Younger players step up for GCHS

Double-doubles from returning veterans Aaron Brennan and Whit Rapp. Brennan, the 6-6 junior forward finished with 23 points and 10 rebounds. Point guard Rapp had 11 boards and 13 assists. Another junior, 6-5 Cris Burrough, chipped in with 16 points and seven boards.

Just another day at the office for Coach Pete Smith's defending Class 3A state champion Golden Eagles as they began the season with a 60-44 licking of visiting Indianapolis Washington last evening at the Eagles Nest.

It wasn't a great performance by the Eagles against a lightning quick Washington team. But, after all, it was Guerin's opening game. And, afterall, while Washington played with eight seniors, Guerin played with none. The entire Guerin senior class of 200, including four basketball seniors, were on a retreat.

"One, maybe two of the seniors would have started," said Smith.

Guerin Catholic led only 26-19 at halftime, and then exploded on a 21-8 run in the third quarter.

"We came out and did some things better in the second half," Smith continued. "We focused better. Some of the kids got the first varsity game thing out of their system.

"Brennan had a tough night; not a Brennan-type night," said Smith. "He had a little trouble finishing.

"We played a lot more zone tonight than I wanted, but we didn't have much depth, so we had to play some zone," the coach added.

Brennan scored just five points in the first half and then exploded in the second half. With Brennan and Burrough controlling the boards, Guerin Catholic came away with a 43-35 rebounding edge over Washington.

"Washington has eight seniors, and they are a very athletic team," said Smith.

Guerin Catholic got help from a pair of sophomores starting their first varsity games. Nick Sahm popped for nine points and Matt Labus threw in eight.

Guerin Catholic's next game also is against an Indianapolis school when the Eagles host Broad Ripple on Dec. 4.
