Schools - Silver Creek High

Fall Sports Update
by Sam Lay


Girls Soccer - The girls soccer team has a record of 10-0-0. Mr. Anderson says that the greatest accomplishment from 
this season is that they have had seven shutouts and that they also beat Jeff 7-1. Also the girls won 
the Silver Creek Tournament. He expects to win the Scottsburg 


Varsity Football - The Varsity football team has a record of 2-2. Mr. Hawkins says that their biggest accomplishment so far was beating Salem at Salem. He expects the teamto be very competitive and to 
get ready for sectionals. He also says that the seniors this year have shown great leadership.
Also, there is a big game against Charlestown this week. The Dragons will give it their all!


Girls Golf - The girls record is 30-11. They won the Mid-Southern 
conference title. Mr. Ledbetter was not shocked at all that they won conference. He 
knew that the girls would win because of how hard they try on the course.
He fully expects to qualify for regionals. He is proud of his team because this
is the most self-motivated team he has ever coached. He has never had to tell them what to do at practice.


Cross Country - The cross country team is still undefeated. Ms. Richmer
says that their biggest accomplishment is that they won at Martinsville. They had never won that invitational before. She expects the team to try their hardest and succeed. There is a great group of seniors and the team has great leadership and 


Boys Tennis - The boys tennis team's record is 8-6 and they are 4-2 in 
conference. Mr. Briscoe is very proud of how the freshman have already shown maturity. Two
freshman have stepped up to play on the Varsity roster. Mr. Briscoe expects that in the Jasper Tournament the team will do well. He thinks there
will be good competition and hopefully some turning points. He likes how even though some of the
seniors were forced into certain positions they don't usually play, they still showed that they could 
do it. 


Volleyball - The volleyball team is  currently 14-11. Coach Zimmerman commented that, "We have played some very tough competition this season and we have been competitive in every match.  Our philosophy all season long is that everything we do this season is practice for Sectional."


Boys Soccer The current boys soccer record is 8 wins, 2 losses, and 2 ties. Upcoming games are North Harrison, Rock Creek, the Cougar Cup hosted by Trinity Lutheran on Saturday, and Austin next Wednesday evening.  Coach Bell commented, "2/3 of the way through the season, we are peaking at the right time. Our last couple of games we have been playing some fantastic team soccer. Our record shows that all of our hard work in the off-season and at our practices this year are paying off. A goal in the off-season we set was to be a better conditioned team than any of our opponents. So far this season we have hit our goal. One thing I have noticed is that this year's team has better team chemistry... a family-like quality and togetherness that has been missing on previous teams." 

 Silver Creek Trying To Keep Up With Enrollment


Classes are more crowded and the hallways, well, Jacob Atkins bobs and weaves his way. “I practically have to push people,” he said.

Mr. Crabtree - Principal

Lunch lines test cafeteria workers and teachers, at least a few, have no classroom to call home. Silver Creek High pays for being a hot school, for growing faster than, in some ways, it can keep up. With 900 students and more expected, Silver Creek strains to manage its popularity.

Better to be respected, though, to be believed worth any trouble. “It’s a lot more good than bad,” Jacob, a junior, said.

“I can be proud to say I’m from Silver Creek,” Bailey Miller, another junior, said.

The challenges of Silver Creek, in Sellersburg, begin with its building. The school is on a roll despite too much of the facility that remains mostly as it was when it opened more than a half-century ago. The West Clark Community Schools commit to three high schools — Borden and Henryville, as well as Silver Creek — and typically divide money. Mike Crabtree, Silver Creek’s principal since 1992, realizes demands on the school board but counts on his school’s growth spurt to be apparent. The issue is expected soon to come before that board.

“Hopefully we’ll consider some upgrades and remodeling,” Crabtree said. “We’ve retrofitted about as much as we can.”

Silver Creek’s growth reflects, of course, growth in that part of Clark County. Geography only tells some of the success story, however. Nearly 150 students are transfers; they live outside the district but chose Silver Creek.

(Crabtree said the school has stopped accepting transfers, for now, given the crunch.)

SC Band Gears Up
by Jake McKinley

SCHS Marching DragonsThe Silver Creek Band program is preparing to hit full stride! With Marching Band Mid-States Finals on November 8, Jazz band practices starting on Mondays & Fridays at 6:45am, preparations for Percussion Theatre (formally Winter Percussion or Winter Drumline) are in the works, with auditions happening in a few weeks. The first Pep Band rehearsal, which is open to anybody who knows how to play any instrument, will be the first Wednesday following Mid-states and take place after school for two hours. All subsequent rehearsals will only be one hour. The students have been working relentlessly on their marching show, with a camp day the week before Mid-States to polish up any loose ends. For the past number of years, Silver Creek has always been one spot away from making finals competition at Mid-States. With as much work as they're putting in, it may just be their year!
