Lady Jackets’ defense silences Keytesville for first loss
Any coach will tell you mid-December is way too early to talk about a game that will have an impact on district seedings. Still, for Class 1 District 10, the stakes were high for the potential No. 1 seed when Glasgow hosted Keytesville on Thursday night.
Keytesville, fresh off a Northwestern Tournament championship that included a victory over Linn County, the No. 5 team in Class 1, averaged 62.5 points per game in its first four wins of the season. Glasgow wouldn’t let the Lady Tigers anywhere near that number.

Driftwood Outdoors: Give the outdoors of Indiana as special gift
Just the idea of Black Friday makes me want to find a hole in a hallow tree and stick my head inside to shut out a world gone mad. Giving a gift feels nice, and so does receiving one, but do most of us really need more stuff? There’s a good chance the outdoorsman in your life, the one you say “already has everything,” actually does already have everything he needs.

Glasgow boys hold off Bulldogs to win fifth championship in six years
Something had to give Saturday night. There was going to be a new boys champion in the Glasgow Tournament, and only one team could start the 2014-15 season with a 4-0 record.
Glasgow, which had won four consecutive titles from 2009-12, was seeking its 35th title. Harrisburg had not won since 2008 and was playing in its third-straight championship game.
In the end, experience won out. Glasgow senior Blake Hackman, starting his 12th career game in the tournament, had 16 points and nine rebounds to lead Glasgow back to another title with a 62-55 win against Harrisburg.

Glasgow holds off New Franklin for third place
Following Saturday’s third-place game of the Glasgow Tournament, Glasgow girls basketball head coach Molly Monnig and her assistant coach, Jay Thompson, were deciding the best way to evaluate their play against New Franklin.

They were also able to agree on another thing. It was a win.
Glasgow won a low-scoring affair against the Lady Bulldogs by a score of 28-22, despite only scoring eight points in the entire second half.

The Bolton Rules: Harrisburg’s center leads Bulldogs past Fayette to championship game
Harrisburg head coach Steve Combs has a name for his team’s offense this season. It’s called “The Bolton Rules.”
The offense, named for senior center Bryan Bolton, has two very simple rules. Rule No. 1: Get the basketball to Bolton. Rule No. 2: Get out of the way so Bolton can score.
It was as simple as that Thursday night at Glasgow. Bolton dominated the inside, finishing with a career-high 29 points to go along with 14 rebounds and four blocked shots, leading Harrisburg to a 76-58 win over Fayette in the semifinals of the Glasgow Tournament.
