INDIANAPOLIS (WISH) — On Wednesday, Sports Director Anthony Calhoun and the WISH-TV Sports team announced The Zone schedule for Week 8.
Last Friday night, The Zone team traveled to 22 schools across Central Indiana, covering more high school football games than any other TV station in the state!

Game 9: Perry Meridian @ Decatur Central
5A. No 9 Decatur Central (5-2) just put up 63 points against Greenwood. The Hawks host Perry Meridian (2-5) this week.

Game 13: North Central @ Pike
There is one combined win between these two teams. Is this the week that North Central (0-7) gets its first win of the season or will Pike (1-6) get a much-needed home victory?
Game 14: Terre Haute North @ Guerin Catholic
Similar story to the two teams in game 13, Terre Haute North (0-7) has not enjoyed the taste of winning this year. Meanwhile, Guerin is 5-2 and ranked No. 5 in 3A.

Game 19: Pendleton Heights @ Yorktown
A good Pendleton Heights team (5-1) heads northwest to play Yorktown (4-3).
Game 20: Monrovia @ Cascade
A pair of 5-win teams face off as the Monrovia Bulldogs have a trip to Cascade to take on the Cadets on Friday.
