Clarksville, TN – Despite only one District 10-AAA loss so far this season, Clarksville High School’s softball team went into this week needing to defeat both of its two closest challengers to wrap up the regular-season title.
Well, the Lady Wildcats (26-13, 12-1 District 10-AAA) are half way to that goal after their April 22nd 12-2 victory over Kenwood High School.

The pick-off play came right after West Creek (13-13, 4-7 District 10-AAA) had a runner tagged out on a missed suicide-squeeze attempt for the second out of the seventh inning.
