NorthWood Baseball 18, Plymouth 6
NorthWood (16-6, 10-3 NLC) went no doubt on Plymouth to lay claim to at least a share of the Northern Lakes Conference title.

Jacob Raasch got another win on the hill, allowing three earned in four innings as the Panthers have a home game with Goshen Wednesday, a win clinches the conference outright with Northridge a game back.
Wawasee Baseball 6, Goshen 4
The Warriors moved three games over .500 with the win at Warrior Field.
Wawasee (13-10, 7-6 NLC) used a homer from Parker Young and two RBI from Cole Dolsen to move into a third place tie in the NLC with the RedHawks and Warsaw.
Kam Salazar struck out seven and allowed just three Goshen hits in six innings, Grant Brooks working the seventh for the save.

Warsaw Softball 3, Concord 0
Warsaw (15-5, 10-2 NLC) kept its faint hopes of a shared NLC title alive with a home shutout of Concord.
Tori Tackett tossed a gem, allowing just three hits, walking one and striking out seven. Tackett helped her own cause with an RBI double, and Natalya Holder had two hits, a stolen base and a run scored. Lindsey Bradley also added an RBI in the victory.
Warsaw’s NLC hopes for any title shot would have to come from a twinbill sweep of Mishawaka Thursday and a Northridge loss to winless Plymouth on Wednesday.
