Harrisburg claimed the girls championship in the team standings with 89.5 points, finishing ahead of Fayette’s 85 points. The Fayette boys finished in second place for a fifth-straight year at the CMS Relays, scoring 108 points and finishing well behind Columbia Catholic’s 185.5 points.

Two-for-one special: New Franklin baseball beats Sturgeon, Pilot Grove
When the second round of the MHSBCA state rankings surfaced on the Internet on Monday morning, the New Franklin baseball team found itself atop the Class 1 rankings, a position it will hold for at least the next two weeks.
Just hours later, defending that No. 1 state ranking became the first order of business for New Franklin. The Bulldogs traveled to Sturgeon that afternoon for a doubleheader of makeup games, both against state-ranked opponents: Class 2 No. 5 Sturgeon and Class 1 No. 6 Pilot Grove.
In four hours, New Franklin proved it was not only the best team this spring in the Central Activities Conference, but also the No. 1 team in Class 1 District 10. The Bulldogs knocked off Sturgeon and ace pitcher Tanner Sandker 5-2, then held off a late comeback from Pilot Grove to win the second game 8-6.
