The Cardinals had a few tune-ups in preparation for the regular season beginning first with the Red & White Scrimmage. This evening also included the Indiana Blood Center being onsite collecting donations. The following Friday's scrimmage against Decatur Central had a change in location causing Southport to host on Saturday morning. The contest was cut short due to inclement weather.

The Cardinals kicked off their season at home on August 19th against the Rebels of Roncalli High School. This was also PTYF Night at Perry Stadium. Southport put forth a tremendous effort but did not come away victorious as Roncalli won 25-21. Eddie Schott threw for 196 yards and 2 touchdowns, one to Blake Evans and the other to Sergiey Slaughter. Andrew Mappes and Micah Walker combined for 148 yards on the ground, with Mappes breaking free for an 80 yard touchdown in the 3rd quarter.

The following week the Cardinals traveled to Westfield. Kickoff was scheduled for 7:00 p.m. but was pushed back beyond 8:45 p.m. due to lightning. The team struggled in the second half and fell 27-0 on a strange evening of football. Turnovers and time of possession hurt the team but the Cardinals will use their first road game as a learning experience.

Boys Soccer

The scrimmage against Mooresville was canceled due to inclement weather so the boys' soccer program began a rainy season on the road against Greenwood. The Cardinals got the win 4-0, with goals coming from Kyaw Naing (2), Israel Bolanos, and Lal Hima.

Two nights later the Cards hosted the Rebels of Roncalli High School. After giving up a goal early, the boys played from behind for the majority of the match. A late goal in the final minutes forced the draw between the two schools. After the tie, the Cardinals sat at 1-0-1 on the season.

That weekend, the Cards hosted Ben Davis. Again, the Cards gave up an early goal but fought back to tie things up heading late into the game. It looked like this would end in another draw but the Giants capitalized again and gave Southport their first loss of the season. Kyaw Naing scored another goal giving him 3 of the Cards 7 goals on the season.

The Cards then traveled to Franklin Community High School to take on the Grizzly Cubs. The Cards lost a close one 5-3. These boys continue to gain experience and develop as the young season progresses.

The Cardinals face the Falcons on Thursday, September 1st.

The girls then traveled to Trinity Lutheran in Seymour. The Cards came ready to play and showed what they were capable of with a 10-0 win. At this point in the young season, the girls are 3-0 with great play on the field and near the goal. Emily Chambers has only given up one goal.

The game against Greenwood was canceled following an evening of torrential rain. The Cards host the Falcons on Wednesday, August 31st.

Boys & Girls Cross Country

After rain forced a rescheduled date of the Perry Meridian dual meet, the Cardinal runners took to the course at Indiana University East for the Richmond Invitational to kick off the season. It was a tremendous outing for the Cards as five runners from both the boys' and girls' teams finished in the top 16. Lexi Green was the individual winner for the girl's race and helped the Cards bring home the championship. Drew Shellenberger was the top runner for the boys, also helping bring home the invite championship. Both teams brought a trophy home. Southport is very proud of these dedicated student athletes.

The teams traveled to Terre Haute and the LaVern Gibson course to compete in the Conference Indiana meet. Erin Sullivan was the individual winner for the girl's race. Lexi Green finished 5th. Both girls earn all-conference recognition and helped the girl's team place 4th. The boys were lead by Michael Crook and Drew Shellenberger who finished 9th and 10th respectively. Both earned all conference. The team finished 6th overall.

Boys Tennis

The boys' tennis team has hit the ground running this fall. It seems they are always on the courts competing. They've faced tough competition to begin the year by facing Franklin Community, Warren Central, Greenwood, and Columbus North. The contest against Warren Central was highly entertaining with a three hour match at #1 singles.

The team has three matches this week. They travel to Beech Grove and Franklin Central and host Martinsville.

Matches against Ben Davis and Decatur Central have been rained out.

Girls Golf

The girls have been on the wrong end with the weather most of the season. Of their eight scheduled contests, they have only played in three and a half due to rain and course issues.

These ladies continue to improve each time they hit the links, shaving strokes off of their game. Coach Adamson has been pleased with their commitment.
