Thank you indiAN nation

It’s hard to believe I have announced 100 varsity games for the school I love. The support I have gotten the past few years as I have been behind the mic has been outstanding. There are so many “Thank You’s” that I need to make and the first one is to the “man behind the senes”, The MCSC Media Director and TribeTV Instructor Mr. Brooks Holloway. The many hours he has spent with the Tribe Sports Network and all the things he has helped me with to become the announcer I am today, I wouldn’t be where I am today with out “Holloway”. Next I would like to thank my amazing partners within TribeTV and the TSN. Their help has been amazing, the “Tribe Guys” can do anything and my TSN crew can make a stream look like it’s from ESPN. Next I would like to thank the MCSC administration, your support of TribeTV and the TSN has been amazing over the years. Next to the community, fans and listeners. Thank you for the amazing support and thank you for “tuning into” the best student driven media production in the State. Next to my partners at the Radio station and all the guys who cover Grant County Sports. Lastly to my family, thank you for all the support and all the late nights. The nights coming back from a game that is an hour away, the late nights typing up a story or hearing my voice at 10:00 at night doing an interview. All these people have had a big impact on my announcing career and are special people. Again, thank you all for the support and I’m beyond excited to be calling more games behind the mic for Ole Miss Athletics.

Baseball recap and Panthers come to town

The Tribe is red hot. Winning 6 straight games,

The Tribe took down Eastbrook last night 17-3 after starting off very slow and being down three to nothing in the first two innings. Owen Felver with the win for Mississinewa with 6 K’s 9 walks, and only allowing 1 hit. Carson Campbell was 2 for 4 with an RBI. Landen Swanner was 1 for 4 with 3 RBIs. With a young team the Indians have to find ways to win and it comes down to situational baseball, The team has done just that, if it’s on the basses or at the plate pounding the ball into the ground to get a runner over that is what Mississinewa baseball is doing……. playing situational baseball.

The Tribe will host the Elwood Panthers tonight in a CIC showdown, The Indians are coming into tonight undefeated in the Central Indiana Conference.
