PENDLETON – East Central softball had to be encouraged when it played No. 4-ranked (Class 4A) rival Pendleton Heights to a 7-4 loss on the Arabians' home turf last Wednesday, April 9.

“We jumped out early and we hit well,” said first-year EC head coach Shannon Wullenweber, whose Lady Trojan varsity took a 4-3 lead into the bottom of the fifth inning.

Heights plated two runs to take a 5-4 advantage in the bottom of the inning, and went on to add two more in the sixth for the three-run victory.

East Central threatened in the top of the seventh, getting two runners on base, but was unable to capitalize.

CONNERSVILLE – After seeing its first three scheduled games postponed due to rain,

East Central softball got started with a 21-9, six-inning EIAC win at Connersville Tuesday, April 8.

New coach Shannon Wullenweber's Lady Trojans rapped out 20 hits and took advantage of Spartan miscues to get the easy win for hurler Hannah Sprague.

Connersville, however, put up an early 5-0 lead before EC came roaring back, rallying for nine runs in the top of the second inning, never to trail again.

ST. LEON – East Central girls tennis swept to a windy 5-0 varsity win over visting Simon Kenton (Ky.) in its delayed season opener last Friday.

Coach Scott Kluener’s Lady Trojans posted straight-sets victories in four of the five varsity positions under less-than-ideal weather conditions.

Last Wednesday’s scheduled opener against Notre Dame Academy of Northern Kentucky was scratched because of rain.

“Though it felt like football weather, with heavy winds, the girls stayed strong and mentally tough,” said Kluener. “They came away with a great victory to begin the season.”

 
EC grew against state’s 29th-toughest schedule PDF Print E-mail

ST. LEON – Pop quiz. You're facing Indiana's 29th-toughest high school basketball schedule with only two starters back – both of them injured.
It's two weeks before the start of the season. One starter you'll get back, but the other never returns. What do you do? What do you do?

That's the exact situation – excluding the “Speed”-type bus and exploding device - met by East Central boys basketball to start its 2013-14 season last November.

Basically, coach David Disbro's Trojans had no choice but to tip off the season by elevating the lineup from coach Steve Lewis' 12-6 reserve team from the year before, making them instant varsity starters.

ST. LEON – East Central baseball graduated eight seniors from last year’s 19-9 Class 4A sectional and conference runner-up team.
Five of those graduates are playing college baseball this spring. So Coach Bob Reynolds’ Trojans should be decimated by losing all that talent and experience. Right?

Not so fast, folks. As anyone who’s watched the Trojans go through 2-3 talent cycles knows, no matter how shaky things may look in April, you usually can count on EC to be there by the end of May.

ST. LEON – East Central softball returned to its past glories last season, finishing 18-9 with its 19th Eastern Indiana Athletic Conference championship in 22 years.

So it came as somewhat of a surprise when third-year head coach Heather Zins (54-30), the former Trojan and NKU star, announced her resignation last fall to spend more time with her young family.

He averaged 11.0 points and 3.0 rebounds per game overall for Coach David Disbro's 9-14 Trojans, who finished third in the EIAC standings with a 4-3 record.

Greensburg 6'3” senior Bryant McIntosh, the No. 1-ranked Pirates’ point guard headed to Northwestern, won his second-straight conference MVP award as the top vote-getter in EIAC coaches' polling.

ST. LEON – Some controversial officiating calls – or the dreaded non-calls - in a 58-55 Class 4A sectional loss to Bloomington South deprived East Central girls basketball of the storybook finish it hoped this season.

In a second-straight 17-4 season, Lady Trojans’ on-court accomplishments were plentiful, however.

Coach Kevin Moore’s fifth-year program (67-37) set 14 new school records while coming within six points (54-48) of No. 4-ranked (3A) Rushville for yet another conference title.

“Coming off a nearly perfect summer, we knew we had the chance to be pretty good - considering the makeup of our team in terms of depth, athleticism, playing hard and having great cohesiveness,” said Moore.

“Back-to-back 17-4 seasons is definitely something to be proud of. You look at the losses we took, and throwing out that Columbus North game (85-43 blowout), we had leads in the fourth quarter in those (other three) games.”
