Castle’s Hemenway offered by UE

While Jack Nunge gets the lion’s share of the attention and deservedly so, Castle High School teammate Alex Hemenway is also getting college looks.
Hemenway, a 6-foot-3 freshman, has already been offered a scholarship by the University of Evansville.
Nunge, a 6-10 junior who has the perimeter skills of a guard, was watched in person by coaches from Iowa, Vanderbilt and Butler within the past week.
Castle starts five juniors and doesn’t have a senior on its roster, so the sky is the limit. We’ll see how much the Knights have improved to date, when they square off against fellow unbeaten Reitz tonight, and play Class 4A No. 11-ranked Fort Wayne Northside at 4:30 p.m. Saturday in the Bosse Showcase.

Copeland becomes Bosse girls’ head coach

Longtime Bosse High School girls’ basketball assistant Garland Copeland has moved jp to head coach. Ryan Reiter, who had guided the Bulldogs to a 1-10 record in his first year as head coach, has moved over to the boys’ program, becoming an assistant.
“I hope to continue to learn and grow as a coach from working with (boys’ head coach) Shane Burkhart,” Reiter said in a statement. “His practices are organized and very intense. The players and coaching staff have made it a very easy and positive transition for myself.”
Copeland, a former Bosse standout, played for Lionel Sinn at the University of Southern Indiana and has been on the Bosse girls’ staff for several years.
