The Letcher County Central Lady Cougars softball team won four games last week to improve their record 10-2 on the season while remaining undefeated in district play.

The Lady Cougars opened up the week with a 14-2 win over Leslie County. The Lady Cougars scored 14 runs on 13 hits and held the Lady Eagles to two runs on six hits. Adiah Cook struck out six. Chloe Wynn hit a grad slam homerun.

On April 23, the Lady Cougars traveled to Knott County and won in five innings, 15-2. Adiah Cook gave up her first walk of the season, but also struck out six.

April 24 was another big day for the Lady Cougars when they beat visiting Harlan. The Lady Dragons got an early lead in the first inning by scoring one run on two hits, but their lead was short lived.

The Lady Cougars responded by scoring nine runs with hits from Chloe Wynn, Lisa Frazier, Katey Mynster, Micca Boggs, Haley Caudill and Kayla Burton. In the second inning the Lady Dragons got a runner on base, but left her stranded on first.
