No. 2-ranked Huskies shot 322-324 for a two-round total of 646, earning Evansville North’s first girls golf state title, the school’s third in any sport. North claimed the boys golf state crown in 2000.

 
DECIDING BUCK TAG CAN BE TOUGH - OUTDOORS WITH DON COLUMN PDF Print E-mail

CENTRAL INDIANA - There are, unquestionably, more deer in Indiana today than there were 50 years ago.

But there are certainly fewer deer here now than there were 10 years ago.

Still, lots of Hoosier hunters choose to let buck after buck pass by, waiting for something special. That decision is a difficult one and varies dramatically from one hunter to the next.

A deer that would be considered the trophy of a lifetime by some hunters might barely get a glance by others.

Tips of the Week

“Promoting education based athletics throughout Indiana”

 

The NFL season is off to a rocky start because of the domestic violence cases hovering over the league.

This is putting pressure on team owners to make sure that the players they employ are law-abiding citizens who respect the laws and morals of this great country.

The dynamics of all athletics are changing right before our eyes. All of a sudden character counts.

The sad thing is character should always count.

Trivia

Q: The St. Louis Cardinals rallied to defeat the Dodgers 3-2 to win their National League Divisional Series 3-1 in games for a fourth-straight year Tuesday night. What's the record for a team appearing in the most consecutive league championship series?

A: See below.

 

Today in …

1934 – The St. Louis Cardinals capture Game Seven of the World Series, drubbing the Tigers 11-0 at Navin Field in Detroit. With the score 9-0 in the sixth inning, Joe (Ducky) Medwick of the Cards slides hard into Detroit third baseman Marv Owen and the two grapple briefly. When Medwick takes his defensive position in left field in the bottom of the inning, angry fans pelt him with bottles and garbage. Tigers sold the seats in the left field bleachers on an unreserved general admission basis, with many fans having arrived early to obtain choice seats - and bringing their lunches. Remnants of those meals, including apple cores, banana peels and chicken bones, provide much of the ammunition. Faced with the possibility of a riot with St. Louis holding a nine-run lead, Commissioner Kenesaw Mountain Landis orders Medwick removed from the game "for his own safety."

 

Birthdays

Bears middle linebacker Mike Singletary, born 1958. Bengals defensive back Solomon Wilcots, born 1964.


TRIVIA ANSWER:

A: The Atlanta Braves made eight consecutive National League Championship Series appearances between 1991-99, not including the players' strike season of 1994, when there were no playoffs. Braves won five times to advance to the World Series.

AURORA - Batesville captured its 23rd IHSAA boys tennis sectional championship with an easy 5-0 win over Oldenburg Academy in the Saturday morning chill at South Dearborn.

Bulldogs (17-4) followed up on their 18th boys tennis conference championship earlier this season by earning a team state tournament regional berth opposite New Castle (7-9) tonight (Tuesday) at Richmond.

EIAC rival Franklin County (11-4), Connersville sectional winner Saturday, takes on host Richmond (11-9) in the other regional semifinal. Winners meet in the title match Wednesday.

Batesville advanced past Oldenburg's Twisters with little problem Saturday. Beau Brown, Blake Walsman and Ben Schwettman all were straight-sets singles winners, dropping only four games between them.

INDIANAPOLIS - Indiana High School Athletic Association's proposal to tweak the current boys and girls basketball state tournament formats has been put on hold - for now.

During its monthly meeting last Thursday, IHSAA executive committee unanimously voted to table the basketball tournament proposal until its next meeting, Friday, Nov. 7.

The proposal, presented in August, calls for the largest 64 schools to make up Class 4A with the remaining schools evenly distributed among Class 3A, 2A and 1A.
