Castle High School senior golfer Landon Stone, who won the first tourney of his prep career June 11 at the Washington Regional at Country Oaks, has announced that he will continue his career at the University of Southern Indiana.
“USI has been the school of my choice all along,” Stone said. “I love the campus and I love the atmosphere. I see myself having a great future at the University of Southern Indiana.”
He carded a 3-under 69 to earn medalist honors at the Washington Regional, leading the Knights to their first regional title since 1984. They finished 12th at the state meet June 16-17 at Prairie View Golf Club in Carmel.
Former New Harmony girls’ basketball coach and athletic director Larry Kahle has been named North Posey’s girls’ basketball coach. Kahle guided the Rappites to their only two sectional titles in school history, in volleyball in 2001 and girls’ basketball in ’02. Kahle, who retired after the 2010 season, had a combined total of more than 300 wins as a boys’ and girls’ coach.
“We are confident that coach Kahle will continue to build on the successful girls’ basketball program at North Posey,” said North Posey athletic director Virgil Ferguson. “His experience as a head coach is beyond reproach.”
Kahle served as the Vikings’ girls’ basketball freshman coach last season. He replaces Tracy Stroud, who resigned earlier this year to take a sales position with Elbert Construction. Stroud posted a 94-69 record in seven years at North Posey, including back-to-back Class 2A sectional titles in 2014 and ’15.
