Jeeps swipe walk-off victory, tennis titleMay 16, 2017
From Herald Staff Reports
Two days later, Northeast Dubois concocted the same magic.
The Jeep baseball team swiped its second straight walk-off victory with Monday’s 9-8 escape of Pike Central, as the Jeeps came back on their home field this time after rallying past Shakamak by an identical 9-8 count in Saturday’s Washington Invitational. This time, Case Eisenhut accounted for the winning run, as he started the sequence with a one-out triple. After Bryce Butler was hit by a pitch, Reece Bauer grounded a ball to the left side of the Charger third baseman, who couldn’t orient himself to make a good throw home as Eisenhut dashed home for the game-winner.
Rallies were the rule for the Jeeps, who fell behind 5-1 and later scored equalizing runs when Pike Central grabbed leads of 7-6 and 8-7 in the fifth and sixth innings. Northeast Dubois (12-6) survived a six-error night plus three home runs by Pike Central as Griffen Bauer popped a homer of his own (his third longball of the season) while Parker Zehr and Brandon Merkel both singled and doubled and tallied an RBI. Owen Fuhrman also drove in a run as the Jeeps improved to 6-1 in May.
Jeeps 5, Trojans 0: Northeast Dubois dismissed visiting Wood Memorial without playing a set closer than 6-3, and the Jeeps (11-1, 6-0) regained the Blue Chip Conference crown for the first time since 2013.
Chloe Terwiske was spotless in her 6-0, 6-0 No. 1 singles sweep, Taylor Dodd neared that territory in her 6-0, 6-1 verdict at No. 2 singles, and Alexis Stafford and Delaney Rasche steamed through a 6-1, 6-1 verdict at No. 2 doubles. Paige Knies pulled away 6-3, 6-1 at No. 3 singles, and Megan Lueken and Savannah Stafford nailed down the No. 1 doubles point with their 6-0, 6-3 decision.
Raiders 184, Marksmen 197: After finishing 25 strokes behind Tell City in the conference meet over the weekend, Southridge returned the favor with a 13-stroke victory at Huntingburg Country Club, where medalist Drew Dearing (40), Brayden Wibbeler (45) and Coby Reller (48) guided the Raiders.
Titans 172, Rangers 177: Evan Weyer and Dylan Weisman paced Forest Park with 43s and Colin Lane was right behind with a 44, but Gibson Southern clipped the Rangers at Cambridge Golf Course in Evansville.
Bulldogs 181, Jeeps 218: Orleans picked up a win at Jasper’s Buffalo Trace Golf Course as Lucas Gutgsell (51) and Ronnie Thewes (52) shot the top scores for Northeast Dubois.
Patriots 165, Chargers 192: With Carter Cox firing a medalist round of 39 and teammates Alex Gordon (40), Dakota Deller (42) and Rylan Cox (44) following, Heritage Hills eased by Pike Central in a makeup match at Christmas Lake Golf Course.
