> SOUTHERN INDIANA — New Albany picked up two solid wins in its split doubleheader Saturday in Evansville at famed Bosse Field.

New Albany started its day with a 12-1 beating of Class 2A No. 6 ranked Evansville Mater Del.  The Bulldogs capped it off by squeaking out a one-run victory over Evansville North, 9-8.

“Those were two really good teams,” Bulldog coach Chris McIntrye said. “Outside of the sixth inning in the North game, we played really well.”

In the first game, New Albany received a gem from ace Brandon Johnson, who was brilliant through six innings of work. He walked two and gave up one earned run on four hits while striking out 10.

With 19 hits against the Wildcats, many Bulldogs shined at the plate. Every starter in the lineup had at least one hit during the triumph.

Jack Shine led the charge, going 3-for-4 with two doubles and four runs batted in. A.J. Nixon also was 3-for-4 with two doubles and drove in two. Matt Sogge was 3-for-5, Brady Parr went 2-for-4, Timmie Redford had a 3-for-4 performance and Tanner Robinson was 2-for-4.

In the second game, New Albany and North traded big innings throughout the contest, but New Albany struck last in the seventh to pull out the 9-8 victory.

Tanner Goller started the second game for New Albany, going five innings before being relieved by Nixon.

New Albany’s bats stayed hot for the second game and helped carry the Bulldogs to the win. Jack Shine continued his strong game by going 2-for-4. Brady Parr was 3-for-4 with two RBI. Joey Collins and Nixon both went 2-for-4 and Timmie Redford added two more hits to his afternoon going 2-for-3.

The wins put Class 4A No. 5 New Albany at 15-2 on the season. It will look to stay hot Tuesday when it hosts North Harrison.

GIRLS’ TENNIS

The ninth-ranked Floyd Central tennis team came out of the Zionsville Invitational with three more victories and state title hopes.

The Highlanders took the Zionsville crown after solid victories over Center Grove, No. 16 Zionzville and No. 22 Brebeuf.

“Just like I told you on Friday, if we win these three games we were for real,” Floyd Central coach Rick Miller said. “We are real contenders to get deep in the state tournament.”

Floyd’s singles players dominated the tournament, winning every match of the day. Giorgia Rosetto, Dana Frank and Alexis Aplegate combined to win all 18 sets they played.

The first two matches were close with Floyd Central edging Center Grove and Zionsville 3-2.

The last match against Brebeuf was the Highlanders’ best performance. Along with the singles victories, Emily Stock and Kailyn Little earned 3-6, 6-3, 10-6 victory over Willa Sassu and Regan Wagner to give Floyd a 4-1 advantage.

“The girls are really happy with the wins,” said Miller. “I’m a perfectionist, so I still see things we need to improve on, but that was three pretty good teams, so it was three pretty good wins.”

Floyd Central will be back in action on Tuesday as it hosts Castle High School.
