2015 Ladyhound Softball Team Rewrites the Record Books

 
This year's softball team has done what no other team has done at Paris in fast pitch history: they defeated Bourbon County ending an 88 game losing streak to district competitors, 32 of which were to Bourbon County.  In addition, the team has placed third in two different tournaments, won the Bluegrass Conference Tournament for the first time since the Ladyhounds became a participant, scored more runs than any other Paris softball team in a single season, saw a five game winning streak, broke the school record for the most number of wins in a single season, hit the most triples in a single game (6), and had a pitcher throw a perfect game.  The ladies look to end the regular season 4-0 for the week of May 11th before heading into district competition versus George Rogers Clark on Wednesday, May 20th at 5:30 in Montgomery County.
