It was supposed to be a night where one of Indiana's best battled one of Michigan's best. It was, but there was a surprise before Niles took on Mishawaka.
In the 1st game of the doubleheader of the Cavemen Classic, Niles faced the Mishawaka JV team. The game went 11 innings, with the JVs pulling off the big upset 1-0. It was just the second loss of the season for Niles. The Cavemen JV team is undefeated.
Niles then went on to face the Varsity team in the 2nd game of the doubleheader. Exact same result--minus the extra innings. Sophomore Breanna Shannon hit a home run in the 4th inning for the game's only run as Mishawaka won 1-0.
The Cavemen are 16-0 on the year. With the pair of losses, Niles drops to 12-3 overall.
