Lake Central Remains Unbeaten
Lake Central’s baseball team remained unbeaten with a 12-2 victory over Lowell at home Saturday.
The Times No. 3 Indians (4-0, 2-0) scored two runs in the first inning and broke the game open with another four runs in the second inning. The Red Devils (2-1) struggled on the mound throughout the entire game, and it was evidenced by eight walks and one strikeout.
Senior and designated hitter Sean Sullivan led the way for the Indians with three RBIs, while fellow senior Evan Hand recorded one hit and one run batting leadoff. Lake Central coach Mike Swartzentruber said Hand has been focused since the start of the season and is setting a great example for the rest of the team.
“He’s the one guy that’s swinging,” Swartzentruber said. “He’s been hitting everything hard.”
The Indians will take on No. 2 Crown Point (7-0, 2-0) in a home-and-home on Tuesday and Wednesday. The Bulldogs are also undefeated, and senior center Evan Hand is excited for what he anticipates will be a marquee Duneland Athletic Conference match-up.
“CP always gives us a run for our money,” Hand said. “We took both of the games last year, so hopefully we can do the same this year.” — James Boyd
