Elwood rolls past Liberty Christian

ANDERSON — While most people were aware that Elwood had 22 hits, 19 runs, 11 extra base hits and four home runs, most failed to notice that pitcher Tenasha Stephens tossed a no-hitter in the process.

The junior hurler didn’t allow a hit in five innings while striking out four batters and allowing just two walks and three runners on base as Elwood defeated Liberty Christian 19-1 on Friday in Anderson.

“She hasn’t thrown a lot, but last year she did throw in five or six games,” said Elwood coach Chris Noone, who rested his ace pitcher (Mackenzie Bryan) after she had thrown more than 250 pitches in the tournament’s first two wins on Wednesday and Thursday. “A couple of those games she didn’t give up very many hits and I wasn’t worried one bit. I knew she was very capable and mentally she is a tough kid.”

Leadoff hitter Katelyn Leisure led the Panther offense, collecting four hits, four runs and two RBIs, including two doubles and a home run.

Jessie Noone also had four hits, four runs and two RBI, including a home run, and Haley Jetty added three hits, two runs and four RBI, including a home run and a triple. Taylor Noone had the other home run for the Panthers.

Jessica Taylor had two hits, two runs, three RBI and Bryan chipped in with two hits, two runs and an RBI.

“I know they can hit because I pitch to them and I see how far they go in practice,” said Noone. “Our top four hitters have (a home run) and all nine have the power to do it.”

The loss was the second of the season for the Lions and they will play in the third place game on Saturday at Pendleton Heights against Frankton at 2 p.m.

“That is a good hitting team,” said Liberty Christian coach Dan Russell. “We are a 1A school and we are going to be alright. You can’t catch balls when they go over the fence.”

Elwood (4-0) will play Pendleton Heights winner in the championship game at Pendleton on Saturday at 4 p.m.

  • SPT - HB0725 - Colts Camp - 007 CB Darius Butler holds tight to No. 20 The number 20 has grown to mean something to Darius Butler. The former second-round pick was running out of chances when the Indianapolis Colts signed him during the 2012 season. Eleven starts and eight interceptions later, he’s ingrained as the team’s slot cornerback — working under the final season of a two-year, $4 million deal.
