The HERricanes, a 14 and under all star softball team that contains members from the North Harrison, Salem, Silver Creek, Corydon Central, and South Central high school districts, is headed to the July 26-August 2 USSSA World Series in Orlando, Florida.

Despite the impending trip south, head coach Troy Sanders is calmly watching the team practice with assistant coaches Tony Shutters, Travis McAfee, and Steve Wooldridge.

As Sanders described the assistant coaches, “They’re a huge help to me. They run practice, and allow me to coach.”
Sanders said he likes to sometimes just sit and observe his hard working girls in action during practices, in order to better size up the team’s strengths and weaknesses.

     All minutes and claims were approved with all members present.
     Kim Thurston reported the financial report to the board.
     According to Thurston the current tax billing is not available yet and the school may need to borrow $500,000 from the general fund, but are expected to collect more than that amount.
     Due to so many legislative changes the 2009 budget will be very high.
     “We want to be high, the state will usually cut us and will never increase our budget.” stated Dr. Reed.
