Both teams scored 11 points in the third quarter as Carmel was unable to trim the Lady Tigers lead. Fishers put the game away for good in the fourth quarter by outscoring the Greyhounds 21-9.

  • Just give this kid the ball
    1/21/2020 

    Some thoughts, opinions and other notables:

    I watched Friday night’s tape-delayed Hamilton Heights-Lapel game on the TV 40 sports channel.

    I’ve been hearing a lot about Husky junior Gus Etchison, and it marked the first time I’ve seen him in action.

    I liked what I saw. He was terrific.

    The kid has GAME. He can really play. He had 34 points in a 21-point victory. Etchison did pretty much everything but sell popcorn. Very impressive player, indeed.

    And watching him reminded me a great deal of 1970 Carmel Indiana Mr. Basketball David Shepherd, who scored 66 points in a game his senior year.

    Gus has already delivered a 56-point performance this season. 

    Etchison is a 6-foot guard like Shepherd. He’s built like the Greyhound great and he also has black hair, and he plays with much the same flare. He’s quick, pushes the ball relentlessly, can shoot from far-away places, looks for the open man, and made a couple of “oh-wow-did-he-really-do that passes!’’ and he has tremendous upper body strength.

    Etchison also had two break-away dunks. Not sure I ever saw Shepherd dunk.

    The Husky spit-fire is averaging 25.9 points per game, seventh best in the state. He averages 5.8 rebounds, 3.8 assists, 2.0 steals and 0.2 blocks. He shoots 59 percent on 2s and 37 percent on 3s, as well as 75 percent from the foul line.

    Millers take on HCC Rival Zionsville

    ZIONSVILLE – The Lady Millers traveled to Zionsville on Friday night to take on Hoosier Crossroads Conference rival Zionsville as the two teams looked to build momentum heading into the final stretch of their seasons.  

    The third quarter proved to be the deciding factor as the Millers used a 14-5 quarter to help them pick up a 58-48 win. Both teams were dead even at 24-24 heading into halftime. That third quarter allowed the Millers to take control of the game and they didn’t let up in the fourth as they added in 20 more points and didn’t allow the Lady Eagles to comeback. 

    The Millers ended with three players in double figure scoring as Freshman Ashlynn Shade led the way with 20 points to go along with seven rebounds. Shade almost secured a double-double as she once again showed her excellent defensive skills by recording nine steals in the win. Mallory Miller added in 17 points and Abby Haley scored 14 in the win. 

    Freshman Laila Hull ended with 19 points to lead the Eagles in the loss. Katey Richason chipped in 11 points. 

    The win for the Lady Millers improves their record to 8-12 (1-5 HCC) on the season. The team will now have the week off before traveling to Franklin Central next Saturday as they wrap up conference play against the 12-7 Lady Flashes.

Westfield up until the final quarter, where they scored 21 points, were held to quarters of six, nine, and 11 as they Royals defense stifled the Rocks for most of the night.

    The Royals offense much like the Rocks really didn’t get clicking until the fourth.

    Nic Despaquale led the Rocks in scoring with 13 points. Benji Welch added in nine.

    As we head into a new New Year, I wish we could go back when people looked forward to reading newspapers.

    Millennials don’t read newspapers. Plain and simple. They are either hanging out in front of laptops or tablets or clicking on their IPhone, and likely using all of those devices.

    Most readership, especially in a small community, comes from our older folks who basically grew up with newsprint. And you can still get daily news in such communities, like you do in Hamilton County. Still, online publications are beginning to take over.

    I’ve been reading newspapers, especially the sports page, since junior high school. I used to deliver The Sunday Indianapolis Star. We always had The Kokomo Tribune in the Morrow home.

    In fact, if the morning Indy Star wasn’t in our driveway by 6 a.m., my dad turned into an Archie Bunker, and started muttering things young kids shouldn’t have to hear.

    And, too, I cannot remember a time I have not walked out to get my daily morning or evening paper.

    It’s a part of my life, a very big part of my life. I started writing sports for The Tribune the summer before my junior year at KHS.

    I have newspapers in my blood. Always have, always will.

  • 1/15/2020 The Hamilton Southeastern wrestling team wrpped up their road portion of the schedule at Lawrence North. With six starters sidelined with injury and illness, things didn’t look good when the Wildcat Senior night began. The tide quickly turned however as at 120, where injured Senior Jake Simone was out, the Wildcat opponent missed weight handing Sophomore Ryan Hartig a win and the Royals a 6-0 lead.

    The Wildcats regained control with a quick tech fall over fill in Sophomore Cam Thomson and a Fall over another back-up Jake Mundell. Both Thomson and Mundell wrestled tough but we’re simply outmatched putting LN up 11-6. Then the Royals got rolling.
