The Lady Cards (8-16) picked up a crucial 7-5 victory over the Bourbon County Lady Colonels in Paris on Tuesday. The win improved the team’s record against district foes to 4-2 and guarantees them the no. 2 seed in the upcoming 40th District Tournament.

The Lady Cards played Rowan County at home on Wednesday but were bested 3-0 by the visitors from the 16th Region. GRC hits the road on Thursday for a clash with Franklin County.
