    Greyhound’s season comes to end with 2-1 loss against Eagles

    INDIANAPOLIS – The No. 14 ranked Greyhounds came into Wednesday night’s matchup knowing they’d face a tough opponent in the No. 1 ranked Zionsville Eagles. 

    Throughout most of the first half the two teams were even as they entered halftime tied a 1-1. The second half proved to be the difference maker as the Eagles were able to add another goal while holding the Greyhound offense scoreless to as Carmel fell by a final score of 2-1. 

  • Here are some things we know and don’t know about the 2019 Indiana high school football season after the first four weeks:

    Will the current Noblesville football team post a win this season?

    The crystal ball is still a bit foggy, says my friend the Football Wizard who has watched a lot of Noblesville football over the years.

    Right now, all that seems certain is that you don’t win if you can’t score points.

    And the Millers haven’t scored many points. Not so far, anyway. They’ve scored 14 points twice; 7 in another; and have been shut out in yet another.

    They are averaging 8.8 points per game . . . and their defensive average is 35.3 points. In addition, Noblesville has rushed for only 292 yards, passed for 124 and produced 130 reception yards. 

    In all fairness to coach Justin Roden and his staff, Noblesville lost a nucleus of good players from the 4-6 team in 2018, and the 2019 team is young and inexperienced in several spots.

    And keep in mind that the Millers started the season 0-4 against a murderous schedule, featuring Cathedral, Carmel, Fishers and Westfield, all ranked teams.

    Regardless, due to Hamilton Heights’ rousing, 36-0 victory over Northwestern last week, Noblesville now finds itself as the lone winless football team in Hamilton County. 

    Can Noblesville turn the tables on Zionsville (2-2) this week? That’s Homecoming for the Millers. Certainly all of the hoopla surrounding that could, and likely should, help the cause.

    Can the Millers defeat Franklin Central or Hamilton SE in road games? Possibly, but keep in mind that those teams have shown much improvement so far this season, and they’re certainly much better, more competitive than they were in 2018. Senior QB Andrew Hobson passed for 259 yards against Fishers.

    What about Brownsburg on the Millers turf on Oct. 11 and then the regular-season finale on Oct. 18 against Avon?

    Those last two are likely much taller orders.

    Noblesville must win its final five games to go 5-4 and secure a rare regular-season winning record. A lot of good things must happen for that to happen. And posting the school’s first winning season since 2001 obviously remains a long shot.

    So back to the crystal ball: All the Football Wizard can see is a shadow of someone scratching his head in all of that fog.

  • The #13 Royals were able to pick up a win on Monday as they hosted Guerin Catholic.

    The Royals won by a final of 4-1. 

    At #1 singles, Andrew Orme had was victorious 6-0, 6-1. 

    “Andrew did a nice job of varying his shots when his opponent came to the net,” Head Coach Kirk Webber said. “He had some great passes and many good lobs.”

     At #2 singles, freshman Paul Schneider won 6-0, 6-2. 

    “Paul did a very good job of constructing points tonight,” Webber said. “He had multiple volley, overhead, and drop shot winners. He also had seven forehand winners.”

     At #3 singles, freshman Rohan Golla was victorious, winning 6-2, 6-1. 

    “Rohan also did a nice job of building the point, being patient, using angles, and then attacking when the opportunity came,” Webber said of Golla. “He had 22 winners against a very consistent and fast player, which is quite impressive. He also finished points in a variety of ways: short balls, volleys, overheads, and drop shots. Our singles guys are continuing to get better every match.”

    At #1 doubles, Andrew Spirrison and Daniel Verde lost two very close sets. 

    “It was good tennis played at a high level,” Webber said of the duo’s close defeat. “Guerin had two of their stronger players playing doubles (Metzger & Harrington), so it was a good challenge for our team. After a back-and-forth first set, we had a set point up 6-5, but Metzger made a great play on a drop volley by Andrew to keep Guerin alive. Unfortunately, we ended up dropping the set 5-7 in a tiebreaker. Our guys showed some toughness as they kept fighting in the second set. After getting down 1-3, they reeled off 3 straight games to go up 4-3. Unfortunately, Guerin finished strong by getting a late break to take the set 7-5. Andrew & Daniel played very well. Just a few errors was probably the difference in that match.” 

  • CARMEL – With the girls’ soccer season less than a month away, many programs are beginning to gear up for the upcoming season. Four programs here in Hamilton County just wrapped up playing in the DeWayne Akin Summer Showcase which took place on the practice fields at Carmel High School.

  • Guerin Catholic has a new leader for its boys basketball team. 

    The school's athletic department announced Wednesday the hiring of Bobby Allen as varsity boys basketball head coach. Allen also joins the staff at Guerin as an english teacher.

    “I am truly blessed and excited for the opportunity to be the head boys basketball coach at Guerin Catholic High School,” said Allen. “Coaching and teaching have been my true passions for fifteen years. Becoming a head basketball coach at a school where I can create lifelong relationships and develop student athletes based on Catholic values is my professional goal, and I look forward to having a positive impact on the players, school, and entire community.”


  • An era ended Tuesday night. 

    Now, it’s time to for former Guerin Catholic boys’ basketball head coach Pete Smith to enter life without the coaching title and reflect on the great years he had with the Golden Eagles. Years that might not have been possible if Coach hadn’t returned to the hardwood and helped jumpstart Guerin’s program. 

    “(My wife,) Vicky goes, ‘If you want to coach again, go down and tell Guerin Catholic that you’ll start their basketball program,’” Smith said. “It was on my wife’s urging that I (started the program), because I was starting to miss not coaching.”

    Smith got back into coaching in 2004 at Guerin when he started their boys’ basketball program. From the beginning, Guerin wanted their students to play sports and play them the right way – winning was irrelevant, Smith said. 
  • Longtime coach ends illustrious career
    Guerin Catholic high school’s boys’ basketball program will be without its supreme leader next season.

    Head coach Pete Smith announced Tuesday he is retiring. Smith started the boys’ basketball team at Guerin in 2004 and developed the Golden Eagles into a competitive program.

    “I’ve learned that coaching, for me, was part of those 33 years and a reason also that I taught,” Smith said. “Coaching was the last part of my day as a teacher all those years, and I just haven’t had the same passion for coaching since I left the classroom. After the ’16-’17 season, I struggled with whether I wanted to coach anymore or not, but I decided to coach this past season and I was glad I did with the great bunch of seniors we had. Injuries threw a wrench into what we thought could be a nice run tournament-time, but that’s basketball.”

    Andriole sent Moreno’s offering over the right field wall – a two-run blast – and sent Guerin home 11-1 winners. 

    “I just tried to put a good swing on it and do what the team needed me to do,” Andriole said. 

    The Comets scored early off of Guerin starter Max Engelking with a Luke Monize RBI single that brought Logan Smith home for a 1-0 lead in the first inning. That was about as good as it got for Eastern the rest of the night. 

    Engelking settled in, going five innings, allowing one run on five hits while striking out six and walking zero.

    “We gave ourselves opportunities in the second half, because we battled our rear ends off,” said Guerin head coach Pete Smith. “With the pace of the game, and having to comeback, our decision making at crucial times wasn’t very good.” v

  • IHSAA basketball sectional preview

    The 108th annual IHSAA Boys Basketball State Tournament tips off Tuesday at 64 sectional locations around Indiana. 

    Four hundred three teams will participate in this year’s tournament, with sectional championships scheduled for Saturday. The regional round is slated for March 10
    and semi-states for March 17. The four state championship games will be played at Bankers Life Fieldhouse in Indianapolis on March 24 — but a lot needs to be settled on the court before then. 

    About the Draw


    To conduct the random drawing for the tournament, the IHSAA places ping-pong balls that represent each school in a sectional into a lottery-style air mix machine, an IHSAA press release explains. A motorized fan in the bottom of the machine blows the balls around the inside of the transparent container and air then forces each ball up through a tube in random order. The first ball retrieved from the machine is the visiting team — the second ball is the home team.

  • Former Colts player motivates local youth
    Young athletes spent a rainy Saturday afternoon at Guerin Catholic High School learning sportsmanship from leaders committed to seeing our youth succeed, which included an inspirational message from former Indianapolis Colts offensive lineman Joe Reitz.

    The program is designed for first through fifth graders and was started 10 years ago at St. Louis DeMonfort Catholic School in Fishers. Program Coordinator Mike Mewborn asked Reitz, who was playing for the Baltimore Ravens at the time, if he wanted to host a youth-based sports camp, which Reitz said he was more than happy to do. 

    Reitz said one of the reasons the camp is successful is because it’s a combination of showing kids good fitness routines, as well as emphasizing the importance of having faith in their lives. 

    “The mission is to have a lot of fun and to honor God in the way that we listen, compete and interact with each other,” Reitz said. “There are great life lessons about faith, family and football.”

  • Guerin Catholic spoiled another Madison County opponent's Senior Night Tuesday night, as Jack Hansen scored a go-ahead basket with 6.7 seconds remaining to cap an 18-point night in leading the Golden Eagles over Anderson's 59-57. It was the regular season finale for both basketball squads.

    The Golden Eagles led by as many as 10 points in the second quarter and by nine at the end of the third quarter before the Indians mounted a furious rally. The Golden Eagles have never lost to Anderson since the historic 8,900-seat WigWam closed in 2011 in seven tries.

    Guerin started the fourth quarter with a chance to go up 11 after a defensive stop, but they missed a contested layup, and the momentum shifted drastically.
