    The Henry County Lady Cats hosted Eminence in the final district seeding game of the season on May 7. A lot was at stake in the game.

A win for Henry County meant they would get the two seed, Carroll would get the three seed and Eminence would get the four seed.

    The game started with Eminence jumping ahead 1-0 in the top of the first inning.
