Logan board takes steps toward added athletic facilities at LCHS

A proposed additional athletic facility on the grounds of Logan County High School came closer to being a reality at a special called meeting of the board of education Thursday. The board approved a project application and hired a Hopkinsville-based architectural firm to design the 27,000-square foot structure. It will be designed as a home for archery and marching band practices along with locker rooms and restrooms. Superintendent Paul Mullins told the Daily News that track and cross country facilities could also be added soon. Archery does not have a home of its own, and the band has been practicing on football and soccer areas. The original track, which surrounds the football field, hasn't been usable for several years. The cross country track, which was one of the best in the region, was lost when construction began last year on the technology center.

Franklin teams beat Logan in both diamond district finals

Franklin-Simpson softball and baseball players had been looking forward to a chance to get revenge against Logan County teams. They got it Tuesday night in the championship games of the 13th District diamond tournaments at Russellville. The Lady Kats were beaten 13-2 by the Lady Cougars on April 25, but they were without star pitcher Madison Davis that day. Davis struck out 10 Lady Cougars in a come-from-behind 6-3 win in the championship game. That overshadowed a spectacular outing for Logan freshman Brea Croslin, who hit two solo homers plus a single off Davis, and also threw out one potential tying runner with catcher Kennedy Nichols making a tough tag.
In baseball, the Logan County Cougars had beaten F-S twice behind the dominant pitching of junior southpaw Ethan Smock. Franklin players were hoping, however, that Smock would pitch against them one more time because they had so much experience batting against him. They got their wish. They scored six runs against him in the first two innings and went on to win the championship by a 9-0 score. Winning pitcher Rylan Thomas and Jackson Caudill homered for the Cats.
All four teams will advance to next week’s regional tournaments at WKU.

Lady Kat pitcher Madison Davis threw a 2-hitter against RHS, striking out 11 and walking none. Ally Pendleton and Jessie Bellar led the F-S offense. The two hits Davis allowed were to Tonisha Hampton & Cierra Collins to lead off the RHS sixth, but Davis struck out Lilly Newman and Tara Gilbert while geting Brooklyn Ray to ground out to smother Russellville's only scoring threat. Seniors Macy Meacham, Tiffany Gray, Madison Keezel, Gilbert &Collins saw their high school careers come to an end.
