Jets too much for Mohawks
HOPE — Hunter Crain and Sydney Schoen combined on a one-hitter Thursday to lead Class A No. 2 Hauser to an 11-1, five-inning Mid-Hoosier Conference win against Waldron.
Mykenzie Ault and Tessa Sims each had two hits for the Jets (9-2, 5-0). Hailey Lange had two RBIs.
The news wasn’t all good for Hauser, however. Freshman shortstop Katie Taylor, who was injured diving for a ball Friday against North Decatur, was diagnosed with a fractured rib and will miss about three weeks.
