Spring sports kicked off in Trigg County last week when the Lady Wildcat softball team played the Wildcat baseball team in the annual Diamond Duel.
The Diamond Duel was to get fans out to the complex to cheer on these teams as they competed against each other. It also allowed fans to get a glimpse of the athletes Trigg County has playing on the field this season.
The Wildcats took a commanding lead, but the Lady 'Cats battled back with some big hits in the fifth inning. Still, it wasn't quite enough, as the Wildcats defeated the Lady 'Cats, 8-6.
Having preview games like these helps the athletes practice and also lets them have fun doing it. Lady Wildcat Coach Toree Rogers (softball) said she was very optimistic about the upcoming season. Wildcat Coach Tim Bush (baseball) also looked forward to the season ahead.
