  • Noblesville's Tyler places 11th at U20 championships in Finland
    7/15/2018 

    An incredible experience came to an end for one Noblesville High School student Sunday.

    Shelby Tyler, who will be a senior this school year, finished in 11th place Sunday in the Women’s High Jump competition at the IAAF World U20 Championships Finals in Tampere, Finland.

    Tyler cleared 1.75m, and 1.80m, but couldn’t hurdle 1.84m.

    The Top 3 all cleared 1.90m and the winner cleared 1.92. All of them were 19 years old.

    Karyna Taranda of Belarus ultimately came away with the title, setting a PB of 1.92m. Maria Fernanda Murillo of Colombia, meanwhile, took the bronze medal behind Ireland’s Sommer Lecky, both ending with bests of 1.90m.

  • Daly finishes 13th in Toronto
    7/15/2018 

    TORONTO — After being announced on Tuesday as Harding Racing’s driver for Sunday’s Honda Indy Toronto, Noblesville native Conor Daly recorded Harding Racing’s best finish of the season with a 13th place result on the streets of Toronto.

    Daly started in the 11th position but lost a few spots on the start and fell to 14th at the end of the first lap. After he fell four more positions on Lap, Daly started his climb back through the field during the pit stop cycle and also thanks to a little bit of chaos.

    A full course yellow was called on Lap 28 for Ryan Hunter-Reay’s stalled car and several cars hadn’t pitted yet. Because the pits are closed when a caution comes out, those cars can’t take advantage of pitting immediately and fall to the rear of the field. That shuffle elevated Daly from 16th to 10th.

    But the chaos didn’t end there.

  • Tyler advances to U20 World finals
    7/13/2018 On to the next round she goes.

    The top 12 rounded headed to the finals include: Karyna Taranda (Belarus), Urte Baikštyte (Lithuania), Martyna Lewandowska (Poland), Sommer Lecky (Ireland), Lavinja Jürgens (Germany), Shelby Tyler (United States), María Fernanda Murillo (Colombia), Maja Helena Nilsson (Sweden), Mariya Kochanova (Authorised Neutral Athlete), Isis K. Guerra (Cuba), Abby Ward (Great Britain), Lamara Distin (Jamaica).
  • Hall of Fame museum names event after Noblesville coach
    7/13/2018 

    Mike Hanna was the first high school vaulter in the state to clear 16 feet. 

    The current Noblesville High School girls pole vaulting coach was also the first Indiana collegiate vaulter to clear 17 feet and the first Indiana State University athlete to win a national championship. He’s being honored with an event in his name, too. 

    The Mike Hanna Street Vault at the Indiana T&F and Cross Country Hall of Fame Museum in Terre Haute is the first of its kind event that’s scheduled to take place July 21. Pole vaulters from across the Midwest will showcase their skills and pay tribute to a man who’s decided to sit this one out. 

    “I’m not going to pole vault,” Hanna said. “They just use my name.” 

    No, Hanna won’t vault. He’s happy with his current path. One he chose to follow to give back to the future of the sport he loves, he said. 

  • Clarity provided to out-of-bounds calls in high school wrestling
    7/13/2018 

    New definitions for inbounds and out of bounds highlight high school wrestling rules changes for the 2018-19 season.

    Beginning next year, a wrestler will be inbounds if two supporting points of either wrestler are inside or on the boundary line. This could be two supporting points of one wrestler or one supporting point of each wrestler that is inside or on the boundary line.

    Changes related to out-of-bounds and inbounds calls, along with rules dealing with uniforms and sportsmanship, were among the rules revisions recommended by the National Federation of State High School Associations (NFHS) Wrestling Rules Committee at its April 2-4 meeting in Indianapolis. All rules changes were subsequently approved by the NFHS Board of Directors.

    The revised definitions for out of bounds and inbounds eliminate subjectivity with the out-of-bounds call without increasing the out-of-bounds area. The removal of “majority of weight” from the definition will allow officials to focus on inbounds and out of bounds rather than having to make a judgment on where the majority of the wrestler’s weight is being supported.
