Daviess County (28-6) v Meade County (27-8)
Time: Noon

Daviess County will look to carry its momentum from a 9th District Championship win into its matchup with Meade County.

The Lady Panthers offense was clicking on all cylinders against Owensboro Catholic, rattling their bats en route to a 7-5 win.

Daviess County have had no shortage of offense as of late, with Jessie Daniels and Miller Roberts both totaling 11 home runs on the season and a number of players hitting over .300. 

With four straight wins under their belt, Daviess County will look to advance when they take on Meade County on Saturday, June 5.

Owensboro Catholic (20-13) v Muhlenberg County (14-12)
Time: 2 p.m.

The Lady Aces come into this game off of a tough 9th District Championship loss looking to switch things up in order to defeat Hancock County

Owensboro Catholic fell to Daviess County 7-5 in their previous game, as they couldn’t get anything going consistently at the plate.

And each time the Lady Aces had a response, the Lady Panthers had an answer, holding off their comeback attempt.

With Brooke Hamilton and Alexis Hatchett handling the duties in the circle in their previous game, one could expect Hadley Phelps to get the starting nod against Muhlenberg County.

She owns a record of 8-8 with an ERA of 2.65, having started in 15 of her 18 appearances on the season.

The Lady Aces will look to turn it around when they take on Muhlenberg County on Saturday, June 5.

Trinity (14-16) v Hancock County (21-14)
Time: 4 p.m.

Trinity will look to bounce back from a rough fielding performance that led to a 7-3 12th District Championship loss when they take on Hancock County.

The Lady Raiders had multiple errors that cost them runs, an unlikely source of events that Head Coach Jack Melton and company didn’t see coming.

They’ll look to turn that around when Allie Barnett most likely returns to the circle to start, as she has started in 18 of her 25 appearances this season.

Trinity was able to string together multiple hits early on, but over time they couldn’t find a way to combat a rising fastball from Butler County.

With a dominant top half of the lineup, the Lady Raiders will look to take lessons from that early success in their previous game and apply it to their matchup with Hancock County.
