Local High School Sports Recaps For Thursday, May 23

May 24, 2024 at 6:35 p.m.


Boys Track and Field Regional
Warsaw's 71 points at the track & field regional at Foreman Field in Goshen Thursday left them in 2nd place behind Penn's 96.
But Warsaw still will be sending an impressive crew to the State Finals to IU in Bloomington Saturday.
The highlight of the night was sophomore Jordan Randall, who cleared 7' and then 7' 1/2" to break his own school record and win the regional high jump title by 8 1/2". He's only 5'8" tall. He'll be at the state finals, and so will teammate Talan Asay, who jumped 6'4" to finish 3rd and also meet the state standard.
Kameron Kauffman continued his domination of the throwing circle, winning the shot put with 55'10" and a 2nd place finish in the discus. He advances in both events.
Jackson Gackenheimer won the 3200m in 9:19.
Blake Keene advanced in the 110m hurdles with a 3rd place finish, but missed out on the 300m by :00.05.
And the 4 x 800m Relay team of Tyler Mimnaugh, Clark Meridew, Rick Orr and Tyler Swartz finished 3rd.
Matt Marsh just missed out on advancing, taking 4th in the pole vault. Manchester’s Carson Heath missed out on qualifying for the 110M hurdles by 0.3 seconds.
Tippecanoe Valley’s Wade Jones will also be heading to state after finishing third in the 200M dash.
The State Finals will be Saturday, June 1 at the Robert C. Haugh Track and Field Complex at Indiana University in Bloomington.
Girls Tennis Regional
Warsaw competed in two different matches in the IHSAA Girls Tennis Individual Tournament at the NorthWood regional Thursday night, getting one win and one loss.
No. 1 singles player Addie Lind is still undefeated and now 25-0 this season after defeating Fairfield’s Addison Mast 6-3, 3-6, 6-2 to win the individual sectional title and advance to the next round of the tournament. Lind will compete at LaPorte on June 1 against the winner of the Culver Academies Individual Sectional.
In the realm of doubles play, Claire Reichenbach and Clara Porter saw their season come to an end at the hands of NorthWood’s Emery Porter and Kaydence Dumka in three sets, losing 6-3, 2-6, 3-6. Congratulations ladies on a terrific season.
Softball Sectionals
Tippecanoe Valley vs. Rensselaer Central

The last of the remaining area softball teams fell on Thursday night, as Tippecanoe Valley lost 4-0 to Rensselaer Central in the semifinals of the Kankakee Valley sectional. The Lady Vikings end the season with a 10-12 record.
Kahlyn Manns had two hits in the game while Mackaylie Costello had one. Dalynne Bussard struck out seven on the mound, giving up two earned runs on the mound.
Valley, as well as the rest of the area’s softball teams, will return next season.
