    The Eminence Warriors baseball team faced Gallatin County in the first round of the district tournament May 18 and fell to the Wildcats 10-0 in six innings.

    The Warriors were held to one hit in the game and Gallatin County had 14 hits.

    But the statistics were deceptive as Eminence hit several hard balls right at the defense and Gallatin County got the benefit of several bloop hits that found empty space. The Wildcats played almost flawless defense while the Warriors had two errors.
