HIGH SCHOOL ROUNDUP: Hudson, Highlanders win Sunnyside Classic

Hudson, Highlanders win Sunnyside Classic



• Carrier, Baker lead Devils to 3-1 victory: Brooke Baker scored a first-half goal to pull Jeffersonville even with Butler (Ky.) and Devan Carrier scored a pair of second-half goals as the Red Devils earned a 3-1 road victory.

Jeff gave up an early goal before Baker equalized with an unassisted goal late in the half to even the score at the half.

“Brooke was a defender and we moved her to forward. She got the goal back after they scored and that made a big difference in the rest of the game,” Jeff coach Scott Epley said.

Carrier then scored eight minutes into the second half to give the Devils the lead for good. She added a second goal three minutes later.

“The goals Devan scored are exactly what we’re looking for from her,” Epley said.

On Tuesday, the Devils and Jennings County played to a scoreless tie in Jeff’s Hoosier Hills Conference opener.

NEXT: Jeffersonville (2-1-1) host Seymour, Tuesday.


• Floyd falls to No. 13 Trojans: Floyd Central’s No. 2 doubles team of Austin Ivey and Alec Saxon defeated Center Grove’s Alex Sorley and Drew Waltermann 6-2, 6-2 on Wednesday.

However, 13th-ranked Center Grove won at the other four spots for a 4-1 victory.

“Alec and Austin really worked well together,” Floyd Central assistant coach Brandon Miller said. “They were under control. They’re a brand new doubles team and they’re working hard. The whole team is working hard. We’re getting really close to a breakthrough win.”

NEXT: Floyd Central (1-4) at North Central Invitational, Saturday.

• New Wash stays unbeaten: New Washington earned a 4-1 victory over Southwestern to move to 2-0 on the season.

The Mustangs swept the singles events with Jake Zimmerman, Logan Miles and Miles Matthews all taking straight-set victories.

“It was a win but it sure did not come easy,” New Wash coach Wayne Davis said. “We just need to learn how to close out matches when the opportunity is there.”

NEXT: New Washington (2-0) at Charlestown, today.
