H.S. BASEBALL: Indians set to face familiar opponent

(Continued)

RICHMOND — Southern-Station

The Eagles begin the season by losing 10 straight and at one point the team’s record slipped to 3-26.

But, Southern has finished strong.

The Eagles won three of their final four regular-season games and earned their first trip to the 11th Region Tournament since 2007 with a victory over Berea Community in the district tournament semifinals.

Southern did not play Bryan Station this season and the school’s haven’t played since 2008.

“It doesn’t really matter to us,” Southern coach Dusty O. Hon said. “Whoever we play, we are just going to buckle down and do the best we can. We are just happy to be here.”

Station finished the regular season by losing four-straight games.

But, the Defenders defeated Henry Clay 5-4 in the first round of the 42nd District Tournament and then upset Scott County, 6-3, in the title game.

“I know they are always a good team, so we are going to try to find out as much about them as possible,” Hon said of Station.

The Eagles started sophomore Griffen Norris on the mound in the district semifinals against Berea, then pitched Lucas Reynolds in the district title game.

Freshman Easten Shouse also pitched in both district tournament games.

“We will probably go with Griffen,” Hon said. “He’s our horse.”

The winner of the Southern-Station game will advance to the semifinals to take on Tates Creek (30-6) or Franklin County (15-23) at 5:30 p.m. Tuesday.
