    The Charlestown Pirate Baseball team (11-4 / 4-1 MSC) completed a very important step in their quest for a conference title Monday night, May 4, when traveling to MSC/County rival Silver Creek (6-10/1-4 MSC) and winning.  The Pirates, committing only two errors, scored seven runs on ten hits and convincingly handed the home standing Dragons a 7-3 defeat to move within a game and a half of first place in the  Mid Southern Conference baseball race.
    The Pirates will host the Austin Eagles (5-1 MSC), who just dropped their first MSC game to Salem, tomorrow in a pivotal conference game.
     Pirate Seniors Vest, Brady, and Metzger all contributed doubles to secure the victory, while Metzger got the win on the mound to improve his record to 3 wins and 1 loss on the season. 
    "A good win tonight!  Cameron threw the ball very well tonight and was in command of all of his pitches.  Our offense did a good job of coming to life when we needed it and our defense played pretty well.  Overall, it was a real nice win," commented Coach Ricky Romans after the game.
     All Pirate fans are encouraged to attend tomorrow night's home game versus Austin, 5 p.m. at the Charlestown Little League Park, and cheer Pirate baseball on their quest for their first MSC title since 1987.

Local teams compete in rain drenched North Harrison Invitational Track Meet PDF Print E-mail

    The North Harrison Invitational Track Meet must have seemed more like a swim meet Friday afternoon to the athletes from the participating schools.
    Several times, rain delayed the action, sending athletes scurrying for shelter from the rain. Several tents had been set up on the outside of the track fence, giving some added protection from the rain.
    The meet even saw a total of 10 events, five in the girls’ division, and five in the boys’ division, canceled because of the conditions.
    Both the boys’ and girls’ pole vault and long jump was canceled, accounting for four events.
    “Those events just didn’t (go ahead) because of the conditions,” said North Harrison boys’ coach Joe Kellum. “There’s nothing you can do about it, it just happens.”
    Also, both the girls’ and boys’ divisions of three different relay races were erased, accounting for a total of six more events altogether. Canceled were the freshman 1600 meter relay, the varsity 1600 meter relay, and the varsity 800 meter relay.
    Even so, each division crowned a champion, even though detailed results and team scores were unavailable at the time of writing.
    Brownstown’s Lady Braves won the girls’ division, and host North Harrison won the boys’ title for the Cougars.

    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.
