SULLIVAN 1, Riverton Parke 0: After being limited to just one run in three straight losses, it was the Golden Arrows’ pitching staff’s turn to be dominant. Sophomore’s Ty Hamilton and Jaden Norris combined for 14 punchouts while allowing just three hits in Friday’s shutout.

He entered the sectional seeded No. 8.


“To see him put in so much work and get the reap of the benefits of what he’s sewn fills me with tremendous pride,” Warriors’ coach Dylan Hagemeier said of his senior. “It’s kind of like Lightning McQueen in Cars 3 with how the old vet (Kaetzel) preserved to stay relevant and competitive amongst young, fast competition.”


Kaetzel also posted a PR in the 100 with a time of 11.82 but did not place in the event.


Logan Fourman also set a personal record for the Warriors in the 300 hurdles. Fourman’s time of 45.12 was good enough for seventh overall.


The boys regional will take place on Thursday at Evansville Central.
