Hoeing at tennis regional
RCHS senior netter Kyle Hoeing finished his high school career in the regional at Carmel High School. Kyle finally got back into action after waiting two weeks for the tournament to provide an opponent after he advanced as the sectional singles champion. Hoeing played well despite the layoff losing to conference foe Mt Vernon’s Bryce Bobb 7-5, 6-2. "Kyle has been a joy to have on the team. He has been our leader all year. His steady play has set the example for the rest of the kids and we are really going to miss him," Coach Heuer said.
Martz, Ramsey clinch title
The Midwest TQ Racing League presented by Jenmarco.com closed out their fourth, and most competitive, season to date at the annual "FunFest" at the Brownstown Speedway in Brownstown.
Three-time and defending MTQRL champion Tate Martz of Rushville was in an unfamiliar place, sitting second in the standings behind Connersville's Brett Hankins. Five races ago Hankins held a 111 point advantage over Martz. Martz then went on a record tying four race win streak to close that gap to just 7 points going into the final race of the season. With 125 points on the line each driver held their fate in their own hands. A heat and feature win by either would clinch the title.
Martz, driving the Roger Ramsey #1 Old Canal Smokehouse Beast Honda, would dominate the evening by winning his heat and feature while Hankins, after suffering mechanical problems, would not be able to compete. Martz and Ramsey ended the evening with a 118 point advantage and both clinched their fourth MTQRL title.
After lap two contact sent Muncie’s Nick Speidel spinning and forced to restart on the tail, Martz cruised to his record breaking fifth straight feature win.
