Jets again hoping to soar to state

It was the kind of run that made the Adams Central softball team realize how important a schedule is to a contending team.

The Jets were 20-13 last year, but made it all the way to the Class 2A state championship game before losing 3-1 to South Putnam at Ben Davis.

This season, Adams Central is 10-6 and dropped to 2-4 in the ACAC with an 8-2 loss to Leo on Tuesday.

The big picture remains pretty clear, though, for the Jets.

"From Day 1 (in 2013), that's what we build for," Adams Central coach Cary Blake said. "With the conference we have … these bigger schools and the talent they have, it is a meat-grinder. Most likely, we are not going to win the conference. We have to play for things better down the road."

Adams Central took a 2-0 lead in the second inning against Leo ace Jessica Claxton, but were stymied the rest of the way.

"It is a good game for us facing a pitcher like Claxton," Blake said. "We are going to see girls like that in the sectional, and that's what we play for. We are playing to get ready for that.

"We are heading in the right direction."
