It’s been a while since I had time to sit down and put some thoughts into a column in this paper. This week, I’ve seen and heard enough stuff to give me some motivation to break out the column and interject my two cents into things. I think I’ll start out at the Trigg County Recreation Complex where my pal Monty Stagner put the weather jinx on us a couple weeks back after his diatribes about the cold weather. We got a nice afternoon at the complex and Monty opens his mouth and says how great it is. The next time we get a home game we get washed out by rain and then it gets cold on Saturday when we play a double header against Union County and St. Mary’s. Then the Wildcats play another home game on the following Monday against Crittenden and it’s cold and windy again, fortunately, it got warm at Murray the next Day in Monty’s absence but the Wildcats fell to the Tigers of Murray. Ok enough about Monty and the weather- sounds like a good story title though. A few kudos are over due to Coach Jackie Sholar and the Wildcats Baseball time for a great recovery from a 1-5 start to now being 8-7 Impressive wins against Lyon County and two Clarksville, Tenn. schools in the last week showed the potential for another district title in the Wildcats future.

Now many of you have seen a lot of mentions of these next two guys in our paper in the photos here in The Cadiz Record, but over the last two weeks these two guys have stepped up big, Don Bush has been pitching stellar and hitting like a “Major Leaguer” including two homeruns in one inning against St. Mary’s. A guy who not only catches for Don Bush but relieved him on the mound. He caught 11 innings and then pitched the last two as a reliever. Best know to fans as Will Stagner, the guy is clutch as clutch can be knocking in the winning runs in Saturdays first game then three runs in the second game.

The Wildcats’ week ahead does not get any easier as they go to Crittenden County on Thursday, come home to host UHA on Friday, and then play a doubleheader at Hoptown on Saturday. First, they face Hopkinsville at 1 p.m. then Greenwood at 3 p.m. On Monday, the Wildcats return to “The Complex” to face Lyon County and the take a bus ride over to Dawson Springs on Tuesday the 29th.

Now Monday night out at “The Complex,” I got to meet several parents of members of the Lady Cats softball team for the first time and it was nice to meet most of you. It this point I need to make a apology to my friend Dakota Littlejohn a.k.a “Koty” not as I have been spelling it “Cody.” At least they knew who I was talking about to tell you I spelled it wrong, I’m sorry “Koty”.
