    When checking the most recent history of the baseball district tournaments and all of the softball district tournaments, anyone is quick to realize the local schools have been quite dominant in post-season play in spring diamond sports.

    Since 1970, there have been only five times that Campbellsville or Taylor County did not finish first in the district baseball tournament (36 of 41 for a percentage of .878), and 17 times in those 41 years they both (like this year) were in the finals.

    Marion County, which won the title in 2003, had hits in every inning but the third and out-hit Taylor County 12-3 as junior Allye Hamilton authored the shut-out.

    The Lady Cardinals’ lone safeties came from Becca Cook (double and single) and a single from Kasey Gribbins.

    The Fifth Region Tournament starts on Monday at Central Hardin High School.
