Prep sports wrap: 4/2April 1, 2019
From Herald Staff Reports
Monday night was a very successful evening for our local prep sports teams as two tennis teams, two softball teams and one baseball team were all winners.
Here’s a brief rundown of what you might have missed in Monday’s prep sports action.
Patriots 11, Spartans 4: The Heritage Hills baseball team improved to 2-0 on the young season with a victory over South Knox in Vincennes.
After defeating Northeast Dubois last Friday in a game that ended early due to rain, the Patriots had another strong showing with the victory over the Spartans on Monday.
No individual statistics were reported from this game.
Raiders 15, Wolfpack 0: Talk about a dominant performance — the Southridge softball team was victorious in five innings as they outhit Crawford County 16-1.
Briley King and Myah Montgomery combined to throw a one-hitter on the mound for the Raiders. Montgomery struck out five of the six batters that she faced.
Southridge scored nine of its 15 runs in the first inning with the Nalley sisters (Kennedy and Payton) as well as King each tallying three hits a piece. Kennedy had two triples and four RBIs on the night while Rachel Trent added a triple and Mikah Goeppner finished with two doubles.
Jeeps 6, Rams 5: The Northeast Dubois softball team played strong down the stretch to seal their first win of the season with a road victory in Paoli.
The Jeeps led 4-1 early but the Rams used a three-spot in the bottom of the fifth inning to tie things up. However, Northeast Dubois answered again with two big runs in the top of the sixth that proved to be the winning runs.
Brinley Royer was 3-for-3 with two RBIs on two doubles, Macie Brinkman had two hits and Brooklyn Dodd (triple) and Becca Brosmer both had one RBI each. Camryn Stemle got the win on the mound as she struck out seven batters while allowing four earned runs on eight hits.
Raiders 5, Eagles 0: The Southridge girls tennis team had a strong start to its season by opening up with a clean sweep of Evansville Christian.
All five matches were won by the Raiders in straight sets — Evie Sherer, Olivia Durcholz and Kelby LaRoche were victorious at the singles positions while Audra Hochgesang/Camille Fleming and Anna Kappner/Gabbie Werner were winners at the two doubles spots.
Patriots 5, Trojans 0: With a new coach and some new faces, Heritage Hills kicked off its 2019 girls tennis campaign with a statement victory over Wood Memorial.
The Patriots were winners in straight sets in all five matches. Carly Sabelhaus, Mallory Tempel and Kya Weatherholt were winners at the singles positions while Liz Mehling/Avery Neff and Kaci Ayer/Emily Patmore held down the two doubles tandems.
