    Of the nine traffic accidents recorded in Scott County for the month of March, seven have involved injuries to 13 people.
    The unlucky streak for motorists began on Wednesday, March 4, with a collision at the intersection of State Road 56 and State Road 203 east of Scottsburg shortly after 8 a.m.
    Drivers were Brantly V. Tomlin, 19, Jeffersonville, and Donald E. Larson Jr., 28, Scottsburg.
    Driver statements taken by Deputy Mark Shapinsky of the Sheriff's Department indicated that Tomlin was making a left turn from S.R. 203 onto westbound S.R. 56. He said he did not see Larson coming east on S.R. 56 in his 2000 Chevy Cavalier. Larson's car hit Tomlin's 1996 Pontiac Bonneville in its left rear side, causing the Cavalier to spin and go off the north side of the highway into a ditch line and overturning.

Warriors redeemed in first round of the sectional PDF Print E-mail

    Madison defeated Scottsburg by seven in their regular season matchup 62-55, and the Warriors felt that they should have won that game, and set out to prove it.
    Defeating Madison would be no easy task, as the Cubs had the home floor, and the bragging rights.
It mattered not for Scottsburg as they came out of the gate on fire from down town, as A.J. Humes and Mason Gregory would drain several early threes.  This would boost Scottsburg to a 10 point halftime lead that would grow in the second half.
    The third quarter was even more lopsided against Madison, as Scottsburg outscored them 17-9, extending their lead even further.  The Cubs had one final run left in them, as they would begin to score in bunches in the fourth.
Scottsburg, too, would score a ton, as both teams would score over 25 points in the final period.
The Warriors were redeemed, winning 76 to 60.  Mason Gregory would be the highlight performer of the night, scoring 28 on six three pointers.  Many fans expected Colt Ryan of Batesville to steal the show, but he scored only 24 as Greensburg upset them in the first game.
    This win would sent the Warriors to their first sectional title game since 2005, as they were set to play Greensburg.

Warriors pick up second non conference win against Panthers PDF Print E-mail

    The second half of the season had been a struggle for the Warriors thus far, especially non-conference games, coming in with only one win out of the Mid-Southern Conference, which came against Southwestern.  Scottsburg knew it would be a tough road ahead, with games against Floyd Central, Jeffersonville, and Mitchell coming after their matchup against the Panthers.
    Scottsburg again started the game well, outscoring Jennings County 18-12 in the first quarter, but dropping off a bit in the second, with the run being 13-17.  Scottsburg would take a 31-29 lead into halftime, hoping that the second half wouldn’t show a major drop-off like it had in recent games.  To their disappointment, the third quarter again wouldn’t go the Warriors way, as Jennings County would take a 45-44 lead into the final period.  Scottsburg went on a tear in the fourth however, scoring a whopping 26 points to take home the 70-59 win, making it their second all season out of conference.
   Once again Max Clemons would lead the team in scoring with 17, as they looked to get some momentum for their game against Floyd Central.
