    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.

    The Floyd Central girls’ tennis team defeated the New Albany Bulldogs 5-0 Wednesday in the championship game of the Floyd Central girls’ tennis regional. A day earlier, the Lady Highlanders won 3-2 over a tough Silver Creek squad. It was their 11th overall regional title in girls’ tennis, and the
    Floyd Central girls’ tennis volunteer assistant coach Brandon Miller said that the team has been at their best all through the state tournament.
    “All the girls played their best tennis,” Miller said.
    New Albany drew the praise and respect of Miller, noting that with the two schools being big Floyd County rivals and Hoosier Hills Conference foes, the Lady Bulldogs were coming into a “hostile environment”.
    “New Albany always has great teams,” Miller said.
    Miller said that his father, head girls’ tennis coach Rick Miller, was the type who prepared intensely for all teams, not overlooking anybody.
    “Don’t overlook any team,” Brandon Miller said. “We prepare the same way every time. We try to get mentally ready for a grueling match.”
    For example, the first round match with Silver Creek was a close 3-2 win for the Lady Highlanders.
    “It was very close; closer than anybody would have liked it to be.”
