    CHICAGO — In its 33rd year of honoring the nation’s best high school athletes, The Gatorade Company, today announced Amy Dilk of Carmel High School as its 2017-18 Gatorade Indiana Girls Basketball Player of the Year. Dilk is the first Gatorade Indiana Girls Basketball Player of the Year to be chosen from Carmel High School.

    The award, which recognizes not only outstanding athletic excellence, but also high standards of academic achievement and exemplary character demonstrated on and off the field, distinguishes Dilk as Indiana’s best high school girls basketball player. Now a finalist for the prestigious Gatorade National Girls Basketball Player of the Year award announced in March, Dilk joins an elite alumni association of past state girls basketball award-winners, including Maya Moore (2005-06 Collins Hill HS, Ga.), Rashanda McCants (2004-05, Asheville HS, N.C.), Candace Parker (2001-02, Naperville Central HS, Ill.), Diana Taurasi (1998-99 and 1999-00, Don Antonio Lugo HS, Calif.), Shyra Ely (1999-00, Ben Davis HS, Ind.) and Lisa Leslie (1988-89, Morningside HS, Calif.).

    A member of Carmel High’s Big Game Club responsible for school spirit and has donated her time with multiple community-service initiatives through her church.

    “Amy has the ability to create for others and dominate a game in more ways than scoring,” said Lauren Vail, head coach of Fishers High. “She is a very unique player in her ability to probe the paint and create for others but is still more than capable of scoring herself.”

    3/21/2018 INDIANAPOLIS — In conjunction with Donate Life Indiana, Pippa Mann announced at the Indiana State Museum that she will join Dale Coyne Racing in an attempt to qualify the No. 63 Honda for the 102nd Indianapolis 500 on May 28.

We also look forward to having Pippa back in the #63 car this May.”
  • Student-Athlete Tip of the Week

    Have you ever been in a game where your team was the prohibitive underdog and you came out victorious? If you play sports long enough, I'm sure that you will experience both the pleasure of winning in that situation, and the agony of losing when it should never happen.

    This past week the number one seed in the men's NCAA Tournament, the Virginia Cavaliers, lost unexpectedly to 20 point underdog UMBC. Virginia coach Tony Bennett offered a humble response when he said "If you play this game and you step into the arena, this stuff can happen. And maybe those who haven't been in the arena or in competition, maybe they don't understand that."

    Being able to handle winning and losing with the same humility is a great trait to strive for. Coach Bennett made no excuses and congratulated his opponent without hesitation.

  • No. 10 Carmel beats No. 2 South Bend Riley in Class 4A semi-state
    3/19/2018 The Greyhounds played a nearly perfect game when it mattered most. 

    No. 10 Carmel trailed just once in its 63-43 win in the Class 4A Lafayette Jeff semi-state against No. 2 South Bend Riley Saturday to end the Wildcats’ bid at a perfect season. 

    After falling behind 3-0, Carmel (21-7) went on an 11-0 run fueled by its defense and a deft touch from deep. The Greyhounds hit four first-quarter 3’s, and didn’t allow the Wildcats (26-0) to score a second basket until 4:21 left in the quarter. 

    Carmel held South Bend Riley to 34 percent shooting (16-of-46) for the game, including just 3-of-17 from behind the arc.

    The Hamilton Southeastern girls varsity lacrosse team came out on top of a back-and-forth affair with Fishers Saturday, as the Royals came from behind to keep the Tigers winless on the young season.

    Fishers led 5-4 at the half, but Southeastern made a couple defensive changes during the break that helped spur the Royals to a 10-6 victory.

    “We made some adjustments,” Hamilton Southeastern coach Adrianne Wagner said. “Our players improved their passing and approved their attack, and that made a big difference. They did a much better job of going after – and getting – the ground balls, and our passing helped us keep possession. Just being more aggressive … allowed us to take control.”

  • Noblesville lacrosse picks up first home win of season

    The temperature was cold Saturday morning, hovering around the freezing, but that didn’t stop the Noblesville girls lacrosse team from getting hot in the second half at Hare Chevrolet Field.

    The Millers rallied from an 8-6 halftime deficit to defeat Westminster Christian Academy 11-10 and make school history by winning their first home game in their inaugural season as a school sponsored varsity club sport.

    The key was not panicking when they were down by four goals early, Millers coach Jenna Turner said.

    “The girls have a mentality to never give up,” Turner said. “We displayed patience. When we got behind, that is when we started to play better.”

  • 3/16/2018 INDIANAPOLIS – Pacers’ fans and basketball history buffs are invited to join legendary American Basketball Association Pacers player Robert “Neto” Netolicky and sports writer Robin Miler – co-authors of “We Changed the Game” – on Sunday at the historic Irving Theater for the first book signing.

    The book launched for pre-order in December and became available this week for immediate purchase through Amazon and Hilton Publishing. Ten percent of the book proceeds go to fund Dropping Dimes, an Indiana not-for-profit that assists ABA players and their families facing financial or medical difficulties.

    “These proceeds are crucial to so many of my former teammates and other players because after the NBA-ABA merger, the ABA itself ceased to exist as a going concern, and former ABA players who were not part of the merger were generally left without a pension,” said Netolicky, who serves on the advisory board of Dropping Dimes. 
  • 3/16/2018 Former Indiana University coach Tom Crean is heading south.

"We will work diligently and with great energy to make everyone associated with the University of Georgia very proud of our efforts."

    Georgia athletic director Greg McGarity pegged Crean as his man one day after former Ohio State coach Thad Matta withdrew from consideration, the times new gathering partner WTHR reports.
