Center Grove Trojans ready for state

By Nancy Price

The Trojans’ hard work, talent and focus have helped them to proceed to state. After defeating Cathedral High School on Oct. 16 (17-13), the team traveled to Columbus North on Oct. 30, squashing the Bulldogs (42-7). During a home game against Columbus East, on Nov. 6, Center Grove won by a landslide (55-7).  Although Friday the 13th is supposed to be unlucky, the Trojans sealed the deal for semi-state, after a victorious regional win against Warren Central (38-0). The Trojans competed at semi-state on Nov. 20 against the Ben Davis Giants and won, 48-13. State finals will be held Nov. 27 at Lucas Oil Stadium. The Trojans compete against the Westfield Shamrocks at 7 p.m. Good luck, Trojans! Go to for more information.
