Kings strike back

Cass softball, baseball teams pick up key MIC wins

Lewis Cass’ softball team jumped out to a big lead and held on for a 9-6 win over Maconaquah on Thursday in Walton.

Megan Carden went 3-for-4 with a double and five RBIs to lead the Kings (8-4, 3-1 Mid-Indiana Conference).

“It was good to see the girls bounce back after the loss against Western,” Cass coach Jennifer Scott said.

The Kings jumped out to a 9-1 lead before the Braves struck for four runs in the sixth and one in the seventh. But the Kings were able to hold on.

Morgan Lowe got the win in the circle. She allowed five runs on 14 hits in six innings pitched. Rachel Lawson closed out the game, allowing one run in one inning of work.

“They hit the ball well. They outhit us 14-11,” Scott said of the Braves. “They’re a good hitting team. Defensively they made some errors.”

Brittany Cunningham and Cheyenne Dittmaier each went 2-for-4 for the Kings. Alexa Humerickhouse hit a two-run double. Kelsey Kile added a double.

The Kings compete at the Twin Lakes Invite this weekend. They face Lafayette Jeff at 5:30 p.m. today at Voigt Park.

Connor Adams fired a six-hit shutout to lead the Kings to a win in Bunker Hill. He fanned eight and walked two.

The Kings (10-3, 2-2 MIC) scored the lone run of the game in the fifth inning. Jake Wilburn started the inning with a walk and stole second. Jake Miller drew a walk and Noah Byers followed with a single to load the bases. Blake Cain followed with an RBI ground out, and Adams and the Kings made the run stand up.

Cass coach Greg Marschand was pleased with how his squad bounced back in league play after losses to Hamilton Heights and Western.

“Western was a really tough loss. We played right with them,” he said. “The kids worked their tails off in practice, and it was good to see them bounce back.

“It was similar to Heights in that we led 1-0 going into the sixth. In that game we had two or three errors, and [Thursday] was a different story. It was nice to see us patch things up. The guys played great defense, and Connor threw fantastic on the mound to get a win.”

Zach McCoy and Austin Clem each added a double for Cass.

Josh Fewell allowed just the one run on four hits for Mac (6-4, 2-1). He fanned eight and walked five. He had two hits at the plate, as did Nick Love.

“It appears this is the way it’s going to be in MIC play every night,” Marschand said of the hard-fought victory.

Cass hosts Culver Academy at 5 p.m. tonight.
