Borden Loses To Austin PDF Print E-mail

    Borden came out with a very different game plan in a loss to Austin Friday night. Borden attempted to take a much stronger Austin team out of their game, and for the first half it worked. But the second half was much different as Borden lost 56 to 31.
    Austin won the tip and with the first possession went to Raichel in the corner for three. It would be the only three-point shot made in the half.
When Borden came back down it was obvious something was different. Borden worked the ball around the perimeter and slowed the game way down. Borden controlled the ball for three-fourths of the first half. In doing so they kept Austin from establishing a game plan they are accustom to.
    Borden was so intent on controlling the ball they took very few shots in the first quarter. By Borden holding the ball such a high percentage of the time Austin had few opportunities to shoot. The score was only Austin 7 - Borden 1 at the end of the first quarter.

    John G. Roeder, 56, was hired Tuesday night (January 5) as the new Superintendent of the North Harrison Community Schools. The vote (5-0) by the board came quickly in a meeting that was for the purpose of hiring the new superintendent only.
    “This board has been looking for a strong superintendent who has been successful as a superintendent,” said board member Gary Byrne during the meeting. “He (Roeder) will be a strong leader for this school.”
    Byrne said that during the last year, the board had three separate searches for a new superintendent, in looking for the best possible chief.
    Roeder retired June 30 after nine years as the superintendent of the Sunman-Dearborn Community School Corporation, a system of 4.300 students in northern Dearborn County, in the Cincinnati area of Indiana.
    What drove Roeder to re-enter the education workplace was a desire to simply get involved in education again.
    “After six months, I knew the choice was to return,” Roeder said of returning to the field. “After taking some time off, I’d like another five years ion education.”
