Before the game, seniors Ryleigh Vanhoose and Sydney Miller were honored. While Miller has seen limited playing time this season, Vanhoose has been a key cog in GRC’s lineup. She is currently second on the team in batting average (.367) and RBIs (13).

The Lady Cards snapped their three-game losing streak on Tuesday with a 5-2 road victory over the Estill County Lady Engineers.

GRC was defeated the Madison Southern Lady Eagles in a road bird battle, 12-10, on Wednesday.

They will close the regular season with a road game against Fredrick Douglass on Friday and a home contest against Grant County on Saturday before taking on the Bourbon County Lady Colonels next Monday in the 40th District Tournament.
