KNEE Chargers open with Brown County on August 21 If all goes well, in a matter of two weeks, the Pike Cen- tral Chargers will be hosting Brown County on August 21 for the kickoff of the 2020 In- diana High School Athletic Association (IHSA A) football season. The IHSA A autho- rized the first day of non-con- tact practice for this past Mon- day, with the first full-contact practice date of Thursday, Au- gust 6. Some or all of this could change with a moment's no- tice considering the way COVID-19 has been affecting the tri-state and the country. Illinois has postponed foot- ball until Spring 2021 and Ken- tucky has delayed their sea- son, with the first day of prac- tice on Monday, August 24 and first game allowed on Friday, September 11. Weathers Field is the sight for the opener with Brown County, but crowds will need to respect the social distanc- ing required by law. A fter the regular season starts, the tournament draw is set for October 8, with the post season beginning on Oc- tober 23. Game two and three are road trips to Pocket Athletic Conference rivals Tecumseh and South Spencer on August 26 and September 4, respec- tively. Southridge is a 3A home contest on September 11 and Washington is a 3A at their place on September 18. North Knox is at Weathers Field on September 25 and the long road trip to 2A Tell City is October 2. Forest Park and North Posey round out the schedule on October 9 and Oc- tober 16, respectively. Lou Karsner is big winner this week The 63 Group COVID-19 Bass Tourney Series this week was won by Lou Kars- ner, breaking a string of four wins by the team of Cale Beck and Morgan Vaal. Karsner al- so won the big bass award among five boats vying for the win on Thursday at Prides Creek Lake. Beau Dillon reports that de- spite a very rainy day, there was a payout of $200. Alan Faith and Kenny Osgatharp placed second, followed by a three-way tie for third. Josh Braunecker, Eric Slunder, Allen Nelson, Keith Brock, Zeb Fraser and Beau Dillon were knotted up for the third-place finish. The next tournament is this week on Thursday, at Glendale, start- ing at 5:30 p.m. Sports Back-to-school supplies Daniel Murray, with the House of Mercy in Winslow, puts together a back-to- school set of supplies. He and Lacey Murray volunteered Saturday morning to put together the kits for specific grades. House of Mercy started the program about six years ago and gave out 20 kits that year. Since then, they have grown to 50 kits. They hoped to do 75 Saturday, but rainy weather had reduced the demand. They said if the turnout remained low, they might do it again on Saturday, August 8. Adam Scales (812) 354-8488 Back-to-school yard sale The House of Mercy in Winslow had a back-to-school yard sale on Saturday.
