GREENSBURG – South Dearborn High School graduate and former Knights assistant coach Josh Benjamin was hired as head football coach at North Decatur in February.

Benjamin, 29, who still resides in Moores Hill with wife Helena, an English teacher at Batesville, opens practice with the Chargers Monday, Aug. 4.

“I would definitely consider this a rebuilding year, a learning year, for all of us,” Benjamin told The Greensburg Daily News.

He succeeds Garry Sauley, who resigned after last fall's 2-8 campaign. Sauley posted an 8-12 record in two seasons at the Chargers helm. Plagued by injuries and with dwindling numbers, North Decatur ended last season with just 14 active players.

AURORA – It may have appeared that South Dearborn Middle School football had a mutiny on its hands.

In reality, Monday night’s replacement of the seventh and eighth-grade Squires gridiron coaching staff proved to be a case of several late-summer job changes needing to be filled at once.

Acting at the 11th hour, just shy of the start of SDMS preseason practice Tuesday, the SD School Corporation board approved the hire of Manchester resident Doug Otto as middle school head football coach, with Jason Wessell and Josh Gilb as assistant coaches.

A fourth staff opening is yet to be filled.

WATERLOO, N.Y. – A desire to get back into the classroom – and a coaching job opportunity close to his hometown– is bringing Milan native Michael Bree back to Indiana from the picturesque Finger Lakes district of Upstate New York.

Bree, 37, a 1995 Milan High School graduate, was named girls head basketball coach at South Dearborn May 19, succeeding Bob Bressert, who stepped down as Lady Knights mentor after 14 years (153-148).

Ironically, Bressert since has been hired as the new girls basketball coach at Bree’s alma mater. The Dillsboro native will keep his teaching job at Aurora Elementary School.

SD SOFTBALL WILL LOOK DIFFERENT - 2014 SEASON WRAPUP PDF Print E-mail

AURORA – Having made a strong run these past four springs – including a 45-8 mark the last two seasons, with back-to-back Class 3A semistate appearances and first No. 1 state ranking in school history – South Dearborn softball now looks to the future.

Lady Knights, with head coach Tim Barrett back for a third season, will look completely different in 2015. But that doesn’t mean SD will be any less competitive.

“We graduated seven seniors, six starters, most of whom have played 3-4 years on varsity," said Barrett, voted District Coach of the Year by his peers and an Indiana South All-Stars mentor in the postseason.

“You just don’t replace players like Ellen (Barrett, first-team All-State third baseman, who set 10 SD offensive records), Koop (pitcher Kooper Vertz, third-team All-Stater and 23-2 county co-MVP) and Morgan (Wolfer, fourth-year starter in centerfield, headed for NKU softball this fall).

“They accounted for over 120 RBI from our 3-4-5 spots. So we’re not even going to try and replace them. But all those seniors have set a standard that we’re going to live by from now on.”

ALL-STAR EXPERIENCE FOR SD'S ELLEN BARRETT PDF Print E-mail

Indiana All-Star softball standout Ellen Barrett (center) poses with South All-Star coaches Kathy Stricker, a 37-year veteran at Franklin Central High School, and South Dearborn head coach/dad Tim Barrett, who led the Lady Knights to this year's Class 3A No. 1 ranking, prior to Saturday's ICGSA All-Star Classic at Carmel's Cherry Tree Complex.

CARMEL, Ind. – All-Star games, traditionally, are a postseason reward for a big year, or a standout career.

They're also a whole lot of fun – despite the sometimes less-than-ideal playing conditions, such as drizzly rain and humidity comparable to that in Borneo, as that which accompanied Saturday's 25th annual ICGSA All-Star Classic at Carmel's Cherry Tree Complex.

Ellen Barrett, South Dearborn's first-team All-State third baseman headed for Indiana State University next fall, became the Knights' first state All-Star player since Garrett Saunders (football, 2012) Saturday.

Starting at third base, Barrett went 1-for-3 in the South's 2-0 win in game one of a doubleheader sweep over the North. Playing 11 of 14 innings in the twinbill, the 5'10” slugger also saw action at second base and shortstop in the South's 8-2 nightcap.
