“Who ya got in the always tough 43rd District Tourney?”
That was the question posed in a Twitter poll by Prep Baseball Report Kentucky before the 43rd District tournament got underway Monday. The breakdown after five-hundred and seventy-seven people voted among four options (the maximum allowed by the service) looked like this:
“45% Lexington Catholic”
“18% Tates Creek”

“We took that personally,” said senior third baseman Devin Buckner, who got things going for LCA early with a two-run homer to right field that gave the Eagles a 3-0 lead after the first half inning. “What are they gonna tweet out now?”
