8 is enough: Wood's punt return helps RHS end 13-game grid losing streak
FOOTBALL

WABASH -- Rochester's 13-game football nightmare is over.

Corbyn Wood shook off cramps that forced him from the game earlier to return a punt 42 yards for a touchdown with 9:45 left and give the Zebras an 8-0 win over Wabash Friday.

The win was RHS' first since a 17-10 win over Tippecanoe Valley on Oct. 2, 2015. They lost their last three games of that season and lost all 10 by an average margin of 38 points last season.

The win was also Brian Hooker's first in his first game as Zebra coach.

Ironically, moments before the RHS-Wabash game went final, North Miami polished off Maconaquah 16-6 in Denver to give coach Joe Grant his first win as a varsity coach. Grant coached RHS last year before resigning in June and taking the North Miami job.

Despite knee pain, RHS' Adley scores twice in boys soccer win over Caston
BOYS SOCCER

RHS 4, Caston 1

FULTON - Rochester boys soccer player Trey Adley's knee hurts a lot. Out of the 160 minutes the team has played through two games this week, he's played in less than half of them.

But when he has been on the pitch, he's helped the Zebras to a 2-0 record.

Adley scored twice against Caston on Thursday to give RHS a 4-1 win. Skylar Razer scored on a rebound, and Alex Andrianov scored the only goal of the second half on a direct kick set piece assist from Will Thonn.

Bryan Hernandez scored the lone Caston goal with 34:27 left in the first half, but that was the only goal Dalton Heishman allowed in his first career start in goal.

RHS coach Trevor Brown was unimpressed with his team and added that Caston and coach Narciso Sanchez were more prepared.

"Honestly, the first 34 minutes, they were by far the better team," Brown said. "They outpossessed us. They had better opportunities. They were more cohesive. Tons and tons of credit to coach Sanchez. I'm always amazed at how much he maximizes his talent. Just a lot of respect for him. ... I don't know how much we deserved it, but we'll take it."

Lily blooms: Lady Zs rely on frosh, Sailors to win 5-game epic
VOLLEYBALL

ROYAL CENTER - Lily Cashen is a 13-year-old freshman on the Rochester volleyball team. She had been waiting much of her life for her first match on the varsity.

And she might have a hard time topping what happened in that first match.

Cashen came up with the final two kills of the match to lead RHS to a 19-25, 25-15, 26-28, 25-21, 22-20 win over Pioneer in their season opener Wednesday.

It was a roiling, sweaty, intense yet friendly match - RHS coach Erin Cashen and Pioneer coach Rod Nies were spotted giving each other a high-five afterwards - that took nearly two hours to complete.

RHS had four game points in Game 3 but then came back to win Games 4 and even the match.

Will Thonn and Kaleb Haimes added one assist each. Adley's goal came on a penalty kick.

Harrison Herrell was the victorious goalkeeper in his first career start in net.

Moriarty: 'We were in shape'
Football

Hired in January, Tippecanoe Valley football coach Stephen Moriarty stressed conditioning to his team during the offseason. That emphasis might have paid off during the team's scrimmage against visiting Warsaw Friday.

"I think our physicality," Moriarty said when asked what he liked from what he saw. "We were in shape. We had two goals going into two-a-days and throughout the summer: Nobody's going to outhit us, and we were going to be in the best shape no matter who we play. And I think we proved those things tonight."

Moriarty said he would give the defense a C-plus for its defensive discipline, saying there were a "couple breaks" but that those would be worked on in practice.

Bickle leads with 56, but RHS falls in first trip to Stonehenge
GIRLS GOLF

WINONA LAKE - The Rochester girls golf team's match against Triton and Warsaw at Stonehenge Golf Club Thursday really wasn't about Triton or Warsaw, according to RHS coach Chad Thomas.

Rather, it was about Stonehenge. RHS will travel there again on Sept. 16 for the sectional. This was about getting accustomed to the course. RHS' runs' to the state finals in 2012 and 2013 started at Stonehenge. To Thomas, course familiarity is key.

Warsaw wound up winning with a 203. Triton had a 218, and RHS had a 245. The Lady Zs' score was 18 shots lower than their score on their home course at Round Barn Golf Club at Mill Creek against Wabash Wednesday.

Bickle shoots 57, but Wabash spoils Lady Zs' home opener
GIRLS GOLF

The Rochester girls golf team has had three different low scorers in their three matches. That hasn't added up to any wins yet.

Renae Bickle led RHS with a 57 in their home opener, but Wabash pulled out a 228-263 win on the front nine at Round Barn Golf Club at Mill Creek Wednesday.

Ashlyn Foster had a 66, Ashleigh Navarro had a 69, Maddie Henning had a 71, and Marley Strasser had a 77 for RHS, who fell to 0-2.

"She hit the ball much more consistently," RHS coach Chad Thomas said of Bickle. "She had some really good drives off the tee and put together one of her better rounds so far this year."

As Lady Z golfers go back to basics, Pioneer wins by 2 shots
GIRLS GOLF

STAR CITY - The Kinley Lingenfelter era of Rochester girls golf is over, and with that, coach Chad Thomas has a dilemma.

He doesn't know who his No. 1 player is.

Thomas acknowledged that might be something that changes from match to match after Pioneer beat the visiting Lady Zs 241-243 at Pond View Golf Course Tuesday.

With each team agreeing to play six on the varsity with the top two scores being dropped, Maddie Henning, RHS' No. 6 player, carded a 58 and was the low RHS player.

Henning's score forced Pioneer's No. 6, Brianna Schmaltz to come in with a 70 or better for the win. Schmaltz had a 69.

No Sawyer, no Towne, but RHS sets high goals
VOLLEYBALL

Anybody attending the Rochester volleyball scrimmage as part of RHS' second annual Fall Sports Night couldn't help but notice two things.

First, only team manager Evan Cashen served the ball. Second, Cashen serves the ball hard.

This shows coach Erin Cashen's priorities one week into practice and 12 days before the season opener against Pioneer. Serve-receive comes first.

Parseghian's optimism made him success
"Notre Dame will rise again. From these ashes will come the winning Notre Dame team."

Ara Parseghian said this. Actually, he said it twice.

He said it after the 1973 Orange Bowl. Parseghian was still the coach at Notre Dame, and the Irish had just lost to Nebraska 40-6. The next season, Notre Dame went undefeated and won the national championship.

He also said it after Notre Dame lost to Miami 58-7 in 1985. By this time, Parseghian was retired from coaching and working for CBS as a color commentator, and Miami squashed the Irish like a bug in Gerry Faust's final game as Notre Dame coach.

New coach Allen wants IU to 'Love Each Other'
COLLEGE FOOTBALL

BLOOMINGTON, Ind. (AP) - Tom Allen is already putting his stamp on Indiana football.

The first-year coach has installed a new offense, instilled a different attitude and created a more player-friendly environment as practice begins this week.

Sure, the softer approach that might make some old-school coaches wince, but the Hoosiers have embraced Allen's style after watching it work wonders for the defense last season.

NCAA ruling forces adjustments
FOOTBALL

The two-a-day football practices that coaches once used to toughen up their teams and cram for the start of the season are going the way of tear-away jerseys and the wishbone formation.

As part of its efforts to increase safety, the NCAA approved a plan this year that prevents teams from holding multiple practices with contact in a single day.

The move has forced plenty of schools to alter their practice calendar, with many teams opening their preseason as early as this week. Officials don't mind if it causes a few logistical headaches as long as it reduces the head injuries that had become all too common this time of year.

Crazy 8th: Cards score 9 off Cubs' pen
MLB

Cardinals 11, Cubs 4

CHICAGO (AP) - For 11 straight batters in the eighth inning, the St. Louis Cardinals were unstoppable.

It was an emphatic response to a heartbreaking loss.

Paul DeJong hit a tiebreaking two-run double in St. Louis' highest-scoring inning of the season, and the Cardinals cooled off the Chicago Cubs with an 11-4 victory on Friday.

Chicago carried a 3-2 lead into the eighth, looking for its seventh consecutive win. But St. Louis' first 11 batters reached in its biggest inning since it scored nine in the eighth against the Cubs on Aug. 30, 2014, at Busch Stadium. The Cardinals made the most of a combined six walks by three relievers while improving to 4-4 since the All-Star break.

Slocum is Caston's third coach since the beginning of June. Brady Jones resigned after two seasons as coach. Brian Hooker, who was hired as an interim coach for the season to replace Jones on June 20, resigned on June 28 to take the Rochester head coaching job.
