Bears drop games at Muhlenberg, Owensboro

Shortstop Madeline Drake makes the falling catch

Butler County (1-1) found itself on the wrong side of the score on Monday night at Muhlenberg County in prep softball action.  In the varsity game, Butler County's bats were outmanned by Mustang pitcher Nikki Peveler as the Bears fell 7-0. 

In the junior varsity game, defensive woes proved to be the difference in the game as Butler County errors contributed significantly to a 10-2 loss.

The Mustangs plated three runs in the second, three more in the third and another in the 5th for the 7-0 varsity win in an 11-hit outing.


BC Softball battles from behind for 5-4 10-inning tie-breaker win at Apollo

In its season opener, the Butler County High School Bears' softball team won an extra inning barn-burner, defeating the Apollo E-Gals 5-4 in ten innings at Owensboro.  

The Bears fell behind 3-0 early before rallying to tie the game 3-3 in the 5th inning.  With two outs in the inning, Jazmin Reynolds reaches base on an error; Amy Rogers then singles and Madeline Drake took advantage of another Apollo defensive mistake to load the bases.  Natoshia White then rocketed a 3-2 pitch over the head of the E-Gal right-fielder to clear the bases and tie the game at 3-3.


BC Bears Softball Rebuilding in 2012

The Butler County Bears softball team - 2012 edition - is optimistic about its upcoming season despite losing three starters to graduation, as well battling the injury bug during the preseason.

Gone in 2012 are first baseman Taylor Manning, centerfielder speedster Lindsey Blair, and three-time All-State pitcher and current Murray State player CheyAnne Gaskey.  But, this is not a team that is savoring its past success but rather is focused squarely on the future.
