    Playing at Carroll County High School, Henry’s 3-1 loss to Gallatin marked the first time the Ladycats had lost the district title since the state’s realignment, when they were placed from the 30th District to the 31st in 2006. They were 11-0 in the tournament since the switch, and had won the title in 2006-2010.
