The Indiana Shock 12U softball team played in the World Series at Crown Point last week, going 4-3 in the tourney to place 17th out of 60 teams.
During the tournament there were several skills challenges that team s and coaches participated in. Along with the team pictures are Alison Sites, Gabbie Brewer, and Zoey Ream in a “home to home” timed race that they competed well and finished near the top out of 60 teams. The second photo is coaches Brandon Baker and Todd Sites in a 3 leg race which they won out of 60 teams at the skills challenge.
At the skills challenge on day the Shock team participated in an “around the horn” timed event and took the lead by .75 seconds, but that time wasn’t quite good enough to hold on to 1st place but still finished near the top.

The Wabash 15 & 16 year old all star team used two comebacks in Saturday’s state championship game against Portage to capture and exciting 8-7 win in the bottom of the 7th for the state title.
Wabash fell behind early 2-0 in the first and was down 4-0 in the second when they notched their first run. With two outs Christian Deeter singled and was followed by a Bobby Mettler walk. Zach Ball then singled home Deeter for the first Wabash run as they trailed 4-1 heading to the third.
Wabash would make some more noise in the third after holding Portage scoreless, aided by a diving catch in center from Austin Hostetler. With one out Remington Monce doubled and was drove home on a Matt Cox single. Cox would go to second on the throw home. Jordan Burnsworth was then hit by a pitch to put runners on first and second. Christian Deeter would single home two as Wabash cut the Portage lead to 4-3.
Portage would score three more times in the fourth to extend their lead to 7-3, but Wabash would not lie down. Zach Ball started the inning drawing a walk. With two outs after a strike out and a fly out Remington Monce drew a walk. Ball would then steal third and score on a passed ball. Brandin Frazier then doubled home Monce to make it 7-5 and was followed by an rbi single from Matt Cox to make it 7-6. Jordan Burnsworth then roped a double to bring home Cox to tie the game at 7 heading to the fifth.
Neither team would score in the fifth or sixth to set up the exciting finish. With two outs in the top of the 7th a Portage batter looked as though he had hit a single to right when right fielder Austin Hostetler came up firing to throw the runner out and first for the third out.
Bobby Mettler would lead off the 7th with a single for Wabash and was moved to second on a Zach Ball sacrifice bunt. Mettler would then steal third and on the next pitch race down the base line, long jumping to home plate on a passed ball for the game winner.
