  • Sweet ride starts senior's streak

    Noblesville senior Bryce Randolph began his season in a 2-for-22 slump at the plate. The outfielder wasn’t too thrilled with his contributions on the diamond.

    His first thought was to set up a meeting with his personal hitting coach, Ryan Basham, in the second week of April to work out some of the kinks in his swing.

    But then, the Noblesville High School Prom came around, and he wanted a special ride for the big dance. So he turned to one man he knew wouldn’t let him down – his maternal grandfather, “Papaw” Bill Peevler. Randolph asked his papaw if he could borrow his Mercedes, a hardtop convertible. The answer was, “Yes.”

    The prom was on April 20 — a Friday. The next day, Randolph went 1-for-1. The game after that, he batted 2-for-3. He then proceeded to get four more hits in his next seven at bats. It occurred to Randolph, he said, that he was simply going to have find a way to keep the Mercedes, and let his papaw drive his Mustang.

    “I’m like, I can’t give him is car back yet,” Randolph said. “I got that car, and I started hitting. And, I’m superstitions, so I don’t want anything to change. I kept telling him, ‘Papaw, I can’t give you your car back yet.’"

     
  • The IHSBCA No. 6 Fishers Tigers baseball team (23-7, 15-3) won the 2018 Hoosier Crossroads Conference (HCC) by completing the sweep of No. 7 Zionsville with a 7-5 victory Saturday afternoon. 

    The Tigers won the HCC for the seconf time in as many seasons becoming the first team to win back-to-back HCC Championships since Zionsville did so in 2011-12.

    The Tigers jumped out to an early 4-1 lead in the first inning. JJ Woolwine was hit by a pitch to leadoff and advanced to second on a wild pitch. Craig Yoho reached on an error, which allowed Woolwine to advance to third. Yoho proceeded to steal second base, and the Eagles’ catcher’s throw ended up in centerfield allowing Woolwine to score the first run for the Tigers. 

     
  • Millers take Hamilton County Tournament championship
    More than a decade had passed since the last time Noblesville’s boys golf team tasted victory at the Hamilton County Meet — until Thursday. 

    Behind several clutch performances on the back nine, the IHSGCA No. 5 Millers pulled out a tightly-contested tournament at Bear Slide Golf Club in Cicero, finishing 3 strokes ahead of No. 6 Westfield, five ahead of No. 2 Carmel and seven ahead of No. 17 Guerin Catholic. 

    No. 18 Fishers, No. 20 Hamilton Southeastern, Hamilton Heights and University rounded out the field, respectively. 

    The finish on the par-70 course was so close that the teams had to wait until the final scores were posted to find out who had come away with a county championship. 

    “It’s really good to break through against such a quality field,” said Noblesville coach Gary Sewell. “We’ve come close, finishing second on a few occasions. It just seemed like it was always out of our reach — until this time.” 
  • The Hamilton Heights varsity baseball team rolled to a 14-1 win at home against Sheridan Friday. 

    Cole Meyer pitched 2.1 strong innings and Luke Thesier and Drew Fryman did the job from there. 

    The louder story, however, was the Huskies’ bats. 

    Hamilton Heights exploded for 10 hits and 14 runs in just four innings. Gabe Reel led the onslaught with a two-run double off of the wall in the first and a grand slam in the second. He added an RBI single in the fourth.

    “What a great night for our guys,” said Hamilton Heights head coach JR Moffatt. “We have been knocking at the door trying to finally break out and it’s beginning to happen. We have several guys with a lot of pop and it’s fun to watch them swing when the get going … I like where we are right now. We can and will get better in the next few days but we are doing most things as well as we’ve done them all year.” 
  • Noblesville beats Avon, wins 8th straight

    The Noblesville Millers continued their winning ways Thursday with a 7-3 victory over Hoosier Crossroads Conference rival Avon at Dunker Field.
    Noblesville won its eighth straight game on the strength of its defense over the Orioles, as the Millers turned four double plays, never allowing Avon to get into a rhythm.

    “Our defense was really sharp tonight with some big double plays tonight,” Noblesville coach Justin Keever said. “None was bigger than a 1-6-3 to help stymie a potential big-scoring inning in the fifth. We got some big ground balls, played them nicely and were able to get double plays to squash any momentum.”

    Relief pitcher Kade Gorman came on to register the final five outs for the Millers. Two came in the sixth inning, with runners on first and second and one out. Gorman got Braedon Payne to ground into a 6-4-3 double play.

  • The Noblesville Millers Grabs Lead in Seventh Inning to Defeat North Central??The Noblesville softball team stole the lead late and defeated North Central 4-2 on Thursday.

  • The outcome of the Noblesville-Hamilton Southeastern match in the opening round of the Noblesville Girls’ Tennis sectional had long been decided Wednesday at the Noblesville High School tennis courts.

    The Royals had taken the first four matches – all straight sets – and had punched a ticket to today’s championship round.

    But the Noblesville No. 2 doubles team of Alex Greer and Kaylee David was determined to not allow the Royals a 5-0 shutout, as they rallied past Nicole Hate and Jillian Pence 4-6, 6-4, 13-11.

    After dropping the first set, Greer and David won the second, forcing a superset in the third and deciding set. The first team to 10 wins the set, but it must win by at least two points.

    Greer and David trailed 7-2 and 9-3 before rallying for the 13-11 deciding set and making the official score 4-1 in favor of the Royals.

    “All the credit goes to those two,” Noblesville coach Tim Samons said. “They are tough kids that really came on strong at the end of the season, going 4-1 in their last five matches.
