  • Sunday was one of those days that remind me why I love this business. It was the 20th annual Indiana Sportswriters and Sportscasters Association Hall of Fame induction ceremony. Our Noblesville Times Executive Sports Editor Mark Morrow was being inducted and was kind enough to allow me to tag along and watch.

    What a day.

    At just a candle or two away from 60, I was still among the youngsters in the room. That was OK with me. I felt like a kid in a candy store. The room was full of who’s who in Indiana sports media. Starting with our own Mark, the guys I grew up reading, listening to and admiring were everywhere. Dick Mittman was one of Mark’s former co-workers from Indianapolis News and Star days. Another former Star guy, Bob Kravitz, was there. Tom Kubat, one of the best writers from the old Lafayette Journal & Courier spoke. So did Bob Jenkins, the voice of the Indianapolis 500, basketball legend Bobby “Slick” Leonard, IU broadcaster Don Fischer, WFNI program director Greg Rakestraw, legendary Bloomington sports editor Bob Hammel, ESPN’s Jason Whitlock and more.

    They spoke. I listened. It was great.

  • Guerin Catholic coach Pete Smith has been building the schedule for the Golden Eagles the past few years.

    Mission Complete.

    The schedule this season has been a difficult one. But certainly one that has helped the Golden Eagles to continue to get better.

    They’ve played 11 ranked Class 4A schools.

    They lost to Lawrence North twice in close games, one of which was in overtime; Crown Point, Tech, and Pendleton Heights (also in OT).

    Other 4A schools they defeated were Lafayette Jeff, Fort Wayne South, Indpls. Northwest, New Castle, Terre Haute South, and Anderson.

    The Golden Eagles also lost to a strong Class 2A ranked team in Indpls. Scecina Memorial, too.

    Three of Guerin’s games were overtimes this season. Three of their losses were by a total of 10 points and four by 17 points.

    So, yeah, a difficult schedule by a pretty competitive team.

     
  • The business of coaching

    When it comes to business, Ed Collins is all business.

    When it comes to softball, he’s also all business.

    So it should come as no surprise that the second-year Guerin Catholic coach expects nothing less from his 16-player roster.
