Tippecanoe Valley Baseball 14, Maconaquah 5
Valley returned to the field for the first time since its teammate lost his life, and perhaps did him proud Monday evening in Bunker Hill.
Valley (11-7) scored three runs in the first, another in the second and seven more in the third to overwhelm Maconaquah, playing in the honor of Brendyn Stump, who passed away Monday.
Stats for the game were not provided. Valley plays at home Wednesday against No. 1 Southwood.

Elkhart Softball 15, Warsaw 1
Once Elkhart got the wheels moving, there was no stopping the Lions in Tiger Town.
A 3-1 Elkhart lead into the fifth got much bigger with a six-run fifth, then after a run in sixth, scored five more in the seventh.

Warsaw managed just two hits, Makayla Holder scoring the only run on a Kali Ousley RBI.
Wade had 10 strikeouts in the circle for the Lions, Tori Tackett punching out eight of her own for the Tigers (15-6), but allowing eight hits and nine runs in five innings.
