    After experiencing an up-and-down season with a decidedly winning season record of 12-5 (as of February 12), the Austin Eagles under Coach Mike Deaton are looking at a tough boys' 2A sectional in Paoli.
    Brownstown's Braves are the heavies in this sectional, having compiled a perfect season and ranked no. 1 in 2A teams in the state. Austin is ranked 11th, not bad for the teams the boys have faced this season.
    “We've got a very competitive sectional ahead of us. Eastern's playing well, and Providence played New Albany well recently. In fact, you look at all of the teams in this sectional and they're all pretty equal with Brownstown maybe a step or two ahead,” advised Coach Deaton.
    The teams in this sectional include Paoli, Austin, Eastern, Clarksville, Providence, Brownstown and West Washington. The boys' draw took place on Sunday, February 21.

    The talk before the finals of the Class AAA Sectional 30 finals last Tuesday (Feb. 16) was that if Charlestown gets to the free throw line they would probably win. They have done well from the free throw line all year, and have continued to do well in the sectional tournament.
    Alicia Zollman was at the line with 7.1 seconds left in the game and het Lady Pirates clinging to a slim 45-43 lead. The senior calmly sank both free throws and gave the team their final 47-43 margin of victory.
    “That was clutch,” said Charlestown coach Tony Hall of the Zollman free throws.
    Crawford County’s Chelsea Jellison had just gotten her Lady Pack to within 45-42 when she swished a three with 11.2 left. Both teams took separate time outs immediately after the Jellison three, setting up the finals free throws by Zollman.
