North Platte Bulldog athletics return to ESPN Radio 1410 tonight with the first event of the 2010-2011 prep sports season. The Bulldog softball team is in Hastings for a doubleheader against Omaha Skutt Catholic and Omaha Gross Catholic. Coach B.J. Songster’s Bulldogs are coming off a season that saw them finish 17-13, with a runner-up finish in their district tournament. They’ll face their toughest test of the day right off the bat against Skutt’s Skyhawks, who are ranked second in Class B in the Omaha World-Herald’s Preseason Poll. The defending third-place finishers in Class B are 1-1 after beating Bellevue West and losing to Papio South last night. Gross Catholic is 2-2 on the season. ESPN Radio 1410 will carry both games tonight, with the Kwik Stop Pregame Show getting things underway at 4:15.
Eagle Radio North Platte is now going to carry Hershey Panther games on the radio @ 107.3 FM. Michael Reed will be the voice of the Panthers on Q Country. Watch the TV commercial here
