Student Athletes

first_imgI know you have read several blogs about the academic achievements of local athletes.  Two-time state champ, Curtis Eckstein, was one of the top graduates recently at Oldenburg Academy.  Mary  & Sarah Poltrack were top students at BHS as well as record breakers in track and cross county.  If you read the Herald Tribune’s tribute to Batesville, East Central, and Oldenburg Academy’s top students, you will notice that a lot of them not only excelled in the classroom but on the athletic field as well.For many years Batesville High School, a 4-star scholastic school system, has had more Academic All-State athletes per student population than any other high school in the state of Indiana.  Too many media outlets want to jump on athletes who get in trouble.  It is much nicer to write about those who quietly go about excelling in everything they do.last_img read more

Fall Football

first_imgMost schools in the area will be in full swing in the next week or two with fall sports.  All of our area football teams begin this Friday night.  The EIAC should be as competitive as ever.  East Central is returning from a state championship and some think that they may be even better this year!  Lawrenceburg graduated a large senior class but their younger teams were very strong.  That should make Lawrenceburg strong this year at the varsity level.  Franklin County, under new coach Wes Gillman, has doubled their team size from last year. Even though they graduated running back Orschell, they will be under a veteran quarterback.  You can bet Wes Gillman will open his offensive playbook.The rest of the EIAC will not be slouches, either.  The Batesville Bulldogs have quarterback Trey Heidlage and should have a wide open offense.  You can bet Greensburg will have that power running game behind their usual big offensive line.  They have the ability to eat up the clock with that running game.The other 3 schools in the EIAC are still in some type of rebuilding program.  South Dearborn and Connersville should both be improved this year, and Rushville who has not been competitive the last few years, is under a new coaching system.Milan may be a bit young, but they should be a very competitive team sooner than later.  Oldenburg Academy is under a new coach in Eric Feller, and he should bring a lot of enthusiasm to the program.  Coach Stirn at North Decatur lost several of his top players, but you can bet they will be competitive also.last_img read more
