Western takes sole possession of MIC baseball lead


Tyler Till led Taylor with a 51 and Nick Denman added a 52. Fred Durham (57) and Caleb Copp (59) rounded out the Titans’ top four.

Carroll 175, W. Central 207, Frontier 237

Ty Gray shot a 4-over 40 on the front side at Edwood Glen C.C. in Lafayette to lead the Cougars to a comfortable victory. Justin Roberson added a 42, Cole Hickner shot 46 and Luke Atkisson shot 47. Carroll improved to 13-5 on the season.

“My gosh it was awful cold and awful rainy, and windy,” Carroll coach Jack Lane said. “It was coming down pretty good but we really played good considering the wind, and the rain. For a bunch of young kids — they’re all sophomores and juniors — they’re really playing good.”


Kokomo 4, Northwestern 1

The Wildkats picked up a victory over a potential sectional opponent for the second time in as many days, taking three-set wins at three spots to outlast the Purple Tigers.

Regina Del Bosque was a 3-6, 6-3, 7-5 winner for Kokomo (4-3) over Alexis Hungate at No. 2 singles.

Emily Morita was also a three-set winner for the Kats, taking a 4-6, 6-0,6-3 decision over Kady Whitehead.

The Kats’ No. 1 doubles tandem of Stephanie Kailey and AnneMarie Balsbaugh defeated Madison Wells and Megan Floyd, 6-3, 5-7, 6-2 to round out the three-set matches.

Rachel Stout and Sunnih Flores were 6-0, 6-3 winners of Erica Plutat and Lauren Miller at No. 2 doubles to round out Kokomo’s winners.

“It was a tough match,” Kokomo coach Natalie Rainey said. “It could’ve easily gone 4-1 for Northwestern. It was pretty intense with three matches that went three sets. To our credit, we won all three so I think that says a lot about our mental toughness. I’m proud of them for sticking with it. Regina got her first win of the year, so I’m really proud of her.”

For Northwestern, Emily Harshman picked up a 6-3, 6-2 win over Amanda Tran.

Cass 5, Taylor 0

The Titans fell to 2-3 on the year, and 1-2 in MIC play with the loss to the Kings.

Cass’ Gabi Hartley defeated Jessica Fox 8-6, 6-4 in the battle at No. 1 singles.

“All the matches were over, including JV, and those two were still in the tiebreaker in the first set,” Taylor coach Dave Wise said. “They played for almost 2.5 hours in two sets.”
