Tom Reck: Valley could be home of some champions

TERRE HAUTE — And the beat goes on … for four teams and two individuals in the final week of Indiana high school sports action.

First up: the boys golf finals to be played today and Wednesday at The Legends of Indiana Golf Club.

Sullivan is in the finals for the first time since 1997 and seniors Drew Cahill of Terre Haute South and Alec Davis of Greencastle qualified as individuals with their finishes in the regional.

Next up: the baseball finals to be played Friday and Saturday at Victory Field in Indianapolis. Terre Haute North is 25-7 and faces 27-8 Noblesville for the Class 4A title on Friday. Game time is 7:30 p.m.

The Patriots knocked off No. 1 Indianapolis Cathedral in the regional and avenged two defeats in beating Castle in the semistate.

Rockville (28-3) and Shakamak (26-6) vie for Class A honors at 1 p.m. Saturday.

The Rox bested the No. 1 Class A team (Frontier) in the regional while Shakamak avenged one of its defeats by beating Vincennes Rivet last week in the semistate.

In the other games on Saturday:

Class 2A — Wapahani (29-4) vs. Evansville Mater Dei (23-9), 4 p.m.

Class 3A — Gibson Southern (24-7) vs. Andrean (30-4), 7 p.m.

Champions were crowned in softball last week before near-record crowds with four schools winning their first state titles in the sport. Results:

Class A — North Miami 1, North Daviess 0, 10 innings

Class 2A — South Spencer 1, Southmont 0

Class 3A — Leo 2, Gibson Southern 0

Class 4A — Bloomington South 6, Hamilton Southeastern 2

It should be noted that North Central lost to South Spencer in the regional and that Clay City lost to North Daviess in the semistate. The Thunderbirds and Eels both had superb seasons.

Our best to teams and players in the finals this week.
