  • Golden Eagles soar through semistate

    Golden Eagles soar through semistate

     

  • The business of coaching

    When it comes to business, Ed Collins is all business.

    When it comes to softball, he’s also all business.

    So it should come as no surprise that the second-year Guerin Catholic coach expects nothing less from his 16-player roster.

     

     

  • Guerin’s Munson is certainly a ‘Take Charge’ player

    Looking back on Guerin Catholic’s second straight regional championship and third in four years at Greencastle, coach Pete Smith could not say enough about the play of junior Christian Munson.

     

    And it wasn’t just the fact that Munson led the Golden Eagles in scoring in both games.

     

    Nope, it was THE CHARGE he took. It had a major bearing in the 62-56 outcome against Tri-West in Saturday night’s Greencastle Regional championship game.

     

    Yeah, THE CHARGE was that big.

    Top 20 County qualifying performances.

     
  • Guerin headed to state

    Guerin headed to state

    Guerin Catholic is headed back to the State Basketball Finals for the first time since 2012, when the Golden Eagles celebrated the school’s first state basketball championship.

    No. 11 Guerin (21-8), which shot 70 percent from the floor on its way to pounding Vincennes Lincoln 64-42 in the Southport Semistate on Saturday, will meet No. 18 Griffith (19-3) in the Class 3A State Finals on March 28 at 6 p.m. at Bankers Life Fieldhouse.

  • Mark Morrow: One local team left

    Mark Morrow: One local team left

    And then there was one.

     

    Pete Smith and his Guerin Catholic Golden Eagles are excited to be that ONE and to be honored to carry the Hamilton County banner in the Indiana high school basketball tourney while heading into Saturday’s Southport Semistate.

     

    But the veteran coach said he was pulling for the other two county schools — Carmel and Hamilton Heights — to also get through last week’s regionals.

     
  • SECTIONAL PREVIEW: Numbers don't define Millers
    Noblesville head coach Brian McCauley isn't one to shy away from outside perspectives. On the contrary, he welcomes opinions, but that doesn't necessarily mean he'll agree with them.

    So when casual observers suggest the Millers' 5-9 finish after opening the year a scorching 8-1 was an inevitable correction, his initial response is normally honest and direct.

    Numbers don't define a team. Nor does its record before March.

     
  • SECTIONAL PREVIEW: Blackhawks going step by step
    SHERIDAN - When Chris Schrank took over the reins at Sheridan, the first-year head coach outlined several goals to his players - both for the present and the future.

    One was numeric: win more games than the previous season's three.

    Check.

    Another more crucial aim was psychological: believe in your team, teammates and in your own abilities.

    Check, check and check.

    When the Class 2A Sheridan Blackhawks (6-16) open Sectional 39 at Tipton on Wednesday night against Elwood (4-19), the objective will be two-fold once the ball goes up at 7:30 p.m. 
  • CARMEL - The Class 4A fourth-ranked Carmel Greyhounds ended the regular season on a high note by squeezing out a win over the Brebeuf Jesuit Braves 39-37.

    The win gives the Greyhounds their seventh in row and 20th of the season. It also makes it four-straight seasons that they have won at least 20 games.

    However, this was not an easy win for the Greyhounds. This was the closet margin of victory for the Hounds over the Braves since the 2008-09 season. The Hounds beat the Braves by a score of 38-37 that year. 
  • INDIANAPOLIS - The University Trailblazers won their third straight to finish the regular season on a positive note, defeating Irvington Prep Academy 74-49.

    Reaching 70-plus points for an eighth time this year, the Class A Trailblazers haven't lost since Feb. 17 against 2A Heritage Christian.

    Before winning out, University dropped three in row after winning six consecutive. Their season-high for points scored in a single game this year is 99, which they tallied on Jan. 31 against Anderson Prep Academy. 
  • Fishers' late rally falls short
    FISHERS - Down by as many 20 points, the Fishers Tigers weren't ready to surrender without a fight on Wednesday night.

    Charging back in the second half, the Class 4A Tigers (12-11) cut their deficit to one point late in the fourth quarter in their regular-season finale against Decatur Central (11-10). But despite a 16-point surge by Keegan Kollmeyer, they couldn't quite get over the hump, losing 71-66 on Senior Night. 
  • Guerin Catholic coach Pete Smith has been building the schedule for the Golden Eagles the past few years.

    Mission Complete.

    The schedule this season has been a difficult one. But certainly one that has helped the Golden Eagles to continue to get better.

    They’ve played 11 ranked Class 4A schools.

    They lost to Lawrence North twice in close games, one of which was in overtime; Crown Point, Tech, and Pendleton Heights (also in OT).

    Other 4A schools they defeated were Lafayette Jeff, Fort Wayne South, Indpls. Northwest, New Castle, Terre Haute South, and Anderson.

    The Golden Eagles also lost to a strong Class 2A ranked team in Indpls. Scecina Memorial, too.

    Three of Guerin’s games were overtimes this season. Three of their losses were by a total of 10 points and four by 17 points.

    So, yeah, a difficult schedule by a pretty competitive team.

     
  • The business of coaching

    When it comes to business, Ed Collins is all business.

    When it comes to softball, he’s also all business.

    So it should come as no surprise that the second-year Guerin Catholic coach expects nothing less from his 16-player roster.
