CINCINNATI HIGH SCHOOL REPORT


MND senior breaks out of slump

The Cincinnati Enquirer

        Amanda Schneider brought a .156 batting average into Wednesday's game against Mercy, but the Mount Notre Dame senior belied that statistic against the Bobcats.

        Besides driving in the winning run with a double in the bottom of the eighth inning, Schneider went 4-for-4 with three RBI, giving the Cougars a 4-3 victory in Girls Greater Catholic League play.

        “It's been a tough year for Amanda,” MND coach Mary Von Bargen said. “She's been struggling all season but has kept going to the batting cage to take extra hitting practice.”

        Mercy scored one in the top of the eighth to take a 3-2 lead. Tracy Weinheimer led off the bottom of the inning with a single and advanced to third on Lindsay Jordan's single.

        A wild throw on a pickoff attempt allowed Weinheimer to score, tying the game. Schneider then came through with the double to win it.

        • St.Ursula 1, McNicholas 0 — Jill Chappel scored on a single by Abby Moelnar in the second inning for St. Ursula.

        • Taylor 5, Wyoming 4 — The Yellowjackets took a three-game lead in the Cincinnati Hills League with five games remaining.

        Veranda Hoffman's single drove in Jess Bates with the winning run in the ninth inning.

Baseball
        • St. Xavier 7, Elder 7 — A victory would have wrapped up the Greater Catholic South title for the Bombers, but Elder's four-run rally in the seventh sent the game into extra innings. Darkness forced suspension after nine innings.

        • Madeira 3, Indian Hill 2 — Kenny Fields did it all for Madeira, striking out 11 while also driving in the game-tying run in the sixth inning.

        Madeira holds a two-game lead in the Cincinnati Hills League with four games remaining.

        • New Richmond 4, Clermont Northeastern 3 — Casey Poynter scored on a wild pitch with one out in the seventh for the Lions.

        • Fairfield 2, Lakota West 1 — The victory kept the Indians within striking distance of first-place Hamilton in the Greater Miami Conference.

        Everitt Hibbard and John Myles scored on a throwing error in the seventh, erasing a 1-0 Lakota West lead.
