hall watched as his ball bent past the goalie’s hands and hit the top right corner of the net.

    This goal finalized North’s lead putting them up 3-2.

    But, first . . . the beginning of the game.

    How to describe the first 30 minutes of the North/South boys’ soccer game last night: chaotic.

    Mounties and Chargers alike ran up and down the field as shot after shot either soared past goalies or were stopped dead in its tracks. North came out firing as they had a few potential breaks to start but each time offsides.

They will be returning to the pitch on Tuesday when they face county-rival Southmont in a battle for the ages.

  • Chargers lose speed in second half
    Monday, August 31, 2015 12:40 AM

    Jaron Wolf heads the ball away from Western Boone’s defender. Going into the half, both teams faced a prospect of 0-0 and a tie on the day. However, the second half veered into the Stars favor as they scored five goals during the second. North’s next game is none other than the Southmont Mounties on Monday.

    The Lady Chargers went 1-2 in the Benton Central Invitational on Saturday. Their first opponent was Benton Central to whom they lost 25-14, 25-20. The battle against Faith Christian went to three sets and each one was a fight until the end. North lost the first set 23-25, grabbed the second 25-20 and then couldn’t hold on in the third losing 23-25 again. They dominated the third game, winning in two sets.

    Taylor Dyson aced four times in the third set while racking up 24 digs. Leading the Chargers in kills was Cortney Kolger with 19. Ally French and Carli Cahill came in right behind with 15 and 10.

    “Getting Cortney and the other big hitters involved is really important for us,” Coach Jodi Webster said. Seeing her make improvements was a big thing on Saturday.”
