Lauren Vaughn got an RBI on an er- ror in the seventh, but two more runs was all the team could muster in the loss. Forest Park had opened the game with three runs on a homer in the three-run first inning and crossed the plate with four runs in the fifth, following a Charger three-run spurt at the top of the inning. Each teamed score a run in the sixth and then the Chargers threatened in the top of the seventh, but fell short by one to tie.

Olivia Stun- kel came in to relieve in the seventh inning and had ze- ro walks and one strikeout to end the contest. Pike Central's Alize Padgett went two innings, giving up seven hits, six earned runs, a homerun by Brenna Blume and one walk. Kenzie Powell stepped in for the remaining four innings, allowing six hits, three runs with two strikeouts and one walk. Lauren Vaughn and Han- nah Carnahan each had a single in the 9 -0 road trip loss. Seven fielding errors on the part of the Lady Char- gers hurt their cause on the defensive end. Vaughn was one for three and Carnahan was one of two at the plate. Padgett gave up the Blume home run, but only walked one and allowed one earned run. Powell notched two strikeouts, zero earned runs and one walk. Steady offense from La- dy Titans Kat Dickenson, Hannah Long, Lauren Lin- gafelter, Emilee Edwards, Colby Rogers, Olivia Money, Lexie Stunkel and Brenna Blume produced runs in the first four innings, enough to amass the 9 -0 win. The de- fense did not take a back- seat, with an error free af- ternoon. Blume added to her col- lection of homeruns and Lauren Lingafelter dou- bled with one RBI. Blume marked two RBIs, and Long, Rogers, Lingafelter, Lexie Stunkel, Emilee Ed - wards and Lauren Elpers each got an RBI. Dickenson went three for three, and Ed- wards, Lingafelter and Long were two for three. Edwards and Long each had two sto- len bases. Lady Chargers: 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 : 0 2 2 Lady Titans: 1 5 2 1 0 0 X: 9 13 0 By Andy Heuring Press-Dispatch Sports Pike Central shot a sea- son best 157 last Thurs- day at Prides Creek as they beat North Posey and Evansville Bosse. Char- ger senior Noah Onyett blistered Prides Creek for a 34, which Coach Jarrod Gideon thinks is a school record. Onyett started hot as he birdied holes one and two, and then got another at hole seven. He gave one back on hole 8 with a bo- gey, and then three putted the ninth green for par as he was threatening a four under 32 that would have been a course record in high school play. Coach Gideon said Pike Central's golf records are not well documented, but he thinks 34 is the Pike Central record. Along with Onyett's 34, the Chargers' Austin Holder had a 39, Hayden Kabrick a 41 and Judah Evans had a 43. Those four scores gave the Chargers a 157, their lowest team score of the year. It was a good day for all the Char- gers as all six varsity play- ers shot 46 or better. Jay- lan Mills had a 46 and Cut- ter Reed a 44. North Posey shot a 167 with Caleb Wassmer, who has already signed with University of Evansville, shooting a 36. Bosse had a team score of 225. Onyett ties school record Chargers belt Wood Memorial 18-8 Charger Brennon Benton was the big gun for Pike Cen- tral in the 18 -8 rough-hous- ing they gave the Wood Me- morial Trojans at their place this past Saturday. Benton's RBI double in the third and then homerun in the fourth sparked the Chargers to a 18 -3 ball game, until the Tro- jans caught fire for a five-run fifth, but it was too little, too late to keep it from a 10 -run rule ending. A large part of the contest was Charger base running. Joey Church and Kyle Wil- liams stole twice and Ben- ton, Gabe Caldwell and Con- nor O'Neal each had one. O'Neal and Williams each had three hits and Benton, Eli Coleman, Draven Huff, Conner O'Neal and Williams had two base hits. Trojan Harden Hunter went two for three with a double and two RBIs to lead Wood Memorial. Team- mates Jordan Cooper, Isa- iah Norrick and Noah Ca- sey had one hit each to help the cause.
