  • Knights overrun Athenians

    The Athenians went neck-and-neck with the visiting Lafayette Central Catholic Knights only to fall behind in the last minute of play. The Knights stole the win 69-54.

    The fourth quarter comeback by Athenian Konner Smith helped Crawfordsville rally to a one-point lead with 1:39 to go. Smith scored seven for C’ville to put them ahead 59-58 but a Crawfordsville turnover and two strong Knight drives sealed the deal.

    “I’m proud of our effort,” Athenian coach David Pierce said. “We gave ourselves a chance. We played hard but we beat ourselves.”

  • County wrestlers head to New Castle

    Three made it last year. Who will survive this year?

    Out of 13 county wrestlers, the coaches always hope to have more advance to State than the previous year.

    North sent the most to Semi-State of the County this year and the most Charger coach Maurice Swain has ever sent. Seven, compared to five last year, made it through and only one is a senior.

  • The Paper’s Athletes of the Week is published in Tuesday’s Weekly of West Central Indiana and will pick two athletes from each school for the previous week.

  • Athenian girls’ basketball coach resigns

    Tony Thomas stepped down from the head coaching position of the Crawfordsville girls’ basketball team over the weekend.

    Thomas was in his fifth year as head coach and 12th year being involved with the program.

    He said the position took a lot of time and last summer, he and his wife, Christie, decided they wanted to dedicate time elsewhere.

  • Saturday spectacular

    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.
