SHS earns big honor

Seymour High School has been honored by the Indiana High School Athletic Association (IHSAA) and the National Association of Intercollegiate Athletics (NAIA) as a 5-Star Leadership School for the 2015-16 school year.

Seymour is one of only 19 schools in the state to achieve this distinction.

5-Star Leadership Schools are recognized for the hard work and effort exhibited by their staff, students and community.

The five requirements that must be met to change the culture of sport are in the areas of Integrity, Respect, Responsibility, Sportsmanship and Servant Leadership.

Seymour has been awarded a complimentary personalized championship-style 4-by-8 foot banner to display in the school.

Football presale tickets

Tickets to Friday night’s sectional championship football game between East Central and Seymour at Bulleit Stadium are being sold early at the school’s athletics office this week.

Those interested in presale tickets can stop by Wednesday, Thursday or Friday from 8 a.m. to 3:30 p.m.

The game at Seymour has been moved to a 7:30 p.m. start time.

Lenart honored at Franklin College

Franklin College women’s soccer midfielder Clare Lenart was recently named to the the Academic All-District team, selected by the College Sports Information Directors of America.

The Grizzlies junior is from Seymour and is an exercise science major with a fitness minor.

Lenart ranks second on this year’s team with 26 points and 10 assists, and has scored eight goals.

She earned All-Great Lakes region honors by the NSCAA following the 2015 campaign.

Lenart is now eligible for Academic All-American honors, being awarded later this fall.
