Southport High School
Beech Grove High School
Beech Grove lost to Southport 1-0 in 9 innings on Monday night. It was a special Senior Night for the Hornets, in which Kole Aping, Tyler Griffith, Austin Kazee, and Zach Ringham played their final game at Sarah T. Bolton Park. The seniors were honored before the game in front of a good crowd.
For the Hornets on the mound, Kole Aping was as good as it gets, not allowing a hit until the 9th inning. Aping took a no-hitter into the 9th inning before Southport got a base hit to start the inning. Beech Grove had chances in 3 innings with runners in scoring position, but could not get any runs to end the game while Aping was throwing a no-hitter. He also had the lone hit of the night on offense for the Hornets.
The Hornets will close their season out tonight at Lawrence North tonight at 5:30 PM before having a 5 day break. Sectionals start at Danville on Memorial Day for Beech Grove. Tournament details to come soon.
