HS ROUNDUP: Dragons keep believing, beat Borden in 10

Wilbert fans 15 in Clarksville victory

On Tuesday, the Silver Creek baseball team learned to never stop believing, going on a long journey in beating Borden 5-3 in 10 innings.

The band Journey, that is.

“All season long, my guys have been really into the band Journey,” said Silver Creek coach Neil Coffman. “When they played ‘Don’t Stop Believing’ between innings, we knew good things were about to happen.”

They did, as the Dragons scratched out two runs in the top of the 10th frame and then held off their West Clark rivals for the victory.

Brendan Chwalek picked up the victory on the mound for Silver Creek, who also doubled. Jeremy Blandford doubled and homered in the loss for Borden.

The Dragons will travel to Corydon on Thursday, April 24.

• Clarksville’s Wilbert dominates South Central: Senior pitcher T.J. Wilbert threw a one-hit shutout, leading host Clarksville to a 10-0 win over South Central in six innings. Wilbert went the distance, striking out 15 Rebels and walking none.

The Generals’ Jon Bramer collected three hits and two RBIs. Also for Clarksville (3-6), Keegan Price had two hits and two RBIs and Tyler Merchant smacked two hits.

“It was pretty much all T.J. Wilbert. He was in command,” said Generals coach Brian James, whose team stole nine bases. “We got out of the gates early. We set the tone the first couple of innings.”

Clarksville will travel to Seymour for a doubleheader on Saturday.


• Henryville clubs Trinity Lutheran: The host Hornets got home runs from Ashley Dickerson and Amanda Embry and a big effort on the mound from Kelcey Pierce to dominate Trinity Lutheran, 12-0.

Pierce moved out from behind the plate to toss a one-hit shutout. She also had nine strikeouts.

“We got everyone in and everyone hit the ball well,” said Henryville coach Jenny Odle.
