Cain earns HCAC weekly award

FRANKLIN – Last season’s Heartland Collegiate Athletic Conference (HCAC) individual champions have started the 2013 season by once again leading the pack. Franklin College cross country runners Hillary Cain (Rushville/RCHS) and Kristopher Sandlin (Scottsburg) were named the HCAC Runners of the Week after strong performances in last Saturday’s Sodexo Grizzly Invitational.

Cain led the women’s team to a first-place finish with a third-place effort in the season-opening meet. The two-time individual conference champion covered the 5-kilometer course with a time of 20:05. The weekly achievement is the ninth time that Cain has been honored during her career by the HCAC. The junior was honored five times in 2012.

The junior varsity Lion football team defeated New Castle 40-6.

Keith Yager threw a touchdown pass to Nick Sprinkle. Preston Bowling, Yager, Jacob Wilson and Spenser Wilson all rushed for touchdowns.

Defensively, the Lions blocked two punts and recovered two fumbles.

Pychinka to be honored at ISU

TERRE HAUTE – Five former Sycamores have been chosen to be inducted into the 22nd Class of the Indiana State University Athletics Hall of Fame.

The five include Dan Brandenburg, an All-American with the Sycamore football team; Bob Dickman, an All-American wrestler at Indiana State; Dr. Richard Landini, former Indiana State University president; Bob Pychinka, a former football player and wrestler at Indiana State; and Ernest Zeller, another former football player and wrestler for the Sycamores.

The five will be inducted during ceremonies on Thursday, Oct. 3, during the 2013 Indiana State Homecoming. They will also be recognized at the Indiana State Homecoming game against Youngstown State on Saturday, Oct. 5.
