  • PREP BASEBALL: District schedule gets under way today

    The 17th District baseball race begins today with a pair of games, but coaches are quick to point out it’s not the start that counts as much as the finish.

    “I always tell the boys the baseball season is a marathon, not a sprint,” Central Hardin coach Todd Thompson said.

    Central Hardin has heeded Thompson’s words in the past quite well. The Bruins have won the last two district tournament championships and they’ve appeared in four consecutive title games and five of the last six.

    A senior right-hander, Creamer struck out a whopping 19 batters and was a walk away from perfection to lead the homestanding Bulldogs to a 3-0 win over 5th Region rival Nelson County.
