South Putnam football schedule change; headed east again

Back in Week 3 South Putnam football traveled to Henry County for a 29-6 win at Tri.  That came as North Putnam was closing schools for a stretch of days and calling off extracurricular events due to  Covid-19.

 

South Putnam will head east again, this time to Hancock County.  This Friday's road trip will be to Eastern Hancock (3-1) after the regularly scheduled game with Edgewood was cancelled.

 

Eastern Hancock was available because the Royals game with neighboring Knightstown was cancelled.

 

Kickoff for South Putnam at Eastern Hancock will be at 7:00 pm.

Tiger Cubs open '21 football campaign with first year starters, vets at new positions

Greencastle football has posted winning seasons in four of the past five.  But this season opens with a number of first year starters and veterans who are filling new roles due to graduation and injury.  That includes the loss of the projected starting quarterback.

 

Head coach Mike Meyer talks with GIANT fm Sports about the season that opens tonight at Crawfordsville.

The South Putnam football team suffered just one loss in 2020.  The eventual 1A state champs from Covenant Christian eliminated the Eagles in the regional, 48-7.  

 

Now, what to do for an encore.  2020 marked the most wins since an 11-2 record in 2013.  And it was the first above -.500 season since 2015.

 

South Putnam is ranked ninth in the preseason 1A poll.

Greencastle hopes to have football turf ready for Week 3 home opener

High school football season is quickly approaching.  So is the deadline for the school to have the field ready for the home opener.

The good news for Greencastle is that the Tiger Cubs don’t host a game until Week 3 with West Vigo. 

Athletic Director Doug Greenlee says the project is taking steps in the right direction.

  Greenlee says West Vigo is on notice just in case something should need changed.

It’s not just what’s on top with the turf.  It’s what’s below that will bring major improvement to Harbison Stadium.

Greenlee says this is just one of several projects that are planned to bring major improvements to Greencastle athletics.

IHSAA and Hudl announce partnership to revolutionize video and data exchange

The Indiana High School Athletic Association (IHSAA) and Hudl are partnering to transform athletic departments, coaches, and athletes throughout the state of Indiana.

Over 130 high school athletic departments and 3,000 teams in the state are already using Hudl’s video, data and recruiting tools. Between Hudl Focus cameras and the implementation of statewide member school exchanges, Hudl and the IHSAA are working together to stay on the cutting edge with a first-of-its-kind partnership that will fulfill that promise of universal access to video and data – and ultimately give new insights and time back to teams to focus on their development.

“We are excited to bring this first-of-its-kind partnership with the Indiana High School Athletic Association,” said Greg Nelson, Vice President of Competitive at Hudl. “Our goal is to provide the technology for coaches, athletes and their athletic departments to perform at their best.”

 

 

Hudl is a leading performance analysis company revolutionizing the way coaches and athletes prepare for and stay ahead of the competition. Founded in 2006, Hudl offers a complete suite of products that empower more than 180,000 global sports teams at every level – from grassroots to professional organizations – to gather insights with video and data. Hudl’s products and services include online tools, mobile and desktop apps, smart cameras, analytics, professional consultation and more.

“The IHSAA is excited to have Hudl as a corporate partner in advancing education-based athletics through their cutting edge technology,” said IHSAA Commissioner Paul Neidig. “With the continued growth of livestreaming and broadcasting, member schools will be able to make access to video effortless for both teams and fans. The Hudl Focus camera system integrates seamlessly with the IHSAA Champions Network and IHSAAtv.org to provide a high definition livestream option for both member schools and fans.”

Hudl’s suite of video capture and analysis technologies will provide Indiana schools with everything they need to power their high school athletic programs. Hudl Focus, Hudl’s newest camera technology, is an auto-tracking camera that provides teams with HD video without requiring a cameraperson. Smart camera technology and livestreaming is in demand now more than ever; providing the ability for athletic directors to monetize their games while providing broader access to community fans.

Additionally, all game in Hudl Focus-equipped stadiums – whether you’re home, away or at a neutral site – will be automatically uploaded to your Hudl library with the Focus Exchange Network. This innovative use of technology will allow IHSAA schools to stay on the cutting edge by making access to video effortless for teams and fans.

Member schools in the IHSAA are encouraged to participate in a member school video exchange through Hudl for football, basketball and volleyball.

Parke County's Cecil M. Harden Lake stocked with striped bass

DNR recently completed its annual stocking of striped bass and hybrid striped bass across several lakes in Indiana.

DNR staff stocked more than 125,000 2-inch striped bass fingerlings in four southern Indiana public lakes and more than 134,000 2-inch hybrid striped bass fingerlings in nine lakes throughout the state. The stockings met or exceeded DNR’s 2021 stocking goals for the two species.

Striped and hybrid striped bass were stocked in 11 lakes including over 40, 000 into the Cecil M. Harden Lake in Parke County.

Indiana does not have the native sources to spawn striped and hybrid striped bass. DNR relies on commercial sources and state partners to supply fry for its hatchery system. In 2021, East Fork State Fish Hatchery staff developed a new relationship with the Jack D. Bayless Fish Hatchery in St. Stephen, South Carolina. The hatchery supplied Indiana with 500,000 striped bass fry. Good conditions in the hatchery ponds resulted in a surplus of fingerlings.

The fish stocked in 2021 should reach a fishable size of 14 inches in 2023 and begin to exceed 20 inches in 2024. Thanks to stockings like this, Indiana anglers can look forward to continued quality striped and hybrid striped bass fishing opportunities.

Greencastle finished 6-5 during the Covid-impacted 2020 season by winning the final three games of the regular season and shutting out Indianapolis Washington to open the sectional, 44-0.  The Tiger Cubs were eliminated in the next round by Tri-West. 

 

A 3-2 record in the Western Indiana Conference was good for a third place finish.

Brach Carrington rushed for a team leading 966 yards and 17 touchdowns. 

 

Defensively, Brach led the team with 20 sacks, 93 total tackles, 28 were tackles for loss.  He played in the North-South All-Star game.

 

Senior Grant Pettit recorded 78 tackles with 17 behind the line of scrimmage.  He had 11 sacks.

The home opener is scheduled for September 3 with West Vigo.  Work continues to renovate the football field and surrounding track at Greencastle.
