Jay softball sweeps Woodlan



They weren’t blowouts, but the Patriots continue to win.

The Jay County High School softball team picked up a pair of victories over the Woodlan Warriors on Saturday to remain undefeated in May and extend its winning streak to seven games.

The 7-3 defeat of the Warriors acted as a makeup game from April 27 that got canceled for field conditions. The Patriots’ 7-5 victory in the second game was just an added game.

The Patriots (12-4, 3-2 Allen County Athletic Conference) got started on the right foot as Jaelynn Lykins blasted a two-run home run as part of a three-run first inning.

A bulk of the first game’s offense came from the top four in the JCHS order as Morgan Missicano collected three runs and three hits, while Mallory Winner, Riah Champ and Lykins had two RBIs each.

Winner manned the circle in game one, only allowing one earned run over seven innings.

Jay County needed three runs in the sixth inning to take down the Warriors (12-6, 3-1 ACAC) in the second game.

Back-to-back doubles by Champ and Jozey Shimp gave the Patriots runners with no outs. A Mady Fraley single plated Champ to tie the game at 5-5. Two pitches later, Carlie Trinidad delivered a double to center field to take a two-run lead.

Trinidad also earned the win, despite giving up five earned runs on 10 hits.


Offense silenced

MONROEVILLE — The Jay County baseball team couldn’t secure the win on Saturday as the Heritage Patriots shut JCHS out 7-0.

Brady Richmon dominated on the mound for Heritage (16-2, 4-0 ACAC) by striking out 10 Jay County batters and only allowing two hits.

Ryne Goldsworthy and Leighton Brown collected the only hits for Jay County (11-10, 4-2 ACAC), but couldn’t get anything going in either instance.

Only two of Heritage’s runs were earned, both coming on Richmond’s double in the second inning.

HHS also scored two runs in the fifth inning and three in the sixth.

Zedrian Vazquez suffered the loss after tossing four innings. He gave up four runs on three hits and one walk.


Pats take two

LAPEL — The Jay County girls tennis team took two out of three matches between Friday and Saturday.

The Patriots (7-5) won their home match against Richmond on Friday 3-2, with wins coming from Brenna Haines, Brenna Bailey and No. 1 doubles duo Meredith Dirksen and Sophia Sprunger. Maggie Dillon and No. 2 doubles duo Zion Beiswanger and Lucie Henneaux were defeated.

Jay County split at the Lapel Invitational. It beat the host Bulldogs 3-2 to start the day before Marion took it out 4-1.

Bailey and both doubles teams secured the victory over Lapel. Bailey swept Emma Manning in the No. 2 singles match.

Dirksen and Sprunger needed a tiebreaker and a third set to beat Emily Gooding and Ava Leiter 6-7 (7-9), 6-2, 6-2.

Beiswanger and Henneaux needed a tiebreaker, but not a third set in their 6-4, 7-6 (7-4) victory over Sophia McCrory and Layla Stohler. They also claimed the only win over Marion, as they beat Lilla Fisher and Ravleen Rai 3-6, 6-4, 10-7.
