Pirate News and Notes: HS Heisman, XCountry, & Football

Congratulations to Charlestown High School Athletes Steven Delaney and DeAsia King; selected this week as school qualifiers for the Wendy’s High School Heisman Scholarships to be awarded later this year.

Best of luck to our history making Lady Pirate Cross Country team, who after finishing third as a team at last Saturday’s Regional meet; will travel back to Brown County Saturday for the 12:15 pm Semi-State Meet.  The Lady Pirates finished behind Columbus North and Seymour, but ahead of Columbus East, Sectional Champion Jennings County, and host Brown County in the Regional.  Charlestown placed five runners in the top fifty finishers, led by Sophomore Carley Conway (10th), Sophomore Ashley Wight (26th), and Senior Katie Rhodes (33rd).  Check Pirate Pride Sports Broadcasting on Twitter for updates Saturday, just after 12:30 pm.

Pirate Football will begin Sectional play Friday when they travel to Batesville for a 7:30 pm kick-off.  Batesville is located north of Versailles and east of Greensburg, approximately 1 1/2 hours from Charlestown.  Pirate Pride Sports Broadcasting will broadcast the game live over the internet (www.CPPSB.com) beginning at 7:00 pm.
