"Each of our girls had their own trials on Saturday," said Jennings coach Kellie Hensley. "In large tournaments like this, play is extremely slow, so it is trying for their patience, making it difficult to keep focused. Overall, though, we did pretty well with it."

JC fails to dig out of hole
Down 13-0 after four plays and less than two minutes into Friday's high school football game, Jennings County finally got untracked but it wasn't enough to catch visiting Bedford North Lawrence.
The Panthers (1-5 overall, 0-4 Hoosier Hills Conference) fell 26-12 to the Stars (3-3, 3-1) in the JCHS homecoming game in front of a large crowd.
"We can't put ourselves in a hole early like that," said JCHS Coach Dustin Roller. "Our players have to understand they have to be ready when they take the field. You can't beat yourselves. I think we did that tonight.
"We fought our tails off, though, and battled back. We just have to clean up our mistakes," he added.
While Jennings County twice pulled within a touchdown of Bedford, each time the visitors were able to renew their two-TD margin.

Non-toxic fishing sinkers now required at Muscatatuck NWR
Fall is a great time to go fishing at Muscatatuck National Wildlife Refuge.
Anglers who come to the refuge this fall should be aware that lead fishing sinkers are no longer legal on national wildlife refuges managed by the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, notes Donna Stanley, park ranger at Muscatatuck.
"Research has shown that lead sinkers are deadly to birds, and waterfowl can easily mistake lead sinkers lying on the bottom of lakes and ponds for food," Stanley explained.
