Season taking shape

Lady Jags tops in girls rankings, while South Laurel holds strong as well

CORBIN — By Les Dixon / Staff Writer

After seeing some impressive baseball, and softball games this past week, this I know — they’re only a handful of teams that will make a run for both the 13th Region baseball and softball titles.

North Laurel is the favorite to capture the 13th Region softball crown after upending defending 13th Region champion South Laurel, while South Laurel looks to be the favorite on the baseball side of things after defeating defending 13th Region champion North Laurel, 4-3.

With that said, there is still a lot of softball and baseball to be played, so who will come out on top in the end?

Who knows?


Player of the Week

Hannah Hart, Corbin — Hart posted a 1-3 record this past week on the mound, but turned in solid efforts in all four games she pitched in. Once again, errors played a big role in Corbin’s losses, but Hart did her part, pitching 22 1/3 innings while allowing only six earned runs. She also 16 batters during the four games.

Clay is beginning to peak

After suffering an 11-1 loss to Corbin, and a 17-0 defeat to North Laurel, it looks as if the Lady Tigers might have turned things around. They are now 7-2 on the season after seeing Leslie Roberts toss a no-hitter during Clay County’s 12-0 win over Bell County.

Eighth-grader is rolling

We all know about both North and South Laurel’s youth movement, but Harlan County also has a talented eighth-grader as well. Lady Black Bear pitcher Destinee Jenkins is now 3-0 on the season after recording her third shutout, while tossing a three-hitter during Harlan County’s 10-0 win over rival Harlan.

What did we learn?

North Laurel has established itself as the favorite in the 13th Region after defeating rival South Laurel this past week, but to be honest, it still remains to be seen just who is the best team in the region.

The Lady Cardinals committed six errors, and allowed no earned runs in the loss while outhitting  the Lady Jaguars, 8-4. South Laurel also left 10 runners on base. If these two teams meet again in post-season play, it’s going to be very interesting to see who comes out on top.


Player of the Week

Connor Leisge, Harlan County — Leisge continues to show why he’s one of the best pitchers in the region, tossing seven scoreless innings while allowing only four hits and finishing with eight strikeouts during the Black Bears’ win over Bell County this past week.
