The Tigers picked up a doubleheader sweep over visiting Tri-County, winning their Little Okaw Valley Conference contests 6-1 and 11-3.

In game one, Hutsonville-Palestine plated two runs in the second inning, then added two more in the third and another in the fourth for a 5-0 lead. Tri-County scored their lone run in the bottom of the fourth, while Hutsonville-Palestine got it back in the top of the fifth and held on for the win.
