A Record Night for New Prairie Softball

(Elkhart, IN) - The New Prairie girls claimed a sectional championship in softball and achieved a couple of milestones in the process.


After beating South Bend Clay Thursday night 5-1, the Lady Cougars thumped Jimtown 10-0 on the Jimmies' home field Friday night. Sophomore pitcher Eva Geyer struck out nine batters in five innings of work, giving up only one hit. She also added three RBI. 


It was a record-worthy evening. Derek Hicks notched his 100th win as head coach. And Abby Robakowski hit her 22nd home run, tying a state record. Robakowski's dinger put the team at 50 home runs for the season, the second highest amount for a team in Indiana high school softball history.


The Cougars will host the Class 3A softball regional Tuesday evening.
