  • Columbus Christian beats Bulldogs

    COLUMBUS—Columbus Christian got several fast breaks off Cannelton turnovers and beat the Bulldogs 79-63 in boys basketball Saturday.
    “Transition defense killed us,” said Cannelton Coach Brian Garrett.
    He also said several Bulldog turnovers were careless ones.
    “We do things with the basketball sometimes that astound me. We kill our dribble when we shouldn’t and we’ve got guys who will start a cut and then stop—that leads to turnovers.”

    LINCOLN CITY—Heritage Hills girls basketball Coach Mike Guth’s resignation was accepted by North Spencer’s School Board last Monday.

    “Basketball anymore is a year-round sport—I’m just needing a little break.”

  • New 2A schools will shake up...

    As widely expected, Southridge and Crawford County are dropping back to Class 2A from 3A next year in all IHSAA sports that have four classes.
    But what wasn’t expected by anyone I have talked to was Northeast Dubois and Springs Valley’s moving up to Class 2A from Class A. Yet that was the case when the IHSAA announced its reclassifications based on this year’s enrollment figures.
    Evansville Signature, which has yet to compete in any sports that are classed, is also listed as Class 2A in the new divisions.
