  • Time for some notes along the football trail:

    And then there were two!

    Already on the sidelines and probably already thinking about 2020 are Hamilton County schools Fishers (7-3), Guerin Catholic (6-5), Hamilton Heights (2-8), Hamilton Southeastern (5-5), Noblesville (1-9) and Sheridan (6-4).

    Westfield visits Carmel this evening to determine the Class 6A Sectional 4 championship.

  • WESTFIELD - The Fishers Tigers traveled to Westfield for the opening round of the IHSAA Sectional 4. 

    The last time these two teams met back on Oct. 11 which saw the Tigers come away with a 19-14 win. 

    This time around the Rocks got their revenge as they dominated the Tigers and ran away with a 42--14 victory.

    You can almost taste it. No, it’s not pumpkin spice, everything nice . . .  it’s tournament football!

    The IHSAA playoffs get under way at several sites with sectionals on Friday night.

    So are you ready for high school football when it really counts?

    The one-and-done format will be a heart-breaker for many schools. But it is what it is: Lose and you can start thinking about 2020; win and those advancing still have another shot at a title.

  • FRANKLIN - The Lady Royals finished HCC play with a perfect 7-0 record defeating Franklin Central 25-16, 25-13, 25-13 on Thursday night. 

    The Royals were led by Abby Weber with five aces 15 digs and five kills. Delaney Garner added 12 kills and Grace Hunter had eight kills. Carly Mills led the team defensively with 17 digs and Kyla Berg added 11 digs. 

  • Carmel – Three teams from Hamilton County were represented at the Girls State Golf meet this past Friday and Saturday as Noblesville, Westfield, and Carmel all were vying for the chance at becoming state champions. 

    When it was all said and done Homestead took home the state title shooting a two-day score of 605 to be crowned the state champions. 
    The Lady Millers placed seventh at the state meet shooting a 682, just missing placing sixth by two strokes. 

  • It was a back and forth affair with the Arabians of Pendleton Heights on Monday night as the Millers opened up sectional play. Luckily for the Millers, the scoring chances tilted in their favor. The Arabians played a very condensed, defensive formation with one lone striker high up the pitch. This made it difficult to break their defense, but in the end the Millers were able to find the back of the net five times to secure the victory in the first round of IHSAA Sectional Playoffs.
  • 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.

  • 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.

    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.

  • Westfield falls to tenth-ranked Brownsburg
    The Shamrocks varsity basketball team (6-5) took on Brownsburg (11-4) on Friday night in Westfield, and the Shamrocks were defeated by the tenth-ranked Bulldogs 65-49.
    Senior Zach Banks led the Shamrocks scoring with 21 points—making 8 of 10 from inside the arc—and senior Caleb Welch added 12 points of his own. Standout freshman Braden Smith had 6 points and 5 assists.
    Westfield couldn’t seem to find a bucket from behind the three-point line. They finished the game shooting 3 of 18—just below 17 percent—from deep.
  • The IHSBCA No. 6 Fishers Tigers (19-7 / 12-3) clinched the series over Westfield Saturday with a 6-0 win in Game 3. 

    Starting pitcher Grant Richardson (4-0) was dominant on the mound. Richardson only faced four batters above the minimum in the complete game shutout, allowing two hits while striking out 12 and walking none. After a leadoff infield single, Richardson retired 13 batters in a row. 

    The Tigers also delivered one of their most selfless days at the plate. JJ Woolwine ledoff the game stretching a routine single into a double. After an out, Richardson reached on his own double when a tough popup fell between three Shamrock defenders. Woolwine could only advance to third on the play as he waited to see if the ball would be caught. Kiel Brenczewski plated Woolwine on a RBI groundout. 

  • Shamrocks edge Royals in pitchers' duel

    The Westfield varsity baseball team picked up a 3-1 home win over Hamilton Southeastern Friday night.

    Zach Zaborowski pitched six strong innings, allowing an unearned run to go with eight strikeouts and no walks.

    “Zab was really good tonight,” said Westfield head coach Ryan Bunnell. “He pounded the zone, had command of his pitches and made some big pitches when he needed to.  He has progressively gotten better with each start, which has been great to see.”

    Westfield only managed three hits – one more than Southeastern – but were able to make a pair of first-inning runs stand. Zach Collins picked up the only RBI for the Shamrocks, as the Royals committed two errors to help Westfield extend its lead.
