ROCKFORD, OHIO— A three-run homerun from Conner Lengerich in the top of the ninth inning fueled a Jets' victory in a marathon non-conference game at Parkway Monday night, 11-8 in extra innings.
Central broke a 6-6 tie in the top of the seventh when Lengerich walked, then scored two batters later on a Cooper Hill single but the Parkway Panthers would keep the game alive with one in the bottom half thanks to an RBI single from Jenson Riley tying the game back up at 7-7.
MONROE— The Adams Central boys track squad won a decisive victory in their own AC Invitational over the weekend with a 131-point showing against the six-team field at the Hangar.

The Squaws tallied four runs in the bottom of the sixth inning Friday night pulling out a come-from-behind victory against potential sectional opponent Mississinewa, 6-3.
