  • State Finals' rivalries set to be renewed
    2/23/2018 Jared Holder was surprised he qualified for the IHSAA Boys Swimming State Finals last season. This year, the Hamilton Heights junior expected he’d make it. 

    Holder earned his place at the 2018 State Finals with state times in the 50 freestyle (21.27) and the 100 backstroke (49.98) — both school records. He’ll race in Friday’s preliminaries at the Natatorium at IUPUI looking to advance to Saturday’s finals for the first time. The last remaining Husky swimmer, Holder’s also racing for more than just himself. 

    “It’s such an honor to represent the school and the community,” Holder said. “I’m not just representing myself — I’m representing something much bigger.”

    Holder will face stiff — although familiar — competition in both of his events. 
  • Fishers can't end Warren Central's undefeated season
    2/23/2018 Warren Central opened Thursday’s contest at Fishers in style and finished in domination on its way to a 67-39 win and an undefeated regular season. 

    On the first play of the game, Warriors’ guard Dean Tate lobbed an alley-oop that teammate David Bell through down for a slam. Warren Central (25-0) scored the first 10 points of the night, before Fishers (11-11) was able to get a pair of free throws from junior Terry Hicks with just over six minutes in the first. 

    The Tigers didn’t fold, however, and cut the score to 21-14 after one quarter of play. Hicks, who finished with a team-high 16 points, and senior Jeremy Szilagyi led a Fishers’ charge that brought the margin to just two at 23-21. That would be the closest the Tigers would get the rest of the way. 

    Warren Central answered Fishers’ rally with a 13-1 run sparked by the tenacious defense the Warriors have displayed all season. 
  • 2/23/2018 Noblesville benefited from some much needed reinforcements Thursday night, as the Millers snapped a three-game skid with a 52-42 win at Perry Meridian. 

    After missing the last two games, senior Ryan Barnes and juniors Xavier Hines and Eagan Keever-Hill returned to the court and helped spur Noblesville (10-13) to a victory in its last regular season game. The trio finished with six, 15 and two points, respectively. 

    Junior Zack Johnson led the Millers in scoring with a game-high 22 points on 6-of-9 shooting. Johnson also made both of his 3-point attempts, while Hines knocked down three deep balls. 
  • Athlete of the Week: Haley Cook

    The Wolverine-Hoosier Athletic Conference (WHAC) announced its conference honors for women's basketball Thursday, and a familiar face brought home some hardware. Haley Cook of Indiana Tech, and former Hamilton Heights 1,000-point scorer, was named WHAC Player of the Year averaging 18.3 points per game and leading the NAIA in 3-point field goals made (115).

    The lefty-shooting guard helped lead No. 9 Indiana Tech (27-3, 18-2) to a WHAC regular season championship, which included an 18-game winning streak along the way. Cook also earned a spot on the conference’s all-academic team, as well as on First-Team All-Conference. 

  • OUT IN THE OPEN: The Dam Fishermen

    It has been said that there are three kinds of liars: liars, damn liars and fishermen. I would submit that there is a fourth: dam fishermen. 

    This topic came to mind yesterday at the Ford Indianapolis Boat, Sport and Travel Show, when I was talking to someone about the tailwater fishery that will soon be heating up. If you weren’t aware, walleye and sauger, the equally-tasty half-pint cousin of the walleye, start stacking like cordwood against the downstream face of many Hoosier dams during the next few months. 

    Now that my left leg is healed and the nasty case of lockjaw from last season has finally cleared up, I will share a few lessons on tailwater fishing from a veteran (meaning: permanently disfigured) dam fishing expert.

  • Noblesville grad earns Champions of Character honor
    2/22/2018 RICHMOND, Indiana – Noblesville graduate Haley Conway represented Indiana University East on the River States Conference women’s basketball Champions of Character team, the league announced Wednesday.

    Student-athletes selected for the team embody the NAIA’s Champions of Character core values of Respect, Responsibility, Integrity, Servant Leadership and Sportsmanship. 

    Conway has helped IU East to a 22-9 record and the No. 26 ranking in the NAIA Division II Women’s Basketball Coaches Poll. IU East plays at Alice Lloyd College on Feb. 24 in a River States Conference tournament semifinal.
  • University sharpshooter hopes to represent Indiana at Final Four
    2/22/2018 Your vote can help University High School senior Natalie Nickless represent Indiana through the High School 3-point Championship, held during this year’s NCAA Final Four in San Antonio. 

    After the first round of voting, the field has been narrowed to eight players from across the nation, with two Hoosiers remaining in the competition. The winner is determined through the #DreamFearlessly Fan Vote Competition — and a trip to Texas would make Nickless’ dreams come true. 

    “Being able to participate in the national 3-point contest has been a dream of mine since I was a little kid,” Nickless said. “I'm not sure I ever really felt it was attainable, considering I go to a 1A high school with only about 300 students. So, when Intersport, the company running the competition, contacted me about an opportunity to compete for a spot, I was ecstatic.” 
  • Noblesville's Brown verbally commits to Loyola
    2/22/2018 Noblesville junior Abby Brown recently announced her verbal commitment to play softball at Loyola University Chicago and will sign her letter of intent when she becomes a senior. 

    Brown said Loyola was the first offer she received, and she would’ve chosen the university over anywhere else because of its environment. 

    “Any committed athlete I’ve ever talked to says that once you find your right school you will automatically know,” she said. “I got that feeling as soon as I stepped on campus for the first time."
  • Cross verbally commits to Manchester
    2/22/2018 Hamilton Heights senior Michael Cross announced his verbal commitment to play football at Manchester University and is scheduled to officially sign with the school March 7. 

    “I chose Manchester because they seem like they have a great football program along with a great coaching staff,” Cross said. “I truly believe they are heading in the right direction and seem to be getting better. I wanted to be a part of the success they have been gaining and hopefully help them win a few championships.” 

    Cross received invitations to go on visits to Earlham, Anderson University, Millikin University, Hanover, Lakeland University in Wisconsin and Manchester. He visited Manchester, Hanover and Lakeland, he said, before narrowing it down to Lakeland and Manchester. 

    “It was awesome to have a lot of schools and coaches interested in me, but at the same time it was hard,” Cross said. 
  • Harlem Wizards rock The Mill

    Ferocious dunks, acrobatic alley-oops, trick shots, wedgies, body slams and not a lick of defense – clearly it was not Noblesville coach Brian McCauley’s boys nor coach Donna Buckley’s girls taking the floor on Wednesday night at The Mill.

    No, instead it was another entertaining showing from the world-famous Harlem Wizards.

    The Wizards, a comedic but uber-talented traveling basketball troupe, played a game against a team of Noblesville Schools’ principals, assistant principals and teachers coached by Superintendent Beth Niedermeyer. Proceeds from the game went to the Noblesville Schools Education Foundation (NSEF).

    “The Education Foundation is the nonprofit that supports the entire school district,” said NSEF Executive Director Adriann Young. “So we do scholarships, education grants, all sorts of things to really help the school district be successful.”

    Raising funds, along with alley-oops, is what the Wizards do best. The team has been traveling the country since 1962, putting on fundraising events for schools and nonprofit organizations. According to the group’s website, its teams played in more than 400 communities and raised more than 2 million dollars just last year.
