Rock Creek takes Braves PDF Print E-mail

    Rock Creek came to Borden having both lost season-opening games and both were in search of a victory Saturday (Nov. 28). Rock Creek ended up being the team that left Borden with a 71-62 win.
    Borden came in the first quarter pushing the pace up trying to minimize the impact of Rock Creeks size. Rock Creek had the inside size with  6’6’ Dontale Mayes and 6’4” Joe Pearson who were both tall and big. Borden managed to neutralize Rock Creek’s size with quickness and keeping the ball out of the middle.      
    Dalton Wagoner and Jacob Rich put up nine points inside using their quickness. Rock Creek’s answer came from Ethan Hawn working from a guard position putting up eight points. Rock Creek lead the first quarter 15 - 13.
    In the second quarter Rock Creek switched defenses to a full court press and a zone. The press had little effect but the zone slowed the game down. It minimized Borden’s slashing drives and slowed the ball movement down. Jon Ashby scored Rock Creek’s only 3-point shot of the game while the scoring was spread among five players for the quarter.

    Forty-two local charitable organizations got good news Monday, November 30 when they received grants from the Community Foundation of Southern Indiana. The organizations, which serve residents of Clark, Floyd and Harrison counties, were recognized at the Community Foundation’s annual grant event at Kye’s in Jeffersonville.
    A total of $108,000 was awarded to 42 Southern Indiana organizations, said CFSI program officer Melissa Weissinger. The funding came from the Community Foundation’s Community Endowment Fund. A total of $285,711 was requested through 63 grant applications. “Last year, we increased the maximum amount available through individual grants from $2,500 to $5,000, and that generated more applications,” Weissinger said. “We saw a comparable amount of applications again this year. Clearly, the economy continues to impact the community. More people need help, and these organizations do important work that directly deals with these challenges. We are gratified that we can make a contribution.”
    Grant proposals were considered by a committee of 22 dedicated volunteers, who spent many hours making initial evaluations and then following up with applicants, including site visits, phone interviews and other work meant to ensure the committee had all of the details necessary to decide which grants to fund. The volunteers evaluated each application based on how many people will be affected by the funding, along with other criteria.

    Coming off a three game losing streak, and finding themselves at the bottom of the MSC race, the Scottsburg Warriorettes looked to right the ship against the visiting New Washington Lady Mustangs.  Scottsburg got back on the right foot as they played a solid game to defeat New Washington by a score of 67-59, on Saturday, November 28.
The nights action opened up in Scottsburg’s favor, as they jumped out to a quick 8-2 lead over New Washington.  The Lady Mustangs seemed to have no answer for the Warriorettes’ post presence as they were dominated on the offensive boards, giving Scottsburg several second chance points.  Nearing the end of the quarter the Warriorettes had opened up a nine point lead and looked to be in control of the entire game.  However, the Lady Mustangs fought to keep it close as they cut the lead to only five at the end of the quarter 17-12.
