Multiple Teams · Fishers Lady Tigers Basketball Season Preview


Fishers Tigers Girls Basketball Preview


 

Preview

The Lady Tigers return 3 seniors in a team that has seen a lot of progress since last year’s 6-17 season. Offensively Fishers returns it’s leading scorer in Junior Ali Gerka as well as two other probable starters Alexandra Bankovich and Toni Grace. Both Bankovich and Gradce played spurts at point guard last year. Senior Audrey Turner looks to continue her dominance on the defensive end after leading the team in blocks last year. Her presence in the paint makes it nearly impossible for a team to get in and get up those close range shots. Turner also looks to increase her rebounding and offensive efficiency this year which will create a more balanced attack for the Lady Tigers. Coach Michael Gaines looks to continue his success with a 139-71 record as a head coach at Fishers. A conference and sectional championship are on the Tigers minds entering this season. The Tigers officially open their season at Center Grove, Thursday November 3.

Multiple Teams · Football Tigers at @carmelathletics Sectional Championship Preview


Fishers Tigers at Carmel Greyhounds


Fishers (4-6)

HC: Rick Wimmer

Key Players

Matt Wolff (12-19 103 yards in 2 games)

R.J. Potts (17 receptions 341 yards)

Max Shores (70 carries 331 yards)

Sectional play is always a fresh start for the season in which the Fishers Tigers are led by quarterback, Matt Wolff. Wolff and the Tigers took full advantage last Friday night against the visiting Millers. A quick start led to a victory for the Tigers as Wolff scampered into the end zone giving the Tigers life. In every game Fishers has won, they have scored first to help gain momentum, which gives their defense a great opportunity to play with a lead. A dominant performance last week by the Fishers defense helped solidify the win with two interceptions late in the game. The past 3 seasons Fishers has lost to Carmel in the sectional championship, but this is a team Coach Wimmer believes can win the sectional and make it into regionals for the first time in 6A.

Carmel (6-4)

HC: John Hebert

Key Players

Jake McDonald (Junior 1st year starter)

Ethan Merriweather (Ball State commit)

Kurt Rafdal (IU Commit 6’6 TE)

Excellence, it is what Coach John Hebert does by leading the Greyhounds to a 5-4 regular season and a win over Hamilton Southeastern in the first round of sectionals last Friday. Nothing is done yet though, with the history of Carmel High School getting a trophy, that is what matters, anything else is considered underachieving. Junior quarterback Jake McDonald has done a great job stepping in since week 1, when senior Elliot Charlebois went down with an ankle injury. A high powered offensive air attack shows that he loves to spread the field and get it to their fast receivers. They offense has two Division I commits at receiver. Kurt Rafdal a big time tight end at 6’6 is heading to IU next year. McDonald almost always has a guaranteed 1st down with Rafdal on the field. It will be a battle of the defenses come Friday night while both teams hope to turn around their seasons.

Meet Recap

Today was the IHSAA State Finals at the Lavern Gibson Course in Terre Haute, Indiana. It was a warm and sunny day, and the girls were excited to compete!

The race got off to a quick start with Carmel’s Sarah Leinheiser and DeKalb’s Tyler Schwartz leading the pack. On a tough course, they came through the first mile in 5:30 with a large pack of elite runners just behind. Very soon it was obvious who would be crowned state champions, as Carmel dominated the race scoring just 44 points. Following in 2nd was a very talented and deep Ft. Wayne Carroll scoring 113 pts. and putting two in the top 10. Homestead also proved to be a very formidable team also with their top two in 7th and 8th. They finished 3rd with 157pts. Zionsville came out strong as well with their first two runners in the top 20.
The battle for 5th was going to be a close one, and it all came down to which team had the most depth. Noblesville led the way with a Abi Little finishing 12th overall in the race. They were able score 245pts. to Fishers 282 today, packing in their 2-5 runners well for a 5th place finish.
Fishers was led by Miya Wai scoring 27pts. for the Tigers in a time of 19:15. She was followed by Tessa Kraft and Abby Carter in 59th and 61st just .7 apart in 19:46 & 19:47. Corinne O’Leary was 73rd with a 20:24, and our 5th scorer of the day was Liz Rogers in 105th with a 20:49. Kamya Lapsley and Corinne Yorkman were 109th and 116th today with 20:54 and 21:06.
As a team the Tigers placed 8th overall, just 6 points behind Bloomington North and 13 points from 6th place team Valparaiso. This was the highest place in Fishers school history!!!

It was a fantastic season and the girls have a lot to be proud of. This is a very young team, and I look forward to seeing what they are able to do in the seasons to come! Great job to all!!!

Game Recap

The Noblesville Millers traveled to Fishers to face the host Tigers in the opening round of IHSAA Sectional 4 presented by the Indianapolis Colts. The Tigers came out hot to begin both the first and second half. The Tigers rolled up 220 yards as Michael Noble ran for 84 yards and quarterback Matthew Wolff ran for 87 yards. Wolff found the end zone as did Trevor Newman late in the game. Wolff was efficient passing as he finished 10 of 15 for only 79 yards, but 2 short touchdown passes. Noblesville couldn’t really get going on offense as Ryan Barnes ran for 44 yards, but the other runners were held under 40 yards. The dual quarterback system didn’t get going either as Grant Gremel finished 8 for 20 for 105 yards and Barnes was 2 of 3 for 66 yards.

The Tigers face the winner of Southeastern and Carmel.

Game Summary

1Q

FHS (5:46) – Matt Wolff 14 yd run (Ben Norton kick); 3 plays – 21 yds (0-7)

The Fishers Tigers won the opening kickoff and chose to defer to the second half giving the ball to Noblesville to start the game. After 2 incomplete passes, the Millers were forced to punt. The Tigers offense led by junior quarterback Matthew Wolff moved for 1 first down but were forced to punt. Taylor Soper had a beautiful pass that Bryce Reardon downed at the Millers 1. On 3rd down, Seth Sontich and Jeff Inman combined for a sack and the Millers were forced to punt. The punt was partially blocked and the Tigers took over at the 21 yard line. Wolff kept the ball and found the end zone to open the scoring from 14 yards out. On the Millers next possession, a fake punt on 4th down was sniffed out by the defense.

2Q

FHS (10:15) – DeVonte Adams 11 yd pass from Wolff (Norton kick); 9 plays – 39 yds (0-14)
NOB (7:27) – Nolan Ginther 20 yd pass from McGwire Plumer (Jack Knight kick); 7 plays – 81 yds (7-14)

On the first play of the 2nd quarter, the Tigers converted on a 4th down run inside the red zone to keep the drive going. On 3rd down, Wolff found DeVonte Adams in the corner of the end zone to extend the lead to 14 points. The Millers offense really got going on the next drive. Quarterback Grant Gremel found Ben Gruver for 34 yards to get into Fishers territory. The Millers pulled out a trick play as the snap was handed off twice before wide receiver McGwire Plumer found a wide open Nolan Ginther to get Noblesville on the board. Both offense seemed to stall to end the 2nd quarter as Fishes held a 14-7 lead at halftime.

3Q

FHS (8:32) – RJ Potts 5 yd pass from Wolff (Norton kick); 9 plays – 80 yds (7-21)
NOB (4:50) – Jackson Thurman 39 yd pass from Ryan Barnes (Knight kick); 11 plays – 78 yds (14-21)

The Tigers came out hot again to start the second half with 3 straight passes – RJ Potts danced around to get a first down and Isaiah Dunnuck tracked down another pass. Michael Nobles then put together a nice run before Matthew Wolff found RJ Potts on a 5 yard slant for a touchdown. Noblesville answered as Ryan Barnes converted on a short 4th down run and continued a long, time-consuming drive before Barnes found Jack Thurman for an answering touchdown. On the third and final possession of the quarter, the Tigers got 10 yards on a screen followed by 15 yard runs by Shores and 9 by Wolff. Two consecutive sacks by the Millers forced a punt that was fumbled and recovered by the Tigers to end the 3rd quarter.

4Q

FHS (0:46) – Trevor Newman 12 yd run (Norton kick); 3 plays – 20 yds (14-28)

The Tigers couldn’t take advantage of the short field as Ben Norton’s 49 yard field goal fell just short. On the Millers possession, Jake Winkle busted into the backfield to push back the Millers but Barnes again found Plumer for 27 yards to keep the drive going. The Tigers defense stepped up and forced a punt. The Tigers tried to eat clock and were able to drive into Millers territory before a holding penalty set up 3rd and 11. Wolff ran for 7, but the Tigers were forced to punt. Taylor Soper dropped another great punt and Reardon downed it at the 3 yard line. With time running out, Seth Sontich picked off a pass to get the ball back to the Tigers. Trevor Newman found the end zone from 12 yards to seal the game. Noblesville did put together a last ditch drive with less than 30 seconds left, but DeVonte Adams intercepted the pass at the 3 yard line and Wolff took a knee to win the game.

Sectional 4 Preview

Fishers Tigers vs Noblesville Millers


 

 

 Fishers (3-6 0-6 HCC)

 

HC: Rick Wimmer

Key players

R.J. Potts  (271 yards leads team, 34 tackles)

Seth Sontich (54 tackles 2 forced fumbles,1 int)

Devonte Adams (284 all purpose yards)

A regular season most of Tiger nation wants to forget, can easily be forgotten come sectional time. It’s a fresh start this week as the Tigers come off of a gut wrenching loss to Zionsville to conclude their regular season. Injuries have been a huge part of the 3-6 season, with changes on both the offensive and defensive line, the defensive secondary and the quarterbacks. Matt Wolff looks to be the probable starter as Jon Vore is out with a concussion. A tall task to fill as Wolff’s first start of his varsity career comes in sectional play where there is little room for error. With offensive struggles this year the defense has been the strong point for the Tigers this season, led by senior defensive back R.J. Potts and junior linebacker Seth Sontich who has been very successful since entering the starting lineup. As most of Hamilton County knows any team coached by Rick Wimmer is a team with the chance to win a sectional title.

 

Noblesville (4-5 3-3 HCC)

 

HC: Jason Simmons

Key players

Chandler Hurst (411 rushing yards)

Jackson Thurman (426 receiving yards)

Ryan Barnes (849 pass yards, 757 rush yards)

When head coach Jason Simmons took over this summer no one knew what to expect. Junior Ryan Barnes was next to come in an out of state transfer who just happened to be a talented quarterback. Barnes who has started every game but the previous two weeks due to a concussion leads the team in both passing and rushing yards. The Millers have surprised a lot of people this year finishing 4-5 with big wins at Zionsville and at conference champion Brownsburg. Game plans and personnel have changed as Noblesville took on Fishers in week 3 of the regular season. After a late 4th quarter win the Millers know that it wont be an easy task coming to Fishers and defeating them again in the Tiger Cage. Coach Simmons looks to get his first sectional win as a head coach for the Millers come Friday night.

Meet Recap

The Tigers advanced to next weekend€’s IHSAA State Cross Country Championship with a 3rd place finish at the IHSAA Semi State held on Saturday at the Blue River CC Venue in Shelbyville. The cool weather and flat course made for a perfect day for racing. The Tigers took advantage of the ideal conditions as four out of the five scoring members of the team set PRs.

The start made a sharp funnel after about 400 yards and the Tigers were out quick to avoid any congestion as the course narrowed. Ashton Murray got out fast right behind Curtis Eckstein (Oldenburg Academy) and Gabe Fendel (Hamilton Southeastern). Josh Roth, always near the front, and Sam Kuhn followed closely.

At the 1000 meter mark, the much anticipated battle between Eckstein and Fendel was developing as both had put several seconds on the entire field. The chase pack included Roth, Kuhn, Ethan Meyer and Murray.

The hallway point of the race occurs after the runners have gone through several switchbacks. The runners had started to thin out and the chase pack had shrunk with Roth in 7th and Kuhn in 14th. Meyer was in 20th and in the middle of the second group with Brandon Reyes and Murray just off the pace.

In the last 1000 meters of the race, Eckstein was able to pull away from Fendel and cross the finish line in 14:34.4 to take the victory. Kuhn was part of the first group to come down the long straightaway to the finish, crossing the line at 15:32.8 for 7th place (PR). Roth finished in 10th place with a time of 15:39.1 (PR). Murray crossed the line in 27th place with a time of 15:53.5. Brandon Reyes finished in 38th with a time of 16:04.4 (PR). Andrew Runion was right behind Reyes, finishing with a time of 16:04.7, good enough for 40th place (PR).

The Carmel Greyhounds won the Semi State with 53 team points. The Hamilton Southeastern Royals were 2nd with a team score of 77 points. The Tigers took 3rd place with 95 points. Also advancing to next week’s State Championship were the Brebeuf Jesuit Braves, Avon Orioles and Zionsville Eagles.

This will be the third year in a row the Tigers have competed as a team at the IHSAA State Cross Country Championship and the sixth time in 11 years. Both the girls and boys teams from Fishers will compete next Saturday, October 29th at the LaVern Gibson Cross Country Course in Terre Haute (girls @ 1:00pm and boys @ 1:45pm).

Meet Recap

What a great day to be a Tiger! The girls traveled to Shelbyville today for the IHSAA Semi-State held at the Blue River Cross Country Course. With nearly perfect racing conditions, the girls were primed to race fast and they did just that.

Noblesville was battling back and forth with the Tigers and took the lead through the first 3 runners, but we had a strong pack finish close together which outscored the Millers by just 4 points. At the finish line it was the Tigers with a very impressive 2nd place!!!! Carmel was the Semi-State champion scoring a perfect 15 points and a legendary performance putting 5 girls under 18:00!

Individually, Miya Wai dropped 1 second from her best time finishing 10th overall with an 18:21. Tessa Kraft placed 22nd with a new PR of 18:50. Abby Carter was 29th just 1 second from her PR, while Kamya Lapsley PRd by 2 seconds just behind her in 31st.
