Prep roundup for Saturday, May 2

Watterson shoots 3-under 33 to lead Kat golfers to great round

Eastern pitcher Abby Oyler belted a two-run homer with an out in the bottom of the seventh inning to lift the Comets to a come-from-behind 4-3 victory over Tri-Central Friday on the Eastern diamond.

Tri-Central scored three runs in the first two innings, putting the Comets in a hole. After turning to Abby Oyler as a relief pitcher, Eastern (11-3) scored single runs in the second and third but couldn’t pull even or ahead until the final frame.

“We didn’t get off to a good start and gave up the three runs, and we stranded eight runners,” Eastern coach Jerry Haines said. “We had plenty of chances to get back in the game ... just stranded most of our runners. It looked like it wasn’t going to get done until that seventh inning.

“The [TC] outfielders were playing right against the fence. You had to hit it out of you were going to get it away from them.”

Lizzy Mavrick started the winning rally with a leadoff double in the seventh before scoring on the tater. Mavrick added two singles in the game. Abby Oyler added a double and a single. In the circle, Abby Oyler struck out nine and gave up a hit and two walks in 5 2/3 innings.



Kokomo’s Zach Watterson tied his career-best for a nine-hole round with a sizzling 3-under par 33 on the front nine at Chippendale to lead the Wildkats to a 2-over round. The Kats put four scores under 40 as Tanner Guyer and Jake Hopkins each shot 37 and Ryan Balog shot 39.

“Zach started out the round birdie-birdie-birdie and I just had a feeling from there on it was going to be a good score and a good match,” Kokomo coach Jay Davis said. “I don’t expect to shoot this every time we go out, but at least it shows me we have the potential to shoot a low score.
