    The Floyd Central girls’ tennis team fell 5-0 to the Terre Haute South squad at Saturday’s semi state at Jasper High School.
    The Lady Highlanders feature a squad in which six of the seven varsity players had never played a varsity match until the season started back in April.
    Volunteer Assistant Coach Brandon Miller said, “I thought we played really competitive. For us, being in the final 16 teams in the State of Indiana is a huge accomplishment for us. If anything, the girls’ overachieved.”
    Throughout the season, the team has found a way to come up with whatever was needed in the way of effort. Even if one of the five positions wasn’t having their best day, someone usually pulled through.
    “When we needed it most, we played our best,” Miller said.
    Miller was proud of the work and effort that the team put into playing the game of tennis.
    “They put a lot of time and effort into it,” he added.
    At the no. 1 singles spot, South’s Hunter Bullock def. Carmen Schreiber 6-1, 6-0. At the no. 2 singles position, Floyd’s Sandra McCaffrey was def. by South’s Taylor Bullock 6-1, 6-3, and in the no. 3 singles spot, South’s Maddie Kessler def. Annie Hunt 6-0, 6-0.
    In the doubles spots, South’s top duo of Mallory Matheny and Emma Bilyeu won 7-5, 7-5 over Chelsea Burch and Chelsey Shackelford, and at the no. 2 spot, Alexis Summers and Easha Purohit won 6-2, 6-2 over Floyd’s duo of Kayla Oldham and Emily Wimbec.
    Floyd Central ended the season with a 15-6 record.

    On Thursday, May 28 at approximately 6:30 p.m. the Floyd County Police Department received a call regarding a head-on injury crash on SR 111 near Gap Hollow Road. The Floyd County Combined Accident Reconstruction Team (CART) was called to the scene to assist with the investigation.     
    The Floyd County CART Team was formed in July 2007 by Floyd County Prosecutor to investigate all fatal crashes and crashes which result in serious bodily injury that may result in death or the potential for the filing of criminal charges. CART Members have additional training in crash reconstruction and scene diagramming.
    The preliminary investigation shows that a Ford Probe driven by Atom McConnell, age 16, of Brooks, Kentucky was traveling north on SR 111 when it crossed the center line and struck a southbound Ford Explorer driven by Tornya Kelton-Nunley, age 41, of Jeffersonville. McConnell was transported to Kosair Children’s Hospital with severe injuries to his legs and is listed in serious condition. Kelton-Nunley was transported to the University of Louisville Hospital with injuries to her chest and is listed in good condition. McConnell’s 13 year old brother, Austin McConnell was a passenger in his vehicle and was transported to Kosair Children’s Hospital. His condition is also listed as serious. None of the injuries are believed to be life-threatening.
    Occupants of both vehicles were wearing seat belts which is believed to have reduced their injuries. It is not believed at this time that alcohol was a factor in the crash. SR 111 was closed for approximately two hours during the on-scene investigation. This investigation is continuing.
    Assisting agencies included: Floyd County Police Department, New Albany Police Department, Indiana State Police, Yellow Ambulance, and New Chapel Fire Department.

    On May 21, Charlestown Reserve Officer Josh Campbell received an anonymous tip by a local business employee that there was possible drug activity taking place on the premises.  
    Upon Officer Campbell’s arrival he met with an employee who advised that a female had entered the business to purchase an item. While attempting to pay for the item the female dumped out her purse in order to obtain additional monies when a bag of approximately 3.1 grams of suspected crack cocaine fell out of her purse and onto the counter.  
    The employee explained to Officer Campbell that the female (who was later identified as 26 year-old Ruth E. Daulton of Charlestown), had not immediately discovered that the substance had fallen out of her purse until she went to leave the business in her car. The employee explained to Officer Campbell that Daulton began to search her vehicle and purse for the item when Police were called.
    Daulton was confronted by Officer Campbell in the business parking lot. By this time K-9 Officer Adam Clark and Sgt. Darren Baker arrived to assist. Subsequent to Officer Campbell’s investigation Daulton was arrested and charged with A-Felony Possession of a Narcotic Drug and A-Felony Intent to Deal in Cocaine or a Narcotic Drug.  
    This case is still under investigation, if you have any additional information regarding this case you are encouraged to call Charlestown Police Department at 812-256-6345. All callers can remain anonymous.
