    Brigitte Skaggs had the Green County Lady Dragons on the ropes.

    The LaRue County freshman pitcher had struck out nine batters through 6 1/3 innings, keeping the Lady Hawks in the game against the four-time defending 18th District Softball Tournament champions at Hart County High School on Tuesday.

    Then came the seventh inning.

    Second-seeded LaRue County committed two costly errors – including one that led to the game-winning run – as top-seeded Green County rallied for a 3-2 victory to win its fifth consecutive district title.

    The Elizabethtown Panthers made sure they didn’t leave John Hardin’s field with the same feeling as they did during the regular season.

    The Panthers pounded out 12 hits, senior Cory Farrow turned in a solid performance on the mound and they played flawless defense. It all added up to an 11-1 mercy-rule victory over the Bulldogs in the 17th District Baseball Tournament semifinals Tuesday night.

    First came the lightning. Then came the thunder.

    The Central Hardin Bruins used their quickness to build a lead and then used two home runs to put the North Hardin Trojans away for a 6-0 win in the 17th District Baseball Tournament semifinals Tuesday evening at John Hardin.

    “I wouldn’t say we were tight, but I think we loosened up at the end,” Central Hardin senior second baseman Levi McCamish said. “Tyler (Hinds) did a great job of pitching. But we finally adjusted and caught on. We get another day of baseball.”

    With North Hardin’s season on the line at home Tuesday night, Andrea Whelan and her fellow seniors ensured the Trojans’ season would last at least two games longer.

    Whelan struck out 12 in a complete-game one hitter and Jessica Jenkins drove home Jeanie Carpenter for a big insurance run as second-seeded North Hardin held on for a 2-0 win over the third-seeded Elizabethtown Lady Panthers in the 17th District Softball Tournament’s late semifinal.

    Officially, Jordan Lasley ended Central Hardin’s 17th District Softball Tournament semifinal against John Hardin when the Lady Bruins’ sophomore shortstop hit a walkoff three-run home run in the fifth inning.

    Fort Knox’s long layoff became even longer Monday evening when the Lady Eagles’ 17th District Softball Tournament quarterfinal against the fourth-seeded John Hardin Lady Bulldogs was delayed roughly half an hour because of thunder and lightning close to the North Hardin field.

    Once the game got going however, Olivia Greenwell made quick work of fifth-seeded Fort Knox.

    The John Hardin senior pitcher struck out five of the 15 batters she faced en route to her first career postseason perfect game as the Lady Bulldogs rolled in 4 ½ innings, 12-0.

    Nike used to use an advertising slogan saying “Chicks dig the long ball.” The ladies might like it and the North Hardin Trojans certainly do.

    Ask the current Meade County Green Wave baseball players when the last time the school won a region tournament championship in baseball and the answers are nearly identical, which is not a good thing.

    “I couldn’t tell you,” senior Brenton Smith said. “I have no clue.”

    “I’m not sure,” junior Bo Wilson said.

    “I don’t know if we’ve ever won one,” junior Brady Smith said.
