• Highlanders third, Pioneers fifth at Bloomington North Invitational: Floyd Central finished third and Providence was fifth at the Bloomington North Invitational on Saturday at the Indiana University Golf Course. Beyer led the Highlanders with a 77, while Crone paced the Pioneers with a 75.

The Braves got singles victories from Abby Ellis, Sarah Hurst and Kendyl Wheatly. At No. 1 doubles, Borden’s Paige Kruer and Morgan Mast beat Bailey Masingo and Hayley Trinkle, 6-3, 6-1. At two doubles, Bailee Kruer and McKenzie Owens rolled past the Pirates’ Suzannah Fielding and Rebecca Keith, 6-0, 6-0.
“The Borden team was the best team we have seen all year,” Charlestown coach Chris Ryan said. “Borden was very good at every position, much better than we could compete for wins against.”
NEXT: Borden (11-0) hosts Providence, today; Charlestown at New Washington, today.
• Mustangs cruise past South Central: Singles players Courtney Amick, Melanie Dieterlen and Ashley Johnson combined to drop only two points in New Washington’s 5-0 victory on Monday at South Central.

• Hornets down Lanesville: Dakota Harrell went 4-for-5 with a double, a home run and six RBIs in Henryville’s 14-7 home win over Lanesville on Monday. The Hornets’ Bailey Hall had a double and a homer, and Henryville’s Cody Reister was the winning pitcher.
“Even though we won the game, we lacked focus for all seven innings and never really had any killer instinct the entire game,” Hornets’ coach Jeff Schroeder said. “If not for our ability to put up some runs, we would have lost this game. Our overall execution on the mound, at the plate and in the field just weren’t good.”
NEXT: Henryville (12-6) at Borden, Wednesday.
• Pirates win Mustang Classic: On Saturday at Edgewood, Class 3A No. 5 Charlestown defeated Seymour in the Mustang Classic championship game, 7-5. The Pirates’ Bethany Hall went a combined 6-for-7 in Saturday’s three games, while teammate Alyssa Price smacked two home runs with one being a grand slam in the title game.
