Coming off of this the Owls will be high on confidence facing the Highlanders.

During this streak FC beat the No. 6 4A team (Castle) in the state and ended the No. 1 3A team’s (Brownstown) 22 game win streak. Over the last 15 games FC went 14-1 and are riding this hot streak into sectionals. Continue reading Hoosier Hills conference sectional tournament preview

Under new leadership this year, FC’s student section, the Kilt Krew, has driven school spirit to what some believe is an all time high. Uniting the entire school and encouraging students to come out has been a large part of this year’s boys’ basketball season.
Junior Ryan Shean is one of these leaders, and although he may not be a senior quite yet, he still does his job to prepare the school for each game.

After being eliminated from the IHSAA Sectional in late January, the girls’ basketball team ended their season with a 13-11 record.
“This season went much better than the previous seasons which I’m grateful to be part of. I was hoping to make the championship of sectionals. We had the best draw we could have had but it was upsetting to lose against Jennings County in the first round. On the bright side, we did have a winning season which hadn’t happened in years,” said senior Gracie Fitzgerald. “This season was also very interesting. We are just dominos of injuries. Despite that, we played every every game with our best possible effort. This team definitely proved potential for the next few years. I’m so proud to be a part of this team.”
“Last season was amazing. We should’ve won a few more of the close games, but I’m really happy with how it went. The team really grew together as the season went on and played as a family. My main goal was a winning season because since I’ve been in the program we haven’t had one, and we had a winning season this year,” said senior Chenaniah Clark.
