Duneland Athletic Conference
For the 42nd year in a row, it seems, yours truly -- the humble, balding sports scribbler -- will tell you who is going to win our local football sectionals and what teams will raise the hardware at Lucas Oil Stadium.
We all have our routines, our systematic way of doing things.
ST. JOHN | Lake Central's nine senior starters share a well-documented chemistry.
LAPORTE | Two solid programs built for the future proved Tuesday night they are playing for now.
Good things have been happening this season for Chesterton's defense, and Jordan Dilosa is usually in the vicinity.
VALPARAISO | An ugly first half didn't prevent Times No. 3 Lake Central from finishing off a beautiful Duneland Athletic Conference season.
PORTAGE | After a potentially debilitating pick-6 took all the momentum away from LaPorte, the Slicers did what they’ve done all season.
CHESTERTON | The red zone defense came up golden for Chesterton on Friday.
MICHIGAN CITY | It was almost like Crown Point running back Troy Grady and his quarterback, Artie Equihua, had a little competition going during the second half of Friday’s Duneland Athletic Conference season finale at Ames Field in Michigan City.
Less than a decade ago, Ann Nellessen was diagnosed with breast cancer.
OK, class. Time for a pop quiz.
Valparaiso was struggling to move the ball, as it has been prone to do this season, last Friday against Portage when Bryce Crook settled back to receive a punt late in the first quarter.
ST. JOHN | Valparaiso decided that the bridesmaid's dress stopped looking good in green.
Sure, Lindsay Kusbel is going to Grand Valley State to play basketball. And sure, the ratio of basketball to soccer-related links that pop up in a Google search of her name is about five to one.
CROWN POINT | Alaina Chacon was a surprise when she appeared at volleyball tryouts in Crown Point.
CHESTERTON | Injuries have long been part of sports and rare is the team that can go through an entire season unscathed.
For three straight years from 2009 to 2011, Wheeler and Rensselaer met in the Class 2A sectional, doing so twice with a title on the line.
PORTAGE | The last time the Chesterton boys soccer team won consecutive sectional titles the Trojans ended up playing for a state championship.
ST. JOHN | Lake Central's alumni whisper in the ears of current players -- literally, coach Jereme Rainwater says.
MERRILLVILLE | The knock on defending Class 2A state champion Crown Point, with its five returning starters, has been its lack of offensive firepower.
