Jags post 1-1-1 record over the weekend

CORBIN — By Les Dixon / Sports Editor

SCOTT COUNTY — North Laurel coach Darrin McWhorter knew his Jaguars were going to be in trouble for the remainder of the Frank Shoop Invitational after playing Scott County to an 11 inning, 8-8 tie, during the invitational’s opener.

With some key games ahead for the remainder of the week, the 11-inning contest against the Cardinals handcuffed McWhorter pitching-wise the rest of the way in the invitational, but North Laurel still managed to go 1-1-1.

“Overall, I was happy with the way things went,” he said. “Of course you’d like to come out of there with some more wins, but to go 1-1-1, I’m happy with that. We played some very good competition.

“After the game against Scott County, we knew we had games against Knox Central, Hazard and Clay County coming up, so we knew we had to save some of our pitching,” he added. “We managed to get by.”

North Laurel picked up its first win of the invitational by handing Owen County an 8-4 loss. Both teams battled throughout the first five innings and it wasn’t until the sixth inning when the Jaguars (15-10-1) broke the game open thanks to a three-run double by eighth grader Weston Griebel.

North Laurel ended the invitational with a 16-6 loss to Ryle, who is ranked in the top 20.

“Ryle is a good team. We just ran out of pitching,” McWhorter said.
