The 2024 Lady Cats of Wayne County High School have set the bar at a new level in softball. They traveled to Murfreesboro, TN last week to participate in the State Championship Tournament for the first time in school history. After taking the Region Championship, and then defeating Huntingdon in a sub-state match-up, the Lady Cats took on Wartburg Central on Tuesday, May 21 in the first found of tournament action. The team fell short by a score of 3-1 which sent them to the losers bracket. On Wednesday, May 22, in an early contest with Halls High School, history was again achieved as the gals defeated their opponent 3-2. To reach this level of competative play was a milestone in itself, but now they found themselves in the winning column. As the parents, fans, and community braced during a rematch with Wartburg Central later that afternoon, the skies opened up and unleashed a show-stopping storm in early innings. The Lady Cats would have to sleep on a 1-0 lead to resume a game that would begin early Thursday morning. In an absolute battle to the end, Wartburg Central took the victory over Wayne County, 5-4, bringing our home team’s season to an end.
There are not enough words that can be spoken to describe the sense of pride this group of young ladies, under the leadership of a great coaching staff, have embedded in the hearts and minds of Wildcat Nation. Many have commented that they have been following this group since their younger days playing in Dixie Youth at the state and World Series level. What a year it has been for Lady Cats athletics, especially considering that some of these players are the same ones who recently played in the State Tournament in basketball.
Congratulations are in order to the Lady Cats on an unforgetable season. We thank you for sharing your journey with us.
