Win some, lose some in JCMS action
It was a packed house Tuesday night at JCMS. With both gyms showcasing boys basketball, they were parking on the street with all four teams in action.
The seventh and eighth grade white team took on tough rivals, the Columbus Central Chargers, who were strong and fast. The Panthers lost both games but each team fought physical battles all the way to the end. The seventh grade had trouble with the Charger's full court press and ended up losing 58 to 34. The Panthers never gave up though and even put up 17 points in the third quarter. Their third quarter run was led by Carter Leak, who scored all six of his points in the third quarter. However it just wasn't enough to fix the damage done by the Chargers in the first half. Panthers and their points totals include Owen Miller 7, Gage Walters 2, Jakob Kirby 4, Aaron Martin 8, Joe Kelley 2, Bryce Smith 1 and Kyle Wilson 3.

Starting off season with a huge 66-48 win
It isn't often you get to coach against an Indiana legend. It is even less often than that when you get to win against a coaching legend.
Friday night, the Jennings County High School girls basketball team opened their season by hosting Scottsburg High School. The Warriorettes are coached by Donna Cheatham. This is her 28th year at the school where she holds a 451-119 record. She left Scottsburg briefly and took Southwestern Hanover to the state finals. She returned six years ago and her teams have beaten JCHS five of their previous meetings.

Lesson on being a class act
I was so thrilled when I got to Jennings County High School Friday night and got a look at the parking lot.
There were all kinds of cars in the lot and that made me feel good, knowing the Lady Panthers had a lot of people out to support them in their opening game of the season. There were a lot of people in the stands and best of all, there were a lot of JCHS students there as well.

Ladies shine in pre-season outing
There were all kinds of rules in place on exactly what type of basketball the two teams could play when the Jennings County High School girls basketball team hosted Columbus East in the annual controlled scrimmage Thursday evening.
Four 15-minute periods were played during the scrimmage with different rules in place each time. In the first period, the teams were allowed to play half court man-to-man defense only. The second period half-court zone used and teams could utilize full court defense in the third period. The final period allowed coaches to choose which type of defense they wanted to use.
Throughout the scrimmage the Lady Panthers played focused ball and were able to match the much taller Lady Olympian on the scoring side.

They sure are some scrappy girls
If you didn't get to the high school Thursday night to watch the Lady Panthers play Columbus East in the controlled scrimmage, I can only say one thing-I think you are going to be surprised when you see them play in the regular season.
The scrimmage is a time to come out and fine-tune your talent. It is not a time to show all the tricks you have up your sleeve or even one of those tricks. You don't want to play your cards too early because there is a whole lot of season left to go.
