Loogootee, Barr-Reeve in tourney

LOOGOOTEE — Loogootee was runner-up at its own invitational Saturday at Loogootee, while Barr-Reeve won the consolation match.

The Lions defeated Sullivan in their opener, 3-2, but lost the final to Bloomfield, 4-1. Coach Rick Graves said he was happy with the progress his team is making.

“One of our goals is to win our own invitational but Bloomfield has a very good, deep team that we couldn’t overcome today,” Graves said. “I was pleased with the way we played them however. When we played them earlier in the season, they handled us pretty easily. (Saturday), our scores were much more respectable, which shows that we’re making progress as the season goes on.”
