South Spencer, Jasper and Vincennes Rivet all seeking state baseball titles this weekend

All three games will air on Local 7 WTVW

Three Southwestern Indiana high school teams will be playing for Indiana state baseball championships this weekend, and if you can't get to Indianapolis' Victory Field to watch in person, the games will all be televised on CW affiliate Local 7 WTVW starting tonight.

Jasper's Class 3A title game against Norwell leads off championship weekend action tonight at 6:30 p.m. CT (7:30 ET). Jasper is the state's #1 team in 3A, with a record of 32-3; Norwell, at #3, has an identical win-loss record. The Wildcats beat #4 Silver Creek in the regional and #7 Crawfordsville in the semi-state; the team is seeking its sixth state championship.

Vincennes Rivet will play Lafayette Central Catholic in the first game on Saturday for the Class A title; first pitch is set for noon CT (1 p.m. ET). Rivet, 19-12 on the season, earned its second trip to the championship game while topping #5 South Central (Elizabeth) and #6 Rising Sun in their last two games. The Patriots also captured their first sectional since their 2009 state runner-up season.

South Spencer (your editor's alma mater) will take on Northfield at 3 p.m. CT (4 ET) Saturday afternoon in the Class 2A championship game. The Rebels are 22-8 this season, winning the school's 20th sectional championship and fourth semi-state title. South Spencer has been hotter than hot lately, steamrolling their six tournament opponents by an astounding 51 to 7, including an 11-2 road win over #10 Southridge in the sectional.

As mentioned above, all three of these games will air on Local 7, the Evansville affiliate of the IHSAA Champions Network. If you'll be elsewhere in the state this weekend, you can also catch the action on:

  • Indiana's Newscenter (Ft. Wayne)
  • Lakeshore Public TV (Gary)
  • Indiana's 4 (Indianapolis)
  • Indiana's 9 (Louisville Metro)
  • WHME 46 (South Bend)
BEST OF LUCK TO ALL THREE TEAMS!!!
