    She’s rained out plenty of games, and left fields soggy enough that they just weren’t playable. And last week against Williamstown, she threw a wild, windy fit.

    But the Wildcats play on, when Mother Nature permits, of course.

    “Our toughest opponent this year has been the weather,” coach Austin Hunsaker said.

    With a 16-7 record, the Henry County High School girls softball team could say they’re pretty good.
