CLARKSVILLE – A good feather in their cap to start the season, Class 1A No. 3 Clarksville bested No. 7 Janesville, 3-0, at home on Wednesday, May 22.

Right in the thick of both Indians’ scoring opportunities was Ainsley Lovrien, who was 1-for-2 with a sacrifice, the latter of which moved runners over after working a pair of walks to start the two-run sixth inning.

Lovrien, who played third base much of 2018, was behind the plate for Kori Wedeking’s six strikeout performance against the Wildcats and could move wherever coach Katie Wedeking needs her this season.

 “She got that blooper and then Chloe (Ross) got the hit that scored (the first run in the fourth),” coach Wedeking said. “She’s definitely a utility player.."
