NEW ALBANY — NEWS AND NOTES

• Highlanders go 7-0 at HHC Duals: Floyd Central had a stellar start to the 2012-13 season by going 7-0 in the Hoosier Hills Conference Duals last weekend. The Highlanders won each of their dual meets by an average margin of 44.9 points.

Floyd Central’s Terrence Kennedy, Cory Troutman, Nick Ottersbach, George Emily and Jackson Randall each went 7-0. Going 6-1 for the Highlanders were Tyler Crowl, John Meldrum, Chase Herron, Ian Bagwell and Ward.

• Mustangs fourth at Fugate Memorial Duals: New Washington posted a 6-3 record to place fourth at the Robert Fugate Memorial Duals last weekend in Scottsburg.

Mustangs’ team captains Brady Meenach, Jacob Franklin and Yancey Crase each went undefeated during the two-day meet. New Washington coach Jeremy Campbell also lauded the efforts of Dalton Bingham, James Wise, Jacob Blackwell and Matt Mosley.

“This tournament was a good benchmark for us to determine what needs to be highlighted in the practice room in the coming weeks,” Campbell said. “Although we did not place as high team-wise as our goals were, our kids understand that the reason we are given setbacks is so that we can learn to overcome them. I have full confidence they will.”
