Poplar Street, Petersburg Hannah Carnahan's bat was key throughout Thursday's contest with the Loogootee Lady Li- ons, but it wasn't enough to tame the bats be- longing to Tyanna Graber and Ade Nolley, who together hammered three homers and helped their Lady Lions to prevail 12-6 in the late go- ing Thursday night game. Both teams were able to crush the ball past fielders and match scoring until the sixth inning when the Lady Lions managed five runs, begin- ning with an RBI single by Graber in the top of the seventh. The game had been tied at three all in the third, five to four in the fourth and then six to five in fifth. That one run edge in the fifth ended in the sixth when Loogootee crossed the plate with five runs and then added two more in the seventh. Pike Central's Carnahan wasn't idle any of that time, collecting three RBIs in the early going.

By Andy Heuring Press-Dispatch Sports Pike Central thinks they had two firsts for the boys' golf program over the week- end. Senior golfer Noah Onyett set a school record for the lowest 18 -hole round in competition. He shot a 69, one under par at the Old Country Club of Vincennes on Saturday. His teammate, Cutter Reed, had a hole in one. "Very proud of the effort of the team and improvements we have made so early in the season. Noah had one of the best ball striking rounds I have ever witnessed. His 69 could be an 18 -hole school record. He actually had a four putt on one hole, so that really tells you how well he played. I don't think he missed more than a couple greens all day long and was usually with- in 15 feet from the hole for birdie all day. He literally played a pretty flawless round minus the putting on one hole," said Char- ger Coach Jarrod Gideon. Onyett's 69 was the second lowest score of the day in the 16 -team event that includ- ed perennial state contender Evansville Memorial and Mater Dei. Only Eli Rohled- er's 68 was lower. Pike Central, as a team, finished fifth Chargers nipped in Loogootee Invite The Pike Central Lady Charger tennis team notched a 5 -0 win against North Da- viess in Saturday's Loogoo- tee Invitational but fell short in the finals by a score of 3-2 to Loogootee. Number three singles and the number two doubles team scored solid wins for the Chargers but losses at number one singles and number one doubles plus an injury during the number two singles match gave the Lady Lions the win in their invitational. Despite an ankle injury that sidelined Nat Bohnert during her number two singles match with Emily Wade, the Charger was named a medal- ist along with Wade. Meredith Benson, Chloe Roy and Adair Kabrick were also medalists in the Loogootee Invitational. Audrey Keepes lost to Lady Lion Melaina Tippery 6 -0, 6 - 2 in the finals after defeating Shaeanna Knepp 6 -1, 6 -1 in the 5 -0 North Daviess semi-fi- nals. Bohnert retired due to injury in the finals against Wade (5 -7, 2-2) but notched a 6 -1, 6 -0 win over Macey Wagler in the semi-finals. Meredith Benson defeated Brittany Potts 6 -1, 6 -3 in the Loogootee finals following a 6 -0, 6 -0 win against Alexis Knepp from North Daviess. Chargers Chloe Roy and Adair Kabrick defeated Mad- isyn Wade and Katie Callison 6 -2, 6 -1 in the finals and re- tired Dakota McKnabb and Hannah Lengacher. Kirsten Jansen and Shelby Vaughn fell 6 -2, 6 -1 to Kasht- en Burch and Leonna Hedrick in the finals but notched a 3-6, 7-5, 1-0 (8) win in their match up with Abi Glesier and Emily Kemp in the semi-finals.
