Monticello Jumps Out Big Early, Holds of Bloomington Central Catholic in Boy's Baseball Action

Dawlton Chupp allowed four first-inning runs but settled down to go six innings and Monticello rallied early to get past Bloomington Central Catholic 12-8 in Illini Prairie Conference boy's baseball action Thursday afternoon from Monticello.


Prior to Thursday's contest, the Sages took several moments to show support for their fellow athletes in the softball program as the Lady Sages mourned the loss of Chris Oberheim, the Champaign Police Officer killed Wednesday in a domestic dispute in Champaign.


Officer Oberheim, whose daughter Avery is a senior on the softball team, was very involved in the Monticello summer softball programs. 


Chupp allowed four first-inning runs but his offense came to his support with a ten-run first inning.

Tristan Foran and Andrew Rudolph had three hits apiece and Joey Sprinkle drove in three to pace the Sages offense. 


Chupp struck out six allowing just a run after the four-run first. Cole Smith closed out the win allowing three runs in the top of the seventh inning.


Monticello improves to 7-5 overall. They travel to Maroa-Forsyth this afternoon for non-conference action. Hear today's action on 95.9 FM WEZC and online at dewittdailynews.com.
