RAMBLIN' RECK: Kudos to the prep teams, athletes who made it to post-season

TERRE HAUTE — The final high school games and matches have been played in the 2010-11 season. It won’t be that long until a new season begins. In the meantime, kudos to the athletes who competed in the final week of the season.

Kudos to:

• The North Central baseball team for reaching the state finals and for giving Lafayette Central Catholic all it wanted in losing by a run in the Class A championship contest.

The Thunderbirds have had back-to-back premier seasons in baseball and will be looking for more of the same next spring.

The North and South split decisions in the final games, with Carroll (Allen) joining LCC as champs from the North, beating Indianapolis Cathedral 5-3 in 4A action. South Spencer took 2A honors with an 8-1 victory over Hanover Central and Crawfordsville won in 3A, beating Mishawaka Marian 8-3.

• Terre Haute South and Brandon Bekkering of South Vermillion for making it to state in boys golf and having a solid first day to earn the right to play the second day — being one of 10 teams and one of nine individuals, respectively, to do it.

The seniors on the South team and Bekkering have had four super seasons of high school golf and can look back on that time with pride and satisfaction.

Avon senior Patrick Rodgers capped a stellar career tying for third last week after being the champ as a junior and runner-up as a sophomore. He won the mental attitude award.

Adam Wood of Zionsville may be following in his footsteps, finishing second as a freshman. He competed in the Terre Haute men’s city tournament last year.

• Getting together — Former members of the Terre Haute Hurryin’ Hauteans got together for the 10th time recently, enjoying good food and fellowship and, of course, playing some basketball at the home of Nancy and David Haynes.

David coached the cagers from 1990 to 1995, then assisted Joey Bennett with the Terre Haute Express. This gathering serves as a fundraiser for the Matt Beecher Memorial Scholarship given annually at Terre Haute North. “Beech” was an original Hurryin’ Hautean and met an untimely death in 1992 in the midst of a banner North season.

David notes that the generosity of those attending the Hauteans Classic allows the scholarship to continue. Former winners of the scholarship were at the gathering along with Mayor Duke Bennett, who made the toss for the ceremonial tipoff for the eight-team competition.
