WHITLEY COUNTY — The Whitley County Lady Colonels suffered a 58-55 loss Monday night to Lincoln County, but also lost center Candice Craig in the process.
Craig went down in the first quarter with what was eventually diagnosed as a broken hand.
Lady Colonels head coach Larry Anderson said he expected Craig to be out for about four to six weeks.
“They said four to six weeks, so that’s what we will expect and hope for,” he said. “It’s tough for us because we really don’t have anyone that size to fill in down low, but we’ll just have to see who steps up in that situation.”
As for Monday’s game, Anderson said the Lady Colonels played as bad a game as he’s seen in some time in the early going. He was pleased with the way his team turned things around eventually.
“We really played as ugly as we possibly could have played in the first half,” Anderson said. “We just looked like we didn’t really know what we were doing our there,” he added. “But I was pleased with the way we turned things around late.”

THE WAY IT IS: Football is in the air in the Tri-County
These cool summer days are reminding me of the cool football Friday nights of September and October, and with that said, these cooler temperatures have me in the mood of writing about things to come for our local football teams in the Tri-County.
It’s never too early to talk about what games will be the big ones for the Tri-County high school football fans to watch this upcoming season. I’ve tried to narrow my list down to 10 games, but honestly, it really wasn’t easy to do — but I did manage to do it.
Let’s just say things should be very entertaining, and interesting, for you the fan this season.

Shelton was a hero by any definition
The word hero is used a little too loosely for my taste these days.
To be honest, it’s been used way too much for a long time and I’m just as guilty as the next guy.
