Floyd Central tennis takes Zionsville title

> 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.
