BROOKVILLE – It was actually much closer than the 8-0 final score indicated.

Franklin County baseball (4-1), climbing to No. 5 in this week's Class 3A state coaches poll, broke open a 2-0 game with six runs in the home half of the sixth inning to take its Eastern Indiana Athletic Conference opener from visiting South Dearborn Monday night.

Coach Jay Malott's Knights, now 2-2 (0-1 EIAC), wasted a solid pitching performance by sophomore right-hander Wyatt Schwing, who allowed two earned runs in the first inning and scattered five Wildcats hits over five frames, striking out four.

South Dearborn marked eight hits to the hosts' nine, but left 10 baserunners over seven innings, shooting itself in the foot with a total of five errors.

SHELBYVILLE – You just knew it was going to be a rough day for South Dearborn softball in Saturday's single-game trip to Class 4A Shelbyville.

Now 4-0, including Friday's 10-0 EIAC romp at Batesville, Lady Knights eked out a 10-9 win over the host Golden Bears (1-2), surviving a messy outing in which the two teams combined to commit 10 errors.

Long before the win was in the books, however, SD catcher Delaney Murphy took a foul tip off the knuckle of her right index finger in the first inning, which saw the pesky Bears take a 2-1 advantage.

Two frames later, backup catcher Chandler Hoskins took a foul tip square in the facemask, stunning the senior redhead momentarily. Although the on-site trainer's tests cleared a wobbly Hoskins, she was replaced as a precaution, with classmate Morgan Wolfer coming in behind the plate from centerfield.

AURORA – When its season opener was pushed back three days by rain, South Dearborn softball made an April Fools joke of its first-time matchup with Class 4A Columbus North.

Lady Knights, with most of their principal players back from a team that came just two runs shy of replacing Class 3A champion Tri-West in last year’s state title game, hung an 11-1 mercy rule statement win on the visiting Bull Dogs last Tuesday, April 1.

Home runs by seniors Ellen Barrett and Morgan Wolfer paced a nine-hit attack. A three-strikeout complete-game pitching job by classmate Kooper Vertz also set the tone for second-year head coach Tim Barrrett’s SD crew.

“It was a nice season opener for us against a good opponent,” said Coach Barrett. “I thought we looked very confident in our play, both offensively and defensively. That's what you would expect from a veteran team.”

WILMINGTON – The picture was anything but rosy heading into this season for South Dearborn boys basketball, anyway.
Having graduated all five starters from a competitive 9-12 squad a year ago, coach Rick Shumate’s Knights expected to take some lumps, especially in battling the newly-expanded eight-team Eastern Indiana Athletic Conference.

When the off-season saw two of the only three projected returning players with any kind of varsity minutes transfer out, SD’s situation looked dire, indeed.

“We started, basically, with a jayvee team with no varsity experience,” said third-year boss Shumate. “A jayvee team that had won one game the year before. And it showed early.”

AURORA – South Dearborn baseball was a mixed blessing last year.

Varsity Knights, who got 20-year head coach Jay Malott to the 300th career win landmark, finished an eyelash over .500 (14-13) with a wildly varied mixture of veterans (four fourth-year starters, three now playing college baseball) and rookies (the rest).

AURORA – South Dearborn softball coach Tim Barrett’s carefully-worded statement about his team this preseason has been: “This team has a lot of potential.”
