Prep roundup for Wednesday, April 2

Western tops LCC in baseball; NW sweeps Eastern in track

Class 3A No. 2-ranked Lebanon used a late rally to beat Kokomo 7-2 in the Wildkat softball team’s opener Tuesday.

Kokomo led 1-0 after four innings. Visiting Lebanon scored a single run in the top of the fifth to knot the score, then exploded for six runs in the sixth to surge into the lead. The Kats scored a run in the bottom of the sixth, but the Tigers slammed the door shut in the seventh for the 7-2 win.

“Lebanon is very good — a number of their girls already have signed to play in college,” Kokomo coach Mike Susong said, noting the Tigers pitched an Evansville recruit. “They’re No. 2 in the state and they expect to win a state championship this year. For that to be our first game and to have the lead after four innings and tied after five innings, I was pleased. The wheels kind of fell off in the sixth inning. We started getting the ball up in the strike zone a little more so they hit it a little more solid, and we had some defensive plays that we could have made to get out of the inning quicker and we didn’t make those plays.”

Kokomo had five hits. Paige Ward and Ramsie Hurlock both went 2 for 3 and Alexis Clark had the other hit. Susong noted Ward and Clark are freshmen who had nice varsity debuts.

Kami Sharp pitched a complete game for the Kats. She allowed eight hits, struck out two and walked two. Cathy Skaggs and Sarah Haughn each had a nice defensive play in support of Sharp.

Taylor 19, Southwood 7, 5 innings

Six Taylor players had multiple hits as the Titans rolled past the visiting Knights for a 19-7 win in their opener.

Rachel Hafley went 3 for 4 to lead the Titans. Jacquelyn Rhoades and Brie Boehler both went 2 for 3 and Savannah Delgado, Lydia Owens and McKenna Deckard added two hits apiece.
