Oak Hill eliminates Madison-Grant

(Continued)

FAIRMOUNT, Ind. —

Barr was disappointed with the loss, feeling the Argylls were close to a breakthrough. He took over the program in June, a short turnaround for a new coach and staff. Barr lauded his senior class for sticking with the program through a rough time.

“The coach (former coach Beau Engle) left in May, the kids met me in June,” Barr said. “That’s a tough go for seniors, and then we didn’t come out winning, but those kids stuck with it. That’s a high character group of young men, work ethic, leadership, I could not be prouder. They set the bar for the future of this program.”

The Argylls will lose several members of their offensive line along with Purkey but will return some key skill position players. The Argylls also battled through weeks of injuries and illness, including this week when Barr had 25 of 44 players in pads for practice.

“We need to get in the weight room and get stronger,” Barr said. “We’re going to press on, and we’ve got some good kids.”

Argyll seniors include Austin Purkey, Griffin Engle, Drew Smith, Curtis Presnall, Conner Martin, John Finley, John Hanes, Alex Garringer, Adam Gibson and Bryce Wilson.

Oak Hill (7-3) advances to play Bluffton in next week’s semifinals.

    Contrary to popular belief, sometimes numbers do lie. Logan Weins surrendered nine hits and seven runs in the final start of his high school career — a sectional championship loss against Class 2A state champion Wapahani — and nobody argues those figures. But they don't tell the whole story.
