A no-hitter and a comeback victory highlighted Wednesday's prep sports action.
Here’s a brief rundown of what you might have missed from last night.
Wildcats 6, Chargers 4: The Jasper baseball team improved to a perfect 7-0 on the season with a home victory over Pike Central on Wednesday evening.
Grant Ahlbrand and Isaac Bartley were among the players who drove in runs for the Jasper victory as the Cats held on strong late to secure the win. The Cats led 6-2 after six innings of play but Pike Central scored two runs in the final inning before Jasper was able to shut them down.
Tigers 5, Patriots 1: It was a tough home outing for the Heritage Hills baseball team as they were held to just three in hits in Wednesday's loss in Lincoln City to Evansville Memorial.
Blake Bryant had two of the three Patriot hits in the loss while Noah Chesnut added the other. Ben Gordon took the loss on the mound for Heritage Hills. Adam Evans was the only Memorial player to have multiple hits as he finished with two, including a double.
Wildcats 14, Hatchets 0: Jasper was victorious in five innings on the road thanks to freshman pitcher Kylie Morton's no-hitter.
The Cats jumped out to a 10-run lead after two innings of play and sealed the deal in a run-rule game as the Cats continued their solid start to the season. Morton only gave up three total hits for the Cats without walking anyone or giving up any hits.
Jasper totaled 13 hits with Grace Colvin, Halli Leinenbach and Karly Thomas leading the way with two hits each.
Raiders 12, Lions 7: After a tough loss to Jasper at home last night, Southridge bounced back with a victory on their home field against Loogootee after trailing 5-2 heading into the bottom of the fifth inning.
Peyton Nalley led the team with four RBIs with three of them coming on a three-RBI triple in the sixth inning which broke the game wide open. Rachel Trent and Kolby Jones also both had multiple hits while Jones added two RBIs.
Briley King and Lydia Genet combined to allow only four earned runs while striking out four total batters combined.
Patriots 19, Tigers 9: Heritage Hills notched a five-inning victory over Princeton to bounce back after suffering their first loss of the season to Vincennes Lincoln.

Kyla Peter was the winning pitcher on the mound for Heritage Hills as she struck out three Tiger batters.
Tigers 4, Raiders 1: The Southridge girls tennis team suffered a tough loss on the road tonight as they were defeated by Princeton.
Southridge's lone victory came at No. 1 doubles as Audra Hochgesang and Camille Fleming were victorious due to Princeton's doubles tandem of Syerra York and Kloe Key had to forfeit due to an injury.
