Steve Hanlon Column
Kristen Alamillo played softball at Gavit this past spring. Which means one thing. You've never heard of her before.
I've heard it. You've heard it. We've all heard it for many generations.
So how was the parade? The picnic? The potato-e salad? (Just like Dan Quayle, I'm from Indiana, too!)
In a time where much of the news coming out of Gary isn't cheery, a group of young men at West Side High School did something remarkable. It was off the charts great.
Josh Borst wasn't born with a silver spoon in his mouth. Everything he got in life came with great effort after jumping hurdles in his way. Yet, every time the Calumet senior had a challenge, he also had a success story to tell soon after.
It's been written that life is a vapor. Boy, it sure seems that way. It seemed like yesterday we were putting out our football tab last August. Now, we're planning the next one.
A 6-1 spanking by Munster late in the baseball season might've been what propelled Andrean into today's Class 3A state championship game in Indianapolis.
It was December 1999. These shoes were standing inside the Hammond Civic Center taking in The Times Region Roundball Rumble. It was a thrilling game in front of a packed house.
I would like to thank Steve Hanlon for his column "What's Going on Down by the River."
COLUMBUS | The gym was thinning out Wednesday night at Columbus North. A talented Indiana All-Star team just finished a sweep of the Junior All-Stars.
COLUMBUS | The legends lined up on the bleachers for a photograph, the younger ones wearing the historic white jersey with the coveted blue letters that read what they have since 1940.
BLOOMINGTON | Brad Lambert had to have a little chat with his daughter, Brooke, this week. At first it will seem like a story that Hallmark would never – ever – do a card on.
Just when you think you can't take any more nonsense, you hear a knock on your door. Thud. Thud.
This is a breathless time of year for high school sports. Championships of all kinds are being decided around Indiana in several spring sports.
When Mike Hackett started his career as a teacher and boys basketball coach 20-plus years ago, the landscape of Hoosier Hysteria was much different. It was like an old movie with Gene Hackman.
Calumet High School has been on double-secret academic probation, judged on a scale put together by Tony Bennett, Indiana's former czar of public education. We all know where that led.
Michael Leyendecker nervously waited in the press box Thursday night. The final results of the Crown Point Sectional in boys track and field were being compiled.
Just when you thought it was fixed, a tire goes flat and the muffler falls off. Again. And then someone steals the fuzzy dice hanging from the rear-view mirror.
HAMMOND | It doesn't happen like this at other places, where high school softball is a much bigger deal. Towns where names and games are always in the newspaper.
You hear about star athletes flunking off teams time and time again. Or you hear rumors of a star athlete getting a grade "changed" in order to keep him or her eligible, which is a crime.
