Pirate Nation came out in full force last Friday night as they traveled 90 minutes north to cheer on their Pirates. The Pirate Nation witnessed the first football Sectional Championship game since 1996 where Charlestown had the opportunity to bring home the trophy. The fans bundled up in heavy winter coats, gloves, scarves and blankets, many drinking their favorite coffee or hot chocolate as they would not let a little wind and frigid temperatures and even some snow, stop their pride in cheering on the visiting Pirates.

The Henryville Lady Hornets and the Silver Creek Lady Dragons both fell in the morning semi finals of their respective classes in the IHSAA semi states in volleyball Saturday.


Henryville won the first two games in its Class A first round match against Indianapolis Lutheran at North Daviess, and Indianapolis Lutheran won 20-25, 20-25, 25-20, 25-20, 15-10.


In the Class AAA semi final in the morning at Jasper, Evansville Memorial defeated Silver Creek 25-14, 19-25, 25-14, 25-21.




The Lady Hornets led 12-6 in the first game, and led 18-17 in the third game.


Things started to go downhill early for Henryville in the fourth game, when they found themselves down 20-13 early in the going.


Henryville led 2-1 at the start of the fifth and deciding game, but in the words of Henryville coach Shallon Willen, “Things kind of fell apart.”


Despite the loss, Willen enjoyed the atmosphere in the gym at North Daviess.


It was a tight match, it was an exciting match,” said Willen. “We just came up a little bit short. I don’t know if they were better, or smarter, or a little bit more experienced.”


Henryville has 11 players returning next year, and Willen hopes to see the program get back to w inning sectionals. This year is the first year that the team has won a sectional in volleyball since 1992.


On the other hand, Henryville is moving up to class AA next year, and Willen thinks that they will have to step up the effort.


We’ll be fine; we already play the AA schools locally,” Willen said.


For one thing, Willen said that they play Crothersville about four times in the regular season, and she added that they will have to drop them a few times, and add some bigger schools for the competitiveness factor.


I have high hopes, even though we’re taking it to the next level,” she added.


In the match, Brittany Pierce had 25 kills; Erika Robertson had 22 kills and 4 aces; and setter Allison Knox had 34 assists.


The Lady Hornets close out the season with a record of 30-7.


Silver Creek-


Silver Creek coach Jeff Zimmerman was impressed with the athletic skills of Memorial. He thought they might just be tall, with two players standing 6-3, and a pair standing 6-1.


They were very good,” admitted Zimmerman. “We weren’t expecting them to be as fundamentally sound as they were.”


They blocked very well; they kept the pressure on us.”


The height of Memorial gave Silver Creek problems, said Zimmerman.


It made it a little tough,” Zimmerman said. “They really forced our hitters to alter their shots a little. That’s something that’s caused some problems. We felt like we competed with them.”


In the match, Hayley Garr had 12 kills and 7 aces, and Kristyn Maymon had 10 kills and 4 aces.

Around 40 movie-goers of all ages drove out to Lake Salinda as the sun was setting on August 26 to catch a free movie and some family fun, courtesy of “Movie Night Under the Stars”. The event was originally slated for the evening of Thursday, July 26, but had to be rescheduled due to inclement weather.
The night’s feature presentation was “Mirror, Mirror”, a new take on the classic fairy tale “Snow White” starring Julia Roberts. The film originated in theaters earlier year. Salem Parks and Recreation hosted the event and provided free drinks, pop corn and bug spray to those in attendance. The Salem Public Library, WSLM Radio and the Washington County YMCA also sponsored the event.
Visitors who came to the lake early also had an opportunity to take a trek down the Veteran’s Walking Trail, a primitive walking path near the lake that opened to the public earlier this summer. This was the second “Movie Night” put on by the city according to Denise Newkirk, Director of Salem’s Parks and Recreation Department, and they are anticipating many more family-friendly events like this will take place at Lake Salinda in the future.
