  • Post 72 remembers, looks ahead
    Sunday, August 02, 2015 11:55 PM

    Byron Cox Post 72 completed another successful season, on July 20, losing to Kokomo in the Regional Championship at Loeb Stadium. Their final tally was 16-13.

    They entered the season with quite a bit of unknowns. The biggest job was to mesh 13 young guys, with their four returning players.

    “We knew coming in that there were going to be some ups and downs and some growing pains,” head coach Johnathan Pickett said. “However, I thought towards the end we started to gel and were learning from our losses.”

  • 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.
