■ At Urbana. Sunny Singh, Andrew Scaggs, Matthew Scaggs, Wyatt Small and Kevin Kim all won in singles and doubles, leading Centennial to a 9-0 victory against Urbana.
■ St. Joseph-Ogden 10, Unity 0. Dalton Parker (5-0) pitched a three-hit shutout and struck out nine as the Spartans (14-3) beat visiting Unity (13-4). Parker drove in four runs, and teammate Aaron Schluter had three RBI.
The constant on the prep sports scene, it seems, is change.
Earlier in the school year, Maroa-Forsyth announced it’s leaving the Okaw Valley Conference after the 2015-16 school year.
That conference will operate with five schools.
This week, officials at Eureka confirmed intentions to withdraw from the Corn Belt Conference following the 2015-16 school year.
■ St. Joseph-Ogden 2, Unity 0. Cole Berry fanned nine Rockets over seven innings. Zeke Eisenmenger was 2 for 2 for the host Rockets.
■ Central 8, Danville 1. Alec Barger struck out six batters, allowed two hits and did not allow an earned run for the Maroons.

Why he was chosen: Williams won the discus last Wednesday in a three-team meet in Danville and helped the Eagles win their first meet since 2011. Rantoul repeated as meet winner Saturday in its own eight-school invitational, and Williams was a double winner in the shot put and discus.
