Carson comes up big

UK signee goes 3-for-3 while Weston Griebel stifles Bryan Station

CORBIN — By Les Dixon / Sports Editor

NORTH LAUREL — North Laurel coach Darren McWhorter has been preaching to his team to not be so nervous and make the routine play and good things will come.

His Jaguars responded Thursday with an error-free game, improving to 3-2 on the season by defeating Bryan Station, 5-3.

“We’ve just been too nervous,” McWhorter said. “I’ve told them to calm down and just make the play — catch and throw. That’s all we need to do and we did that tonight.

“We made the routine plays, didn’t make any errors and we were able to win,” he added. “We’ve been nervous as a cat on a tin roof early on, but we’ve calmed down and I believe it has shown during the past two games.”

University of Kentucky signee Marcus Carson turned in a perfect 3-for-3 effort at the plate while leading North Laurel with three RBI.

His two-run triple in the second inning gave his team a 3-0 edge and they never looked back.

“Marcus had a great game today,” McWhorter said. “He was perfect at the plate and drove in three runs. He had a single, double and triple. He did a great job for us today.”

Eighth grade pitcher Weston Griebel also turned in a stellar effort for the Jaguars. He tossed five innings while Carson came in relief and wrapped things up during the final two innings of play.

“Weston pitched great,” McWhorter said. “He threw lights out and he’s only an eighth grader. Marcus did a good job, too, and pitched the final two innings for us.”

North Laurel will try to continue its impressive play today with a road game against defending 13th Region champion South Laurel, who is unbeaten at 4-0 on the season.

“They are the top dog,” McWhorter said. “We’re going to go out and see what happens.”

    The word hero is used a little too loosely for my taste these days.
    To be honest, it’s been used way too much for a long time and I’m just as guilty as the next guy.
