Guggenbiller homer lifts Defiance College



Wins have been hard to come by for the Yellowjackets this season. A two-run home run by Maddie Guggenbiller pushed them to double digit victories on the year.

The Fort Recovery High School graduate delivered a key blast for the Defiance College softball team on Saturday to lift it to a 3-1 victory over Hanover College.

With two outs and a runner on first base in the top of the sixth inning, Guggenbiller homered to give the Yellowjackets (10-20) a 2-0 lead. She finished the game 1-for-3 with two RBIs and a run.

Defiance lost the second game to Hanover 8-7. Guggenbiller managed a walk in four plate appearances.


Jalyn Bruns

FRHS — 2022

Shot a 262 over 27 holes for the IU-East women’s golf team that won the River States Conference Championship at The Resort at Glade Springs on Tuesday.

The Red Wolves won their conference meet with a team score of 987 strokes, while Midway University finished as the runner-up with 995.

Despite finishing with the 17th-best individual score out of 42 golfers, Bruns’ 262 strokes did not affect the team score.

She had 86 strokes in her first and third rounds and shot a 90 in the second round.


Sophie Pearson

FRHS — 2023

Walked in a run in her sole at bat for the Thomas More softball team in a five-inning 16-5 victory over Malone on Sunday.

The Fort Recovery High School graduate got an opportunity to pinch hit in the top of the fifth inning with an 11-1 lead and the bases loaded. She walked to drive in the first run of the inning for Thomas More (14-30). She later came around to score on a groundout.

Pearson also pinch ran on Wednesday, but never came around to score.


Noah Arbuckle

Took the loss for the Huntington University baseball team in game No. 1 of a doubleheader against Indiana Wesleyan.

Arbuckle tossed 6 ⅔ innings for the Foresters (25-18) and gave up 10 runs on 13 hits and three walks. Eight of the 10 runs were earned.

Arbuckle exited the game with the game tied at 8-8, but his replacement, Matt Gilkey, gave up a three-run home run on the next at bat.

Huntington lost the game 13-12, despite scoring three runs in the top of the ninth inning.

Tossed one inning in the Manchester University baseball team’s 6-1 loss to Wabash College on Sunday.
