The 2017 fall season for Mississinewa sports is underway. Coach Funk and the Indian Football team competed Friday in a scrimmage against the Eastern Comets. The Indians look to retain their CIC title and excellent performance last year as they open the season with non-conference play on Friday at Lapel (7:00pm).

Boys and Girls Soccer kicked off their seasons with Jamboree action on Saturday. The Boys, at Eastbrook, competed very well in both periods of play as the Girls traveled to Oak Hill and battled in an afternoon exhibition. Both teams made Mississinewa very proud. Boys Soccer opens up play at Peru tomorrow at 5:00pm. The Lady Indians host Mt. Vernon on Tuesday starting at 6:00pm. You can watch the Lady Indians host Mt. Vernon on Tribe TV, as well as all home matches.
