  • Coming into Thursday night’s contest, both Westfield and Fishers had played in three overtime games already this season. 

    So, naturally, 32 minutes wasn’t enough time to settle this matchup between the Hoosier Crossroads Conference foes. 

    The Tigers ultimately won by a final score of 63-56, but the Shamrocks had a chance to win at the end of regulation. 

    “I was proud of our guys tonight,” Fishers head coach Matt Moore said. “But credit to Westfield, man. Those guys played — they played well, and they hit shots.”
  • Fishers takes out Westfield in 1st round
    It wasn’t pretty, but the Lady Tigers advanced. 

    In a back-and-forth first-round matchup in Class 4A Sectional 8, Fishers generated just enough offense for a 41-36 win over the Westfield Lady Shamrocks Tuesday night. 

    “Early in the year, I think we would have folded,” said Fishers head coach Lauren Vail. “We play a tough schedule, and I think that pays off in situations like (Tuesday), where you’ve been in that grind.” 
  • IHSAA yearbooks, handbooks now available on IHSAA.org

    The IHSAA Yearbooks and Handbooks, annual publications containing the state tournament results in each sport dating back to the earliest years of the Association, are now available to the public on IHSAA.org.

  • A popular winter fun run returns to Westfield on Saturday, when participants race their way through the fourth annual Melt the Trail 5K/10K at Grand Park.

    “We had a great turnout last year and expect the 2018 Melt the Trail to be an even bigger event than ever before,” Community Events Manager Alexa Lingg said.

    This year’s event will feature the return of two popular Melt the Trail elements. 
  • Shamrocks start strong, hold on for conference win
    Westfield held on to secure its first Hoosier Crossroads Conference victory of the season with its win over Avon Friday night.

    An eventual 56-52 victory looked like it was going to be a lot more after the Shamrocks started the game on a 10-0 run, which extended into a 20-6 lead by the end of the first quarter. Avon didn't go down quietly, however.

    Following their slow start, the Orioles outscored the Shamrocks in each of the final three quarters, chipping what was once a 14-point lead down to three in the final seconds. 

    "We certainly had to hang on for dear life, I thought we played really well for a little more than three quarters, and then I thought we got a little careless with the basketball," Westfield head coach Shane Sumpter said.
  • Westfield rocks Tech, ends skid
    Westfield snapped a two-game skid with an impressive defensive effort on the road at Indianapolis Arsenal Tech Thursday to end the regular season. 

    The Lady Shamrocks held the Lady Titans to just two points in the first quarter in route to a 56-24 win. 

    Senior Ryann Bunting led the Shamrocks in scoring with a game-high 14 points. Bunting shot 4-of-8 from the field, with all of her makes coming from behind the 3-point line. She also hit both of her free-throw attempts. The Shamrock senior received plenty of support from her teammates, as guard Jade Shipley and forward Ashtin DeCraene both finished in double-digits with 10 and 13, respectively. 
  • Shamrocks drop 3rd straight
    A balanced offensive attack wasn’t enough to get Westfield back in the win column. Three Shamrocks scored in double-digits, but it was the Tri-West Hendricks Bruins who came away as 69-59 winners. 
  • “We’ve got one game left ...we’ll see what we’re made of.”
  • Bulldogs nip 'Rocks
    Zach Banks dropped 25 points for Westfield, but it wasn’t enough to get the Shamrocks back in the win column. 
  • Shamrocks lose another tight game

  • Shamrocks escape with win over Bronchos
    The Westfield Shamrocks traveled to Lafayette Jefferson and came away with a victory 42-40.
  • Southeastern wins at Westfield

    Hamilton Southeastern didn’t let an early Westfield run faze them on its way to a 43-34 road win Saturday. The Lady Royals fell behind by five to start the game, but answered the Shamrocks’ run with 12 unanswered points.

  • Most area high schools have canceled tonight’s athletic events due to weather. And finding a makeup date can be difficult, says athletic directors.

  • Shamrock makes college commitment

    Westfield senior Parker Kalis has committed to playing tennis at Indiana Wesleyan. 

  • Westfield rebounds in win over Greenwood

    For the second straight game, the Westfield Lady Shamrocks found themselves facing a halftime deficit on their home court. But, unlike Saturday’s loss, Westfield found a way to fight back for a 59-50 win over Greenwood on Senior Night. “After we played Hamilton Heights, we had a lot of hard conversations with our kids, and I’d say they responded well,”said Westfield head coach Ginny Smith.

  • Carmel dominates Westfield

    Carmel used a dominant first half to secure a 73-31 home win over Westfield on Saturday night. The Greyhounds jumped out to a 17-8 lead after the first quarter and extended their advantage to 39-11 by halftime.

  • Westfield runs past Frankton

    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.
