FT. MADISON — Washington High School baseball split a Southeast Conference doubleheader Tuesday, taking the first game 10-4, then losing 9-1 to the Bloodhounds.

“It was a dissappointing night,” WHS coach Nathan Miller said. “We hit really well in the first game. In the second game, we struggled to throw strikes and our bats went quiet.”

Mitchell Driscoll got the win with 2 1/3 innings pitched, five hits, two runs, a walk and five strikeouts. Kole Hinrichsen threw 1 2/3 innings with five strikeouts. Cade Hennigan went 3 for 4 while Luke Turner, Brady Knutson and Trevor Quigley all had two hits apiece. Quigley hit two doubles and Knutson one.

The Demons had four hits in the loss and Hennigan had two of them.
