  • Millers come up just short in Johnson’s return
    NOBLESVILLE – Noblesville got a huge effort from junior Zack Johnson and freshman Evan Wilson in the fourth quarter on Friday night but came up just short against Avon. 

    The short-handed Millers fell, 53-52, to the Orioles (3-18), breaking Avon’s 10-game losing streak. 

    “Tremendous effort tonight,” Noblesville head coach Brian McCauley said. “We’re really proud of the guys who played tonight.”

    Noblesville was missing six players, including all five starters, but fought valiantly in a tough situation. The group of players were suspended from the game for breaking a team rule. 

    The Millers did have one player that’s been missing for weeks in Zack Johnson. The junior wingman had been sidelined with an ankle injury but returned in a big way Friday scoring a game-high 21 points, including 15 in the fourth quarter. 
  • Millers pick up win over Franklin Central

    “As a team, we are doing very well on vault, which is our best event,” Noblesville head coach Jody Ramey said in an email. “We are averaging a team score in the 25 range, which is very good. I am very proud of the girls.”

  • Bears pull away from Millers in second half
    With 5:50 left in the second quarter of Noblesville’s game against Lawrence Central Tuesday night, Millers head coach Brian McCauley called a timeout and told his team they weren’t going to win if they didn’t rebound the basketball. 

    Lawrence Central (13-6) finished the game with 15 more boards than Noblesville (9-11) en route to a 70-42 victory at The Mill. 

    “We just have to simply be in position — We’ve got to block out, make contact and all five guys have to pursue the ball,” McCauley said. “They were jumping and we were standing — that’s a bad combination.”

  • The Noblesville Millers snapped a four-game losing streak with a 68-62 win over the Arsenal Tech Titans Saturday night at The Mill. 

    Junior point guard Jordan Schmidt led the Millers in points with 17 on 4-of-5 shooting. Noblesville thrived on the offensive end as a team, connecting on 52 percent (23-of-44) of its shots. The Millers shot 56 percent on two-point field goals. 

    Noblesville (9-10) jumped out to a 10-3 lead and ended the first quarter doubling Arsenal Tech, 14-7, on the scoreboard. The Titans used an efficient second quarter to lock the score at 29 heading into the half. 
  • Millers place 6th at invite
    The Noblesville gymnastics team competed in the Connersville Invitational and placed sixth out of 10 teams with a team total score of 97.5 Saturday — earning one of the team's highest scores since a rash of injuries at the start of the year. 

    “(Saturday) was a very good day for us,” Noblesville head coach Jody Ramey said in an email. “Since (we) lost four of our top gymnasts … it has been difficult come away with a team score as we first envisioned. We were able to get back two gymnasts with this competition, which is still not our full roster, but better than we had the last competition.” 

    On vault, sophomore Olivia Mangin was able to execute a beautiful twisting full, scoring her an 8.65, which was the Miller’s high-score leading score. Ramey said that vault has been the team’s best event throughout the season, but Saturday’s team score (25.075) was about a half of a point lower than what she’d liked to see. 
  • Carmel girls extend state swimming title streak to 32
    Carmel's girls swimming program extended their state high school championship streak with their 32nd consecutive team title in the IU Natatorium Saturday. Kelly Pash won the 100 and 200 freestyles, and Trude Rothrock won the 200 Individual Medley and 100 Butterfly to lead the Greyhounds, who also won the 200 Medley and 400 Freestyle relays.
  • It seemed two different Noblesville basketball teams played at Brownsburg Friday night. 

    There was the lethargic first-half Millers that head coach Brian McCauley called "boys." Then there were the men who played with energy and fire in the second half. After trailing by as many as 18 points in the first half, Noblesville came roaring back after halftime against No. 19 Brownsburg (16-4) but in the end fell short losing 46-37.

    To the start the game, the Millers (8-10) couldn't have played a much worse first quarter. A stagnant offense produced one made field goal and five turnovers. 

    Meanwhile, 6-foot-5 Brownsburg senior Antrez Baker controlled the interior, converting on four layups as the Bulldogs ran out to a 16-3 lead.

    The second quarter brought more of the same as Brownsburg stretched its lead to 27-10 by halftime.

    "Guys were getting manhandled," McCauley said. "They were men. We were boys.

  • The Noblesville gymnastics team continues to keep its head above water as the group pushes through early-season injury woes. 

    The Lady Millers placed second in a home competition Wednesday night with a final score of 94.950, defeating Lafayette Jefferson (83.675) and finishing behind Harrison (100.4). Tri-Central and Lafayette Central Catholic also participated in the meet, but both schools didn’t have enough gymnasts to qualify for a team score. 

    “Today was a difficult day for us,” Noblesville head coach Jody Ramey said in an email. “We had some missed connections and a couple falls. Since we don't have a full roster on bars, it makes it difficult for us … when one (gymnast) has an off day, it plays into our team score.”

  • Coach's Corner: Jody Ramey

    Coach's Corner is a weekly 'Q' and 'A' featuring the coaches of Hamilton County high schools. This week's volunteer is Noblesville gymnastics head coach Jody Ramey. 

    Q: What’s one aspect of gymnastics that people outside the sport might not think is difficult, but is actually something gymnasts work on a lot?

    A: Mental toughness is the most underestimated component of gymnastics. Spectators or people outside the sport might think it looks easy, but in all reality it is truly crazy difficult. The gymnasts have their days where they mess up and with that may come terrible falls or even injuries. Not only are they expected to try it again, but they are asked to overcome their fears daily. 

    Q: I’ve asked this question a couple times to other coaches, but I’m interested to hear what a gymnasts will say — If you could attend any past sporting event, which one would it be?

    A: It would have to be the 1984 Olympics.

  • Millers fall below .500 with loss to Marauders

    A game-high 16 points from point guard Jordan Schmidt wasn’t enough to help the Noblesville Millers earn a win at Mount Vernon Saturday. 

    The loss is Noblesville’s third straight and drops the Millers to a game under .500 at 8-9. 

    Senior Damari Gatewood and junior Keith Rupert led the Marauders to a 25-19 advantage at the half. Gatewood finished with a team-high 15 points on 4-of-13 shooting. Rupert scored 10 on 2-of-5 from the field. The duo connected on nine of their 10 free throw attempts, and the Marauders as a team shot 10-of-11 (90 percent).

  • Greyhounds rally past Millers in sectional matchup

    Fans and coaches in the Fishers High School High School Gymnasium went silent when Carmel Senior Amy Dilk injured her knee Friday in the semifinal round of the Class 4A Sectional 8.

    Dilk fell awkwardly after twisting her knee with a little more than three minutes to play in the third quarter and Noblesville leading 34-32. Dilk laid in pain as a trainer and Carmel head coach Tod Windlan tended to the University of Michigan-bound star. The the question on everyone’s minds: Would she return?

  • Record-breaking Kiser leads Millers into state tournament

    As the Indiana state basketball tournament kicks into gear, teams across the state will need their best player to come up big. For the Noblesville Millers, this player is undoubtedly 6’3 senior forward Emily Kiser.

    Kiser certainly came through for her team in the Millers’ first postseason game. She nearly finished with a triple double (30 points, 11 rebounds and eight assists) as Noblesville cruised past Anderson, 72-44, in the opening round of sectionals.

    For a first time observer or for someone who just caught a glimpse at the box score, this looked like an incredible performance, a once-in-a-career type of game.
  • The Noblesville Millers gymnastics team placed second in a competition against New Palestine, Brebuef and Anderson Prep high schools Tuesday night. New Palestine finished with a team score of 96.675, just above Noblesville’s 95.0. 

    In the vault event, sophomore Olivia Mangin led the Millers with a score of 8.5, which was good enough for third place. 

    “Olivia was out of last competition (but she) was able to jump right back in,” Noblesville head coach Jody Ramey said in an email. “As always, Olivia provides a consistent vault that we can count on.” 
  • Kiser, Knight lead Millers past Anderson

    On a tournament-time Tuesday in late January, when it really counts, the Noblesville Millers accomplished something they struggled to do in mid-December. They put the Anderson Indians away.

    In a rematch of a regular season nail-biter, Noblesville defeated Anderson by a wide margin, 72-44, pulling away in the second half in the opening round of sectional play at Fishers High School.

    In the teams’ first matchup, the Millers escaped with only a one-point victory at home in overtime, allowing the Indians to stay in it until the very end. On Tuesday, Noblesville didn’t leave it to chance, outscoring Anderson 39-18 in the second half.

    “The first time we played them, we just let them hang around and hang around,” Noblesville head coach Donna Buckley said.

    The Noblesville Lady Millers gymnastics team placed fourth with a score of 89.615 in the Western Invitational Saturday.

    Northwestern won the competition with a final team score of 103.175. 

    “We have had a very difficult week, as our team has been plagued with injuries, which took out some of our top gymnasts,” said Noblesville head coach Jody Ramey in an email. “We have had to come together to pull some of the (junior varsity) gymnasts to fill these spots … I was very proud of the girls and their performance.” 

    In addition to injured seniors Remy Kirk and Zoe Hartman, the Millers were also without sophomore Olivia Mangin, who was away from the team due to a schedule conflict.
  • A balanced offensive output led by senior Emily Kiser helped the Noblesville Lady Millers win a 66-53 road game at Pendleton Heights Thursday. 

    Kiser logged a double-double with 27 points and 15 rebounds, as the Millers used a third-quarter run to pull away after a tightly contested first half. 

    Noblesville jumped out to a 15-12 lead after the first quarter and extended its lead to 30-26 at halftime. The Millers turned up the pace on the offensive end in the third, outscoring the Lady Arabians 24-14 in the quarter.

    Emily Kiser led the charge for Noblesville in a 57-49 overtime win against then No.18 Heritage Christian. 

    Kiser finished with a game-high 25 points and 17 rebounds. But, she also had a lot of help along the way. 

    After jumping out to a 16-8 lead at the end of the first quarter, the Millers watched as the Eagles outscored them by 12 in the quarter to reclaim the lead at 26-22 heading into the locker room. Trailing by four late in the third, the Millers used an 11-5 run to take their first lead of the second half at 40-38.
