Bases-Loaded Walk Lifts Lake Central in 12-Inning Marathon

Anna Kayser, Special to IHSAA.org INDIANAPOLIS - It took a while – 12 innings in 3 hours and 46 minutes, to be exact, as the longest game by innings in IHSAA State Finals history – but a bases-loaded walk to Lake Central lifted the Indians over the Mooresville Pioneers on Saturday night at Victory Field, 2-1. With the game knotted at 1-1 in the 12th inning, pitcher Hogan Denny’s gem of 8.2 innings and 12 strikeouts in relief ended with a two-out, full-count walk. Hudson DeVaughan entered and worked deep into counts, walking his first of three consecutive batters on eight pitches. “We had a detailed report on Mooresville… Our approach was ‘take until you get a strike,’”...

Gavin Jackson throws first no-hitter, Providence takes 2A crown

Rich Torres, Special to IHSAA.org INDIANAPOLIS – Providence’s Gavin Jackson took the mound for the bottom of the seventh inning on Saturday completely oblivious. Astutely aware of his team’s nine-run lead over two-time defending Class 2A state champion Illiana Christian, all the sophomore knew with any certainty was he needed only three more outs to clinch the program’s third state title overall and first since 2021. Everyone else in attendance knew the historical significance involved, however, and it rested in Jackson’s right hand during the 57th Annual IHSAA baseball state finals at Victory Field in downtown Indianapolis. “We weren’t going to tell him. Obviously, us...

New Prairie’s big fourth inning secures first state title

Anna Kayser, Special to IHSAA.org INDIANAPOLIS - Down to his final strike with two outs in the fourth inning, New Prairie sophomore Reed Robinson laced a two-run single to lead the Cougars to their first IHSAA baseball state championship with a 7-2 win over the Brebeuf Jesuit Braves on Friday night at Victory Field. “I was... just trying to do whatever I can,” Robinson said. “Our team has been working for this moment and putting all the practice and work in the offseason into the game. It’s a big situation, obviously, but I love those situations and I love being in those moments. I love the pressure and I’m sure everyone on our team loves the pressure, and that’s what...

Barr-Reeve “finished the job”, wins first baseball crown

Rich Torres, Special to IHSAA.org INDIANAPOLIS – Third time was the charm for the top-ranked Barr-Reeve Vikings on Friday night at Victory Field in downtown Indianapolis. Making their third IHSAA baseball state finals appearance in program history – and second straight – the Vikings (28-6) avenged last year’s heartbreaking 1-0 championship loss and “finished the job” by halting No. 3 Lafayette Central Catholic’s bid at a second Class 1A three-peat. Barr-Reeve junior ace Seth Wagler (8-1) pitched a complete-game and scattered six hits with five strikeouts, while the Vikings’ offense capitalized on five uncharacteristic Knights’ errors to win 6-1 and capture the program’s...
