Ward, Young help Hoosier North to win

SOUTH BEND — Logansport High School baseball players John Ward and Baylee Young helped Hoosier North win the Great Lakes Freedom Classic last weekend on the new field turf at Notre Dame’s Frank Eck Stadium.

Hoosier North, a 16-year-old all-star team consisting of players from the area, defeated a field that consisted of teams from Indiana, Michigan, Ohio and Canada.

Ward, who will be a junior, and Young, who will be a sophomore, were the two top pitchers on Logan’s JV baseball team last fall.

Young pitched the championship game and led Hoosier North to a 9-3 victory over the Lake Erie Storm-Schwarzwalder, which hails from the Ohio/Pennsylvania border just below the great lake.

Young, who also plays first base, had a walkoff RBI double earlier this summer for Hoosier North.

In the semifinal, Ward got a three-inning save in HN’s 6-3 win over the Indiana Outlaws. The Outlaws had defeated HN 7-3 in the opening round of the tournament.

Ward, who also plays right field, has allowed no runs on just one hit in 7 1/3 innings on the mound for Hoosier North, striking out seven.

Hoosier North will compete in the Host Area Tournament from July 18-20 and hopes to play its way into the Colt World Series to be held Aug. 1-6 at Loeb Stadium in Lafayette.

Martin, Worthingtonto golf at Jr. state

Golfers Jacob Martin and Bryan Worthington have qualified to play in the Boys State Junior Championships next week at the Bloomington Country Club. The match-play championships, hosted by the Indiana Golf Association, tee off on Monday.

Martin, a recent Lewis Cass grad, and Worthington, who will be a senior at Logansport, both advanced out of a qualifier held last week at Harrison Hills G.C. in Attica. They tied for 10th place with a 6-over 78 to grab the final spots to the state meet at the qualifier.
