With baseball and softball conference play wrapped up, Indian Creek, Hiawatha and Hinckley-Big Rock head into their respective regional rounds of the state playoffs.
Indian Creek softball (13-9) is riding the bats of Autumn Johanningsmeier, Jesika Lowe and Hailey Herrmann, hitting .392, .419 and .338, respectively. The Timberwolves got off to a slow start, losing six of their first seven games. Since that rough opening, the Timberwolves are a stellar 12-3 overall.
“They just worked through it,” Indian Creek coach Jeremy Lowe said. “They practiced, and we got them all hitting. Everyone got their confidence built up, and it started working really well.”
