FRANKLIN â€”Â Time is on Quentyn Carpenterâ€™s side. It just wasnâ€™t Wednesday.
The Triton sophomoreâ€™s start was delayed five hours due to weather at the second round of the 75th Annual IHSAA Boys State Golf Finals, and he struggled to follow up his even-par 72 first round with a 7-over 79 at The Legends of Indiana Golf Course to slip from 19th to 24th in Franklin.
FRANKLIN â€” Whatever happens next, it's already one for the history books.
Triton sophomore Quentyn Carpenter survived a rough stretch at the end of his round at The Legends to post an even-par 72 and make the cut out to the second day at the 75th Annual IHSAA Boys State Golf Finals in Franklin Tuesday.
BLOOMINGTON â€” Despite some weighty expectations and the sweltering heat at the Robert C. Haugh Track and Field Complex, Waverly Neer kept her cool Saturday.
Even with temperatures running in the mid-90s, the Culver Girls Academy star managed to break a pair of state records in the 1600- and the 3200-meter runs at the 38th Annual Girls Track and Field State Finals, clocking a 4:43.46 stop in the 1600 meters to shatter the old record by nearly six seconds before setting a new standard in the 3200 in 10:20.66 an hour and a half later.
BREMEN â€” Bremen High School has hired former Mount Vernon Nazarene University JV coach Ryan Eakins as its new head basketball coach.
Eakins was the JV menâ€™s basketball coach at Mount Vernon Nazarene in Mount Vernon, Ohio during the 2010-11 season and is a former assistant coach at his alma mater, Grace College. He is moving to the town of Bremen where he plans to be a substitute teacher in the Bremen Public School System.
Eakins played basketball at Grace College and Seymour High School.
FORT WAYNE â€” A sectional championship is nice, but Tritonâ€™s boys golf team has even bigger fish to fry.
The Trojans won their first-ever sectional title by beating out four-peat defending champion Warsaw with a fifth-man score on the Tigersâ€™ home course at Stonehenge Golf Club last Friday. But Triton head coach Jack Carpenter pledged his team wouldnâ€™t be resting on any laurels as the little Class A squad hunts for a second-straight state finals berth at the Homestead Regional Thursday.
BREMEN â€” The North Central Soccer Association (NCSA) awarded Plymouth's Micah Harner the First Annual T. Edward Ummel Young Referee of the Year Award last weekend during the NCSA tournament in Bremen.
Ummel, a local attorney active in family, civic, church and soccer activities, passed away last October. He was the long-time treasurer of Argos Youth Soccer (AYS) as well as a coach, and he also served the NCSA in scheduling games and as the NCSA referee instructor.
BLOOMINGTON â€” There arenâ€™t many records left for Waverly Neer to break.
Even on a historic day that featured a total of six record-breaking performances, the Culver Academies senior managed to stand out, knocking off not one but two state standards on her way to championships in both the 1600 meters and the 3200 meters at the 38th Annual IHSAA Girls Track and Field State Finals at Robert C. Haugh Track and Field Complex in Bloomington.
ELKHART â€” Culver Community earned its first sectional title in 26 years by battling from behind. On Saturday, the Cavaliers simply dug themselves too big a hole to climb out of.
Eastside plated six runs batting through the order during a big third inning, and although Culver scored three runs in the fifth and sixth, it was too little, too late as the Cavs suffered a season-ending 7-3 loss at the Class 2A Jimtown Baseball Regional in Elkhart.
Eastside went on to fall in 10-2 in the championship to Hanover Central at the tourney, while Culver closed out a banner year at 13-14.
