The Noblesville Times 24-7
  • 8/22/2019 

    The Millers began their 2019 season with a trip to #7 ranked Carmel on Thursday night. The energy inside Murray Stadium was electric. The boys fed off this energy and came out with high intensity. At the opening kickoff, the Millers played a long ball into Drew Barnes who slotted in Harry Christman for a chance on net. He was denied but it was a strong start for the Millers.

    However, this energy quickly turned to nerves as the Millers started losing their identity on the field. A defensive break down saw a Carmel attacker break through the back line and get taken down inside the box. Carmel was awarded a penalty kick. Luckily for the Millers, the Carmel attacker hit the outside of the post and missed his opportunity. Carmel continued to press in the first half. A failed clearance by the Millers in the 22nd minute saw Carmel bag the first goal of the game. The Greyhounds would take a 1-0 lead into halftime.

    In the second half, the Millers came out more poised and started completing passes. This led to many better chances. Drew Cochran was on the other end of free kick that saw a thundering header sail just over the bar. Finally, with 3 minutes to go in the game and still down 1, Colin Todd made a nice run up the left flank. He ended up getting fouled just outside the penalty area. Senior captain Jack Miller calmly stepped up and drilled an in-swinger near post to beat the Carmel goalkeeper and level the score at 1.

    Carmel made it very

     interesting in the final minute by drawing a foul 30 yards out. Their free kick once again hit the outside of the post and harmlessly went out of bounds, preserving a 1-1 draw as the game clock struck zeroes.

    The Millers are back in action at home on Tuesday, August 27th against Avon. It is Teacher Appreciation night where some of the boys' greatest teachers from Noblesville Schools will be recognized for their continued commitment to educating Noblesville students.

    For the Greyhounds they will be back in action on Saturday as they travel to take on the fifth ranked Hamilton Southeastern Royals.

    The Hamilton Heights Huskies volleyball team hosted the Sheridan Blackhawks Thursday evening and were able to pick up their third victory in a row winning in straight sets 25-20, 25-9, and 25-18.

    Jordan Fryman would lead the Husky offense with 12 total kills in the win while Kennedy McGill would end the night with five aces. Kelsey Smith would give have 12 of her 19 total served in in points for the Huskies.

    The win improves their record to 3-1 on the season with a trip to Cardinal Ritter on Saturday to play in the Cardinal Ritter Invitational.

    The Blackhawks would be lead on defense by Becca Merrit who finished her night with five blocks. Abbi Clouser would have four total digs on the night, and Kaiden Wilson would have four kills, two aces and a block for the Blackhawks.

    The loss drops the Blackhawks record to 0-3 on the season as the team is still looking for its first win. They will travel to Shenandoah on a Saturday for tournament play starting a 9 a.m.

    Lady Millers fall to Bishop Chatard

    After a loss to Mt. Vernon on Wednesday night the Lady Millers hosted Bishop Chatard in hopes of getting back on the winning track.

    However Bishop Chatard would end up winning the match in four sets 25-13, 23-25, 25-17, and 25-17.

    For the Millers Bella Hines had a good game dishing out assists to her teammates as she would end the game with 26 assists. Lexie Almodovar would lead the offensive charge ending her night with 17 kills, while Rose Crist ended with 11. Almodovar would also contribute nine digs on the night while Diana Cox and Abby Johnson both finished with 8 digs of their own.

    The loss puts the Millers record at 1-2 on the season. They will be back in action on Tuesday night as they travel to Pendleton Heights High School to take on the Arabians at 7 p.m.

  • Turn on those Friday Night Lights!
    8/22/2019 

    The long wait is over, finally!

    Indiana High school football kicks off today at 7 p.m.

    One Hamilton County home game of particular interest should be at Noblesville, where the former Hare Chevrolet Field has been renamed Beaver Materials Field.

    One thing will remain the same when Class 5A No. 2 Cathedral comes calling for the 2019 opener. Bob Tremain will be seated in the press box as usual. He begins his 25th season announcing Noblesville Millers football.

    That’s a long time. What a milestone . . . yeah, and that’s a BIG deal. A really BIG deal!

    The Millers plan to honor him in the regular-season-ending home game on Oct. 11.

    And Noblesville Schools will commemorate 150 years of excellence during the 2019-20 school year.

    “It’s a great day to be a Miller!’’ said Tremain, a former teacher and Girls Athletic Director at Noblesville High School.

    Hopefully, there won’t be a similar outcome to last season’s opener against the Irish at Lucas Oil Stadium. That ended in favor of Cathedral, 31-7. Noblesville should certainly have much incentive. And hopefully the Millers can add plenty of excitement in what could be a big-time game for them.

    Not sure how tough Cathedral is this season, though the Irish are usually good and competitive. The program also has produced 12 state champions, the last coming in 2014. And that preseason ranking is impressive. The Irish are ranked right behind defending state champion New Palestine in the Coaches’ poll.

    The Irish are young and inexperienced in some areas, similar to Noblesville. But Cathedral does have a proven quarterback in Orin Edwards. He threw for 2,500-plus yards and 23 touchdowns last year as a junior. He also scrambles well. One would think that containing him looms imperative for the Millers.

    Noblesville has a pair of 3-year starters in offensive linemen Cam Knight and receiver Jayden Barrett. Junior receiver Zach Blevins and fullback Elijah Butler, a senior move-in from Toledo, Ohio, could play a big role on offense. More experience comes at linebacker, led by Jacob Hamm; and in the secondary, led by Aidan Richardson and Carson Sanders.

    The Hamilton Heights Volleyball team was able to improve 2-1 on the season Wednesday night as the the Lady Huskies hosted the Lebanon Tigers and came away with a three set sweep 25-22, 25-20, and 25-8.

    Katie Mottweiler picked up 14 total points and had 22 serves on the night to help the Huskies come out on top. Also the tandem of Kelsey Smtih, Lexi Hayden, Kennedy McGill, Jordan Fryman and Mottweiler would combine to earn 27 total kills between the five ladies.

    The Huskies will be back in action tonight as they will travel to Sheridan High School to match up against the Blackhawks. The match is scheduled to get underway at 7:30 p.m.

    Greyhounds come away with competitive sweep

    The Lady Greyhounds also improved to 2-1 after they hosted Roncalli on Wednesday night. Roncalli wouldn’t make it easy for the Greyhounds, but in the end the team was able to come out with a 3-0 victory, 27-25, 25-19, and 26-24.

    Anne Lesure would have a great all-around night for the Greyhounds as she would finish the game with 20 assists and 10 kills. She would also add two aces in the winning effort. Maria Zweig and Lexi Brehl would lead the defensive charge for the Lady Greyhounds as Zweig would finish with 14 digs, and Brehl nine digs.

    The Greyhounds will have two days off before hosting the Carmel Round Robin on Saturday morning which will get underway at 10 a.m.

  • Tod Windlan eager to make mark coaching Lady Kats
    8/20/2019 

    Strange how things can change . . .  and then seem to happen for a reason.

    Tod Windlan, recently named the varsity girls basketball coach at Kokomo High School, might still be coaching girls basketball at Hamilton Heights had things worked out.

    But after leading the Class 3A Lady Huskies to a state runner-up finish in the 2012-13 season, a year after winning school’s first girls sectional title since 2002-2003 in his first season at the Hamilton County school, finding the right teaching job didn’t work out for him.

    “I interviewed for the PE job and I was devastated when I didn’t get it. And I was wanting to get out of the golf business,’’ said Windlan, who was the PGA Club professional at Grandview in Anderson, his hometown. “The only job available involved maintenance and outside athletic work; it wasn’t enough (not a career move).

    “I loved it at Heights. I loved the community and the people, and we had a good girls’ basketball program there. I really could have seen myself retiring there under the right circumstances. Now, I feel the same about Kokomo. I really love my new opportunity!’’

    Windlan originally was the girls coach at Frankton for four years. He was at Anderson Highland for two years, but there was no teaching vacancy when the Anderson schools merged. He was at Yorktown and Delta, each for 1 year.

    You might say he had some bad luck at some of his previous stops.

    Things happen for a reason . . .

    Since June, 53 teams answered the call, collecting 1,467 total blood donations across the state in the 2019 Colts Leadership Challenge.
