  • 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.

  • The last weeks have been interesting, producing three different league leaders.

    With three weeks to go, the first-round winners are currently in second place trailing Traditional Concepts by two games. Traditional Concepts winning only 13 games during the first half of the season has double that amount so far during the four weeks of the season.

    The second annual Asphaugh Electric horseshoe tournament was held over the weekend. The Sheridan Horseshoe league played host for the event. With the hot and humid conditions only pitchers from Hamilton County participated.

    After the first game, Susan Dwigans of Westfield led by seven points. She maintained her lead at the end of two with Greg Emry of Sheridan closing the gap to two points.

  • Jeff Ogle led all pitchers in three individual categories to help Price Heating capture the first round in the Sheridan Horseshoes League. Price will compete against the winner of the second round at seasons end. Should Price take the second round they will be league champions with no playoff.

  • Mike and Michael Milcoff moved Deem into second place and will face Price Heating's mother and son combo of Susan and Mitch Dwigans for the first half leadership of the season.

    JBS United dropped into third place with the same amount of wins as Deem but trail by only four points.

  • The last three weeks has found JBS United and Price Heating exchanging the top spot in the league.
    On June 19, those teams battled each other for the top position. JBS United pitchers Sam Gibbons and Richard Reddick had good nights at the horseshoe courts but not good enough to defeat the mother and son combo of Susan and Mitch Dwigans, putting Price Heating on top again.

  • Milcoff takes top honors

    It was an exciting tournament, Saturday, at Biddle Memorial Park that came down to the wire.

    This was the Sheridan Horseshoe League's first open tournament of the season. Several pitchers from central Indiana showed up at the courts in Biddle's Memorial Park. The league ran two sessions in order to common date all pitchers.

  • It was Richard Law who led the Sheridan Horseshoe League in week two.

    Law finished first in three out of four categories. The hot-pitching Law's performance helped his team, JBS United, stay in first place.

  • The ceremony was short, sweet and brought tears to the eyes of many in attendance.

    Last Saturday — on Opening Day of the Sheridan Recreation Program’s baseball season — several hundred people gathered around Diamond 1 at Biddle Memorial Park for the revealing of “The Joe Grinstead Jr. Memorial Field.”

    Joe Grinstead Jr. died on April 7, after he lost a battle with a rare, fast-acting tumor. Those who knew him knew he was always ready to pitch in and help without hesitation, Sheridan Town Council Vice President Steve Fisher said to the mixed crowd of Grinsteads and their friends.

  • Horseshoe pitching is a sport that became popular during the glory days of Rome. The horseshoe toss grew into one of the most played games around. Whether at picnics, or company and family gatherings, people would gather for some fun and relaxation.

    The Sheridan Horseshoe League is ready to start another summer of fun and relaxation at the Biddle Memorial Park courts.The league will have its Organizational Meeting on May 1 at 6:30 p.m. Rain or shine you can find information, as some of the members will be at the courts April 21 between 9 a.m. and 11 a.m.

  • For the second time in the last week, Sheridan gave No. 4 Frankton all they could handle. And, for the second time in the last week, the Blackhawks came up on the short end.

    Frankton (22-3) erased an early deficit Friday night to defeat Sheridan (11-12) 72-63 in a semifinal game in the Class 2A Sectional 40 bracket at Lapel. Senior Ange Gnamkey scored a game-high 24 points on 8-of-13 shooting for Sheridan, who was unable to hold on to a first-quarter lead. The Blackhawks jumped out to a 15-14 advantage after one, but the Eagles used a 19-16 second quarter to take a two-point edge into the half.
