Prep Sports Wrap, 5/15May 15, 2019
From Herald Staff Reports
There were a few other sports activities to go along with girls track sectionals. A few baseball and softball teams hit the diamond, some tennis nets saw volleys, and one team got in 18 holes. Here’s what happened and how it happened.
Wildcats 13, Pioneers 2: Jasper let the wood fly against Boonville as the Wildcats used 11 hits to score 13 runs and secure the Big Eight conference title. Senior designated hitter Trevor Krapf and senior right fielder Jacob Ahlbrand each had two hits and combined for four RBI as the Wildcats won the 25th conference title in their program’s history. Junior starting pitcher struck out five on the way to his sixth win of his unblemished season.
Panthers 10, Rangers 0: The Corydon Central Panthers used the first inning to maul the Forest Park Rangers to the tune of 10 runs in a shutout on Tuesday night. The Rangers could only manage two hits as they extend their skid to four games.
Raiders pillage Vikings: Southridge made good use of the long ball as they bashed two out of the park to take down Barr-Reeve, 7-0. Kennedy Nalley and Megan Buechler both went yard for their seventh and second home runs respectively while combining their bats for five RBI. Lydia Genet struck out four and the Raider defense produced an errorless ball game as they improved to 13-6 on the season.
Rangers 8, Jeeps 3: Forest Park was able to get the benefit of a five-run fifth inning to break up a deadlocked game and earn their fourth straight win. Kennedy Sermersheim hit her seventh homer of the season while also driving in three batters. Kylie Giesler and Sami Stout both had two RBIs. The Jeeps had 10 hits, but could only come away with three runs as their winning streak comes to an end.
Pioneers 6, Wildcats 3: Jasper had a three-run lead going into the fifth inning, but a six-run surge from Boonville across the fifth and sixth innings was enough to sink the Wildcats on Tuesday night. Mia Werner and Grace Colvin both had home runs in the loss.
Southridge takes down Princeton: Southridge hosted Princeton at the Huntingburg Country Club and came away with a win as the Raiders shot 176 against the Tigers’ 216. Michael Kappner led with a 41, Coby Reller hit 43, Carson Mundy shot 45, Aidan Blessinger stroked 47, Tristain Boerner clubbed 49, and Owen Kinker ironed out a 50.
Raiders 5, Wolfpack 0: Southridge swept Crawford County on Tuesday evening en route to their tenth win of the season. Evie Sherer defeated Kara Knight 6-2, 6-2. Olivia Durcholz defeated Megan Harvey 6-1, 6-4. Audra Hochgesang & Jordan Biehl toppled Jordan Ford & Morgan Stutzman 6-3, 6-2. Gabbie Werner & Kelby LaRoche beat Jadyn Holzbog & Madison Bohall 6-2, 6-1. Anna Kappner won by forfeit.
