Prep sports wrap: 4/6

From Herald Staff Reports

The Jasper baseball team remained perfect on the season, Northeast Dubois opened its girls tennis campaign with a victory and the Heritage Hills track teams ran to a sweep.

Here’s a brief rundown of Friday night’s prep sports action along with some results from late Thursday night.


Wildcats 3, Panthers 2: The Jasper baseball team continued its spotless start to the season with another road victory. This time, they defeated sectional foe Evansville Reitz at Bosse Field.

Jasper fell behind 1-0 early but rallied back in the second inning as Andrew Wallace had an RBI triple and Ross Peters added an RBI single to make it 2-1. The Cats took a 3-1 lead in the top of the third inning as Trevor Krapf hit his second home run of the young season.

Reitz made it 3-2 in the top of the sixth inning but Josh Weidenbenner held things down on the mound for the Cats to earn the save. Cam Kilian recorded his first victory of the season as he pitched five solid innings for Jasper.

Braves 5, Rangers 1: One inning proved to be costly as Tecumseh’s five-run outburst in the fifth inning was enough to defeat Forest Park on Friday evening.

The Rangers mustered just three hits and weren’t helped by three defensive errors on the night.

Drew Howard took the loss on the mound for Forest Park and is now 0-2 on the season.

Patriots 4, Wildcats 1: After suffering their first loss of the season in walk-off fashion to Washington on Thursday, Heritage Hills bounced back with a road victory over Mount Vernon.

The Wildcats led 1-0 early but never scored again as Heritage Hills scored two runs in the fourth inning and one run in each of the third and fifth innings.

Mark Doyle was the winning pitcher for Heritage Hills while Simon Scherry, Cayden Kratzer and Nathan Lamar all had multiple hits.


Knights 6, Wildcats 0: After being tied through the first four innings, the Jasper softball team couldn’t hold the No. 1 ranked team in Class 4A back any longer.

After losing to Evansville North on Thursday, Castle bounced back with a 6-0 victory at Jasper. Castle took a 1-0 lead in the top of the fifth inning and added five more runs after that to secure the victory.


Jeeps 4, Wolfpack 1: Northeast Dubois opened their girls tennis season with a strong performance as the Jeeps traveled to Marengo and came away with a victory over Crawford County.
