The Wabash Apache baseball team started the season playing in the Blackford invitational Saturday, April 6.

by Gary Andrews

The Northfield baseball team took their annual spring trip to Southern Indiana this past weekend to kick start their defense of last year’s state title.

After falling to Floyd Central Friday and splitting a double header with Austin Saturday, the Norse returned home with a 1-2 record, which is exactly how they started last year.

On April 5, at Floyd Central the Norse trailed 2-0 heading to the third before they made some noise. An Andy Maggart single, which was the lone Norse hit of the game, was followed by four walks to knot the score at 2.

Floyd Central went on to score seven more runs to hand Northfield the loss. The Norse struggled defensively, committing 4 errors.
