  • 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.

  • 2/21/2018 The Indiana High School Athletic Association has suspended eight Hamilton County basketball players for a violation of rules. 

    Six players from Noblesville and two from Hamilton Heights recently played in basketball games at the Noblesville Boys & Girls Club. According to IHSAA by-law 15-1.2a, athletes aren’t allowed to participate in “any organized non-school sports competition during the season, or at any time prior to the conclusion of the student’s participation in the IHSAA Tournament Series.” 

    IHSAA Sports Information Director Jason Wille said a seventh Noblesville player has been removed from the program by the school. “It’s my understanding,” Wille said, “that the seventh player had been doing this in previous years as well.” 
  • Guerin looking for new girls basketball coach

    Guerin Catholic is looking for a new varsity girls basketball coach. 

    Matt Lane, the school’s athletic director, confirmed Wednesday that Dave Roth won’t return as the Lady Golden Eagles’ head coach next season and that “the position is open and posted.”

    Roth led Guerin to a 6-18 record this season, which included a first-round win over Brebeuf Jesuit Preparatory in their Class 3A sectional. In two seasons at Guerin, Roth guided the Golden Eagles to a 13-36 record. 

  • Westfield falls on Senior Night
    2/21/2018 Westfield led once, briefly, in the Shamrocks’ Senior Night loss to Mt. Vernon Tuesday. 

    After Westfield (10-12) took a 4-3 lead a couple minutes into the first quarter, Mt. Vernon (12-9) went on an 8-0 run and never looked back on its way to a 65-59 win. 

    The Shamrocks didn’t go down without a fight, though. Senior Josh Van Dyke led Westfield in points with 18 and was one of three Shamrocks’ in double-figures. Junior Zach Banks finished with 13, and junior Caleb Welch chipped in 11. The trio combined to knock down nine of Westfield’s 11 makes from behind the 3-point arc.
