She was followed by teammate Braylee Knepp with a 65. Washington's golfers and scores were Faith Dal- ton with a 47, Mckenzie Par- sons with a 55 and Reagan Phillips-Wright with a 59. Pike Central will be back in action on Thursday, Aug. 14 in a non-conference tri- angular meet with North Knox and South Knox at Prides Creek Golf Course. "They are both pretty good teams," Gideon said. "They have both been re- ally solid in the past and it will be tough challenge for us." However, the Chargers al- so have several key juniors and sophomores, who will be a part of the team, and a good freshman class that is getting better each week. Pike Central hosts Tell City in its season opener on Tuesday, Aug. 19. Western said after a long summer of training, his team is just ready to play. "I'm sure they're tired of just having to listen to me everyday," he said. "We are ready to get out there and grow as a team each game."

The are going to be disciplined and coached-up. They will fight hard all the way through." The Chargers did not have an official scrimmage before last season and Stephens be- lieves it cost the team. "That really came back to hurt us in the first game of the season," he said. "I felt like we gave away a win that we probably would have had if we had that scrimmage the week before. We are very ex- cited and fortunate to be go- ing up and playing the Clo- vers this Friday." Perhaps what should have fans the most excited from the scrimmage was the late additions to the varsity team, which added about a dozen players since the start of school. "It's just kind of a testa- ment to the kind of work everyone in the program puts forth to try to recruit players and stuff like that," Stephens said. "We didn't leave any stone unturned. If there is a young person in that high school who wants to be a part of what we are doing, then we are going to find them. We're excited be- cause of the freedom it gives us. We have more opportu- nities for practice, and add- ed depth also gives us the chance to rest some guys when we need to. Everyone involved in the program is really excited about all that."
