Athenian, Mustangs BB dominate

Mounties and Chargers win on links



Athenian offense continues struggles against Stars

For the third consecutive game, the Crawfordsville offense couldn’t push a run across the plate and were held scoreless. The Athenians fell 10-0 in five innings Wednesday to Sagamore Conference foe Western Boone.

CHS tallied just three hits, two coming from Kearston Hutchens, the other coming from Halle Elliot.

The Athenians fall to 0-16 (0-9 SAC) on the season with the loss and will host the Stars on Friday.


Tigers sweep Chargers in DH

After getting rained out Tuesday, North Montgomery softball traveled to Lebanon and played two against the Tigers in a Sagamore Conference double-header.

In the first game, the Chargers were down 8-0 after two innings before showing signs of life and scoring four runs. However, the deficit was too big to overcome as Lebanon defeated North Montgomery 8-4. Piper Ramey went a perfect 3-3 at the plate and drove in all four Charger runs and scored a pair herself.

Faith Shirar and Cascie Keller would collect the other two hits for the Chargers.

In game two, without Ramey on the mound, was a much different story. Things quickly took a turn for the worst for North Montgomery. Lebanon downed the Chargers 25-2 in five innings. They scored nine runs in the second, seven in the third, a single run in the fourth before adding another eight runs in the fifth.

North Montgomery took the opportunity to play some girls who normally don’t get much playing time with a change in their order. They tallied five hits, three of which came off of the bat of Shirar, Skyley Cloncs and Sienna Coleman.

With the pair of losses the Chargers fall to 2-13 (1-8 SAC). They will be back on the diamond Friday as they host Clinton Prairie.

Alex Kellerman had the hot bat for the Athenians by going 3-4 with a team-high four RBI’s. AJ Hall went a perfect 3-3 with three runs batted in, while Austin Motz also collected three hits. Bryce Dowell picked up his first home run of the season as part of his three-hit night.

Kale Wemer picked up the win on the mound throwing a complete game and allowing just two Star hits and striking out seven.

CHS improves to 16-1 on the season and remains a perfect 9-0 in conference play.


Mustangs blank Red Ramblers for WRC win

Eight Mustangs collected a single hit each as Fountain Central traveled to Attica and downed the Red Ramblers 11-0 in five innings on Wednesday.

Mounties return to form with low score vs Tiger Cubs
