Quick Hits: Week of April 27-May 4

Ben Davis:


-The girls softball kicked up their win streak to seven with a 18-3 win against Pike and a 21-0 victory over Brebeuf Jesuit. That hot streak unfortunately came to an end Saturday, when they lost both games of a doubleheader against the Terre Haute teams (North 16-1, South 13-6). They are 7-8 on the season and take on Franklin Central tonight


-Boys golf had some good rounds last week but still fell to Cathedral on Monday (164-149) and Perry Meridian on Thursday (154-161). They play the Marion County tournament at the Fort Golf Course this morning.


-Girls tennis fell to Roncalli 5-0 on Monday last week, but recovered with a close 3-2 win against Southport on Wednesday. They’ll travel to Brownsburg tomorrow.


-The boys and girls track team put up a strong showing at the MIC championships on Friday but fell short of first place, with the boys tying Pike for fourth and the girls tying Lawrence North for fifth. The boys then placed fourth at the Kokomo relays on Saturday. The girls and boys will travel to Warren Central on Thursday for the Warren Central relays.




-The Colts shocked some fans with their draft selections this year, taking wide receiver Phillip Dorsett in the first round. Defense was addressed later in the draft, however, with selections including cornerback D’Joun Smith, defensive end Henry Anderson, safety Clayton Geathers, defensive tackle David Parry and inside linebacker Amarlo Herrera. The late offensive picks included running back Josh Robinson and offensive lineman Denzelle Good.




-After years of buildup, Floyd Mayweather Jr. and Manny Pacquiao finally fought on Saturday, but most believe it wasn’t all that it was cracked up to be. Nevertheless, Mayweather won by unanimous decision and is now 48-0.


-American Pharoah won the 141st running of the Kentucky Derby on Sunday.


-Jameis Winston was drafted first overall in the 2015 NFL draft on Thursday to the Buccaneers.


-In what was by far the most exciting game of the NBA’s first round of playoffs, the Clippers defeated the Spurs in a thrilling game seven 111-109.
-Warriors point guard Stephen Curry has reportedly won the NBA’s MVP award, the first Warrior to win the honor since Wilt Chamberlain in 1960.
