Swimming in the Creek
On Monday, November 11, Silver Creek High School's swim season officially began when the swim team had their first practice. All swimmers attended and seemed to be excited to get in the water, even though it was a dry practice. "I get too excited for the start of swim season. I really enjoy spending time with our team." said Jacob Fetter, Jr. The team's first pool practice was held on November 12 at the New Albany YMCA.
There are many new members on the high school swim team this year, including a new coach. All swimmers are working hard to make this season a great one. Fetter said, "This season, I think, we are going to be a solid team; We have a lot of talent along with good quality experience. I realistically see us doing very well this year."
Mackenzie Crouch in State Cross Country Meet
by Logan Crouch
On November 2, 2013, at the LaVern Gibson cross country course in Terre Haute, IN, Junior Mackenzie Crouch ran in the Indiana cross country state meet. At semi-state, Mackenzie was 15th with a time of 19:22, and was the only person from Silver Creek to make it to state. Mackenzie’s fastest time before the state meet was 19:22, the time she got at semi-state. “The fastest female state time from Silver Creek is 19:53,” said Coach Kingery before the meet. “This is a hard course.”
With the engineering teacher Mr. Shewman at their prow, the prodigous Robotics Club of SCHS create and code robots to do their bidding. Wielding nuts, bolt, and assorted metal parts, members of this club get to work on building robots biweekly in Mr. Finch's room after school, where they practice building and coding robots.
According to Mr. Shewman, the Robotics Club is all about "Learning how to build robots... make them do different things... automating them."
This is the club's third year at SCHS, and last year they were able to go to Columbus and participate in a competition called "Locknight", in which participants compete overnight to design and build robots effective at doing assigned tasks.
Cross Country Semi-State
On October 26, the cross country Semi-State meet was held at the Brown County course. We had our girl’s team and Tanner Coots representing Silver Creek. The girl’s team ended up coming in 10th place ending most of their season, but we had one girl that ended up making it to state. Mackenzie Crouch made it to state with a time of 19:23. She came in 15th place and had a personal record. Tanner Coots had a time of 17:00 and came 17th place individual. He was not able to continue to state.
Our goal for next year for both teams is to try their hardest and improve. If we can do that then we have a good chance of making it to the state meet. Coach Kingery was proud of the team this year. He said “We ran good but we needed to run great to get out. Everybody ran better than we did at regional, still wasn’t good enough to get to the next level.”
SC Cheerleaders Awarded State Runners-up
Silver Creek Dragons Cheerleading team took state runner-up on November 9, at Southport High School in Indianapolis, Indiana.

Coaches Jenn and Amanda said to the team, “We are proud of you all for giving it your best and we love you all so much!”
