BASEBALL SECTIONAL DRAW: Floyd Central, New Albany to meet again in 2013

Floyd County rivals to square off in first round of BNL Sectional; Jeff to play Jennings

INDIANAPOLIS — The New Albany and Floyd Central baseball teams have been guaranteed a third meeting against each other this season.

The IHSAA set up the third matchup between the Highlanders and the Bulldogs on Tuesday when it conducted its blind draw for the 47th annual baseball state tournament.

Class 4A No. 10 New Albany (18-6) and Class 4A No. 1 Floyd Central (25-1) will face each other in the second first-round game of the Class 4A Bedford North Lawrence Sectional at about 7:30 p.m. on Thursday, May 23. Seymour will play the host Stars in the sectional opener at 5 p.m. on the 23rd.

The first-round winners will square off in the first semifinal at 10 a.m. on Monday, May 27, which is Memorial Day. The second semifinal on the 27th will be about 12:30 p.m. when Class 4A No. 8 Jeffersonville (15-3) plays Jennings County. The championship will be at 6 p.m. on the 27th.

Floyd Central has won both matchups with the Bulldogs this season. On April 10, the Highlanders defeated host New Albany in the first meeting at Mount Tabor Field, 10-5.

The second matchup happened last week in the opening round of the Hoosier Hills Conference Tournament at Mount Tabor Field. The Bulldogs blew a 2-1 lead in the top of the seventh inning, as Floyd Central scored five runs in the frame to prevail 6-2.

The Red Devils have been on fire as of late. They are on an 12-game winning streak, which is their longest string of victories since 1998. Their latest triumph came last Saturday when they defeated visiting Floyd Central in the HHC Tournament final at Don Poole Field, 1-0. It was Jeff’s second HHC Tourney title in a row.

The Red Devils have defeated Jennings County three times this season, including a 2-0 win over the Panthers in the first round of the conference tourney last week.
