The Catawba County Easter Baseball Classic enters its 23rd year on Monday at Henkel-Alley Field at the American Legion Fairgrounds.
The tournament, which has become a yearly tradition amongst Catawba County prep baseball teams, starts this Monday and continues through Wednesday.
After being officially approved by the Catawba County Schools Board of Education as the next football coach at Fred T. Foard on Monday night, Tom Harper had one goal in mind.
"Everybody kept telling me that you can't win at Foard," he said. "It made it more attractive for me to go there and make something out of what people thought was nothing."
In a four-way tie atop the conference standings entering Tuesdayâ€™s game, the Maiden girls softball team continued to keep pace.
Behind a pair of two-RBI hits from Ricki Kuhn and Hannah Callahan, the Lady Blue Devils knocked off Bunker Hill at home, 5-1.
Below is a look at Tuesday's prep scores from across Catawba County:
East Burke 2, Bandys 1
