The EIAC Today

first_imgAs you know, the EIAC has expanded to 8 teams.  For most sports, all 8 schools will compete for one title.  Right now football is split into a 4A division and a 3A division.   According to unconfirmed sources, this was brought about because East Central did not want to compete in several sports against Lawrenceburg with football heading the list.  Likewise, it has been said that Lawrenceburg wanted to drop out of the EIAC if they still had to play East Central in every sport.  One thing is certain–the 4A and 3A split for football was not unanimous among all coaches.  I have not been able to confirm how this was finally decided upon.  What it has left the conference with is a football division of East Central, Connersville, South Dearborn, and Franklin County.  The 3A portion is made up of Batesville, Greensburg, Rushville, and Lawrenceburg.  At this time, basketball will be just one division, but there will not be a home and away round robin.  I do believe, however, that each school will face each other this year.  Those sports who decide the conference in head-to-head contests include basketball, football, volleyball, baseball, softball, soccer and tennis.  Sports like track, swimming, cross country, and wrestling will have a one-day meet to determine the champion.  As the year evolves, we will have to see if they have made any other exceptions to who plays who.last_img read more

By: Lucy Meyer, 4th grade student, St. Louis SchoolFourth Grade SLS students do fun activities to celebrate Indiana’s statehood!  On December 11, 2018, the 4th grade students participated by making play dough sculptures of Indiana. We also made a tin punch of Indiana, stamp drawing, pin the star on Indianapolis, and a Kahoot! about facts of Indiana. Parents came to help with the party too! The cross stitch was many kids’ favorite. Leigh Walmsley said that her favorite station was the tin punch because it was loud! A large amount of people liked making whirly gigs and had fun playing with them. It was a great day for a celebration! **This content was provided completely by St. Louis Catholic School students Photo: (L-R) Griffin Koester, Carson Hartwell, Andrea Meyer (parent helper), Avery Austin, Grace Gutzwiller, and Leigh Walmsleylast_img read more

Tiara aiming for Tingle Creek crown

first_img Press Association “It absolutely poured down so he hated the ground, anyway, but when he returned we found out he just wasn’t quite right. “Noel (Fehily) is such a great horseman and they seem to suit each other down to the ground. “As Special Tiara is such a fluent jumper he doesn’t need much instruction and Noel lets him get on with it. “The fact Un De Sceaux isn’t running might mean we get an easy lead, but even though people say we have to lead that’s not true. “He didn’t make all (the running) at Sandown, and when he won his Grade One as a novice at Aintree, Bryan Cooper realised Overturn wanted to lead so he let him go on. “It’s more important he gets into a rhythm with his jumping than leading, and that is normally a case of if the ground is too soft or not.” The race has lost a little of its lustre with Simonsig ruled out with lameness. The grey, twice a winner at the Cheltenham Festival, was all set for his first run over fences since the 2013 Arkle Trophy having returned from over two years off with a fine run over hurdles at Aintree last month. Trainer Nicky Henderson told Press Association Sport: “Simonsig is not running, he’s lame. He was OK, Barry (Geraghty) came in and rode him and he schooled, but unfortunately he is lame tonight. I honestly don’t know why – it is so, so cruel. I’m desperately sorry for Ronnie (Bartlett, owner), he has waited over two years to get him here. Henry de Bromhead’s well-backed charge won the Celebration Chase over this course and distance in April but tailed off on his reappearance in the Fortria Chase. Owner Sally Rowley-Williams said: “He wasn’t 100 per cent the last time he ran. Connections of Special Tiara are looking for further Grade One glory when he takes in the Betfair Tingle Creek Chase at Sandown. “He schooled this morning and he was fine. It’s horrible, especially given we had got a prep run into him that had gone so well.” It is a further blow for the race, with Un De Sceaux ruled out by Willie Mullins on Wednesday, when he was described as a “little flat”. Henderson will still be represented in the Grade One showpiece by Josses Hill. last_img read more

WBB : Shooting struggles continue in loss to Oklahoma

first_img Facebook Twitter Google+ Quentin Hillsman knows what doomed his Syracuse team in its loss to Oklahoma on Monday. It’s the same shortcoming that has troubled the Orange time and time again this season.And the SU head coach is starting to feel like a broken record trying to explain his team’s Achilles heel.‘We got to make shots. There’s not really too many ways to keep phrasing that,’ Hillsman said in a phone interview. ‘We’re getting shots, we got to make shots. I think we took 69 shots tonight, that’s a lot of shots. We got to make sure that we make them.’Syracuse (8-4, 0-1 Big East) failed to connect on enough shots to keep pace with Oklahoma in a blowout loss, falling 82-63 at the Duel in the Desert in Las Vegas. The Orange shot 27.5 percent from the field — making just 19-of-69 shot attempts — while the Sooners (6-3) caught fire, shooting 44.1 percent from the field and 55.6 percent from 3-point range. For Hillsman, the heavily slanted numbers on the stat sheet effectively explain his team’s loss.SU will try to bounce back in its third and final game at the tournament in Las Vegas when it takes on Ohio (6-6) on Tuesday at 3 p.m.AdvertisementThis is placeholder textThe Orange found itself playing from behind all game due to its shooting struggles, hitting 1-of-8 from the field to start the game. The Orange fell behind 11-2 just four minutes into the first half and was never able to cut into the Sooners’ commanding lead. SU went into halftime down by 12.‘When you dig a hole against a team like that, it’s tough to fight out because they’re a very good basketball team and they’re very disciplined,’ Hillsman said. ‘It’s a situation of when you get yourself in a hole like that you have to find a way to fight out of it and we just didn’t do it tonight.’Oklahoma’s disciplined approach on offense proved to be an effective one. Guard Morgan Hook led the Sooners with 21 points, forward Joanna McFarland added 19, and Aaryn Ellenberg chipped in with 16 of her own. The backcourt tandem of Hook and Ellenberg shot a scorching 8-of-11 from beyond the arc to help build and maintain OU’s sizable lead.Hillsman said the Sooners spread the Orange out on defense, making it tough to get to their shooters on the perimeter. And the head coach said they were patient, often knocking down the big 3s with the shot clock winding down.The Sooners trio of scorers came out of the break and keyed a 9-2 run that expanded their lead to 55-36 nearly four minutes into the second half. The run put an end to any prayer for a comeback for SU as the Orange shot 7-of-31 from the field.Hillsman said SU centers Kayla Alexander and Shakeya Leary, who combined to shoot 6-of-18 from the field for 13 points, were bothered by the formidable presence of Oklahoma’s frontcourt of the 6-foot-3 McFarland and 6-foot-6 center Nicole Griffin.With the inside game neutralized, SU’s guards got open looks. But as Hillsman said, the shooting woes continued and they couldn’t knock down the shots to get back into the game.‘We need to make shots again. We’re getting up-and-down in these games where we’re not making shots,’ he said. ‘I thought the kids really really played hard and competed but obviously, you have to make shots to win a basketball game.’rjgery@syr.edu Published on December 19, 2011 at 12:00 pm Contact Ryne: rjgery@syr.educenter_img Commentslast_img read more
