CROWN POINT | Crown Point's youth movement was on display Friday. The Times No. 2 Bulldogs topped No. 3 Munster 2-0 behind the arm of freshman Miranda Elish and the bat of sophomore Rachael Honaker. "I was so nervous (before the game)," Elish said. "But I knew if I came out on my game that we'd win." It was Elish's first high school start and the ninth-grader tossed a seven-inning shutout with nine strike outs against a strong Mustang lineup. She's already verbally committed to play at Oregon. "Everything was working," Elish said. "I threw quite a few bad change-ups, but it threw their eyes off and I'd come back and I'd hit my fastball or my rise."
