The McNairy Central Lady Bobcats had a tough run last week in two games against the Adamsville Lady Cardinals and the Chester County Lady Eagles.
The dugout is crowded with injured players and has forced McNairy to make changes and overcome obstacles in one of school year’s busiest months.
Before last Thursday night, the Bobcats had not beaten the Cardinals on the baseball field since March 13, 2006.
After a controversial finish, McNairy Central tasted victory over its nemesis for the first time in over six years, and Head Coach Brian Franks was happy to have the proverbial monkey off his back.
“Finally got them,” Bobcat head coach Brain Franks said after the game. “Adamsville’s got a great ball team and it could have went either way.”
In recent weeks there have been several fundraising events which combined have raised more than $65,000 for the community.
The Tennessee River Old Iron Tractor Club held its O.F. Wagoner Memorial Tractor Show last Saturday at the Stantonville Community Center.
The event kicked of around 5 a.m. and featured more than 92 pieces including tractors, engines and miniatures as well as music and food.
