These are good, fun times for the Central Indiana Knights. They could get even better.
The Knights, a hockey team made up of players from Cathedral High School and other Central Indiana high schools, won a state title in 2021-2022 and is moving forward strongly in ’22-23.
The Knights are also strong enough to compete at the highest level.
“We’re playing really well,” Knights Head Coach Rob Pozzebon said.
The Knights as of early-to-mid January had won 13 of their last 14 games. They were 6-2 in the Hoosier Championship ...
The goals are lofty – and as Jason Delaney sees it, the path to the goals is clear.
Cathedral High School boys basketball is a state contender again in 2022-2023. And if the Irish are to reach their goal, they must continue improving.

The Irish, Indiana Class 4A state champions in 2021-2022, returned a strong core in 2022-2023 – and ...
This may be a different kind of season for Cathedral High School wrestling.
The Irish, perennial state-title contenders, enter 2022-2023 without their usual level of experience – and therefore with different expectations than usual. But they have front-line talent – and the potential for a memorable season.
“It’s a new experience for us, but as a team I like where we’re at,” Irish wrestling coach Sean McGinley said.
The Irish, state champions in 2014 and 2018-2020, finished fifth in 2022. They won the 2022 Cit...

This was a successful season by any measure.
Cathedral High School football throughout the 2022 season competed with the biggest schools and the best teams – and the Irish often beat the biggest schools and the best teams. They also made a run deep into the postseason.

The growth continues – in very encouraging fashion.
Cathedral High School 2022-2023 girls basketball has the feel of a program on the rise – and that’s true even beyond a solid early-season start.
The Irish, after a 15-10 season in 2021-2022, started the 2022-23 season with a record of 4-3 as of early December. And Head Coach Lisa Finn said while the schedule likely will get more difficult as the season continues, the ’22-23 Irish are a young group that is growing by the week.
“We have a good base,” said Finn,...

The Irish, after finishing sixth in the sectional in 2021, finished as the City run...
They were good, and they were close to being much better.
Cathedral High School girls volleyball also improved dramatically during the 2022 season, which set the stage for future Irish teams. That made ’22 a successful season.
