The Class 2A No. 2-ranked Pike Liberal Arts Patriots (22-5) celebrated Senior Night on April 11 with a 10-8 win over the Zion Chapel Rebels (9-14).

Pike led for much of the game, holding on to a 10-4 lead going into the seventh inning but ZCHS began to rally, scoring four runs in the top of the seventh. Pike managed to hang on for the Senior Night win, however.
