Meg Ahnert has been named the new swimming and diving head coach after spending the previous seven seasons as an assistant coach. Ahnert also teaches religion and science at Cathedral.
Ahnert graduated from Butler University, where she was a captain of the swim team. She was a member of the 4x100 medley relay that broke the Butler school record and was named to the A-10 and Big East All-Academic Team.
“As a family, we have ‘a million dreams’ for our future -- becoming head coach at Cathedral is next up on that list,” Ahnert ...
The present remained strong, and the future remained bright.
That was the story of Cathedral High School 2021-2022 wrestling, a season in which one Irish wrestler further established himself among the best in program history – and one in which others maximized their potential.
As Irish wrestling coach Sean McGinley saw it, that made ’21-22 successful.
And memorable, too.
“We’re proud of this season,” McGinley said.
Senior Zeke Seltzer won a third consecutive state championship and senior Evan Dickey turned in ...
The cheerleading teams for the 2022/23 school year have been announced - congratulations to all the student-athletes who made next year's squad. We look forward to watching you perform.
Ed Freije likes the makeup of 2022 Cathedral High School baseball.
The ’22 Irish have the usual expectations, and a familiar approach for what is traditionally one of the best high school baseball programs in Indiana. They also have experience, youth and ability.
“We feel like we’ve got a good mix, a good group,” Freije said.
Freije, in his sixth season as the Irish’s baseball coach, said the team’s strength this season again will be a focus on pitching and defense. That’s a formula that has helped Cathe...
These are strong times for Cathedral High School track and field.
The Irish not only won the Indiana High School Athletic Association girls state title for the first time in program history in 2021, they continue to build strong – and contending – teams in both the boys’ and girls’ programs.
Numbers are strong, and front-line talent is, too – and that has Irish track and field coach John O’Hara feeling good about the short- and long-term prospects for the program.
“We feel really good,” O’Har...

The idea was to balance spirit and competition.
That was Jessica Stoner’s objective in her first season as Cathedral High School’s cheerleading coach, and that objective was met to a high degree.
As Stoner saw it, that made 2021-2022 a strong season.
“I feel like it's been very successful,” Stoner said recently. “I've heard good feedback. I hope to continue to hear good feedback and just build off of it. That's my focus.”
Stoner, hired in the summer of 2021 to run a program for which she cheered...
The wait was worth it. Unbelievably so.
The 2021-2022 Cathedral High School boys basketball team won the Class 4A state title, capping perhaps the most historic season in program history in convincing – and fitting – fashion.
It was a state-title game that capped a memorable, hard-earned season.
It was a state-championship season that capped a long, memorable journey.
It was, as Jason Delaney put it, “surreal.”
“That was the feeling we all had: ‘Did this just really happen?’’’ said Dela...
This was a good season on all fronts. It was more than that, actually.
It was a championship season.
The Central Indiana Knights not only improved as a program in 2021-2022, they did so against a strong schedule – and improved as the season continued. They finished the season in fitting fashion: A state title.
“It was a pretty cool experience, actually,” Knights Head Coach Rob Pozzebon said.
The Knights – the Class 2A runner-up in 2020-2021 and team made up of students from Central Indiana high schools such Cathedral, ...
All in all, Cathedral High School boys swimming achieved in 2021-2022.
The boys not only had postseason success, they accomplished it as the sort of versatile, team-first group that coach Ashley Hill covets.
“It was a great year for the boys,” Hill said.
The Irish boys not only won the 2022 City meet, they finished fifth in the Section 14 meet at North Central with 195.5 points – behind North Central (492), Franklin Central (425.5), Lawrence North (330) and Bishop Chatard (197).
Hill called the sectional “a great met f...
There was big success and big progress.
When the two were combined, that was the story for Cathedral High School bowling in 2021-2022 – a season in which the girls and boys programs both achieved preseason aspirations.
That was particularly true of the boys team.
Irish boys bowling in 2021-2022 not only improved throughout the season, the program reached a level of success in the regular season and postseason it never previously achieved.
And it nearly reached an even higher level.
“We’re real proud of the boys,” Ir...
Progress was made, and there was plenty of success.
Lisa Finn liked those things – and a lot of other things – about the 2021-2022 Cathedral High School girls basketball season.
It was a season that featured a slew of positive memories, a slew of victories and a major step forward for a program that has made serious strides while playing in one of the most difficult sections in the state of Indiana.
The Irish formed an identity this past season, and it was a strong one.
“We had a couple of hurdles along the way, but I would ...
This was a girls swimming season to remember.
Cathedral High School swimming coach Ashley Hill said multiple factors made that true. One was the camaraderie. Another was the memories created. And then there was how the Irish performed during a season that ended with impressive finish in the season’s final meet.
“I thought they absolutely overachieved,” Hill said.
The Irish in Hill’s fourth season as head coach featured 28 girl swimmers. Of that group, 11 qualified for sectional final or consolation swims. The Irish finish...
