      Corrupt files   07/26/2017

      The server files for the forum were lost early in the morning 26,July 2017.   I restored the forum but using a fresh install of the forum software but we lost all of the images stored on the server. The way I see it... no big deal as it gives us a fresh start.   Over the next couple days I will restore the images I have saved for the forum. but I do not have everyone personal image. You can easily restore that yourself. Any pictures shared in a post that were stored here are also gone... again a fresh start of no clutter.    I just wanted to let you know what was going on. This will display until 1, Sept 2017.

  1. I couldn't really tell from the article but it sounds like there will be just one CIC-CCC match-up for each school each year, or could there be more than one game per school? If just one, I wonder if they will try to schedule all the games on the same weekend or if they will just go by whatever is available per each school's schedule?
  2. Possible IPS closures

    Most of the IPS high schools are already 7-12, or in the case of Crispus Attucks 6-12. The only 9-12 IPS high schools are Tech and Shortridge. I was looking at the IPS website last night and was surprised that Manual is not an IPS school. I think I knew Howe wasn't but was didn't know what Manual's status was. Both appear to be operated by the same charter organization. It's a little confusing because when I looked up Indianapolis charter schools they weren't listed. Based on the IPS website here is are the schools that are listed as being high schools: Arlington - grades 7-12 Arsenal Tech - 9-12 Broad Ripple - 7-12 Crispus Attucks - 6-12 George Washington - 7-12 IPS Career Tech - 9-12 (listed as a separate high school but appears to be located on the Arsenal Tech campus. John Marshall - 7-12 Northwest - 7-12 Shortridge - 9-12
  3. Ok, it's been over two months now and apparently this never happened, so just out of curiosity what school was being considered?
  4. Per this article in the Crawfordsville Journal Review, the consolidated high school will be housed in the current Rockville building and the middle school (6-8) will be in the Turkey Run building. Names of schools, colors, mascots and whatever else need to be worked out are still to be determined. http://www.journalreview.com/news/local/article_2a91100a-1b35-11e7-8dd2-93c57284e13d.html As this pertains to football, based on the recent IHSAA enrollment information the current combined enrollment of grades 9-12 is 383 students which is just 6 above the largest 1A school, so it's more than likely the combined school will eventually end up in 1A anyway. That's assuming the combined school will probably lose a few students in the consolidation process plus the school district's enrollment has been on the decline for the past few years. Turkey Run is currently the smallest public school that has a football team. The only schools that are smaller are Rock Creek Academy, Traders Point Christian Academy and Indiana School for the Deaf.
  5. When I moved to Carmel in 1993 the set up here was elementary K-6, junior high 7-9, high school 10-12. In the late 90s or so they went to elementary K-5, Junior High (later re-named Middle School) 6-8 and high school 9-12. Then a few years ago a separate Freshman Center was built. It is attached to the northwest side of the main high school building. Presumably it shares the athletic facilities and maybe the cafeteria with the main building but I don't know for sure to what extent.
  6. So will Southport be the next domino to fall?
  7. So that would barely include Columbus East and, for what it's worth, barely exclude Martinsville.
  8. This comment appears at the Perry Athletics @PMFalconsSports Twitter as a retweet from Kyle Neddenriep: .
  9. I don't know when the Franklin High School (now Franklin Community High School) program started but I did find a copy of the 1900-01 yearbook online and the school did have a football team at that time. They also had a program for at least a couple years before because the write up on the team made the comment that the team "was light with many of the heaviest players going out with the class of '00 and others leaving in their junior year for college". The roster was listed by position and it included a total of 11 players with one other player listed as being a substitute. There were 17 players in the team picture so not sure why the others weren't mentioned. The sports teams, the only other team was the baseball team, were referred to as the Cadets rather than the Grizzly Cubs (that name came about in the late 20s or early 30s) The article referred to the sport as "foot ball" (with the space between the two words) Scores that year were : Franklin 0 , Columbus 5 Franklin 16, Trafalgar 0. Franklin 12, Greenwood 0. Franklin 0, Trafalgar 0. Franklin 5, Columbus 17 Write ups for games in old yearbooks are always an interesting read. Also, off topic, happened to see a picture of my great aunt in the class of 1905.
  10. East and West fields

    Another angled football field is Whiting which runs southeast to northwest and parallel to Lake Michigan. Played a New Year's Eve Day pick up game with friends there years ago. Indiana's answer to the Frozen Tundra.
  11. East and West fields

    Columbus East runs southwest to northeast, same as Lucas Oil.
  12. High School Nicknames

    Johnson County high school nicknames: Center Grove Trojans Edinburgh Lancers Franklin Grizzly Cubs Greenwood Woodmen Greenwood Christian Cougars (had to look that one up) Indian Creek Braves Whiteland Warriors (at one time they were the Wrens) High schools no longer in existence: Clark Lions (now part of Whiteland) Hopewell Tigers (I think that's right but not 100% sure) (Now part of Franklin) Masonic Home Craftsmen (located in Franklin, closed as a high school in the 1940s) Nineveh Eagles (now part of Indian Creek) Trafalgar Redbirds (once known as the Red Devils) (now part of Indian Creek) Union Rambers (now part of Franklin)
