  • Gymnastics sees impressive numbers at camp
    Saturday, August 01, 2015 12:06 AM

    The instructor may have been more excited than the student.

    One girl at the summer gymnastics camp at the Parks and Recreation department did a back tuck for the first time and instructor Anna Cornelius could not contain her excitement. “I was jumping around and I was just thrilled to see them learn new things and accomplish them,” Cornelius said.

    The camp ran for two weeks from July 13 to July 24. Six different instructors taught kids from age four to high school age. 

  • All you need to know about disc golf
    Saturday, August 01, 2015 12:04 AM

    Disc golf, originally known as “frolf,” began in 1976 with Wham-O Frisbees that have since developed into long distance Frisbees.

    The growing sport began in Crawfordsville in the 90s. Nine baskets were set up at a farm south of Crawfordsville and were brought to Milligan Park in 2000. From here, 13 more holes, concrete tees, tee signs, and the Montgomery County disc golf club have turned it into the 26th best disc golf course out of 130 in Indiana.

    This time of year is one of the most intriguing times for a sports fan. With the Major League baseball season winding down, division leaders, teams on the cusp of making the playoffs, making free agent moves, and the start of football season, speculation and enthusiasm are running high.

    We will start on the local high school football scene. North Montgomery returns a strong nucleus, and I imagine they’ll be one of the top teams, not only in the county race, but also the Sagamore Conference. They return reigning Player of the Year, Alex Parsons, quarterback, Baylee Adams, and a wealth of specialized players that should have Coach Josh Thompson and crew looking for another successful campaign.

  • Previous North player becomes Southmont coach
    Tuesday, July 28, 2015 10:50 PM

    Girls’ soccer at Southmont has seen three different head coaches in the past four years.

    Julia Pierce has been named the new head coach along with her assistant Maddie Burton.

    Pierce coached the junior high team at South two years ago.

    She said the advantage to this is that she knows a lot of the players. There are about 10 sophomores and she coached all but one who transferred in.

    “Previously working with the girls helps some because they all know how I work,” Pierce said. “I am ok with being your buddy until game time and if you are not ready, bad cop will come out.”

  • Miller named Mountie volleyball head coach
    Tuesday, July 28, 2015 10:47 PM

    NEW MARKET – Heather Miller was named head volleyball coach at Southmont yesterday, six days prior to the first day of practice.

    “I would like to thank Southmont, and Mr. Charles, for giving me this great opportunity to coach the Mounties,” Miller said. “I’m looking forward to getting started Monday.”

    The 1997 Crawfordsville graduate is currently a fourth grade teacher at Turkey Run Elementary. She served as the assistant softball coach at Crawfordsville for five years, the head junior varsity and assistant varsity volleyball coach at Turkey Run for two seasons, and helped the Warrior softball program for a year.

    She will take over the Mountie team that finished 8-26 last season, but has quite a bit of talent returning.

    “I’m looking forward to getting to know the girls and build as a team,” Miller said. “I’m counting on this group to build the foundation for Mountie volleyball.”
