SOUTH WHITLEY â€” Whitkoâ€™s softball team grabbed a Three Rivers Conference win Wednesday night against Tippecanoe Valley, 9-1.

Audra Day, Hannah Himes, Aly Nicodemus and Emily Weigold each added a run as well.
Olinske pitched all seven innings with nine strikeouts, one walk and gave up seven hits.
COLUMBIA CITY â€” You know itâ€™s a tough ballgame when the losing pitcher who strikes out the first eleven batters she faces, only gives up two hits for the game and gets defeated 3-0.
Thatâ€™s exactly what happened to the Homestead Lady Spartans when they visited the Columbia City Lady Eagles for a Northeast Hoosier Conference softball game on a wet cold Wednesday evening.
The Lady Eagles parlayed a Spartan error and two hits from the bottom of the order and 14 strikeouts from pitcher Cassie Vodde into a 3-0 win.
