    Can we get a baseball prediction from you, Mike? Can Garrard’s girls win a second straight softball title?

    Being out of town over the holiday weekend and beyond kept me from seeing your comment before the tournaments began — and from posting any pre-tourney predictions. However, I made no secret of the fact that I picked West Jessamine in baseball, even though that pick doesn’t look so hot now. And I liked Garrard to repeat in softball (and still do now that it’s in the finals) even though the Lady Lions don’t appear as strong as they were a year ago, and consequently the region appeared to be far more up for grabs this time around.
