FORT WAYNE - Carroll junior Katy Guebard, entering her second season as the starting pitcher for the Carroll Softball team, had no nerves prior to Thursday's double-header against SB St. Joseph's.
Why should she. Guebard succeeded from inside the pitcher's circle in 2012, leading Carroll to a Sectional Championship.
Standing inside the batter's box, however, was foreign territory.
You wouldn't have known it by watching her hit.
Guebard tripled in her first high school at-bat, leading off the third inning of game one. Courtesy runner Courtney Crapser would score on a groundout by junior Mackenzie DiPrimio two plays later, and Guebard would do the rest.

FORT WAYNE - The Carroll Charger Baseball team ended a stretch of seven games in eight days with a double-header sweep of Fishers on Saturday afternoon at Carroll High School.
After starting the season with three losses, the Chargers have run off four straight victories, including Saturday's 3-2 and 2-0 wins over the Tigers.
"If you told me before the start of spring break, given who we played, that we would be 4-3, I would have taken it," remarked Charger Skipper Dave Ginder. "The kids competed well. We played a lot of good baseball against some good teams so to be 4-3, I am pretty pleased with that."

FORT WAYNE - Consider it new territory for the Carroll Girls Tennis team in 2013.
Carroll opened their season on Monday against South Side as the defending Northeast Hoosier Conference Champions for the first time in school history.
No NHC team other than Homestead had ever won the NHC in Girls Tennis until Carroll claimed the prize last spring.
The Lady Chargers boast a ton of experience, as six of seven Varsity starters return this season.
"I wouldn't say there is pressure from outside forces, but we want to defend that and do as well as we did last year if not better," said junior one singles player Rachel Sutton. "We want to continue the way we played last year, build from it, and grow."
