    The BHS Lady Jackets, off to a 6-0 start with six shutouts on the season, have even surprised third-year coach Bob Bowen.

    “We’ve played well, but I didn’t know at this point we would be undefeated on the season,” he said. “I think what is giving us a spark is that we have our share of players who have been in our program three years.”
