Kokomo Post 6 falls in Lafayette tourney

LAFAYETTE — Highland Post 180 dealt Kokomo Post 6 a 12-7 defeat Saturday in pool play at the Lafayette Post 11 Invitational. Kokomo’s second game against Remington was rained out and postponed to 5 p.m. today. Due to weather issues, there will be no championship game played today. Instead, teams will wrap up pool play today and that will conclude the tournament.

On Saturday, the Sixers got plenty of offense but couldn’t keep Highland in check. Isaac Turner and Logan Barnes each had two singles and a double to lead the Sixer offense. Jesse Broomfield added two singles and Tyler Goudy doubled. Conner Milligan took the loss as Kokomo fell to 10-7, snapping a seven-game winning streak.

“I bragged all season long about our defense, how well it’s played and being as superstitious as baseball coaches are, I should have never said anything because [Saturday] our defense let us down,” Kokomo coach Don Andrews said. “I’ve been proud of the boys all year and I know they’ll bounce back [today] and have a great game.”

Local athletes fare well at Westfiled

Andrews won the 3,000-meter run in a time of 12:15.56. Pham won the high jump with a leap of 5 feet. McClain won her division of the 3,000 in a time of 11:30.

It was easy to tell as a red rash covered her arms and her face was painfully swollen. She is one of those people who loves being outdoors yet highly allergic to the common plant. Sometimes I believe she can get the rash by simply looking at the noxious weed.
