Tonight is the annual Homecoming of Batesville High School. I would imagine that most girls have at one time or another fantasized about being Homecoming Queen. One young lady will get that opportunity tonight.At Batesville Homecoming has become a bigger tradition with the addition of the football alumni recognition. This was started by Jerry Walsh and is now continued by Terry Giesting. The usual classes honored are those from 10-year intervals back from the current year. All alumni are invited but just these classes will be featured.I hope to see a lot of you at the game tonight against Lawrenceburg. Not only is it Homecoming, but the winner will probably be the 3A champion of the EIAC this year. See you tonight at the game!

Ron Rivera is the coach of the Carolina Panthers. Even though they were favored this year, they lost to the Denver Broncos in the Super Bowl. If history is anything, look for Ron Rivera to bounce back and win a Super Bowl in the very near future. After all, he had 3 losing seasons in his 5-year career with the Panthers. Each of those years it was widely rumored that he would either be fired before the season ended or surely after. He always survived.His record includes 6-10, 7-9, 12-4, 7-8-1, and this year his record was 15-1 and a Super Bowl Runner-up. He has been quite lucky because in most pro sports you seldom get 3 years to prove your worth. Evidently, his boss saw something special in him and was rewarded quite handsomely this past year.
Congratulations to recent Batesville High School graduate, Zach Britton, on being named the District H high school baseball player of the year. Britton was a 4-year member of the Batesville varsity as a catcher. This year he compiled the following statistics: batting average of .553 which included 6 home runs, 27 runs batted in, and 34 walks.Britton’s high school statistics would have been higher on the all-time list except for an injury that cost him most of one season. He will, however, join another BHS graduate, Bryan Hoeing, in Louisville this fall if he chooses not to accept a major league baseball offer that is sure to come. Most experts say that the quickest way to the major leagues is as a catcher. Congratulations and good luck to Zach!I would like to thank the Herald Tribune for some of the statistics in this article.
