    Congratulations to Western Boone girls’ basketball for winning their seventh straight Sugar Creek Classic. The Paper of Montgomery is proud to sponsor the tournament and happy that it continues to be a growing success. I personally am holding out hope that someday again I will get a chance to take photos of a county team accepting the classic trophy.

    Also, congratulations to The Paper of Montgomery County’s All-Tournament Team:

    MVP: Rachel Ramey (Western Boone)

    Callie Gaubera (Western Boone)

    Madison Jones (Western Boone)

    Reagan Case (Southmont)

    Paige Schueren (Crawfordsville)

    Carli Cahill (North Montgomery)

  • Athenians builds off last year
    Monday, November 23, 2015 9:19 PM

    C’ville girls’ swim team will be returning numbers as well as adding on a few more. With five more Lady Athenians than last year, the team will host 14 swimmers and divers this season. 

    “Part of the excitement is with the addition of some very talented freshmen this season, and with their contributions, the Lady Athenians plan to improve upon our overall record from last year,” Athenian coach Kevin Hedrick said.

  • North brings in numbers, looks to rebuild
    Monday, November 23, 2015 9:16 PM

    North’s girls’ swim team graduated a hefty amount of swimmers and divers. They won county last year and went 11-5 on the season. Ashlynn Bennett was North’s top diver and broke the record for diving. However, a farewell to key divers is bringing an influx of even more which Charger coach John Walker said he did not expect.

    He is expecting a lot from Lauren Odle. Odle snagged three best times last season with 100 free, 100 back and 500 free.

    “We are going to try to get a sectional victory for her and a school record but it will be a lot of work.” Walker said.

  • Mountie swimmers look to maximize potential
    Monday, November 23, 2015 9:14 PM

    South’s girls’ swimming team lost three key seniors from last year: Nicole Wickholm, Katelyn Harrison, and Christa Edwards. Wickholm held the 100 fly best time at 1:14.64 while Harrison and Edwards helped round out the team with multiple second best times and supporting positions.

    “We lost three girls last year, which hurt our girls’ team a little bit because they were pretty strong for our team,” Athenian coach Ian Line said. However, he added that they have a strong group of returning girls as well.

  • Stars claim seventh Classic championship
    Sunday, November 22, 2015 4:48 PM

    LINDEN – Western Boone was looking for its seventh consecutive, and eighth overall, Sugar Creek Classic crown Saturday evening as they faced Southmont. The Mounties did their best to pull the upset, but in the end, it was the Stars taking home the title, 50-40.

    “It’s like I just told the girls when we huddled up there, I’ve been really hard on this group over the first month of the season, because we expect big things out of this group,” said Star coach Rich Schelsky. “Tonight, I’m not mad at them at all. When you win this thing as many times as we have the pressure is on every time you walk into this tourney. I don’t care if you win by one or 100, we’re winning.”

  • Chargers defeat Athenians for third
    Sunday, November 22, 2015 4:44 PM

    LINDEN – After two tough games Friday evening, Crawfordsville and North Montgomery were looking to right the ship as they squared off in the consolation game of the Sugar Creek Classic. Crawfordsville’s zone was effective the majority of the game, however a strong third quarter by the Chargers helped them prevail 34-25.

    Charger coach Ryan Nuppnau was proud of the way his team handled the Athenian zone, “The 2-3 has been our Achilles heel all season. We made some changes to our offense, and it’ll take some time to fully understand it, but I thought the girls adapted well.”

    Training under supervision is much easier than training when no one is watching. Wouldn't you agree?

    Carli Lloyd, female soccer star and 2015 Sportsman of the Year in Sports Illustrated, gives all of her credit to success to her training when no one was watching.

  • Zurek powers Wabash to playoff win
    Sunday, November 22, 2015 4:36 PM

    So what does Mason Zurek do after a record-setting 278-yard rushing day to win the Monon Bell? He rushes for 312 yards and four touchdowns in a come-from-behind 35-14 win over Albion in the first round of the NCAA playoffs.

    Wabash (11-0) pounded their Michigan neighbors in the second half to the tune of 29 points to just 7 for the Britons (9-2). The Little Giants advance to the second round Thanksgiving weekend and will face 11-0 Thomas More College.
