  • Gilley makes the Wright choice

    Keeping a familiar face in charge of one of the most successful teams in the county, Henry County High School Athletics Director Todd Gilley hired Matt Wright to head the school’s softball program.

    Wright has been an assistant coach for the Ladycats for three seasons (2006-2008) and was the head football coach at Beth Haven for one season (2008). He takes over the program from Suzanne Cates, who resigned last June following her one year in charge. In what Gilley describes as an easy choice, Wright was hired just one month later.

They play the state’s top-ranked team, Ballard, in the opening round of the state tournament Wednesday at 1:30 p.m. inside Rupp Arena in Lexington.
