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.

Girls Tennis hosted Muncie Burris last night. Here is what Coach Bruce Fleming had to say, “On Monday, the Ole Miss Tennis team hosted the Owls of Muncie Burris. It was a great match that saw four of the five varsity courts playing three-set matches. With the Indians capturing the #1 singles position in straight sets. all other positions split the first two sets. After Katie Powell and Tyra Stanley won their 3rd set at #1 doubles, Maggie Herring won a traditional third set tie break to give the Indians the team victory. Mississinewa is now 7-2 and will host Madison Grant on Thursday. Their match vs. Western, scheduled for Tuesday this week, was postponed until May 12th.”
