NEW DELTA HEAD COACH

Former Ball State Cardinal now leading Delta Girls' Basketball

After being a standout basketball player for Muncie Southside High School, Ty’Ronda Benning played two seasons of women’s basketball at Lincoln Trail Community College. But at the end of her second year, she wanted to return to her hometown. She decided to transfer to Ball State University. Years later, she hopes to bring that mentality to her new job as Delta High School’s girls’ varsity head basketball coach.

8 in ‘88: A look back at Muncie Central’s 1988 state basketball championship team

Coming into the 1987-88 season, Muncie Central had seven state championships to their name, but they hadn’t had any since 1979 when they took down conference rival Anderson in the state championship game. The Bearcats made it all the way to Market Square Arena and won their eighth state championship in school history. Thirty-five years after the team in purple raised the state championship trophy, players and fans look back on that team.

You would think it’s just an old, uninteresting building; however, it is the gym of my high school, New Castle High School. And on this day, it was the location of the high school basketball sectional championship game, and our hometown New Castle Trojans had a chance to win and continue our hopes for a state championship.
