SULLIVAN 11, South Vermillion 0 (5): After a tough 1-run loss Friday, the Arrows bounced back in a big way Monday evening. Sullivan scored six runs in the second inning and four more in the fourth during the five-inning romp.


Ty Hamilton gave the hosts a 1-0 lead in the first inning with a sacrifice fly.


In the second frame, Marcus Roshel started the onslaught with a 2-run double, scoring Brady Drury (walk) and Ryder Pinkston (single). Four pitches later, freshman Hunter Mason came up with an RBI single before Jaden Norris capped the inning with a 3-run home run for a 7-0 lead.


The long ball was Norris’ first blast of the spring. The sophomore is hitting .381 for the season and leads the Arrows with seven RBI.


Roshel accounted for the Arrows’ final tally of the game with an RBI single in the last of the fourth. The senior, who is hitting .429 on the year, finished the game 2 for 3 at the plate and drove home three runs.


Norris also wrapped out a pair of hits in the win.


Mason made his first career start on the mound and earned the win. The talented freshman pitched the first four innings, allowed just two hits and fanned six batters. 


Will Brooks recorded the final three outs and recorded a pair of punchouts.


Drury walked twice and scored twice for the Arrows.


Sullivan (4-4) returns to the diamond Wednesday against Edgewood. 



SHAKAMAK 11, North Central 0 (5): The Lakers carried the momentum from a pair of wins over the weekend into Monday’s Southwestern Indiana Athletic Conference matchup and kept the T-Birds winless on the season.


After grabbing a 3-0 lead in the second, Shakamak busted open the game with an 8-spot in the third.


Jax Cox gave the Lakers a 1-0 lead with an RBI double before Linden Jenkins followed, two batters later, with a 2-run single.


In the third, freshman Jaden Johnson opened the scoring with a run-scoring bunt single. Madden Husband (single) and Owen Cox (double) also recorded runs-scoring hits in the big inning.


Shakamak also took advantage of three walks, a hit batter and two T-Bird errors in the frame.


Hayden Schultz recorded the only two hits of the game for North Central in the loss. Schultz singled with two outs in the first and singled again to lead off the fourth.


Husband earned his first career win on the mound, going the distance. The freshman did not issue any walks and fanned three.


Kagan Taylor pitched the final 2 ⅔ innings for the T-Birds and struckout a trio of Lakers. Taylor allowed just two runs, both unearned.


NORTH KNOX 5, Loogootee 3: The Warriors ended a 3-game losing skid by going on the road Tuesday evening for the Blue Chip Conference win over the Class 1A No. 5 ranked Lions. 


The host Lions erased a 2-0 deficit with three runs in the last of the fifth inning. But North Knox quickly regrouped with three runs of its own in the top of the sixth.


Eli Elkins pulled the Warriors even with a bases-loaded, one-out single. Braxton Yenne followed with a blooper to right field for the game-winning run before Kaleb Archer capped the inning with a sacrifice fly.


Elkins and Yenne also recorded back-to-back, run-scoring hits in the fourth inning for the Warriors’ first two runs. Elkins singled home Tyler Clark for a 1-0 lead. Three pitches later, Yenne smacked an RBI double to score Brandon Mincey.


Yenne paced the Warriors’ 9-hit attack with three knocks in the win, while Elkins and Mincey both recorded two hits.


Yenne also earned the win on the bump, tossing a complete game. The righty scattered six hits and fanned five batters.


North Knox (3-5, 1-0) remain on the road Wednesday against BCC rival and Class 1A No. 3 ranked Barr-Reeve.

Shakamak added two more runs in the first on its way to scoring in each of the first four frames.


Linden Jenkins raced home on a wild pitch with two outs in the sixth inning to enforce the 10-run mercy rule.


Owen Cox belted a 2-run home run in the bottom of the third for a 6-0 lead. The blast was the first longball of the season for Cox.


Madden Husband added an RBI single in the win as seven different Lakers recorded one hit apiece.
