Positively Promoting the Student Athlete Since 1992

The Centier Bank Performers of the Week are Chesterton junior runner Braden Corzan and LaPorte senior softball player Reily Galloway.

After claiming wins in the 100-meter, 200-meter, 400-meter relay, and 1,600-meter relay in last week’s Duneland Conference track and field championship, Corzan repeated his accomplishments in this past Thursday’s Portage Sectional. He won the 100 with a time of 11.17 seconds, the 200 in a time of 22.25 seconds, and was part of the winning 400-relay (42.21 seconds) and 1,600-relay (3.24.06) teams. This helped the Golden Trojans to a second-place finish with 128.5 points behind champion Portage, which had 150.3 points.

In Thursday’s 14-0 blanking of Elkhart Central, the Western Michigan recruit threw a five-inning no-hitter, striking out 12 of the 15 hitters she faced, including the last 10 in a row. She was also 1-of-4 at the plate with an RBI and two runs scored. She also came on in relief to pitch four shutout innings in Monday’ 6-4 loss to South Bend Adams. Then in Friday’s 14-0 shutout of John Glenn, Galloway threw two no-hit innings with six strikeouts and was 2-for-3 with an RBI and a run scored for the Slicers (17-11), who will meet top-ranked Penn Tuesday in the semifinals of the Class 4A Penn Sectional.
