  • Hoosier Heartland Conference foe Clinton Prairie was just what the doctor ordered for the 14th-ranked Sheridan Blackhawks.
    After falling to ranked Tri-Central 21-0 on Sept. 4, the Hawks have had plenty of time to sit and think -- and get angry.
    And even though the game didn't start so well, Cameron Hovey’s 55-yard touchdown run gave the visiting Blackhawks the lead just before halftime and Sheridan never looked back in a 34-7 win.

  • Tri-Central scored one touchdown in each quarter except the third and held the sixth-ranked Sheridan Blackhawks scoreless in a 21-0 Hoosier Heartland Conference opener for both teams on Sept. 4.
    The victory negated another strong rushing performance from senior Cameron Hovey who ran 25 times for 109 yards. Hovey also recorded a game-high 15 tackles, including one for a loss.

  • It’s been 12 years – the 2008 season – since Sheridan started a football season 2-0. Well, after the Blackhawks’ 48-6 romp over Benton Central, SHS is undefeated going into week three.
    And it started quickly for the Black and White. Silas Devaney’s 57-yard touchdown run triggered a 28-point first quarter and the Blackhawks never looked back.

  • Silas Devaney’s only pass attempt of the night proved to be the go-ahead score in the fourth quarter, a 34-yard toss to Cale Cummings, that allowed the 12th-ranked Class A Blackhawks to upset top-ranked and two-time defending Class 2A state champion Stars.
    Cameron Hovey’s two-point conversion run proved decisive when Western Boone’s Robby Taylor scored on a 1-yard run to pull within a point. The Stars went for the win with a two-point try but Sheridan stuffed the run to hold on to victory.

  • OK, some positive news.
    And this should put a little extra spring in the steps of Indiana high school athletes this summer.
    The IHSAA issued a statement this week that it plans to waive the rule for the annual moratorium week.
    It was scheduled for June 29-July 5, 2020.
    But, at this point, all high school-sponsored activities can now resume on July 1.

  • WEST LEBANON - Despite a lopsided loss to Seeger Friday night, the Sheridan Blackhawks get a chance to play for the Hoosier Heartland Conference's top spot Friday in a showdown game against Eastern.
    SHS and Eastern are both 5-0 in the HHC. The Blackhawks are 5-2 overall while Eastern is 7-0. The winner plays the next week for the conference title. If it's Sheridan, 5-2 Carroll is waiting in the wings. Eastern faces 4-3 Clinton Prairie.

  • As the season is coming to the end, the teams have fought hard for their placing. Pitchers have tried to get their teams into top place and the season has told the tale.

    Richard Law has come in hot yet again as he pitched a 93 actual game. He has been so close to that 100 mark and has pitched very consistent.

  • With the season coming to an end, all the teams in the Sheridan Horseshoes League have been making strong final pushes to be the top team.

    The pitchers came in Tuesday to play and we sure did see them push as metal was hitting the stakes at Biddle’s Memorial Park. Richard Law of JBS United, helped solidify his team at first place with an actual game of 99. He has been on fire the past few weeks inching closer to yet another 100 actual game in his career.

  • The Sheridan Horseshoe league had its second interleague tournament this week. The league voted on having two interleague tournaments, one in the beginning of the year and the other in the middle of the year to separate the first half of the season from the second half.

    Brad McKinney took first place as he was pitching hot right out of the gate. Close behind him was Mike McKinney who easily had one of his best games all season in his final game of the night.

  • As week 6 finished Noblesville’s very own Jeff Ogle and Mitch Dwigans helped push their team into second place claiming some much needed wins. The rest of the league stayed roughly the same with equal wins. Team Ashpaugh is pulling ahead and sitting nicely on top of the leaderboard at first place. Don Dwigans and Rick Downs helped their teams with solid pitching nights as well.

  • That time is inching closer for Horseshoe pitchers in Biddle Memorial Park in Sheridan.

    The Sheridan Horseshoe League will be starting up soon and celebrating one of the country's oldest sports. From the moment you walk up to the courts, to the time you pitch your first shoe, you’ll get some unexpected feelings when that shoe clangs off that post.

  • After a season-opening loss to a powerful Western Boone team that would roll through the season undefeated, the Sheridan Blackhawks football team won seven straight en route to an 8-3 final record.
    Sheridan finished the season ranked in the top 10 in Class A polls.
    It wound up being a true defensive struggle in driving rain as the Monroe Central Golden Bears ended Sheridan's season in the sectional finals by a score of 8-0 in a rematch of last year’s season-ender.

  • Bubbling Caldron picks Sheridan contest
    Hello Sports Fans.
    Hoosier Hysteria – gridiron style – has finally arrived and ol’ Bubbles is sizzling hot and raring to go . . . and especially to put the last week behind me! Sheesh, after a stellar season I went and belly-flopped at the end. In my defense though, who really saw Sheridan falling to a .500 Heritage Christian team? Or Roncalli upsetting Guerin? Or even a 1-7 Husky team knocking off a .500 Twin Lakes squad?
    No matter. Bubbles finished 40-25 for the season and is primed and ready for sectional!
    Sheridan at Tri-Central
    Were the Blackhawks looking past Heritage Christian last week? Was Bud resting the boys? Was half the team ailing with food poisoning? It’s hard to figure how SHS – winner of seven in a row – could fall 27-14 to 4-4 HC. But fall they did.

  • INDIANAPOLIS — As a light sprinkling rain fell on Heritage Christian School’s senior night, the Heritage Christian Eagles soared late over the Sheridan Blackhawks, winning by a score of 27-14.
    In a seven-and-a-half minute opening drive that included a fourth down conversion on their own side of the field and a third-and-12 conversion for another first down, Sheridan quarterback Drake Delph found the end zone on a 12-yard scramble that required tremendous amounts of improvisation. With a successful extra point from Cameron Hovey, the score was 7-0 with 4:34 left in the first quarter.

  • Since the Sheridan Horseshoe League was rained out a couple of times, the members had to play catch up this week. Instead of their normal 10 win night they had a couple of 10 win nights!

    Price Heating recaptured the league lead by winning 18 of the 20. JBS United moved into second by winning 16 of 20, eight of which were against Traditional Concepts knocking them out of first and into third place.
