May 29, 2012

    FORT WAYNE—After defeating Churubusco with a pair of runs in the seventh inning of the sectional semi-final game at Indiana Tech earlier in the day, the Starfires ran out of magic and fell to the hosting Bishop Luers Knights, 6-3 in the title game on Memorial Day evening.

May 25, 2012

    Bellmont coach Ben Fawbush commented on his tough Heritage opponents, "I don't know what it is about these guys. We come out against Mississinewa and pound the ball and I didn't think this guy (Conner Sheehan) was any better than what we saw the other day and we couldn't hit consistently."

May 23, 2012

    BUTLER— South Adams had hoped that the third time would be the charm on Tuesday night at Eastside as they played the Lady Jets for a third time this season but fell after a fifth inning meltdown, 7-2.
    Perhaps a better phrase for SA would be, "bad things come in threes."
    AC got the best of the Lady Stars in a 5-4 contest early in the season and then during ACAC play, the Jets unloaded in a similar fashion knocking off SA, 7-1 earlier in May.
