By

At a recent boys’ basketball game at BHS, the senior swimmers at Batesville High School were recognized.  There were 6 young men and 1 young lady in this group.  It was quite an impressive resume for these swimmers.  I think all but one of the boys has been a state qualifier, and Matt Weiler...

More Sports Terms

February 7, 2014
By

About 20 or so years ago, sportscasters started to use terms like double double, triple double, and quadruple double in basketball.  A double double refers to the situation where a player has double-figure results in scoring, rebounding and/or assists and/or blocked shots and/or steals.  The triple double moniker puts three of these possibilities together.  The quadruple...

Watching the Olympics

February 6, 2014
By

I will be watching the Olympics like a lot of you.  Wouldn’t it be nice if all we had to worry about was how good our American athletes would do?  Like everything else happening on a world stage, we have to worry whether some zealot is lying in wait to make a statement for...

If you are reading this article today, I am attending the annual Indiana State Track and Field Clinic.  Each year, weather permitting, almost 800 coaches throughout the state convene in Indianapolis for this annual event.  It is always nice to think about warmer weather and track meets in the middle of winter.  For the...

Sideline Interviews

By

By now all of you have seen the interview conducted by Erin Andrews after the Seattle/San Francisco ball game.  Any time you do an interview after a hotly contested pro game, you have to be careful what questions you ask a player.  Erin innocently wanted to know the Seattle defensive back’s description of his...

Old High School Gym

January 29, 2014
By

My wife and I were watching an old Cagney & Lacey the other night, and a scene in that show took place in a police bathroom.  There was mold all over the walls.  The first thing I thought of was the shower room at the old gym.  I can’t even imagine what the State...
