Wawasee at New Castle

CONVERSE – Wawasee’s season came to an end Saturday afternoon, as the Warriors fell 9-0 to New Castle in their 3A regional game at Oak Hill High School. The Warriors finish the season with a 13-15 record.

Wawasee was dealt a tough blow before the game even started. Star player and Butler University commit Grant Brooks was unable to play due to an arm injury. The Warriors had a tough task in going against New Castle’s ace and Indiana University commit Aydan Decker-Petty.

Wawasee was only able to manage one base runner in the first three innings, coming on a dropped third strike. Through the first six innings, the Warriors would manage a few more base runners, but no hits. Gavin Malone managed a single on the first pitch of the seventh inning for the team’s lone hit.

Wawasee will return next season.
