7 of State’s Top 8 HS Teams Among 24 In Field For Noblesville’s Annual

Bob Spacey Invitational Sponsored by Hamilton County Sports Daily.

 

They’re getting ready to tee it up for what has become a major statewide golf shootout at Fox Prairie Golf Course.

Morrow mug 1 jpegThe high school event is hosted by Noblesville and sponsored by Hamilton County Sports Daily. It will be played at the Noblesville venue on Saturday.

It was renamed the Bob Spacey Invitational last year in honor of the former and long-time Noblesville High School golf coach who now makes his home in Hot Springs Village Arkansas.

There’s also a possibility that coach Spacey will show up for the event.

Yeah, probably a better chance of the two-time state-champion golf coach showing up than Noblesville coach Gary Sewell giving me 4 shots a side whenever we finally tee it up.

(And, no, he didn’t promise me those strokes….are you kidding?)

It really is a pleasure for me to be involved in such a competitive, first-class event. The field has been expanded to 24 teams, and it will include several of  the state’s top ranked teams competing — including 7 of the top 8: #1 Westfield, #2 Columbus North, #3 Carmel, #4 Hamilton Southeastern, #5 Noblesville, #6 Pendleton Heights, #8 Zionsville, and 8 of the top 20.

“It will be one of the highlights of the season,’’ said the third-year Millers coach, a real gentleman who loves the game and truly enjoys coaching the Miller Men golfers.

Sheridan came out fast and quickly had the visitors in a 5-0 hole after just one inning. The displeasure was clear from Clinton Prairie head coach Matt Scott. Scott’s boys made a game of it however, pulling within a pair of runs at one point. 

“We came out fast and I think we got to their kid a little bit,” said Blackhawk skipper Matt Britt. “We didn’t come out ready to play on Tuesday so I’m proud of the guys for coming out like this tonight.”

The Blackhawk offense fired back up in the fifth, eventually winning in walk-off fashion via the mercy rule.

“I’m proud of the guys that they ended it in the fifth,” said Britt.

“The program has had success and the type of place that this community is, is great,” Dilley said in an interview with The Times on Tuesday.
Dilley most recently served as an assistant football coach at Butler. Before that he was head coach at Lawrence North for ten years and at Bishop Chatard where he guided the Trojans to back-to-back 3A state titles in 2001 and 2002.
“I’ve always enjoyed being a head coach and I love high school football,” said Dilley. “I had a great experience at Butler and this is another great opportunity.”
In addition, Dilley was the North-South All-Star Coaching Staff selection in 2001 and 2002; the 2001 Nike Indiana Coach of the Year; and the 2002 Indianapolis Star Super Team Coach of the Year.
Dilley talked to football players and parents in the Guerin Catholic gym Tuesday evening. He fielded a variety of questions from students and parents alike. Dilley said that he isn’t ready to get into talking schemes too much at this point.
“I think that I am both (high intensity and teaching-focused),” Dilley said. “Trademarks that I instill are preparation, teaching and hard work.”Dilley said that his first impression of the Guerin Catholic community was positive and said that he had met nothing but “great people” and “really nice young men and parents” around the football program.
