    On the boys side, Noblesville nabbed fifth while Carmel and Westfield also took top-5 finishes at second and fourth, respectively.

  • 10/12/2018 It was the perfect storm on Friday as Hamilton Heights faced Twin Lakes once again, this time for seventh place in the Hoosier Conference Playoffs. A late score lifted the Huskies to a 21-20 win Friday
    During the first quarter Hamilton Heights made a few mistakes that caused Twin Lakes to score the first touchdown of the night. The Huskies, however weren’t going to let this dampen their spirits. As the Indians scored another touchdown the Huskies were ready to take their lead. With a touchdown from senior, Tad Defoe the score was 7-14. Hamilton Heights now had the chance to settle the score against Twin Lakes. With another touchdown from Isiah Campbell the score was tied at halftime (14-14). 
    Hamilton Heights started with the ball at the third quarter, as they came close to another touchdown they were stopped by Twin Lakes defense. With an Indian touchdown the score was 20-14 with a missed conversion.
  • 10/12/2018 INDIANAPOLIS — As a light sprinkling rain fell on Heritage Christian School’s senior night, the Heritage Christian Eagles soared late over the Sheridan Blackhawks, winning by a score of 27-14.
    In a seven-and-a-half minute opening drive that included a fourth down conversion on their own side of the field and a third-and-12 conversion for another first down, Sheridan quarterback Drake Delph found the end zone on a 12-yard scramble that required tremendous amounts of improvisation. With a successful extra point from Cameron Hovey, the score was 7-0 with 4:34 left in the first quarter.
    After neither offense were productive on their next drives, Heritage Christian marched down the field with Colton Brown charging into the end zone with a 38-yard touchdown run. A missed extra point meant that the score was 7-6 in favor of Sheridan.
    After an unnecessary roughness penalty on the kickoff return brought Sheridan 15 yards closer to scoring, the Blackhawks made quick work moving down the field with Delph putting the exclamation point on the drive with an 11 yard quarterback keeper for the touchdown. Hovey made the extra point to make the score 14-6 in the second quarter.
  • Millers fall after late-game TD
    10/12/2018 The Millers (4-5) were looking to finish the season with a winning record, but were defeated 14-7 by the eighth-ranked Avon Orioles (7-2) after a late-game touchdown pass. Both offenses struggled to move the ball during the matchup, but eventually the Orioles came out on top.
    “We can’t block,” Head Coach Justin Roden said after the game. “We lost a couple guys last week on the offensive line and we’ve not responded. You know, we tried different schemes, different protections, different things to do it, but we just physically don’t matchup size-wise or strength-wise—it’s just frustrating.”
    The Millers took the opening kickoff of the game but, after a quick three-and-out, gave the Orioles the ball on the Noblesville 40-yard line.
    After getting the ball back and going three-and-out on their second drive, a 66-yard punt by senior Jack Knight flipped field position—forcing the Orioles to start from their own 14-yard line.
    Avon fumbled the ball on the second play of the drive and gave the Millers the ball in the red zone.
    Just two plays later, Noblesville’s senior quarterback Grant Gremel threw a 15-yard touchdown pass to senior Zach Gruver—giving the Millers a 7-0 with 3:17 left in the first quarter.
  • Bubbles hiccups, still stellar
    10/12/2018 Hello Sports Fans.
    Week eight produced some definitive upsets. Who thought Franklin Central could top Southeastern? Who thought Fishers would topple Westfield? Heck, it might not’ve been a big upset, but who thought Brebeuf would upend Guerin? Obviously none of the answers above would be me! So a 4-3 week still leaves me with a pretty sterling 36-21 record for the year.
    Without further ado. (Hey, what is an “ado”?) Let’s head to the final week of the regular season.
    Avon at Noblesville
    Look, there are no moral victories, but the Millers looked pretty good against top-ranked Brownsburg last week, falling by 10. The Bulldogs rolled into that game undefeated and averaging 35 points a game. NHS held the second-ranked team in the land to 17 – half their average. Good job, boys! And that also means that Avon, now ranked seventh, doesn’t look as formidable.
  • OUT IN THE OPEN- No Forgetting the Forgotten Coast
    10/11/2018 Be careful what you wish for.
    Apparently, one of my wishes came true but not in the way I wanted.
    As this column is written, the sun is just starting to rise over the rubble of the Florida panhandle after the passing of Hurricane Michael. According to the weather gurus, Michael was the strongest storm to ever hit the Panhandle region and one of the top-five strongest to ever his the U.S.
    I’ve made no secret of my derision of social media but it does work best and serve the highest purpose in the aftermath of a disaster. Though power and phone lines are down throughout the region, people continue to use cellular phones to share pictures of the damage. The visuals are horrifying but even more so if you’ve spent enough time there that you can tell stories “about the time the lady at that house….”
    Both regular readers might recall the region that suffered the brunt of Michael is our home-away-from-home, centered around the twin mega-metropolis’ of Port St. Joe and Mexico Beach, Florida. We’ve been going there for a couple of decades and witnessed “The Forgotten Coast” go from a hidden outdoor paradise to a tourist mecca suffering from the more unseemly side-effects of a mass “Condo Commando” invasion.
    It was there one of our adult children got married on the beach and likewise, a year ago, Your Faithful Correspondent and his lovely bride tied the knot on the white sugar sand of San Blas. We haven’t yet seen a picture but I’m willing to bet the area can now be called “Island San Blas.”
    Aside from some rewarding family adventures, we’ve spent countless days boating, diving, fishing and kayaking the beautiful St. Josephs Bay and Gulf of Mexico. There, in the crystal-clear waters we’ve dove for scallops, caught redfish and sea trout and even been stalked by a gator that thought our green kayak was either a competitor or a possible romantic partner. Fortunately, I didn’t have to coin a new #meto-bygator hashtag.
    However, there was something rotten in paradise. We’ve also been visiting the area long enough to have witnessed the tremendously growing crowds, overcrowded restaurants, dramatic increase in beach trash and significant downturn in the regional fishery.

  • Millers can’t break Bulldogs
    10/5/2018 BROWNSBURG - The Noblesville Millers (4-4) were defeated 17-7 on Friday night by undefeated Brownsburg (8-0)—a team that, coming into the game, averaged over 400-yards of total offense and had scored 34 touchdowns in their first seven wins of the season.
    The Brownsburg Bulldogs were the better team on paper going into matchup but, until late in the third quarter, it actually looked like the Millers might come out on top.
    “We should have been up by two scores at the half,” Head Coach Justin Roden said after the game. “It’s really frustrating that we weren’t. Look, we we’re missing Wyatt Blades tonight whos probably our best wide receiver, our strong safety, and as a matter of fact he’s kind of the glue of our football team.”
    The Millers moved the ball well on their opening drive, moving past the 50-yard line in just a few plays, but they we’re eventually forced to punt from around midfield. A perfect punt by Jack Knight forced Brownsburg to start their opening drive from their own 3-yard line.
    When Noblesville got the ball back for their second drive of the game, the Millers got their passing offense going quickly. A long pass from senior quarterback Grant Gremel to junior wide receiver Jayden Barrett put the Millers on the 2-yard line and set up Gremel to score on a quarterback keeper the very next play. Jack Knight’s point-after-attempt made the score 7-0 with 3:24 left to play in the first quarter.
