The Tigers (14-1) have seemingly been on the road for what feels like forever. The road trip continues, as they travel to Letcher County for the 6thannual Wizard of Ozz Classic Tournament. There, Clay County will clash with Central (Norton) VA, Jackson City, and Perry County Central. The ensuing Monday, the Tigers will return home for two games, squaring off with Whitley County and Knox Central.
Jackson City – (11-4) The 14thregion’s 2ndbest team by record, the Jackson City Lady Tigers will meet Clay County head on at the Wizard of Ozz Classic to lead off a doubleheader. Jackson City is a very strong offensive team, as they have only one hitter below a .300 batting average. This group puts the ball in play consistently, forcing you to make plays defensively. This will be a solid test for the Tigers. This game is at Letcher Central High School, Friday, April 19th. First pitch is set for 6:45PM.
Central (Norton, VA) – No stats or record were available for the Norton, VA, however this Clay County group knows to never overlook anyone, period. They will surely come out battle-ready, and with an all business mindset. This game is at Letcher Central High School, Friday, April 19th. First pitch is set for 8:15PM.
Perry County Central – (7-6) This Commodore squad ranks near the middle of the pack in the 14thregion, but are competitive nonetheless. Perry Central always boasts talent in any sport they play, and softball will be no different. Expect this group to come ready to play, ready to give the Tigers all they can handle. This game is at Letcher Central High School, Saturday, April 20th. First pitch is set for 1:00PM.
Whitley County – (6-10) The Colonels are deceptively much better than their record shows. Despite a bumpy start to the season after enduring a four-game losing skid, Whitley County is on the upswing. They’re a bit of an enigma, but will be all fired up to meet the region’s best in Clay County. This game is at Clay County, Monday, April 22nd. First pitch is set for 6:00PM.
Knox Central – (3-5) The Panthers are near the bottom of the pack in the 13thregion, and this game should be nothing more than a rest day/confidence booster for the Tigers. However, softball is like the weather, it’s unpredictable. What this game should be, versus what it couldbe are two different things. Expect Clay to handle their business, however. This game is at Clay County, Tuesday, April 23rd. First pitch is set for 6:00PM.
