Coy competes in national event

LAS VEGAS— Howard County native Chad Coy took 12th place in the America’s Strongest Man competition held Friday and Saturday.

The 44-year-old competes in masters contests for 40-and-older athletes, but returned to open competition this season for his 10th appearance in the America’s Strongest Man event after taking second in the Masters’ Worlds recently. He first started competing in the open event in 1998.

In the eight events, Coy scored highest in the 750-pound dead lift reps (taking eighth place), and the suicide medley of carrying three objects 75 feet each and then dragging a sled loaded with all three (taking ninth place).

Colorado’s Brian Shaw was the 2013 champ.

“This was my final open show,” Coy said. “I will stick with the Masters’ from here on out. I give all the credit to God for making me this way and blessing me with the strength and longevity in this sport.”

Wagner records ace at Mystic Hills G.C.

CULVER — Julie Wagner recorded a hole in one during a round of Sunday at Mystic Hills Golf Course.

Wagner used an eight iron to ace No. 8, which was playing at 126 yards. The feat was witnessed by her husband, Paul Wagner.

It was the third hole in one of Julie’s career, all of which have come in the last 10 years. She is the head women’s golf coach at Indiana Wesleyan University.

IHSAA hands down penalties for brawl

Following a brawl that erupted during last Friday’s football game between Fort Wayne South Side High School and Indianapolis Arsenal Technical High School, IHSAA Commissioner Bobby Cox has placed both teams on probation and suspended several players and coaches.

Both programs were placed on probation for the remainder of the 2013 season and all of the 2014 season. Both head coaches, Emil Ekyior of Arsenal Technical and Eddie Fields of South Side, are suspended for their next varsity football game.
