(Union Mills, IN) - The boys’ baseball team at South Central High School has advanced to the semi-state. The Satellites won the regional championship in Class 1A Saturday by defeating Caston and Fremont.
South Central (21-9) will play Lafayette Central Catholic (25-6) for rights to advance to the state finals. The semi-state match up will be played at Schreiber Field in La Porte at 11 a.m. (CST)
South Central High School Principal Ben Anderson said the Satellites could benefit from playing close to home. Anderson said he also expects a big turnout from South Central fans and, perhaps, some baseball fans from La Porte and other nearby schools.
“It’s obviously not a home-field advantage, but nearly from being as close as we are to La Porte, I think people will come out in droves,” Anderson said.
