Hanover tennis sweeps Transy
By: Hanover College Athletics, 4/26/17

The Hanover men’s tennis team won its third consecutive Heartland Collegiate Athletic Conference match Tuesday evening, knocking off Transylvania at home, 9-0.
The Panthers (9-10, 4-2 HCAC) have now won three straight conference matches by a count of 9-0 and have clinched a spot in next weekend’s HCAC Tournament after Tuesday’s victory.
Hanover opened the contest against Transylvania (0-15, 0-7 HCAC) by winning all three doubles matches. Freshmen Jonathan Helmers (Cincinnati, Ohio) and Mitchell Minniear (Muncie, Ind.) led throughout, winning the No. 3 doubles match, 8-1.
In the second doubles contest, sophomores Brent Barrett (New Palestine, Ind.) and Drake Clohessy (Muncie, Ind.) picked up an 8-2 victory. After falling behind 5-4, junior Dakota Smith (Greenfield, Ind.) and freshman Landon Carrico (New Albany, Ind.) rallied to win the final four games at No. 1 doubles, taking the match 8-4.
All six singles matches were completed in straight sets, with them all in favor of Hanover. Barrett was one of three Panthers to win the first set 6-0, as he added a 6-0 second set victory as well, in the No. 2 match. Also winning the first set by a count of 6-0 were Carrico and Helmers, as the freshmen both logged 6-1 second set wins at No. 1 and No. 5.
Smith competed in the No. 3 singles spot, as he conceded just two games in two sets, winning 6-1, 6-1. Clohessy won the No. 4 match, 6-1, 6-4, while Minniear notched a 6-3, 6-1 victory in the final spot.

Hanover will now turn its attention to a road contest with Franklin. The Panthers and Grizzlies are slated for a 5 p.m. match Wednesday, April 26.


Hanover baseball falls to Franklin
By: Hanover College Athletics, 4/26/17

The Hanover baseball team fell in Heartland Collegiate Athletic Conference play at Franklin Tuesday evening, 7-1.
The loss drops the Panthers to 16-16 overall and 7-13 in HCAC play. With the win, Franklin improves to 19-14 overall and 11-9 in the HCAC.
Sophomore Ty Stover (Galveston, Ind.) logged three hits in the contest, while also driving in Hanover’s lone run in the fifth inning. Junior John Scheil (Indianapolis, Ind.) ripped a double to left center and scored on a base hit from Stover to left field.
Overall, the Blue and Red held a 10-7 edge in hits, but left 12 total runners on bases. Hanover left multiple runners stranded in four of the nine innings Tuesday evening.
The Panthers had four pitchers appear in the contest, including sophomore Braydan Luce (Avon, Ind.), who blanked the Grizzlies in the eighth inning, retiring all three batters he faced. Senior Gino Chumas (Elkhart, Ind.) pitched 3.0 innings in relief, allowing one run on one hit.
Sophomore Chase Sizemore (Fishers, Ind.) reached base safely in three of his four plate appearances, logging a base hit in the second plus a pair of walks.
The Grizzlies posted four runs in the third inning to take an early lead. After HC responded with a run in the fifth, Franklin added one run in the sixth and two more runs in the seventh inning.
Hanover will look to bounce back this weekend, when they host Bluffton for the final home weekend series of the season. The Panthers and Beavers are slated to open the series with a 4:15 p.m. contest Friday, April 28.

Peterson signs with Saints
By: Associated Press, 4/25/17

Adrian Peterson has found a new home.
The face of the Minnesota Vikings for a decade finalized a two-year deal with the New Orleans Saints that will pay the running back $7 million. The deal included $3.5 million guaranteed in 2017 and is worth up to $8.25 million with incentives and escalators. NFL Network also reports that the Saints were the only team to formally offer a deal to Peterson this offseason.

Earnhardt to retire from NASCAR
By: Associated Press, 4/25/17

Dale Earnhardt Jr. abruptly announced his retirement at the end of the season Tuesday, a decision that will cost NASCAR its most popular driver as the series scrambles to rebuild its fan base.
Earnhardt has been plagued by concussions the last several years and he missed half of last season recovering from the latest head injury. It caused him to delay contract talks on an extension to drive the No. 88 Chevrolet, and the two-time Daytona 500 winner appears ready to call it quits.
A third-generation racer, Earnhardt turns 43 in October, is newly married and has said he wants to start a family.
Earnhardt is not off to the greatest start this season, with only one top-five finish so far. He took another hit Monday at Bristol Motor Speedway when a mechanical issue caused him to crash into the wall.
Earnhardt has won NASCAR's most popular driver award a record 14 times. He has 26 career Cup victories and is a two-time champion of NASCAR's second-tier series. But the son of the late seven-time champion has never won a Cup title.
Earnhardt has driven for Hendrick Motorsports since 2008 after a nasty split with Dale Earnhardt Inc., the team founded by his father but run by his stepmother. He was unhappy with the direction of DEI since his father's 2001 death in a last-lap accident at the Daytona 500, and a frosty relationship with his stepmother led him to bolt to NASCAR's most powerful team.
Earnhardt made his first career Cup Series start on May 30, 1999, at Charlotte Motor Speedway. The Kannapolis native is in his 18th full-time season at the Cup level and he made his 600th career series start earlier this year at California.
His retirement is just the latest in a series of veterans stepping away from the sport after long and popular careers.
Indiana native Jeff Gordon called it quits after the 2015 season, but he was a fill-in last year as Earnhardt recovered. Tony Stewart, another Hoosier, retired at the end of last year.

Autopsy conducted on teen killed by hammer throw
By: Associated Press, 4/24/17

A coroner has listed head trauma as the preliminary cause of death of a college student who died after being struck during a hammer-throw event at a track-and-field meet near Chicago.
The DuPage County Coroner's office says in a news release that it reached the preliminary finding after conducting an autopsy on the body of 19-year-old Ethan Roser.
Roser was working as a volunteer during Saturday's meet at Wheaton College, where he was a freshman, when he was struck by an errant throw of the large metal ball attached to a steel wire called a hammer.

Pacers bid for 2021 NBA All-Star Game
By: Pacers.com, 4/24/17

With Indiana Pacers President of Basketball Larry Bird at the wheel of a specially themed IndyCar, Pacers Sports & Entertainment today officially delivered its bid for the 2021 NBA All-Star Game to NBA Headquarters in midtown Manhattan.
Bird piloted the IndyCar down five blocks of Fifth Avenue and handed off the bid documents to NBA Commissioner Adam Silver at the league offices.

"I'm proud and honored to make this special delivery on behalf of our owner, Herb Simon, the city of Indianapolis, the state of Indiana, Pacers Sports & Entertainment and our other bid partners," said Bird. "We know that competition for the All-Star Game is highly competitive, but we are hopeful that this demonstrates how Indianapolis routinely and uniquely sets itself apart when it comes to hosting major sporting events."

Because of the competitive nature of the bid process, the bid partners cannot disclose specifics with regard to the bid or which venues will be used for the various events, including the game.

Pacers Sports & Entertainment President and COO Rick Fuson said the economic impact and national and international exposure for Indianapolis and Indiana would result in a significant return, estimated to be well in excess of $100 million.
Fuson said that the NBA All-Star effort will be privately and publicly funded and that Pacers owner Herb Simon already has committed to making a significant contribution.
Fuson also said the bid will include local and statewide outreach and a legacy project. Bid planners hope to integrate the NBA All-Star Weekend with the Indiana High School Athletic Association Girls and Boys Championships, the 2021 Big Ten Women's Tournament and the 2021 NCAA Division I Men's Final Four for a "celebration of basketball" that would last from mid-February through the first weekend in April.
