Riverfield leads top THB sports stories of 2012


ANDERSON, Ind. — No. 3 — AHS’ Morgan Nadaline continues to shine

ANDERSON — The Anderson High School junior made her third consecutive IHSAA state finals appearance this fall after claiming the Indiana Golf Association’s Girls Junior state championship over the summer. Nadaline also earned her second straight honor as the IGA’s Girls Junior Golfer of the Year.

No. 4 — A boys basketball season for the ages

Frankton and Liberty Christian won sectional championships for the first time in school history, and Pendleton Heights ended the regular season ranked No. 2 in Class 4A. All three teams eventually fell on the same Saturday in the regional round, but the fun wasn’t quite done. PH’s Kellen Dunham was named to the Indiana All-Star team, played in an exhibition game on his home court and helped sweep Kentucky in the annual series.

No. 5 — AU softball riding high

ANDERSON — The Ravens posted a 32-12 overall record and made their second straight trip to the NCAA Div. III Regionals. But the most impressive aspect of the campaign was Anderson’s complete domination of the Heartland Collegiate Athletic Conference. AU rolled to the regular season and tournament titles without missing a single game.

No. 6 — Bill Stoudt calls it a career

PENDLETON — The county lost an institution during the summer when Stoudt stepped down as the baseball coach at Pendleton Heights. In 32 years at the Arabians’ helm, he won 654 games (the eighth-most in state history), 14 sectional titles and 13 conference crowns. Stoudt also coached 17 all-state selections and 16 Indiana All-Stars at PH. The field at the high school will be renamed in his honor, and he’ll be replaced by one of his former players — former Greenfield-Central coach Travis Keesling.

No. 7 — Sammy Mireles does 2K times 2

ELWOOD — The Elwood junior running back rushed for 2,460 yards to help lead the Panthers to a Central Indiana Conference title. It was the second straight season over 2,000 yards for Mireles, who has gained 4,531 yards in the past two years and 5,391 in his three-year varsity career. He’ll enter 2013 needing 2,170 yards to surpass the state’s career rushing record, set by Cathedral’s Otis Shannon from 1997 to 2000.
