BOURBON â€” After Westville ace Ashley Henrich shut out Triton in last yearâ€™s sectional championship game, the Trojans knew what they were up against.
On Tuesday, they were ready.
Triton batters took an aggressive approach at the plate and on the bags, and the Trojans surprised Henrich and the Blackhawks with 15 hits, earning a 9-6 upset of No. 5 Westville in a Sectional 51 semifinal at home. The win was a reprisal for last yearâ€™s final, when the Blackhawks handed their hosts a 7-0 win for the schoolâ€™s first-ever championship.
BOURBON â€” Argos fell behind early and never recovered in a 12-2 Triton Sectional loss to South Central Tuesday.
BREMEN â€” A fluky timing glitch created a 45-minute delay at the Bremen Girls Track Regional Tuesday.
Culver Girls Academy senior Waverly Neer tried her hardest to put the meet back on schedule.
Seeded faster than the state standard in the 1600 and 3200, Neer blistered the field and the regional record in both races to qualify for the state finals.
Altogether, eight area athletes advanced to the June 4 state finals at the Robert C. Haugh Track and Field Complex at Indiana University, Bloomington.
