Trey Lyles of Indianapolis Tech scored 18 points, James Blackmon Jr. of Marion added 13 points on a perfect shooting performance, and Plymouthâ€™s Mack Mercer also put up double digits as the Indiana Junior All-Stars completed a double sweep of Kentucky at St. Xavier High School in Louisville Saturday.
The Indiana boys won 86-73, while the Indiana girls won their game 77-57.
PLYMOUTH â€” Keeping a friendâ€™s memory alive is a powerful thing.
Five years ago a pair of friends started making good on a promise to another. Mark Lindsey and Tony Plothow promised their buddy Craig Woolfington â€” dying of cancer â€” that they would make certain his daughter Kate had a chance to go to college.
GREENFIELD â€” James Blackmon Jr. drilled a huge 3-point shot in overtime to lead the IndyStar.com Indiana Junior All-Stars boys to a 108-102 victory over Kentucky in the first round basketball home-and-home doubleheaders at Greenfield-Central High School on Friday.
Blackmon, a 6-2 guard who will play at Marion as a senior, poured in a game-high 27 points, and Trevon Bluiett of Park Tudor chipped in 17 points as Indiana moved to 2-1 in the second year of the Junior series against Kentucky.
CULVER â€” Several Culver Girls Academy lacrosse team members were honored when the Indiana High School Womenâ€™s Lacrosse Association handed out its awards following the state championship game, won by CGA, on June 1.
Recognized as Academic All-Americans were Morgan Osborn, Clair Fay and Rory Byrne. To be named an Academic All-American, a player must maintain a 3.6 grade point average or higher, have played two years of varsity lacrosse, and be an active community service volunteer.
Recognized as US Lacrosse All-Americans representing Indiana were Olivia Rabbitt and Annie Morsches.
WINONA LAKE â€” However low Triton goes, Warsaw always seems to be a stroke better.
Less than a week after the Trojans suffered a disappointing 314-315 championship defeat at the hands of the host Tigers at the Warsaw Sectional, Triton came up a stroke short of a regional championship at Stonehenge.
GREENFIELD â€” Plymouth basketball standout Mack Mercer and his coach have been doing a little carpooling lately.
Mercer was selected in April as one of the six core players on the IndyStar.comâ€™s Junior All-Star team, when PHS head coach Ryan Bales was also selected as one of just three coaches to the team, and the two have been enjoying the off-the-court time theyâ€™ve been spending together lately.
PLYMOUTH â€” The coming of the summer means the start of the American Legion baseball season in Plymouth, and Post 27â€™s Diamond Spyders will have to deal with some key pitching losses but also return some key elements for the coming year.
â€śI think some of the teams in the area had some success with young teams and weâ€™re hoping for the same,â€ť said Post Manager Will Hostrawser. â€śWhen you lose two quality pitchers like Sean Liedtky and James Hackworth, those arenâ€™t necessarily guys youâ€™re going to replace. We will be as successful as our pitching this year.â€ť
WHITING â€” Thereâ€™s not much you can do against a team that is hitting over .400 this season.
Thatâ€™s what would ultimately be the Bremen Lionsâ€™ demise, as they came into the Class 2A Whiting Regional riding high after their Westview Sectional triumph with an 8-0 win over Churubusco and an 8-7 win over Westview in the final.
But unfortunately for Bremen, it ran into a finely-tuned hitting machine in Fort Wayne Luers Sectional winner Adams Central, who pounded out 14 hits on its way to an 11-1 six-inning rout of the Lions on Saturday afternoon in the first regional semifinal at Whiting.
BLOOMINGTON â€” Say this for Leah Heckaman: Sheâ€™s got a positive attitude.
Even though Heckaman had to face one of the toughest fields in years in the weight events, including a new state record holder in the discus, the Culver Academies junior was all smiles following Saturdayâ€™s IHSAA girls state track finals.
â€śI had a good day,â€ť said Heckaman, who finished fifth in the discus and 10th in the shot put. â€śI knew what I wanted to do, and even if everything didnâ€™t go perfect, Iâ€™m satisfied.â€ť
