    First district ranking table tennis: Aneeha wins sub-junior girls title

    Second seed Aneeha D'souza won the sub-junior girls title in the season's first district ranking table tennis tournament at Sharda Centre on Thursday. Surprisingly top seed Pritha Vartikar's challenge came to an end in the semi-finals.

With this win, Radhika put herself in line for a double crown, as she had already won the cadet girls title on Wednesday. In the summit clash, Radhika started well by winning the first game 11-8, but Aneeha levelled the score with a hard-fought 12-10 win in the second.

    Late own goal sinks Viewmont in thrilling 5A soccer championship game

    SANDY — For 20 minutes after the goal — the final goal, the one that so cruelly ended the Viewmont Vikings' season — Preston Pitt sat on the pitch halfway between the goal and midfield. His hair was wet, his face was drenched with sweat and bore the look of stunned disbelief. Stunned disbelief describes the Alta players' reactions when they scored the golden goal to beat Viewmont 2-1 in the 5A state soccer title game Thursday at Rio Tinto Stadium. That's because it was an own goal during extra time, scored off a throw-in that clattered around in the box before ricocheting off a Viking defender and in. “It sucks, but I'm always going to have my brothers backing me up, it's just unfortunate,” Pitt

It's the fifth-straight year Mitty advanced to the last day of the season at PAL Stadium in San Jose. “It's an expectation every year,” said Mitty coach Joe Gron, whose team has lost only once in the postseason since 2011. “From the beginning, that's our ultimate goal. … It's to win a championship and get another banner up on the fence.” The eighth-seeded Monarchs (19-7) earned

    Despite upset loss in long jump, Guerendo keeps Avon on track for state title

    Isaac Guerendo of Avon wins the 200 meters at the Lafayette Regional.

    HS baseball sectional: New Palestine's walk-off win sends Lawrence North home

    Jacob Garrison was admittedly skeptical when he stepped to the plate in the bottom of the seventh inning Thursday night. This was the moment most kids dream of – Garrison included – but he had been mired in a slump. Three weeks ago, in a game against Fishers, Garrison was hit in the head by a pitch and suffered a concussion. Since his return, he had just two hits in 16 at-bats. “My swing has been messed up,” Garrison said. But all this moment called for was a flyball. That is what Garrison, a left-handed hitting first baseman kept telling himself on the way to the plate. His New Palestine team trailed Lawrence North by one run with the bases loaded and one out in a win-or-go-home Class 4A Sectional
