Lastly, Hill recognized the four team captains se- lected by a vote of the varsity players--including seniors Robert Coulter and Shaun Schroader, junior Blake Wil- son, and sophomore Bryan Taylor. Hill then introduced his coaching staff for the 2005 season, including varsity and junior varsity assistants Paul Decker, Neil Grant, and Cheston Hoover, and fresh- man coaches Kevin Coomes and John Casteel. Coach Grant---who spent most of his time last season working with the new fresh- man program--then intro- duced the freshman squad members. They included freshmen James Addington, Matt Beddow, Nathan Bishop, Justin Frizzell, Luke Fort, Derek King, Arthur Leach, and Michael Wilson, eighth graders Christian Baird, Derek Everly, Ryan McBride, Justin Oliver, Aus- tin Patton, and Roger Pharris, and seventh graders Brandon Johnson, Heath Garner, Garrett Leach, Jordon Phelps, and Jason Ruby. Grant also reco mized Beddow, Frizzell, Arthur Leach, and Oliver as team captains for the upcoming season. Sophomore Ben Millay then offered a pre-meal prayer, signaling the begin- ning of the dinner hour. During the meal--catered by the OCHS food service staff--guests made bids on some three dozen items do- nated by local supporters and businesses. Following the meal, the crowd was treated to a live rendition of a new school spirit song composed by team parent Greg Daugherty, with music writ- ten by OCHS band director John Murrey. Next, the lo- cal magician/escape artist Doug King entertained the crowd with magic tricks as well as escaping from a straight jacket Coach Hill helped him get into. After the evening's enter- tainment, Coach Grant re- turned to the microphone to announce those that had submitted the winning bids in the silent auction. He then supervised the draw- ing of tickets for over two dozen door prizes, also sub- mitted by local supporters and businesses. The final drawing of the night saw the name of Kevin Whitten of Centertown drawn to win a new 52-inch big-screen television. The dinner and evening was deemed another big success by Coach Hill and members of the booster club. Ohio County opens its 2005 varsity baseball sea- son March 29 at Breckinridge County while the freshman Eagles open March 31 at Henderson County.

In Monday's boys' game, Ohio County junior forward Josh Clemons had a "mon- ster" game, scoring 30 points and grabbing 15 rebounds in the Eagles' 20-point win. Ohio County's dominant size advantage resulted in a one- sided 35-16 edge in rebound- ing on the night. Junior guard Shaun Maiden fired in a pair of first period three-point hoops as Ohio County took an 18-15 lead after one quarter. Cou- gar forward Jeremy Coakley matched Maiden's long- range shooting in the quar- ter to try and keep his team in contention. The Eagles got balanced scoring in a high- scoring second period that ended with Ohio County on top 48-37 at the intermission. McLean County senior cen- ter Michael Ruby topped all scorers in the frame with 11 while Clemons had eight for the visiting Eagles. McLean County outscored Ohio County 7-2 to open the second half, cutting the Eagle lead down to six points at 50-44. But Clemons scored 10 in the period, outscoring McLean County single-handedly in the eight- minute span as Ohio County's lead grew to 67-46 by period's end. The 6-10 junior knocked in a pair of free throws to open the fourth quarter, giving the Eagles their longest lead of the night at 69-46. Coakley then hot for the home team, firing in 11 points, including a trio of three-point buckets, to try and rally his team, but Ohio County maintained its edge to take the win. Monday's loss dropped the Cougars to 7-22 on the year. Clemons' game-high total included 16 of 19 free throw shooting, as the Eagles canned 29 of 37 from the charity stripe. Maiden and junior guard Jordan James each added 13 points for Ohio County, while Coakley fin- ished with 19, Ruby 14, and Bryson Phillips 13 for McLean County. Ohio County junior point guard Josh Vaught had another strong floor game, dishing out 11 assists and picking up three steals for the winners.
