Apollo 12, Grayson County 2 (5 innings)
The Eagles (8-5) scored seven runs in the first inning and never looked back in a five-inning win at home, earning their fifth consecutive victory and seventh in eight games.

It was truly a team effort, as nine different players collected hits and 11 different runners crossed the plate. Jakob Helms was the only player two score twice, and he also had two RBIs.

Dan St. Claire and Noah Stewart also each drove in a pair of runs, while Stewart and Evan Hodskins each recorded two hits. Stewart and Hodskins both doubled, and Helms had a triple.

Winning pitcher Tommy Clark went all five innings, giving up seven hits and also striking out seven while walking only one batter.

The Raiders (4-8) were hot at the plate and used 14 hits to power their way to a six-inning win at home. They scored three runs in the first and added five in the second for an 8-2 lead, and a three-run sixth frame wrapped up the victory.

The offensive effort was led by Kevin Foster (2-for-3, 3 runs, RBI), Mason Mattingly (2-for-3, 2 runs, 2 RBIs, double), Briar Roberts (2-for-3, 3 runs, RBI, triple), Matthew Mills (2-for-3, 2 runs, 2 RBIs, 2 doubles) and Elijah Boarman (3-for-3, 4 RBIs, double).

Trinity 8, Edmonson County 3
The Lady Raiders (3-11) used four runs in the sixth inning to pull away and come out with a 12th District victory at home. Trinity took an early lead with a run in the first frame, then scored again in the fourth to tie the game at 2-2 following a pair of Edmonson County scores.

A couple of extra-base hits in the fifth put the Lady Raiders in front 4-2 before they capitalized on some errors by the Lady Cats in the next inning.

Savannah Aull had two hits and scored twice. Also collecting two hits were Brittany Booker, Avery Barnett and Abby Payne. Katherine Hibbitt drove in three runs, while Booker added two RBIs and a triple. Cassidy Morris and McKenzie Roberts each doubled.

Hibbitt got the win, giving up three runs on six hits and striking out five in 6.2 innings.

The E-Gals (5-7) led for six innings at home, but Tecumseh used a grand slam and seven total runs in the seventh to come from behind to win. Apollo scored two runs in the first and one each in the second and fourth innings before Tecumseh responded with three in the fifth.

The E-Gals were led at the plate by Lauren Whitehouse (3-for-3, run), Hallie Wilson (2-for-4, 2 RBIs, double) and Madison Shemwell (2 runs, double).

Keely Eans took the loss in the circle, giving up seven runs (three unearned) on four hits over the final two innings. Madison Julian went five innings, giving up three runs on 10 hits.
