Cat duo zips past relay fieldAugust 20, 2013
From Herald Staff Reports
By the time Jasper cross country runners Hannah Welsh and Donald Bough completed their tandem takedown, the duo might have wondered if they’d run the right course.
Welsh and Bough scorched the field at Monday’s Alice Relay in Vincennes, teaming to complete the 10K course in 34:10, more than two minutes faster than the second-place pair from South Knox.
Each tandem was comprised of a boy and a girl. The girl runner completed the first 1-kilometer loop and the boy followed. The sequence was repeated five times.
Northeast Dubois’ Justin Kahle and Latesha Merkel placed third in 36:28. Tara Cassidy and Chris Brake of Jasper nabbed fifth place. Northeast Dubois’ Lauren Betz and Luke Kerstiens collared sixth place, while Jasper’s Sydney Berger and Tyler Dorsam and Noelle Weyer and Kelby Uebelhor, placed seventh and eighth, respectively. The Cats’ Lauren Rennie and Caleb Dosch were 10th.
Ranger triangular: Steered by Annika Harmon's 39 and Annie Getzin's medalist-winning 38, Jasper (167) claimed top honors against Forest Park (205) and Heritage Hills (227) on Monday at Christmas Lake Golf Course in Santa Claus.
Jessica Rillo and Sarah Ackerman supported the Wildcat cause with 45s, while Madeleine Hurst collared a 46 and Catherine Bell shot a 49. Amie Weyer posted a team-best 48 for the Rangers, accompanied by Jordan Buechler (49), Brie Englert (53), and Rachel Metz (55). Eryn Jochim fired a 50 for Heritage Hills, while Dallas Buse chipped in with a 53.
Bears 5, Wildcats 2: Despite Jasper’s Emily Jones slotting a pair of goals, host Evansville Central ended a 1-all halftime deadlock with four second-half goals in the Wildcats’ season opener. Shannon Sonderman collecteds 10 saves for Jasper.
Jeeps 5, Chargers 0: Northeast Dubois launched its 2013 campaign with gusto, blanking Pike Central in Petersburg. Ethan Kieffner didn’t surrender a game at No. 3 singles, and neither did William Schepers and Tristan Linne at No. 2 doubles. Tyler Haas (No. 1 singles) and Gage Knies (No. 2 singles) each notched 6-2, 6-0 victories while Patrick Betz and Cayden Knies came from behind to complete the sweep at No. 1 doubles 4-6, 6-3, 6-2.
Braves 3, Rangers 0: Forest Park resisted throughout the first set but couldn’t sidetrack Pocket Athletic Conference visitor Tecumseh, falling 25-20, 25-10, 25-15.
Lydia Lange, Jordan Voges and Devin Schaefer each pummeled six kills for the Rangers, while Anna Hagedorn collected seven digs, six points and a pair of aces.
