    FISHERS - The #13 Royals defeated Lebanon with a score of 4-1 on Wednesday night. Wins for the Royals came at two singles, three singles, one doubles, and two doubles.

    Rohan Golla was first off for the Royals, winning 6-3, 6-0 at #3 singles. 

    “Rohan did a nice job of getting to the net tonight and working on his volley game,” Head Coach Kirk Webber said. 

    Next up for the Royals was the #1 doubles team of Andrew Spirrison and Daniel Verde, winning 6-2, 6-1. 

    “Daniel served very well tonight and Spirrison was exceptional at the net,” Webber said of the tandem.

    The next win for the Royals came from the #2 doubles team of senior duo Logan Hubbard and Jackson Bill, winning 6-1, 6-0. 

    “They did a nice job of coming in and putting pressure on their opponents,” Webber said of the duo. 

    The fourth and final win came from freshman Paul Schneider at #2 singles, winning 6-3, 6-1. 

    “Paul returned very well tonight and did a nice job of mixing in some drop shots,” Webber said of his No. 2 singles player.  
    In the final match, Andrew Orme fell 2-6, 2-6. 

    “Andrew played well, but his opponent was just too good from the baseline, having over 20 winners,” Webber said.  “Even though he lost, I thought

    Andrew played well and he did a nice job of constructing points. He had many close games, but just couldn’t quite get over the hump to gain enough momentum to turn the match around.”

    The Royals improve to 8-6 on the year and will be back in action tomorrow as they travel to Zionsville for the first round of the HCC Championships.

    Here are some things we know and don’t know about the 2019 Indiana high school football season after the first four weeks:

    Will the current Noblesville football team post a win this season?

    The crystal ball is still a bit foggy, says my friend the Football Wizard who has watched a lot of Noblesville football over the years.

    Right now, all that seems certain is that you don’t win if you can’t score points.

    And the Millers haven’t scored many points. Not so far, anyway. They’ve scored 14 points twice; 7 in another; and have been shut out in yet another.

    They are averaging 8.8 points per game . . . and their defensive average is 35.3 points. In addition, Noblesville has rushed for only 292 yards, passed for 124 and produced 130 reception yards. 

    In all fairness to coach Justin Roden and his staff, Noblesville lost a nucleus of good players from the 4-6 team in 2018, and the 2019 team is young and inexperienced in several spots.

    And keep in mind that the Millers started the season 0-4 against a murderous schedule, featuring Cathedral, Carmel, Fishers and Westfield, all ranked teams.

     Regardless, due to Hamilton Heights’ rousing, 36-0 victory over Northwestern last week, Noblesville now finds itself as the lone winless football team in Hamilton County. 

    Can Noblesville turn the tables on Zionsville (2-2) this week? That’s Homecoming for the Millers. Certainly all of the hoopla surrounding that could, and likely should, help the cause.

    Can the Millers defeat Franklin Central or Hamilton SE in road games? Possibly, but keep in mind that those teams have shown much improvement so far this season, and they’re certainly much better, more competitive than they were in 2018. Senior QB Andrew Hobson passed for 259 yards against Fishers.

    What about Brownsburg on the Millers turf on Oct. 11 and then the regular-season finale on Oct. 18 against Avon?

    Those last two are likely much taller orders.

    Noblesville must win its final five games to go 5-4 and secure a rare regular-season winning record. A lot of good things must happen for that to happen. And posting the school’s first winning season since 2001 obviously remains a long shot.

    So back to the crystal ball: All the Football Wizard can see is a shadow of someone scratching his head in all of that fog.

  • 9/16/2019 

    CARMEL – The Westfield Lady Rocks traveled to take on the Carmel Greyhounds on Monday night. Coming in the matchup between the two schools, both teams had a combined total of 26 wins on the season so fans expected to see a competitive match.

    Junior Kenzie Daffinee led the team with 16 kills and four service aces, Peighton Isley anchored the defense with 14 digs and Katie Sweet ended the night with three blocks. The Rocks are back in action Wednesday night at home vs Hamilton Southeastern as their record fell to 12-3 on the season.

    The #13 Royals were able to pick up a win on Monday as they hosted Guerin Catholic.

    The Royals won by a final of 4-1. 

    At #1 singles, Andrew Orme had was victorious 6-0, 6-1. 

    “Andrew did a nice job of varying his shots when his opponent came to the net,” Head Coach Kirk Webber said. “He had some great passes and many good lobs.”

     At #2 singles, freshman Paul Schneider won 6-0, 6-2. 

    “Paul did a very good job of constructing points tonight,” Webber said. “He had multiple volley, overhead, and drop shot winners. He also had seven forehand winners.”

     At #3 singles, freshman Rohan Golla was victorious, winning 6-2, 6-1. 

    “Rohan also did a nice job of building the point, being patient, using angles, and then attacking when the opportunity came,” Webber said of Golla. “He had 22 winners against a very consistent and fast player, which is quite impressive. He also finished points in a variety of ways: short balls, volleys, overheads, and drop shots. Our singles guys are continuing to get better every match.”

    At #1 doubles, Andrew Spirrison and Daniel Verde lost two very close sets. 

    “It was good tennis played at a high level,” Webber said of the duo’s close defeat. “Guerin had two of their stronger players playing doubles (Metzger & Harrington), so it was a good challenge for our team. After a back-and-forth first set, we had a set point up 6-5, but Metzger made a great play on a drop volley by Andrew to keep Guerin alive. Unfortunately, we ended up dropping the set 5-7 in a tiebreaker. Our guys showed some toughness as they kept fighting in the second set. After getting down 1-3, they reeled off 3 straight games to go up 4-3. Unfortunately, Guerin finished strong by getting a late break to take the set 7-5. Andrew & Daniel played very well. Just a few errors was probably the difference in that match.”
