Rebels answer Jasper’s blastApril 30, 2014
From Herald Staff Reports
Just as soon as one swing brought Jasper’s softball team even with South Spencer, another big crack derailed the Wildcats’ push for a road win Tuesday evening.
Jasper accepted a 2-1 defeat at Reo, falling to 3-4 in games decided by two or fewer runs this spring. Jessie Gudorf brought the Cats (9-5) even at 1-all by crushing a solo home run in the fourth inning, but the Wildcats managed just two other hits in the game and South Spencer’s Kaylea Horn answered Gudorf’s shot with a go-ahead solo blast in the fifth inning.
In other softball:
Pioneers 8, Patriots 6: Heritage Hills fell behind 5-1 then rallied to force a 6-all tie before Class 3A No. 3 Boonville escaped Lincoln City by scoring single runs in the fifth and sixth innings. Kaitlin Kralj and Hunter Crane both provided two RBIs and Kayala Hoppenjans chipped in two hits and scored twice for the Pats (10-3).
Gibson Southern duals: Cesar Perez tucked away victories in both the 110- and 300-meter hurdles for Heritage Hills, but the host Titans glided to a 76-47 victory in the boys meet and made it a sweep by winning 84-39 on the girls side.
Jacob Pund (17 feet, 21⁄4 inches in the long jump) prevailed in the event by nearly 9 inches, and Gabe Konerding (200) and Caleb Sabelhaus (400) accounted for the other Heritage Hills wins. For the Patriot girls, Haley Goffinet (200) and Stephanie Schaeffer (high jump) swiped victories to accent a double dip of first-place runs from Sienna Crews in the 1,600 and 3,200.
Heritage Hills triangular: With their best nine-hole score this season, the host Patriots (153) topped Evansville North (162) and South Spencer (176) at Christmas Lake Golf Course behind Preston Van Winkle’s season-best round of 34 plus Corey Teaford’s 35 and 42s from Alex Gordon and Evan Braun.
