Lady Cats slide past Lady Tigers on Senior night
Lady Cats slide past Lady Tigers on Senior night

The McNairy Central Lady Bobcats ended the regular season well with a big win against the Bolivar Lady Tigers on Senior night. 

McNairy Central 7

The Lady Bobcats faced off against the Lady Tigers on their senior night, and it was a pitcher’s duel from the very beginning. 

Kelly Beth Ernest got the call to the circle for the Lady Bobcats once again, and she pitched another great game for the Lady Cats. 

Ernest was able to keep the Lady Tigers off balance for the length of the game, and was able to record four strikeouts while only allowing four hits. 

Although Ernest was pitching well, the Lady Bobcats were having troubles getting the bats to come together. 

Fortunately for the Lady Cats, that did not last the entire game. 

As the bottom of the sixth inning came around, the Lady Cats exploded on offense, and they were able to push seven runs across taking a huge lead over the Lady Tigers. 

Moving into the top of the seventh inning, Ernest kept up her good work on the mound and she was able to shut the Lady Tigers down. 

The Lady Cats took home the big win on Senior night, and they were looking to carry the momentum on into the district tournament.

It appears that McNairy County dodged a bullet early this week as a strong series of storms moved through McNairy County beginning last Sunday night and extending into Tuesday. 

As of press time the storms had spawned more than 106 tornados and claimed more than 28 lives in several states. 

The storms began west of the Mississippi River on Sunday as 30 tornados struck in several western states claiming more 16 lives. As the storms moved into Mississippi and Alabama on Monday, another round of 58 tornados brought destruction to those states including a mile-wide tornado which struck the commercial district of Tupelo, Miss. near the city’s mall. The shopping area, popular with McNairy County shoppers, on Tupelo’s northern edge sustained severe damage. Several popular restaurants, stores and hotels were completely destroyed in the storm.
