Lifelong friends Lauren Kellerman and Kade Kobel practice their social distancing over the weekend. The Crawfordsville and North Montgomery pair advanced to the final four of the Montgomery County's Best Senior bracket challenge where Kobel defeated Kellerman to advance to the final.
And then there were four. The senior athlete bracket challenge is down to the final four. The four athletes remaining have all become some of the best to ever wear their respective schools’ uniforms. North Montgomery’s Kade Kobel and Drew Webster, Crawfordsville’s Lauren Kellerman and Southmont’s Lexi Nelson. Kobel will face Kellerman in one semifinal. Kobel has lettered 14 times as a Charger in football, basketball, baseball, and track and field. He was the Journal Review track and field athlete of the year in 2018 after advancing to the state finals in the long jump, and the 2019 football player of the year.

She ran three years of cross country, and lettered as a senior in volleyball. Kellerman also recorded 60 hits in 111 at-bats as a junior softball player last spring. Webster will face Nelson in the other semifinal. Webster was the 2019 Journal Review football player of the year, and is the two-time defending wrestler of the year.
