  • Bobcats take two from Midway

    Midway High School has a reputation as one of the toughest places for visitors to play in the area as entering Saturday’s doubleheader with Oliver Springs, the Green Wave had won 20 straight games at home dating back to the 2010 season.
    That home field advantage didn’t intimidate the Bobcats, however, as Tony Kegley’s squad swept the Green Wave, winning game one, 9-1, and game two, 9-8.
    “It’s big to come in here and get a sweep,” Kegley said. “They’re really tough at home and hadn’t lost a game at home this year”.
