IHSAA announces new volleyball sectional alignments
By: Rob Connett
, 6/26/17
Some local volleyball teams might face different competition when it comes the 2017 postseason, as the Indiana High School Athletic Association released new sectional alignments for 2017-18 and 2018-19.
The biggest change comes at Class 1A, where Shawe Memorial will remain in Sectional 62, but their normal sectional opponents were shifted to different sites. Christian Academy, who has made back-to-back state championship appearances, will move up to Class 2A due to the IHSAA Success Factor. Every other team that was in Sectional 62 with Shawe, will now be in Sectional 61. Those teams being Borden, Lanesville, New Washington, Rock Creek, and South Central. Shawe fell to New Washington in the Sectional semi-finals in 2016.
The Lady Hilltoppers will now see new Sectional opponents in Sectional 62, which will be hosted by Edinburgh in 2017. Along with Edinburgh, Crothersville, Medora, Trinity Lutheran, and West Washington will also be in Sectional 62.

Class 1A Sectional 60 will stay the same for Jac-Cen-Del and Rising Sun, along with Hauser, Oldenburg, South Decatur, Southwestern Shelbyville, and Waldron.

In Class 2A, Sectional 45 will remain unchanged with Austin, Milan, North Decatur, South Ripley, Southwestern, and Switzerland County. The Lady Raiders, who beat Southwestern in four sets for the 2016 title, will host the Sectional in 2017 and 2018.

In Class 3A, Madison will stay in Sectional 29. The Lady Cubs will be grouped once again with Batesville, Greensburg, Lawrenceburg, Rushville, South Dearborn, and host Franklin County.
Class 3A Sectional 30 will also have the same teams -- Brownstown Central, Charlestown, Corydon Central, North Harrison, Salem, Scottsburg, and Silver Creek. Charlestown will host.

Another big change occurs in Class 4A, Sectional 15. Bedford North Lawrence, Floyd Central, Jeffersonville, Jennings County, New Albany, and Seymour will welcome in Providence. The Lady Pioneers move up another class due to the IHSAA Success Factor, after making their 5th straight state finals appearance in 2016. Providence claimed two state championships ('13 and '14) and one runner-up ('12) in 2A, followed by a state championship ('15) and a runner-up ('16) in 3A.

The 2017 IHSAA Volleyball season begins in August.

Hanover names Braden as new swim coach
By: Hanover College Athletics, 6/26/17

The Hanover College Athletic Department has announce Blake Braden to lead the men’s and women’s swim programs.

The announcement was made back in April that the Hanover College Athletic Department would sponsor men’s and women’s swimming beginning in 2018-19. Braden’s hire will allow him a full academic year to recruit student-athletes in preparation to debut men’s and women’s intercollegiate squads during the 2018-19 academic year.

Swimming will return to Hanover after a 40-year absence, as it began as an intramural program in 1967. Using the former pool in the J. Graham Brown Campus Center, Hanover sported an intercollegiate club program from 1969-77, competing against such opponents as Louisville, Butler, DePauw and Berea (Ky.).

“I am honored and excited to be named the head men’s and women’s swim coach at Hanover College,” stated Braden. “The positive energy, the beauty, and the wonderful campus atmosphere really made it easy for me to commit to such a wonderful school.”

Braden will join the athletics staff at Hanover after spending the last four seasons as an assistant coach for the men’s and women’s swim programs at Millikin University (Ill.), where he was also a three year letter winner for the Big Blue from 2006-09. During his time in Decatur, Braden also spent three years as the head swim coach for the Decatur Swim Club.

During his tenure at Millikin, Braden assisted with the implementation of workouts, while also dealing heavily with recruitment. Since 2013, he has assisted in the coaching of nine new school records at Millikin.

As the head coach of the Decatur Swim Club, Braden managed the team operations for the Age Level, Swim Lesson and Masters Level programs. At the Age Level, his new training program helped result in 40 new club records, while also producing four Speedo Sectional swimmers and three Illinois Swimming Zone qualifiers.

Braden began his coaching career at Franklin Central High School in Indianapolis from 2009-2013. In his four seasons with the Flashes, he was named Sectional Coach of the Year by the Indiana High School Athletic Association twice, while producing 12 new school records. Braden also sent 20 swimmers to the IHSAA State Championships, with five swimmers logging top 10 finishes.

“I want to thank Hanover College for presenting me with this opportunity to establish a strong culture and tradition for Panther swimming. Hanover has a strong commitment to excellence, which I will gladly continue with the swim program moving forward.”

Braden spent his first three years at Millikin before graduating from Indiana University-Purdue University Indianapolis (IUPUI) in 2012, with a Bachelor of Arts degree in General Studies, adding advanced course work in Education, Sport Psychology and Sports Ethics.

Miller cashes in with $24 million deal
By: Associated Press, 6/27/17

New Indiana coach Archie Miller will make $24 million under his seven-year deal — and potentially even more in bonuses.
Miller accepted the job in March, but the athletic department didn't announce details of the contract until Tuesday.
He will receive a base salary of $550,000 per year and $1 million in deferred income each season. Miller also will receive an additional $1.85 million in outside marketing and promotional income — and will get a $50,000 per year raise each year through March 2024.
Miller can earn a $250,000 bonus for winning a national championship. He can earn an additional $125,000 for a Big Ten regular-season title, reaching the Final Four and producing multiyear Academic Progress Rate scores over 950.
