    When Scottsburg Patrolman Travis L. Rutherford pulled up to a one-car accident on Friday, February 6, near Lake Iola, he was treated to an unusual sight.
    A white Firebird was suspended nearly 90 degrees by means of a guide wire leading to a nearby utility pole. All four of the car’s tires were off the ground, noted. Ptl. Rutherford, and the car was still running and in reverse gear.
Ptl. Rutherford soon learned that no one was inside the car. Some witnesses said a white male ran from the scene.
Efforts by Barger’s Wrecker Service and staff of the Scottsburg Electric Department allowed the vehicle to be lowered to the ground as the electrical crew took down the wire. Ptl. Rutherford learned from the license plate that the car was owned by an Elizabethtown, Ky., man.
    According to the case report on the incident, the officer was able to locate the name of the owner’s employer. That firm was contacted but could give no information except that the man was assumed to be in Scottsburg visiting friends.
No one has come forward yet to claim the car, which was impounded.

    Scottsburg had been on a recent skid, starting the season out 5-1, and since then going 3-5.  Despite their recent struggles as a team, and search to find an identity, they looked to pick up a non-conference win at Southwestern on February 6, to boost the morale.  
     Scottsburg was the clear favorite to win the game, but the Rebels used their home floor advantage to the best of their ability, managing to keep the game close throughout.  The Warriors would never pull out to a hefty lead, as never did deliver the knockout punch.
    The team managed to hang on though as they would win the game 54-48, barely getting over the 50 point mark that has been a tough task several times.
    The Warriors were led in scoring by Matt Bridgewater, who had 15, and freshman Max Clemons with 12, who has stepped up his game since the Warrior loss to New Albany, where he had 15.  Mason Gregory also had 12.
    Mabry would lead Southwestern with 13, and Ames would follow with 12.

?     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.”
