  • Tigers top North behind four-run fifth

    Lebanon — The past few seasons, there hasn't been much that has separated the Lebanon and North Montgomery baseball teams.

    Tuesday night at Lebanon's Memorial Park was another back-and-forth game that the Tigers' won 5-2, thanks to a four-run fifth inning and strong pitching from starter Reid Schaller.

    "North is always fundamentally strong and compete hard," Lebanon head coach Rick Cosgray said. "They are a great conference opponent. I was really pleased with how our kids came out and played. We didn't have a lot of offense early in the game, but we stuck with it until we got some key hits."

    North Montgomery head coach Matt Merica said the Tigers did the little things they needed to in order to win.

     "It was a game between two good teams and they hit the ball at key opportunities," Merica said. "We didn't play poorly; we didn't give them anything. We battled hard and it came down to the end there. They were just better than us today."

  • The Crawfordsville baseball team won handedly on the road Tuesday, 15-7.

    For the Athenians, Westin Evans had two doubles and Michael Minks contributed one as well. Trent Johnson, Evans, Nick Corbin, Minks, Chase Dowell, Dylan Mangold, Dane Baldwin and Payten Abney all had RBIs, some multiple.

    The Athenians move to 17-2 on the season with a 6-2 Sagamore Conference record. Their only two losses come from conference-rival Lebanon.

    Crawfordsville steps back up to the plate Thursday when the host Danville for the second time this week. Game-time is set for 6 p.m.

  • Football sectional shake-up

    When you think of fall and the sports that come with it, one image inevitably comes to mind – football playoffs.

    The IHSAA announced Monday that there will be a change in the sectional-groups for nearly every sport this year, including football, that is sure to spice things up.

    For some schools, their sectional will virtually stay the same, almost becoming a conference tournament in and of itself. However, schools like Southmont will experience a big shift as they are now placed in a sectional comprising of teams they don’t normally see during the regular season.

    That, among other reasons, has coaches around the area reacting in different ways. Southmont’s coach Desson Hannum said one difference is that they’ll be heading south instead of north.

    “We could possibly play in Mitchell or Paoli – some pretty long hauls for us,” Hannum said. “I think Monrovia is probably the best team in the sectional, as it currently stands and North Put I think is going to be improved – I think we definitely have a fair shot in the sectional.”

    For Crawfordsville and coach Mike Hammons, this year’s sectional will essentially become a conference-tournament.

  • The Southmont Girls Tennis team could not stand the shine of the Western Boone Stars Monday when they played host. Western Boone defeated the Mounties 3-0. None of South’s ladies won their matches. Hopefully the Mounties will have better luck Tuesday as they play Greencastle at 5 p.m.

    Western Boone 3, Southmont 0

    Allissa Juhn (WB) def. Katy Harrison 6-1, 6-3; Kylee Bobbs (WB) def. Kelly Tucker 6-4, 6-1; Katie Collins (WB) def. Coca Waddell 6-3, 6-2; Emma Schacfer- Meg Kinslow (WB) def. Breanna Mason- Kennedy Black 2-6, 6-6; Talyn Gum- Katie Dale (WB) def. Paige Winniger-Katie Rosentrekr 6-3, 2-6, 4-2

  • With a shift across all of the sectional boards Monday, as announced by IHSAA, the post-season will look a little different for most area schools this year – Crawfordsville, North and South included.

    Crawfordsville and North will be in Sectional #25 again, but will encounter some new schools they haven’t seen in the post-season for many years. The group includes Crawfordsville, North Montgomery, Frankfort, Lebanon, Tri-West and Western Boone. With the new addition of the Bruins, the collection will essentially become a conference-tournament.

    Southmont, on the other hand, will be seeing the most change as they enter Sectional #44 with Cloverdale, Monrovia, North Put, South Put and South Vermillion high schools.

    Athenian baseball coach John Froedge, who recently picked up his 700th career-win, said they are probably some of the least-affected by the change.

    “Not much of a different for us,” Froedge said. “It’s virtually a conference tournament without South and Danville. A sectional matchup would mean a third meeting [and] I like playing rivalry teams and the sectional level.”
