?   The Scottsburg High School wrestling team enters this season with several key members returning to action looking to improve on last year’s results.
    The Warriors return four wrestlers that qualified for regionals last year and two of those wrestlers have been named to the preseason rankings.
    Juniors Tanner Howard and Nick Henderson both have garnered some preseason attention as both sit in the top 15 of their weight classes. Howard enters the season ranked no. 9 at 145 pounds and Henderson no. 13 at 171 pounds. Head Coach Tyson Skinner stated, “The preseason rankings are nice, but there will be a lot of changes to them after the season gets going. Both our guys are ranked based on last year and this summer, but both will be moving up a weight, so we will have to wait and see how everything pans out.”

?Lady Pirates take season opener over Crawford County 62-58 PDF Print E-mail

?    After finally a chance to see your team in action against someone other than itself, what Charlestown coach Tony Hall saw on Saturday was pleasing for the most part, as the Pirates turned back Crawford County 62-58 at Bill Dunn Sports Arena.
    Charlestown (1-0) showed a bit of everything. They opened a large lead, let that slip away and then came back with timely free throw shooting and defense.
    “We didn’t win this game with any big offensive flurry at the end,” Hall said. “We won it with defense and it takes guts to play defense. We had a couple of girls, Brittany Bennison and Morgan Allen, really show some guts down the stretch tonight.”
