HIGH SCHOOL FOOTBALL PREVIEW

The high school football season begins tonight. Here is a brief look at the Monroe County schools:

 

Bloomington North High School

Head Coach: Scott Bless – 10th year at North

 

Projected Offense:

QB Jack Smith

TB Cameron Morgan/Delvon Wilson

WR Drew Ludwig

WR Alex Richardson

WR John Earl Rochell-Manns

TE Logan Calvin

C Tony McKnight

RG David Hobbs

LG Ty Stephenson

RT Tenzin Norbu

LT Sean Murphy

 

Projected Defense:

NT Rick Rhodenbaugh

DE Lane Stagnolia

DE Kaleb Brewer

MLB Devin Green

OLB Gerrit Jan Heitink

OLB Jack Buergler

ROV Holden Jastermski

CB Issac Brashear-Powell

CB Abdurahim Shahrani

SS Tyson Bennett

FS Henry Street.

 

The Cougars are poised for a big offensive season to follow up their successful 2013 sectional championship season. Junior Jack Smith is back and he has some talented receivers at his disposal.

Alex Richardson is a speed demon and Drew Ludwig, with his height and athleticism, makes for a difficult match up for defensive backs. John Earl Rochell-Manns showed strong potential last year and will likely live up to it as a junior.

Cameron Morgan will get the nod at running back to start the season. The offensive line is sizeable and should give the running game, as well as the passing game plenty of room to do their work.

Defensively, the Cougars are very athletic and strong with Rhodenbaugh and Stagnolia returning. In addition, the line backing corps should complement the front line quite nicely with tackle-magnet Devin Green in the middle. The defensive backfield is quick with the likes of Holden Jastremski, Tyson Bennett and Henry Street.

North opens at defending state champion Columbus East, but should be in this game as well as most of the games on their schedule.

North will give their opponents trouble with their speed and overall offensive skills, especially with the passing game.

Predicted Regular Season record: 6-3


Bloomington High School South

Head Coach: Myron (Mo) Moriarity – 17th year at South

Projected Offense:

QB Carson Lien/Bryce Stancombe

RB Marquise Holt

WR Keenan Franz

WR Richard Williams

WR Chase Daab

TE Logan Kirby

LT Mark Nussbaum

LG Mason Chandler

C Adam Brinegar

RG Henry Niswander

RT Kamran Beitvashahi

 

Projected Defense:

DE Tyler Richardson
NT Devin Buchtman
DE Ryan Freeman
LB Jacob Milhouse
LB Dillon Trimble
LB Tommy Richardson
LB Devin Cannon
CB Thomas Henderson
CB Alex Frey
S Luke Barrow
S Zach Pedersen

Bloomington South comes off of a 4-7 record in Head Coach Mo Moriarity’s return to Bloomington.

The Panthers started slowly, but the Panthers started picking up the new system and after a few injuries forced some position changes, things started clicking. This was obvious in the drubbing of Martinsville in the sectionals (after Martinsville handed South an early season defeat 60-14).

South’s reliance on their passing game may have to wait a few games while Bryce Stancombe nurses a back injury. Carson Lien will be under Center to start the season and primary target Keenan Franz may have to work a little harder to get the ball.

Lien is a strong athlete, but the passing game may be less effective until Stancombe can return. Defensively, the Panthers are very quick and aggressive. With players like Jacob Milhouse, Tommy Richardson, Thomas Henderson and Zach Pedersen roaming around in the secondary, opposing receivers will have a hard time catching and holding on to the ball.

South hosts Bedford North Lawrence to open the season, and should have little problem starting out 1-0.

With South’s defense and the pending return of primary quarterback, Stancombe coming back to hit his very capable targets, South should be able to put together a winning campaign and be primed for a deeper run into the post-season.

Predicted Regular Season record: 5-4

 

Edgewood High School

Head Coach: Jerry Bland – 8th year at Edgewood

Projected Offense:

QB Zack Harrison

RB Gabe Koontz

WR Blair Boruff

WR Austin Smith

WR Terry Weiss

WR Sam Jeatran

RT Brandon Fleener

RG Cade Feather

C Zack Wagner

LG Cody Gaunt

LT Brayden Patton

 

Projected Defense:

DE Ty Robinson

NT Brandon Fleener

DE Jake West

LB Alex Pittsford

LB Caleb Douglas

LB Gabe Koontz

LB Eli Housel

LB Caden Moore

CB Terry Weiss

CB Austin Smith

S Rhett Blake
 

Edgewood caught fire at the end of last season, winning three of its last four games and that was without their starting quarterback, Zach Harrison who went down in early with a knee injury.

Edgewood is a very athletic team with Harrison and Koontz in the backfield. Austin Smith and Blair Boruff are two of the fastest receivers in the south central Indiana.

With its line being as big and strong as it is, it should open up plenty of holes for both Harrison and Koontz.

Some of the offensive Mustangs will get a defensive assignment, as well. Koontz and Brandon Fleener will play up the middle and receivers Terry Weiss and Austin Smith will make up part of the defensive backfield, along with super-fast Rhett Blake

Many of the Mustangs are now juniors and seniors, so they are a year wiser, a year quicker and a year more physically mature than last, which will make their opponents suffer at their hands.

Predicted Regular Season record: 6-3

HIGH SCHOOL GIRL'S SOCCER PREVIEW

The girls’ soccer teams started competition this week. Here are names to watch with our Monroe County teams and around our listening area:

 

Edgewood High School

Head Coach Mike Hawkins’ 2013 team had a quick exit from post-season play and the Red Nation will be hoping that his team can improve on their regular season and post-season play. The offense will be anchored by sophomore Amber Vercrumba, who was a top scoring freshman last season with nine goals. Joining her on the offensive attack will be midfielders Carly Bennett, Miranda Drake, Isla Weber and forward Jade Ford.
Senior Brynn Bosstick will team with fellow seniors Allison Deckard and Brooke Hash, junior Jordan Howell and sophomore Serenah Morris to head up the defensive unit in front of sophomore goalkeeper Emily Jones.
 

Bloomington High School South

Last year’s sectional title team lost a decent amount of firepower, but the returnees will give the Panthers a good shot at repeating.

Coach Ian Rickerby has six seniors to lead the way, including perhaps the best offensive player in the area, Victoria Fosha, who last year had a career best 13 goals. She has already gotten off to a good start, scoring three times in South’s season opener on Monday.

Joining Fosha are fellow seniors Miya Nourie, Julia Herrmann, Anna Cron, Tasha Lim and goalkeeper and Co-Captain Abby Smith.

In addition to the seniors, Rickerby’s squad includes juniors Ashley Kellar, Co-Captain Sabrina Morrison and Maddy Smith.

Underclassmen Julia Wood, Sophie Keller, Reagan Knorr and Senna Hendricks all made contributions in the opener and figure to be integral to the team’s success as the season progresses.

 

Bloomington High School North

After a regional championship in 2012, the Lady Cougars will be looking to get back to the top of the heap after losing in the sectional final to South last year.
Coach Tony Starks’ team will be ready to take a shot at getting back on top.
Senior scoring machine, forward Meghan Martin will lead the attack with fellow senior Brooke Collins and juniors Kylee Henderson, Maria Gonzalez-Diaz and Nicole Ortiz and sophomore Dee Boado.
Seniors Stephanie Haddad and Katie Nicholson will be heading up the defensive unit along with junior Abbie Miller.
The goalkeeper position was shared in the first match by sophomore Zoie Ramsey and junior Taylor Van Pelt.
 

Other Teams/Names to Watch

Bedford North Lawrence High School – Kat Emery, sophomore. Scored 11 goals as a freshman in 2013.

Brown County High School – Rachel Smith, junior. Scored 18 goals as a sophomore in 2013.
Owen Valley High School – Hannah Miller, sophomore. Scored 9 goals as a freshman in 2013.

 

HIGH SCHOOL BOY'S SOCCER PREVIEW

The boys’ soccer teams start competition this week. Here are names to watch with teams in the listening area:

 

Bloomington High School South

Bloomington South Head Coach Kevin Sparks has returning starters Benji Ipsen, Calvin Anderson, Cameron McClaine, Andres Hernandez-Jimenez, Deo Moore and goalkeeper Ryan Yohn from the 2013 Sectional Champion team.
In addition, others competing for playing time are Antonio Alicea, John Bannec, Jason Cherry, Alex Clark, Javier Fuentes-Rower, Nate Sapal, Al Wells and Aldridge Zajmi
With the experience and talent that South has coming back, they should be a very tough opponent.
 

Edgewood High School

Though they graduated more than a dozen from last season, Edgewood’s team will still dress up to eight seniors for varsity. Unfortunately, it will be really hard to replace the kind of players like Colton Bennett and Brandon Altop and the returnees haven’t necessarily put in a lot of varsity minutes to this point for Coach Carl Salzmann.

The senior group includes Levi Beyers, Michael Allender, Tad Carter, Adam Craig and Chris (Mooch) Hamric.

Carter is slated to be the starting goalkeeper with Beyers as a Midfielder and Allender at Forward.

Juniors include Victor Burrell and James Koontz and sophomore Harrison Cottingham should contribute heavily to this team.

 

Bloomington High School North

New head coach Galen Cassady has returning starters Jacob Cantrell, Alex Derenchuk, Reed Geiger and Zach Veldman

In addition, Diego Fierst-Garcia, Andrew Moore, Colin Slaughter and Kemal Silay, along with sophomores Luke Domer and Yacob Wells will be on the pitch often along with goalkeeper Michael Buck.

 

Lighthouse Christian Academy

New head coach Michael Sanderson won’t have much experience to work with.

Juniors Joel Huck, Jonathan Dejong and Noah Stinson will provide offense. Sophomore Nick Kulp will be a key defensive player and Dalton Smith will be in the net.

 

HIGH SCHOOL VOLLEYBALL PREVIEW

The high school volleyball season is underway. Here is a brief look at the Monroe County schools and some other teams in our listening area:

Edgewood High School

The Mustangs have a new coach, though it’s a familiar face for the program. Sam Jones, who previously had been assistant under Jeff Carmichael now holds the reigns to the Mustangs’ volleyball program.

Jones will rely on the help of some potential leaders in the five seniors he has coming back. He says, “I definitely have to rely on my five seniors to take charge this year and show my younger girls what it takes to be successful on the court.” His senior cast consists of Mady Miller, who is a four-year starter, Megan Judge, Ireland Butcher,Hanna Jones and Autum Loughead.

Other names to watch for to make the rotation are junior Jessica Steinmetz and sophomores Kendall Souder, Ella Morris and Abby Brinegar.

He expects his serving to be tough, but with a smaller, shorter team than in years’ past, Jones sees his group having to rely on the defensive part of the game to help win more matches. “Being a smaller team, we are going to have to pressure teams by serving zones accurately and then playing really scrappy defense”, he says.

As far as Jones’ expectations go, “our goals are to start out strong in conference and then continue our growth until hopefully peakingin October. We will take our lumps at times, but you grow more in playing a tough team and losing than you do playing a weak team and winning.” 

 

Bloomington High School South

Bloomington South coach Eugene Kim lost a strong leader in Jacqueline Forney to graduation. He sees this year’s leadership coming from a collective group effort from the returning players. “We have some kids who will be the physical leaders others will lead emotionally and others vocally. I think the group will step up and get the job done together.”
Kim’s squad is athletic again this year that is top heavy with senior varsity experience, including returning starters Abby Boatman, Brie Blume, Dominique Davis and Rachel Farrar. Other seniors on the squad include Megan Couch, Claire Dennis and Christina Elliott. Farrar is the new setter and Kim andhis staff like what they see. Says Kim, “she has looked fantastic in that position this year! The girls and staff have full confidence in her ability to get the job done.”

In addition to the seniors, South has juniors Ashlynn Fox and Emily Ehman and sophomores Madzia Iannello and Sam Mehay back. There are also a host of other juniors who may break into the lineup at some point sooner than later.
Kim sees the biggest improvements in South’s squad as continuing to understand another year in the system and its maturity. He has been impressed with their level of learning and the way they've approached practices.
His expectations for this year? “Execute at as high of a level possible, play to our potential and see where that lands us.” 


Lighthouse Christian Academy

Lighthouse ended the regular season with a 12-5 in 2013 and Coach Beth May lost three seniors from that team in Rachel Campbell, Bethie Johnson and Maggie Holdeman. However, she sees that with this year’s team, a little confidence will go a long way in getting her team kick started. “We are a young team, and I think one thing we need is a little confidence. That will come with more game experience and when we get some wins under our belts. Also, we have a great group of up and comers that are really getting the job done. Grace Holdeman, Hannah Whitney and Ariel Cosens have shown great leadership on and off the court”, says May.

Cosens, a senior is one of Lighthouse’s strongest assets in the middle hitter position. Junior Myra Engel will break into the starting rotation as an outside hitter. Junior Hannah Whitney is back and sophomore Grace Holdeman will share setter duties with freshman Shoshi Johnson.

May sees great potential with her team and knows that the effort will be there. She says, “I stress communication, teamwork, dedication AND hard work on the court. We have a great group of girls leading the team and I expect that we go in to a match and give everything we have and leave it all on the court!  That's all they can do!”

 

Bloomington High School North

Bloomington North also has a new coach, Klaus Haagen who will have some experience coming back from a team that took its lumps (11-21 record) last year.
Expect this team to be improved though, after a summer of conditioning and another year of experience under their belts.

A senior class makes up the biggest part of this group led by Alivia Coon. Other seniors returning are Allison Donham, Sari Kamen, Katie Galbreath and Katherine Ramage. Other varsity members include Elle Costello, Jessica Dunlap, Allie Beams and two sophomores, Haley Stultz and Bri Blandford.

HIGH SCHOOL BOY'S TENNIS PREVIEW

The boys’ tennis teams start competition today. Here is a brief look at the teams in our listening area:

 

Bloomington High School South

Bloomington South has a strong returning group who went to the regional championship last year. Head coach Ben Doan is in his second season after taking over for long-time coach Joe Doyle last year and his squad may very well be able to return to that regional championship and go even further.

 

The top two singles players are likely to be junior Will Piekarsky, who returns at No.1 and Jake Frederickson (a senior) at No. 2.


Junior Rich Huang and sophomore Eric Johnsen are the likely No. 1 doubles team.


Junior Conrad Schlegel, sophomore Nathan Pliske and freshman Konner Shapiro will most likely make up the balance of the lineup at No. 3 and No.2 doubles.
 

Bloomington High School North

Bloomington North’s team has some experience coming back from a sectional finals team.
Coach Ken Hydinger’s team will likely haveeither sophomore Scott Bode (last year’s No. 3 singles) or senior Jake Barrett at No. 1 singles. The other singles spot will possibly be senior Charlie Ryan.


Juniors Ben Chapman and Jory Shoup will likely become the No. 1 doubles team with Barrett and Ryan moving to singles. Freshmen Paul Dzuby and Mak Rogers have a good shot at moving into the lineup in the No. 2 doubles spot.
 

Edgewood High School

Edgewood’s squad is senior heavy, with Mitch Williamson likely taking the No. 1 singles position.

 

Chris Wever is the likely No. 2 and Freshman Austin Hammond will move into the No. 3 singles spot.

 

Coach Doug Uhls’ three other seniors are Trevor Moore, Andy Craig and Ryan Braunlin. Moore and Craig will start the season as the No. 1 doubles team. Braunlin will pair with freshmen Tyler Lunn at 2 doubles position.

HIGH SCHOOL GIRL'S GOLF PREVIEW

The fall high school sports season is underway with girls’ golf teams starting competition this week. Here is a brief look at some of the teams in our listening area:

 

Bloomington High School North

With the exception of graduating senior Abbey Barker, Coach Brian Muehlhaus has everyone back from last year’s team, including two freshmen. According to Muehlhaus, “We do have some depth, which we haven’t had in a long time. We have a lot of girls that all post similar scores, so it is possible that 7 or 8 will be competing for the top five.”
North’s roster includes lone senior Morgan EuDaly, juniors Lauren Lewis, Vanessa Rush, Ellen Scheid and Jie-En Wu and sophomores Kaleena Abraham and Kourtney Grimes. In addition, freshmen Kate Jones and Lauren Stallsmith will get their shot at breaking into the rotation.
Muehlhaus sees his team’s biggest challenge as consistency, making sure that they are do all things well and often and playing smart golf and while it’s too early to tell, “the goal is to play well in the conference tournament and advance to the regionals.

 

Bloomington High School South

New Head Coach Brian Carver takes over for retired Frank Wintin and steps into a good situation.

South lost one player to graduation (Hallie Pedersen), but returns a solid roster with strong experience.

There are high expectations for a team that brings back four varsity players, including state participants Cherise Otter and Emma Fisher, both juniors. Says Carver, “It’s nice having two girls who want to play golf in college, but I believe since last year our team has grown and the girls wanted to get better at golf. They have put in a lot of time throughout the summer. All of the girls play other sports, I have some great athletes, so I do not worry about them being competitive. Sometimes I have to calm them down because they get mad because they hit a bad shot. I love that about this team.”  

Carver sees Otter and Fisher will stepping up and being leaders this year, with fellow juniors, twin sisters Cydney and Lyndsey Bomba also stepping up. Sophomores Betsy Beggs and Lydia Quinn will be battling it out for the spot.  They have seven new girls on this team

“We have put a lot of time in throughout the summer and are very excited for the season to start.  We are going to take one match/invitational at a time,” says Carver.  “We want to win Conference Indiana, Sectionals, Regionals.  We talk about making it to state as a team!  That is the ultimate goal.  Make it to state and see what happens.  We just want a chance.”

 

Edgewood High School

Like Bloomington North, Edgewood’s team has varsity experience returning, and with only one senior (Sami Roberts) carrying the brunt of the leadership role, coach Missy Ringler’s squad is looking to make further strides in improving their game and performing better at the conference meet and advancing farther in post season play.

Roberts will be joined by juniors Claire Schapker, Molly McClellan, Molly Swindle, Carleigh Helms and sophomore Megan Higgins. Freshman Jen Newman will also try and crack the lineup.
