Tigers compete against Warriors

Seniors Kaylyn Holman, Kennadi Lakins and Kaylee Caudill combined to win seven individual events for the Crothersville girls track team, but the Tigers fell 57-56 to Scottsburg on senior night.

Holman won the 800 (2:38), the 1600 (6:04) and the 3200 (13:38), Lakins won the long jump (14-8.5) and the 300 hurdles (57.78) and Caudill won the shot put (23-9) and the discus (65).

Pearl Shirley picked up the Tigers’ other first, winning the 400 in 1:13.

Kennadi Lakins was also second in the high jump (4-8) and second in the 100 (14.38), Kiarra Lakins was third in the 110 hurdles (21.47) and third in the 300 hurdles (1:14.7), Ella Plasse was third in the 3200 (14:09), Karley Gillis was third in the discus (54-1), and Carlee Walker was third in the 200 (22.34).

Both Lakins sisters, Gillis, Caudill, Holman and Plasse are seniors.

Dirk Crater had a busy meet for the Crothersville boys.

He won the long jump (15-5), then turned his attention to the distance running events. He placed second in all three, running the 800 in 2:32, the 1600 in 5:17 and the 3200 in 11:50.

“I had a PR in the mile. In 800 I was just warming my legs up for the two-mile, and in the two-mile I set a PR,” he said. “Just like in cross-country, we’re seeing where I am now, I work hard on weekends, every day of the week and try to make something happen at the end of May. That’s my goal.”

Other points for the Tigers came from Corey Reynolds placing third in the discus (68-7) and Travis Dehart third in the 200 (25.6).

Trinity drops tight match to Hauser

The Trinity tennis team battled on the road at Hauser but came up just short, losing the match 3-2.

The two Cougar points came from Sarah Lemming at one singles, scoring a 6-2, 6-1 win, and Drew Hubbard won 6-0, 6-3 at three singles.

Trinity’s original three singles player Gabby Bleier remained out with

illness, so the Cougars had to shuffle their lineup.

Ella Christopher moved to three singles and lost 3-6, 2-6. At one doubles, Kiley Zabel and Carson Bowling lost 1-6, 4-6 and at two doubles, Natalee Martinez and Abby Yeadon lost 5-7, 2-6.

The Cougars will be back in action on Monday at Brownstown Central.

Brownstown is now 10-6 on the season and will host Columbus East on Saturday at 11 a.m.


Brownstown falls to Scottsburg

Brownstown is now 9-5 this season and will back at home tonight against Floyd Central.

Owls drop game to North

The Seymour baseball team suffered a 9-3 loss at home to Columbus North on Thursday night.

Seymour scored two runs in the bottom of the first inning, loading the bases and taking advantage of an errant throw by North to score.

Then the Owls’ defense struggled, committing errors and allowing North to gain some extra bases. The Bull Dogs stole 15 bases on the night.

Bret Perry scored Will Cottrill in the fifth inning for Seymour’s third and final run of the game.

Perry started for Seymour, and then Gavin Leavy pitched the final 4.2 innings, striking out eight batters.

“He’s creeping up our latter,” assistant coach Jason Longmeier said on the radio after the game. “He just keeps getting better and better.”

Seymour is now 9-6 on the season and will next play on Monday at Trinity Lutheran.
