‘Miss Automatic’: Sprunger closing in on school kicking record at Adams Central

High School Sports

MONROE, Ind. (WANE) – Inside this helmet, there’s no stray, wandering or wide-left thoughts. There’s only Bailea Sprunger’s ponytail. 

The senior girl kicker for Adams Central isn’t just good, she’s perfect this season on extra points. Sprunger has drilled 27-of-27 point after attempts and is just 6 shy of the all-time school record. 

For the Jets, they don’t have a ‘Mr. Automatic,’ it’s ‘Miss Automatic’ to them. 

Adams Central takes on rival South Adams on Friday night. Each have a perfect 5-0 record – and the outcome could very well be decided by a kick. 

Sprunger also plays soccer and runs for Adams Central. Her athletic background is strong and she got the idea to come out and play football while on the track. 

Any skepticism of her abilities quickly faded once she stepped on the field. The Jets are averaging 42 points per game this season which keeps Bailea busy on Friday nights.
