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.

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 defense for the Lady Millers buckled down in the third as they held the No. 17 Artesians to just nine points. It wasn’t until the final quarter after the Artesians had built a 47-33 lead that the Miller offense was able to find a spark. They scored 23 points in the final quarter, however the Artesians also found their offense again and scored 21 points of their own.

  • Basketball Season: Pete Smith loved that rush 
Sports Talk with Mark Morrow

    Former Guerin Catholic boys basketball coach Pete Smith, who retired from teaching, and then left coaching two years ago to work full time on his business career, likes to reminisce.

    The two-time Golden Eagles Class 3A state-championship coach (2012 & 2015) says he does miss this time of year when the balls are bouncing in the gymnasiums and basketball is about ready to start.

    “I do get a little sad this time of the year,’’ he said while taking time to talk basketball the other day . . . “When so many of my old coaching buddies are starting up their season and are so excited.

    “I loved that rush.’’

  • FISHERS - The Lady Royals started off the season with a great win against a tough Ben Davis team.

    The Lady Royals continue to find ways to win games. In a game that points were slim, the Lady Royals fought hard on the defensive end to pull out their first victory of the season. The Lady Royals led most of the game; however, Ben Davis took the lead late. A couple tough defensive stands turned into offensive points and the Royals were back on top.

    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.

  • 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.”

  • 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.”
