Freelance photographer, Mike Kellems, said the game at New Prairie featured a few home runs from Cougar batters.
“Tippy Valley is not a bad team at all. It’s just New Prairie has got all pistons firing right now,” he said.
The Cougars advanced to the Twin Lakes Semi State in Class 3A. New Prairie is scheduled to play No. 8 ranked Hanover Central Saturday at 12 p.m. (central time).
