Prep Roundup for Sunday, April 20

Western runner Grider, Kokomo thrower Blackamore set meet records


Austin Douglas led Taylor in the closer with a 4-for-5 effort with a double and three singles. Stone and Schroeder each had two singles, and Jonathan Mahoney doubled and singled.

Noah Poe was the winning pitcher, throwing the first four innings and departing with a 7-3 lead. Mahoney threw the last three innings to close out the win.

“Clinton Central kept creeping back but we held on to get the win,” Owens said. “[In the seventh] they had runners on first and second and hit a ball down the left-field line that was foul by a foot. That would have beat us 10-9. And if we don’t get those two runs in the seventh they would have beat us 8-7. It was definitely critical that we got those two runs in the seventh.”


The Braves swept the Trojans in Saturday’s doubleheader to improve to 5-2 on the season.

In the opener, Josh Holmes worked a complete game two-hitter with nine strikeouts. Tri-Central’s run was unearned.

Holmes and Kade Dennis led Maconaquah’s 12-hit attack with a double, single and two RBIs apiece. Jorge Cortez, Will Feller and Josh Fewell each added a pair of singles.

In the nightcap, Taylor Lamble took a no-hitter into the sixth before Fewell came on with one out in the bottom of the seventh with runners on second and third. Fewell struck out the Trojans’ final two hitters to nail down the save.

Fewell and Dylan Chance each smacked a double in Game 2.

Cass 6, Covenant 4Speedway 2, Cass 1

Cass (4-2) defeated Convent Christian in the opener, but lost to Speedway in the second game.

In the win over CC, Jake Wilburn led Cass with a single and triple and Ty Stover added a single and double. Josh Rankert was the winning pitcher, and Dakota Hammond picked up the save.
