Athenians set for home opener, Joe Heath Classic

April 5, 2012
Crawfordsville High School

After spending the past weekend in Southern Indiana to participate in the Silver Creek Spring Swing Tournament, the Athenians return to action tonight when they host Fountain Central at 5 o’clock.  The home opener will feature pregame festivities, including a ceremonial first pitch, honoring of the three returning First Team All-State players, and an unveiling of a new 2011 State Champs banner on the outfield wall.

Last season, Crawfordsville detoured to Veedersburg to face Fountain Central on the team’s way home from Nashville, TN.  The Athenians came out on top by a score of 13-3 in a game in which they racked up 13 hits.  Then-junior Craig Brainard pitched the final two innings, walking three and picking up four strikeouts.

The Mustangs’ probable starter is sophomore right-hander Tyler DePugh while the Athenians hope to split up the game in terms of pitching to keep plenty of arms fresh for a busy upcoming weekend schedule.

At 2-2, the Athenians will look to improve their mark and gather steam heading into the Joe Heath Classic, hosted by Lafayette Jeff.  Game one takes place Friday night when Crawfordsville heads to Harrison to take on the Raiders at their home field.  Saturday, the Athenians return to Lafayette; this time to Loeb Stadium to take on #4 West Lafayette at 3, and then Lafayette Jeff immediately following.

In recent action, Harrison dropped their game with 2A #1 Central Catholic (4-0), 7-2 Tuesday night.

In their own home opener, West Lafayette knocked off McCutcheon 3-2 Wednesday evening on the strength of Nick Moody’s pitching performance in which the senior turned in 11 K’s in six frames.

The Lafayette Jeff Bronchos (1-2) dropped their opener in Chattanooga, TN on March 30 to Cleveland High School by a score of 10-3, then defeated Chattanooga Central 9-1, before dropping their second game of the day 5-0 to Goodpasture High School. In their lone win so far, the Bronchos got 6 1/3 innings out of Peter Ripke, who struck out five and allowed only two hits.

Tomorrow night's game as well as all of Crawfordsville's games in the Joe Heath Classic can be seen live via streaming video webcast brought to you here on iHigh.
