?     The Scottsburg High School wrestling team traveled to Bloomington South High School with five grapplers for this year’s IHSAA Regionals.
    They came home with three of those wrestlers making the jump to the Semi-State to be held at Roberts Stadium in Evansville. The three wrestlers set a new school record in one season.
    Qualifying for the next step in the State Tourney will be juniors Tanner Howard, second at 152, and Nick Henderson, third at 189 pounds, and senior Chris Chasteen, fourth at 171 pounds.
    Howard opened the day with a win by a pin over Joyal of Terre Haute South in 1:49 and then knocked off Prieboy of Bloomington South 7-1 before losing to undefeated Fudurich of Sullivan 2-6 in the finals.
    Head Coach Tyson Skinner stated, “Howard wrestled well all day.  In the finals, he ran into a tough grappler in the Sullivan boy. He has a tough road ahead, but he is a very talented wrestler.”
    Henderson opened the day with an overtime win over Heston of Edgewood 7-5, and then lost to Brownfield of Columbus North 5-10. He finished by defeating Kopitzke of Jennings Co. 12-1 for third place.  “Henderson started off slow in his match with Edgewood, but by the end of the day was wrestling better than he has all year,” said his coach.
    Chasteen opened the day with a win by fall over Edington of Terre Haute North in 1:48, then lost to Watson of Columbus North 2-10. He lost by fall to Biggs of Jennings County in 4:33 for fourth.  “Chasteen has a big challenge ahead of him.  Placing fourth means he will wrestle a champ from another regional in the first round,” related the coach.
 Junior Sebastian Rodgers and senior Will Stone both lost in their opening round matches. Rodgers lost a heartbreaker to eventual runner-up Terrell of Bloomington South 4-5 in the 4th overtime. Stone lost by fall to eventual champ Vandenveter of Bloomington North.  “Rodgers’ match was a tough one.  He was continually attacking throughout the match only to get called for stalling in the last OT and being penalized one point and that was the matc,.”  Skinner said. “Stone has been battling the injury bug all year and put up a good fight early only to get caught.”

?   The Scottsburg Wrestling Team traveled to Jennings County for the IHSAA Sectionals and came away with 5 qualifiers (the most in school history) and placed 5th overall for their highest team finish since the sectionals were realigned.  Head Coach Tyson Skinner noted, “I was pleased with our team finish.  We placed third one year, but with the realignment several years ago our sectional is vastly improved and we are gaining ground on the top dogs in this sectional now.”
    Leading the way for the Warriors were Junior 152-pounder Tanner Howard as he dominated the 152-pounds division to claim his first sectional crown.  Howard opened the day with a technical fall victory over Baughn of Bedford North Lawrence, then pinned Owen of Seymour to advance to the finals.  “Howard wrestled extremely well today.  He is recovering nicely from a mid season injury and is almost back to top form.”
   Capturing third for the warriors were Juniors Sebastian Rodgers at 160-pounds, and Nick Henderson at 189-pounds and Senior Chris Chasteen at 171-pounds.  Both Chasteen and Henderson dropped semi-final matches to the eventual champion in their weight class, while Rodgers had a more controversial semi-final match.  In the first period Rodgers was accessed a 1 point penalty that ended up deciding the match as he lost 5-6 to Brierly of Columbus East.  “Sebastians match could of very easily went the other way.  He was struck across the face and made a comment to the official about it and was accessed the penalty.  You never talk to the officials while on the mat but it was a very obvious call the other way in my opinion that was missed to put it kindly.”  Skinner Continued, “ Nick and Chris both lost to talented wrestlers and wrestled well throughout the day.”
   Senior Will Stone returning from a season long injury battled to capture 4th at 215lbs.  “He has had a very tough year with his injury and his Dr. wasn’t sure he could go but he gutted it out and wrestled well most of the day.”
   Other placers for the Warriors were; Gage Kelly 5th at 103-pounds Stephen Gary 6th at 112-pounds, Coty Fink 5th at 125-pounds, Kris Sandlin 5th at 140 pounds, and Will Napier 5th at HWT.

?Scottsburg Warriors drop game against Madison Cubs 62-55 PDF Print E-mail

?    The Warriors traveled to Madison on January 9 looking to rebound off a frustrating loss to Seymour.
    Madison, at 2-6, hoped to play spoiler to Scottsburg’s momentum.  The two squads played each other close throughout the first half with Madison leading 33-29 at the break.  There was hope to be had for the Warriors, however, as sophomore guard Mason Gregory began to find his shooting stroke that had left him for a few games.
    The Cubs went on a run in the third quarter, outscoring Scottsburg 16 to 12.  They took a 49- 41 lead into the fourth quarter, knowing that the Warriors have outscored their opponents in the final period nearly every time this season. The 8-point lead was plenty for Madison, though, as they went on to win 62 to 55.
    The loss was described as frustrating for Scottsburg, as a few things bouncing their way could have easily won the game. One positive note in the game was the return of  Gregory to double figures with 19. A.J. Humes and Matt Bridgewater both had 12. Wynn led Madison with 28.

?Total of 12 charged over alleged underage drinking party on January 23 PDF Print E-mail
Written by Marty Randall

?    The count of people charged in connection with a recent alleged underage drinking party on Reeves Road near Lexington increased to 12 as of Monday, February 2.
    A tip was received by law enforcement authorities on Friday night, January 23, that a party for older teens was being held at the residence of Kellie J. Robbins, 38, just north of Kinderhook Road in Lexington Township.
    Reserve Deputy Mike Tscheulin drove by the residence and reported to Deputy Joe Guarneri that there were several vehicles parked at the home. Deputy Don Campbell then joined Deputy Guarneri, Reserve Deputy Tscheulin, Deputy Joe Johnson and Probation Officer Scott Pool on a check of the house.
    Robbins was found there as were several people, all ages 18 to 20. One 16-year-old was also taken into custody and released to his mother.
    Those charged on January 26 with illegal possession/consumption/transportation of alcohol in Scott Superior Court included: Brittany L. Engle, 18, Austin; Lakyn Boyd, 19, Austin; Lee David Arbuckle, 18, Underwood; William Cheatam, 20, Deridder, La.; and Phillip A. Bowling, 18, Scottsburg. All of those charges are Class C misdemeanors. Robbins was charged with ten counts of furnishing alcohol to a minor, all Class C misdemeanors.
    Two other individuals who were found at the “party,” Nathan L. Davis, 21, Scottsburg, and Richard C. Howard, 18, Scottsburg, were charged in Scott Superior Court with disorderly conduct on January 26. Those are Class B misdemeanors.
    On Monday, February 2, four more young people were charged with illegal possession/consumption/transportation of alcohol by a minor. They include Justin W. Cole-Fox, 19, Austin; Robert S. Vetter, 19, Scottsburg; Jasmine R. Howard, 20, Scottsburg; and Haley D. Pedigo, 20, Madison. Vetter is the son of Kellie Robbins and was listed as a resident at the Reeve Road address.
    All of those charged have entered not guilty pleas and were released after posting bails. Trial dates were assigned by Judge Nicholas South.
    In portable alcohol breath testing done at the site, subjects’ results ranged from .013 to .06 percent, the case report indicated. Containers of alcohol were found throughout the home, and several of those arrested were taken into custody as they tried to hide in various rooms of the residence.
    As he was arresting Robbins, Deputy Campbell stated that he tried to explain to the woman that she could not furnish alcohol to a person under age 21. He said that Robbins had apparently thought she could allow underage drinking because, as she related to the officer, all of the party-goers were “...staying there and not going anywhere.”
    Reserve Deputy Donnie Monroe and Indiana State Police Shannon Burton and Matt Marshall assisted at the site. A van was used by the Sheriff’s Department to transport all suspects to the Scott County Security Center in Scottsburg.
