  • Sheridan comes up just short at Frankton
    2/24/2018 Sheridan ended its regular season with a nail-biting loss at Frankfort Friday night. 

    Senior Ange Gnamkey led the Blackhawks in scoring with 20 points, but it wasn’t enough as the Eagles held on late for a 56-54 win. 

    Frankton led 21-19 after one and extended its advantage to 34-30 at the half. Sheridan locked down in the third quarter, outscoring Frankton 12-8, to lock the score at 42 heading into the final stanza. 

    Kayden Key finished with a game-high 25 points for Frankton (20-3). The junior made 8-of-12 from the field. 
  • Noblesville lacrosse ready for first varsity club season

    For the first time since its inception almost two decades of existence, lacrosse will be recognized as a varsity club sport by Noblesville High School when the Millers lace up in early March. 

    The move has been on the club board’s agenda for several years, and its impact could help boost a sport that has done well in the city. 

    “We’re still trying to work on building a program and not just a team,” said boys varsity coach Kyle Kreutzinger. “I think that with the help of the athletic department it’ll be that much easier to be able to build.” 

    The most important — at least for the coaches — new advantage is the club’s access to the high school’s trainers.

  • Swim State Finals prelims
    2/24/2018 The Greyhounds started their quest for a fourth straight IHSAA Boys Swimming and Diving State Championship in style Friday night at the Natatorium at IUPUI. 

    Carmel's Wyatt Davis, Stefano Batista, Drew Kibler and Andrew Couchon began the preliminaries with a new state-record (1:28.00) in the 200 medley relay. The time, which is the No. 2 all-time mark in the nation (1:27.74), was just under the state record that Zionsville set last year. 

    Kibler did set a new national record in the 50 freestyle (19.38) and is seeded first in today’s finals. Couchon (20.55) and Westfield’s Chris Kenney (20.86) both advanced to the final heat, too, with fifth and sixth-place finishes, respectively. Jared Holder, the lone swimmer from Hamilton Heights, finished in a three-way tie for 13th (21.19) and will advance to the consolation heat for the first time. 
  • 2/23/2018 Colts fans could see history this season. 

    The NFL franchise announced Thursday they’ve agreed to a one-year deal with place-kicker Adam Vinatieri.

    Vinatieri, who’s spent his last 12 years in Indianapolis, is just 58 points away from passing Morten Andersen (2,544) for the top spot on the NFL's career scoring list. He also only needs seven field goals to break Andersen's record of 565. 

    The deal is worth $3.625 million, ESPN’s Adam Schefter reported. 
  • 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.
