The Press-Dispatch Sports Wednesday, April 11, 2018 B- 3 into second base with a double. Sophomore right field- er Lauren Vaughn followed with a single to drive home Barnes, giving the Lady Chargers a 3-0 lead. Senior pitcher Peyton Sorgius then drew a walk, putting runners on first and second bases for the next hitter, junior second base- man Emily Carnahan, who delivered a run-scoring sin- gle to give Pike Central a 4- 0 lead. Then, after senior cen- terfielder Shelbi Pipes was hit by a pitch to load the bases, Stone – batting for the second time in the first inning – delivered a bas- es-clearing double that hit off the fence in left center- field, extending the Lady Chargers' lead to 7-0. "The whole team just got fired up after that," Weisman said. "Like I told them, 'Why does it take something like that there to get everybody fired up? ' It seems like every- body's waiting for some- body else to do it, and then, it's like a plague – it carries on and everybody gets on the bandwagon, and it just takes off." Loogootee, however, would hold the Lady Char- gers scoreless over the next four innings, includ- ing in the fourth inning, when Pike Central load- ed the bases with one out before Lady Lions junior pitcher Sydney Davis re- tired Vaughn on a pop-up to shortstop Chelsie Sut- ton and then got Sorgius to ground-out to Sutton. Loogootee scored its on- ly run of the game when Graber belted a long home run to right field with two outs in the bottom of the fifth inning to cut the Lady Chargers' lead to 7-1. A pair of errors by the La- dy Lions in the sixth inning set up a run-scoring single by Sorgius that extended Pike Central's lead to 8 -1. Sorgius went the dis- tance for the Lady Char- gers, allowing one run on six hits while striking out nine. For the game, Sorgius stranded six runners on base, including four in scor- ing position. "Peyton pitched real well and got out of some jams," said Weisman, whose team improved to 2-0. "We made plays behind her. About the only good ball that they hit was that home run, and that was an obvious home run. But Peyton kept the ball down, she kept it low on them. If she keeps the ball down and keeps the batter off balance, they can't get a good swing on it." Barnes went 3-for-4 with a double, scored one run and drove in two. Stone went 2-for-4 with a double and a walk, scored one run and drove in three. In the junior varsity game, Loogootee third baseman Jaelyn Walk- er belted a pair of one-run doubles to lead the Lady Li- ons to a 5 -2 victory. Sophomore centerfield- er Alexis Englert led Pike Central offensively, going 2-for-2 and scoring one run. Sophomore Alizé Padgett took the loss for The Pike Central Mid- dle School softball team has opened its season with home wins over South Knox on Monday, April 2, Jasper on Wednesday, April 4, and Forest Park on Mon- day, April 9.

Patoka River NWR in spring prescribed fire season The Patoka River Na- tional Wildlife Refuge (NWR) in Oakland City has entered its spring prescribed fire season. The spring prescribed fire season typically runs between February and April 15. During this time frame, smoke may be vis- ible above the Refuge. Prescribed burning on the refuge is conducted to improve wildlife habi- tat and reduce the accu- mulation of fuels that lead to severe wildfires. Pato- ka River NWR has his- torically treated between 500 and 700 acres annu- ally with prescribed fire. A prescribed fire during this time period is espe- cially productive for hab- itat management and brush control. Patoka River NWR staff have informed local officials of the planned management actions. Prescribed fire will only be conducted when con- ditions allow for safe im- plentation. Any ques- tions concerning the pre- scribed fire season may be directed to Refuge manager Bill McCoy or Fire Management Offi- cer Brian Winters at 812- 749 -3199.
