perfect at Pike
PETERSBURG — South Knox’s boys and girls cross country teams each posted perfect scores in winning meets Tuesday at Pike Central.
The boys had 15, the Chargers 60, North Daviess 65 and Washington Catholic didn’t have a team score.
Oliver Smith was the meet winner in 18:51, followed by Trenton Faulkner 19:30, Will Staggs 19:41, Chase Staggs 20:15 and Dylan Hardig 20:33.
“It was nice to get off our course and run somewhere where we hope we have two competitive meets,” said Spartans boys coach Matt Toothman, pointing to the Pike Central Invitational and the regional. “We used the race as a workout. We paired some guys off where they would run in groups for two miles and then have them fight for the third mile. We got better, and that’s what we wanted out of it.”
The South Knox girls had 15, Pike Central 56 and North Daviess 73. Mykayla Couchenour was the winner in 21:37, followed by Ava Like 22:29, Lexi Detweiler 23:48, Macie Couchenour 23:51 and Gretchen Carie 23:54.
“It was a good night for heat training. It was our hottest race, and I hope it was our last one,” Lady Spartans coach Betsy Couchenour said. “We took one through eight, so I was prety happy with that. Talia Small had a good race at Gibson Southern and had another good one today. She can make a big difference on our team if she keeps that up.”
South Knox hosts the county meet Saturday, with the boys starting at 10 a.m.

“We still need to improve if we are going to contend for the sectional, but we are headed in the right direction.”

Madalynn Grube made 25 saves in goal.
“We had some pockets of time where we got disorganized, lost momentum, and they capitalized,” Lincoln coach Kellie Cargal said. “We had some really bright moments of passing and working the ball up field. Sierra (Mullins) did a great job dropping back to help defensively.”
The Alices host Washington Catholic at 5:30 p.m. today.
Robbins pulls it out
for tennis Spartans
WASHINGTON — No. 3 singles Nathan Robbins came through, 6-4, 7-6 (9-7), to lift South Knox’s boys tennis team to a 3-2 victory over shorthanded Pike Central on Tuesday.

“It was a pretty impressive for Nathan to win that match. He’s a freshman playing a senior, and the match came down to him in a tense tiebreaker,” South Knox coach Ryan Hayden said. “What Nathan’s got going is he’s left handed and has an aggressive cross-court forehand. He kept hitting that shot to the other player’s backhand to get points.”
Junior varsity wins were by Nolan Hays, 6-0; and Trevor Lough, 6-1.
The Spartans are at Barr-Reeve at 4:30 p.m. Thursday.

Now it’s just a head game with us. Once we get our confidence up, we’ll start scoring.”
The Warriors host South Knox at 5 p.m. Thursday.
