  1. NLC 2017/18

    Yesterday it was officially announced that Scott Radeker is the new Varsity Boys Basketball Coach at Northridge High School. He most recently was the head coach at Lafayette Jeff (97-88) after posting the best record of his tenure this past season. Before he coached for the Bronchos he was at North Montgomery (120-80). He was also an assistant at Noblesville after moving to Indiana from New York to pursue his dream of coaching Indiana Boys Basketball. He is one of 2 assistants for this years Indiana All Star team.

    With the start of boys basketball season right around the corner I figured I'd start a thread for NLC Boys Basketball for the upcoming season. Not sure what to expect out of Northridge this year, but I think they'll be middle of the pack like last year. Our girls team I look to be at/near the top of the NLC yet again even though we lost some key seniors after last years semi state run. Also former Concord Basketball standout is making international news (Netherlands). http://landstedebasketbal.nl/nieuws/12666/franko-house-voelt-zich-thuis-in-zwolle.html

  4. Romeo cuts list to 7

    yes! Glad to have him wearing Candy Stripes, that announcement deal was way over hyped, but still very glad to keep him home.
  5. if you need an assistant when you take over the program just pm me lol But in all seriousness, hate seeing another great area coach hang it up, but can't blame him one bit.
  6. I tend to agree with all that you mentioned, we share the border with Washington Twp, which is the town of Bristol and basically mostly hills/farmland. A smaller (not small) more rural school might be more attractive than a mega school all the way across Elkhart (they're Central students now)
  7. Plymouth was one of the founding members (1 of only 2 left unless you count NW). It isn't the most fun drive on a week night from Middlebury to Plymouth via the pothole ridden Plymouth/Goshen Trail, but neither is a trip from Warsaw or Syracuse to Osceola, Mishawaka, or South Bend. Size/Sport wise, would rule out an ideal match for Fairfield, Jimtown, West Noble, or former member Bremen. I don't think we're gonna find a better fit than Mishawaka, St. Joe, Marian, or East Noble all things considered....just not sure on the interest from any of them.
  8. I too have enjoyed our recent matches against St. Joe...but if i had to bet money, it'd be on Jimtown. If I had my wish it would be Edwardsburg (not gonna happen because seasons don't line up). New Prairie would be great fit, but too far for Syracuse/Warsaw to drive on a week night. East Noble would be good too but I'm thinking they're happy in the NE8. Mishawaka/St. Joe/Marian would all be great fits too. But I'm guessing it's Jimtown or go back to 7 for a while.
  9. NLC 2017/18

    Congrats to Goshen and Northwood on their wins last night. I was pretty surprised to see Goshen knock out Warsaw after the beating they took in the first match. Good luck to all the teams tonight, and can't wait til Friday night at North Side Gym!
  10. yep, early season games we're blinded for a good 3+ quarters
  11. Meant to say sell us the stands and box, but that's what I get for screwing around on here while I'm supposed to be working. Maybe we trade you even up for our old stands, and we take Washington Twp as additional trade value. All joking aside, both are very nice fields, I just prefer the atmosphere at Rice over Memorial any day. Maybe one day we in Middlebury won't have to face the sun every Friday night in the fall.
  12. 2021 I believe, also both schools have played at Rice Field in the past. Memorial has a really nice field and bleachers, but Rice is clearly the more historic and better atmosphere for football. I'm still hoping Memorial can work out a trade deal with us in Middlebury to get some nice newer bleachers and a decent press box!
  13. I believe it was Chuck Freeby that I saw suggesting Central D line start practicing their "swim moves"
  14. @rogergrossman1 Warsaw football coach Phil Jensen just told his players he is retiring from coaching effective immediately. He steps down as the All time winning coach
  15. Warsaw Coach Phil Jensen Retires

    I'm happy with their hire, we will become a better conference from top to bottom with a competitive Warsaw program.
  16. Gary (Garrett) Fields was a running backs coach at South Bend Adams, served as the interim head coach for Clay 2 years ago, and is the School Resource Officer at Clay as well....He's also the 5th head coach in 5 years at Clay.
  17. @46Sports 41s41 seconds ago Garrett Fields has been named the interim coach for @sbclaycolonials football and is expected to coach the team for the 2018 season
  18. Abby Wahl

    Northridge HS (Middlebury Indiana) Junior - Morgan Litwiller will be joining Abby Wahl at Eastern Illinois after she graduates high school next year. She is on track to compete for Northridge's all time scoring record next year (Senior Brooke McKinley is our current leader). Morgan averaged just under 18 points a game this year (446 points I believe) and should be even higher for her senior year with the departure of McKinley. Morgan led the Northern Lakes Conference and Elkhart County in scoring this year. EIU will have some really good Hoosiers on their team and I look forward to following them at the next level.
  19. Mount Vernon 3A sectional

    Wow! didn't expect to see that one. Up North here in 4A Ft. Wayne South beating defending Champ Homestead was our 1st round shocker (although South Side is an excellent team).
  20. Per the News Sentinel New Haven football coach Jim Rowland has resigned after 17 years as coach. Rowland’s tenure was the current longest streak at one school of any coach in Allen County. He informed his players of his decision today. The Bulldogs were 9-2 last season and 6-1 in the Northeast 8 Conference, tying East Noble and Leo for the championship. New Haven’s season ended with a 13-6 loss to Bishop Dwenger in the sectional semifinals. During his tenure, Rowland led the Bulldogs to four sectional titles and one regional title. He led them to at least seven wins over the last eight seasons. New Haven won 11 games twice, including an 11-1 season in 2016.
  21. Per the SB Tribune Article found here SOUTH BEND — South Bend Community School Corp. tonight could consider a $1.5 million upgrade to School Field that would include the installation of Field Turf as its playing surface. As part of the improvement plan, each of the South Bend Community School Corp. high school football programs would be invited to use the stadium as its home field, according to corporation Athletic Director Seabe Gavin. “It would bring the entire corporation together, bring the entire community together,” Gavin said. “Money is always going to be an obstacle, but let’s use our resources to find a way around those obstacles.” The stadium dates as far back as the 1930s and sits just north of the St. Joseph River along Eddy Street. It is home field to the Adams and Washington high school football teams. Clay currently plays its home games at Clay Intermediate Center and Riley plays its home games at Jackson Intermediate Center. “Every high school in the corporation would be invited to play there,” Gavin said of an upgraded School Field. “We’d put a giant SB at midfield.” The cost of replacing the natural grass surface with artificial Field Turf is estimated at $900,000. The plan does not include replacing the turf of the adjacent soccer field. The corporation also plans to make improvements to School Field’s stadium lighting ($350,000) and substructure ($100,000). According to an attachment to Thursday’s school board agenda, the design and construction costs are being kept separate until funding for the project is identified. The board is set to consider hiring architects and engineers for a variety of summer projects that includes the School Field work, according to district spokeswoman Sue Coney. But is is unclear where the money will come from to pay for the School Field work, she said. If approved, South Bend schools would join a handful of other corporations to make the switch to Field Turf in recent years. Two area schools play on Field Turf. Father Bly Field opened in conjunction with the new private South Bend St. Joseph High School in 2012. Prior to that, St. Joe played many of its home games at School Field. Penn moved from natural grass in 2010 at a cost of $700,000. Of that, $250,000 was raised via private money. The project took just over three months from start to finish. “It was one of the best decisions for our athletic programs, to be able to play regardless of weather,” said former Penn athletic director Ben Karasiak. “It was something our entire community could use. It was something our physical education classes could use. “It worked out well for everything that we wanted to do. It was big.” At School City of Mishawaka, it was a different story. Coming off a runner-up finish in the 2012 Class 4-A state football championship, School City of Mishawaka officials pondered replacing the grass surface of historic Steele Stadium with Field Turf. Cost of the entire project — which also included a new running track and lighting — was $2.2 million. The Field Turf plan eventually fizzled because of financial concerns. School City instead replaced one natural grass surface at Steele Stadium with another in 2017. It held up well enough for the Mishawaka Football League to have its championships played in the stadium last fall. Gavin said that usage is a concern at School Field. In 2017, there were a combined 13 varsity football games at School Field, where Adams and Washington also play its freshman and junior varsity games. “We get a lot of use out of it,” Gavin said. “But by October and November, that field is pretty well trucked up.” He believes that Field Turf at School Field would help teams of South Bend schools be more competitive with perennial state football powers. “If we can have the top-ranked team in the state in boys’ basketball (Riley is currently No. 1 in Class 4-A), why not in football?” Gavin wondered. “You never know what could happen (if) we provide the best possible resources for our kids to succeed.”

    I concur, I was excited when my 3 year old told me he'd been watching ducktales at mammas house, but then when he showed me, it was a huge letdown
  23. 2017 Indiana Hoosiers Mens Basketball

    My 10 year old and I will be surrounded in a sea of green, but that's just fine with me. I really like the direction this Hoosiers team is going, especially in light of the huge loss of Davis.
