Knights earn diamond split at South Vermillion

Wednesday, May 7, 2008

Staff Report

CLINTON -- One Northview team returned home from Clinton with a victory on Tuesday night.

The Knights' baseball team scored a run in the seventh inning to take a 4-3 Western Indiana Conference win over the Wildcats.

The softball didn't fare quite as well as Nikki Fuqua held the Knights scoreless in a 1-0 victory for South Vermillion that kept them unbeaten in the WIC.

For the baseball team, Ryne Barr doubled and tripled in a 3-for-4 night and Keaton Robertson was also 3-for-4 with a triple for the Knights. Nick Lancaster added a double.

The Knights scored three runs in the first inning on a triple by Barr and Nick Lancaster reached via an error. Robertson singled both runners home.

Cody Crooks followed with a single and Kyle Pestoff singled the third run home.

In the softball game, Sondra Blake scored on a suicide squeeze bunt by Fuqua in the fourth inning for the game's lone run.

Northview had just two hits in the game, a single apiece by Shelby Colson and Traci Sanders.

The lack of scoring spoiled a strong pitching performance by Katie Smith who had eight strikeouts and allowed just three South Vermillion hits.

The loss drops Northview to 9-9 this season and 3-1 in the WIC.
