Virgil Sweet Awards for 2020
Three sports journalists with significant ties to Indiana high school basketball will be recognized with Virgil Sweet Awards for 2020.
Jim Peters of the Michigan City News-Dispatch and LaPorte County Herald-Argus, Mike Carmin of the Lafayette Journal & Courier and Gordon Engelhardt of the Evansville Courier & Press are the recipients of this year's awards.
One is honored from each IHSAA district -- Peters in District 1, Carmin in District 2 and Engelhardt in District 3.
Virgil Sweet Awards are presented to those who have provided meritorious service in the promotion of basketball across Indiana. The award is named in honor of Sweet, a former Valparaiso High School basketball coach and executive director of the IBCA from 1977 through 1984.
These awards typically are presented during the IBCA's annual clinic during April, but this year's clinic has been postponed from the original April 24-25 dates.
The coaches will receive the awards at a date to be determined. For more information about the IBCA, go to
