HARTLAND, WI – No. 1 Arrowhead hosted No. 2 Indian Trail on Wednesday afternoon for a battle of the top teams in the state. The story of the game, and this spring has been the rise of Gavin Lux, and that storyline continued to play out on Wednesday. Indian Trail jumped on Arrowhead for an 11-4 victory.

Gavin LuxLux, an Arizona State commit, has continued to see his draft stock rise this spring. Wednesday was no different with numerous front office executives in attendance to see the 6-foot-2, 182-pound left-handed hitting shortstop. Lux has always been known for his work on the defensive side of the ball, with actions and fluidity that is rarely seen in the north. One of the questions was how his bat was going to play this spring, and he has come thru in a big way. In the top of the fifth Lux came to bat with the bases loaded and drove a pitch over the right center field fence for a grand slam. Working with a 10-4 lead in the top of the seventh Lux came up, this time with no one on, and drove the ball over the fence again for a solo shot. He finished the day 2-4 with two homers and five RBIs.

The game was scoreless through three innings with each team mustering only one hit apiece. In the top of the fourth Indian Trail got on the board first as Ryan Hoerter singled to start the inning and Nick Elsen followed with a double. Griffin Klein drove in Hoerter and Elsen with a two out double to give the Hawks a 2-0 lead.

Arrowhead answered in the bottom of the fourth when Jeff Holtz singled to start the inning and after a Nate Brown double put runners at second and third with nobody out. Johnny Duranso grounded out to make it 2-1.

Indian Trail exploded for eight runs in the fifth inning highlighted by the Lux slam and a two run double from Nick Elsen. 

Indian Trail moves to 17-2 on the year and plays again tomorrow against Racine Park. Arrowhead drops to 18-2 and has a big matchup with No. 15 Oconomowoc tomorrow and Friday.
