Wildcats Win 2016 County Softball Tournament for the Fourth Straight Time

Domination. This is the word that comes to mind when I think of the Hayden Lady Wildcats. In the past seven years, Hayden has won five county championships, one state title, and was the 5A runner-up in 2015. Over the last four seasons, the Lady Wildcats have a combined record of 151-25, averaging almost thirty-eight wins a season. In the 2016 county softball tournament, the domination continued. Hayden defeated J.B. Pennington in the semi-finals to advance to the championship, sending the Tigers to the loser’s bracket. J.B. Pennington fought their way back, defeating Locust Fork 3-0, to set up a rematch with Hayden in the championship game. In the finals, Hayden nor Pennington wasted any time getting started. Brooke Meadows, UNA commit, led off for the Wildcats with a single. Meadows would later steal 2nd base and score Hayden’s first run. Hayden went on to score two more runs before Pennington was able to get out of the at-bat. The Tigers responded with two runs of their own in the bottom of the first, but it would be the last time they would touch home plate for the remainder of the game. Hayden scored nine runs in the second inning behind Tori Knighten’s three-run double and Meadow’s three-run homer to take a commanding 12-2 lead. Hayden’s Sharley Miller, also a UNA commit, added a two-run double in the fourth inning as Meadow’s padded her stats once more with a RBI single. After four innings, the Wildcats had a 16-2 lead and would add one more in the fifth to wrap up their fourth straight county championship, 17-2.
