The Noblesville Times 24-7
  • 11/18/2018 Ball State baseball head coach Rich Maloney announced that eight student-athletes, including a local athlete have announced their commitment to the Cardinals for the 2019-20 academic year – Mac Ayres, Zach Cole, Cade Fitzpatrick, Tyler Hill, Devin Porter, Luke Schafer, Tyler Schweitzer and Adam Tellier.
    This year’s additions feature four pitchers, two infielders, one outfielder and one catcher.
    “We feel like we met all of the needs we had, but with guys who can become legitimate prospects,” Maloney said. “That’s what we are after in this program, trying to find guys who have aspirations to play at the next level. The other thing is we found a lot of guys who are solid academically. I think the balance between academics and athletics and the possibility of developing into professional baseball players is strong in this class.”
    Schweitzer is a local product from Fishers. The left-handed pitcher went 3-1 with one save in nine appearances for Hamilton Southeastern High School a year ago.
    “Tyler has a very good breaking ball and strong upside,” Maloney said.

  • 11/16/2018 Indiana fifth-year senior J-Shun Harris II is one of 20 semifinalists for the second annual Jason Witten Collegiate Man of the Year Award.
    Compiled by a subset of the Jason Witten Collegiate Man of the Year Selection Committee, the semifinalists have all demonstrated a record of leadership by exhibiting exceptional courage, integrity and sportsmanship both on and off the field.
    Three finalists will be named for the award on Monday, Dec. 10. The winner will be announced at the award ceremony on Feb. 12, 2018, at The Star in Frisco, Texas.
    The award, presented by Albertsons and Tom Thumb, is the first college football honor to focus primarily on a player's leadership, both on and off the field. Leadership is a term synonymous with Jason Witten, who, in addition to becoming one of the best tight ends in the history of the sport and the Cowboys' all-time leading receiver, served as one of football's most prominent role models during his 15-year pro career. In addition to winning the Walter Payton NFL Man of the Year Award in 2012, Witten also received the Bart Starr Award, Pro Football Weekly's Humanitarian of the Year Award, Home Depot NFL Neighborhood MVP and the Bob Lilly Award, among many others. All of those honors have recognized his work in the community, achievements on the field and dedication to his teammates and family.
  • 11/16/2018 Fishers used a fast first quarter to jump ahead of Westfield on the way to a 51-40 girls’ basketball win at home Friday. The Lady Tigers outscored the Lady Shamrocks 15-6 in the first and 14-12 in the third in an otherwise even contest. 
    Katie Burton paced the Fishers offense with 21 points while also pulling down seven boards. Kaitlynn Feagan tossed in 10 points for the Lady Tigers. Lydia Stulken grabbed seven rebounds. 
    Westfield had balanced scoring on the night. Ava Henson led the way with 11 points. Alyssa Crockett was right behind her with 10 points while Jade Shipley and Gigi Eldredge each accounted for eight. Regan Dimond drilled a 3-pointer on the night. 
    It’s the first loss of the season for Westfield (4-1). They’ll play at Kokomo tonight. No. 11 Fishers remains perfect (6-0) and goes to Zionsville Tuesday. 
  • Out in the Open- Hurricanes Change Everything
    11/16/2018 Author’s Note: This story is from two years ago and concerns one of my most memorable camping trips. I wanted to revisit it one more time, as a memorial to the good times, because everything mentioned here is now gone due to Hurricane Michael.
    I once wrote a column that started with paraphrased dialog from the movie Apocalypse Now: “I wanted an adventure and for my sins, I got one.”
    Unfortunately, that great opening line was used several years too soon because now I don’t have anything really catchy to start this week’s story so we’ll just say: I’ve Been to Hell.
    It started with “The Idea,” one of the most dangerous concepts ever devised. Over beverages at a local watering hole, several of us decided a fishing/tent camping to Florida in August was just what we needed to shake off the accumulating dust of cloying domestication.
    Tent camping in Florida during the summer isn’t such a crazy idea because ten years ago I found a secluded campground beside a glorious white sand beach. It was a reasonable facsimile of paradise and more importantly, the steady ocean breezes offered by the wide-open stretch of sand gave wonderful respite from the brutal heat.
    So, blithely and light of heart, four of us set out at 10 p.m., loaded with kayaks and camping gear for an unseen rendezvous with infamy and prickly heat.

  • OUT IN THE OPEN- A Tale of Two Trips
    11/8/2018 I’ve been cloistered over the last few weeks and frankly, it was getting tiresome. That’s why, in the spirit of “All work and no play makes magazine editors go CRAAAAZZY!!,” it was high time to venture outdoors.
    My first outing was an auspicious occasion: the christening of our new boat. 
    Both regular readers know that I’ve had a lifelong love/hate relationship with watercraft. Now slightly past the half-century mark, I’ve nearly been struck by lightning once, almost drowned twice, been stranded in the middle of desolate lakes several times and smelled the cold breath of impending death on too many water-borne excursions to count. Fortunately, I’ve been wrong so far.
    At the other end of the scale, watercraft have been the centerpiece for many of the happiest moments of my existence. I’ve had a front-row waterside seat for dolphins, eagles, sea turtles, otters, manta rays, manatees and all manner of various other aquatic critters. I’ve shot “flying carp” with a bow in Kentucky, kayaked the Niagara River, spent a week paddling in the Boundary Waters and sailed a wooden ketch off Hilton Head Island. Along the way I’ve witnessed unbelievable sunrises, indescribable sunsets and floated along quietly at midnight, seemingly suspended among the stars of the universe. 
  • 11/8/2018 INDIANAPOLIS – The Westfield girls’ basketball team used a strong first half to defeat Lawrence Central by 12 points on Tuesday night, 54-42.
    Ashtin DeCraene led the Lady Shamrocks in points with 13 while adding four rebounds and one assist. Alyssa Crockett finished with 12 rebounds, six points, six blocks, five assists and two steals on the night.
    Westfield is off to a 3-0 start for the first time since the 2015-2016 season and will look to stay undefeated in a home matchup against New Castle today at 7:30 p.m.
