Floyd Central falls in softball state semi finals, 5-1 PDF Print E-mail

    Floyd Central’s softball season ended Friday evening, when the Highlanders (23-7-1) fell 5-1 to West Lafayette Harrison in the Class 4A state semi finals at Ben Davis High School in Indianapolis.
    It was the most dramatic play in the offensive book that did it, too. West Lafayette Harrison’s Megan Mitchell hit one over the center field fence with the bases loaded, and the Highlanders were unable to muster any offense after that.
    “We were trying to get back to the top of the (batting) order,” said Floyd Central coach Joe Witten. The Highlanders had batters seven, eight, and nine come up in the last inning, and Witten said “we just couldn’t get another base runner. We dug such a big hole and ran out of outs.”
    Floyd Central hurt themselves with fielding errors throughout the contest.
    “We kicked the ball around and didn’t make routine plays,” said Witten, “but we still had a chance to win as poorly as (we) played.”

Highlanders win softball regional; to play in state Finals Friday at Ben Davis in Indianapolis PDF Print E-mail

    The Floyd Central Highlanders won their own IHSAA Class 4A softball regional Saturday night. The team defeated Plainfield 3-1 in the title game Saturday night, and Columbus North 4-3 in the second semi final game.
    Floyd Central coach Joe Witten’s team will face Class 4A no. 15 West Lafayette Harrison Friday night at Ben Davis High School.
    Floyd Central last won  regional titles in softball in 1994 and 1995, when the tournament was still in a single class.
    Back in 1995, the regionals had Jeffersonville, and other teams of the same Class 4A size. Witten thinks that it is now harder to win a sectional or regional than it was then.
    “Now it’s so difficult,” said Witten of the tournament. “Winning the sectional is a big deal. (And) in our area, the Hoosier Hills Conference has been strong for years.”
    This years’ team at Floyd Central has been a standout for several reasons, not the least of which is the team’s strong belief that they will succeed.
    “This team has believed so much that they can do it. I wouldn’t bet against them,” Witten said. “You can have all of the talent in the world, but if you don’t believe in your coach, or believe and trust in your team mates, it hampers your team progress.”

    The Salem Lions saw one of their best ever seasons in baseball come to an end Tuesday night (June 2), when they fell 7-6 to the Charlestown Pirates in extra innings.
    Salem led 5-3 after a complete inning of play, but the Pirates chipped away slowly and gradually got back in the game.
    With two runners on base in the top of the first inning, the Lions’ Hayden Burton hit to center, and it barely turned into a home run when it went over the fence.
    A single and a pair of walks later, a single by Josiah Farnsley scored the Lions’ Logan Walker and Joe Philpott, giving them a 5-0 lead.
    In the bottom of the first frame, the Pirates came back, scoring three runs of their own.
    Devon Thorstad sent in two runs for the pirates when he hit a single into right field, scoring Cameron Metzger and Matt Hall.
