Boys soccer

The boys soccer team downed Waldron 5-0 on the road Tuesday.

Lucas Pela and Stephen Kakavekos each scored two goals for the Eagles. Isaac Gluesenkamp added one goal, while Spencer Carpenter and Leeland Kesler each earned assists. Goalie Reid Johnson came up with five saves during the contest that raised the Eagles’ record to 9-4-2 on the season.

 

Volleyball

In volleyball, the girls dropped three games to Western Indiana Conference opponent Northview. The loss is the second in a row and lowers the Eagles to 16-5 overall and 4-1 in the WIC.

 

Girls soccer

The girls soccer team beat Greenwood Christian Academy on Monday by a score of 3-1. Chelsea Smith got two in the net, as well as an assist. Rachel Smith added one goal. The win improves the Eagles’ record to 8-5-1.

Next, the girls team plays at Franklin on Thursday. Athletic Director Brian Garman said the start time for the match has been pushed back to 7 p.m.

 

Jr. high cross country

The Brown County junior high cross country teams competed against Edgewood at Eagle Park Monday night. 

The girls lost 24-35, while the boys narrowly defeated the Mustangs in what Coach Thor Davis called, “a most exciting finish.”

For the first time in his coaching career, Davis experienced a tie in a race. The 28-28 score meant officials look at where the sixth runner for each boys team placed. Since Brown County’s sixth man finished in 10th place and Edgewood’s sixth man finished in 11th place, Brown County was declared winner of the race.

Wyatt Wyman placed first in the field of 36 runners. Hunter Durham crossed the finish line in 10th place to secure the victory.

Maddy Fields came in second place to lead the girls.

“Congratulations to both teams for another fine effort last night,” commented Davis.
