In the first game, Hailey Holt led Cass with a single and double. Ashton McClain added two singles and Alexa Humerickhouse had a double.

Cheyenne Dittmaier was the winning pitcher. Dittmaier allowed four runs (one earned) on four hits and one walk with five strikeouts.

In the second game, Savannah Thompson was the losing pitcher. Thompson allowed three runs (one earned) on seven hits and struck out three.



Western took fifth as a team in Saturday’s tournament held at Tippecanoe Valley CC in Monticello with 339 strokes, behind champion Culver Academy (318), Lebanon (319), Harrison (329) and Peru (336).

Lebanon’s Matt Shear grabbed medalist honors with a 2-over 74.

Tyler White led the Panthers with a 79 to take fifth individually. Ryan Rossi added an 83 for Western, while Brennan Raines shot an 86 and Austin Smith carded a 91.

“It was a good field but we have to get better,” Western coach Steve Hoppes said. “We found out we have to get better to compete with the Culvers and the Lebanons. Those are good squads, and Peru played really well. They’re a sectional opponent so we have to get better, and the kids agreed.”

Cameron Smith led Peru with a 78 to take fourth overall. Isaac Badry carded an 84 for the Bengal Tigers, while Austin Finicle and Kyle Emilio both shot 87s.



The Wildkats split with the Raiders at home to move to 4-2 on the season.

In the opener, Chase Pearce plated Isaac Turner with an RBI single to give Kokomo a walk-off win.

S.A. Dunn and Bo Baker both went 2-for-3 at the plate in the opener. Baker had a double and a pair of RBIs.

Adam Bartholomew started and worked six innings, surrendering three runs, two earned, on two hits and three walks while fanning five. David Partida worked a perfect seventh to pick up his second win in as many days.
