'Mr. Madison-Grant'

Super fan Arlen Hasty travels far and wide to support athletes


Hasty especially enjoys the highlights of the sports his friend Robert Holloway has coached, including boys basketball, girls basketball, and track. Holloway, the current varsity coach for the M-G volleyball team, has won five straight sectional championships. Holloway’s daughter, Kayla, won 58 straight matches as the junior varsity volleyball coach.

“I don’t know of a game I’m talking about that I wasn’t there,” Hasty says.

Many times, Hasty travels alone. But when Holloway, who is an M-G graduate whom Arlen used to watch play, can swing it, they go together and follow a routine.

“Arlen and I have been going to sporting events together for at least the last 15 years or so,” Holloway says. “We basically go to about any type of event. . . . Many people probably think that we go to quite a few high school events together and we do. However, we used to go to Purdue women’s basketball games when Jodi Howell from Alexandria played.

“We also like to go to basketball games in the summer. Our favorite is the Indiana Junior/Senior All-Star games in June. They play twice the week of the Indiana-Kentucky All-Star game. If we don’t have a conflict, we go to both games no matter where they are. Last summer we drove to Sullivan High School. There are usually a couple of things we try to do: be early and make sure we eat on the way.

“A couple of years ago, M-G’s boys basketball team was playing at Alex on the last day of the Madison County tournament. We watched M-G play Liberty Christian and then headed to Pendleton for the finals.”

Hasty reads three newspapers a day, checking on all of the sports, and is watching Tyra Buss, the standout basketball player from Mt. Carmel, Ill. who just declared for Indiana University.
