Right: Xavier Shoultz races around a corner during one of his races. Shoultz won both the 1600 and 800 runs in times of 5:01.54 and 2:18.97. Tecumseh Braves jump early and post a big win The Charger armor wasn't able to fend off so many arrows shot their way by the Tecumseh Braves baseball club on Wednesday and it resulted in a 22-5 loss. Down 14 to 5 in the fifth, it was too much to hope for a come back. Unfortunate- ly, the arrows started flying again in the top of the sixth for nine more runs and the 22-5 final. It wasn't a good day for Char- ger ball, but a great one for the Te- cumseh Braves and their individ- ual and team stats. The Chargers found the home plate a little late in the game, both on scoring and pitching that occupied four hurl- ers on the home team. Race Brit- ton went three innings, giving up five hits, two earned runs and is- suing one walk. He struck out two before Joey Church stepped in for one and a third, allowing seven hits, four earned runs, one walk and notching one strikeout. Troy Rickard pitched one inning and allowed one hit, three earned runs and a pair of walks. Harley May went the final two outs with three hits, three earned runs and a pair of walks. Church was two for three at the plate and Draven Huff, Benton Brennon, Britton, Coleman and Rickard each had one hit. Rick- ard was issued the only walk and scored twice. Benton had a double, and Church and Rickard each hit triples for the Charger cause. The Chargers struggled with six fielding errors and Tecum- seh advancing on five stolen bas- es. The Braves managed 16 hits, with six players with two or more. Tecumseh got six runners on with the free ride while Pike Central was issued just one walk.

The visitors managed a run in the fifth and the sixth on five hits, and nary a walk from Brax- ton Rice. A lack of hitting for both teams was due to strong pitching. Rice marked up 21 outs and struck out three with no walks. Brennon Benton and Kyle Wil- liams had the only Charger hits, and Rickard and Connor O'Neal were base runners via the walk. Rice threw 63 strikes in 88 pitch- es and delivered 17 of 27 first pitch strikes. The pitchers duel came to an end for the Chargers when they came up empty handed in the bot- tom of the seventh. Shoultz wins big at Junior High PAC Pike Central eighth grader Zavi- er Shoultz is the Junior High PAC champion in the 1600 and 800, plus he ran on the winning 4x400 relay with classmates Fenn McCrary, Nolan Nelson and Cole Parks. They clocked a speedy 3:58 which qualifies them for the state meet in Terre Haute on May 18, according to coach Jeremy Howald. Shoultz ran a 5:01.54 to win the 1600 -meter run and won the 800 -meter run in 2:18.97 to be a triple Pocket Athlete Conference champion. Isaac Marchino added to the 77-point total for the Char- gers with a second place finish in the shot put. He progressed from 32' to 33'11" to 34'8.75 on his third and final attempt. He also finished ninth in the discus with a toss of 84'10". Braden Howald was fourth in the pole vault with a 9' height and also placed fourth in the high jump at 5'.

Peyton How- ald was also sixth in the high jump, going 5'. Other point earners were Cole Parks and Nolan Nelson tak- ing fifth and sixth in the 400 -me- ter dash (59.52, 59.71).
