Pretty impressive that three SWIAC schools (Bloomfield, Linton, North Daviess) won sectional titles over the weekend. Class acts all the way around and good luck to all three next weekend in the regional.

Agreed. SWIAC is a solid small school conference year in and year out. There were 2 other conferences that got 3 sectional titles, but both of them were loaded with 3A's/4A's and privates. ...can't take for granted the good ball we get to watch locally.

First off, hats off to Linton and North Daviess on their regional runs. Both programs have had fantastic runs and winning sectionals are a great accomplishment. Good luck to both teams in the future!

Now to the Bloomfield Cardinals. What a day! I thought we were done for down five with a minute to go in overtime but Brandon Van Sant's 4-point play was as clutch as they come. Of course, we don't get to that point without Eli Combs hitting the three that forces the overtime. In the final, again Van Sant and Combs were dominant and Tindley had no answer. A big credit goes to the Cardinal defense for holding Tindley sophomore stud Eric Hunter to just 14 points.

We're 32 minutes from Indy boys, now do work and let's see what happens next!

I am to its fullest. It takes me back to when I was a teenager in 1998 and 1999. I'm hoping we continue to give our best effort and advance past a solid West Washington team.

I'd like to believe we do, but that's why they play the games. You don't make it to this level without having done something right.

Well we're at the end of the 2015-16 season and what a season it was. Three conference teams won sectional championships and one team advanced to Bankers Life Fieldhouse. This isn't an official look at 2016-17 (that'll come in November) but it's a look at what the future holds for the eight SWIAC schools.

Bloomfield- The Cardinals lost five seniors and their top three scorers from their incredible run to the Class A State Final. The good thing is Bloomfield does return semistate hero Chris Gilmore as well as classmate Luke Vandeventer and Isaac Combs. Those three will help the newcomers learn the ropes and will help Matt Britton's bunch be a pleasant surprise in 2017.

Clay City- The Eels run of dominance ended after falling to Bloomfield in the sectional. CC graduated Hunter Wolfe and Noah Denker among others, but do return Brenan Walker. It'll be interesting to see how Vance rebuilds this team.

Eastern Greene- Jon Neill led the T-Birds to a 16-win season in 2016. They return exciting players Caleb Hamilton, Jeff Graham, and Ethan Helton. If Graham stays healthy, EG could challenge for a sectional title.

Linton- The Miners good fortune led them to a 4th straight sectional title, but were hit hard by graduation. The good news is Josh Dieball is back for his senior year and will receive help from a 20-0 JV. There may be an early bump or two, but Linton should be a solid team once again.

North Central- The T-Birds look to be behind the 8-ball after losing Gavin Stanifer to graduation. JC Childs does return, but NC may struggle often.

North Daviess- Brent Dalrymple has a strong cast returning from last year's sectional champion. The Cougars did lose big man Shannon Chesterfield, but guys like Jaylen Lengacher and Cody Phillips should put ND in position to repeat as sectional champion and a high spot in SWIAC.

Shakamak- JB Neill slowly is turning the Lakers around. They won 12 games last year and return the bulk of their scoring, especially sharpshooter Tanner Yeryar. Shakamak should challenge Bloomfield for the sectional title next March if improvements continue.

WRV- The Wolverines are short and like NC are behind the 8-ball. They are replacing not only Hunter Cornelius and Tyler York, but coach Joe Pigg as well. Whoever takes over will have to depend on Brayton Cornelius and a cast of unknowns to get the job done.

Have a great spring/summer everyone!
