  • Tigers claw past Mounties
    Wednesday, December 07, 2016 4:00 AM
    A hard-fought wrestling matchup between the Southmont Mounties and the Lebanon Tigers ended with the Lebanon on top by just two points. The final score was 41-39.
    This nail biter of a wrestling match may not have swung the Mounties way, but it did have a lot of excitement around it. Austin Williams (195) and Evan Lowe had the fastest pins for South at 1:50. Dakota Ball (145) was also able to pick up a win by decision 4-2.

    LIZTON – The Lady Chargers entered Tuesday’s game at Tri-West winners of their last two and looking to move to 2-0 in the Sagamore Athletic Conference. However Bruins, Maggie Cora and Hailee Gifford, had different thoughts as the Bruins defeated the Chargers 53-39.
    North had a difficult time against a Tri-West press in the first quarter as they committed eight turnovers to help the Bruins to a 10-5 first quarter advantage after leading 5-4 midway through.

    LIZTON- The North wrestling team travelled to Lizton to take on Tri West and were able to come away with a victory 57-18.
    The Chargers took a little different line up and were still able to find success. North sent mostly junior varsity wrestlers to the mat against an overmatched Tri-West team. The Chargers were able to win 9 matches including Emmett McCloud’s (152) win by decision in overtime. Along with these victories, Pin Newlin (145) and Brent Barfell (152) were able to win their exhibition matches.

    OXFORD- The Chargers continue their run by defeating Benton Central Tuesday night. The girls final score was 98-78 and the boys score was 117-54. 
    Brynn Anderson was a factor for the girls last night by winning the 100 free and 100 backstroke. A couple others who were major contributors to the Chargers win were Megan Merica, winning the 200 free, and Miki Smith, who won the 200 IM. 
    The biggest star for North during this meet was Christopher Schaub. Schaub walked away victorious in both the 200 and 500 freestyles. Gus Maxwell and Jeffrey Miller also had some successful events. Maxwell took first place in the 200 IM and got second in the 100 fly. Miller won the 50 free but fell just short in the 100 finishing in second.

    LEBANON- Both the boys and girls Crawfordsville swimming teams defeated the Lebanon Tigers. The girls won by a close score of 92-90 and the boys won 111-75.
    A couple of ladies that helped win this tight meet were Cami McGrady and Emily Humphrey. McGrady was able to win the 200 and 500 freestyles and Humphrey was victorious in the 200 IM and the 100 breaststroke. Another name who stood out for the lady Athenians was Kaylee McCandless who won the 50 free and took second in the 100 free. For the boys, Sam Malott and Jacob Pruett both showed off their talent in the pool. Malott won the 200 free early on and took second in the 500 free. Pruett had an exceptional night, taking first place in the 200 IM and the 100 butterfly. 
    The records for these teams just keep getting better. The boys now sit at 4-0 and the girls are at 3-1.

    Hello world!
    Last week I started to delve into just how good the boys’ basketball teams could be this season and we’re starting to get some answers. 
    To put it simply, I think they can all be really, really good. 
    Southmont showed some serious firepower and a staunch defense in wins over North Montgomery and Cloverdale last weekend. Mountie head coach Jon Sparks has a great group this year that looks like they trust one another on both ends of the court. Junior Cam Chadd and senior Kaleb Swick are elite scorers and have rounded out their games nicely the last couple of years. Both can hit the glass and defend pretty much every position. The Mounties also have a handful of sharpshooters – which never hurts.

  •  Athenians stifled by Broncho athleticism
    Wednesday, December 07, 2016 4:00 AM
    The struggles continued for the Crawfordsville girls’ basketball team Tuesday as they came out on the wrong end of a showdown with Lafayette Jeff, 83-25. 
    The Lady Bronchos struck early and often and created 31 Athenian turnovers with a high-intensity defense. It caused havoc that prevented Crawfordsville from finding the bottom of the net very often. The Lady Athenians connected on just three field goals in each half. 
    One thing the Lady Athenians were able to accomplish was getting to the charity stripe. Freshman point guard Lauran Kellerman was aggressive all night at the instruction of her coach.

    Well, last week I predicted that Crawfordsville boys’ basketball would beat Lebanon okay so I said by double digits and they game the fans a great two point win to enjoy instead. Either way, they beat evil Lebanon so it was a good thing.
    I also said that it would that one of the hardest parts of my job is to leave one great game to go to another game. However, I was also excited to see how the North/South game would play out. One of the other best things about my job is meeting and getting a chance to talk with people, which is what happened once I got to South. It was close to half when I arrived. I sat down at the end of the court and a very nice gentleman started up a conversation with me. His name was Fred Zimmerman. He has been a south supporter for many years. As the Southmont Mountie mascot posed with little kids for pictures during halftime. Zimmerman pointed to the mascot and said, “I’m sure you were not around here at the time but I was the Southmont Chicken at games.” I sat there for a second and thought the Chicken? How on Earth does that work with the Mountie mascot?

  • Burton tabbed as top volleyball player
    Tuesday, December 06, 2016 4:00 AM
    Southmont Senior Kasey Burton certainly stays busy with several activities and a budding music career. While she excels at most every hobby, her talents were on display for all to see this volleyball season. Those efforts earned her the title of The Paper of Montgomery County’s 2016 Volleyball Player of the Year. 
    Burton finished the season with 116 kills and 216 digs. She added 16 blocks and 232 serve-receives to be one of the most well-rounded players around. 
    “My favorite moment of the season was when my sister, Kyra, who now lives in Texas, came home and surprised me on my senior night,” Burton said. “The highlight of my career was when we beat Crawfordsville (this year) for the title of County Champs.”

    NEW MARKET- The Mountie Swimmers took on the Lebanon Tigers in a Conference meet on Saturday. The girls fell short losing 107-78, but the boys beat Lebanon for the first time in years 94-81.
    For the boys, Ryan Sacco and Owen Zimmerman really shined for the Mounties by winning two events a piece. Sacco dropped 3.56 seconds on his 500 freestyle time to win that along with the 200 free. Zimmerman showed his versatility by winning the 200 IM and the 100 backstroke. Even though the girls weren’t able to win, senior leader Madison Wickholm along with freshman young guns Jane Scheidler and Emma Tyler, were able to win 2 events each. Wickholm won the 200 and 500 freestlyes while Scheidler took the 50 and 100 freestyles. Tyler took over the 200 IM and the 100 breaststroke.
    With this win, the boy’s record is now 5-1 and the girls fall to 4-3.

Johnson took the 200 freestyle and the 100 backstroke while Bushman won the 200 IM and the 100 Butterfly. Maxwell was able to take gold quickly in the 50 and 100 freestyles.

    A little more than 12 hours after suiting up and battling Sagamore Athletic Conference rival Lebanon, Crawfordsville took to its home floor in a midday matchup with Attica. The Lady Athenians lacked the energy and gusto to hang with the Ramblers, losing 60-23 Saturday. 
    “I’m a little disappointed today. We didn’t have the energy we needed. I didn’t think we hustled getting back on defense and it cost us a lot. This should have been a closer game, I think,” said Crawfordsville head coach Tony Bean. “Now maybe that’s because of the energy we spent last night against Lebanon, having to turn around within 12 hours is a little tough, but no excuses. We have to get better and we have to get better in a hurry or this is going to continue for quite a while.”

    Only a few families in Montgomery County have contributed as much to their high school basketball teams as the family of Burrill and Marcella Denhart. I asked the Denharts for some of their memories about growing up with such an amazing family. Here are some of their thoughts.
    Thoughts from Gary Denhart Pt. 2
    A couple other great memories were always going to the Linden café, the Kopper Kettle, after a game for a cheeseburger and fries and a huge crowd being there to welcome us home. Thanks to either Jack Warren or Alvin Winger our bus rides to and from games were always safe.
