Porter County Conference
WEST LAFAYETTE | Portage had flown under the radar for most of the regular season and did the same in the state tournament.
WHITING | According to Bishop Noll senior Chad Mateja, he just wants to do his job and help his team win.
WEST LAFAYETTE | Portage didn’t get any hits off Northridge’s Haley Nixon until the sixth inning.
MONTICELLO | For five innings Ashley Yoways was unhittable. The junior pitcher for Hanover Central had a no-hitter and a 3-0 lead in the semifinal of the Class 3A Twin Lakes Semistate.
FULTON | When Jason Dorshorst rolled the dice with Ryan Klikus against Washington Township in the sectional, it came up seven.
It was third or fourth grade. Bailly Elementary School classmates Ryan Klikus and Zac Ryan were working on their multiplication skills. To make studying a little more interesting, they put 60 seconds on a timer to see who would get done first.
Hanover Central will have first-basemen Kori Davis in the lineup for Saturday's Class 3A Twin Lakes Semistate game against Fairfield.
CEDAR LAKE | Larry McMillen is like the absent-minded professor of region softball. His resume is like bin Laden, hard to find, perhaps hidden in some cave somewhere.
It was his glove that earned Jake Wright a starting position as a freshman, when Boone Grove won a sectional title. Three years later, it's his glove that has kept him there, helping the Wolves to another crown.
CEDAR LAKE | Ivy Dawson owns a bird. His name is Horatio. She brings it to every Hanover Central softball game.
CEDAR LAKE | Unchecked anger is a big problem on this planet. It causes a lot of bad things.
CEDAR LAKE | So far so good for the Hanover Central Wildcats. And junior pitcher Ashley Yoways.
WASHINGTON TOWNSHIP | No one really wanted to say it, but last Wednesday's 1-0 victory by Morgan Township over state-ranked No. 3 and host Washington Township was really the championship game in this Class A sectional.
PORTER TOWNSHIP | When Boone Grove pitcher Dean Hill found out Monday that the sectional championship was being postponed a day, he had one message for his coach: give me the ball.
Sammi Adams is like Red Auerbach. Winning isn't a thing. It is the only thing.
CEDAR LAKE | People shouldn't be surprised when they see Melissa Balkema on the center of the stage. The sophomore from Hanover Central has been there for much of her life.
WASHINGTON TOWNSHIP | Once Joe Dougherty got a lead, his confidence grew along with his ability to hit the strike zone.
PORTER TOWNSHIP | In a pitching duel between Boone Grove’s Dean Hill and Hebron’s Kyle Joyce, Hill allowed more hits and had fewer strikeouts, but he had the advantage where it mattered most: the scoreboard.
Ask a Porter County Conference athlete or coach about Hanover Central's departure and many of them will give you the same answer.
Just like a new glove that takes a while to break in, Caleb Narron needed a little time to fit in at Boone Grove.
