Portage Indiana Sports
VacationA suburban school district is celebrating the holiday season this week with a celebration for its football team. Two fire trucks from the area extended their ladders to host Hometown Heroes night and hoisted a giant American flag as members of the Crown Point football team took to the field before Friday night's game. Portage High School football players and their families wait for their team to arrive as they enter the field before Friday's home game against Crown Point.
The first school in Portage Township was a log schoolhouse on the corner of what is now McCool and Robbins Roads. Construction of the new Portages High School began in the early 1990s and cost about $1.5 million. Wooden beams for guidance were embedded in the barns that stood on the grounds before the construction of the high school. The building was evacuated and spent about two hours in a reservoir on the grounds in front of the school.
At the time, the district said it was reevaluating the situation to make changes to its spectator policy. The district has since shared the crowd restrictions on its Facebook page and on the school's website.
The Portage Athletics Department will do everything possible to obtain information from the coaches about the expectations for the upcoming road games in January and February. If something happens near you that people in your neighborhood need to know, why not file it today? If your employer offers a donation or grant program, please refer us to know what we can do with it. There is a city planner calendar in the area, so look for good business opportunities if you are interested.
We are delighted that our families are involved as sponsors in the development of the club and see this as an amazing opportunity to bring the IEFC family and community together and allow football and the many opportunities it offers to pave the way for children and future generations to thrive.
If you would like to include your own home image in the calendar, please contact your local publisher for more information. This facility would allow the IEFC to bring a competitive tournament team to our region, to develop our young players, coaches and staff, and to provide our players with additional contacts with scouts. The impact of this on the local football community and the community as a whole would be far-reaching.
Finally, we wish you all the best and look forward to the rest of the winter sports season with you and all of you.
Since August it has been an extreme pleasure to see our students - athletes and coaches - running athletics under very difficult circumstances. We commend them for their hard work, dedication and dedication, and we cannot function without being able to overcome obstacles and obstacles. The students are grateful for the opportunity we give them to participate in these activities, and our enthusiasm is shared daily.
As a spectator, I understand how hard it is for parents to miss out on the chance to take part in a sport that they enjoy. We teach our players discipline and dedication to learn the skills needed to take their game to a new level, and we form a coaching staff that is as passionate about the sport as our students, coaches and athletes.
We are currently planning a brand new football hall in Portage to provide our IEFC athletes with new and exciting competition opportunities, and we want to reach out to parents and give them the opportunity to join the club and support their athletes in building this amazing complex. The Portages Community School District has decided to allow parents to play sports at home starting Friday, January 8. We offer free entry to the game and all members of the Portage football team receive special jerseys that they can wear from the Army National Guard.
The Portage Indians got off to a good start in the first quarter and took a 7-0 lead after senior quarterback Zack Warchus opened the game with a TD pass to senior wide receiver Scott Hansen. In the next series, Crown Point took over at the 44-yard line and marched down with a mixture of passing and running play. Then they put together a time-consuming 17-play drive that was abruptly ended by a Will Pettit pass that nailed Portage's pass to his own 10-yard line.
The Indians and Bulldogs exchanged three more possessions before the Bulldogs finally added a late second-quarter drive that ended with an 80-yard run through the middle of the field by Will Pettit and his second rushing touchdown with 22 seconds left in the first half. He caught a 14-yard touchdown pass to Trestan Logan. And then Mathew Walters had a 20-yard run on his next drive with 8: 35 left in the final quarter. After an incomplete pass, Indians QB Zack Warchus hit a pass through a CP defender and put Portage up 17-16 with 4: 59 left in the fourth quarter, this time running 80 yards in midfield and running behind the CP defenders for a touchdown that gave Portage a 17-16 lead with 6: 45 left and the game tied at 14: 12.
