New Augusta Athletics Update Week of 9/28
New Augusta is entering its final full week of competition for fall sports. Thank you to all the athletes, coaches, parents and staff that have helped NAN athletics get through this very unpredictable fall sports season.
This week on Tuesday September 29th our cross country team has its final home meet of the year. Zionsville Middle, Guion Creek, and Lincoln will be participating in what was scheduled as the Pike championships but due to low numbers and the inability to use the Pike HS course ZMS is bringing a group down to make it a full meet. The teams will be competing in the county meet at the Decatur Central High School course on Saturday October 3rd. Ticketing and course information will be available when received by host.
Also on September 29th our girls’ volleyball teams will have their final home matches of the season as they take on Franklin Central MS team, which was rescheduled from September 15th. The 8th grade team travels to Guion Creek on Monday. The 8th grade team has definitely qualified for the MIIC tournament which we be held on Thursday October 1st at Center Grove. The 7th grade is awaiting results from other games to determine if they have qualified.
Thursday is the last match of the season for boys’ tennis v Southport. The boys’ tennis had a strong showing recently at the Marion County meet.
Thursday is the next home football game for out 8th grade team as they take on Eastwood MS. The 7th grade team recently defeated Decatur Middle. More details will be forthcoming on what their next game could be. Football T-shirts, Gaiters, and Masks will be on sale all week and at the game.
