Tiger track takes on Avon, Whiteland 5/14


By RICHIE HALL

Sports Reporter

LEBANON -- The Lebanon track team had its hands full Tuesday evening, as it competed in a three-way meet with Avon and Whiteland.

The Orioles were the dominant team of the night, with both the boys and girls teams winning by comfortable margins. The Avon boys scored 89 points to Whiteland's 39.5 and Lebanon's 27.5, while the Avon girls scored 85 to Lebanon's 50 and Whiteland's 21.

Despite the scores, Tiger coach Bob Willhite was happy with the effort his team put forth.

"We did as well as we could do," he said. "The kids gave a great effort."

Two Lebanon boys were double winners. Matt Isenhower took both the 110 hurdles (16.03) and the high jump (6' 4"), and David Martin won both the 100 (11.67) and the 300 hurdles (42.5).

On the girls side, Whitney Hodges took home the 200, with a time of 27.98. Monica Wilhoite finished second in the 3200, breaking the school record by running a time of 12:44.6.

Towards the end of the meet, a ceremony took place to honor the 10 seniors on the Lebanon team: Dustin Baker, Justin Brauchla, Matt Freeman, Isenhower, Aaron Light, Dustin Lukes, Martin, Patrick McDonald, Brad Snead and Ashley Yeadon.

The Tigers will travel to Danville on Friday to compete in the Sagamore Athletic Conference meet. Next week, the IHSAA sectional tournament takes place. The girls will head to Noblesville on Tuesday, while the boys travel to Carmel on May 22.

WeBo softball holds on to beat Lebanon, 6-3 5/9


Stars score six runs in third inning, Tigers make late run.

Sports Reporter

LEBANON -- The Western Boone softball team closed out its first Sagamore sweep Thursday, as it beat Lebanon 6-3.

The Stars scored all of their runs in the third inning. Meanwhile, the Tigers were held scoreless until the final inning, when they grabbed three quick runs.

WeBo went on its third-inning scoring binge by making a series of base hits. Eventually, those hits translated into runs.

In order: Brittany Nicley had 2 RBI, as she sent Amanda Worrell and Alison Elliott in; Emily Moffitt's hit sent Michelle McDole and Nicley in, Whitney Galvin sent Moffitt home, and Shae Chandler's sacrifice fly sent Haley Miller home.

"I was excited that we got the bats going in the third," said WeBo coach Beth Dohogne.

WeBo's ninth batter, pitcher Brittany Smith, didn't get to score. She made her contributions from the mound, tossing six strikeouts, and only allowing two hits in the entire game.

The Tigers did cause some scary moments for the Stars in the seventh inning by scoring three runs.

Stacey Gosewehr and Ashley Kincaid both got on base with singles, while Missy Smith was walked on base. Gosewehr scored by stealing the other three bases. Kincaid got home on an errant ball, and Smith also stole home.

Lebanon coach Doyle Dunshee thought his team played "solid defense" for most of the game. He now wants the Tigers to start playing with more consistency.

"As we get to tournament time, that's what you want," he said.

Lauren Shockley pitched the entire game for Lebanon, tossing three strikeouts.

Both teams are at home on Saturday: The Tigers welcome Danville, while WeBo plays a doubleheader with Hamilton Heights.

Soaring to new heights 5/8


Isenhower nearly breaks record at Tuesday Lebanon track meet.


By RICHIE HALL

Sports Reporter

LEBANON -- After officially winning the high jump during Lebanon's Tuesday three-way track meet, Matt Isenhower kept on competing.

The Tiger senior's opponent? History.

Isenhower had already cleared 6' 4" when his last opponent was eliminated from competition. But he kept on going, eventually setting the bar at 6' 9-1/2," exactly 1/4-inch higher than David Brown's long-standing record. That's where history caught up with him, though, as he missed all three tries.

Should Matt ever break that record, look for a cheering crowd to be on hand. That's exactly what Isenhower likes to hear while he's in the midst of a jump.

"You know what gets me going? It's the crowd," Isenhower said.

Indeed, a not-so-small gathering of Lebanon students, as well as athletes from competitors North Montgomery and Clinton Prairie, clapped and cheered as Isenhower tried his run at history.

Isenhower has competed in the high jump in all of his four years at LHS. Last year, he got as high as 6' 5", before getting injured. This year, he had already cleared 6' 6" coming into Wednesday's meet.

He easily got past 6', 6' 2", and 6' 4," then tied his best mark of the year by clearing 6' 6" . With that ever-important crowd behind him, Isenhower blasted past 6' 7".

Matt missed his first 6' 8" attempt, but nailed it on his second try. The only thing left to do now was try to break the record.

He nearly had the record on his second try, but an errant foot knocked the bar down. Isenhower missed his third attempt, meaning that Brown's mark still stood as the record. For now, anyway.

The six-foot tall Isenhower said that there are quite a few "small things" that go into having a successful career in high jump.

"It's about driving that knee up, (then) using your arms. Then you gotta arch your back."

And yet he can do all that, while his fellow students -- and some competitors -- are clapping and screaming for him.

"I can't do it without them," he said. "I need the motivation. It helps so much."

The IHSAA state tournament qualifying mark is 6' 4" , which means that Isenhower is already jumping at a state level. The state tournament takes place at IUPUI in June, and always attracts many track fans from all over the state.

And with a large crowd, there's no telling what Isenhower could do.
