Former Wildcat Baseball Head Coach Bo West was honored before tonight's game against Caverna at Wildcat Field. He was gifted a special bat by the Wildcat Boosters as he was recognized for his years of hard work as a coach for the baseball program.
West started his coaching career at Edmonson County in 2009 as an assistant, but took on the role of head coach in 2010 where he remained until 2021. Coach West had a record of 162 wins and 159 losses during his career, securing two district runner-up titles, and also the first district title (2021) for the Wildcat since 1988.
Wildcat Baseball Booster President Stewart Lich said "Coach Bo poured hundreds of hours of work into the Wildcat Baseball program over the years. It was an easy decision to honor his legacy at the last regular game this season. We all want to thank him and his wife Meredith for everything they have done on and off the field over the years."
Coach West expressed his gratitude for the players, their parents, and the community. "I truly miss all those past and present kids, and I appreciate their hard work," he said. "I have so many relationships I have made here over the years that will last a lifetime, and I am eternally grateful for that. Thank you to all my former players, current players, and their parents for treating me so well over the years. I love you all."

Wildcat Senior Minyard Tops List For Batting Average, Lady Cat Senior Henderson Makes Home Run List

Two Edmonson County athletes are among the best in the state, one of which sits atop the list for batting average.
Senior Gavyn Minyard, a pitcher and infielder for the Edmonson County Wildcats is currently the state leader for batting average in the 2022 season with an astounding .619.
In addition, he is also on the list for number of hits this season, ranked #18 with a total of 39 base hits with 69 at-bats.
Minyard also leads the Wildcats in several team categories in addition to average, with 9 total extra-base hits, (3 HR, 2 triples, 4 doubles), RBIs (28) and stolen bases (14).
Lady Cat senior Alexa Henderson is currently #11 in the state for season homeruns with 9. She surpassed Paige Carnes' record of 12 career homeruns (2014) earlier this season and is currently the school leader with a total number of 18 for her high school career. It's also important to note that she has accomplished this in only a season-and-a-half.
With one more HR, she will also hold the record for most homeruns in a single season, exclusively. She is currently tied with Carnes who hit 9 in 2013, according to available school records.
She is only the third Lady Cat in school history to hit two homeruns in the same game, and has achieved this multiple times. In addition, she is also one of five players in team history to achieve a grand slam.
Wildcats Demolish Cavera 26-0
Yes, you read that correctly--the Wildcats defeated Caverna last night 26-0 in three innings.
The Colonels were simply out-matched by the Cats last night as Caverna struggled on both offense and defense. The Wildcats put up 14 hits and only one error while Caverna managed only 2 hits while committing 3 errors.
Caverna's pitcher earned 6 hit batsmen, 7 multiple wild pitches, and 10 walks. When he was throwing strikes, the Wildcats made him pay.
Edmonson County put up 7 extra base hits, including triples from Hunter Wilson and Gavyn Minyard, and doubles from also Wilson, Minyard, and Andrew Talley, Cole Baxter, and John Michael Meredith.
Edmonson County is 13-9 on the season and is scheduled to take on Hart County on Thursday, which will be senior night for the Wildcats.

Edmonson County won their third district game of the season last night at James "Woody" Woodcock Field at ECHS against the Grayson County Lady Cougars, 6-3.
Freshman pitcher Julie Norris pitched a complete game for the Lady Cats, giving up 3 earned runs on 5 hits, 5 strikeouts, and no walks.
Senior Alexa Henderson, who went 3-4 with a double and two singles, knocked in a couple of runs to get numbers on the board first for the Lady Cats as they led 2-0 after one.
Three singles by the Lady Cats in the second inning helped their cause, along with a Grayson County error, and they were able to take a 5-0 lead going into the third.
After a Lady Cougar was hit by a pitch, she scored on a double two batters later. Grayson County was able to put a couple more up on the board in the 5th but it wasn't enough as the Lady Cats held on for the win.
In addition to Henderson's offense, senior Hallie Cassady went 2-3, and Annie Kiper, Taylor Minyard, Makayla Hogg, Skylar Hawks, and Rayleigh Moon each notched singles against the Lady Cougars.
Edmonson County is now 8-12 on the season and 3-3 in district play. They are scheduled to take on Metcalfe County tonight at 5:30 at home.
