  • A season that once looked so promising came to a crashing conclusion Friday night in the second-round of the Class A Sectional 46 for the Sheridan Blackhawks.
    Coach Bud Wright's squad wound up on the short end of a 55-12 shellacking at the hands of top-ranked Indianapolis Lutheran.

  • Sheridan showed the October hex and Indianapolis Tindley the door Friday night in a first round Class A Sectional 46 contest by rolling to a lopsided 34-6 victory.

  • It has been a cruel October for the Sheridan Blackhawks on the football field. Through August and September, SHS was 4-1, state-ranked and looking very much like the powerhouse program it has been for decades.
    Then the witching month arrived.
    What happened next was like a bad spell from an evil witch. The Blackhawks opened the month with a 28-14 loss to Seeger. That was followed by a 49-14 beatdown from thorn-in-the-side Eastern and then Friday, Carroll, which had only won two games coming in, topped Sheridan by 16, 38-22.

  • A season that started so promising has gone through a rough patch for the Sheridan Blackhawks football team.
    Sheridan started the year by beating the defending Class 2A state champs, Western Boone and then thrashed Class 3A Benton Central by 42 points to go 2-0. A setback against Tri-Central was followed with a couple more victories and a 4-1 mark.
    Since then, it’s been nothing but rough roads. The once state-ranked SHS gridders fell to Class 2A Seeger by a couple of scores and then last week lost any chance at a Hoosier Heartland Conference title when 8th-ranked Eastern Comets drilled the Blackhawks 49-14.

  • Two powerhouses came into last week’s game sporting 4-1 records. After Sheridan and Seeger battled to a two-score difference, Seeger left with a 5-1 mark and Sheridan fell to 4-2.
    Owen Snedeker threw for 252 yards and three touchdowns to lead the Patriots to a 28-14 victory.

  • Cameron Hovey continues to run all over Hoosier football teams this season. After rushing for more than 300 yards in a single game earlier this year, he led the Blackhawks again with 224 yards and five touchdowns in a 65-22 beatdown of Hoosier Heartland Conference foe Taylor Friday night.
    Sheridan is the 12th-ranked team in Class A and goes up in size the next two weeks when it takes on Class 2A's Seeger (4-1 overall) and undefeated conference foe Eastern, the 9th-ranked team in 2A.

  • 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.

  • It was a solid week for the league’s president Greg Emery as he pitched with the highest handicapped series of 395. With the performance of him and fellow team members they kept, team Ashpaugh Electric in first place.

    Sam Gibbons, and teammate Richard Law also pitched another good night, helping their team -- JBS United -- stay in fourth place to remain in the hunt. Price Heating pulled ahead in thirrd place with a great night pitching effort from Kyle Wethington with a handicapped series of 374.

Dan Myers of Kokomo, came in and immediately made his presence known pitching a game of 130. Fellow league member Jeff Ogle was right behind him with a 126 and after the second round Jeff had pulled ahead into first place, Dan fell to second, and Mitch Dwigans pulled into third. From there Dan Myers of Kokomo found his rhythm and held onto first place, Jeff Ogle of Noblesville finished second, Susan Dwigans of Westfield finished third, and Mike Milcoff of Noblesville finished fourth.

  • The sound of metal clanking is under way yet again in Biddle’s Memorial Park as the Sheridan Horseshoe League completed its first week.

    The first week found Mike Milcoff with an actual series of 204, he helped his team, Deem Electric, go 4-6 for the night. Price Heating is leading so far with 7 wins. Ashpaugh Electric and JBS United both won 6 games respectively.

  • 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.
