Jeeps remain perfectApril 26, 2013
From Herald Staff Reports
Halfway to an undefeated regular season and two wins from sealing the Blue Chip Conference title, everything continues to be smooth sailing for the Northeast Dubois girls tennis team.
The Jeeps dismissed Vincennes Rivet 4-1 on the road Friday, pocketing three straight-set victories before waiting out two matches that went the distance. Michaela Stemle lost in three sets for the Jeeps at No. 1 singles, but at No. 2, Kendra Schroering rallied past Alyce Perry 5-7, 7-6 (7-4), 6-3.
Elsewhere, Northeast Dubois exercised its authority. Lena Kleinhage coasted 6-2, 6-0 at No. 3 singles, Talia Terwiske and Jenna Stemle soared 6-1, 6-1 at No. 1 doubles and Andrea Smock and Jennifer Schepers were 6-2, 6-2 victors at No. 2 doubles. The Jeeps (7-0, 4-0) have won every dual match this season by a 4-1 or 5-0 count.
Red Devils 2, Wildcats 1, eight innings: Class 3A No. 1 Jasper was one inning away from swiping a road victory at Jeffersonville before the Red Devils (9-3) knotted the game with a seventh-inning tally then pushed home the game-winning score in the eighth.
Jasper senior Mark Giesler limited Jeffersonville to five hits, but the Red Devils concocted both their runs via gifts. A leadoff walk led to the tying run in the seventh, and in the eighth, Jeffersonville loaded the bases after a leadoff error and produced the winning run when reliever Nick Gobert hit a batter on an 0-2 pitch.
Until those two runs, most of the rest of the contest was an offensive staredown as Giesler and Trent Astle exercised their control over hitters. Astle, who will play at Xavier University, fanned 13 Wildcats after striking out 17 Jasper hitters when he pitched against the Cats two years ago. Jasper (14-2) did reach Astle in the third inning, when Nick Gobert doubled and later scored on the first of Giesler’s two doubles.
Lakers 3, Jeeps 0: Shakamak’s Pat Green tossed a one-hitter to saddle Northeast Dubois (6-7) with a road defeat.
Rangers 189, Cardinals 203: Alex Russell (47), Addison Weyer (48) and Matt Miller (48) all shot personal-bests, piloting Forest Park to its best score in three years as the Rangers topped Washington Catholic at Country Oaks Golf Club. Winston Glenn added a 46 as the top score for the Rangers, who were 29 strokes better at Country Oaks on Friday than when they played the same course 18 days earlier.
Braves 12, Rangers 0: Class 1A No. 2 Tecumseh (8-4) cranked out 21 hits and broke away from a scoreless tie after three innings against Forest Park (7-7, 0-4 Pocket Athletic Conference). Katelyn Roos singled for the Rangers’ only hit off of Braves’ ace Tiffany Summers.
