RAMBLIN’ RECK: North Vermillion, Linton, Casey remain unbeaten on gridiron

TERRE HAUTE — It’s a busy sports week for high schools in the Valley.

Indiana girls high school basketball teams will play their first official games, boys began practice on Monday and three football teams continue postseason competition.

North Vermillion, Linton and Casey all are undefeated and all are in the Elite Eight of their classes in Indiana and Illinois.

North Vermillion and Linton take 12-0 records into regional contests slated for Friday. The Falcons are at home against 9-3 Indianapolis Scecina while the Miners hit the road to take on 9-3 West Washington; kickoff is 8 p.m. for that one.

Casey is 11-0 and will be on the road for the first time in the postseason to face 8-3 Belleville Althoff at 7 p.m. Saturday at Lindenwood.

We covered Casey’s first two postseason games, with the Warriors besting Carlinville 50-49 in overtime to advance to the third round. We’ve seen a few games in our time and that was one of the best we have ever seen.

It was tough on the coaches but great for the fans who endured cold weather to take in the game.

Casey coach Jim Sullivan says his team will have to play its best this week again to prevail. He says the next opponent has NCAA Division I prospects on the roster, with one going to Illinois.

Go Warriors. Go Miners. Go Falcons.
