Brownstown edges out Charlestown

The Brownstown Central softball team had an impressive win at Charlestown on Tuesday night, coming back home with a 6-5 victory.

Charlestown made a late comeback, putting up two runs in the bottom of the seventh, but the Braves were able to hold them off just enough to get the one-run victory.

Erin Singleton and Stuckwisch had two RBI each, and Emily Singleton had one RBI.

The Braves will be at Mitchell today and have a rescheduled game Saturday at home against Trinity Lutheran for Senior Day.


Crothersville competes at South Central

The Crothersville boys golf team play against South Central and Henryville on Wednesday afternoon.

Matthew Clouse shot a 68 and Andrew Stainbrook shot a 69. Since Crothersville only has two golfers, the Tigers don’t account for a team score.

South Central edged Henryville in 262-266 in the team scores.

The Tigers will be competing in the Southern Athletic Conference match this Saturday at Champions Pointe Golf Course at 12 p.m.
