Southern Indiana success

We take a look today at the Floyd Central Highlanders girls' basketball team. To say they are having a pretty good year would be an understatement. Currently, they are 18-1 and coming off a win vs. Jennings Country.

In the USA Today poll, they are ranked 21st in the nation. That poll, dubious as it may be...(California teams hold four out of the five top spots) recognizes what Highlander fans have been saying all season. This team is a top contender for the Indiana High School championship title in their division.

Ah yes, the trials and tribulations of "class" basketball. Created to provide a level playing field, a chance for schools to win titles against similiar sized institutions and confuse the casual basketball observer. A necessary evil in high school sports today but somehow we made it thru without it when I was on the hardwood.

The Highlanders are led by Morgan Rockstool and Jennifer Smith. Smith recently put up some great numbers against Meade County. 22 points, 11 rebounds and four blocks.
Angel McCoughtry like.

The Highlanders take on Providence in Clarksville Saturday. If you haven't seen a girls high school hoops game in a while, you owe it to yourself to get out and support the local action. Sonja and I have had the pleasure of seeing college stars Monique Reid, Tia Gibbs, Adia Mathies and Ceria Ricketts over the last couple of years when they were still playing in high school.

Good luck the rest of the way, Highlanders.

    (Who's your mama?)

    Hey, does Walz have any of these Hoosier Mama's on the radar?

    Providence HS is right down the street from us. I may have to go catch that game....

    See what all the ruckus is about with these Highlander Hoosier Mamas.
