Kings edge Purple Tigers

Logan softball beats Kokomo; Winamac thumps Culver

Bailey Gremelspacher scored a three-set victory (6-2, 4-6, 7-5) at No. 3 singles as Cass defeated Northwestern 3-2 in Mid-Indiana Conference girls tennis action Tuesday.

“Neither Gremelspacher nor Kady Whitehead refused to lose at No. 3 singles which made for some very competitive points,” Cass coach Stu Engle said. “They both played an awesome match.”

With the win, the Kings improved to 4-3 overall and 2-1 in the MIC.

“This win is our third straight,” Engle added. “We still have some improving to do but the players at all positions are getting stronger.”

Cass’ No. 2 singles player Ivette Prado came out on top 6-3, 6-2, and the No. 1 doubles team of Kirsten Carbaugh and Khyla Wilson won 6-3, 7-5.

The Kings visit Western on Thursday.


Logansport 5, Kokomo 3

The Berries won their seventh straight game and improved to 2-1 in the North Central Conference with the win at Kokomo.

“We beat a good team,” Logan coach Jim Bacon said, whose squad moved to 11-7 overall.

Bailie Long shut down the Wildkats. The sophomore right-hander allowed three runs (none earned) on just two hits and no walks, striking out five.

“Bailie pitched well tonight. She kept it low and her offspeed was working. She did a fine job,” Bacon said.

Meanwhile, the Berries pounded out 10 hits in the contest. Emily Prentice had three hits including a double and an RBI. Bailey Kelley had two hits. Lauren Pruitt doubled and had an RBI. Jennifer Kreighbaum and Sydney Thompson each had a single and RBI. Kristie Flora and Abbi Zartman added a single apiece.

“We had hits up and down the lineup,” Bacon said. “Sydney Thompson got a squeeze bunt down for a run. Bailey Kelley had a couple hits. Our 3-4-5 hitters are getting runners in and that’s what we need.”

The Berries had one shaky inning defensively where they allowed three runs to score in the fifth that tied the game at 3-3. Bacon said they needed to make sure they at least got the easy out in the inning. But he added improved defensive play has contributed to the recent winning streak.
