    Floyd Central received a big boost from Jennifer Smith against host Scottsburg Thursday night, when she scored 23 points and grabbed 8 rebounds in her team’s 68-50 win.
    Floyd had trouble with the Warriorettes in the 1st quarter, when they led just 19-16 at the end of the period.
    The 2nd quarter saw Scottsburg take a lead over the Lady Highlanders and lead 31-30 at the half.
    Floyd Central coach Joe Voelker said that the key to the win was in going on a 20-2 run to start the second half.
    “That kind of won the game right there,” said Voelker of his team’s blitz to start the half.
    Voelker said that although Scottsburg was partly responsible for the start his team had in the first half, he said his own team was partly to blame for the problems.

    The Floyd Central Highlanders’ dream football season came to a sudden halt at Center Grove in the regional of football Class 5A Friday night. The Trojans won a decisive 42-7 victory in the contest, and the reason was pretty simple: they kept it simple, and ran straight up the middle.
    Center Grove is the defending Class 5A state champs in football, and they showed why they won the title in state’s biggest class last season.
    A total of three different Trojan running backs passed the 100 rushing yard mark in the game, and the school won its sixth regional title in football with the win.
