  • MUNSTER | Munster boys tennis coach Steve Lopez knows his team can play with anybody. That includes ranked teams, as the Mustangs defeated No. 16 Crown Point 3-2 on Tuesday to continue their postseason run. Though Wednesday's Munster Regional championship match against Merrillville wasn't as difficult as Tuesday's semifinal, the Mustangs weren't going to overlook anybody. They came away with a 5-0 win over the Pirates to win their ninth straight regional championship, and continued their own state record with their 31st title as a program. “I still think this was a great regional,” Lopez said. “The way it was represented and how tight all the matches were, I think it speaks volumes for region tennis.” With five varsity players graduating last season from Munster's team, young players like sophomores Trey DeLuna and Arlo Detmer have turned up their games this season. “This year, we knew we had to step it up to keep the tradition alive,” DeLuna said. “It feels really good that we accomplished that.” DeLuna continued the momentum from a 6-3, 7-6 (7-3) win in Tuesday's No. 2 singles match against Crown Point's Lance Noerenberg with a 6-0, 6-0 win over Merrillville's Ayron Williams on Wednesday. “When I played (Noerenberg) in past tournaments and the offseason, he won decisively,” DeLuna said. “I feel like this season, with coach Lopez and my team, I really improved and I feel like I'm at that level where I can compete with the top guys at No. 2 singles. They really encourage me and help me improve to get at a high level at No. 2 singles.” Merrillville (5-14) gave Munster a couple scrappy matches. Nygel Jackson fought hard with Colin Richter at No. 1 singles, but Jackson lost 6-2, 6-1. “We played better at every position than we have all season,” Merrillville coach James Simon said. “Our relationship (with Munster) is so good. One day, we'll be able to give them a run for their money. Until then, we'll just enjoy coming out here.” Munster (17-4) will face No. 1 Carmel (20-1) at Saturday's Culver Academies 1 Semistate. The Mustangs have ran into the Greyhounds brick wall in the last two semistate rounds and have lost with matching 5-0 scores. “We've lost to them, and I think we're just going to go in and do our best,” DeLuna said. “We know we can play well, and hopefully our games rise with better competition.”

  • MUNSTER | Talk about your pressure situation. With Crown Point and Munster tied 2-2 and the right to advance to the Munster Regional championship on the line, it all came down to Munster's Arlo Detmer and Patrick Toth, who were facing off against Crown Point's Dominic Peretin and Carson Hoogeworf in No. 1 doubles. Already down one set after a 7-5 loss, the Munster duo rebounded to post 6-4, 6-1 wins over their opponents and give Munster the 3-2 win over the Bulldogs. Munster will face Merrillville, 3-2 winners over Morton, in today's championship. Detmer and Toth faced a 3-2 deficit in the second set, but fired back as the pressure grew thick. "We knew we had the talent to win that set," Detmer said of the second set. "Three to two, that's close. We just hung in there and started playing better." "We did it for the team, we did it for coach (Steve Lopez)," Toth said. "He came back for us. We can't let him down, getting so close and collapsing before the finish line." Detmer and Toth were well aware of the circumstances at hand. With the support of a large Munster crowd, Detmer used it as fuel for the fire. "In that third set, with that kind of fan support, I knew we were going to win it 6-1," Detmer said. "It gets me so pumped up. I love it. Some players will crumble (under pressure). We certainly did not." One striking difference between this match and Crown Point's 4-1 win on Sept. 30 was that the Mustangs (16-4) didn't lose confidence.

  • MUNSTER | Shayley Summers took a bottle near the end of the fourth game and got a fresh diaper in the middle of an intense fifth. The three-month-old daughter of Tracy and Ryan Summers had no idea what was going on just a few yards away from her fourth-row seat Wednesday night at Munster Fieldhouse, but one day she’ll hear tell of it. Her parents staged an epic volleyball match that ended with Tracy’s Munster squad beating Ryan's Marian Catholic team 25-21, 25-20, 24-26, 16-25, 15-7 in a matchup of Times No. 1 teams on opposite sides of the border. Tracy improved to 2-1 all-time against Ryan in their careers as head coaches. "It's exciting, because we both know so many players on both sides of the net," Tracy Summers said. "It's fun to try to guess what he’s thinking and see what strategies he uses. Other than that, it's a great opportunity for us to play a great team." There were no side wagers between the new parents, but Ryan expected dish duty as they exited the gym. "We didn’t say it, but it's kind of understood who's doing the dishes," Ryan said. "But in the end, Shayley wore a Marian ‘M’ on her shirt and not a Munster ‘M’ so I’ll take that." The unbeaten Mustangs (12-0) ran to a 2-0 lead after winning a pair of games that were tied late. Marian (2-6), however, held close in a third game that was tied nine times. The Spartans scored the final three points of that game to win 26-24 and then dominated the fourth set 25-16. "We get so focused the first two games and then back off a lot for some reason and don’t stay as focused," Munster hitter Antonia DalleCarbonare said. "Then we realized we need to step it up and won the last one." DalleCarbonare led the Mustangs with 15 kills and 27 digs, while Shannon Farrell added 13 kills and 18 digs and several mental assists.

  • MUNSTER | When Leroy Marsh won his 200th football game as a head coach, he did so with a stout defense and a quarterback in his first year in the program. Marsh and Munster beat Lake Central 27-9 in the opening week of the 2013 season Friday, and the success started in October 2012. "This was started by the team that played Merrillville," Marsh told his players, "those seniors started it, and you're continuing it." Munster lost to Merrillville 28-21 on Oct. 19, 2012 in the first round of the sectional, then hit the weight room. Junior Seth Gutwein scored two of Munster's touchdowns, the first on a 5-yard run to give the Mustangs a 7-0 lead and the second on a 92-yard kickoff return after Lake Central pulled within five points at 14-9. "Joey Jumonville did a great job for us at quarterback and has a real solid focus," Marsh said. "Our whole defense was successful for us tonight." The rest of his offense he turned over to senior Jumonville, who was playing football for the first time since his freshman year at St. Rita. After Jumonville committed to take his baseball talents to Northern Illinois, he decided to spend his season with his friends on the football team instead of at fall baseball games.
