HIGH SCHOOL ROUNDUP: Dragons win tournament

Silver Creek downs Clarksville, Austin to win its invitational


Silver Creek (17-7) racked up victories over Austin (0-20) and Clarksville (13-9) to win the Silver Creek Invitational on Saturday. 

“We played pretty well,” Silver Creek assistant coach Terry Purlee said. “We’re still making a few mistakes that we need to clean up before sectional, but we got two good pitching performances.” 

Silver Creek needed just six innings to blank Austin in the opener, 10-0, before fending off Clarksville for a 7-4 victory in the championship game. 

Casie Toby and Brooke Barnett each went 2-for-4 with an RBI in the tournament-clinching finale. 

Ali Sparkman was 3-for-4 with a double for the Generals, the game’s only extra-base hit. 

Mackenzie Bush took to the circle to down the Generals in the championship game. She struck out four, walked one and allowed three earned runs. 

Hannah Heintzman was 1-1 on the day in the circle for the Generals. In the championship game, she struck out three, walked four, allowed nine hits and five earned runs. 

In the opener, pitcher Audrey Jolissaint powered the Dragons to victory over the Eagles with a no-hitter, and was just a failed strikeout completion away from making it a perfect game. She struck out seven Austin batters in the contest. 

Clarksville reached the championship game by coming back to defeat Henryville, 7-2. The Generals were down 2-0 through six innings, but got to the Hornets for seven runs in the top of the seventh inning. 

Henryville (12-11) won the consolation game over Austin, 10-5. 

Silver Creek hosts Floyd Central on Monday. Clarksville hosts Lanesville on Tuesday. Henryville travels to Charlestown on Wednesday. 



• Borden drops two at Brownstown: Despite a fine defensive day in which Borden committed no errors in 12 combined innings, it still lost both games of a doubleheader at Brownstown on Saturday. 

“In the first game, they got the timely hit when we didn’t,” Borden coach Brian Agnew said.
