In baseball

Bismarck-Henning/Rossville-Alvin 16, Westville 6. Both Asa Ray and Weston Strawser scored three runs to pace the Blue Devils (13-5) in a Vermilion Valley Conference game played at Bismarck. Cyrus Dougherty hit a homer for the Tigers (0-20).

Saturday's prep highlights: Bates shines for Warriors in tournament sweep

In baseball

Fisher's Chittick is going the distance — all the way to the Boston Marathon

FISHER — The path to Lucas Chittick's impending involvement in Monday's 123rd Boston Marathon is unorthodox, to say the least.

That Chittick is competing at all is fairly unique.

The Fisher senior is just 18 years old — the absolute minimum to line up for one of the world's premier 26.2-mile races. Only 26 individuals of the same age finished the 2018 Boston Marathon.

Winds of promise: Small numbers can't keep Sages from speeding to victory

TOLONO — There's not much that can be done to shake up track races such as the 100-meter dash and 100 hurdles.

They're short and succinct, with little room for adjustment.

But there is one thing that can throw a wrench into sprinters' plans.
