On Saturday, Ford Center in downtown Evansville hosted the IHSAA Wrestling Semi-State and both Mt. Vernon and North Posey had representatives.

Vernon’s Brendan Hubbard, Mason Suits, Jayden Stillwagoner, E.J. Rainey, Zack Buckley, and Colten Schneider. Schneider was the lone wrestler of the bunch to win his first-round match, but then lost in the ticket round.

Her Michigan team went 4-1 over the weekend with wins against Illinois State, Bethune-Cookman, #17 Florida, and Oregon State.


No local high school or college sports tonight, so from the NBA…the Indiana Pacers are on the road in Charlotte to battle the Hornets at 6:00 PM. The Pacers are looking for back-to-back wins as they are 30-24 on the year.
