Prep sports wrap: 4/27

From Herald Staff Reports

Friday night’s prep sports action saw a near no-hitter for one local baseball team while several other games also took place.

Here’s a brief rundown of what you might have missed.

Baseball

Rangers 10, Titans 0: Gavin Knust already pitched one no-hitter this season and he nearly recorded another on Friday afternoon against Gibson Southern.

The junior hurler pitched a complete game one-hitter for his third victory of the season as the Rangers defeated their conference rival in five innings.

Knust also hit his first home run of the season in the win and also recorded a double. Gage Hasenour and Garret Berg also both had extra-base hits in the victory.

Golf

Rangers 175, Cardinals 193: The Forest Park boys golf team played very well against Washington Catholic even with heavy winds that went against their favor.

Colin Lane was the match medalist with a score of 41 while Brant Tretter (42), Gavin Edele (46), Cooper Uebelhor (46), Jake Rickelman (48) and Keenan Bertges (49) rounded out the rest of Forest Park’s scoring.

Softball

Rangers 12, Spartans 4: Forest Park’s nine-run first inning was more than enough to carry them to victory on Friday night in front of the home faithful as they defeated South Knox.

Ali Welp recorded the complete game victory on the mound as she rifled off eight strikeouts.

Kennedy Sermersheim had three doubles at the plate and Kylie Giesler added a double and a home run. Macie Zink also had a double in the victory.

Tennis

Jeeps 4, Patriots 1: The Northeast Dubois girls tennis team improved to a perfect 8-0 on the season with a home victory over conference foe Vincennes Rivet.

Chloe Terwiske (No. 1 singles), Olivia Rasche (No. 2 singles), Paige Knies/Alexis Stafford (No. 1 doubles) and Delaney Rasche/Olivia Schroering (No. 2 doubles) were all winners for the Jeeps.

Rebels 3, Rangers 2: In a tough Pocket Athletic Conference battle, South Spencer barely edged Forest Park in Ferdinand.

Brooke Haug (No. 1 singles) and Haylie Marks (No. 2 singles) were both winners for the Rangers.
