    When she stepped to the plate for the fourth time Tuesday afternoon, Ashley Nikolao figured she’d be walked again.

    Having reached base all three times against the Hancock County Lady Hornets, the sophomore shortstop wouldn’t have been surprised to be given another free pass.

    Instead, Hancock County junior Mariah Hays tried to jam Nikolao with a high-and-tight fastball on a 3-2 count. Big mistake.

    In the locker of every Meade County player is a sign that reminds the Green Wave of last year’s stinging defeat to the Hancock County Hornets in the 11th District Baseball Tournament.

    Garrett Ledford didn’t want to experience that feeling again.

    Elizabethtown junior Cannon Pender hasn’t had a great year, but with the Panthers’ season on the line, he came through when it mattered most.

    The Central Hardin Bruins know exactly when to get the bats cranked up.

    Central Hardin’s offense came to life at the start of the postseason – much like the last two years – as the Bruins pounded out 14 hits to cruise to a 15-3 mercy-rule victory over the North Hardin Trojans in the 17th District Baseball Tournament semifinals Tuesday evening at James R. Aldridge Field.

  • 11TH DISTRICT BASEBALL...

    From the time Bo Wilson arrived at Meade-Olin Park on Monday afternoon, Meade County coach Todd Clanton knew his senior right-hander was locked in.

    With their season on the line, Wilson threw a gem to lead the Green Wave into the championship of the 11th District Baseball Tournament.

    Wilson struck out 11 and gave up just two hits as tournament host Meade County topped the Breckinridge County Fighting Tigers, 4-1 in the lone semifinal.
