NH football, schedules take hit from Ike

The windstorm last week caused several cancellations, postponements and minor damage to athletic facilities at the four local schools.
At North Harrison, the Cougars canceled their football contest at Brownstown Central on Friday. Athletic Director Rick Gunter said it is doubtful the game will be rescheduled. North Harrison and Brownstown Central also canceled a game two years ago in Brownstown due to inclement weather.
The North Harrison Volleyball Invitational has tentatively been rescheduled for Oct. 4. Also with volleyball, the North Harrison-Lanesville match-up will take place Oct. 15 at 6 p.m. in Ramsey.
This Friday, the North Harrison boys’ tennis team will play at Silver Creek instead of playing at Lanesville.
At this time, there has been no soccer games rescheduled.
Gunter also reported there was no major damage to the athletic facilities.
At Corydon Central, the athletic department is working for the best options to reschedule its contests. The volleyball team postponed two Mid-Southern Conference volleyball matches (Charlestown and Brownstown Central).
Corydon Central also sustained minor damage, with reports of a few windows blown out of the football field’s press box and roof damage to a storage shed.
At Lanesville, the varsity and junior high cross country meet at Christian Academy has been canceled along with junior varsity tennis versus New Albany.
Postponed Lanesville contests include varsity tennis at South Central moved to today (Wednesday); varsity tennis hosting New Washington moved to tomorrow; and junior high volleyball hosting Borden moved to Oct. 13.
Lanesville athletic director Matt Kellems said the lone damage to athletic facilities were losing brick dust off the baseball diamond.
South Central will host the boys’ county tennis tournament on Saturday, which was originally slated for last Saturday. Rescheduling the boys’ tennis match versus Lanesville to today is the only other change reported.
Athletic director David O’Connor said high jump mats were blown over but the school had little damage. Dugouts at the ball diamonds are being redone and escaped damage.
