    HIGH SCHOOL BASEBALL: Defending champ Silver Creek falls to Evansville Memorial

    The weight of past successes could have easily buried many teams, but the Silver Creek Dragons and their first-year head coach, Ryan Wheeler, didn't fold under the pressure. Silver Creek entered the season as defending Class 3A state champions. An assistant for the Dragons before 2024, Wheeler replaced a legend in Joe Decker, who coached Silver Creek for 29 seasons including last year's title run. The Dragons displayed their champion pedigree when it mattered late in the season, winning another sectional and regional title to advance to a semistate semifinal with Evansville Memorial.
