From Herald Staff Reports

The Forest Park softball team had a dominant Saturday with two double-digit victories including a no-hitter while the Northeast Dubois baseball team fell just short of a win.

Here’s a brief rundown of Saturday’s prep sports action.


Rams 9, Jeeps 8: Playing an extremely young lineup, the Northeast Dubois baseball team fell just short of a victory on the road at Paoli on Saturday afternoon.

The Jeeps led 8-7 entering the bottom of the seventh inning but Paoli drove in two runs to seal the deal. Six defensive errors from Northeast Dubois didn’t help their cause, as well.

Bryce Merkel and Logan Mehringer both had a pair of hits for the Jeeps while Colby Pieper led the way with three runs driven in. Kendrick Thombleson took the loss on the mound for Northeast Dubois.
