  • BHS track continues indoors
    The Batesville track and field teams competed in the Hoosier State Relays at the Gladstein Fieldhouse at Indiana University Saturday. 
    Veteran Oldenburg Academy baseball coach Doug Behlmer had several important ingredients picked from his pantry following a regional finals appearance last spring. 
  • Bulldogs expect great things IN ‘22
    Entering the 2022 hardball campaign, the Batesville Bulldogs of coach Justin Tucker are the defending IHSAA sectional champions as well as defending trophy-winners of the Eastern Indiana Athletic Conference. 
    GREENSBURG - The Batesville girls basketball team played the host Greensburg Lady Pirates in the opening round of the sectional Feb. 2. The Lady Bulldogs played even with Greensburg for the first half of play, going into halftime down by just two points. 
    WALDRON – With an Ellie Ryan basket off a Kate Weber assist, it appeared the Oldenburg Academy Lady Twisters were poised for their first sectional win under coach Eric Feller last Tuesday against Rising Sun.
  • Trio of Bulldogs on to Semistate
    RICHMOND - The Batesville wrestling team took five wrestlers to the regional in Richmond Saturday and came away with three semistate qualifiers: Josh Mobley (34-3) won the 170-pound class, Alex Murphy (29-5) runner-up at 120 and Chase Hamilton (31-8) third at 195. BHS placed seventh as a team, scoring 49 points. East Central was far ahead of the pack with 175.
  • Mobley leads Bulldogs at sectional
    AURORA – Led by senior Josh Mobley's championship in the 170-pound bracket, the Batesville Bulldogs wrestled to a fifth-place finish at Saturday's South Dearborn sectional. The Dogs scored 120 points, with East Central comfortably winning the event (253.5). Mobley's sectional title was BHS' first since Will Amberger in 2015.
  • Twisters caught in Wildcat storm
    On paper, last Wednesday's intra-county matchup between visiting Oldenburg Academy and Franklin County – winners of their previous 11 games – was a mismatch. 
    Turns out, it also was one on the court.
    Depending on whose side of the bleachers one was on Friday night, the North Decatur-Batesville game was either a big defensive meltdown or an all-time comeback fueled largely by one individual.
  • Lady Bulldogs Drop Two Games in a Row
    Back-to-back losses for Batesville varsity girls basketball last week had them sitting at 5-16 on the season with one game remaining before the 2022 postseason. The Lady Bulldogs finished the season 1-6 in Eastern Indiana Athletic Conference games. 
  • Twisters Drop Homecoming Contest
    A second-half comeback by the Oldenburg Academy Twisters Saturday afternoon wasn't quite enough to get past visiting Greenwood Christian Academy on Homecoming Day 2022. The hosts held a one-point advantage with just under six minutes remaining, but the Cougars finished on a 9-2 run to give OA its ninth loss of the season.
  • Eagles soar to first county title in 15 years
    Jac-Cen-Del, after losing its grip on the Ripley County Tournament girls trophy the night before to South Ripley, recovered to defeat Batesville 58-46 on the Bulldogs' home court Saturday night for the school's first RCT boys championship since 2007. 
  • Twisters pull off DH sweep on senior night
    With a dozen 12th-graders being recognized between games Friday evening, the Oldenburg Academy Twisters took care of the business end of things by sweeping visiting Madison Shawe Memorial out of the Hillenbrand Family Feldhaus. The boys took the court first and posted a 54-29 final; in the nightcap, it was the Lady Twisters frustrating the Lady Hilltoppers to the tune of 37-20.
    Junior Hannah Haverkos got the roll in the paint and Ryan connected on a 10-footer off a Rachel Lamping pass. Facing the two-touchdown deficit, SC finally went to work on offense.
    A blue-shaded team was guaranteed to win the 2021 Batesville holiday tournament held last Thursday at BHS.
  • Lady Bulldogs' hoops snapshot
    Roster: Gabby Elston, Calley Kaiser, Carley Pride, Olivia Raab, Sarah Ripperger, Breanna Wells (seniors); Cora Deputy, Makayla Granger-Young, Ava Hanson, Emma Weiler (juniors); Claire Saner (sophomore); Aly Peters (freshman). Head coach Bryan Helvie is in his 3rd season at BHS with a 15-32 record.
  • Lady Twisters growing and improving
    Coach Eric Feller did the best he could in his maiden year leading the Oldenburg Academy Lady Twisters. 
  • Bulldogs done in by mud, unbeaten Braves
    With the Dawg Pound turned into a boggy marsh Friday night thanks to rain showers from start to finish, Batesville had a chance to slow down undefeated Brownstown Central in the Sectional 31 semifinals.
  • Lady Bulldogs cap off excellent Day
    After seeing their male counterparts advance to the Shelbyville Semistate with a third- place regional finish, the Batesville girls cross country team took to the Franklin Community course Saturday and did them two better – winning the regional round for the second time in school history.
