WHITING â€” Thereâ€™s not much you can do against a team that is hitting over .400 this season.
Thatâ€™s what would ultimately be the Bremen Lionsâ€™ demise, as they came into the Class 2A Whiting Regional riding high after their Westview Sectional triumph with an 8-0 win over Churubusco and an 8-7 win over Westview in the final.
But unfortunately for Bremen, it ran into a finely-tuned hitting machine in Fort Wayne Luers Sectional winner Adams Central, who pounded out 14 hits on its way to an 11-1 six-inning rout of the Lions on Saturday afternoon in the first regional semifinal at Whiting.
BLOOMINGTON â€” Say this for Leah Heckaman: Sheâ€™s got a positive attitude.
Even though Heckaman had to face one of the toughest fields in years in the weight events, including a new state record holder in the discus, the Culver Academies junior was all smiles following Saturdayâ€™s IHSAA girls state track finals.
â€śI had a good day,â€ť said Heckaman, who finished fifth in the discus and 10th in the shot put. â€śI knew what I wanted to do, and even if everything didnâ€™t go perfect, Iâ€™m satisfied.â€ť

The Eagles were able to win the draw and run the clock down to 39 seconds before turning the ball over, but goalie Clair Fay gathered up the Carmel shot and ran out the clock to preserve the win.
