Prep roundup for Tuesday, April 1

Titan baseball team whips Frankton.

Taylor’s baseball team kicked off its season with a dominant victory over visiting Frankton on Monday at George Phares Field. The Titans whipped the Eagles 10-0 in five innings.

Freshman Noah Poe and senior Mike Gammans led the Center crew. Poe pitched a two-hitter, striking out seven and walking three. Gammans smacked a two-run home run for his varsity hit.

“Going into this year, we knew we had a young pitching staff, and it was great to see our freshman get off to such a great start,” Taylor skipper Brent Owens said. “He was in control the whole night, constantly ahead in the count. I was proud of him.

“We played error-free baseball and obviously we had some nice hitting so all three phases were working.”

The Titans finished with eight hits. Cole Schroeder went 2 for 3 with two RBI and two runs and Austin Douglas went 2 for 3 with two runs. Tyler Gatlin and Jordon Lazaro drove in a run apiece.

Fishers 5, Kokomo 0

Fishers scored a single run in the first inning, then four runs in the fourth to break away from visiting Kokomo.

“It was a pretty close game,” Kokomo coach Tim Weeks said. “That fourth inning, Fishers got three runs off a couple questionable things. They pitched [Nathaniel Rhodes] who is going to Marshall. I thought we played well against him. They just got some timely hits and we didn’t get the hits when we needed them.”

The Kats had four hits. Bo Baker led the way with two singles and Jared Dill had a double. Dustin Gamblin took the loss. He started and worked 4 1-3 innings, allowing one earned run. Mavric Collier pitched the final 1 2-3 innings.


Western 107, Taylor 25

Braedon Cannon won three individual events to lead the Panthers past the visiting Titans in both teams’ opener. Cannon swept the 110 hurdles (:17.2) and 300 hurdles (:43.9) and also won long jump (18-11).
