• Records were made to be broken — and another just happened over the weekend.

    Take a bow Sydney Parrish!

    I remember when Zach Gunn broke the Hamilton Southeastern boys career career scoring record, set by  2012 Indiana Mr. Basketball Gary Harris. Gunn surpassed the current NBA star’s all-time scoring record in 2017. Gunn 1,660 points . . . Harris 1,552 points.

    That was big. 

    So is Parrish’s accomplishment, adding a page in the school’s girls record book.

    The Oregon-bound Hamilton SE senior has totaled 1,404 points so far for her career. That broke the school mark last weekend for HSE girls basketball, held by 2013 graduate and Indiana All-Star and Naismith Award winner Taya Reimer, who had 1,374 points.

  • 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. In a game that came down to a few possessions in the final minutes, the Lady Royals were able to withstand the defensive pressure Ben Davis brought.

    Leading Scorers for the Lady Royals were Senior Sydney Parrish with 33 and Jackie Maulucci with 13. Leading rebounders were Parrish with nine and Bailee Poore with seven. 

    The win for the defending class 4A champs gets their season started off with a record of 1-0. The Lady Royals will be back in action on Saturday as they host the Southeastern Shootout. The team will first play Center Grove at 10 a.m.

  • FISHERS - The Carmel Greyhounds and Hamilton Southeastern Royals met up on Friday night in the opening round of the Class 6A Sectional 4, with the winner advancing to the sectional championship game next week. 

    The Greyhounds who are looking for the chance to go back to the state title game got their post-season started off right as they were able to come away with a 28-14 win over the Royals.

    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 – The Westfield Lady Rocks traveled to take on the Carmel Greyhounds on Monday night. Coming in the matchup between the two schools, both teams had a combined total of 26 wins on the season so fans expected to see a competitive match. 

    That game lived up to the hype as The Greyhounds ultimately came out victorious, but the Lady Rocks made the Greyhounds work for every single point as Carmel walked away with a 29-27, 29-27, and 25-17 sweep over Westfield. 

    Junior Kenzie Daffinee led the team with 16 kills and four service aces, Peighton Isley anchored the defense with 14 digs and Katie Sweet ended the night with three blocks. The Rocks are back in action Wednesday night at home vs Hamilton Southeastern as their record fell to 12-3 on the season. 

    For the Greyhounds, they were led by Macarty McQueen with 11 kills, four aces, and six digs on the night. Anne Lesure contributed nine kills, 19 assists, ten digs. Gabby Smith ended her night tallying seven kills and four blocks while Ella Bostic finished with 18 Assists, an ace, and five digs. The win improves the Greyhounds record to 15-7 on the season. The team will return to action on Tuesday night as they will travel to Lawrence North. 

    Millers fall to tough Yorktown squad

  • Hoosier Basketball Magazine tabs ‘Top 60 Senior Boys’
    Hoosier Basketball Magazine has released its list of Top 60 senior boys’ basketball players for 2018-2019. These boys were selected from approximately 1,500 senior players statewide.

    Among the 60 honorees were eight Hamilton County players, although, only two will participate in the Top 60 Workout: Noblesville’s Zack Johnson and Westfield’s Zack Banks. HSE’s Noah Smith is out with an injury and unable to participate and HSE’s Aaron Etherington is listed as unable to attend. All four players who made this list from Carmel are also on the ‘unable to attend list’—presumably due to the fact that they are set to play in the IHSAA State Championship game today.

  • HSE defeats Westfield in double-overtime sectional game
    The Westfield Shamrocks (12-11) took on the Hamilton Southeastern Royals (15-8) in the first round of sectional play on Tuesday night in Carmel.

Craig Yoho followed with a double off the left field fence and Woolwine scored the first run moments later on a wild pitch. After a walk put runners at first and third, Grant Richardson appeared to be picked off and broke toward second and was hit in the back with the ball. As the ball trickled away, Richardson reached second and Yoho raced home from third to score. Kiel Brenczewski followed with an RBI single to plate Richardson, and the score was 3-0 before an out was recorded.

  • 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.

    The Greyhounds earned their fourth consecutive — and seventh in the last nine years — IHSAA Swimming and Diving State Finals with a state-record team score of 417. The runner-up, Franklin, finished with a score of 203. Carmel’s wins in nine of 11 events is also a record. 

    Senior Drew Kibler was a part of four first-place finishes for the Greyhounds, including the 200 medley relay team with sophomore Wyatt Davis, senior Stefano Batista and senior Andrew Couchon who narrowly missed the national-record time (1:28.00) the quartet set in Friday’s prelims. 
  • Swim State Finals prelims
    The Greyhounds started their quest for a fourth straight IHSAA Boys Swimming and Diving State Championship in style Friday night at the Natatorium at IUPUI. 

    Carmel's Wyatt Davis, Stefano Batista, Drew Kibler and Andrew Couchon began the preliminaries with a new state-record (1:28.00) in the 200 medley relay. The time, which is the No. 2 all-time mark in the nation (1:27.74), was just under the state record that Zionsville set last year. 

    Kibler did set a new national record in the 50 freestyle (19.38) and is seeded first in today’s finals.

    “That seemed to get our energy going back up again — that was a huge play,” said Southeastern head coach Brian Satterfield. “He’s done it his whole career. What he does to make us a better team on both ends of the floor has always been special. He’s been a winner for us, and he made a winning play.”

  • FISHERS - The Hamilton Southeastern Royals weren't able to close out their regular season with a win on Friday night when they hosted the equally as youthful Lawrence North Wildcats.

    The Wildcats outpaced the Royals to win 64-50 and spoil Senior Night.

    The loss was the fifth consecutive for the Royals and dropped their season record to 7-16.
  • INDIANAPOLIS - Unlike the girls' swimming state meet two weekends ago there is no clear-cut favorite to win it all this morning.

    Many of the contenders, Avon, Carmel, Zionsville, Bloomington South, Brownsburg and Hamilton Southeastern all had at least one swimmer or relay team grab first in an event on Friday night. This should pave the way for an interesting day of competition at IUPUI's Natatorium today.
  • Hard to believe the boys' basketballs season is almost over. Actually, let me rephrase that, the regular season is almost over.

    Yes, sectional tournaments are set to begin next week on Tuesday, and the draws for the second season are already complete, which on the surface makes tonight's finales seem, well uneventful. But not so fast.

    These games still hold weight and here's why:
  • County swimmers set to shine
    Two weekends ago the county's girls' swimmers had their shot at a state title, and in case you missed it, the Carmel Greyhounds won their 29th-consectutive state title.

    Now, it's the boys turn to hop into the pool and show the state what they've got as they compete for the 78th Indiana High School Athletic Association swimming state title, beginning on Friday.

    This year's state meet will be well represented by Hamilton County high schools. Five area schools will be competing: Noblesville, Carmel, Hamilton Southeastern, Fishers, and Westfield.
  • Sectional pairings announced
    On Sunday, sectional pairings were released for the 105th Annual IHSAA Boys Basketball State Tournament.

    Among Hamilton County's nine schools, both Class 4A No. 4 Carmel (19-2) and 3A No. 17 Hamilton Heights Huskies (16-7) received first-round byes.

    The Greyhounds host Sectional 8 and face a semifinal path that leads through either No. 3 North Central (15-5) or Fishers (12-9), which recently wrapped up its first Hoosier Crossroads Conference title.

    Noblesville (12-10) will look to avenge an earlier loss to No. 13 Zionsville (17-6) in the Sectional 8 quarterfinals on Wednesday, March 4. Westfield (4-17) and Hamilton Southeastern (7-15) match up with the winner feeding into the Millers' semifinal.
  • HSE's Chastain wins final match, finishes fifth at state finals
    INDIANAPOLIS -- Hamilton Southeastern coach Kyle Poyer paced around in the back hallways, working hard to keep his emotions in check.

    An emotional hug with senior wrestler Jack Chastain at the IHSAA State Wrestling Finals had just marked the end of the road.

    But not before Chastain built an impressive resume, winning three sectionals, three regionals, and one semi-state title in his career. He finished fifth in the state two times - last year in the 126-pound division and this season in the 132-pound weight class.
  • FISHERS - The Hamilton Southeastern Royals boys' swimming team won its 23 consecutive sectional title over the weekend with a total score of 519 points.

    Hamilton County rival Fishers finished just behind the Royals with their total score of 509.

    It was a record-setting day for both the Royals and the Tigers as total of seven swimmers set new records in the pool on Saturday.

  • Five wrestlers advance into medal rounds
    INDIANAPOLIS - On Friday night, five of Hamilton County's best wrestlers went from state qualifiers to future state-place winners.

    Able to survive the meat grinder that is opening night at the IHSAA individual wrestling state finals, Hamilton Southeastern's Austin Holmes at 113 pounds, 132-pound Jack Chastain and 152-pound Corbin Gregg each won their first-round matches.

    Carmel's 11th-ranked Sam Hipple (28-4) pinned Mishawaka's 16th-ranked Tanner Bradley (26-5) in 34 seconds at 195, and Westfield's sixth-ranked Evan Eldred (34-9) won by decision 8-4 against South Bend Riley's Austin Laughlin (46-7) to advance into today's medal rounds.
  • BROWNSBURG - It was a Hoosier Crossroads Conference showdown on Friday night between the Hamilton Southeastern Royals and the Brownsburg Bulldogs.

    In a low-scoring contest, the Bulldogs (18-5, 4-2) defeated the Royals 37-34.

    Both teams' offense were off in the first quarter as they combined for a total of eight points.

    The Bulldogs' offense found life in the second quarter with 15 points scored against the Royals (7-15 2-4) to take an 18-9 lead heading into the lock room.
  • State-bound six ready for spotlight
    FISHERS - The serenity coursing through the Hamilton Southeastern wrestling room was unmistakable.

    In the background, music played at comfortable, yet not quite imperceptible levels. Nothing too heavy or fast. No booming voices or coaches' whistles.

    Just focus in every action as head coach Kyle Poyer and his staff watched over their unprecedented six state qualifiers running sprints and revisiting techniques already singed into their muscle memory.

    "It's about being comfortable in the moment. Being comfortable with their own expectations of how they should compete," Poyer remarked on his wrestler's mindset entering this weekend's IHSAA state finals. "To them, it's just another tough tournament they need to perform well at."
  • State Preview: Hamilton County sending 10 wrestlers to state

    Hamilton County will be represented by 10 wrestlers at this year's state finals with Hamilton Southeastern sending six, Fishers with two, and Westfield and Carmel with one each.
  • The Hamilton Southeastern Royals fell to Pike 63-57 on Tuesday night. After going up 28-27 at half, the game was tied going into the fourth at 48 before Pike was able to put away the Royals.

    Sophomore Zach Gunn stepped up huge for HSE, once again, and scored 22 points off of 10 of 19 shooting, two of which came from beyond the 3-point line.
