    In a possible preview of a match up in the Floyd Central Girls’ Tennis Sectional, the Floyd Central Lady Highlanders won a 5-0 sweeping of the North Harrison Lady Cats Wednesday (April 29) at the Floyd Central courts.
    It wasn’t as though North Harrison didn’t win any individual games in any of the sets; they won games in every set except the two set match at the no. 3 singles position.
    The Lady Highlanders managed to avoid sending any of the five positions into a third set, either.
    At the no. 1 singles position, Carmen Schreiber def. Wynn Shroyer 6-3, 6-1. The no. 2 singles spot saw Annie Hunt win 6-1, 6-2 over Caitlyn Janes. And at the no. 3 singles position, Sandra McCaffrey def. Hannah Raake 6-0, 6-0.

Lanesville baseball diamond nearing completion of renovations PDF Print E-mail

    The Lanesville High School baseball diamond is nearing the end of a series of renovations and improvements, and should be able to host home games soon, the Lanesville Board of School Trustees learned recently.
    The most noticeable improvement to the facility is the addition of lights. The Indiana high School Athletic Association (IHSAA) has recently passed a regulation requiring any school hosting a baseball sectional in any of the four classes to have lights for night games.
    In addition to the new lights, better drainage, new sodding, and new foul poles have been added to the facility.
    Lanesville interim Supt. Sam Gardner said last week that “we hope to play on (the field) in the next week or two.”
    The project has obviously extended well into the month of May, while the high school baseball season starts roughly at the beginning of April.
    “It was a major ‘to do’”. said Supt. Gardner.
    In another matter also related to the facilities of the school, Darrin Duncan represented the Harrison County Storm Water and Sewer District and requested the board approve a demonstration project regarding runoff rain water from the parking lot in front of the high school.
    Gardner said that Lanesville Schools are in the Indian Creek Watershed Area, and in fact the creek runs next to the south side of the school property.
    The project will be to try to prevent erosion, and to test runoff water for pollutants.
    The board didn’t formally sign a contract, but did approve a Memorandum of Understanding agreeing to the project.
    In other business, the board:

Revised the 2009-10 school calendar, because the Indiana General Assembly decided to disallow half days for either professional development or parent-teacher conferences.

Adopted textbooks for social studies (both elementary and junior-senior high).

Read an initial draft on a revision to the corporation’s Transportation Policy.

Accepted a $60.00 donation from the Harrison County Soil and Water Conservation board to the FFA for a scholarship to pay Envirothon entry fees

Accepted a donation of $8,000.00 for a boot camp, from the Harrison County Community Foundation.

Approved a facility use request for use of the parking lot and high school entry way for a Harrison County Health Department Rabies Clinic on May 7, 2009.

Hired Rebecca Klusmeier as a math instructor at the junior-senior high school. She grew up in the general area, and is currently living in Georgia with her husband, who is in the military. She was one of 13 applications, all “top quality”, according to Gardner.

    Any high school kids interested in playing football this season will need to pay a $200 fee to play. The fee includes insurance and your own jersey with your name on the back plus referee fees and some of the cost of the all new equipment. The league needs at least 25 kids to play.
    All kids will get equal playing time.
    Also the league is taking applications for all football coaching positions and are preparing to start all league division sign ups. Kids who want to play but can not afford to play can get someone or a company to sponsor them. The league has those forms available. All kids this year will  participate in the  Borden Youth League Braves With Drug Free Smoke Signals prevention and education program .  
    They are also looking for league sponsors. If you are interested you may also can call league president Rick Cannon at 502?523?2665.

    The North Harrison Girls’ Tennis Team won their 15th consecutive title in the Harrison County Girls’ Tennis Tournament Saturday at the Lanesville courts.
    They won all five individual spots for a perfect score of 25. The host Lanesville squad amassed a score of 11, and Corydon and South Central scored 5 and 4 points respectively, for 3rd and 4th places.
    Despite what looked like dominance by North Harrison, several of the finals matches went to a 3rd set, and North Harrison coach Sheri Shroyer was very happy with the extra effort of her team.
    “We were down in a couple of finals,” said Shroyer. “As far as their effort, and their believing in themselves, they persevered and came back.”
