Jorge Cortez led Maconaquah at the plate with a 2-for-4 game that included a double and two RBI. Kade Dennis had two hits, including a double, and an RBI. Josh Holmes had a double and Will Feller had a pair of base knocks.


Peru 166, Cass 182

Isaac Badry fired a 3-over 39 to lead Peru to the win on May 5 at Logansport G.C. Cameron Smith (41), Austin Finicle (42) and Kyle Emelio (44) followed for the Bengals.

“It was OK for the conditions,” Peru coach Doug Muzzillo said of his squad’s 166. “It was windy, but it wasn’t too cold so it was better. It was a good test coming off our second-place finish [in the Rochester Invitational] last weekend and going into conference in a week and a half.

“It should be a good conference match. I’m looking forward to it.”

Cass’ Jacob Martin won individual honors with an even-par 36. Blake Clark (48), John Harlin (48) and Derek Dittfield (50) rounded out the Kings’ team score.
