There’s big news on the hardcourt in the Fort Wayne area

Introducing Club 1

Local basketball coaches joined Parkview Sports Medicine, SportONE and Cougar Basketball as they introduced Club 1; an innovative approach to youth basketball that combines the largest youth basketball leagues in northern Indiana with one of the top college coaching staffs in the state.
Club1 Basketball is led by experienced college coaches who focus on the importance of high school coaches’ involvement in helping young athletes reach their full potential. The league offers the opportunity for players of all ages (elementary through high school) to hone their skills through leagues, tournaments, travel teams, camps and individual instruction – all in one place.
Until recently, the Northeast Corner Basketball League (NCBL) was the largest youth basketball league in the area offering five-week leagues to boys and girls teams in each age division from 3rd-8th grade. Now, the NCBL has teamed up with the Cougar Basketball coaching staff and Parkview Sports Medicine to create the new league and offers a comprehensive basketball club including high school athletes and more teams than ever before. Club1 Basketball opportunities for boys and girls:

  • Basketball leagues (grades 3-8) in Fort Wayne, Northeast Indiana, South Bend, and Kokomo.
  • Cougar64 High School Exposure League (boys and girls grade 9-12)-Fall and Spring in Fort Wayne and South Bend-invitation or coach recommendation only

Come from 7 runs back to get sectional victory in 7th inning

Greg Jones | The Journal Gazette

NEW HAVEN – Just in time, the New Haven bats woke up in a battle of Class 3A top-10 teams in the New Haven baseball sectional.

The No. 6 Bulldogs overcame a seven-run deficit and completed an improbable 11-10 comeback win in the bottom of the seventh against No. 5 Leo on Friday.

In the seventh, Reese Olden led off with a single, went to second on a sacrifice bunt and to third on a wild pitch. Leo chose to intentionally walk Bulldog big hitters Garrett Mohler and Hayden Graham to load the bases.

Sean Ferguson then lifted a fly ball to right field, and Olden scored easily for the game-winning run.

“It was crazy,” Olden said of making the comeback. “I don’t know how, but I am just glad we got the win. That could have been bad. I am still stunned by it. Earlier this year, we were down 10-1 to Snider, and we just battled back and got the win the same way we did here.”
