HENRYVILLE, Ind.—The Indiana Department of Transportation will close the southbound left lane of Interstate 65 between mile markers 29.0 and 19.0 next week—two miles at a time—for asphalt patching. This operation is part of the $12.4 million asphalt resurface and bridge replacement project from Scottsburg to Henryville.
This closure will begin in I-65’s southbound left lane at 9 p.m. Sunday (DECEMBER 6) between mile markers 29.0 and 27.0. It will continue 24-hours-a-day in two-mile segments until crews reach the 19.0 mile marker—or until Friday (DECEMBER 11) at 6 p.m.
Inclement weather could cancel daily closures.
The southbound I-65 right lane will remain open to traffic. Width is limited to eleven feet.
E & B Paving is the state’s contractor for refurbishing this 9.76-mile section of I-65 in Scott and Clark Counties. The project includes replacement of twin bridges at Brownstown Road.
A cross-median traffic shift is in effect at the 22.0 mile marker to facilitate bridge reconstruction.

Before the Warriorettes’ game against CAI on Monday night, Nov. 30, Coach Donna Cheatham chewed out the players for being distracted in the locker room before the game. After straightening up and winning a 60-40 blowout, the Scottsburg girls demanded an apology. Cheatham obliged.

The Warriorettes’ were able to stay in control throughout the game. There was never a doubt of their dominance. In fact, after going up 19-4 in the .rst quarter, Cheatham began to dig deep into the team’s bench.

“I got to give some kids some very valuable playing time. I was able to experiment with the bench. You can’t always do that,” said Cheatham. “I’m still looking for subs who will score. They’re playing defense, but if you’re going to win a game you have to put a ball through a hoop. My subs are timid about that.”

Cheatham said she was especially impressed when veteran players began helping her to bring the bench up to speed. She watched Taylor Means and Emma Waskom pass up on easy shots in order to give substitutes opportunities.

Cheatham said the game was also beneficial because it helped the team confront their ultimate weakness.

“Obviously height is our Achilles heel. [CAI] had a couple of six-footers so we got to experience our disadvantage. If we had one big kid, we would go from being good to being very good,” said Cheatham.

According to Cheatham, basketball is a game of height, speed and muscle.

“We’ve got the speed, and I think we’re strong enough, but we don’t have the height. I think that hurts us in a lot of games,” said Cheatham.

The Warriorettes took on the rival Austin Lady Eagles on Tuesday, Nov. 24. The contest ended in a 52-41 victory for Scottsburg.

Point guard Emma Waskom said that going into the game, nerves were high.

“No matter where the game takes place, there are always a lot of nerves when we play Austin. That’s an important factor, but I think we handled it really well,” said Waskom.

Coach Cheatham agreed. “We did very well considering we were very nervous. I always try to downplay the Austin game to the kids, but it never works. I heard them mentioning it throughout the beginning of the season,” said Cheatham.

At the end of the .rst quarter, Austin held a three point lead over the Warriorettes. This was only part of the game where they could have been considered in control. Scottsburg scoredseventeen points in the second quarter to go ahead by four points. After that, the lead was only extended.

Cheatham credited Katie Horstman and Taylor Stewart for their notable performances in the matchup. Horstman scored eight of the seventeen points during the explosive second quarter. Throughout the whole game, Stewart and Horstman combined for 22 points. Chatham likened them to secret weapons.

“Austin was focused on Barrett and Waskom, but Stewart and Horstman both had an amazing game. They weren’t supposed to be scoring, but they were performing in the limelight. When those two rise to the occasion, it makes us hard to beat,” said Cheatham.

The Warriorettes faced off against the Brownstown Lady Braves on the evening of Nov. 27. After what Coach Cheatham called a “comedy act of officials,” the game ended with the Warriorettes ahead by three points. The final score was 56-53.

“The game didn’t get over until almost 11:00,” said Cheatham. “That game was so interesting. You couldn’t figure out where the calls were coming from, but the officials just kept blowing their whistles.”

During the game, there was a total of 57 foul calls made. 73 free throws were shot as a result. Scottsburg had a slightly better percentage on their shots, edging out Brownstown by the four points they ended up needing to win. Emma Waskom shot 9/11 on her free throws,standing out among both teams.

Cheatham said that despite questionable calls, the Warriorettes were able to lead for most of the game. After overcoming some initial challenges, they stayed in control for the entirety.

“It started off slow. We were playing on the Friday after Thanksgiving, and you could tellthat both teams had sat at the table for too long. Once we got the lead, though, we didn’t loseit,” said Cheatham.

Cheatham said that overcoming the tough circumstances of the game was indicative of something greater.

“We showed that we are growing up. We’re a much more mature ball club than we havebeen in the past. In recent years, we have had talent but not heart. The girls have been second-guessers. I think that now we’re beginning to plow through that,” said Cheatham.
