The Jasper baseball team, a perennial power in the Hoosier State, ended a four year state championship game drought, mauling the Marauders of Mount Vernon-Fortville in five innings, 17-2 at Ruxer Field in Jasper Saturday afternoon.

After giving up two runs in the top of the first, the Wildcats struck for four runs in the bottom of the opening frame, ledt by junior third baseman Connor Foley's RBI double to deep left-center.

Jasper would erupt for eleven runs in the second inning, sending 15 batters to the plate, effectively ending the game.

The Wildcats wil make their first appearance in a state title game since 2017, when they take on Munster in the 4-A title game at Victory Field, at a date and time to be announced.

We woke up to dry and cold conditions this Tuesday morning. Unfortunately, there won’t be any drastic changes this afternoon. Increasing cloud cover will be likely as a cold northerly flow continues ushering in chilly air. Highs won’t be going very far, we’ll likely only reach the mid to upper 30s Tri-State wide. We’re tracking a little bit of winter weather out to our north and west. Skies will be mostly cloudy tonight with a chance of flurries/light rain. It won't be a big snow by any stretch, but you could see some flurries flying Tuesday night into Wednesday morning around the Tri-State. Don't expect more than a dusting, with greater chances falling north of I-64.
