Boys Basketball

The boys traveled to Center Grove the first Friday of the month. The Cards lost by 9 but there were some bright spots. Ed Schott had a hot hand in the 2nd quarter with four three point field goals. Dut Mabok had his best overall game with 8 points, 9 rebounds, and 7 blocks.

The next day, Ben Davis visited the Fieldhouse. It was a tough game for the Cardinals as the Giants hit nearly everything they fired towards the rim. This was also the evening that former cross country state championship teams came to honor Coach Tom Hathaway and his wife Jane.

The following weekend the team traveled to Bloomington South. After a slow start, the Cards got settled in and made this a good game. The Panther lead was trimmed to four in the 3rd quarter but the Cards eventually dropped this one.

During the Forum Tipoff Classic, the Cards hosted South Bend Riley. This game was close throughout with several lead changes. Late in the third quarter Riley took the lead for good. The Cards lost 51-61. Harold Bennett had 17 points and Blake Evans finished with 14.

The Cards traveled to Bloomington North on the 16th. A sluggish start led to a road loss in this contest.

On the 23rd, Cardinal Ritter visited the Fiedlhouse. The Cards played hard. Ryan Lezon made the most of his first varsity start. Blake Evans and Brevin Jefferson led the way with 14 and 12 points respectively. The Cards came away with the win, 54-53.

Also this month, Dut Mabok signed his national letter of intent to play college basketball at Ancilla Collge in northern Indiana.

Girls Basketball

The girls hosted Bloomington North on the first Friday of the month. The team had a balanced attack as four Cards were in double figures. The girls won 73-38 against a conference opponent. This was also IGHL Night where the youth teams were honored.

The girls played Roncalli in the first round of the Marion County tournament. They lost this one. Jaelencia Williams had a big game of 24 points and 13 rebounds. Lindsay Freije played well defensively, shutting down Roncalli's best shooter.

The girls then hosted Ben Davis. They dropped a hard fought game by seven points, 52-59.

The Cards traveled to Franklin Central to take on the Flashes. They came away with a three point victory. Emma DeHart scored 24 and Andrea Vidaurre chipped in 12. Jaelencia Williams had a double double with 10 points and 10 rebounds.

The girls also played Arsenal Tech in the Fieldhouse. Everyone contributed to this team victory. Emma DeHart and Lexie Green led the way in the score book.

To round out the month, the Cards traveled to East Central to participate in their holiday tournament. The girls had games over two days and came away with the championship trophy.

Right now their record sits at 10-4.

Boys & Girls Swimming & Diving

The boy's and girl's swim teams have caused lots of waves in the pool this month. Aside from hosting the Cardinal Classic, they have also hosted Cathedral and Whiteland, then traveled to the IU Natatorium to compete in the County meet, and to Perry Meridian for the Falcon Invite.

At the Cardinal Classic, swimmers Fritz Laut, Drew Renike, Drew Shellenberger, and Jake Hemphill placed first in the 200 Medley Relay. Reinke also placed first in the 200 freestlye and 100 butterfly. Laut placed first in the 200 individual medley. Shellenberger placed first in the 500 freestyle. Elizabeth Lamkin placed first in the 100 breaststroke.
