Iowa Mennonite School took over sole possession of second place in the final standings of the Southeast Iowa Superconference North Division by posting a sweep of the Highland Huskies Friday. In a game heard on KCII, IMS took the 2nd game of the double header in a 12-2 five inning contest after winning a close game one 2-1. The IMS offense jumped on Huskies starter Jacob Tate for four runs, capped with a 2RBI base hit from Cameron Gingerich. Highland starter Jacob Tate was chased in the second. IMS stayed hot in the second scoring five in the frame led by a 2RBI base hit from DH Kyle Brinning. IMS would build its largest lead of the night at 11-1 with two more in the 3rd with the highlight a Marshall Schrock RBI base hit. Highland avoided the early end in the top of the 5th with a two out RBI from Jacob Hootman to make the score 11-2 but IMS ended things in their next at bat when Levi Schrock smacked an RBI double. Schrock took the win for IMS, going all five inning surrendering two runs on two hits, striking out one and walking two. Highland was plagued by five errors in the contest. IMS was led at the plate by Cameron Gingerich and Jason Litwiler who each drove in two on two hits and scored twice. Jackson Brokaw and Marshall Schrock each scored three times. With the win IMS stands at 13-12 on the season, Highland is now 14-9.
