        HEBRON ESTATES - An old-fashioned pitchers’ duel that saw just ten hits combined, showed just how close the top teams are this season in 24th District softball play.

        “I just want to thank my family for being behind me and pushing me,” the 17-year old son of Pam and Joey Williamson said before the more formal ceremony in the Bullitt Central library last week.
