EIAC All-Sports 2012

first_imgA big thank you to Mark Ferguson, athletic director at Batesville High School, for providing me with final statistics for last year’s EIAC.  There definitely is a pattern with both the boys and girls standings.  East Central and Batesville dominated the EIAC.  East Central was first in the boys and Batesville was first in the girls.  Overall, East Central was first, Batesville was second, and Greensburg was third.  On the flip side, the Lawrenceburg athletes were overwhelmed by the other EIAC teams.  Only Franklin County girls challenged them for ineptness.  In 9 sports the Lawrenceburg boys averaged a 5th place finish out of 6 teams and the Franklin County girls averaged a dismal 6th.  If it weren’t for girls’ golf, Franklin County girls might have set an all-time low in the conference rankings.  Overall, the statistics show that East Central, Batesville, and Greensburg are the “haves” and South Dearborn, Franklin County, and Lawrenceburg are the “have nots”.  It will be interesting to see, with the addition of Rushville and Connersville, how the 2013-14 statistics compare.  I would predict that Connersville will join the top half and Rushville will line up in the lower half.  Rushville’s enrollment has dwindled so much in the last few years that they are having trouble fielding competitive squads in some of their sports.  In another article, I will talk about some individual sports.  For example, East Central boys have never lost a swimming title until last year.  Look for more to come!last_img read more
