Hendryx: Plummer recovering

IHSAA announces football sectional pairings.


“I just want to thank all those people because I have a lot of trust in the medical profession, but not near the trust that I have in the Lord and what he does so I just really appreciate all the prayers sent out to Mike that night,” he said.

Plummer was enjoying another big game Friday night. He had rushed for around 100 yards and a touchdown in one quarter of work, pushing his season totals to more than 900 yards and 15 touchdowns for the 5-3 Tigers.


The IHSAA on Sunday night announced pairings for its upcoming football sectionals. Play in Class 5A begins Nov. 1. Play in the other classes begins Oct. 25.

Four of Howard County’s five teams — Kokomo, Western, Taylor and Eastern — will open at home. If Kokomo wins, it likely would face Class 5A No. 1-ranked Westfield in the championship round. Western and Northwestern are part of a loaded Class 3A Sectional 28 field.

There are a pair of area-vs.-area matchups in the opening. In Class 2A, Cass visits Tipton. And in Class A, Clinton Central visits Tri-Central.

The Cass-Tipton matchup is a promising one. Tipton ranks No. 1 in the area with eight sectional titles all-time. Cass ranks No. 2 with seven.

The following are the pairings.
