NFL Draft: Must See TV
I have watched the NFL draft for years as a fan and a fantasy football player looking for an edge. I think it is hands down, the best draft of the major pro sports. Apparently, this year I was joined by a record breaking number of NFL draft enthusiasts.
The Lady Wildcat’s outstanding starting pitcher, Heather Norris, got a complete game shutout victory with the help of some excellent defense played by her teammates.
“I was proud of the girls. I thought defensively, that was the best defense they played all year,” Lady Wildcat’s head coach Brian Rush said. “There were a lot of bang-bang plays and our girls never flinched.”
Clarksville, TN – For the third time in three days, the Clarksville High Lady Wildcats and the Northeast Lady Eagles faced off. But this time, after the last echo of a softball coming off an aluminum bat faded and the red dust kicked up from slides settled, a District 10-AAA Tournament Champion was crowned.
The Lady Wildcats held off a late rally by the Lady Eagles to win the final District 10-AAA Tournament Championship game, 8-6.
McKenzie Rose hit a three-run homer in her first at bat to give the Lady Wildcats a 4-1 lead at the bottom of the first inning. Going into the sixth, the Lady Wildcats had expanded their lead to 6-2.
