    The girls’ basketball season is winding down, with sectional play beginning this week, and the last regular season week having played out last week. North Harrison defeated Eastern Thursday night by a 57-38 score, in the last home game for the Lady Cats’ eight seniors. The Lady Cats finished the regular season Saturday in a make up game at Brownstown and won 44-43, outlasting the Lady Braves in a battle for the outright winner of the Mid Southern Conference (MSC). North finished with an 8-1 MSC slate, good enough for first place. They finished 18-3 overall.
    In boys’ action, the Lanesville Eagles won a big Southern Athletic Conference contest against the invading New Washington Mustangs, by a 47-46 decision Friday night. And the Floyd Central Highlanders won a runaway 85-27 rout of South Central on the road.

Warriors pick up win at Southwestern PDF Print E-mail

    Scottsburg had been on a recent skid, starting the season out 5-1, and since then going 3-5.  Despite their recent struggles as a team, and search to find an identity, they looked to pick up a non-conference win at Southwestern on February 6, to boost the morale.  
     Scottsburg was the clear favorite to win the game, but the Rebels used their home floor advantage to the best of their ability, managing to keep the game close throughout.  The Warriors would never pull out to a hefty lead, as never did deliver the knockout punch.
    The team managed to hang on though as they would win the game 54-48, barely getting over the 50 point mark that has been a tough task several times.
    The Warriors were led in scoring by Matt Bridgewater, who had 15, and freshman Max Clemons with 12, who has stepped up his game since the Warrior loss to New Albany, where he had 15.  Mason Gregory also had 12.
    Mabry would lead Southwestern with 13, and Ames would follow with 12.

    The Indiana Department of Homeland Security (IDHS) is gathering damage reports from Hoosier citizens, governmental entities and certain private non-profit organizations that sustained damage caused by severe weather beginning January 26.
    Hoosier citizens can report damage online at https://oas.in.gov/hs/damage until February 17. Citizens will be asked to provide their names, addresses, phone numbers, damage to property and type of damage the property sustained. Losses can include structural damage to businesses, homes and loss of personal property.
    Government agencies and private non-profits should contact their local emergency management agency (EMA). To find the contact information for the local EMA, go to www.in.gov/dhs/files/Sanitized_Compact_Directory.pdf.
The Indiana Department of Homeland Security (IDHS) will use the information to help quantify losses from severe weather that resulted in ice, snow and flooding to determine if federal assistance should be requested.
    Individuals will not be in contact with the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA). Information will be used to help local EMAs and IDHS determine if federal assistance can be pursued.
    IDHS, Indiana agencies and partner organizations have been working closely with local emergency management agencies to determine needs that would require support beyond the county level. All local requests have been fulfilled, and no federal assistance has been required to date.
