  • ST. JOHN | Sam Bell didn't want to give the ball up. Munster baseball coach Bob Shinkan didn't have too many words to say to Bell when he went to the mound with the bases loaded and one out as the Mustangs clung to a 7-4 lead in the fifth inning of Tuesday's game against Lake Central. "He wasn't saying much," Bell said. "'Do whatever you can, buckle down.' He's real superstitious. 'You got it?' he said. 'I know you're tired, but it's OK.'" Bell struck out the next two batters, both pinch hitters meant to ruffle the senior righty as The Times' No. 3 Mustangs topped No. 5 Lake Central 8-4 in the showdown. "(Shinkan) always gives me a chance," Bell said. "I'm at a loss for words right now, this is a great feeling. This is the first time I've beaten Lake Central on varsity. We beat them in football this year and now we beat them in baseball. Hopefully we can keep the streak going in sectionals." Bell struck out six in five innings and his offense spotted him a 6-0 lead after the first. "Sam Bell did an extraordinary job on the mound," Shinkan said. "I know he's a senior and he's one of our main guys. I told him this is a situation he might be put in if he's ever made a closer and to do your best. He wanted to stay out there, that's the kind of kid he is."

  • CROWN POINT | As he prepared to exit the game and sit with the rest of his deep senior class, Lake Central point guard Tye Wilburn smiled and motioned to the press table to make sure the statisticians from his school knew he had assisted on the latest bucket. His sixth and final helper of the game was not a major bookkeeping point because by that point in the fourth quarter the Indians had firmly secured a lopsided 77-43 win over host Crown Point and their second Duneland Athletic Conference championship in the last three seasons.

  • MUNSTER | It’s no secret to fans of Indiana high school swimming that Munster’s tradition of success in sectional competition dates back a long time -- well before any of the Seahorses swimmers were born. Therefore, it’s no surprise the Seahorses will head into Saturday’s Munster Sectional finals the favorite to win their 29th consecutive championship after earning No. 1 seeds in five of 11 events in Thursday’s preliminaries. “We saw some really great swims pretty much throughout,” Munster coach Matt Pavlovich said. “I’m really pleased with the way they swam. We’re set up to have some nice races (Saturday). It’s going to be tough to repeat those times again.”

  • ST. JOHN | It lived up to the hype. Times No. 1 Bowman topped No. 2 Lake Central on Friday night in an instant classic in which both teams controlled parts of the game before the Eagles came out on top 63-58. "It was a good game. I loved it," Bowman coach Marvin Rea said. "It was good for the fans, good for the region." Bowman came into the game ranked No. 9 in the state coaches poll, while L.C. was No. 12. The Bowman defense was the difference down the stretch. The Eagles forced 32 turnovers in the contest. "I told my guys, we've got 13 starters. Most teams don't have 13 starters, so we're going to keep the pressure on," Rea said. "Thirty-two minutes of hell is what we're going to give anybody." The Indians (3-1) jumped in front early and led 17-6 after the first quarter. Bowman clawed back in the second quarter, even leading in the final minute, but a Wideman steal and breakaway dunk and a Matt Meneghetti 3-pointer put L.C. up 33-23 at the break. "We played the worst first half of basketball we could ever play," Rea said. "I told them to just stay together, play together, remain disciplined and stick to what we do well, and sooner or later they'll break." The Eagles hit their free throws when they had to in the final minutes. Arthur Haggard made two with 9.4 left on the clock to close out the victory.

  • ST. JOHN | By halftime, Gina Rubino had set a personal mark for 3-pointers in a game and had the support of her Lake Central girls basketball teammates to keep shooting. In the other locker room, Merrillville's defense was hearing an earful for letting the Indians' best shooter stay wide open for the entire first half. Rubino had 24 first-half points and finished with a game-high 29 and she led Times No. 3 Lake Central to a 66-57 win over No. 1 Merrillville on Friday. The Pirates were ranked 15th in the state by the IBCA single-class poll, and the Indians were 20th.

  • ST. JOHN | Gelen Robinson rightfully has no recollection of the last time Lake Central won a sectional because it was in 1999. His memory of 2002 isn’t much better, but that was the last time Lake Central beat Merrillville. After that sectional victory, the Indians went on to lose to the Pirates 16 times in a row. Robinson does, however, have a sharp recall of a play from the last time Merrillville and Lake Central met in the postseason. Two years ago Robinson picked up a fumble at midfield at Merrillville in the sectional opener and was running unimpeded toward the end zone when the whistle blew and the officials said the Pirates player was down before the fumble. Merrillville won that game 30-24. For an athlete that seldom takes a loss in any of his three sports, the loss stung. "That hurt real bad, it hurt for a long time," Robinson said. Now the hurt is gone. Robinson had two sacks and recovered two of Merrillville’s five lost fumbles, and Lake Central ended its Merrillville misery and sectional famine all at once with an emphatic 31-0 victory over the visiting Pirates Friday night in the Class 6A Sectional 1 final at the Burial Grounds. The Indians (9-2) host Penn (11-0) next week in the regional. "It doesn't hurt anymore,” Robinson said. “I can't put into words what this means, what this feels like. Our team won this championship and it's the greatest feeling in the world." The cold and rain played into Lake Central’s favor because it slowed Merrillville’s vaunted speed-based offense and allowed Lake Central’s defense to stymie the out-of-sorts Pirates and hold them to 42 net yards rushing and 71 passing “I didn’t want to go my senior year without beating Merrillville, and that would have been the 17th loss to Merrillville, consecutively, so we definitely did not want to go out on that note, and we didn’t,” Robinson said.
