    BUCKNER — Hundreds of trophies are organized into a section of Dylan Skaggs’ basement. There’s hundreds more plaques somewhere else in the home. He estimates about 400 total.

    He’s a four-time state champion and this Sunday he’s going after a national championship. His sport doesn’t involve a team and a ball or running long distances.

    It’s just Skaggs, a Kawasaki and a lot of dirt.

    CRESTWOOD – Taylor Sheller has a habit of drawing plenty of walks via getting hit by pitches.

    She drew a walk by that method in her first at bat in last Friday’s game at South Oldham. In her second appearance, she decided to be aggressive.

    “I get hit a ridiculous amount of times,” Sheller said. “Then I was like, ‘first pitch, I’m going to take it.’”

    As far back as I can remember, there’s always been something magical about a horse to me. I grew up taking care of them.
