To get to the championship game, they defeated Pleasure Ridge Park, Breckinridge County and the Mustangs of McCracken County.
Next weekend, the final state champion of the year for the KHSAA will be crowned as the girls will take over Lexington for the state softball championship. That tournament was supposed to be this weekend as well, but due to weather they pushed it to next weekend.
Male, Boyle County, Madisonville-North Hopkins, Clay County, Ashland Blazer, Warren East, Pendleton County and Central Hardin will all compete to take home the crown.
