Porter County Conference

BOONE GROVE

Players to watch: Lukas Kemp, Sr., OH; Brandan Crane, Sr., OH/S; Fred Mioduski, Sr., MH; Brad Gardin, Sr., MH.

Outlook: The Wolves remained competitive last season with an untested squad that returns nearly intact. Kemp leads a quartet of seniors that are looking to get Boone Grove back to a winning record.

Quote: "If you're competitive when you're young, you expect to come back and be stronger the next season." !~ Coach Matt McKay

 

HANOVER CENTRAL

Players to watch: Kevin Roper, Sr., S; Nick Stangler, Sr., OH; Max Johnson, Jr., MH.

Outlook: The Wildcats had their first winning season in 12 years last year and look to continue the trend with an experienced roster under second-year coach Travis Lechien.

Quote: "We have a nice solid group of seniors, and we're also continuing to build the program with our camps." !~ Lechien

 

HEBRON

Players to watch: Cody Artuso, Sr., MH; Jay Patz, Sr., MH; Trey Biggs, Jr., S; John Pauer, Sr., OH.

Outlook: The Hawks were the class of Northwest Indiana last season when their core players were just juniors. With Artuso and Patz leading the way along with Biggs, expect the Hawks to continue their dominance.

Quote: "Cody and Jay are two very talented players, and they could be starting to get some Division I looks this year." !~ Coach Kelly Dickensheets

 

KOUTS

Players to watch: Steve Keller, Sr., OH; Andrew Birky, Jr., OH; Danny Cullison, Sr., S.

Outlook: Former Kouts athlete John Selman takes over an experienced squad after coaching the junior varsity last season.

Quote: "This is a perfect situation for me. What else could I ask for when it comes to guys that know me and know my system? They've adjusted very well to me so far." !~ Selman

 

LACROSSE

Players to watch: Sam Culver, Jr., OH/S.

Outlook: After fielding a team of almost all seniors last season, coach Ken Roslansky will lead a youthful Tigers squad this season that will gain much-needed experience with every match.

 

MORGAN TWP.

Players to watch: Brandon Murphy, Sr., MH; Mark Ehrstein, Sr., S; Scott Snider, Sr., OH.

Outlook: The Cherokees set the school record for wins last season with 14, but both Brandon Grubl and Garrett Heinold graduated. Murphy leads a trio of seniors, who all have starting experience.

Quote: "Brandon and Garrett will be difficult to replace, but we are looking to build upon the success of last year, not sit back and admire it." !~ Coach Matt Bien

 

WASHINGTON TWP.

Players to watch: Garrett Short, Jr., MH; Joe Nugent, So., S/OH.

Outlook: First-year coach and W.T. alum Danielle Wigglesworth takes over the program and has spent much of the fall training camp installing her system with the youthful Senators. The team will improve throughout the season as they get used to the new era.

Quote: "It's taking me some time to figure out how to get to them and make them feel the way I want them to feel." !~ Wigglesworth
