Braves, Pats dominate MIC weekeend
Are Terre Haute North and Terre Haute South the cream of the Metropolitan Interscholastic Conference high school softball crop, or have their early MIC schedules been skim milk?
Those questions could not be answered definitively after Saturday’s games at Ben Davis, where both Patriots and Braves notched a pair of fairly one-sided wins over the host Giants and Indianapolis North Central.

That answer comes Tuesday, when the Braves play at North — junior varsity at 5 p.m., varsity at approximately 6:30 unless there’s questionable weather, coach Jack Kirchner of the Patriots indicated.
That hasn’t been unusual in recent seasons, and coach Dwayne Stout of the Braves — who beat North Central 8-2 and Ben Davis 7-3 — indicated he would answer the cream question positively.
