  • Morgan Laws, softball’s Player of the Year
    Tuesday, June 30, 2015 10:44 PM

    Somebody has to be the one to go out there, get on the mound and take control of the game.

    For a recent Southmont graduate, that didn’t seem to be a problem.

    Mountie ace Morgan Laws is Montgomery County’s 2015 Softball Player of the Year. Together with her teammates, Laws helped propel the Lady Mounties of Southmont to the regional-level for the second consecutive season.

    Tuesday, June 30, 2015 10:31 PM

    For as long as I can remember, Montgomery County has been a hot-bed for educating the area’s youth in the way of sports.

    This take shape in many forms – the foremost being summer training camps and sessions for all of the adolescent residents of the county.

  • Indiana eyes bright future in baseball
    Monday, June 29, 2015 10:17 PM

    The Indiana Thunder Baseball Club is a travel baseball organization comprised of young men from Indiana middle and high schools who enjoy playing in a competitive, high atmosphere. Not only is baseball an important aspect in the lives of these adolescents but so are academics, leadership and the value of family and community. Thus, with this approach in mind, we desire financial assistance. Often, players are not able to secure the funds necessary to cover the cost required to compete at this level.

  • Behind the Lens – Time for a little R&R
    Monday, June 29, 2015 10:14 PM

    The moratorium week for high school athletes is here. I have noticed several coaches on Twitter encouraging athletes to stay active and not lose what they have gained over the summer. At this point in the summer I always start looking forward to the fall sports. However, there is still lots of summer left to improve.

    Baseball started back in March and is still going strong. Travel baseball teams are not under the same rules for the moratorium week so they are still allowed to compete in tournaments. The 17U Indiana Thunder team which is a local team won the Hoosier Wooden Bat Tournament held at Anderson University over the weekend.

    Sunday, June 28, 2015 10:19 PM

    To some, fun means a relaxing weekend spent on the couch, most likely collecting the crumbs and spills of a well-deserved day off.

    But to others, it means getting out there, celebrating life and yes – getting a little dirty.

    The Warrior Dash weekend at Tom’s Marine saw more than 7,000 racers from all over the country united in one jubilant athletic event – an event intended to celebrate life and health, and to raise funds for a fantastic cause.
