The McCracken County High School baseball team, with a 4-2 loss to Lexington Tates Creek on Sunday, finished as state runner-up, a feat no First Region team had accomplished since Murray in 1979. After starting the season 10-7, the Mustangs won 23 of the next 24 games, winning six-consecutive titles in both the Second District and First Region, beating Paducah Tilghman both times. Above, Mustangs catcher Reese Hutchins (11) hits a single in the top of the sixth inning.
