    After the Jasper boys track sectional, Heritage Hills Coach Pete Lashley proposed a rule change that I think has merit though it did not draw strong support from his fellow coaches - even some who may have benefited from it.

    CANNELTON—Northeast Dubois went through its complete batting order in three of the four innings it batted in a 17-2 baseball sectional semifinal win over Cannelton Friday.
    The Jeeps didn’t really hit the ball hard, as three of their eight hits were infield ones and two more were bloops just over the infield.
    Their only extra-base hit was Owen Fuhrman’s first-inning double to right field, a fly ball that maybe should have been caught.
